What About It
Yeah, what about it? I’m not the biggest tech guy or anything, but TWiT shows are typically about as good as serious tech-dedicated shows get, just in terms of polish and content and also being at least kind of entertaining. They’re usually not good enough to get into my rotation or anything, but I can recognize quality when I hear it. This one is dull, even by TWiT standards. It’s photographers talking about cameras, occasionally giving helpful hints and spending an inordinate amount of time (usually) on the story of how they got into photography in the first place. This show is of little interest to me and maybe not even of much interest to the people it’s interesting to.
You have a FASCINATING story about discovering cameras at the age of forty.
Avoid Like the Plague If
Your camera is your phone and your phone is your camera.
Best Entry Point
None, really, but whatever.
