"When you go to Paris, which is for many of us Americans. It is like a trip of a lifetime. You don't know when you're going to get back if ever. So you got to prepare for that. So you're looking at your bed and laying all your stuff out, you're like, okay, I might go to dinner, so I need these pants. Oh, the Eiffel Tower, maybe I need a wide angle lens. I want to do these so you bring all the gear, right? Or do you? So what did you do? What did you do when you went to Paris? What did you bring? First of all, first of all, a multiple. I brought three iPhones. Nice. Okay. I brought this to 360 well, because I have them. Okay. Because you may be out shooting, and then you run out of juice, and then there's the other one, it's all charged. Or you're doing multiple time lapses, or you're doing a time lapse, and you're doing portraits. Why not? Flexibility. Sure. Yeah. I brought the X three, the insta 360 X three camera. And the insta 360 X two because I have them. And they're about yay big, right? And one is charged and has an empty memory card and the other one is empty and is charged. And if I run out on that one, I'll switch to the other one. I brought the GoPro, the new one, but I barely used it. No knock on that, but I just didn't use it much. I brought my mics. My microphones. And I brought myself a stick. And that's it. You didn't bring no mirrorless, no DSLRs, nothing. I brought my Sony Rx ten four, which is my favorite Sony camera. If you're familiar with it, it has a 24 millimeter to 600 millimeter built in lens. It has a one inch chip that's not as sharp as the a 7 series, but it has this 24 to 600 millimeter lens. And it's a kilowatt. And you get great close ups. And I didn't bring it around very much. I took it out a few times.

"But we're not there yet. You're not there yet. I mean, I feel like we're heading in that direction. We were talking about offline some of the apps are getting there. LumaFusion with their final cut pro esque video editing app and then blackmagic design with this latest version of davinci resolve that's imminent that is going to run on M1 or in whatever iPads. So the professional apps are slowly showing up on mobile affinity photo, for example. They're slowly getting there and giving us the capability with a couple of gotchas, right? Do you feel like are we in terms of the post production and the software apps that are available to us? Are we, are we there? Well, I think the software is pretty good. I think lightroom mobile is free app. Yeah, it's crazy. It's crazy. What you can do with things is really great. The new iPhone. The new iPhone, 48 megapixel, if you're smart enough to remember to shoot in raw. It's very nice. But it's still not as sharp as my Sony a 7 four. No, no, it's not. And that's the thing, right? Because it depends, I think it depends. I've talked to my friend Jeff Greenberg about this because it kind of depends on where you're coming from. Like Jeff Greenberg is a professional trainer, video editor, he knows all the things. He could produce he could produce on avid. He could produce on final cut, premiere all the things. So he's coming from that mindset of I'm comparing everything on mobile to this pro atmosphere of apps. If you're not coming from that, this is an embarrassment of riches and capabilities that you have because you're not comparing it to, well, I can do all these other things. You come into it from a, I want to make a short film about a, I have an iPad or an iPhone, some decent audio. Shooting at daytime or use the low light features of the iPhone or whatever. I'm going to tell my story, you can make something that's amazing, right? But when you start comparing to high end NLEs, that's when it starts breaking down. Do you agree with that? Let's compare the iPhone to a leica from the 1940s. How much higher resolution do you have? I mean, way more resolution. Oh yeah. Oh yeah, right? Great. Absolutely. I mean, I grew up on a pentax spot Matic. I grew up on shooting tri X pushed to 1600 that was all dots. I mean, what I have today is no comparison. I mean, it's night and day. So you get great stuff. Again, if you hire me to do a portrait shoot in San Francisco, I will get awesome photos on the iPhone. And let's go out and prove it. I'll meet you. I'll meet you out there, and we'll do some pretty awesome things. You would do a showdown? We should do a showdown. The whole 9. When you get that, when you get back. Yeah, I know exactly what we're gonna do. I want tumbleweeds or at least old newspapers blowing across the street. Jefferson Graham in the distance with the sun setting behind him, me on this side, you know, and that's when we started with our Clint Eastwood music. Yeah, my favorite day to drive the San Francisco from Los Angeles is January 1st. Because there are no trucks on route 5. Oh, wow. Okay. I'll leave it 6, and I'll meet you for lunch. All right, well, we'll take us home. Was in this with and I think I've been asking this, and you've answered it several times, but you're packing your bag. Okay, here's a real world example Jefferson Graham. You are going to Paris, which you just came back. You ready? You just came back from when you go to Paris, which is for many of us Americans.

"It's what not even a mile. Get off and then you're looking straight at the city. And sunsets, great. Though I did get a really nice sunset on here. Go on the phone on the phone. Well, that's the next thing I want to talk about, right? So you mentioned this before, but is that the next step, right? So photographers as iPhone capabilities are mobile phone capabilities increased that becomes your okay, well, I'm leaving unless I'm going to do a landscape in Yosemite or something. I'm leaving all the proper gear at home and I'm just bringing quote just bringing my iPhone. Is that the play? Now for cities with high crime rates. For travel photography, yes. For wedding photography, you've got a problem. I think you have to reassess how you do your wedding photography. One camera, one lens, you know? And you just have to do it like that. And maybe rethink where you go. Am I going to go to palace of fine arts? No. Can I bring a bride to the ferry building and put her on a dock, one of the peers looking out at the bay bridge? Yes, I would go to places where there's lots and lots of people and where you can't do it getaway car. You can't do a getaway car from the ferry building really easily. It's the traffic is too intense. But it's still gorgeous. Yeah. Yeah. Well, now it's risk, right? So now it makes those photos that you capture are even more valuable, because you're like, you know what? I could have got, I could have got gangster. While I was out there giving this great image. But I didn't, and I walked away with all my gear and this image. So other than not shooting, Jefferson, what are some things that photographers can do to protect themselves if any. So just be smart, don't put your stuff in the trunk. If you can shoot it with an iPhone versus your Nikon Z 9. Are there any other things? It's actually funny because I was in San Francisco in October and I decided that I would bring my drone with me. And as I started driving, I said, oh no. What am I going to do? I can't pull over anywhere. Because the way I work is I drive to San Francisco and I go straight to the hotel and I pull everything out and I put it in the room. But then I checked out of the room. And I had a data kill. So I was doing some stuff, and I was going to and how do I deal with the fact that I also brought a laptop. And I can't put it in the car. I can't do anything. So what do I do? So I actually, I joined my cousin's house and Walnut Creek and dumped everything there and then drove into the city. That's what I had to do. But what would I do if I was going to Seattle, Chicago, New York, I would just learn to pack lightly. I would bring one camera and one lens. There were great photographers in the 1930s and 1940s and 1950s who had their new leica with a 50 millimeter lens. And that's all they had. And they made it work, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Well, you do what you can do. You have to rethink. Rethink. You know, I can actually get three lenses on this iPhone. Can you talk about those moment lenses, right? No. The three lenses on the built in ones, yes. Okay, the built in ones, yes. Yeah, and I have nothing against moments. Forget about it. You have nothing against the moment. I think moment was great. And moment people feel free to reach out to me. I've bought some of your gear. You have anamorphic glass and all that stuff. But it just feels counterintuitive to me putting a third party piece of glass over the precision optics engineered by a $1 trillion company. Multi $1 trillion. I'm sorry. I have a story for you. So I did a portrait shoot a few weeks ago in Manhattan beach here. The beach I live near the beach. And I did a whole bunch of family portraits for a real estate agent who was doing a thank you to his clients. And I shot them under the pier on my Sony, and I had this big white sky. And I go, that's kind of yucky. I think I'll take it a shot on my iPhone 14 and see what it looks like. And all of a sudden, I had a blue sky. It was fake. But when you take a picture on the iPhone, there are 15 multiple exposures. And that's how I got the blue sky. And it looked better even though it was fake. And when I showed a client, they were like, hey, blue sky. Beach looks wonderful. They don't know. They don't know that it's really a white sky. They know that they are seeing a blue sky and that's what they want to see. And so they were happier with my smartphone pick than what I was getting on my $2000 Sony. Wow. Yeah. That's the thing. You and I have talked about this before. I think the last time I had you on, we talked about the evolution of mobile and the quality, but yet it's being hamstrung and held back by what I call theater, right? Because who are you to show up and. Presume that you're doing or put on that you're doing professional level photography with a mobile device that I have probably a better one in my pocket? Why I'm going to give you 5 grand or ten grand when I have the same gear. And therefore, you got to show up with your Z 9 or your canon, whatever your Sony, whatever, with the big glass, just to show that, hey, I'm better. My images are going to be better than what you can produce. How close are we to the end of that? Is there end in sight for people going to age out of that thinking? As a pro photographer who does events, you know, I did an event last week, had I waltzed in with an iPhone to shoot their party. I don't think. Well, first of all, the pictures wouldn't have been any good. Second of all, I don't think there would have been happy. Now, I did pictures on my Sony. It was wonderful. I used my bounce flash. It really came in handy. And that's the big drawback on shooting on the iPhone. You don't have lighting. You can do little LED lights and it doesn't do very much now. I don't know if you're familiar with the photographer Russell Brown, who works for Adobe and I know Russell Russell Preston Brown Russell Preston Brown does amazing work is the best iPhone photographer I've ever seen. He does lighting with the pro photo flash which will, I think if you snap the shutter in their app, the flesh will go off and but it's also a thousand dollar flash. I mean, I wanted to go buy it, but a $1000 for iPhone flash is a little steep for my tastes. But hey, Black Friday's coming up and Christmas is coming up. And yeah, but anyway. And my birthday, Jefferson, just saying. That's right. Okay. So but his stuff is unbelievable. And I think you could pull it off eventually. But we're not there yet. You're not there yet. I mean, I feel like we're heading in that direction. We were talking about offline some of the apps are getting there.

