Just a reminder to everyone, Thursday September 16th at 6pm is the second Snapshots. We’ll be hosting this one at Me Bar in midtown: 17 W. 32nd St., 14th fl., New York, NY. Just look for me, Chris Gampat. I’m a very friendly dude and will be happy to meet you. You can also shoot me an email at ChrisGampat[at]gmail[dot]com. I may be a little bit late but I will be there. We’re most likely going to grab a corner.

When I got into this industry years ago, one thing really confused me almost as much as how much certain older photographers tend to treat the younger generation of us: photo vests. I’m completely positive that you’ve all seen them: a photographer of a certain distinguishment (or trying to show off without having said distinguishment) wearing their vests that look a lot like safari vests. You know, almost as if they’re going to go out on an African safari at all times without being anywhere near something like a safari. Walking down the streets doing street photography? You’ll see a photo vest. In the studio? Photo vest! Hiking? Yup, A Photo vest!
When Canon introduced their new Mirrorless cameras earlier on this year (The EOS R) one of the stand out features was that the lens mount was so huge. While other manufacturers like Sony have made all things Mirrorless smaller, the late comer to the Mirrorless party seems to have decided that bigger is better. In a recently released interview, Canon engineers seem to be having a sly dig at Sony by saying that lenses with smaller mounts are far less capable than those with larger mounts. Read on after the break to find out more about what the Canon engineers are wafting on about.
