This week, Canon is going after grey market sellers in the U.S..
Remember the guy last week who shot his Vegas Vacation witht he Go-Pro facing the wrong way? Well, Zappos (a Las Vegas-based shoe retailer, decided to walk the same path and shoot the video the way it was intended.
After some lens flare in your DSLR images? Have we got the product for you!
Cutting edge technology this week includes Panasonic’s forthcoming ‘Post Focus’ feature,
and Lytro give us ‘Depth Editing’.
For the travelling photographer looking for backup storage options, how about a 1TB SSD which can withstand 1500G’s?
And some downloadable maps might be helpful whilst you’re travelling, too!
Glynn also came across this great app called Solocator (available on both Android and iOS) which will allow you to take photos of land and/or buildings and know exactly which way the camera was facing at the time of capture.
Luminous Landscape is changing to a subscriber model, for the quite reasonable price of $1/month.
And it turns out, Canon tried to buy Sigma, but Sigma weren’t interested.
We chatted about meetup #30 for the Sydney Photographer’s Meetup group,
and one of my Facebook friends, David Taylor, had these wise words to share:
Recommendation to photographers:
Don’t ask people if they like a black & white version or a color version of the same photograph.
Whose vision are you trying to fulfill?
It isn’t your art, if you expect it to be vetted by someone else.
The choices you make – exposure, depth-of-field, lens selection, filter use, “post production”, etc. – these are your creative choices, and they determine how others view & receive your work.
Decide for yourself, share, and let go.
But share YOUR vision.
Don’t cater to someone else’s.
Be an artist.
I received an e-mail through the week from the guys creating Stand-in baby; a lifesize, posable mannequin for helping photographers learn abouth what poses work for newborn and infant photography.
They have a Facebook page and a group, and promise a kickstarter project in December 2015.
Somehow, I don’t think Glynn’s irreverence was the kind of ‘exposure’ they were hoping for!
Adam sent us the story about the guy who built the world’s most powerful flashlight,
the one about the guy who spent half a lifetime trying to capture an image of a kingfisher diving for his supper. Spoiler alert: He got the shot.
And Nikon are planning on increasing the price of their lenses in Europe in 2016.
Oh, and that image we talked about on last week’s episode? Yeah, that’s worth a look. It’s on Adam’s MokoImagery FB page.
And Reg send us a couple of stories as well.
There was this one about the Trey Ratcliff-inspired camera bag from Peak Designs, which managed to rake in over $5 million in crowdsourced funding!
And a video from Peter Hurley on posing head-and-shoulder shots so as to reduce the ‘weight’, with his ‘Hold your sub’ technique.
