Welcome to The Fotobug podcast 150.  In recent news, GoPro has announced an partnership with Microsoft and after a less than stellar quarter, GoPro announced layoffs and are dropping 3 models from their entry-level lineup..  Also, KelbyOne has announced layoffs and one very longtime trainer for Kelby has announced he will not longer do video training and won't be attending any future Photoshop World events.  A team of researchers at Rice University are developing a thin, lensless camera called FlatCam, which replaces the traditional lens with a grid-like coded mask essentially made of multiple pinholes.  Chinese company Techart has produced an adapter that works with the AF system of Sony's A7 II and A7R II cameras to create an autofocus effect for Leica M mount lenses.  For more details and more news, watch the podcast!

Luka Esenko joins us from Slovenia to discuss his new app for smartphones - the Snapp App.  The Snapp App has been created for photographers traveling to new or known locations and will contain complete guides to those locations.  The app will include directions on where to go, when to be there and even sample images including camera settings.  The guides are written by knowledgeable photographers who know the areas they are writing about.  The Snapp App will be free, just buy the guides for the locations you need.  For information on when the app will be available, follow The Fotobug on our Facebook page.  The app will initially be released for IOS devices and shortly for Android.  If you are a photographer who likes to travel, you will want to tune in to check out this new app!

Mark the dates April 8, 9 and 10 for the upcoming Tampa Bay Photo Shootout!  More information can be found at www.thephotoshootout.com.  You won't want to miss this 2nd annual event!  Lots of great workshop leaders and it is going to be a great weekend to learn new techniques and to polish up your skills.
