On this episode of Photo Geek Weekly, I am joined by none other than Brian Matiash to dig into some geeky photo stories, starting with the state of industry sales and how camera manufacturers are adapting. We carry on with 108MP smartphone images, celebrities/public figures disregarding copyright, and all the way back to World War II for a look at how recon planes were able to take photos at night: flash bombs. A fun episode, thanks for listening!

Picks of the Week:
Don: Platypod Max, which I like to use as a sort of “base of operations” to attach a bunch of stuff to either in studio or in the field.
Brian: Gnarbox, a really cool tool to backup and transfer your images in the field.
