Shutters Inc – episode 273

Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

This week,
Glynn is quitting Shutters Inc. You can blame (or thank) Brian Mundy for that.
Sydney’s The Digital Playground. Looks like no one in the industry has a printer bigger than A3.
The week in Glynn’s iPhone shoots, plus the LED Walk and Pixel Stick shoots,

Canon SX60 (with its incredible 21-1365 zoom!),
Nikon D750,
Panasonic CM1,
Sony QX1,
Sony dog harness… no, we’re NOT kidding,
and RElonch…REdiculous?

Glynn is happy to see Canon had (at the time of recording) 59% of all views on dpreview’s top 10 with only 2 cameras.
Getting up close and personal with a comet (as long as 177 miles is “up close and personal” enough for ya,
we’ve got some creepy gif animations based on images from the Library of Congress,
Adam sent us a link to some images taken with the aid of the Lightblaster,
and although Glynn didn’t want to know about it, you might (if you’re in Sydney) be interested in Dragon Image’s garage sale.

This week,
Bruce is bike shopping,
Mike Hollman awarded Nikon Ambassador for New Zealand,
Brian Houghton’s spectacular portfolio on Flickr and Photoboxgallery (watch out, it’s mostly NSFW!),
Glynn though this particular image would make a great 70’s velvet painting,
MDisc… Bluray on stone,
If you haven’t already grabbed yours, .photography domains are now available. Although if your current site name (like mine) is “photography.com”, then “photography.photography” is going to sound a bit silly/redundant.
500px will be the first site to offer Lytro sharing,
Glynn found that Rokinon offers Tilt Shift lenses,
Jared “FroKnowsPhoto” Polin got kicked out of Six Flags for his “I shoot raw” t-shirt,
Sony’s curved sensor,
the Panasonic FZ1000 with built-in 25-400 (2.8-4.0) zoom with 4k video and 1” sensor,
and Adam Davidson likes this crowdfunded autonomous drone, which will track you whilst you perform your sporting endeavour of choice, and keep you in the middle of the frame of your GoPro footage. Sweet.