"Within the last year, there was a guy visiting that did the old, you know, I just stepped out of my car for 30 seconds and I came back and everything was stolen from my car. Now, we're talking multiple laptops multiple cameras multiple lenses. What they do tell you in San Francisco is don't leave anything in your car under any circumstances. And I've seen the signs. I've taken pictures of the science, the signs are very well positioned, this person chose to ignore that sign. And everything got grabbed out of their car. So propos are up there looking for people that leave things in their car. And they steal them. I don't know if you just walked out of the car with the camera on your neck, whether anybody would hit you up there. You know, I certainly wouldn't leave anything in the car. What does that mean not leave it in the car though? I mean, obviously, well, I guess it's not obvious, but obviously I feel like you wouldn't leave anything on the seed because people would break the window and take it off. If anything in the car, not in the trunk. No, really? Oh wow. Well, first of all, I'm guilty of that. He totally guilty. Do you have a hatchback? No, my car is a trunk, a trunk trunk. Okay, I have a trunk, too. Most people, because I've looked. Most people have hatchbacks. That's a real easy hit and just grab everything and run away. Right? Wow. So those are the three areas. Now, I have photographed the north beach in Chinatown, mission district, financial district, ferry building. Fisherman's wharf, I have photographed all over San Francisco all year and it had no problem whatsoever. But let's remind people that when the photographer uniform is out and doing his or his or her thing, there's a $5000 camera around their neck, a $2500 camera and a $2500 lens, roughly, right? Maybe we're talking in $2000 camera in a $1000 lens. Maybe it's a $1500 lens, but you get the idea. And most photographers, when they're out on a job, have two of them. So there are $10,000. And then they have the backpack, which has more stuff. So it just makes it's easier than going to a bank. You just go over to them, steal their stuff, and run away. The cops don't care. The blame game. The cops say I'm not going to bother arresting anybody because the DA won't prosecute. The DA says I want prosecute because the cops won't arrest them. And the mayor says it's not my fault. It's their fault. And everybody goes in a big circle. Meanwhile, if there's a black eye on the city. Yeah. You know, I wonder, and that's a lot, right? So the other side of it is people may be thinking, okay, so they still might think they stole my Nikon. My Nikon has a serial number on it. My insurance company has a serial number. I should be saved because there's got to be some national registry of equipment that if thieves try to fence this thing, like if they try to take it to MPB dot com or auto Rama or someone and sell that lens or that body shouldn't have red flag pop up at one of those places you say no, this is stolen here. And it doesn't. But that's the other problem. eBay, Craigslist, Facebook, marketplace. You name it. You can resell stuff like that and there's nothing on there that says show me your proof of ownership. Show me the serial number. The input the serial number before will allow you to sell it. You just go on and sell it. Yeah. What a mess. What a mess. So then, okay, one of the things in your newsletter, you mentioned one of the areas that you mentioned that was a hotspot was a place that I love going to all the time and that's looking back at the city from treasure island. Yeah, like those big rocks out there, which is currently undergoing gentrification, right? Yeah, let me give you the treasure island story. So this is well, this is pretty well known. Photographer gets robbed while on the freeway. Well, I'm not really. The photographer was in treasure island was doing a shoot. And the thief watched the photographer get in the car, then followed the photographer real estate photographer. Actually, a husband and wife team followed the photographers as they drove away from treasure island as they pulled off route 80 in San Francisco. They got out, smashed the back, stole everything out of the car and drove away, and it was caught on the Tesla cam. So it made all the newscasts. So treasure island, yeah, you can go there with your camera. I've gone there with my camera. I haven't had a problem. You just have maybe think about where you're going to put the camera in your car afterwards, like myself, maybe I put it under my feet in the front seat. Or somewhere that would make it a little awkward and tough for them to come to a smashing ground. It's certainly have nothing in the trunk. And I also treasure island has the best skyline view in San Francisco. Right? It's beautiful. It's beautiful. Yeah. Yeah. You go directly across. It's amazing because you go directly across from the city on the bay bridge. You don't even have to pay a toll. It's what not even a mile. Get off and then you're looking straight at the city. And sunsets, great. Though I did get a really nice sunset on here.

