Podcast 299 : Alternatives to DSLR Cameras (Google+ Hangout)

Having figured out how to record a Google+ Hangout last week, today I held another Hangout, which I was able to successfully record, and although we took a while to really get started, I figured we discussed enough relatively interesting stuff to put this out there.

Thanks to those who joined and made it work!

We discuss:

Camping, while sleeping in a hammock! Also getting around in the great American West
Alternatives to the DSLR, especially for street photography
The iPhone as a “serious” camera
Retro and four-thirds type, mirrorless cameras

Don’t forget to hit the full-screen button Full-Screen Button in the video window to go, erm, full-screen.

Some of the Cameras Mentioned

Nikon 1: http://mbp.ac/nikon1

Sony NEX: http://mbp.ac/sonynex

Olympus E-P2: http://mbp.ac/olympusep2

Panasonic GF1: http://mbp.ac/panasonicgf1

And, if I started doing like 500 times more street photography than I do now, and actually made money from it, I personally would love a Leica M9: http://mbp.ac/leicam9

    Wow. Interesting discussion.

    Wish I had joined, at least as a recent purchaser of an Oly e-p3 as a new mainstay for street photography. Now I’ll have to finally get on google+.

Photographer’s Friend for iOS

Photographers Friend DoF Calc and ND CalcA Depth of Field calculator and a Neutral Density calculator in one app for the introductory price of just $2.99!

Photographer’s Friend was born of Martin’s desire to quickly find Depth of Field ranges and Hyperfocal Distance in the field, and at the same time, calculate multi-filter Neutral Density shutter speeds without changing apps. If you don’t have a timer in your camera or cable release, the ND calculator has one built in, and alerts can be enabled to display even after you’ve close the app!

There is detailed help and links to relevant information right there in the app, and Photographer’s Friend runs on any sized screen iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and works perfectly in the iPad Split Screen mode, making it an invaluable tool for studying or writing about photography on your iPad. It truly is a Photographer’s Friend!
