About Author

Don Komarechka is the host of Photo Geek Weekly and Inside the Lens. From auroras to pollen, insects to infrared, much of Don’s photographic adventures reveal a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes has been a common thread in Don’s career as a professional photographer.


  1. You stated Canon Rumors says the EOS R5 with have 8K 30fps Raw. That’s is not true. “Raw” was removed from the post 2 weeks ago, the day after the original posting. The following correction is right there with the listed specs

    *Update* I have removed the “RAW” part of the 8K @ 30p video specifications, I thought I had done that yesterday. The source that confirmed some of this stuff is unsure of what sort of 8K the camera has.

  2. Hi Don.

    I had a publishing company that did very well. It was also based on ad driven existence. When I see the photography magazines of today there is almost no content. Most articles are all advertising driven. As long as I can remember every talk show is how you flog everything. It then makes any articles in print a non event. We see how every kind of fill in is now on You Tube. For me there is only one magazine I will buy as it is made to inspire me and not blast the hell out of me with the same content over and over again. There is also a sad thing about the printing industry. The cost of bricks and mortar has sky rocketed. I have seen a huge printer miss a job by one or two cents per job. When our dollar goes up all the places in the States move the work to China. Now China has invested money we can’t compete with to be the largest printers in the world. Our pod cast is so right on point. Business is business is a whole different world than pushing a shutter button. Cheers