"In this episode, I get to sit down with Jefferson Graham, we're going to talk about safety and theft in photography. This is twin. Hey, welcome back to another episode of this week in photo I am your host, Frederick Van Johnson. Today on the show, if my longtime friend, photographer journalist, former USA Today reporter, photo walks TV, founder and host mister Jefferson Graham. Today we're going to talk about some experiences. Unfortunate experiences he had while trying to mind his own business in San Francisco with a bunch of expensive photography gear. You can guess where this is going. Jefferson Graham welcome to the show man. How's it going? Happy birthday, Frederick. Thank you. Thank you, sir. How does it feel to be in your 40s? It feels great to be well, let me restate that. It felt great to be in my 40s when I was in my 40s. No, it's good. Thank you. Yeah, as it's inside baseball, as we record this, this is a week before, is it a full week? Yeah, it's 7 days before my birthday, which is on November 28th, make a note folks. On November 28th, I'm having a birthday. And if all goes well, you'll be watching this episode while I am in Honolulu, celebrating my birthday, probably at a luau or something. So Jefferson is my birthday episode. Thank you, Jefferson. I'm happy to participate. I only wish that I could be participating with you in Honolulu. Dude, a member of ticket. You live close to LAX. Just get your butt up to LAX, get out of plane, come on out, we'll fly drones. We'll do underwater, all that stuff. Yeah. All the fun stuff. Yeah. Okay. All right, well let's talk about the not fun stuff, unfortunately. So I got your newsletter, which by the way, photo ops TV. Go sign up for this man's newsletter. I get it. I read it religiously every time you publish an episode or an addition of that. And this last one is why we are here today because it was about tips and tricks to not get your stuff stolen while in big cities, particularly San Francisco, because you had some unfortunate adventures in San Francisco. Let's dive into that. So set the stage for that first occurrence. I saw it when you first posted. This was like a couple years ago when you first had that first incident where you were shocked and you came away with less gear than you started with. Tell us take us through that adventure. Okay. And first of all, the story has continued because the camera thefts continue in San Francisco and every time there's a camera theft, I write another article, and when I write another article, people reach out and it just keeps on going because nobody in San Francisco has taken ownership of this and it stood up and said, we have a problem. And we're going to do something about it. And we keep waiting for that to happen. So it was a year and a half ago it was in 2021. I was doing a project for the folks at kelby one. And Frederick, you're familiar with kelb one, because you've done projects for them as well. Absolutely. And I was doing a photographer's guide to photographing San Francisco. And my wife was helping me on the shoot. It's 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and I said, one more shot. One more shot and she goes, I'm tired. I don't want to do anything. You just go sit over there and I'll just do the shot, okay? So I put my Sony a 7 R camera mounted with a 7200 millimeter lens on a tripod, put my mics in there, and I'm shooting at Chrissy field, which is this fantastic big park at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. It's where you would get that iconic. I'm standing in San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge behind me. Now, unfortunately in this park, there's a big field, but there's also a road where you could drive in. And I had the tripod too close to the road. As I was recording myself, one man band productions, 70 to 200 millimeter lens, you could imagine how close I was to the camera, not close enough. So as I was doing this stupid thing, be a road, some kid comes running up to me with a big grin on his face, grabs my camera and throws it into the getaway car and drives away all within two seconds. Maybe three. And it all happened very fast. Some good samaritans took pictures of this, they got the license plate, and I called the cops in a really didn't care at all about what had happened because it happens to them all the time. I assume that I was the 5th 6th, 7th hit of the day. These guys are pros just looking for idiots standing standing talking to their camera. Whatever that may be, lots of people have had their cameras stolen in San Francisco since and before, most of them way worse than myself. You know, San Francisco has its issues, right? It ain't the San Francisco of ten years ago. Let's say there's a lot of issues that they're dealing with stemming from a variety of catalysts. And so I would guess not putting words into elected officials or law enforcement in San Francisco. It feels like they may have bigger fish to fry out there than us measly photographers trying to get great photos. So under that light, I'm like, well, maybe we should avoid that city, but looking at your newsletter, you highlighted a bunch of cool places that you could still go and you had some guidelines in there for you. It's 2022. I have photographed all over the city, all year long, okay? So with no problem whatsoever, I just didn't go to the bad places. I also made a switch that if they're going to steal my expensive camera that was $6500 that was stolen from me, I'll show them. I'll just go around town, shooting everything on the iPhone. And I've had pretty good results. Certainly, the video has been almost, if not as good as what I was getting on the Sony. The photos are close. I don't think they're as great. But certainly it's been safer. Three really bad areas. The worst is Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks is a section of the city, high up a hill, giving you a beautiful overlook of the city. There's no police presence up there whatsoever. There have been a whole bunch of thefts, whether that be camera thefts, whether that be car thefts, whether that be the local TV station, was up there doing a piece about the crime in Twin Peaks, and they got robbed while they were live on the air. So I'd stay away from there. Then palace of the fine arts. This is where there was another camera photographer assault last week. A wedding photographer from Dallas out of town was photographing a bride and groom and two thugs came up and attacked him and tried to steal his gear. And the backpack, the backpack. Well, we should talk about the backpack. So no police presence whatsoever, it's just a beautiful area that anybody can walk into and run away from. Those are two really bad areas. The other one is Marin headlands, which is actually in sausalito. That's where you'll get the best shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. I've been up and down at it. You're facing, I guess, what southbound on the west side of the bridge, looking back at the bridge, and that's where you get the, if you time it right, you get the cloud layer coming over with the bridge sticking through it and all that, right? So and you look down at the bridge.

"To another episode of this week in photo. I'm your host Frederick Van Johnson. So once a year around kind of this time, I get the opportunity to speak with a good friend of mine, mister Jefferson Graham, and Jefferson, for some reason, is always on the leading edge of getting his hands on these cameras. In this case, the iPhone 14 pro max S ultra Zoom, so he's got that camera in hand. So I like to have him on the show to kind of give us his first impressions of the camera or the phone slash camera. Is it worth it? Should you buy it? And this is just inside baseball. This is a selfish episode because I haven't purchased the phone yet. I still have the 13 pro max. So I'm thinking, do I really need to get the 14? Are the features in that camera compelling enough for me to buy it and jump ship from my still relatively brand new iPhone 13 pro max. So Jefferson Graham, we got some questions for you man. How you doing today? I am doing well and happy to be here again with the brand new iPhone 14 pro max and the question many people have asked me is gosh, how do you get it so early? Well, here's the deal, Frederick. I've got connections. We know, I know you're connected. I mean, you were you were slash R, mister USA Today, technology reporter forever. So I got to imagine you are connected with all tech companies on an API level for new stuff, right? So there's one calling you now. Look at that. See that? From Silicon Valley. There you go. Okay, let me start off with the big question is, do I need to upgrade? If you have the 13 pro, the answer is no. It's really hard to see the difference in the photos that you're going to get from the 13 pro and the 14 pro. And I say that the pro version because that's where they put all the good stuff. The entry level 14 cameras are basically just like the 13. And the 13 pro was the best iPhone that they've ever come out with. Of course, the new one is even better. But the I thought the difference between the 12 and the 13 was so radical that you needed to run out and get the 13 pro. The new one, it's really hard to see for most people. Now, that said, if you have a 12, 11, ten, or earlier, you definitely want to get the new phone. Shall we go feature by feature? Yeah, I mean, I have questions. I have a list of questions here. One of them is obviously one of the tent pole as we call it in marketing. Tent pole features is that dynamic island, which I like to call the uncanny valley. But the dynamic island, which appears to be a way to sort of lean into the constraints of having the notch. So let's get rid of the non can actually make use of that space. So it becomes less egregious, I guess, if people, the Nazis polarizing, some people love it, some people hate it. Some people just don't care, but now they've done something different and useful with it. And you've used it. How is it? How is first of all, describe what it is? Or how about we show it? If you could see up there, a media shows up in there. If you're playing a song, it'll put the album art in there. And little things like that. I never look at it. It's there, but it's irrelevant as far as I'm concerned. It looks good in an ad. But it's irrelevant. What is cool is the new always on lock screen, then it lets you see, it's kind of hard here. You're not really seeing that, there's a little bit out of focus. Let's see if I come closer. Yeah, there we go. So it shows you your favorite pictures. Really nicely. And you could do, this is an iOS 16 thing, so that anybody can do this. But it randomly chooses some of your best photos and you never know what you're going to be looking at when you look down at your phone. And I can say that every time I look, I get to put a smile on my face. It's nice to see some of these pictures. The font is nice. The always on screen is something that is new to the 14 pro models. And basically instead of a black screen, which this is the 13 right here, and it's dark. This is always on, but I can see a faint little picture, and I can see what time it is. And if there's notifications, I can see the notifications. So dynamic island. Interesting. So the always on screen, I saw that in the first thing that popped up into my mind was, yeah, that's great, and I want that. I know Android users have had that since the 60s or so, but what about power? Or battery life? This is something as critical as your phone, do I really want it to be using juice all the time? So what if it's the screen is always on for an hour, right? And then I'm on a flight, somewhere I land somewhere, and I really need my phone, and it's drained because it was displaying the screen all the time. What about that? Is that a concern or as Apple mitigated? That's with some Industrial Light & Magic. The magic. They claim it doesn't need it the battery they claim it's an all day battery. All day, I don't know about that. But it does seem just a little bit longer. The classic case here is that if I'm out shooting, photos, video, four K, slo-mo, cinematic mode, talking on the phone, sending text, doing all sorts of things, the battery is going to be. If I'm sitting at my desk all day, I'll have it all day battery. Yeah, yeah. Well, that's the thing. And I guess in the end, it's all going to be subjective, right? Because we all have different usage patterns and some of us listen to music and watch YouTube all day and some of us just the phone sits in the pocket all day. So I will say Frederick, I shot on my Sony a 7 four last night. I only got a half an hour out of the battery. You know, when you're shooting video on a mirrorless camera, you get an hour. So if I get 8 to ten hours on an iPhone, I mean how incredible is that? Yeah, yeah, I know. So let's switch gears. That's a good segue. Let's switch gears to talk about that camera, which for me, I guess maybe the last successive 5 iPhones that I've purchased, the driving force has typically been the camera, right? I think the last one was it was the last one, the one where they introduced cinematic mode, which I still haven't used yet. Not even once, 7 used it. But I wanted it. And it was a driving factor for me purchasing that camera because one day, hey, I may want to rack focus, right? What about this one? What's different in this 14 that you as a photographer feel like, okay, I got to have this camera. Okay. First of all, I love cinematic mode. In cinematic mode now. And I not only does it blur the background, not only can you do rack focus, but you can actually get steadier shots in cinematic mode than a regular video. And I don't know why that is, but it is. So that's cool. The big selling point that they're doing right now is the 48 megapixel sensor with the fine print. 48 megapixel sensor on the normal wide 24 millimeter camera if you shoot in raw. If you shoot in raw. And I had back to back images that I'll have to get to you because you can see the difference there. If I shot in 48 megapixel and I zoom in all the way versus shooting in 12 megapixel and zooming in all the way, you will see how much sharper the 48 megapixel sensor is. But zooming in all the way though, that's the thing. For us, it's for you and me that are zooming in and pixel peeping, but for dad mom shooting the kids gymnastics, are they really going to be zooming in and saying, oh, well, I can see there's micro contrast here, whereas, you know, I don't know. It's not for the average iPhone user. And I don't think the listeners are your show. I just don't think that many people find it.

