Two Announcements for PhotoNetCast

As many of you know, I participate in a group photography podcast with three other individuals. This week, we have a couple of important announcements that I’d like to bring up.


In our last episode, we talked with the folks from ATP Electronics about their “Photofinder Mini” GPS tagging unit. It looks like a great little product for anybody interested in geotagging, and we’re giving one away for free! We’re also giving away 8 SD memory cards! If you want in on the action, head over to Episode 17 and check it out before December 7, 2008.


In early December, we’ll be talking with a product manager for Lightroom, Tom Hogarty. But before we speak with him, we’d like to give all of you the opportunity to post some questions for Tom. So if you have anything you’d like to ask about Lightroom (and have it answered by Adobe), be sure to head over to the “Ask Your Questions” post at PhotoNetCast. Oh, and if you’d like to hear your own voice on the podcast, you can send us a pre-recorded Lightroom question as an MP3 and we’ll play it during the show.
