How to Ruin a 94k Lens and much more: RAWtalk 134

Download this weeks show as an MP3 Right Here.

Let’s start off with the title story from Photo News where a rugby player decided after scoring to take out a sharpie and sign the camera persons lens. If there was a filter on the lens than it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Since there wasn’t, that just might cost someone a lot of money. You can hear the full story at 09:51.

It’s not often I am grossed out by a story but this one really left me scatting my head. Honestly the story and the photo’s in my opinion are so gross that I can’t talk about it anymore. To see the story I am taking about skip to 27:48. Consider yourself warned.

“On Fleek”: RAWtalk 132

Before I jump into this weeks show I want to dedicate it to Allen from Allen’s camera who passed away last night at the store. Allen was there for me at the beginning and was one of the main catalysts to the early success of FroKnowsPhoto.com.

What does “On Fleek” mean? Honestly it’s a made up term that if you look up on YouTube you just might find yourself laughing.

This weeks episode is sponsored by ATOMOS who has been extremely supportive of the site and the show since way early on. If you are looking to pick up a Sony A7s to shoot 4k video you will also need an Atomos Shogun. The great thing is if you purchase both of them (doesn’t have to be at the same time) you will get a $500 rebate. Check out the new Atomos Power Station as well as the Barebones units which are priced to sell!!!!!

During Stephen’s photo news I may or may not have interrupted or broken into song, but you will find out shortly.

Flying solo was back once again with more solid questions along with gear of the week and the Wheel of the FRO.

Thank you guys very much for your continued support and don’t forget to watch or listen to RAWtalk every Monday.

I want to start off and say we filmed this weeks RAWtalk on Thursday afternoon and it wasn’t until Friday that we found out that Allen from Allen’s Camera had passed away. I will be having a special segment dedicated to Allen on the next episode. To read what I wrote about Allen please click here.

Some of you know I ordered two apple watches for a project idea that I have been working on. The plan was to do my project and return the watches within the first 14 days. It turns out that I am really enjoying the watch so I decided to keep one. That left me the Apple Watch Sport to return or keep. I decided to gift it to Stephen for all his hard work over the last two years.

I decided to strap GoPro Hero 4 to my hockey helmet when I played in a charity tournament this weekend. I must say the footage looks fantastic and I am looking forward to cutting it up for everyone to see. Stephen added a clip for you guys to watch during this weeks show.

It’s not every week that I get over 350 Flying Solo questions but this week you guys delivered. I must say there were so many great questions that I chose a few extra to squeeze in as many answers as I could. The truth will be told during this weeks episode.

I want us all to welcome a NEW sponsor this week, Kenko / Tokina http://www.kenkotokinausa.com/tokina/ . I am almost positive you guys all have heard of Tokina and the lenses that they make for stills and video. But they also work with a company named Hoya who makes all different types of filters. Please take a look around their site and see what they offer as they support the show and I support them.

Stephen brought us the photo news this week with stories that range from the strange to the funny and informative. Be sure to check out the full photo news stories and more.
