Tamron’s Pro Learning Center Puts How-To Videos on Your iPOD

November 27, 2006 | By Staff

November 20, 2006, Commack, NY— If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a how-to video must be as good as a book, especially if it compresses the knowledge contained in a 45-minute lecture into a concise, well-focused, viewer-friendly 4-minute format you can download to your iPod or computer and view again and again. That’s the exciting concept behind the incisive, entertaining, and informative new podcasts posted in the Tamron Pro Learning Center at www.tamron.com.  Hosted by leading photographers, each one gives clear step-by-step pointers on shooting everything from surfing to portraits to macro in Central Park. The information is presented in simple, direct language with verbal hints and tips immediately illustrated by concrete visual examples. Watching one of these podcasts on the screen feels more like being at a hands-on photo workshop in the field than sitting in the classroom. And by mixing video footage with outstanding still photographs, each technique becomes crystal clear. It’s easy to hook up with this incredible learning experience—just make sure you’ve got QuickTime on your ‘pod or PC, click on podcasts at the Pro Learning Center and take a few minutes to download the videos.

One of Fujifilm’s main priorities is to nurture the culture of photography, so we took those requests very seriously.”
