Welcome to episode 37 of The Circle of Confusion, the professional photography podcast.
This week, it’s the Roger & Neil Show as once again Peter is missing in action somewhere in southwest Ireland.
We talk about the Firmware updates to Nikon D800 cameras and the problem with Nikon transfer software. Canon’s new “mirrorless” camera is due for release in the next 30 days and looks like the vintage AE-1.
Roger gave his trousers away while shooting a wedding. Enough said.
Microsoft go head to head with Apple’s iPad with the launch of the “Surface” tablet device. Then they finish with some interesting fact’s and figures about the photography industry.

Nikon’s Firmware and Software Problems
Nikon have issued a warning about the possibility of Nikon NEF (Raw) files from newer cameras being corrupted by older versions of its software. The problem happens if you’re using old versions (v1.x) of these programs. So I think you better upgrade. And speaking of upgrading, the rumor is that another firmware upgrade is on the way to “fix” the non issue of the green cast on the LCDs… which Nikon say it the right colour??
Canon Mirror-less Camera
Very little is known at the moment, but it looks like it will use the same sensor as G1 X and a new lens mount is possible because the camera will be launched with new lens. Hope they make a connector for all the EF and EF-S lenses.
Roger and his suit… not!
