Gear Podcast: New Gear from CP+ and WPPI and a Chat with Pepe Castro

What are the latest camera and lens offerings announced at recent trade shows? We’ll let you know, and throw in our two cents regarding their purpose and performance while we’re at it.

In February, the WPPI and CP+ shows were held, the former being the major wedding and portrait photography conference, in Las Vegas. It is attended by hundreds of photographers, and features seminars, networking events, and product exhibitions. CP+ is the annual “camera and photo imaging show,” held in Yokohama, Japan, and is a major platform for the announcement of new gear from the Japanese-based manufacturers. Along with our resident product expert Levi Tenenbaum, we’ll discuss the gear that was announced and offer our opinions—in some cases we even got our hands on the goods and can provide an insight beyond just the specs.

We also incorporate a little promotional moment into this week’s episode and, never wanting to be predictable, we do so in Spanish. In truth, the B&H Event Space is offering a two-day workshop with noted Spanish photographer Pepe Castro and, because this event is a Spanish-language presentation, we follow suit and speak to Castro in Spanish, with help from event organizer Carmen Rojas. Don’t worry if your español is rusty—we’ll give you the gist afterwards. Pepe Castro is in the B&H Event Space on March 27 and 28.

Check out our new landing page, listing all our episodes, and take a minute to leave us a voice message while you are there. It’s a one-click process and we really want to hear your opinion of the show—on a mobile device, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the SpeakPipe feature.
