Jan 17, 2015

Welcome to episode 12!  Consider subscribing if you haven’t already.

In this episode:
We talk about Nikon’s quiet factory recall of the D750, which while a wonderful camera (and our pick for DSLR of the Year 2014), has been plagued with a light leak/flare issue.

I read the email I got from Amazon.com regarding the D750 problem and read info from Nikon’s site with a message to wait for a forthcoming announcement at the end of January.

We discuss whether or not Nikon should give everyone a new D750 rather than fix their D750 with issues while others get brand new cameras in the supply chain.

We also talk about how this issue and the oil spot issues with the D600 and D800 have tarnished Nikon’s image and what that means for them in this highly competitive market with increased competition in the mirrorless market.

We talk about my experience shooting the Utah state high school football championship…with the $550 Sony a6000 and how it performed. And how the Sony A7s did shooting action.

In the news:
Nikon announces a 300mm f/4E PF ED VR as well as a 55-200m f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II. We talk about the merits of these lenses.

We discuss Yongnuo entering the lens game with a near clone of the Canon 50mm f/1.8, it’s price and it’s surprising performance.

The 6th episode in a 10 day podcasting marathon!  Subscribe.

In this episode, John from Oklahoma writes in with this question:
“I’m considering giving up my career and going full-time with my photography, but I’m a little bit scared about doing so. What sort of things should I consider before making the jump and going pro?”

We answer his question by giving him solid advice on the things he needs to think about when considering whether or not he should leave his job and do photography full-time. If you’ve been thinking about doing photography as a career, you won’t want to miss this.

We discuss ideas for expanding your photography business and finding clients in a way most people seemingly forget.

We talk about the decline of the portrait studio and the rise of the home studio.

We also take this question from Maggie in Florida:
“I heard it’s very important to be careful when moving your camera in and out of weather conditions such as moving it from a hot, humid environment such as here in Florida into a cold, air conditioned apartment or house. What do I need to know about keeping my camera safe? I heard that mold can grow inside your lenses and I’m a bit concerned about that.”

We answer Maggie’s questions giving her a surefire way to make sure this does not happen!

We also give advice on where to buy used gear and significantly reduce the chances that it has mold in it.
