Number 86

The Value of Photography


If you listened to show number 85, you probably remember that we discussed South African photographer Greg Lumley’s offer to sell his one-off aerial panorama of Cape Town for $35000. After the show was released, Greg contacted us (you can read his response in the comments on the show page) so we invited him to join us for a discussion about his image and, more generally, the value of imagery and photography today.





In the news, we talked about the verdict in the Morel vs AFP case being upheld – that’s US$1.2M.  Still with copyrights, the appeals Court says streamlined copyright registration for collections is legal, and the Wikimedia Foundation is being naughty.

On Kickstarter there was a campaign for SnaPICam, a Raspberry Pi powered Touchscreen Digital Camera complete with interchangeable lenses – as of this writing, the funding was unsuccessful Sad smile

The Research labs at Microsoft have been busy, and they have published some results of adjusted Hyperlapse, and the results are very very interesting.

To finish off the news, we talked about Canon launching Irista, a free dropbox-like cloud storage service for photos.


Enjoy the show…
