On today’s show, Michael gave me a quiz about what consumers want in their next digital cameras. How do I do? You'll have to listen to find out, but the real fun will come if you play along yourself. Join in!
Here’s the article on DPReview that Michael quotes in the show.
Are you going to be in NY on August 21, 2008? Come see me! Please! I'm lonely!
Listener Matthew sent us this link to gCaptain’s account of the Golden Shellback Water Resistant Coating. Is this for real? What do you think?
If you have a DSLR and tickets to the Beijing Olympics, the Chinese government has decided that you can’t have it all. Click here to read my thoughts on China barring “professional cameras” from the games.
You might, however, be able to bring a camera that follows the new Micro 4/3 standard. These smaller and lighter cameras will have interchangeable lenses like a DSLR, but without the bulk and, presumably, the expense. Unfortunately, they don’t focus through the lens and they don't exist yet. Read Dave Etchells on why the Micro 4/3 system “is arguably the most significant announcement in the camera market this year."
If you’re in the market for some high-end plugins for Photoshop (and Apple’s Aperture), there are some new ones to lust over consider. Create beautiful black and whites with Nik’s Silver Efex Pro and achieve the bokeh of a $3,000 lens with onOne software’s FocalPoint 1.
