My Favorite Photos from Macworld Expo San Francisco 2010

Thanks to LensProToGo, I was able to use the amazing Nikon D3s on our Macworld Expo San Francisco 2010 trip. Here is a video of some of my favorite shots and a little bit of discussion about them.

There are actually two videos. This one is considerably smaller but is a faster download and this one is large enough that you can see some of the detail in the images.

If you'd like to take an even closer look at the photos, check out our Flickr Feed for these "Best of..." shots.
