DCP 59: Is There a Canon 5D Mark III Loose In The Wilds of Kenya?

Dave Dugdale (LearningDSLRVideo.com), planetMitch (planet5D.com), Chris Fenwick (chrisfenwick.com) and I span the four major timezones of the continental United States in Episode 59 of the Digital Convergence Podcast.

planetMitch rounds up the latest Canon 5D Mark III - the fabled successor of the long-in-the-tooth Canon 5D Mark II - rumors in the wild (literally, in Kenya of all places) and weighs in with his analysis of the unidentified Canon camera photographed by Stephen Oachs.

The conversation turns to the recent movie on the democratization of content production by House of Radon called PressPlayPause. Dave Dugdale talks about his learning experience with the Red camera. Chris answers one of our listeners question on how to manage and archive assets in Adobe Premiere that uses a lot of dynamically linked content. The show wraps up with a great list of recommended products and tips.

It was a blast having Dave, Chris, and Mitch join me in this episode of the Digital Convergence Podcast. They all have great resources to aid you in your journey to master our craft.

I want to thank everyone for listening. Keep your questions and comments coming!
