This week, Fujifilm announced a new mirrorless camera to improve upon their previous small form-factor body, the X-S10. The new Fujifilm X-S20 offers a 26 megapixel APS-C sensor in a compact body with fast frame rates and AI-based subject detection autofocus. It’s an excellent choice for photographers looking for advanced features in a small form factor.
Nik Collection 6
We’ve been using the Nik Collection suite of plugins for over a decade, and they are our go-to filters for fine-art image processing. We’ll take a look at the new features in the latest release, which we both agree is well worth the $79 upgrade price. Our patrons can tune in to our bonus video this week and get a tour of the new features.
This week, we’re spotlighting Joel Meyerowitz, whose color street photography transformed the way photographers and artists viewed color photography. Check out Joel’s work at his website, joelmeyerowitz.com
Hands-on with the Olympus 100-400mm lens
Rick and Jason both have the Olympus 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 lens. This week, we went out for a quick field test, and we offer our opinions of this lightweight 200-800mm equivalent from Olympus.
This week, Nikon formally announced the long-awaited Z8 interchangeable lens mirrorless camera. On paper, it really looks to be a “mini Z9,” with autofocus and frame rate specs that match that of its big brother. We’ll talk about our thoughts on the Nikon Z8, and discuss whether or not you should buy one (you can pre-order the Nikon Z8 here).
Announcing our new website and blog!
We are excited to announce that we’ve put together a website with premium bonus content for our show supporters. By becoming a patron, you’ll get access to exclusive bonus material including articles, videos, and video podcasts that go beyond what we can easily discuss in our normal audio-only format.

Dealing with High ISO images: AI-based noise reduction software for photography
We’re back this week as Jason has returned from his photo safari to Isla Bastimentos in Panama. Many of Jason’s images were captured at ISOs well above ISO 6400. Today we’ll discuss the latest AI-based tools for noise removal, including Adobe Lightroom, DXO Pure Raw 3, and Topaz Photo AI. All of these tools are excellent, but we use them differently depending on our workflow needs.
