Is Lens Breathing Being BLOWN Out of Proportion? | The PetaPixel Podcast

Hey welcome to the PetaPixel podcast! We’ve got some exciting topics to cover today – we’re going to look at SanDisk getting sued by their users, we’ve got some ink cartridge madness, and Kazuto Song from Sigma calling us out over focus breathing. But first, let me introduce us. If you were a character in the movie Speed, which would you be? I’d be Keanu Reeves for sure. And I think you’re a hundred percent Dennis Hopper. I really see Jaren as a Keanu figure – secure at the wheel. And I think I’m kind of the Sandra Bullock who’s just here for the ride. Now, let’s dive into the topics!

Introduction to the Hosts

I’m Jordan Drake, and I’m honored to be based off Dennis Hopper. I’m Chris Nichols, and I’m Jaren Schneider. Let’s start!

Jordan’s Experience with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm F2.0 Lens

I had forgotten about this lens until they mentioned it in the ad. It took me back to when we got our very first cinema camera back in the Camera Store TV days. It was the primary lens I used for months, and I have some memorable images using it. If you’re only listening to this podcast, please watch the YouTube version to see these pictures.

Crazy Hair Choices

Chris and Jordan’s Questionable Hair Choices

We all have had questionable hair choices at some point in our lives. Jordan’s haircut was unique during his time using the M.Zuiko lens, and Chris also had his own unique style. But we’ve all learned from our mistakes!

The Ink Cartridge Controversy

Lee Morris from Fstoppers recently criticized Canon over their printer ink cartridges. He found that inside the PG-275 XL Fine Cartridge Black, there was essentially no liquid ink, just a dry sponge. This brought to light the issue of printer ink cartridges and their contents. Canon may feel targeted, but any company making similar cartridges likely faces scrutiny. This controversy has grown exponentially over the last week.
