The Strangest Things We’ve Seen at Press Events | The PetaPixel Podcast

This week, Jaron is out so Chris and Jordan are joined by Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography to reminisce about the worst, weirdest, and downright strangest things they’ve ever seen at trade shows and press events.

Once again, we would like to thank our sponsor, OM SYSTEM, who make The PetaPixel podcast possible. OM SYSTEM is celebrating a significant milestone this Friday—it’s their 2nd anniversary, OM SYSTEM Day. OM SYSTEM wants to involve the community in their celebration, so, from now until November 13th, they’re inviting you to share what nature means to you with a chance to win an OM-5 kit, an incredible piece of photography gear, and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure: a five-day Lindblad Expedition for two to Iceland on the National Geographic Explorer.
To participate and get more details, head over to Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with nature on a deeper level and potentially win some amazing prizes. Share your thoughts, share your passion, and let OM SYSTEM celebrate nature with you.

Chris Niccolls, Jordan Drake, and guest Ted Forbes discuss some of their favorite memories from events like NAB, CES, and press events held by various camera companies and share some of the most bizarre things they’ve seen there. But before they regale you with those stories, the trio discuss Apple’s new M3 processors and the computers you can find them in and how they feel about the winning entry of the world’s largest photo competition being staged. They also talk about TIME magazine’s choice to name two Sony cameras and one Canon camera as three of the best inventions of 2023. All that and more in this week’s podcast!

We use Riverside to record The PetaPixel Podcast in our online recording studio.
