...and Welcome to a New Sponsor, DSC Labs!

Thanks to the generosity of DSC Labs (www.dsclabs.com), our winners will also be sent one of these:


I was looking for some prizes unique and specific to outdoors shooters and Michael Kent at DSC Labs offered these. The CamFocus cards are a great little tool, because you can wear them around your neck, they're highly portable, weigh next to nothing, and they will help you establish consistent white balance and critical focus.

If you shoot outdoors in variable lighting conditions, it is an invaluable tool. I bought a used card on DVinfo about a million years ago, and I use it almost daily. It's pretty much a staple of my kit.

Thanks, DSC Labs, and welcome to our contest....

They have an interesting contest which they run through their own website. I wish I had known about it before I went to Bhutan. I coulda been a contender! Maybe a UWOLer will win it next! You're a talented and competitive lot, I hope to see one of your smiling faces on their website soon!

Check it out...

Wow Meryem, that's awesome!

With so many of us shooting HD now, critical focus is a big problem. Just a little off and it really shows in HD.

I'd like to give a shout out to DSC Labs for coming on board as a sponsor. UWOL will only get bigger and better. I've seen the level of films increase dramtically since UWOL#1

Thank you Meryem for doing a great job.
I agree with you Kevin, it's getting better and better, both forum and films.
By the way, this week Per Johan came on a visit up to my home place.
Very nice weather and a lot of great shots from Runde and Kvamsoy.
