DxO FilmPack 3 for free

Have received a message from dpreview about an offer to get DxO’s FilmPack 3 for free!

DXObanner

This is the previous version of FilmPack – the current one being version 4. But hey – it’s free! Or at least will be until July 4th.

Here’s the message from dpreview. I received it both as an E-mail and alert on dpreview. I’m not sure if the code is personal to myself – and so I’ve obscured most of it.


 

Hello from dpreview!

You’re receiving this message because our friends at DxO have a special offer that they want to extend to our community. For a limited time, DxO is giving dpreview users the opportunity to download its popular film-emulation software FilmPack 3 free of charge, and is offering a $30 discount on the newer FilmPack 4.

To learn more, or take advantage of this offer, go to http://www.dxo.com/dpreview and enter your email address and the unique verification code, below.

DPR-HEJPAY**** [Daf – I’ve obscured the last 4 characters]

Once you’ve done that, you’ll be directed to a page where you can download the software, and DxO will send you an activation code over email. Your email address will only be used to send you the activation code.

This offer is valid through July 4th, 2014.


 

I imagine if you sign in to dpreview then you should get a code too.

Dennis Hopper the Photographer

I like stories I’ve seen in the past of famous people (usually musicians or actors) being keen photographers.

Here’s another I just came across and thought I’d share. I shouldn’t copy their article so here’s a link to it.

New Central London Camera Shop – Park Cameras

Park Cameras London

Ok – so I’ve not had cause to go to central London much, even though I’ve moved office to Farringdon which technically is fairly central. But I mean to shop etc.

Also not seen this on any photography blogs – which I read plenty of.

Anyway – Seems that Park Cameras have opened a new shop in Central London. It’s actually been there since December! Shall have to pay a visit when I’m next in town.