"How's that? Love it. Yeah, or just Google Jefferson Graham and I think you own the first 30 pages of search results or something. Hopefully. Yeah, no, that's great. Cool man. After you, if we do a search for you, right? Yeah, yeah, there's a lot. There's a lot there. You are always welcome on this week in photos. So let me know when you want to come on again. We'll do that. I am always up for coming on your channels, you know, just let me know, say the word, and I will be there. But we'll leave it right there for this episode. Folks, I'm excited about that iPhone. I think maybe the next one of the next ones that we do, Jeff should be once I have mine in hand. And I've had a chance to play with it and taking on a trip or two or something. I'll come back with my comments on how it all works. And if I'm still 'cause I still have a little bit of that reality distortion field and, you know, envy, you know, camera envy, you know, for the people that got the 13. So I'm in that mode right now. So maybe we'll chat again after I get it. And I'm outside of that mode, so have you put in your order? Oh yeah, yeah, it's ordered. It's like two weeks out or something like that. So I've got that shortage. This ship chart is, right? Yeah, this is the longest I've waited for an iPhone. So, yeah. So yeah, that one. And the iPad mini, and I'm still waiting on that as well. So let's remind all the listeners that if they're buying tech gifts for Christmas by them now, ordering because they're not going to be able to get them if they wait till Black Friday. This is not going to happen. Should be an interesting Black Friday. Maybe more of a dark gray Friday this year. Because of the chip shortage, I mean, the cupboards are bare. The shelves are bare, you know, in some places around here. So, yeah, it's gonna be interesting. For me, you have to hand craft some gifts this year. Maybe that'll be, that'll be my cards to everybody. Three portraits. Coupons. There you go. Gift cards. That's the way forward. Gift cards for everybody. All right, Jeff, you have a good rest of your day. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for.

"I get to sit down with mister Jefferson Graham. This is part two of our discussion about iPhone 13. This is Twitter. Hey, welcome back to another episode of this week in photo. I'm your host, Frederick Van Johnson. I got my buddy. Jefferson Graham on the line. The last time he and I spoke, we recorded a little bit about our excitement about the iPhone 13 pro max, which had just been released. I think that day or the day before with all these cool features in there like macro mode and cinematic mode and bigger lenses, bigger senses, sensors and all that. Well, Jefferson didn't have one in his hand at that time. I still don't have mine. But now he does, and he's had a chance to take it out in the field, take it out on a few events, put it through its paces. So now that the reality distortion field of Apple has worn off a little bit, let's find out what the real deal is with the iPhone 13 pro max. Jefferson Graham. Welcome to the show, man. How's it going? Well, thanks for having me again. It's great to see you. Several weeks later, three weeks or something like that, right? Yep, yep, three weeks. You look like you're getting younger, man. It's good. Look at that. So what's happening here with this iPhone? Are you when we first talked about it? You were bullish. You loved it. Yeah. And I do love it. And so the bottom line question, do I need to upgrade? Well, yeah, if you make video. Yeah, if you do a lot of macro photography, sort of leave it at that. Those two things are the selling points. Is it a way, way, way better camera for stills? No. Is it better? Yes. The extra telephoto. You get a 77 millimeter equivalent on the pro model versus I think it was a 62 65. That's really not that much of a difference, but it still is pretty great to have. You're basically getting a DSLR, the walk around lens, 24 to 70, except in this. In this case, it's 12 to 77 millimeter. That's a great versatile thing to have in your pocket. Now, you know, and I'm excited. So part of these questions that I'm asking you are coming from the dude that's waiting on Apple to get off their butt and ship me my phone, so I can play with it. You know, so I think I'm in that target that you mentioned. You know, I have an iPhone 12 pro max, and I love it. That's the sky right here. And quote, upgrading to the 13 pro max. And this one was, it was a tough decision. They were not tough, but it was it wasn't a no brainer decision. I was like, well, do I really need this? Is it really going to be that good? And then a friend of mine, Troy Miller, we were at this event, and he had just gotten his that day. And he was showing me some of the macro photos that he did just around the area where we were hanging out at and I was sold. I ordered mine that evening. So it sounds like I'm in the target market. I want the photography chops of it. I want the video chops of it, but I also want to be able to experiment with seeing can I use the iPhone 13 pro max as a pro camera, like can I use it and do work that I'm proud to share and not have to apologize for the work being shot on the phone? Do you think where are we there yet with the 13? Paying clients who are going to pay you some serious coin, I don't think they'd appreciate you showing up with an iPhone. That's just the reality. Could you pull it off and could you get great shots? Yes, you could, as long as you're outside during the day. I've now taken it to two weddings. And I've had some fun with it. I could not shoot the wedding cake on Saturday. I could not get it in focus in cinematic mode. Cinematic mode is video portrait mode where they with computational photography. They blur the background. Looking really as nice as some of our two old lenses. But I couldn't get it in focus in low light. And that now I've got two weddings. I did one last weekend and one that we can before, just fooling around. I thought maybe I could shoot the tables and do the details. But you know, when I switched to my Sony and my 24 7 millimeter lens, beautiful glass, $2500 lens, it was sharper. It was better. It looked really cool. That said, Frederick, I did an entire episode of my photo walk series in Savannah, Georgia on this thing. I shot every frame of it on this thing mostly in daylight. My shots in town with a little American flags behind me in the old buildings and the cobblestone bricks out of focus. Me in focus looked absolutely awesome. Yeah, so that's where we are, right? So it's not like we always say on this show. It's not an or it could be an and so for certain situations that full frame mirrorless camera is going to be the way to go and for other situations, the iPhone is going to be perfectly adequate or maybe even superior in some ways to using a big camera depending on the situation. So there's some situations in low light. Now, in video mode that's different from cinematic mode, cinematic mode couldn't do the wedding cake, but video mode could. Video mode puts everything in focus from one end to the other and sometimes you're struggling in low light at a wedding. Reception at 9 o'clock at night and your camera's not doing it, but you can pull this thing out and actually get a pretty nice shot, particularly on your 24 millimeter, not wide enough, but then you go to your 12 millimeter on your iPhone, it looks pretty good. And of course, you could also do panoramas really easily on there..

