That means both the digital cameras and their digital video cameras are being discontinued. Which means there will be no Zi12 PlayFul Dual as we were anticipating later this year. This is a sad day – The Kodak Zi8 and Zi10 were staples in my bag. Now, with no additional upgrades, I will have to hold on to my cameras a little closer.

Four Bloggers Walking Vegas Strip – Interop

I have been to Vegas before, but never really did the “tourist” thing. Bob, Greg and especially Aaron (who has never been to Vegas) wanted to walk around and see the sights. We started by going from Four Seasons, to the tram and to the monorail to about mid-point in Caesar’s Palace. We then walked back to Mandalay Bay, while seeing all the great images the strip had to offer. It was a fun time and even I got to see stuff I haven’t before.
