The good old days to the norm with compact image transmition devices

I have to say I really enjoyed this post as it reminded me of when I was working as a sports photographer for a national press agency. It is also strange to think that photographers use common solutions to their problems, as I have been using the Pocket Phojo and a PDA for the last year to do remote transmitions, with the Nikon D2x or … Continue reading The good old days to the norm with compact image transmition devices
