ZSpotNow.com – Fujifilm Z20fd Social Network
Built on the wildly popular Ning social network platform, ZSpotNow is a new social network created by Fujifilm for users of their Z20fd digital camera. The camera in question is a 10-megapixel point and shoot that has a blog mode that allows photos to be reduced and resized for easier uploading to blogs.
The camera also records MPEG4, making it easy to directly upload videos to YouTube. The network is focused around upcoming Fujifilm events in Miami, New York and Los Angeles and bands and DJs of each event will be adding their content to the network in the near future. Users will be able to upload pictures and videos from each of the events directly from their camera.
