Sorry one and all.
Just… can’t even… 🙂

Sorry one and all.
We were seriously about five minutes from hitting record, when Glynn received a distressing phone call which changed everything.

Sorry one and all.
For a guy without a job, I sure have been flat out this week.
Back next week.

Hey… this retrenchment thing is hard work, ok? Gimme a break! 🙂
Glynn’s back next week, so we should be all “madness as usual” then!
October 22, 2017
Sorry all. Glynn couldn’t make it, and I had a heap of other stuff to deal with.

I’m up at Dave’s, recording music. Which means I’m NOT at home editing the podcast!
I should be home around midday ADST (the time the podcast usually hits your feed), and I’ll mix it off, do show notes, and upload as soon as I can after that.

Another of our most popular episodes!
Life was more important than recording this week. Sorry one and all. Catch ya next week!

Episode 384 is recorded and mixed, but I’m away from home this weekend.
As such, the podcast will be a little late hitting the feed this week.
I don’t imagine it being more than about 4-6 hours later than usual. Just wanted to give everyone the heads up.

Sorry one and all, got completely sidetracked this week. The episode is recorded and mixed, I just haven’t done the show notes yet. As soon as I get home tonight, I’ll get it out the door.
June 4, 2017
Sorry one and all, but we were unable to record this week either.
Next week, for sure!
April 23, 2017
Sorry all, somebody at the southern end of the podcast forgot on which night we record, and had better things to do! 🙂
Catch ya next week!

If you are on Facebook, you will no doubt have seen that sad news that Glynn’s dad passed away on Friday.
I’m fairly certain I speak for all of us when I say our thoughts are with Glynn and his family right now.
As a consequence, there is no podcast this week.
February 19, 2017
Sorry all. Glynn’s blaming his “trouble and strife” for him not putting in an appearance this week.
I think he’s just slacking on it, though. 🙂

No, not me. The OTHER Bruce.
Glynn’s best mate, Adam… y’know, the guy who travels all over the world to see Springsteen play? Yeah well, he had tickets to see Bruce in Melbourne on Thursday night and his baby sitter cancelled at the last minute.
And that of course, meant that Uncle Glynn had to step up, didn’t it?
And that in turn meant…. no podcast this week.
Catch ya next week…. but only if I DON’T manage to score tickets to the Thursday show in Sydney! Mwahahaha! 🙂

This week, David Marland steps in again.
He’s been eyeing off the forthcoming Canon 5DmkIV. In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s a video of the new features, and here’s dpreview’s summary of the dynamic range capabilities of the new beast.
This led to a discussion about gear lust, a topic thrust back into my radar this week after I saw this status update on Facebook:
“Yesterday I set out to buy the 24-70 2.8 G master. Drove 40 miles one way. Got to the store, held it in my hands and then walked out the door without it. Just couldn’t seem to reason with myself why I needed it. I’m not a pro, I’m just a picture taker. So I went home and put a Sakar 135 2.8 manual lens that I bought 22 years ago for $6 on my A 7 mkII. Took a photo of my wet dog and called it a day.”
– Millie Latimer
Kudos to Millie for not being swayed by gear lust!
Paul from hedgeformac wrote to tell me about a competition that LaCie is running at the moment. You could win a 12BIG NAS tower with 48TB of storage. Go here to be in the running! Thanks for the tip, Paul!
Greg H. commented on last episode’s discussion of drones (UAV’s) and their use or misuse:
“Please stop spreading the misinformation that a drone hit an aircraft. It is really damaging to the industry and it never happened. It turned out to be a plastic bag.
Steve Peters sent us this story about photography schools, and why you shouldn’t.
Adam told us about Snappr,
and David brought us stories on fake mountain climbers,
Yongnuo’s Canon-mount 35mm/f2 at a carazy $95!
The U.S. obsession with taking selfies while driving,
and for his book review, the annually-updated Landscape photographer of the year book.
We also talk about some of his landscape work, which you can find on Flickr.
And we wrap it up with my latest attempt at self-harm…. a potential migration away from Windows and over to the wild frontier that is Linux.
So far, I’m VERY impressed with Darktable, a Linux equivalent to Lightroom.