"Is my last one was a trio. It's a communicator. It's an ipod. it's a it's a. It's a compass getting it right. Yeah i totally remember that. Yeah it's and. I wonder if back then because the cell phone landscape was so random right. We'd everything from every form factor known demand back then right and then when the iphone came. They all kind of took on that shape glass slab aluminum back of that touch interface shape and now here we are right now. I wonder from looking at it from a creative perspective or creative's perspective is the ubiquity of mobile devices. This ocean a sea of billions of these devices connected to the internet right now that they could look at your photo on right now. Is that ubiquity. Does that mean it's kind of a different modality from profile pro photographers. Use these big things and shoot like this. Is it more skills based now or will it be in the future where yes sure mike you know i have. I have pots in the kitchen. That wolfgang puck uses. That doesn't mean. I can cook like him right so right. Same thing with the iphone in the galaxy their cameras. You know they have lenses. And it's all about us and shooting at the number. One rule of of great photography is being the right place at the right time You know there's been a lotta pictures on instagram lately of some rocket that was flying over that all these savvy photographers went and got it. I didn't. I felt terrible when i was looking instagram us. Oh somebody did the santa monica pierre. I had no idea. There was a rocket ship. Going over the santa monica pierre. That's a once in a lifetime shot. Yeah right but it's you know it's the same skills same skills you bring out the phone you bring up the camera you use your eye you. If the picture doesn't look at that way you go that way that way. Keep on moving until you get it right whether you have a wonderful camera or wonderful camera phone what you don't have as the opportunity to deal with shutter speed and f stops but you make it work and you can make it work and You know more power to you. Yes my my images on my on. My phone on my camera will still be sharper. The phones are doing amazing things. Yeah and when those two things come together. That's when magic happens like i. I've been playing around with the phrase the soggy photographer skills over gear right. Sog skills over gear and if you have the skills the skills and you can make wine out of water right. What happens when you have a device that is at least matching or maybe even superior to those skills and get those. Those wonder twins. Come together to do some ridiculous things that we haven't even seen before we just like superpowers when it comes to content creation and image manipulation. This is funny. Because i wasn't born in the brownie era but you know certainly we remember the basic camera with your put the button now and then. The instamatic was was easy photography while the iphone is not an instamatic. it was. It's not now it's advanced. And the you know again. Computational photography and all of those High resolution sandwiched photos put together So it's hard to take a really bad photo though. I can help you do that because you know i. I see a lot of people doing it where they take pictures of people in front of a window and like that just like it makes no sense but if you use commonsense and you're willing to work at it just a little bit you can get some pretty amazing focus on your phone. Yeah i i agree. Let's wrap it up right there. Where are you at now. What are the things that keep you busy all day long. Okay let yourself bud okay. So a my photography travel photography series photo walks. You can watch it for free on to be you can see. The second season is premiering on october. First is going to play on youtube first and then go to streaming and i have a new website. It's all about it. It's called photo walks. Tv dot com right then. My newsletter comes out every saturday except when it does it because sometimes i write more often than just once a week and i love for every person listening and watching to sign up for the newsletter.

"Do you want to bring them on. You know i click in here. You are and we're doing this whole switching. Are you recording into a mac. Mini a mac. I marry many many many right now. How many the new. One the emlyn. No this is. All one is your grandfather's mac mini. I'm waiting. I am waiting for the new mac mini or actually the new mac book. But you edit in on the ipad i can. I've just started experimenting with that. My normal flow like for the past. You know hundreds of episodes of this week and photo have been edited in final cut pro on either a macbook pro work mini now than experimenting with this mobile workflow. The last several. I think we're up to like five or six episodes. i've done on the ipad pro exclusively using luma fusion. you know. I'm laying there editing with apple pencil. Then you have to get the footage from your mac to the ipad for you to do that right correct. Correct wants the point when you just do it on your computer because it's more fun that's why so it's not that it's more efficient. It's a different way of working that it's hard to explain. It's more tactical. And i'm literally i edit these episodes with a big pillow against the headboard in bed and i'm sitting there lean back with the ipad. Knees kicked up with a drinker beverage of some kind on the nightstand watching the latest episode. Of what if you know on disney plus while editing you know and it's it's a pleasurable cathartic experience versus sitting down at something. That's by definition. A workstation right. So it's different. It's more fun and you can. You can access your theme song your graphics. All that stuff is in the ipad absolutely. Yeah it's all in there. It's know basically there's a a basic all of the assets to create any of these shows or content that i make are on the ipad in a you know a semi permanent folder that i can access from whatever app i need to access those assets from. So they're always they're always there plus as a backup there is a version of them in dropbox. Which is also seemed to the device. So i have access to him. If i'm doing something like this though. So how do i get this hour of interview. Raw video from this computer to an ipad. Well i'm glad you asked so. I have this guy right here and see if we can get focused on it. If you're listening to the there we go so it's got a little rubber housing on it. It's called a case is this is a ten one cases. Ten one hub for you can plug it. Basically into a usb device like an ipad and the cool thing about this hub is it's usb three one. And i know folks listening to this. We're often the weeds now. I'm talking about the iphone. We're talking about things surrounding the ios ecosystem and this is one of them. But this hub has a usb three one port on it usb three oh type c three point one port headphone jack micro sd regular or just regular sd. Gigabit ethernet and usb line power on it also with hdmi and inside of this little box is a two terabyte card that i can swap out for a larger one if i need to later. So this is my transport device and my mobile working. I o device so this is plugged into this mac mini usually. So when we're done. I'll drag and drop it onto this and plug this into the ipad and edited remotely move anything over to penn a two terabyte. Ssd is in there. That's correct that is correct. And it's it's user swap. -able this top plate this little ridge area right here that just pops off and you can slide a new one in there. If you want to four terabyte. I yeah and it just goes in the bag when you travel. This is all you need. No more oh man. I need the sd reader. Oh do have to read a micro esti. It's all right here in one device there you go. Did you ever see orange orange derive. Yep same here you plug it in. It says cannot read right now. There's one yeah you know this this one because it's that's a spinning disk. Oh yeah oh yeah no spinning disks. They still there. It's down here. i don't use it you know but i. I have a spinning this ten terabyte. Because you can't get ten terrib- identities interesting. Yeah i had forty terabytes on my desk. My friend you must also you have along with which i have not forty terabytes here but i have a couple of robo that are begging me to upgrade them to something something bigger and better ev. Every episode of photo walks one. Tv when you just bring all the footage and all shoot. And i'm not gonna just delete it. Yeah that's a whole 'nother show. We got to talk about. I wanna wrap this went up and talk about some future facing things with the iphone but that is that's a show that you and i have to. We have to do and talk about storage options. Because i'm battling that very thing. Think a decade of twit podcasts. How much does that take and do. I want to delete them. No i wanna make enough teas from those things one day right so i think in your case in your case you put up the audio podcast. It's edited and you can pull right down and then you you can pull stuff out of their true. It's not like you roll and transitions titles. That's very true. That's very true. But i'm a pack rat so i want the original unedited defiles too right so so what i was thinking was. Maybe i'll use something like amazon glacier and take those files and literally put them in cold storage. You know where it's it takes effort to get them out of there. But at least i know. They're safe and accessible. If worse comes to worse in the future. Because i never really need to see those files again but i still want him right. So how how many. How many episodes are we talking about. Johnson's thousands yeah thousands. It's a lot. Yeah audio not including video stuff. I've been doing for the last half a year. So two thousand episodes of talking tech for usa today. Wow two thousand two thousand. And when i left there went my keys i i don't have them anymore because i i did it. My posted a determine of your summer. Now i don't wanna be like that. I'm at europe. Cautionary tale man. I'm taking all my stuff like all the jobs that i've ever separated from or left before i started even talking about moving on to a different gummy. I backed up everything you know before the conversations even start. Everything's backed up. You know off site just in case they say hey okay you can go today. Give me your key card right. So what do you think. Let's talk future stuff for this mobile world that we find ourselves in. You know where where do you think. Where do you think the iphone. Ios world as apple is. Foreseeing is going right and al couch that in you look at the iphone. And we've got this cinematic mode in there. We've got These pro raw right.

