Congratulations to the winners.  I will contact you via Flickr to get your addresses and color preferences for the shipment of your Seagate FreeAgent Go Drives.

Thank You

First off, thanks to all the Photography Bay readers for getting involved in this contest.  We had approximately 400 photos submitted (and tagged properly) for entry into the contest.  Hopefully, we can do it again soon. You can peruse all of the entries (and more) in the Photography Bay Flickr Pool.

Thanks to the judges for lending their time and expertise:

Rich Legg of LeggNet’s Digital Capture

Brian Auer of Epic Edits

Jeff and Lisa (jointly) of Beyond Megapixels

Darren Rowse of Digital Photography School

Please take the time to visit these great photography resources.  I read everything these guys publish and they are all truly top notch sites.  Again, thanks for the help guys.

And finally, thanks to our sponsor, Seagate, for providing the FreeAgent Go Drives as prizes.  So much goes into the digital photography workflow that storage and file management solutions are often overlooked.  Visit Seagate’s website to learn more about the FreeAgent Go Drives and other storage solutions.

Seagate Fall Photo Contest Update

Some great entries are rolling into the Seagate Fall Photo Contest.  See them here in the Photography Bay Flickr Group Pool.

Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Seagate FreeAgent Go Drive by submitting your best “Fall” photo in accordance with the contest rules.  Seagate is giving 3 of these drives away.

You can learn more about the Seagate FreeAgent Go Drives here.  You can also connect with Seagate via their Facebook page and win a number of other prizes in the FreeAgent Inspires Locker Art Design Competition.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please don’t forget to read the rules.  Entrants may only submit one photo to the contest.  I’ve seen a few duplicate submissions and I would hate for anyone to miss out on the contest by doing this.  So long as they are removed by the time the contest closes, you will be ok.  Just don’t forget to remove the duplicate submission and post your single best photo.

Seagate FreeAgent External Drives

Seagate just dropped several new FreeAgent external hard drives on us to help with all the gigabytes terabytes of photos we generate.  From the ultra-compact (it’s crazy-small) 250GB Go drive up to the monster 1.5TB XTreme and 1.5TB Desk drives, you’re sure to find something that serves your needs.  They come packed with all the connections you need too – Firewire 800 (on several), Firewire 400 and USB 2.0.

I’ll be putting some through the paces and will report back on performance later.  For now, here’s a couple more shots of some of the drives and Seagates’ press release with all the models, specs and sizes. [Read more...]
