Three Competing Interests

Episode #66 of the Canon Blogger Podcast Series (CBPS) is up and ready for download.  In this weeks’ show:

  • The three competing interests of quality, quickness, and cost.
  • Is grey market gear a worthwhile alternative for decreasing overhead
  • Blog and Podcast notes, including an update on the Think Tank Photo Streetwalker Contest
  • Listener questions, and the Photo Tip of the week, covering dark prints and the DOF preview button.

On the blog front, for those of you who had been suffering through the feed breakdown – I figured out the source of the problems, and was able to reconcile the feed XML file against iTunes.  So, the history of shows is up again back through May of 2008.  As I go through more Archives of both audio and video podcasts more should come back to life as time permits.  If anyone would like to hear a specific subject addressed in future podcasts, please feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments section or via email.

Another little tidbit – the graphic for the “Archives” of all blog posts and for the “About” page has been changed too, so be sure to stop over there and see the new layout!  Lots of fun stuff from over the weekend to share!  The final bit of news is that a fellow NAPP’er will be in town this week and we’ll be getting together for a mini photowalk here in downtown Denver.  So, if anyone is in the area and would like to join us – drop me a note and I’ll get you the details.  Hope everyone else had a fun weekend.  Happy shooting and we’ll see you back here again tomorrow.

    Thanks much for the DOF button tip. I primarily shoot action sports so I’m usually shooting wide open, but when I do need to do something different I always forget about the DOF preview feature. I need to commit that one to memory!! I also appreciated the grey market info. I’ve been tempted by the cost savings, but have always paid extra for the USA version.

    Thanks again for the podcast Jason – just listened in. The DOF tip is useful, though I still prefer taking the shot, using the screen and re-shooting if necessary. Personally I don’t seem to get the full DOF from my DOF button that I expect to see…..personal prefference though. Regarding Grey List Items, in the UK there are a lot of online retailers who sell them, and this pretty much voids the warranty (for Canon at least). You can get very good discounts, so could be worth it on, say a 430EXII but probably not worth the risk on a £2,000 body!

    Thanks again Kevin

    I just found your podcast and already I have used things I have learned. The DOF Button info was great. I have used it occasionally in the past, now I will challenge myself to use it more. Thanks!
