Shutterturf is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
The Shutterturf team handpicks the best-selling, most interesting, most desired camera gear and other products on the web. We do not list products solely for a commission. Our goal is to show the best content possible, and if a product happens to have an affiliate program, we’ll apply it, but it has no impact on our decision-making. We won’t post a recommendation unless our team has deemed something the best through research.
We earn money through various affiliate marketing programs. That means we may get paid commissions on products purchased through our links to retailer sites. However, we recommend products based on our independent research and analysis. There’s no incentive for us to pick inferior products or to respond to pressure from manufacturers—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. If a reader returns their purchase because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, we make no affiliate commission. We think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps us committed to serving our readers first. And of course, the decisions we make regarding the products we feature on our site are always driven by product analysis, not by affiliate deals or advertising relationships.
Affiliate links do not impact your cost as a consumer in anyway. Your cost to purchase goods is the same regardless of our affiliate links.
