On this episode of Photo Geek Weekly, Steve Brazill joins Don to discuss the magical “F/0.95”, a possible solution for blown highlights in future sensor designs, how Google and Apple push the envelope and Canon gives in to pressure and provides camera features that should have been there to begin with. All this and more! Thanks as always for listening.
