FilmLoop: A New Photocasting Network - Sampler from Ultimate Florida Challenge 2006

I have just discovered FilmLoop through the Guy Kawasaki blog. It looks like an interesting tool.

FilmLoop is a free photocasting network: "Instead of emailing photos, or sending people to a web page, show photos in a "Loop" on your desktop. Share your Loop with your friends - they can see your Loop on their desktop too. And, they can add their photos to your Loop if you want".

Of course, nothing is really free. If you download the free FilmLoop player to prepare presentation or see larger pictures and comments you will also see advertisements.

I have just loaded some thumbnails from my recent paddling during WaterTribe Ultimate Florida Challenge into the Loop displayed below just to see how it works. These are just thumbnails without larger versions or any additional information at this moment. You can check other film loops to see their full capabilities. The thumbnails in the loop can be linked to web pages. It works nicely for a presentation of e-bay auctions.

Review by PC Magazine:
Bottom Line: FilmLoop's ticker-like interface is wonderfully addictive. Give it a try, and you may not give it up.
Pros: Quick and easy way to browse, share, and find photos. And it's free.
Cons: Advertising and other marketing content.

I may be using FilmLoop for some of my photo projects, though, I have my own web hosting. I believe that FilmLoop is worth further exploring as a tool to share paddling pictures, stories and related information. What do you think?
