At the recent Photo & Film Expo Greg and I took some time to talk to some interesting people including Kelvin Reynolds, Regional Manager-Southern Africa for Epson and Kristin Saus-Opuszynski who is the Senior Business Manager for Prophoto: Epson Europe and was part of the design team for the highly successful (not to forget award winning) R3000 and R2000 printers. We sat down for a discussion on Epson, printing etc. After the break are some points we have taken out of the discussion.

We got the following press release late last week following a meeting with Samsung South Africa. We tried to get our hands on the new NX200 then but were informed the only units in the country presently are samples. We have been told to expect a production unit for review in the next week or two though and are a looking forward to it. The official press release for its South African arrival of the NX200 at the end of the month is after the break.

I have a fascination with time lapse and when I come across one that is this good I have to share it. This is a masterpiece and you can learn more about the photographer who created it over at Mashable’s website who made this one of their videos of the day.
