The first time I hear the term “Convergence Journalism”, I was confused but after the 10th time….well you do have to hit me over the head!

Adding sound to still images is but one application of this new multimedia expansion. It was explained that the creative art of Photography has expanded into the computer age beyond digital pictures and editing. The audio could be narrative or the ambient sounds when the picture was captured.

We have been asked by many to recommend a solution for field recording that would compliment a Photographer or Photo Journalist and they were pleased to find solutions that used the same compact flash media used in the digital cameras. All three compact flash recorders record in MP3 or Uncompressed WAV and allow the same file transfer procedure as it was images from their camera.
