Episode 14: Vintage Video and Stereo Cameras

We’re back with episode 14 of the Camerosity Podcast.  This week we threw caution into the wind and recorded a show without any idea of what we were going to talk about and letting fate decide for us.  Apparently, fate wanted to talk about vintage video and stereo cameras!

Joined by our first ever European listener, Malcolm Myers, former Camera Barn manager David Goldberg, former TV/News photographer Larry Effler, and returning listeners Miles Libak and Mark Faulkner, we cover a wide variety of topics.

After this episode, we are switching to an episode every other week, so we will be off next week returning the week after that.  We’d love it if you could join us for Episode 15 which we will record on Monday, December 13th, so look for the join link around that time.
