TWiP #259 – A Wider Aperture


Hosts: Frederick Van Johnson, Derrick Story, Dan Ablan, Nicole Young

Episode Overview

Apple releases new hardware and updates to Aperture at WWDC, Canon rolls out two new STM lenses, and Leica makes a $50,000 Limited Edition camera. We also dig into the topic of whether it’s better to specialize or generalize in photography.

Once again we’ve reverted back to recording the show using Skype due to some concerns with the audio coming from G+. If we can get the audio out of G+ to match what our audience has become accustomed to, we will go back.

This week:

  • Aperture gets a significant update (6:30)
  • Apple adds a retina display to the MacBook Pro (12:30)
  • Canon releases two new STM lenses (33:30)
  • Leica announces a $50,000 Limited Edition Camera (43:30)
  • Is it better to specialize or generalize in your photography? (48:50)

Derrick Story, Dan Ablan, and Nicole Young join Frederick Van Johnson to discuss these topics and more on this week’s episode of TWiP.
