Welcome to This Week in Photo
It's time to take that lens cap... OFF!
Fujifilm cameras produce excellent quality images and Fuji has many fans, including Doug. To their great in-camera emulations of classic film stocks, Fujifilm has added the claim that their flagship X-T1 is the fastest autofocusing camera on the market. But does the X-T1 live up to the hype?
Nikon stock hits a 3 year low which prompts restructuring of the company, the Camera Store pits 4 mirror-less bodies against the Nikon D4s in an autofocus test, & a Facebook software engineer posts a step-by-step guide on how to steal grad photos. Plus an interview with photographer Renee Robyn.
This week on TWiP, GoPro goes IPO, 500px Prime rolls out the ability to search for images by gender affinity, and the F.C.C. backs fast lanes for web traffic. Plus an interview with Google’s Brian Matiash.
The OM-D E-M10 is Olympus’ smallest and least-expensive micro four-thirds camera to date. Is it an entry-level MFT body? A good second camera? And how does it stack up to the venerable E-M5?
This week on TWiP, Blurb partners with Amazon, curating automated photography, and Wal-Mart suing a photographer’s widow for copyright violations.
Dan Ablan and Martin Bailey join Frederick to discuss Getty’s Photo.com. And Amazon gets a patent on a common studio photography technique.
Nikon’s latest flagship camera can shoot at an amazing ISO 409,6000. As Frederick says, “It’s so sensitive, it can see the future.” But is that claim hype or reality? And who should spend $6,500 for this camera?
Sara France and Nate “Blunty” Burr join in to discuss big changes over at Google+, and Imagenomic updates its popular Portraiture retouching plug-in to handle video. All this plus Listener Q&A and our Picks of the Week.
This week on TWiP, Leica jumps into the mirror-less pool, Lytro introduces the Ilum, and a photographer pleads guilty to violating the endangered species act. Valérie Jardin hosts this week’s show and is joined by Joseph Linaschke & Syl Arena to discuss these stories and more.
Flickr redesigns its’ mobile app, Google brings Lytro-like functionality to Android phones, and Eyefi introduces a new cloud service. Plus a special interview with David duChemin of Craft & Vision fame.
It is possible that the A7 and A7R, as well as their future successors might enable Sony to break away from the rest of the pack and perhaps someday reach the top of the field.
TWiP is growing! And we’re looking to bring on a few talented interns to help us create the show. No relocation necessary… just a passion for photography!
What’s new in the entry-level DSLR market? The D3300 is Nikon’s latest candidate in this niche. But the real question for most buyers isn’t whether it’s the best DSLR at this level, but whether one might be better off with a comparable mirrorless camera.
DropBox launches Carousel for organizing and sharing your photographs, Canon undercutting photographers by offering discount portrait sessions at their experience store, and Lensbaby turns to Kickstarter to fund a new lens for the iPhone.
Sony’s Mike DesRoches takes a few moments at NAB 2014 to discuss some of the professional video options available for still photographers looking to up their game into pro video.
Sony Product Information Manager Christina Ann joins me from the Sony booth at NAB 2014 for a quick chat about their newest Action Cam the AS100V.
The mastermind behind LearningDSLRVideo.com sits down with me to discuss how he grew his site from a “stay at home Dad” hobby, into a powerful revenue generating content machine.
Lightroom goes mobile, Sony reveals the A7s, and is Canon charging customers to fix known issues with some of their cameras and lenses? Valerie Jardin takes over the hosting duties this week and is joined by Martin Bailey and Jeffrey Totaro to discuss these topics and more.