"Welcome back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson. Just yesterday apple announced a brand new iphone that for some people will be revolutionary and other people for other people. It'll just be home. It's the same thing it's just faster and better sick with my own phone. I'm coming at this from a different angle. And i wanted. I'm joined by my friend. Jefferson graham today to talk about. I just want to get in his brain. We haven't talked at length about this yet. But i want to get into his brain about where this stuff might be going and where it is today in terms of being able to create professional quality work professional in that you're getting a check for professional quality work with a mobile base workflow from start to finish show here to talk about that as my friend partner. Crime jefferson graham jefferson. How are you doing man. I'm doing good. Thanks for having me frederick. It's great to see you again. Yes it's always good to see you. The the multitalented jefferson graham in the man who knows more about technology or has forgotten more about technology and photography. Than i know yet so this is going to be a conversation. I wanna folks focus that. Like i said in that little intro on mobile in the world of mobile and i know you've been talking about this a lot in your newsletter In videos and they'll just the idea of where what is state of the art right now. So let's let's start there what it. What is your position before we get into the specs of this new phone. What's your position on mobile as a professional tool. Okay for starters. Personally i sold a lot of prince and everyone of the prince has been shot on an iphone. Okay everyone and that's because i live in this speech community right behind me. That's iphone eight. Lebron not iphone eight to two years ago and it's blown up twenty by thirty. I shoot a lot of sunsets and morning pictures. Anybody who follows ban social media knows this 'cause i live in a beach community so i take a lot of pictures of the beach and people by prince. And because we're talking computational photography mean that's nine photos stitch together without me doing anything and it got. Hdr at its best. Sunsets tend to look better on an iphone. Then on my sony. It's a sad commentary. But that's the way it is and i get really nice morning shots and really nice sunsets and again so we're making money off mobile but aren't you cheating. Don't you feel like cheating shouldn't shouldn't all be. F stop. Shutter speeds and iso and calculating. The julia bringing out that image in the dark room or in light room. You know and i bring out. I do work on all the photos in light room and in photoshop no photo goes straight from the phone to the website it will. It will be worked on Just like any other image just like any other j. pack would it be Know again. I live in beach community. I wake up in the morning. Five thirty and i walked down to the beach and i take a two hour walk and i had a phone in my pocket. I you know yes. I could bring a tripod with me but the walk would not be as enjoyable dragging the tripod. But i have a friend. She shoes on on the tripod all the time. Though i would tell you that you really wouldn't see that much difference between the two to her photos. Yes i think. Yeah i think you hit it right on the head i think part of the the the question is i look at this and i'm over. Just trippy told over the past several weeks. I've been just sort of like really really re invigorated or re excited by the possibilities of a low impact lightweight mobile based workflow that from which you can create work that is nearly indistinguishable from work. That was created with equipment wing. Much more both pricewise and weightwise right. So i'm on that train already so this this is educational for me on. How how this stuff might manifest. And i'm looking at it from the standpoint of yes. The iphone is kind of the core in the central Of this or egalitarian. Mobile phones right are the core of of a of a mobile base workflow in many ways but then that spreads out to other devices like you may when she three sixty which are also tiny little devices or you may want your drone which is arguably another tiny device to become depending on when you get and then all of that kind of comes back to a tablet where you can edit and upload and do all that within that world looking at that constellation of gear that i just mentioned. Dc a world where that is considered appropriate. Or is it is that always going to be for the foreseeable future your amateur or your hobbyist level kit. What do you think. Okay so. I have paying clients. I meet them and they get impressed when you bring lots of year the more the better writing. Yes that's reality. So if i have people pay me to shoot their poets. I'm gonna shoot them on my sony. I'm gonna use my seventy two hundred millimeter lens and i'm going to blur the background. I'm issued a to eight f four and it's gonna be great or if i'm shooting some kids and they're not being responsive i'm going to ask them to run and make funny faces. I'm gonna go on thirty seconds thirty seconds. Go on high speed and do some fun things that i couldn't do on a mobile phone You know th that's a reality not show up to shoot a client with just the iphone. They'd laugh me out of the room. At least they would. They would now because they have the same phone. So what are they. What are they getting from me. Well what they're getting is somebody who knows how to pose people. They don't know how to pose people and how to keep things moving. And how can you know. Make sure that everything is running on time. But they don't think about that when they hire a photographer but they and they appreciate the big equipment. Could i do it. could you know 'cause. I shoot outside. Wouldn't be as good. Portrait mode on the iphone is really really good but portraits on. My sony are really really good to. He had the beauty of the mobile. Phone is having with you at all times You know. I have a travel. Photography series called photo walks. You can watch it on youtube and watch it onto. I try to shoot most of everything. I do on that show on an iphone. Because i'm showing you how to take better pictures with the same phone that you probably have. So i don't want to cheat. I did one complete episode cya national park on the iphone. every frame was done on the iphone. Because there's this hike enzyme called the narrows in it's in the water and it can go all the way up to here. And i didn't want to get my camera gear wet so i get the iphone wet which is fine. It's water resistant..

Tim Cook nixes TV show, so what?

"Should the c o of a company that makes tv shows. Had ito power over what is produced in shop. Well that's the question being asked about. Tim cook the apple. Ceo who just killed a project in production for the apple tv streaming service per the new york times because he didn't like the subject matter. We'll from the tone of the new york times article. This was a bad thing that someone with cooks power should be able to dictate what we see on the tv screen and to that. I say excuse me but welcome to the real world. I'm not a fan of the apple. Tv service which is put little on there that i wanna see but let's face. It cooks paying the bills. If he doesn't wanna series focused on a web site. That sounds like the now defunct gawker. Well that's his business. Just like exempts can overrule underlings disney warnermedia sony and other studios in production choices. That they don't like so can cook the apple. Tv fair has been rather bland because per trade reports cooking company. Don't feel that apple should be a home for dark material with suggestive content that would offend is customer base. And that's that makes sense to me but the problem is that nobody's talking about apple. Tv content. not that it's offending. Anyone i don't think apple has too dark to get viewers. The marvelous mrs maisel amazon. Isn't it's not edgy. it's just funny. And i love every minute of the crown on netflix. Which just had its best season ever and you certainly wouldn't call. That show are rated right. But i digress. Steve jobs used to micromanage apple down to arguing about what color is a button on a computer. Should be if cook wants to micromanage apple. Tv it's his store. He can do whatever he wants. Just give me some shows. I wanna watch please. I'm jefferson graham. You've been listening to talking tech.

Google's Opt-in is a sham

"To opt in or not. How real is that opt in offer. You realize what you're opting in four. I'm jefferson graham. I've got some thoughts on this. You're listening to talking tech to plug the new pay app from google. Google is encouraging people to try it out and let google monitor your finances and purchases in exchange for personalize offers that it says you must opt in four so if google knows that you eat at burger king he could hit you up with specific burger king offers as opposed to generic restaurant deals in your neighborhood. But didn't know is that people are wary about giving google yet another license to track our every movement as it already does with maps youtube viewing searches and the like. It knows where you go what you watch who you spend time with what stores you drive to and more now. How do you feel about google tracking your purchases so in announcing the new program. Google said this paper civilization feature was opt in and offered a three month trial to give it a try quote at the end of three months. You can decide if you want to keep it on her off unquote. That's what google says and it sounds great right google's putting the decision in your reality check time. Most people won't even know what they signed up for the lettering as tiny is just another window of user agreements. That people's zip right through the turn on page is just one of many pages. Consumers will see when they download the new app and quickly as they always do to say yes to everything. The first thing. Google s is if could use your phone number as identification to introduce yourself to your friends on the new app which has been registered as part mo part quicken part apple pay of vehicle to tap and pay retail split pizzas with friends and monitor your finances so google needs identification is share with friends. I get it next. Earn rewards when you pay discounts and prizes are always welcome. Then the big one turn on personalization within google pay this is in big type but underneath in very small type you see there are the most relevant offers some stores and get recommendations for ways to save. Now here's the ogden quote. If you turn on personalization within google pay this data and additional info like the location where you made a purchase will also be saved in used to personalize your google experience you can also try the setting only for three months unquote consumers are then told they can go to their google account to turn it back and stop the ads. Once they've accepted good luck finding the place to disconnect so the new google pay app.

