Show Notes – Ep 50 Recorded March 20th 2015 (Happy Spring)

SPONSORS

Question of the week: for the next year you can ONLY shoot at two focal lengths – what would you choose?

 

Week in review AKA in case you missed it-

Correction from prior week:
Lightroom should be fine on 4GB of ram so even finer on 8GB. Technically with 8GB you can run lightroom and tell it to edit in photoshop while keeping both running

David S – ..after the ‘fusion’ discussion (extracting photos from an 8K stream), you talked about algorithms that can discern beautiful photographs … so it appears by the time 8K arrives, we’ll have software to find the best frames.

Ancaster RFD – While I may check a light meter reading, the EV movement in my viewfinder, and histogram, I have also used the wifi in my 6D to preview the first few images on my iPad. It will even be nicer when the larger iPad pro comes out. It’s like having a small monitor for off location shoots not much unlike when photogs conduct classes and have a direct feed to a large monitor after every shot, except it’s easily mobile. Another tool I enjoy in the field.

Dennis Ogden- A Samsung Nx1000 allowed wifi transfers to computer android as does the NX2000 which as a touch screen 20 mpix . If you really need to down load via wifi I can understand that,…. you will have your reasons… but for now NX1000 and nx2000 are going so cheaply ( under 60 $ on evil bay)
why not transfer your card to one of those and drain its battery. This way it cheaper than some of those wifi cards and is proven tech . Just an idea . Pop the samsung body back into your bag or pocket while it does its stuff put a new card in the user camera and your good to go again.

  1. I agree with Christina – I will NEVER revert to video over single or even burst shots, in fact thats one thing that annoys me to heck atm about everyone wanting 4k vid etc – I dont care about that, as long a I can take ok vid like I can atm on my 70d (and have only to date taken 3vids in 8mths) I want a great still camera. Its a shame though this is the direction the makers are taking 🙂 I will be one of the old guys who didnt move forward like the old guys still doing film lol.
