Has it really been 8 months? Surely not?
Just when you thought we had disappeared for good, we’re back. Job changes, house moves and family crises are (hopefully) behind us all so we’re hoping that we can now get back to something like a regular podcasting schedule. Keep your fingers crossed and keep watching!
In this episode, Antonio is joined by Dave and Sean for a general natter about some recent news topics and to answer listener questions.
During news discussion, Dave enthuses about the new Nikon D810, a camera that finally hits the function and price sweet spots for D700 owners looking to upgrade, we consider the value of photography in the light of a couple of news stories from ImageBrief and South African photographer Greg Lumley, consider Flickr’s newly-announced photo licensing marketplace and get confused about how Sony will manufacture their new curved sensor.
On a more light-hearted note, we take a quick look at some imaginative on-the-job engagement photos from a Chinese SWAT officer and note that DXO Film Pack 3 software is available free until August 15th.
Enjoy the show…
