The camera companies are always in a race to be at the top! Which is innovating the best features? Which is getting the best sales? Who has the best strategy? These are all things we consider when evaluating the companies and making our predictions on who will come out on top. Last year, Chelsea predicted Canon would stay in the number one spot but is now having second thoughts.

A photographer enters a photo in a competition, wins, and then another photographer comes forward and claims they took the shot. This actually happened, and the photographer Clancy Gebler Davies was stripped of her reward. Did she deserve it? Was credit for her photo stolen or did the man who claims he took the photo actually deserve recognition? We go over the details of the story and try to figure out who deserves credit for a photo when collaboration is involved.

Many photographers doubt their work and their talent and question if they have any right to be a photographer at all. DON'T GIVE UP! I'm passing along tips on how to change your mindset to become a better, happier, photographer and it's backed by research done by Dr.Carol Dweck. I read her book, Mindset, and distill her research into tips that can help every photographer become a long-time learner and a lifelong photographer.

The camera industry is changing, the photography industry is changing, and professional photographers are struggling. Tony wonders if it's time to say goodbye to a bygone era and laments a time when photography was booming and the industry was growing. Are the best years behind us? Chelsea argues that photography is more exciting than ever. Everyone has a camera, more people get to share their point of view and write history, and more people than ever can share and enjoy photos. Meanwhile, the camera industry has the coolest tech ever! Animal EYE AUTO FOCUS??? Amazing. We have cameras with 30 frames per second and cameras in our pockets that can do computational photography. Are times a bit tough for pros? For some. But others are utilizing the ubiquity of photos and videos online by expanding their skill into video work, drone work, social media marketing, education, and more.

Chelsea & Tony Northrup discuss the rumors of the new Sony Alpha medium format mirrorless camera, with a BIGGER sensor than the Fujifilm GFX cameras. MORE megapixels, too, with up to 200 megapixels... and it has one more trick: A CURVED SENSOR! We discuss the rumors, whether making a medium format camera in 2022 makes any sense, and what we think Sony might actually release.

Sony recently announced that they were the #1 camera manufacturer, above Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Panasonic in several important segments... But their data tells only part of the story. Tony Northrup digs into WHY this is very important (something photographers using Pentax can totally relate to). He then analyzes several data sources, including BCN, Nikkei, and Google Trends, to determine who is really number one (for both all digital cameras and mirrorless cameras).

Tony digs into why all the most successful camera companies, including Sony, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Pentax, and Fujifilm, are Japanese.

SPONSOR: Go to http://squarespace.com/chelsea & save 10% off your first website or domain with code “chelsea” 

The answer is complex, with 4 major turning points: 1) In the 1940s, WWII's divided occupation of Germany set it back, while the United States' occupation of Japan seems to have helped the Japanese camera companies 2) In the 1950s, the Korean war brought many photojournalists to the US-occupied Japan, and David Douglas Duncan, in particular, had great success with Japanese lenses on their Leica cameras. In the US, Joe Erinreich promoted Nikon heavily. 3) In the 1990s and 2000s, US digital camera companies (such as Kodak and Polaroid) failed to transition to the digital era. 4) In the 2010s, the transition from conventional cameras to smartphones saw non-Japanese camera companies (such as Samsung) exit the market. Japanese camera companies didn't have the freedom to easily exit the industry because of the legal challenges around layoffs.
