New Year's wishes


Mark Peters : 2004-12-31 09:00:00
Like many others, at the end of a year, also the LetsGoDigital Team looks back on the past year. And, it must be said: it has been a fantastic year for LetsGoDigital with many heights and peeks, amongst them the French edition, the new lay-out of the website, clearer, better organized and improved, and of course the live reports from various shows. The year kicked off with the CES show, http://www.ces-show.com. The LetsGoDigital team brought to you the heights of this show, and right after that took off to visit the PMA show in Las Vegas. A live report can be found here: http://www.pma-show.com. Also a live coverage was reported from the Cebit show in Hannover, Germany, and of course from the Photokina, Cologne.

Merry Christmas 2004 - A small Christmas story


Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-25 00:28:20
It's dark outside, very dark. People hurry through the cold to get their hands on the last X-mas presents. A digital camera, a memory card, these items will surely be found under the Christmas tree again this year?. We also hear people express their hopes and expectations like: "Will we finally have a white Christmas this year?" and: "When will we have peace on earth for everybody?". Christmas is a time for retrospection, for calling a halt to the hectic life and finding yourself again, for experiencing the miracle of the birth of an innocent child, that was to be a king one day. In the darkest time of the year, there is hope, there is expectation and light. The LetsGoDigital Team wishes you a very merry Christmas!

Welcome to Nikon Pro Online Winter 2004/5


Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-17 18:27:22
Robert Cristina, Marketing Executive SLR Systems Nikon Europe: "The last few months have seen some significant news for professional photographers with the announcement of a replacement for the much-loved D1x and - what was a surprise for many - the 35mm Nikon F6. The new cameras underline what professionals have been telling us: that film continues to be used alongside digital according to the needs of the assignment or the client. The F6 makes this job easier by using a similar layout and menus so that digital and film SLRs can be used side-by-side with minimum interruption. Professionals also tell us that no two assignments or clients are the same."

Digital Photo Printers go back to the future


Dennis Hissink : 2004-11-17 07:46:33
It's a digital photographer's brain-teaser: If you have a high-megapixel camera and need to print pro-quality photos and proofs, do you spend time calibrating and re-adjusting your printer to get consistent photos? Or just buy a gift basket for your photo lab manager? This month's Kodak Tech Brief focuses on the growing use of dye-sublimation printers in home- and small-office photo applications. Pro photographers and advanced amateurs love producing their own high-quality prints, but such high-end printers, which use a continuous-tone ribbon and thermal print head instead of multiple inkjet tanks, were priced above $1,000. Kodak designers, who pioneered thermal dye-sub printers for commercial uses a decade ago, stepped back to the future.
