The new GoPro Hero 4 is to be released soon and we discuss some of the new features. Also, Canon may release the next generation 7D and Nikon is rumored to be announcing a new camera.  Chris will be going to Photokino and has promised to return to The Fotobug with all the new goodies released there.

Finally, Chris shows off some items which travel and nature photographers may be interested in checking out.  Items include tripods which fold up to 7 inches and even one that extends around 7 feet high!  For more information, check out www.outdoorphotogear.com

Welcome to podcast number 110!  Fred and Jim test out the laser triggering option on the Nerotrigger and attempt to capture falling jello into Fred's mouth.  Although we had a small problem with the Nerotrigger, we eventually corrected the issue and were able to proceed with our unusual quest!  The Nerotrigger can also trigger on other events and we will be testing additional features in future episodes.

In the photo news, Rohn Engh, author and advisor on stock photography, recently passed away, photographer Kris Boorman discovers a viral image isn't always a good thing, top Hollywood producers commit to purchasing film from Kodak, and there may be a new Canon 7d coming!  Also, we would like you to take our Facebook poll.  In 2012 a black macaque stole a camera from David Slater and now there is a copyright issue over Wikki Commons.  Who owns the copyright, or are the images public domain?  Let us know what you think!

There is still time to get in on the Maine Fall Colors, Moose and Black bear workshop.  Also registration is open for The Black Hills Shootout in South Dakota, but workshops are filling up fast.  We also have openings for the Julian Alps fall colors in Slovenia.  Go to www.outdoorphotoworkshops.com for these and other workshops!

Chris Klapheke will be returning for our next podcast, number 111!
