  1. A bit surprised that youf thoughts on Olympus turn to towards how this little Japanese private equity fund is going to turn around a camera company that has been loosing money for years. Never mind that the buyer doesn’t know anything about cameras. That the economy is having a rough time everywhere, especially for camera companies. That the buyer does have expertise in selling off the parts of the companies it buys. Guess all these details point to new opportunity for Olympus products to finally get unleashed?!!! Wake up!

    Do you know that the download function for episodes 112 and 113 is broken. I delivers a 143 KB file in both Firefox and Edge browsers.

    …. help

    • Hey Terry! Working on a fix. I updated some backend software but the problem still persists, so I’ve put in a support ticket with Castos (the hosting / bandwidth provider for the podcast files). In the meantime, however, here’s a quick fix. The last ten episodes can be found as MP3 files in this folder for your downloading enjoyment: http://photogeekweekly.com/episodes/
