Episode 69 »» Woe thy name is Nikon


Oh, Nikon

They’ve been teasing us for weeks with their Pure Photography series of videos, but finally we found out the scoop! Oh, yeah! I’m thinking one co-host prefers this body over the other … hmmm.

Vivian Maier – Self Portraits

Mac really thinks this book is even better than the first one, Vivian Maier – Street Photographer. Knowing Mac’s aversion to self portraits (and photography books), this is saying a lot!

Bits n’ Bites

We would love to hear your thoughts on the new Nikon Dƒ! Is this just to satisfy those retro junkies or do you think we have a solid new body on our hands, especially in the ever increasing mirrorless system world? Have you had a moment to check out Vivian’s work yet? Please let us know what you think of her work and the mysterious woman behind it! You can stay connected with us between shows by checking us out at Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus! Don’t forget you can subscribe for free to our show via iTunes!

More and more news about the new FujiFilm X-E2 camera are coming out… even the price at 989 euro.  The most shocking rumour about Fuji, is that X-Pro2 will never be made. X-Pro1 is going to be the last in it’s line.  It’s a sad day I tell you, but again these are far fetched speculations.  Sony on the other hand has two full frame mirror less cameras in the works.  A7, a 24mp wonder, and A7r a 36mp beast…. Nikon D800 anyone? 🙂  Both these cameras will have existing NEX E-Mount, but the big problem is that the current line up of lenses will not work very well with the full frame configurations.  So expecting new lenses from Sony…


Sid is having issues with Adobe CC…. apparently her serial number from a boxed version of Photoshop is illegal… or something to that effect.  On top of that Adobe gets hacked and Sid goes on a rampage of changing all of her accounts…. talk about wasting somebody’s time.  I think it’s time to send Adobe a bill.

Photofocus, a website run by none other than Scott Bourne, had a guest post about creating bokeh in photoshop.  Oh what a dissapoitment.  Apparently some people are still confused what bokeh is.  So here you go, if you want to waste 8 min of your life: http://photofocus.com/2013/10/05/create-custom-bokeh-in-photoshop/.  I think this can be done by spitting on your lens… easy.

Are DLSRs a Dying Breed?

Well we tried to answer that question, and Mac thinks that with in 5 years they will be mostly extinct.  Mirror mirror on the wall…. hell who needs a mirror!  Very lively discussion on that topic, and we would love to hear your comments.
