Before we discuss / swoon over the work of Vivian Maier, we tackle some gear news!
Mmmm … Fresh Gear … Again
Ahh, the gear race heats up once again! Canon is nowhere to be found, but Nikon and Sony are making sure we are keeping their names fresh on our minds. With the release of the full frame mirrorless systems from Sony and these crazy rumours and delicious teasers from Nikon, as part of their ‘Pure Photography’ series, it remains an interesting time in the world of all things camera gear. Not gonna lie — those Nikon video teasers (1, 2 and the latest) are intriguing and actually sound pretty sexy, so I’m definitely waiting to see what comes down the pipe. After bashing the NEX systems last show, of course Sony proves me wrong with the release of the good looking a7R and a7, 36MP and 24MP, respectively. Check out the excellent hands on review from Steve Huff!
Find of the Century
I’m sure our Shutter Time friend / partner-in-crime, Scott Hutchison, might say this is an understatement, but regardless we’re thrilled he shared the wealth with Mac and we got to check out Vivian Maier’s work. Mac is very fussy when it comes to photography books, so we know this book is a must read! A jaw dropping and off the charts amazing story + upcoming documentary, Finding Vivian Maier, add a unique mystery and intrigue to her incredible body of work. We discuss her work, the film and what her work means to photography today. Please have a listen and we hope you take the time to check out her story; it’s most definitely worth your time.
