Hello and Welcome,
Alex Zaharov-Reutt's message to members is below together with details of Friday's Digital Photography SIG Meeting:

Tuesday 24 March - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
It's almost time to get on the march to our March Main Meeting where our special guest will be Kevin Greely, the Channel Manager for Parallels Australia and New Zealand. 
Parallels is most famous for its Parallels Desktop software allowing you to run any version of Windows, Linux, DOS or other compatible operating systems in a virtual machine on your Mac. 
Kevin will tell us about Parallels and its products and services. This includes Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac and what it looks like to run Windows and the Mac OS on a Mac at the same time. 
We will also learn about and see the latest Parallels Access 2.5 for iOS and Android. 
This software allows you to control your PC or Mac from your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. It does so with a remarkably cool touch control interface that blows away competitors such as TeamViewer by giving you the precision of a mouse with the simplicity of your fingertip. 
Both are paid products but they are not expensive, and we've asked Parallels to give one of each away for the main meeting raffle, and while they are yet to confirm, I do expect they will be able to generously offer at least one if not both of the demo'd software. 
I also have a range of bits and pieces from press events I've been to that I will bring to add to the mix of giveaway goodies. 
We'll naturally have all of our regular sessions as well and I definitely look forward to seeing you at our March Main Meeting.
See you there! :-)
Friday 27 March - Digital Photography - 9:30am - 12:30pm
At this meeting the group will discuss the merits of taking and processing digital photographs with a RAW image file format. 
The steps that need to be taken to process RAW images into JPEG or TIFF image files will be considered as will the type of photography that can make the best use of the raw image file format. 
There will also be a general discussion of digital photography interesting items at the meeting.
