Welcome to podcast #62 and our Black Hills Shootout special. Fred and Jim have returned from South Dakota and feature images from the event and a few of the workshops. Turnout was great this year and Rick Sammon, the keynote speaker, remained for the entire weekend attending several of the workshops. Be sure to plan on joining us again next year!
In the news, Sony and Hasselblad have announced a partnership to produce a newE-mount compact camera, and Sony has invested in Olympus and now owns 10% of the company. Adobe just released Elements 11 for Photoshop and Premiere and you can pick up the pair for $149 and they just released the final versions of Adobe Camera Raw 7.2 and Lightroom 4.2. Finally, Nikon cameras D4 and D800 are the first DSLR video cameras to pass the rigid BBC Test to be approved for European television production.
