    #110 Coronavirus, Photography, Redactions and Me

    Oh boy... The world has changed a little in the two weeks since our last recording, but thankfully Perry wants to talk about Exakta and Topcon lenses. The elephant that calls itself Covid-19 makes it's presence known and we talk through the different experiences that the we have encountered and how it is affecting our photographic worlds. Not all the bleeping is Johnny swearing. On a more positive note, Simon launches his new range of lens caps so that your more obscure lenses can be protected from scratches and contagion.________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

    #109 Negative Pixl-latr Lab Pro

    It’s finally here: we’ve made the long-awaited Digitization Special! In this episode we are joined by two titans of the digitization world, Hamish Gill of Pixl-latr (and other stuff) and Nate Johnson, the man behind the brilliant Negative Lab Pro plugin for Lightroom. We cover as many bases as possible, going through the pros and cons of different digitization methods, and Hamish throws in a couple of rants for good measure.________ LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

    #107 Two Lenses and a Pimp

    The dust has only just settled from the fallout from last week’s show, as we had a record number of comments made about it in our small but perfectly formed Facebook group. Calm has now been restored with some serial number serendipity and Perry’s new acquisitions, one of which uses similar letters to a lens that Simon loves. Also, how to photograph a pimp whilst maintaining his annonyminity. All in all, plenty of Rodenstock and Schneider-Kreuznach lens action along with the classic lens powerhouse camera, the Agfa ePhoto 780.

    #106 Ride wit Mistry

    Anil Mistry makes a very welcome return to CLP Towers this week and there’s not a Leica or RF lens in sight, much to the relief to those aspiring street photographers that don’t dig rangefinders. Anil presides over a Fuji vs. Sony fight in which three of the four people on the podcast think that Fuji being a camera company automatically means he should buy a Fuji over a Sony. All this nonsense and loads of lens talk, Japanese Helios, the joy of (digital) printing, and an inexplicable decent into hip-hop.
