Press Release: Fotonation Demonstrates “Smilecheck™” Technology For Digital Cameras

Just got forwarded this press release (I get tons of them on a daily basis - I'm only 1 man, so I only pass along the interesting ones) and thought it was worth mentioning and might generate some discussion. "SmileCheck" enables a new type of picture taking mode called “Smile Shutter” in digital cameras. Once the camera’s trigger button is depressed, the shutter is not engaged until smiles are detected on all faces within the frame, ensuring photos with all smiles. Read the full press release below, and then I'd love to hear your thoughts on this technology advancement - think of it - is this a dream come true for portrait photographers, or what??!

Corner Compilation #3

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally to the point where I can start catching up on photography industry news. Some of this news dates back over 2 months, but better late than never, eh? I’ll try not to cram too much into each Corner Compilation post, so expect about 10-12 “bits of news” in each compilation. Hopefully I’ll be all caught up in a matter of weeks (cross your fingers). Enjoy the news (mostly Delkin and Lowepro this time around, but trust me, there’s a lot more coming)!

Corner Compilation #2

Here’s another round of interesting/essential photography-related news.

Corner Compilation #1

There is a lot of news in the world of photography. When I started this blog, I subscribed to as many newsletters, rss feeds, press release sources, industry news, blogs, etc. as I could, so that, if it was happening in the photography industry, I would know about it and could, therefore, pass along all the good stuff to you. A month and a half later, I have 2,698 items sitting in my rss feed reader, which makes me about 2+ weeks behind on the news. Now, if I wanted to catch up, you’d end up having 25 posts a day for the next 3 days (assuming I spent all day posting on the blog, of course), and no one wants that - You don’t want to have to read 75 posts in three days any more than I want to write that many.
