Shutters Inc – episode 282

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

This week, the final episode for 2014!
Last week, Glynn told us about the camera with a 1/2,000,000th of a second shutter speed. Pfft. That’s lame! How does a ONE TRILLIONTH of a second grab ya?
I came across this gorgeous 365 day personal selfie project,
Peter Lik now holds 4 of the top 20 spots for Most Expensive Photograph Ever Sold, some are suggesting that this was a publicity stunt, and if it was, it sure worked! Seems everyone is talking about it on social media.
Adam brought our attention to the Relio light cubes. Not flashes, but battery-powered cubes of light for still or video work. The odd part? Available in colour temps of 3000K, 3500K and 4500K. No daylight white balance (5600K)? Say wha?
Why it’s ok to hate your old photos,
Steve Peters pointed me toward this video of one photographer’s story about why he left Nikon for Sony,
Rob Coates weighed in on the validity and authenticity of both ‘minify’ and ‘functionality’,
Carl showed us a video about how to move your Lightroom catalogues between drives without breaking relative links,
Glynn told us about the Descendants Project, in which Drew Gardner has found living descendants of famous people, and recreated their forefathers’ portraits; costumes, lighting and all!
Bambi Cantrell talking about light,
Leica M9 corrosion; be thankful if this doesn’t affect you, as it’s a 3 month wait for repair, and the replacement is likely to suffer the same fate! Yikes!
Chinatown New York in the 1980’s,
Awkward Family Christmas photos (1) (2) (3),
that ludicrous story about the lawyer who tried to extort a photographer for supposedly doing a crap job of the wedding photos, but ended up getting slapped hard for his efforts,
Steve McCurry talking about his approach to his photojournalistic assignments,
and of course, Dave Frog Clark’s picture to commemorate Glynn’s half-century!

Glynn's 50th

David Marland told us about some historical black and white images which have been masterfully (don’t tell Glynn I said that!) coloured,
the latest on the Pass The Camera project,
Carl pointed us to this video interview with the founder of Mylio,
Glynn found an Advent Calendar with a difference,
the top 5 Christmas Gifts you don’t want,
the Vela high speed flash project on Kickstarter,
some silly test photos taken with the Canon 7D mkII,
Iconic film shots needed their own little bit of “photoshopping”,

10 famous landmarks you’re not allowed to shoot for commercial use,
awesome product photography with an iphone,

rumours are surfacing of 2 DSLR’s on the way from Canon, sporting no less than 50MP sensors,
pricing your work on the intangibles, rather than the tangibles,
Darren Oster told us about the new Samsung NX1,

Shutters Inc – episode 279

Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 17:04

This week, the drama of Glynn’s iOS woes,
This year, Carlos Naval proved that you don’t NEED the latest and greatest DSLR to take stunning images,
there are rumours of a new sensor design coming from Sony,

Melbourne hyperlapse,
Mark Loader wrote to tell us about an awesome book called “Road To Seeing“.
Some great images shot low to the ground,

where your gear gets stolen most often,
the Help Portrait project,
the image that gave Glynn goose bumps,
the ultimate selfie rig,
Kingston has just released 256GB memory cards,
with Glynn’s typically exhaustive research, I can only assume that the Canon/Nikon compatible flash he was referring to is this new offering from Nissin, but I could be wrong.
And we’re looking for one more guinea pig to join the pass-the-camera project. If YOU haven’t joined up yet, then get your butt over here and get on board!

Unfortunately, at the time we were meant to record this week, Glynn was still in Apple-hell.
Alas, another week goes by.

Sorry all, but Glynn is still trying to get his Mac back up and running, so we’ve not been able to record. Hopefully he’ll be re-teched by next week.

This week,
Glynn is quitting Shutters Inc. You can blame (or thank) Brian Mundy for that.

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.
