Last show when we discussed not doing video a ton of you guys wrote in and said don’t get rid of video. To clear that discussion up, I was never planning on doing away with the video, just cutting down on how many angles.

The goal is to be able to live edit the show so pretty much right after we finish recording it could be good to go out into the world. We are testing a bunch of different solutions and we will see what we end up with soon.

Thank you guys for your continued support as the show evolves and takes on a new life. In this episode we discuss all the Real World Reviews we were able to film, LEXAR being shut down, the Sony a9 and much more.

I’m Tired Of “FAKE” Photo News Like This Being Spread: RAWtalk 222

June 19, 2017

The "FAKE" Photo News story i'm talking about starts at 42:30 of this episode.

I saw the story, I was sent the story by numerous people and I chose not to comment on it. It was so clearly fake that I didn't want to discuss it. But, since so many people wanted to hear my take and Stephen brought it up, I discussed it.

RAWtalk is evolving, the channel is evolving and we need to make a few decisions in regards to the future of RAWtalk. We love the discussions but I can not see spending the man power to edit and make each episode in it's current form.
