    Episode 35: The beginning of the end for DSLRs?

    Episode 35: The beginning of the end for DSLRs?

    It’s the first Photography News podcast of 2022 and we’re back with a bang as we discuss recent developments from Canon that could signal the beginning of the end for DSLRs. Following a recent newspaper interview, in which the company’s CEO suggested that the EOS-1D X MkIII will be its last flagship DSLR, the PN team discuss what that means both on a personal level and a wider scale. Why has it happened? What does it mean for the rest of the range? Will Nikon follow suit? Which DSLR features will we miss? We answer all these questions and more.

    Elsewhere on the podcast, Kingsley believes he’s come up with a new photographic invention, Will has a frustrating trip to the coast, but inadvertently sets a world record and Roger explains which photographic-related gift proved to be a big hit at Christmas.

    Our loyal listeners also feature with some praise for the podcast and copious questions. This time around we round up some software suggestions to add into your workflow, shed light on the dark art of astrophotography and give one listener some project inspiration for 2022.

Will discusses the finer points of selecting and making prints as Christmas presents; Kingsley talks through the risks and rewards of a local portrait project; and Roger plans some reportage-style family photography.
