February 11, 2014•33 min
Summary: In our continuing discussion of cameras, our focus turns to action video cameras this week. Everyone has probably heard of the GoPro by now. But there is new competition in terms of size and price that's emerging from some familiar brands. We've got this, plus some great listener feedback to share from last week's show. Hosts: Tom Kresic, John Kresic, Mike Kresic Running Time: 33:34 Listener Feedback: Chris told us he ended up getting a Sony NEX-7 that he loves because you can easily pull it out of the bag and quickly get a great picture. Violet and her husband are huge fans of the Canon DSLRs. She has the Rebel t5i and, while it takes great pictures, the lens is extremely noisy when shooting videos. Tom will discuss this common problem during the show. Oh, and we’re totally jealous that you are going to Comic-Con again this year. Congrats on getting tickets!
