KEN ROCKWELL My NEW Best Friend: RAWtalk 241

Welcome to RAWtalk Episode 241! This week we discuss how Sony invited us out to try out the a7 III in Vegas and our time at WPPI. We then jump into the various shoots that Sony had lined up for us including an epic rainfall photoshoot, a Madmen style shoot, dune buggies and our helicopter photo flight to the Hoover Dam! Jared somehow became BFFs with Ken Rockwell during the trip as well. Meanwhile, we discuss photo news this week including Sigma’s new lenses and their new Sony Art lineup, Tiffen’s new gas monopod, Canon’s new M50 that shoots 4K along with their weird but awesome new automatic bounce flash. And finally, we wrap up the news with our a7 III discussion. Gear of the week this week were the ProGrade Digital memory cards that we used all week during the Sony event. We then wrap up the show with another Flying Solo questions & answers segment. Thanks for watching!
