Fotobug - Episode 146 - First Look: Radian 2

December 27th, 2015

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to everyone! This is the last podcast of 2015.  In recent photography news, action camera manufacturer GoPro has officially named its forthcoming camera drone - Karma. If you received a UAV (drone) for a gift or already own one or two, , you must now register with the FAA. Until January 20th, the $5.00 fee will be waived. Since May of 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been beta testing a new smartphone app called B4UFLY which will show where it is safe and where it is not safe to fly your UAV. Adobe has launched version 2.1 of Lightroom for mobile for Apple iOS devices. Chinese lens manufacturer Kipon has announced that next year it will make available a reducing adapter designed to allow medium format lenses to fit on full frame cameras.  Stay tuned for more news on what 2016 will hold!

Jim received the new Radian 2 and The Fotobug guys do a quick review.  Unfortunately, the unit still has some firmware issues which kept it from functioning properly.  Jim has been in touch with Alpine Labs and as soon as the issues have been resolved we will be doing a thorough review of the unit.  For those interested in time lapse photography, the Radian 2 has a lot of potential and we are excited about what it is capable of. 

If you wish to see the new Radian 2, be sure to sign up for the time lapse workshop at the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival in Titusville, FL from January 20-25.  Sign up now at (www.spacecoastbirdingandwildlifefestival.org). There is something for everyone at this event!

Stay tuned for the next podcast in 2016!
