In addition to discussing their favorite travel photo gear, the podcast team digs into the top stories from the last week, including Nikon’s service advisory to fix the problems with the Z8’s strap lugs, the fact that camera sales are bouncing back, the Olympus TG-6 appears to be on its way out (leaving room for a replacement, perhaps?), and TTArtisan has released a very affordable lens that embraces the soap bubble bokeh effect.
