SonyGear4LHutton ,

Love this podcast

I have been listening to Sharky for years. I can’t seem to get enough of his wit, knowledge and style. This show offers in-depth insight into the industry as well different perspectives on photography. Sharky knows his stuff!

Uninformed Rants

Show is more (uninformed) opinion than fact. It keeps getting worse. I unsubscribed.

Eric Photographer ,

Some cheese with your whine...

kinda some good info in there but this sounds like your whiny friend that has a problem with everything. If you want it done your way, why don’t you go make your own camera and lens company… Not to mention the 15 minutes of trash up front. If you love whiny people, you will love this podcast, not for me.
