Photo Geek Weekly Episode 94 - Coveted Apertures

On this episode of Photo Geek Weekly, Don Komarechka is joined by Larry Becker to discuss why people covet F/0.95 and how lenses offering such apertures are becoming more available, infringing on copyrights to complain about copyright infringement, redesigned macro lenses and much more. It’s a great chat with a wonderful bit of banter in the beginning – thanks for listening!

Bonus: Check out the Platyball Kickstarter campaign! This little tripod head looks awesome. I had my hands on one of the prototypes which felt very solid and super easy to use.
