Did you know that June 29 is National Camera Day? Well, not many people do! But it is a thing - and celebrated on the same every day... a bit like National Egg Day, Ugliest Dog Day, and International Asteroid Day that also apparently take place every year in June.

Here at Digital Camera World, we celebrate cameras and photography every day of the year, but we are very happy to call out this day in particular, especially since this year, June 29, falls on the weekend!
