    Great show as always Matt. Ir was interesting to see Michael Cali still shooting 6×6 film on his twin reflex Rollie.

  11. GM Miller says:

    The D600 would make a great prize! Talk to Nikon about.:)

  12. Evan Rasmussen says:

    It’s hard to be nostalgic without having an experience to think back upon. I’ll stick to the latest digital wave of photography and think back on it from the future.

  13. John says:

    Another informative show. I have a question/suggestion; does anyone there at Kelby or PT&T use Canon printers? Can you set up a demo of the new printers for one of your shows? It seems that you are all Epson users but I’d love to see what you think of Canon.

  19. Nice show! Nice interview!

    5D Mark III shows its stuff at a high school football game: In a previous episode, Scott mentioned how difficult it is to shoot high school night games, with their crappy, er, less-than-optimal floodlights. For the Homecoming game, I decided to drop some $$$ and rented a Canon 5D Mark III and a 300mm f/4 lens. Set ISO to 25600, aperture to f/4, and was able to get shutter speeds between 1/640 and 1/1000. The 5D Mark III did a phenomenal job. Of course there was noise, but luminance noise only, and at that super-high ISO setting, not bad at all and easily reduced in Lightroom 4. Got some great action shots suitable for the yearbook.

  26. Terry Doyle says:

    You guys rock !!

  27. Michael says:

    Another good show. Keep up the great job!

  28. mariano says:

  30. Ed K says:

    great episode – great tips – thanks

  31. Craig Warren says:

    Great show. I also find film a bit more fun to use and only wish I had the funds to build a nice darkroom with alll necessary equipment. I learned film and processing using a 4×5 box camera loading two sheet cassettes.
    Thanks again