How to stage a Zoom Thanksgiving

"Everyone jefferson graham. Here talking tech. If you're like me you're probably going to be doing a virtual thanksgiving Travel plans or a little odd right now during this kobe era. And we're gonna be spending even more time looking at a video screen instead of seeing people in person but that's okay. I'm here to make it a little easier for you in a talk about how to set up your tech what you'll need. Think about zoom. Think about laptops phones tablets. Think about tv. Think about a dedicated video display device. Which is my number one recommendation love or hate facebook but you can't get over the fact that the portal is hands down the best video calling device on the market and nowhere. Would it be more useful than the thanksgiving table. It's a dedicated unit. You do nothing but video chat on it and it's got the best camera it follows you around So that you could have like four people at the table as each person speaks to camera would then zoom in on that person. It's pretty amazing technology. The a portal. Get the small one. Get the eight inch. Cost one hundred and twenty nine dollars. I checked on the facebook website today. They have plenty of units. And if you order now you could have it by this weekend. The tenants version one hundred. Seventy nine dollars. The fifteen inch is two hundred and seventy nine in the great thing about the portal. It works with either facebook messenger or zoom which happens to be the world's most popular video meeting service. Google has its own video. Display unit called the nest hub. Max similar camera. It works with google meet which is not as popular as zoom and amazon's echo show can either connect other echo show devices or any phone or tablet with alexa app. So you guys could see your guests on their phones. Ba fine tablets. I think those are good. Nice big screens. Just make sure to get something to hold a tablet stand. Because you don't wanna put greasy hands all over that shiny ipad ditto for the smartphone. Same tablet stands should be able to hold your smartphone in place. If you don't wanna get the tablets stand. Get inexpensive table top tripod for twenty dollars or so. The laptop is probably what most people are going to be using Stick it at the head of the table and just sort of moving around as the dinner continues. Most important tip is to keep an eye level because usually the webcam is looking up your nose. Making your double chin. Looked like a quadruple chin. Put your device atop a bunch of books and remember to look at the camera not at the screen. You're you're making eye contact with the camera. Otherwise you're looking down. Hey what about using the tv. I've got a tip for you. They're apple has really cool feature called airplay. Which lets you beam images video and the like from iphones ipads and mac computers to other devices. If you can connect your apple tv setup box to your tv via airplay you can bring zoom to the really big screen. Additionally several tv manufacturers also have new sets that work with airplay as well including samsung. Lg sony video. Finally don't forget about the lighting if you're gonna go really dark and light candles. Nobody's going to be able to see so turn on the lights. Get out some extra lamps in have fun meeting online.

HomePod Mini Begins Arriving to Customers

"Of sen pro online when you visit. Pb dot com slash talking so the last big new tech product of the year is set for release this league. It's called the apple podcast meany. It doesn't sound as good as the new google nest speaker or even the fourth generation amazon echo. But you know what it doesn't matter because the speaker is small it's cute it's inexpensive and it's way more useful way more useful than the google nest. Let me tell you about it. I'm jefferson graham. You're listening to talking tech. So here's what you need to know. The mini is way smaller in size than both the new echo and google nest audio and while it doesn't sound as great as either them. It is way smaller after all again. People aren't gonna care how about adding a new homepod mini with that new iphone. What do you say so this is a really useful speaker for anyone living in the apple ecosystem and it makes the siri personal assistant way more competitive with alexa and the google assistant most importantly you don't have to worry about apple's speaker. Spying on you as apple has different privacy policy than google and amazon. The company is not in the business of selling personalized ads. So it's less likely to be recording you in storing the audio on its servers which is something that as you know. Google and amazon both do apple. I entered the smart speaker market in two thousand eighteen with the original homepod. It was priced at a hefty. Three hundred forty nine dollars which meant that. Most people ignored it. It sounded great but nobody cared because it did very little. And it was dwarfed by sales of the echo and what was called the google home now called nest audio with like under a one percent market share but three things that you can do with the new homepod mini that. I think you'll really like number one dictate text messages to send a contacts now. Both amazon speakers and google speakers can't do that. Can you believe it. If you lose your iphone which is not an uncommon problem. The homepod will send a tone to the phone. That won't stop until you find it. The best feature of the mall ditch the tv soundbar by two homepod. Minis connect them to your tb via the apple. Tv streaming box for tv sounded great for music as a replacement to the other speakers. Not discreet but as a tv speaker cliff not be happier. Apples advantage. Is that through apple. Tv you get access to a wider array of streaming services than with amazon amazon. Doesn't offer hbo max. Amazon doesn't peacock and because tv sound is so tinian nature having the audio by the side of the bed to listen instead of having the sound. Come from the other side of the room from the soundbar. Tease or tv speaker is a really nice home theater. Like addition and it's a no brainer. I listened to snakes. Hiss in the old raiders of the lost ark movie. That frankly just wouldn't hurt if it was going through those little speakers now caveats many of the mini music features touted on. Apple's website will require a ten dollar monthly subscription apple music. So asking siri to play drake playlist or great songs from the nineties. Won't get you very far unless you do. Subscribe beyond apple music. The mini plays music from pandora iheartradio in tune in radio missing spotify youtube music amazon music in many others. So which one to buy the homepod the echo or the nest it depends on which ecosystem you feel. Comfortable in the nest to myers is the best sounding of the three. But as good as that is. Do you wanna google device in your home listening to and recording your conversations. Now google amazon says it only does this when it. Here's the wake word but any conversation. That casually mentioned google or alexa can be recorded stored in mind. If you don't subscribe to apple music you're going to be comfortable with the smart speaker. That's optimized for that service. Are you willing to switch them. Spotify are you in amazon home. Like i am with amazon fire. Tv streaming perhaps a fire tv edition television where everything is about that a word in that case. You'd probably want the new

Is Voting by Smartphone a Good Idea?

"Did you know that you could vote by smartphone this year in West Virginia South Carolina and a certain county in Oregon? I'm Jefferson, Graham, ULA sand talking tech I'd love to tell you more. You've heard a lot of talk about voting by mail and voting in the traditional polling place. What you're not hearing a lot about is the whole idea about voting via smartphone. We all have our phones in our pocket. Why are we voting that way I? Mean if Jeff Bezos can figure out how to get money from us on Amazon, if Google and facebook can track everything? We do certainly the technology is there to vote effectively on our phone. It may be there a lot of people aren't ready for it. They're testing it this year began in West Virginia South Carolina and Mattila County Oregon, but it's only for the military and certain disabled The whole idea was sort of spearheaded by tech investor named Bradley Tusk who fit who's willing to put his money where his about this he's investing ten million dollars to make. smartphone voting a reality. He hopes that by twenty twenty, eight more of us will be doing it in the presidential election. But for right now, he'll be satisfied with testing it out with local races. They tested it earlier this year in King County Washington, which includes Seattle for an obscure conservation district election and while they did get more people voting I talked to. The people there and they said that most voters were a little wary about doing it on the smartphone didn't feel that it was secure. There's a lot of critics feel that Internet voting is not secure but Bradley, Tusk is out to prove them wrong. He is investing money and and he's he's he's behind the test right now in West Virginia South Carolina, and Oregon. I think it's a great idea I. think it participation would grow immensely I. Don't know that you could prove it couldn't be hacked, but I'm willing to give it a try love to try it out for city council, and for some of the elections, they get very poor participation.

They got all these patients who are desperate for their data and hospitals apparently are not very good about keeping their computer networks up in running and safely. How many versions of Windows XP have you seen at hospitals windows xp expired of course, many years ago. and Microsoft long ago stopped updating security patches. So as equium Ahmed of checkpoint said to me, hospitals are desperate and they're willing to pay, and once they start paying hackers here about it and they become easy prey the University of California in San Francisco recently paid one point one, four, million to ransomware attackers to get their files back in.

