What's the deal with 8k? Can anyone really tell the difference? How much does it cost to switch to 8k once you factor in computing, storage, and a camera and lens upgrade? When is 8k useful and when will it make zero difference? Tony & I set up a blind poll to see if our viewers could see the difference between 8k, 4k, and HD. We discuss the results and if we think 8k is worth the switch.

Did you know Kodak is STILL a billion-dollar company? This is the most overwhelming camera history video we have made. Kodak's founder, George Eastman, was interesting, brilliant, and strange enough to have an entire podcast dedicated to him. Did you know he was related to Emily Dickinson and the Colgate toothpaste people? Did you know he tried photography exactly once before realizing he wanted to improve the process? Kodak started with dry plates, evolved to offer film (and cameras to sell that film), became a monopoly, invented the digital camera, and then went BANKRUPT! WHY? Was it Kodak's fault? Could things have been different? Tony and I dug through entirely too much information, talked too long, had margaritas, and tried to sum it all up in an hour. There were too many bits of information so here are our Sources and Citations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14UqtdRIJkVTcLX-_NrMOtbMrLId06j5Yt6ghse5yJJk/edit?usp=sharing

Canon's building a new camera (a Canon 5D Mk V?) that attaches both DSLR and mirrorless lenses with NO adapter - the best of both worlds. I think I figured out their design.

The JPEG file format is 30 years old now. A new tech, HEIF (stored in HEIC files and used in HAVC or h.265 video) offers more than 50% better compression AND better image quality, thanks to 10-bit color. Apple adopted HEIF, HEIC, and HEVC in 2017 for the iPhone... and NO OTHER CAMERA COMPANY HAS FOLLOWED. Just by switching file formats, your storage costs could be cut in half. You could buy memory cards that were half the size and half the speed. Your buffer would last longer and clear faster. In this podcast, I'll talk about the JPEG file format and how WE can convince camera companies to adopt this incredibly important new technology.

Nikon is expecting to lose $92 MILLION in 2020 on its camera business. That's bad, but it gets worse - Nikon is planning to reduce R&D, so we can expect the rate of their technical advances to decrease. Nikon is also predicting that their market share will decrease, and the total market size is decreasing, so their revenue will inevitably drop.

We believe Nikon can pull through this, but their current plans might not be the right plans. We believe they should cater to existing DSLR customers rather than trying to push everyone to their mirrorless Z system. We believe the Z system is an area for long-term growth, but producing F-mount products will help raise cash to keep the business running in the short term. Finally, we believe Nikon should INVEST and take an even bigger loss for a couple of years, allowing them to grow their market share instead of cutting it.
