Windows Live team just announced the release of the new Microsoft Camera Codec Pack, that enables the ability to natively render supported RAW photo file formats in Windows 7 (Windows Explorer) and in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011.
"To celebrate the release of the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack, Microsoft is giving away 10 free Nikon/D5000 DSLR cameras! via Widnows Live Photo Contest."
"The contest objective is to submit a photo essay that showcases before and after photos that map to theme of the contest which is "summer fun". You will need to also include a short paragraph explaining how Windows (and Photo Gallery!) has improved your photography. We're giving 10 extra points for contest entries that use the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack that displays the RAW original and then edited photo from Photo Gallery in their submissions!," informs randon LeBlanc over at Windows Experience blog.