Another Judy pet peeve: texting instead of calling

"My Mom, Judy Graham has a lot of pet peeves. When it comes to tech today, she wants to tell you about her latest I love texting in its place. But when you have to make plans with people and you have lots of questions. And you want to talk to someone and you text them and say, can I call you so that we can discuss it and they say sorry, can't talk now text me I'll answer any question you want. So say you're going to have a meeting and you say, okay, what time do you want to have the meeting the next? The other person says nine thirty and then you say I can't make it at nine thirty I can only make it at ten and then The other person says, okay I can't make it a ten how about eleven now, all this could have been discussed over the phone very easily but back and forth back and forth just doesn't make any sense to me and that is my pet peeve for today many people turned to texting specifically because they say it's easier just to set plans then to pick up the phone. Hi, Judy, how are you? That's good. How's the weather? How's everybody feeling by the way? What time you want? To meet they think that texting is more efficient into that. You say I totally agree I can't stand the phone calls with Hi. Judy? How are you? What's new? How's the weather Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. But when you have a lot of questions, it's much easier to talk on the phone and make plans. That's what I say how often do what are what tell us a little bit about your texting a technique? What is because? You're you're known to test often as well so Why is it? Okay for some of your techs Intel people sort of tests that you like to send to send texts that are one or two words saying hi I'm on my way or I'm here But if there's a lot of questions involved, I do not like texting I love texting for those other reasons but not for that, this may be generational because a lot of young people never make phone calls what he said I say that's absolutely true and again I loved texting. I just don't like texting when we have to make plans and there's like eighty texts back and forth back and forth when it could have all been done in a you know two minutes on the phone. Okay.

You tell me what just happened the four hundred and ninety nine dollar Pixel for a which is the updated version of the phone that they put out in the summertime. It now connects to the five G. faster wireless networks. And again, five dollars versus seven hundred dollars for the more expensive version. Before has a larger six point two inch screen to the six inch screen on the five. It has a headphone Jack which the five does not have but the five does have a slightly more powerful battery but you tell me five hundred dollars or seven hundred dollars. Meanwhile, I would just get regular pixel for a which cells with three hundred. Fifty dollars five Jesus at least two years away before you're going to see it being really that much faster. Maybe a year I don't know. But what's out there right now is just barely faster than what we're seeing on our other phones. Now, the other big news chrome cast remember chrome cast came out a few years ago. It was a technology that let you plug this device into the back of your TV. And then cast. Media. From your phone or tablet on the TV. Pretty cool. Now, the new version comes with a remote control comes with Google assistant n a menu screen that Google is putting on your TV sets. That is called TV and it will help you navigate it. Find better stuff to watch via Google search will see can't wait to try it out finally remembered the Google home speaker, which was Google's answer to the Amazon Echo.

"For under three hundred dollars. Now I'm Jefferson Graham Ula Santa talking. Tech. If you were to walk into a target best buy or some other big box retailer and you really can't miss them the rows of those large forty, three inch and fifty insets selling for two and a quarter to three hundred dollars. Four K. with built in Roku? SMART TD. Two hundred and twenty five dollars you gotta be kidding me. Well, the sets are usually made by TCL, which has three of the top five on Amazon's TV. Bestseller list or insignia, which is best buys house brand. It has the other two spots on the Amazon Chart, and again, both of them have four K. resolution built in smart TV streaming, and they can showcase programming and HDR which stands for high dynamic range producing brighter richer colors. The best buy sets answer to Alexa while the TCL sets will answer to Alexa or the Google Assistant. So what's the catch? It's minor and it's obvious. The picture quality is not as good as the mid range and more expensive TV's. But I would argue that most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Now if you're sitting right in front of the TV, it's going to look amazing if you're on the left or the right for the far. Away.

Unpacking the Apple Watch/iPad event

"Hey Everyone Jefferson Graham Herr hockey tech. I'm here with my friend Richton Bureau Rich on tech from KTLA. And rich and I have been covering Abbas events for years, there was a new one today it was virtual it was very polished. They went off to show new apple watches new subscription services to new IPADS and Gosh. Rich I felt it was missing so much. Don't fill the excitement that we normally feel how about you well, I think you're right it was it. was rushed. It was very fast and there was something that was missing. I'm not sure what it was but I think that apple knows that everyone really cares about the iphone the most and when it's not iphone, they wanted to sort of downplay the excitement. That's the way I fell. So we got a lot of stuff, but everyone's still wants to know about the IPHONE. Now we got a lot of stuff. They didn't talk about the new iphone because it's delayed until October mid October could be as late as November. So they wanted to talk about the watch and the IPAD and I could give it give you the one hour event in two sentences. It's two new IPADS that are have more powerful chips in there faster than ever. It's a new watch that that can check your blood oxygen and a cheaper watch for two seventy nine. That's in-between the the watch him twenty seventeen, and the the new introduced to new subscription services for fitness and for everything that they do and Iowa's fourteen tomorrow there's an hour. Good I'm impressed but here's the biggest news. So so yes, that is the big headlines, but then you have to unpack everything and that's what takes time going through all the little features that apple mentioned all the things that they said, all the things that they did not say, but to me, I think one of the biggest growth places for apple will be the new. Apple. Watch family setup, which allows you to as a parent. You use your iphone to set up a child's Apple Watch and this is very important Jefferson because apple does not want to set. The Apple Watch free because what would that do? That would enable people to have an Apple Watch with any phone they want and they want to keep people on the apple ecosystem. So this new family setup allows a parent to set up the watch for their child. So you're still SORTA tethered, but they can grow a lot of apple watch sales for parents buying these for their kids. Now, we've sat in the audience and we've enthused and we've had a really good time covering these events for several years. Would we have gotten more out of today if it'd been live? I. Think. So I think we would have I mean number one you get to go hands on with the gadget afterwards that's always a nice plus You know you're in the audience I I don't think it moves quite as fast when it's in person and I'm sitting here in front of at least one, two, three, four screens and it was tough for me to. Keep up with this and it's tough to kind of reference things. They mentioned the IPAD mistakenly said, it was the IPAD seven generation when it's the eighth generation I, mean, how do you keep track of all these things and some of these things are so nuanced like how do you describe what the new IPAD is like I mean it's just faster. I mean. That's really You know I don't know it's like it's tough sometimes to kind of really pinpoint what is better about these devices many of them are evolution at this point. And of course, they've been saying that every every device they come out with this faster for years I never thought the I pat slow, but I don't play a lot of games on it well, and I think that it sometimes the apps do take more I mean my kids are still I look these things do last a long time and when people ask about apple versus other products and they made a big deal today to to pinpoint the ipad being faster than a windows laptop being re much faster than an android.

Instead, the event will feature prerecorded demos spread out over a couple of hours. There will be new IPADS and Apple Watch additions and possibly air pod over the ear headphones plus Apple's take on a Bluetooth key finder, but there won't be any new. IPHONES. They'll be unveiled next month Jefferson Graham from USA Today's talking tech podcast as more. Let's start with the IPAD basically a higher end better looking newer IPAD air. This is the product that sells for five hundred dollars as opposed to the three hundred and twenty nine dollars entry level or the eight hundred dollar ipad pro analysts expect an edge to edge display minus a home button and something. I'm pretty excited about touch ID, which is where you press the home button instead of using face id but touch ID will be on one of the buttons on the side of the unit I hate face I It never works for me, and of course, anybody with the mask knows it doesn't work for them either. So I think this is pretty cool the Apple Watch series six it's expected to be more about software than hardware with a more powerful processing chip it's expected to be able to detect blood oxygen levels and watch users could get an improved electrocardiogram feature to check heart rate. No that the roster currently is three, ninety nine for the series five and one, ninety, nine for this series three. So I think series three is going to be replaced with a lower end watch and can't wait to see what series six all about otherwise analysts think. We might see some new over the ear headphones Cold Air POD studio along with the long rumored apple tags, which again is apple's clone of the tile. Bluetooth key tractor tile was.
