Gordon Laing Wants You To Get It Right In Camera

AlphaUniverse.com editor Christopher Robinson sits down with CameraLabs.com founder Gordon Laing. He's one of the most respected camera reviewers working today and he's famous for his extensive and extremely thorough reviews of cameras and lenses. Laing’s motivation comes from his passion for photography and for travel. We discuss how Gordon reviews cameras and why he’s on a mission to get photographers to get it right in camera with his book, which is called, coincidentally, In Camera. In Tech Talk, Sony’s Mark Weir explains how electronic viewfinders work and how an EVF gives you an advantage over a reflex viewfinder. And we get some Do This Now tips from Gordon Laing about one of his passions, long-exposure photography. 

23:20: In Tech Talk, Mark Weir, "The Professor" at Sony, explains how the EVF works and why it gives mirrorless photographers such a big advantage over the DSLR.

28:46: For Do This Now, Gordon Laing returns to talk about one of his favorite subjects, long exposure photography at the edges of the day. He gives some advice on getting those long exposure shots right straight out of the camera.
