Photo Geek Weekly Episode 2: Panasonic G9 and Pixel Shift, Computational Photography


Today’s topics include the launch of the Panasonic G9 camera and one feature in particular that we NEED to talk about on this podcast (pixel shift technology), advancements in artificial intelligence for image-making purposes and the shape of things to come, and finally a strange new camera from Olympus you’ll never own, but might save your life.


NOTE: Google Hangouts provided us with a lovely audio sync issue about half-way through. It’s annoying and I apologize. Will have this sorted out in future episodes!
