Episode 65 – PhotoMagic Recap & Newly Announced Camera Debate
This week, the guys give a recap of the PhotoMagic 2013 event at Walt Disney World and discuss cameras that were recently announced by Nikon, Olympus, and Sony. After the PhotoMagic talk, this is basically shop talk about the future of the camera industry, with no one being especially keen on the direction of Nikon or Canon.
They start with the Nikon Df. Spoiler alert: they all hate the idea of this concept.
Sony and Olympus are the hot new camera brands, with Sony’s groundbreaking mirrorless full frame cameras, the Sony A7K and A7R being the hot new cameras the about which the guys are really excited. Sony also released another product of interest, the Sony RX10, and a product of suckiness, the QX100.
They also discuss the Olympus OM-D EM-1 (AM-E UM-2 IM-X OM-4), which really has their interest.
Finally, the guys threaten–err, promise–not to record any new episodes until receiving 10 new reviews on iTunes. SO GET TO REVIEWIN’, SLACKERS!

What Do YOU Think?
The future of DLSRs is a hot issue right now, and while none of the guys are ready to leave behind their DSLRs, they all feel the writing is on the wall (to different degrees). What do you think about the future of Canon, Nikon, and DSLRs in general? How do you feel about the new releases by Olympus and Sony…or even the turd of a camera in the Nikon Df?
Add to the conversation–leave a comment below–we might revisit some of this in a future episode, so having some perspective from listeners would be great!
