Welcome to The Fotobug podcast number 137! In the news this week. another person in Kentucky shot down a UAV hovering over his backyard and was arrested with criminal mischief and wanton endangerment. Trey Ratcliff's photo walk in Atlanta was interrupted by the Atlanta police and the group was asked to stop taking pictures and to disperse. This happened in Centennial Olympic Park and they were told photography wasn't allowed in the public park! Canon has introduced a new ultra-high-sensitivity camera that features an ISO of over 4,000,000 (million)! Canon has also taken the main DSLR awards for the best products of the year as voted by the prestigious European Imaging and Sound Association. The EOS 7D Mark ll won 'European Prosumer DSLR Camera' while the EOS 5DS/5DS R won the award for 'European Professional DSLR Camera'
Fred and Jim have received several Rogue Lighting products which we will be using and reporting on for the next few weeks. The first item we will be testing is the ExpoDisc 2.0. Jim has used the ExpoDisc in the past and it a recommended filter to quickly set up a correct white balance for most any lighting situation. Simply point the camera at the primary light source with the ExpoDisc, take an image and then use that images to set a custom white balance. Jim wondered if the ExpoDisc could possibly be used to eliminate or reduce the color shift that sometimes occurs with variable ND filters and perform a test during the current podcast.
