*X-Rite announces ColorChecker Passport
24-patch ColorChecker target, neutral gray target and “creative enhancement” target into a small book-style accessory. Included with ColorChecker Passport is camera calibration software for Mac and Windows.

Frederick: Do you use calibration software?

Steve: I need too. If you put your work out there, you need to calibrate your monitors.

Frederick: For the Mac users who have upgraded to 10.6.1, the OS now has the ability to automatically update the printer drivers.

* Pentax Announces New K-x Entry Level w/HD Video
Leica M9 http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/content_page.asp?cid=7-10043-10254

Lessons from the group: Don’t go out to a paying job or do a shoot that you can’t repeat, with new equipment.

PHOTO ASSIGNMENT & POLL
As a DSLR owner, do you also use a point-and-shoot? Yes, I carry one everywhere: 27%; Yes, but I only use it occasionally: 40%; No, my P&S has only gathered dust since getting my DSLR: 23%; No, I went straight to DSLR and never owned a P&S: 9%

Frederick: I think a missing answer from this poll is the iPhone.

Frederick: Going on a professional shoot and getting paid and showing up with a small camera, you will look like a tourist.

Steve: As time goes on the cameras get smaller and better. It’s the person behind the camera that creates the pictures.

Alex: For me, I’m looking for a good camera that fits in my jeans pocket. It has to shoot HD video.

New Poll: What is your favorite online photo sharing site?

INTERVIEW — Chase Jarvis
A photographer who clients includes Microsoft, Volvo, Reebok, Nike, and REI.

Frederick: Before our interview I sent out a tweet saying I was going to interview you and what questions should I ask. There were a lot of questions but the one theme was to ask what is your favorite app on the iPhone to post process your images?

Chase: I didn’t tell you this before we started recording, but I have an iPhone application. It will come out at the same time as this podcast and the book. The app is called “Best Camera,” and it will allow you to attach multiple filters and share it with the world. As far as other apps are concerned, the Camera Bag app is a good one. Photogene does a great job (like Photoshop for your iPhone). QuadsCamera is really interesting but I’m really focused on my Best Camera app that I developed over a long time. It came from months and months of using other applications and finding out how they didn’t work very well. I didn’t want the full meal-deal, but just want to apply a few filters and share it.

Frederick: Are you going to do anything special with the book and application, like a discount coupon?

Chase: Sure, I’m sure there will be something interesting going on there. It’s fun to share with you guys here. The hope is that this will increase the sharing out there because there is no “round-trip” in any other application. Now you have to use a phone to take a picture. Go into a different application to apply filters and maybe crop it. Then go to Facebook and post the picture. Then go to my fan site on Facebook and post it there too. Then I have to go to Twitter and post it to Twitter. How many different applications to share just one picture? So the idea here (with Best Camera) is you take a picture and just hit share (after you pre-program where you want it to go — Facebook, Twitter, etc.). I want you to check another box in the application to share it with a feed of pictures from around the world. Right now it’s at BestCamera.com. You will be able to go there and see other people’s work. At the end of every day it will have the rolling picture of the day. It’s another way to encourage community and share it with the world. It was a fun project and the goal is really creativity and sharing. I hope that you all find it useful and you will buy the book and application.

Frederick: Thank you for taking to time to talk with use. So what is up next for you?

Chase: Just finished up the Mountain Dew campaign and another secret project. And another book coming out soon.

Frederick: Where can people find you?

Chase: chasejarvis.com/blog, twitter.com/chasejarvis, and “Best Camera is the one’s that’s with you”.

Frederick: You can find the full interview at Twiplog.com and Frederickvan.com

LISTENER QUESTIONS

Q: Listener Doug Randlett writes: I own a D70 and mainly use a18-200. I also own a 18-70 which I rarely use. An SB600 completes the package. I will be traveling to China for the first time in November and I am wondering if there is any equipment I should consider adding. I will also have a small tripod and a monopod.

A: Steve answers: He really has all the equipment he needs to go on the trip to China. But if Doug were to upgrade to one of the 10 to 12 Megapixel cameras he would see an improvement in his pictures. Maybe upgrading the 18-200 lens with a 2.8 VR lens.

Q: Listener Tony Pratt writes: I photographed a whole season of a college lacrosse team and would like to put the best photos together with music in a slideshow dvd that can be played on any dvd player, computers, etc. I am looking for the best software or service to achieve this.

A: Frederick answers: If he’s on a Mac I would suggest using iDVD to build that. If you are not using iLife and you are on a Mac, I would recommend Photomagico. The third thing I would recommend is Animoto. Each one can export a movie to DVD.

Q: Alex answers a question from IRC chat asking if we have used the Pro DSLR app in iTunes. I haven’t used it myself but I have talked to a number of people who have, and the biggest issue is you still have to be tethered to it (iPhone). This DSLR app allows your iPhone/iPod Touch to control your Nikon or Canon cameras over wifi. The camera is connected to a Mac or Windows PC and controlled by software you install on the computer.

PICKS OF THE WEEK

* Alex – NodalNinja R1 — pano head

* Frederick – Visual Poetry – A guide for Making Engaging Digital Photographs. by Chris Orwig (next weeks guest interview)

* Steve -Nikon 50 mm f1.4. These fast lenses are made to be used wide open. Alex recommends any parents who doesn’t have much money, buy a low-end DLSR and a 50 mm 1.4 or 1.8 lens and it will give you much better pictures than from the kit lens.
