"Amazing S110, Library Cleanup, Ziplocs" - Digital Photography Podcast 405

This week on The Digital Story photography podcast: Organizing your 2013 photo library (and preparing for 2014); Nimbleosity Report - Canon PowerShot S110 (great deal on a super camera); Photo Help Desk: the Ziploc bag trick - All of this and more on today's show with Derrick Story.

Story #1 - Over the course of the year, it's very easy to let your photo library become a bit messy. Now that we're nearing the end of 2013, this is a great time to tidy up your image collection and prepare for the coming year.

Story #2 - The Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Camera is currently available for $219. Check out these features:


  • 12.1MP Resolution 1/1.7" CMOS Sensor
  • 24-120mm UA Lens (f/2.0 at wide angle)
  • 3.0" PureColor Touch Screen LCD Display
  • DIGIC 5 Image Processor, Intelligent IS, High Speed AF
  • Full HD 1080p Video with Stereo Sound
  • ISO 12800, ND filter, and Multi-Aspect Ratio RAW
  • Smart AUTO, Movie Digest and WiFi
  • HDR, electronic level HDMI out, and copyright imprinting
  • Weighs 6.1 ounces and is less than 4" wide

I talk about why I think this is a can't-miss deal for nimble photographers looking for a super compact camera.

Story #3 - It's that time of year to put a Ziploc bag in your camera kit. I explain why in the third segment of the show.
