Episode 27: Desert Island Cameras

This week on episode 27 Anthony, Paul, Theo and I get our passports ready and board onto a boat for a tropical getaway!  While there, we will be taking a three hour tour to a remote, non-descript island, where us and our friend Gilligan will soak in the sights and take lots of photos in the hope of having some beautiful images when we get back!

Of course, with any trip comes the difficult decision of what gear should we bring?  Is compactness, performance, or ruggedness a deciding factor?  Should you bring in a large format camera to maximize detail on the tropical vistas you aren’t likely to see again, or would a compact folder be a better option so that there’s less for you to lug around?

Joining us this week is Aiden Dean, back from last episode, who travels with us and brings with him three very interesting selections.  Listen in as everyone talks about their “Tropical Island Cameras” and why we selected them!

Every episode, the topics we discuss on the Camerosity Podcast are decided entirely upon you, so if you’d like to join us next time, be sure to look out for our next show announcement for Episode 28, which will be recorded on Monday, June 13th!
