Podcast: Latest from Canon and the 5D Mark IV Sweepstakes


If you are a regular listener to the B&H Photography Podcast, you’ve probably heard us talk a lot recently about our milestone 100th episode and a camera sweepstakes that we were eventually going to announce. Well, that day is here, and if you follow this link, you will be directed to the page that describes the contest and the methods of entry. No purchase is necessary, and entering on Twitter or Facebook is quite easy.

As the episode title should indicate, the sweepstake’s grand prize is a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera, but that prize also includes a 50mm f/1.8 lens—and there is a second prize: the Canon EOS 80D DSLR with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. Each of these items was supplied to us by our friends at Canon USA and, with that in mind, we invited Canon Product Specialist Rudy Winston to our studio to discuss the gear Canon has announced over the past year. We also talk about the two “prize” cameras offered in our sweepstakes and we take some time to ask Winston his thoughts on what changes we can expect to see in cameras and lenses in the future. We talk about ISO range, image processors, memory card formats, lens technology, connectivity, and the fate of the point-and-shoot. More than just a promotion for our sweepstakes, this episode is an informative chat on the state of the camera gear industry.

With much gratitude to our listeners—both newbies and long-timers—we present this sweepstakes, so stay tuned to the end of the show when we will explain how to enter. In the meantime, enjoy the conversation, tell your friends about the sweepstakes, SUBSCRIBE, and thank you so much for tuning in.
