Nikon D400

The Nikon D400 will probably be the follow-up name to the Nikon D300 series DSLR. However, rumors of a Nikon D300s suggest that it may appear before the D400.

10 Free Prints from Wal-Mart

I don't print from Wal-Mart and don't necessarily recommend it. But if you use it here's 10 free prints to the first taker.

1. Go to
2. Enter this code: 5P52-4AUV-UP52-UZT9
3. No account? Create one so Wal-Mart can credit it.
4. Add your photos to and order.
5. Redeemed credits will be applied toward your prints at checkout.
6. Place your comment on this post so I can tell folks that the code has been used.
7. Enjoy.

If you're wondering, the code came from a Duracell battery charger. That Canon 420EX of mine really eats the AA's. It'll save the wallet in the long run.

Photoshop CS3 Beta Release

If you haven’t gotten your beta release of the new free Photoshop CS3 public beta yet, get it now (for Windows or Mac).  Wired has the scoop on the release.  Adobe has been more than generous with the Lightroom public betas.  However, I should warn you that I think Adobe is stringing us along like a crack dealer by giving us a free peek at the goods only to cut us off when we get addicted.  If you shoot RAW and haven’t tried Lightroom yet, you should.  It’s all I use for my RAW workflow and I know I’ll be shelling out the two or three hundred bones for the final release after the beta has expired.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2

Popular Photography has a nice review of the new Point and Shoot from Panasonic, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2. Overall, they seem pretty impressed with it. From the article:
This is a compact for control freaks. Besides aperture- and shutter-priority modes, it offers full manual, with shutter speeds from 1/2000 to 60 sec and a very useful screen graph showing over- or underexposure. It can bracket exposures, too. Scene modes include Night Portrait, Starry Sky, Soft Skin, and even Food. And in autoexposure mode, there's a backlight compensation feature that works even without the flash popped up.
Even more impressive to me is the capability of capturing in RAW format on a point and shoot. At just over 400 bones, you get quite the package for the price of admission.
