Welcome to episode 35 of The Circle of Confusion, the professional photography podcast.
This week, we battle Ireland’s feeble smallband network which kept dropping Roger from the podcast Skype call while Neil almost didn’t turn up at all.
We talk about the long-rumoured Canon 3D – a rumour with the staying power of weeds. Neil fans the rumour flames.
Roger talks about the pro business in Ireland today. It’s miserable. Peter and Neil talk about selling landscape photography.
To hear episode 35 hit the play button below. You can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes. We’d love it if you did.
The 3D specs, if anyway real, include 4K video, the standard of the future. Canon Watch has the specs here: Canon 3D.
Tom Lowe recently released his Timescapes video project and says it is the first 4K project released to the public.
We want a new Mac Pro
For a while rumour had it that the Mac Pro desk top line was dead. Apple allegedly was dropping its pro product lines. Final Cut X is a case in point.
A Facebook campaign has been launched to petition to convince Apple to continue the line: We want a new Mac Pro on Facebook.
There is more about a new Mac Pro here: Mac Pro at the WWDC.
By the way, if Apple does produce a new Mac Pro and you upgrade, here’s an idea for what you could do with your old one: iMotorbike.
Peter’s Kickstarter project
Peter is publishing his first book and is crowd sourcing the funding. You can find out more here: Peter’s Book.
Competition one last time
We’d like to thank everyone who participated.
The winner is James Morrisson, who will be receiving the bag as soon as Roger finds time to get to a post office.
We’d like to thank Vanguard for its generosity in donating this prize.
FREE SEGMENT FROM DYNAMIC RANGE EPISODE 2
