If you’re looking for a fun time while staying safe, we strongly recommend that you tune in for Pro Camera Reviews. It’s a weekly show where the staff tackles a couple of issues in the Photo World. They mostly pertain to cameras and lenses, but sometimes things get a bit more serious. This is partly because we still feel that we need to be educators and leaders in this space. Additionally, we also need to be responsible. Episodes are done on Zoom and are recorded. They’re then shared on YouTube. We recommend that you subscribe to us on Youtube to keep up.

In This Episode

  • High-Speed Sync in Flash Photography: The staff uses this method pretty often. So we’re going to go over how to do it, when you’d use it, and how it can make your images so much better. In a world where everyone tries to do everything in Photoshop or Lightroom, we’re showing that you can be a photographer first and foremost and an editor later.
  • Ethics in Street Photography: We’re discussing what’s legal vs. what’s ethical when it comes to street photography, especially when documenting protests. This is a boiling issue right now, and we think that it deserves a lot of attention.
  • JPEG or RAW: What’s the benefit of one over the other? We’re going to discuss why you’d shoot RAW and why you’d shoot JPEG. Lots of folks think that there’s no point in ever shooting a JPEG. But you’d be amazingly wrong.

On Sunday, June 14th

  • Is Mirrorless Really Living Up to Its Purpose: A look at whether or not mirrorless cameras are living up to being smaller as a whole. We’ll look at various systems and see whether or not this is true. For those who don’t remember, the original point of mirrorless cameras was to be smaller and lighter than DSLRs. And now that DSLRs are pretty much done with, we’re looking at the progress mirrorless has made.
  • Manual Mode Doesn’t Necessarily Make You a Better Photographer: Modern cameras are so advanced that they can make decisions in a fraction of a second, and that can be the difference between us getting and missing the shot, and at the end of the day, getting the shot is our job as photographers. It’s time to stop thinking that shooting in manual mode makes you a better photographer than those who choose to lean on modes such as shutter and aperture priority. We’ll discuss what these modes do, and how liberating it can be to give up just a little bit of control.
  • The Age of the Superzoom: Recently there have been a few interesting superzoom lenses that have surfaced. Some are real and some are still reported to be real. We’re discussing some of these new lenses and talking about what we want from all the manufacturers.
