Viva Las Vegas – Digital Focus

For every day , there is a night. And more gear to check out.


Tonight was the Digital Focus event with Chinese theme. Fun, Dim Sum, music…. and some cool new products.


From Canon, a new portable printer SELPHY ES1

Bluetooth capable, small footprint, optional battery, LCD screen, 28 cents a print, 60 secs per print. Approx. $249 coming in April.

And then:
Every company making color calibration tools (X-Rite and Spyder/Colorvision) are trying to make it all more accessible for you: better software ,lower price, etc.

In a nutshell, it helps the prints you make look like the image on your computer screen. Nothing is more frustrating than working on a image in your software of choice, only to have your expensive printer turn out a print that looks nothing like what you saw on the screen. I know first hand.
They are here to help. You should take them up on it. I did, and I’m wasting less paper and ink. And frustrating energy.

More on those companies later.

The good folks of Shutterfly continue their dominance of the user friendly land of self published greeting cards, calendars, and other general photo items. Most of the cards we recieved at the holidays had the quality mark of Shutterfly on the back. Kind of like Hallmark, but from our friends.
They introduced a keepsake box that unless you believed in the brand quality of Shutterfly already, you are buying blind.Fear not. I handled one and it was well made.
Up to you to put the right images on top.
Check out the Shutterfly Studio for more.

Speak to you tomorrow.
