Podcast : New Flagships and the Future of the DSLR


In the past few weeks, Canon and Nikon have announced their latest flagship DSLR cameras, the Nikon D5 and the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II. Our expert guests, Levi Tenenbaum and Shawn Steiner, have had a chance to play with these new models, and join us to report on their findings. In general, we talk upgraded specs and what differentiates these cameras from their predecessors and from each other. We take time to talk about their video capabilities and get into the bigger issues of who will find these cameras appealing, are they worth the upgrade, and what the future may hold for the DSLR form factor. This is a straightforward and informative discussion about the best cameras available today.

Guests: Levi Tenenbaum and Shawn Steiner
