In our recent review of the HiTi P110S PocketStudio (November, 2010, issue) the reviewer stated that in order to keep shooting while printing the user needed to disconnect the cable between the camera and the printer. In fact, the unit has a dedicated USB switch that can be turned off and that allows you to continue shooting while the unit is printing.

In the December, 2010, issue (page 104), we reviewed Ellen Boughn’s book Microstock Money Shots and inadvertently wrote that she was a “professional photographer.” Actually, she’s a consultant to photographers and a long-time stock industry executive.
