Canon has been the #1 camera manufacturer for decades, and they beat Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and all the others with leading-edge innovation. That seems to have changed in the last few years...but Chelsea has a theory that they're just charging up for the ultimate mirrorless camera. Is it true?

The Great Courses Plus is currently available to watch through a web browser to almost anyone in the world and optimized for the US, UK and Australian market. The Great Courses Plus is currently working to both optimize the product globally and accept credit card payments globally.

Two years ago a company used one of our most well-known photos on the cover of an iPhone case without our permission. This was misleading in a couple of ways; the product seemed to advertise that it could produce the results in our picture (it couldn't) and some people assumed we were endorsing the product. The product was in some of the biggest stores in Australia and New Zealand, including Target, and selling for about $70 AUD.

We tried to reach out and handle it nicely without getting lawyers involved, but the people who stole our photo immediately lawyered-up and tried to ignore us.

So we sued them. That wasn't easy! We had to hire lawyers in Australia, and finding an attorney was REALLY HARD. The defendants tried to get off without paying a fair amount... but in the end, it cost them a lot.

How much did we get? We'll show you our bank statement. Don't forget to subscribe to the Picture This Photography Podcast in your favorite podcasting app.

The US Army has banned the use of all DJI drones. DJI is a Chinese company, and a US memo accuses DJI of giving YOUR secret images and data to the Chinese government to use to plan attacks against the American military and infrastructure like drinking water, farms, and power plants. That's a SERIOUS accusation! We dig deep into the privacy of your data and make surprising and disturbing discoveries.

We'll cover the most important cameras from both Minolta and Sony, including the Mavica, E-Mount, A-mount, a7, a7S, a7R II, and a99.

In this episode, we profile three of the world's most important photographers:

  • Mary Ellen Mark. A documentary photographer who captured intimate and candid portraits of people around the world, sharing their lives with millions who would otherwise never be exposed to their living conditions.
  • David LaChapelle. A fine art photographer hand-picked by Andy Warhol, he brings Renaissance-era storytelling and symbolism to modern photography. Plus, he shoots celebrities.
  • Yuri Arcurs. Probably the best selling photographer of all time, you see his work everywhere but you probably don't know his name. He's a stock photographer, who started only about a decade ago, but now claims to sell 4 million pictures per year.
