Episode 16: Eurovision!

We’re back with another episode of the Camerosity Podcast, but unlike other episodes, Episode 16 is our first ever European special in which we record at a different time to be more Europe-friendly, to give people in that region a chance to call in.

Joined by first time callers, Alan Duncan, Peggy Marsh, Dominik Samol, George Griffin, and Warner Grandfield, and returning callers Bill Smith, Skip Williams, Malcolm Myers, and Miles Libak, Paul, Theo and I covered a wide range of topics, from the Purma Special, how to roll your own 127 film, the Berning Robot, why pentaprisms degrade, and a whole discussion on shutter speed dial designs.

As always, the topics we discuss on the Camerosity Podcast are decided entirely upon you, so if you’d like to join us, be sure to look out for our next show announcement for Episode 17, which we will record at our normal time of 7pm CST (UTC -6), 8pm EST (UTC -5) on Monday, January 10th.
