Are instant Cameras still worth considering?
Instant cameras… The availability of digital cameras, with the final result right there on the display milliseconds after pressing the shutter, might fog the memories of old times when the idea of seeing an image quickly after it was made had one name only: Polaroid. A Polaroid camera could easily have been a central point of a party, and the memories, usually with added written comments (the kind actually written with a pen and not on some social networks’ statuses), could easily be made into an album right then and there. A few decades forward, and against all odds, the Polaroid name still exists, and is still recognized by a younger generation that might never have shot with one. So, what is so attractive about these cameras? On this episode we talk about the latest developments in instant camera “technologies” and what a number of companies are doing to keep the “instant” alive. Keeping in the topic, Sean also reviews the Impossible Instant Lab (see video below).
And still on reviews (this show is full of them), Sean gives us a long and short version of his take on “Watermark” and “Finding Vivian Meier”.
In between other news, listener questions and our selected from the web, that’s an almost 90 minute episode right here.

Panoramas and 360-degree photos
In this episode we are joined by Ron Pepper to talk about his expertise in panoramic photography, with emphasis in 360-degree images. While panoramic images are frequently made, and even more so with the large advances of software for this specific application, 360-degree images are not so frequent, and still demand attention for their interactivity. This is probably the only type of photography that is mostly reserved for the web and Ron is a skilful artist in achieving quasi-magic results.
