    In episode 36:
    Its been a while.... Steve’s travelled to Hong Kong and Paul’s been jetting off to Leeds.  NAB has also been and gone… lots of new kit… but we’re guessing the big news is RAW, and what that might mean to how we work. Oh, and Paul admits to a big mistake with the Canon C200.
    Is broadcast TV officially dead… and what are we all going to do now?  Far from being depressed, we take a look at what opportunities we might need to embrace.  Maybe computer generated presenters should be worried too!
    We’ve also been reassessing what extrashot should be.  What do you want to discuss in our virtual crew room?  Are endless camera reviews getting a little pointless?  Have a listen and do tell us what you think.
    Hope you enjoy this episode.

    In episode 35:
    We know... it's a little late for the first episode of the new year, but we do hope all of you are having a busy start to 2018!
    The BSC Expo in London has now become our first "must go to" event of every year and 2018 certainly had a great buzz about the place with new camera launches and plenty of desirable gadgets. We talk to Barry Griffin from Canon, get surprised by RAW, and of course, reveal the Alexa LF with Marc Shipman-Mueller from Arri.
    After 90 years, the 2018 Oscars have finally nominated a female cinematographer.  Rachel Morrison could make history, but we wonder why hasn't there been more? 
    With new toys, a new studio and a touch of decorating, we hope you enjoy this packed episode.

    In episode 33:
    Things start a little more seriously on this special Halloween episode…. and as yet another scandal effects the whole entertainment industry, Steve and Paul discuss whether saying nothing makes us all complicit.
    We re-visit an old subject with a few more suggestions of what we should all be called as Paul slams into reverse and changes his mind.
    How many left handed dyslexic vision recordists do you know?  We suspect there might be a few and wonder if it’s an unfair edge!
    We can all argue about which is the best camera to buy…. but can we agree on the 5 worst cameras ever made?  Give us your suggestions for the bottom 5 video.
    With very expensive viewfinders, kissing fish and a live delay… you’ll never get the teeshirt if you don’t listen!
    Enjoy
    Steve & Paul

    In episode 32:
    In this sound recordists special, we finally get to talk with our old friend and mini-golf champion, Richard Eades.  The role of the location sound recordist has gone through enormous changes over recent years.  With the rise of ‘shooting PD’s’ and return of ‘separate sound’, how has the job changed?  Often expected to be a camera assistant or even now a DIT specialist, is this the best way to keep the diary full?  We also discover the easiest way to wind-up your own sound recordist in the middle of a busy day!
    EVA, URSA, Venice, Amsterdam… lots to discuss from this years exciting IBC show, but which camera do we think is going to replace the FS7 as the default choice for Television production managers?
    As Steve returns from cycling in Turkmenistan, and the Monkey has to change his pension arrangements, Paul needs to know what settings will make his F5 look like a 1970’s 8mm home movie camera?
    It really is a packed episode… enjoy.

    In this episode, Steve and Paul discuss the dangers of discussing your next job in public places and then end up wondering where all the public spaces have gone!
    RED have announced they are going to sell a phone while Apple stores start selling everything you need for professional video from RED… coincidence or the beginnings of another shift in our industry?
    As extrashot produce their first video on drone racing, there’s a proposal to register any drone over 250 grams.  Is it a good idea or a total waste of time?
    With monkey news, bear stories, resolution rants, and even tales from the war, this really is a bumper summer episode you shouldn’t miss.
    Enjoy,
    Steve & Paul

Comedy gold for video professionals

Extra Shot is a great listen, not because it has its finger on the pulse of the latest camera gear (although it sort of does), or because it raises topical issues about the video industry (although it’s surprisingly thoughtful at times), but because Steve and Paul are hugely likeable - and frequently extremely funny - hosts.
What non-Brits would make of their self-deprecating and (on the surface at least) somewhat haphazard approach to podcasting is anyone’s guess. But they’re seasoned pros, and their show is a gem.

@sundogme ,

Always worth a listen!

Monthly chat from two experienced TV cameramen in the UK covering cameras, tech developments and current media stories.

Charlie-Locke ,

Fantastic guys! Please don’t stop there...

These two senior chaps are well beyond knowledgeable, yet are keeping up with the industry and all it’s qwerks and twerps!

They seem to bring up all the current, and relevant topics, discuss it to a manageable extent and it’s overall just a very easy listening podcast. Love it, hope it continues for many years to come.

A favourite!
