Chris is finally back from the Himalayan Workshop, a trek that turned into more of an adventure than planned.
Today Chris covers technical, analog and creative topics: Ben wants to know why cameras still use mechanical shutters, Jim has a question about how to get started with scanning pictures and Maurice wants to learn about group shots.
Chris sends in his first episode from the 2011 Himalayan Workshop. He and Monika talk about gear, about alternatives and about about how to get the temperature of developer chemistry right at 18,000 feet elevation.
Chris talks about the Everest Trek experience, on how to manage without electricity for 10 days, on shooting video with the 5DMk2 and the Kodak zi8, and handling 150GB of image storage while hiking at almost 18,000ft elevation.
