Episode 039 – Zed’s Dead, Baby. Zed’s Dead.

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

You may have heard about a little camera announcement by a small camera company that rhymes with Mikon. In the off chance that you haven’t heard, then all you need to do is listen to this episode. As an added bonus, we’re thrilled to welcome Mike Olbinski back to the show! For those who don’t remember, Mike was our very first guest back on Episode 10. Between Sharky, who is a Nikon shooter, Mike, a Canon shooter, and me, a Sony shooter, you can be sure that there are plenty of opinions being thrown around.

Before you dig in, we want to make sure you take a minute to check out Mike’s amazing work at his website. Be sure to take a few minutes to watch Mike’s video, Pursuit, which just took Second Place at the Festival Internacional de Time Lapse! Congrats, Mike!

Mike: Unfortunately, Mike decided to choose a feature of a smartphone camera app and not an actual product. He’s a rebel.


  1. Love the show. I agree with most of your comments on the Z cameras. They look like decent cameras, but with a few fatal flaws.

    One note for Brian – Tamron does make E-mount lenses: their first for the full frame bodies was the 28-75mm f/2.8 that they released in May/June. Quite a good lens, and very compact.

  2. Dear Brian, dear Sharky,
    I really like your show, but now, I’m really underwhelmed. Not by the Z7, but by this episode. You guys spend an entire show stating the obvious: Only one card slot and too small battery. I agree, I struggle to understand Nikon’s decisions, but why spend that much time lamenting this. Like no one else in the internet pointed these things out. Why not talk about all the other stuff, the mount, the EVF, the adapter, the sensor, whatever.
    I know you guys can do better. You have an opinion on everything, and your show is best, when they don’t match 100%. Why not share your views on other topics than “just one card slot and a small battery”. ‘Cause I kinda have an idea, what your opinion is on that.
    I hope I didn’t sound too harsh, as I really like many of your episodes. Keep up the good work,
