Description

Doug Kaye and Gordon Laing sit down to discuss some of the newest cameras hitting the market. After Doug has taken the cameras out for a spin, Doug and Frederick sit down for an informal question and answer review about the pro's and con's of each camera.

Customer Reviews

A podcast about the gear should actually know about the gear

I sampled the D810 episode. The overall production quality was okay, but the hosts demonstrated some surprising ignorance about the very product they were reviewing and had supposedly been recently using. e.g. why it offers a split zoom mode in live view, or the differences between SD, CF & XQD cards, or seemingly the presence of crop modes, etc.

That one of the hosts prefaces the review with an assertion that the D800E is only good for landscapes and only for manual focus, and that it “can’t” be used as a go-to, walk-about or everyday camera, is just flabbergasting. There’s further dubious assertions throughout, like that there’s little difference between the D810 and the A7R (like, I don’t know, autofocus performance maybe?).

While everyone’s entitled to their opinions, it certainly makes me question the validity and usefulness of a product review when at least one of the hosts has such an unusual and frankly bizarre bias.

The perfect podcast

Doug and Frederick are great at dissecting all camera aspects, quirks and qualities.
The only problem is the fact I run out of episodes to watch too quickly!

Great Review of the Fuji X30

Uncle Doug and Frederick always excellent camera reviews. I own an X-T1 and have to say this review makes me want to add the X30 to my collection. Thanks guys for making me spend another $600! Really!
