Another GREAT show guys - Congrats!

Any chance anyone knows a link to the pants and vest Rick Sammon was talking about?


cool shows, awsome your regular again.

Just one thing thats a little frustrating is the different volume of the podcast and teh really loud intro to smugmug, sorry if it is meant to be that way.


Scott Sherman

Thanks for the feedback, Paul and Tony.

Rick Sammon liked the Ex Officio line - they don't market their gear as for photographers, but don't be put off. The company is known for lightweight, travel-friendly and climate-controlled apparel. Check out the vests under "outerwear"

Paul, Michael's working on keeping us on level. I'll pass this along.

Paul M.

THANKS for the info Scott - I'll check it out!

I've been working on the audio issue. GarageBand has a feature called "Normalize" which is supposed to make the low audio higher and make it even overall. I just turned it off and exported the show without the Normalization and suddenly it is louder. Hmmm. Very strange.

It still needs to be normalized, however. I am running it through Audacity and see how that compares to all the other versions I have. I am not sure if I can replace the current version, but at the very least we should have this addressed for future shows.

Thanks a lot for bringing this to our attention.



Hi guy's,

Have just downloaded to episode 8 and will listen to it at the earliest opportunity. One question though ... Was the draw for a copy of Photoshop CS4 ever made from the content back in episode 3?

A good resource when considering lenses for Canon, Nikon, Pentax or Sony cameras is Photozone ( The reviews are very complete and unbiased. They may be a little too technical, but at the end I find the answer about how good a lens is or not. It has helped me a lot to decide if the lens I'm considering to buy is worth buying. I like this information better than consumer reviews about how sharp or good in general a lens is. For me, consumer reviews only tell me about mechanical problems or big problems of the lens, but not much about distorsion, vignetting, etc.

Scott & Michael,

While there's no easy way to determine the equivalent of an L lens on Nikon glass by the lens name, you can tell pro series Nikon glass by looking at it. Pro glass on Nikon has a thin gold band around the lens hood end of the lens. (Third party glass for Nikon usually follows the same convention).

Thanks for all your work on putting out this great podcast!



Really enjoy your show and the contests are great. I have tried smugmug for the 2 week trial and I think with the discount I am going to sign up for 1 year. Thanks Pam

Could somone post the name of the book that Mr. Sammons recommended during the podcast that dealt with how the eye is drawn to certain shapes, etc? I know I could re-listen to the podcast, but I'm hoping someone knows it. Thanks for the great shows!

Thought you guys fell off the face of the earth. Thank goodness for Google. I have missed you wit and excellent discussions during my daily commute and wish you many more years of great podcasting!


Haven't had time to catch up on the latest podcasts but wanted to say thanks to you and Smugmug for the cool camera strap. Arrived today. Very impressed that it was shipped all the way to NZ for Free. Thanks again :)


Hi Scott, hi Michael,

i'm glad that you're back on track with podcasting, i missed you very much. It took me a while to figure out that you found a new "home" for your podcasting project.
I informed the readers of my blog in the following little article about the changes and where they can find you now:

Keep up the good work!



My SmugMug strap arrived here in Newcastle, Australia today.

Thanks very much SmugMug! ...


Just a quick note...
Got my Smug Mug Photo strap and I was very very impressed for a Free Product"

Great to hear you guys on the podcast scene again.

Go Sony!


You guys have got to stop getting your guests to recommend stuff before I go broke. BTW, I'm liking my Exoffico vest.


I am so glad you guys are back! No I did not know you were back!
I have a new iphone and somehow I downloaded several digital photography podcast and got you! hahahaha

I am so excited!!
Yes I subscribed...
Yes, I submitted a question back 2008 about the dye sub printer! I wanted Mitsubishi Cp3800. I got it and it paid for itself... The machine was $1900 and I made $2540 in two events!
Thanks Michael and Scott!
