Chris talks with videographer Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest about his latest tool to gather amazing footage: a quadrocopter that is capable of carrying motion-stabilized cameras and can fly at the high elevation of Mt. Everest Base Camp. In their discussion Chris and Jon touch on everything form the technology and how to get started with flying one of these for far below $1000, the legalities of commercial drone flying and about the potential for controversy that these flying cameras have with some people.

Chris briefly explores a 40-year old film format, the 110 pocket film. He has a few observations on what’s the best time to buy a new camera (hint: not two weeks before an important vacation as you won’t have time to build your muscle memory). In this episode we’ll also take a closer look at two pictures from two of the Iceland 2014 tour members, Don Komarechka has a question on lenticular photography and the Nimslo camera and Tony wants to find out the best way to get pixel-accurate crops of his pictures in Lightroom.

Chris teaches you at least three ways why using a hole instead of a lens to take pictures can really make you a better photographer – and why with the analog taste to it, it is still easy to approach it from the technical side. The Iceland posters are pretty much on their way and Chris will be on the real radio. Tonight.
