Brian Palmer and Christopher Stokes discuss the newly available PocketWizard FlexTT5 RF transceivers (now Nikon compatible). B&H Photo Video claims shipping in 7-14 days from the taping of this show, and is taking orders.  This segues into an overview of TTL vs non-TTL lighting, and what the FlexTT5 or MiniTT1 modules can do for your lighting workflow.  A listener asks why her 6 year old Nikon point-and-shoot camera produces a better picture than her 3 year old Panasonic point-and-shoot. Brian compares two images she emailed us and gives an overview on camera sensor density’s role in the overall quality of the image.

Snappy - the Photography Exposed mascotI’m excited to announce the opening of the Photography Exposed – Interactive Photography Exhibit, at Kohl Gallery in Chestertown, MD. This exhibit uses a unique approach of providing an interactive multimedia experience by way of QR Code (quick response bar codes) in addition to the name of the artist and title.

Guests can use their iPhone, Android phone, latest gen iPod (with camera), or similar device to scan these QR Codes, and immediately pull up text of the artists description and camera settings, voiceover with video describing the making of the photograph, or in some cases, behind the scenes video or even screen casts showing the event where the photo was made, or any post processing that might have been done in Photoshop to achieve the final result.

The exhibit with 50 photos will remain up through February 27, 2011. The exhibit is just outside the Kohl Gallery in the Gibson Performing Arts Building on the beautiful Washington College campus, located at 300 Washington Ave, Chestertown, MD 21620.

After scanning the QR Code, a video describing the process to create the "mini world" images is shown.
