Shutters Inc – episode 222

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

This week, some e-mail from Richard Annable and Carl Hemmings.
Richard’s first one was regarding sorting through a big shoot.
The guys at Magic Lantern have managed to pull RAW video straight out of a Canon 5Dmk3.
However, it turns out my comments on the podcast were not entirely accurate regarding resolution. They have been able to achieve 2880×1320 (2.5k resolution) pixels.

This week saw the release of Canon’s new EF 200โ€“400mm f/4L IS 1.4X lens.
Richard Ingram chimed in on the issue of war/journalism photographers and where they draw the line between a) capturing the moment, and b) lending a hand.
For Nikon users, digicamcontrol have just released a smartphone app (in iOS and Android flavours) to allow remote shutter release of your Nikon DSLR from your phone.
Where Google used to offer you 10GB of storage for GMail and 5GB for Drive and G+ photos, they now offer a combined 15GB of storage for everything, so you can use the space however you like.
Glynn has been looking into the “orphan images” issues we discussed a couple of weeks ago. Turns out, Canada has been doing this since 1990.
The Big Photo Show in LA was held recently. A staggering 94% of registered attendees actually turned up!
Check out this video of Chris Hadfield on taking photos from the ISS,
and welcome to the mirrrorless party!

Shutters Inc – episode 221

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

This week, Glynn is paying the price for trying to relive his glory days,
he’s also running a competition this month at CPW,
we asked what gear you are lusting after,
which led to a discussion about David Oakley’s latest acquisition, a Sigma 120-300mm/f2.8 lens, which would be on MY list if it was only available in a Sony mount(!),
check out this great series of videos from George Eastman House on the history of photographic development techniques,
Lightroom is coming to an iPad near you, according to Tom Hogarty at Adobe,
the big news of the week was Adobe’s announcement of going subscription-only (no more boxed software),
if you have questions about Creative Cloud, check this out,
different Creative Commons licensing options for photographers,
why you should definitely keep shooting personal projects,
and we’d like to know what technique do you wish you knew (or knew better) in Photoshop?

Shutters Inc – episode 220

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

This week, Glynn enjoyed watching a couple of 5 year olds do a photoshoot,
Rakesh Shah introduced us to the idea of Geo-fencing,
The Sydney Photographer’s Meetup group will be doing Meetup #27 on Saturday 1st June from around 17:30-21:00.
We discuss focus issues at wide apertures,
From the Facebook Q+A, Susan Menis is missing images from her memory card and was looking for assistance,
David Clark wanted advice on flash for small group portraiture (which led Glynn to mention the Pocketbox set from Westcott/Erin Manning),
and Liam Walsh wanted to know how to identify the sweet spot of your lens. Liam, check out Cambridge in Colour… they have some awesome technical writings there which might shine some light on the subject for you… see what I did there? ๐Ÿ™‚
Bruce does an awful job of describing a workflow for Lightroom culling, (update: Where I went wrong was setting the ‘sort order’, when what I should have done was to set the view filter to ‘attribute’ and choose only to view ‘picked’ images),
Glynn pranked us with his Ilford black and white CF cards,
The U.K. Government passed the Instagram Act, which should be a concern to our English listeners,
and we finish the podcast with a minute of silence to honour the announcement this week that Hasselblad are calling it quits for their 503 medium format film camera.
