All of Teslas 2021 Model Year Updates
"Everybody, Rob Power here, and today we haven't exciting episode. We have updates from Tesla on almost every single vehicle in the lineup. So we're going to go through exactly what has changed because there's a lot here to keep track up. So tell normally doesn't make these broad sweeping changes across the lineup they sort of just update each vehicle as they have changes to make. This then is pretty unique for Tesla and it does seem like they're making these changes right at the same time that they're changing the model year. So even though on tussles website, they don't necessarily designate what model you're. The vehicle is the vehicle identification number does still indicate that and from those Vince we've been able to see. That Tesla has just now started producing those twenty twenty one model year vehicles over the last couple of weeks we'll talk a little bit more about that later but let's get right into the changes here. Predominantly, the changes have come to the model three but again, there are updates to all the vehicles which every captain a chart here. If you are watching on video, we'll go out of the traditional order here of as three X Y and switch it up. We'll start with the model three. So the standard range plus originally had a two hundred and fifty mile range that has now been increased by thirteen miles two, hundred, sixty, three the long range version saw the most significant bump for the model. Going from three hundred, twenty, two miles before now to three hundred and fifty three miles of range and the performance jumped up by sixty miles from two hundred, ninety, nine miles before now to three hundred fifteen for the standard range plus and the performance that's about a five percent increase in range. But for the long range, it's actually about nine and a half percent. Unfortunately at this point in time, we don't know what is driving that significant variance between the long range, all wheel drive, and the other trims were just going to have to wait and see once he's actually start being delivered to customers aside from the range. The long range and performance versions are now quicker zero to sixty. The Long Range non-performance has been updated from four point four seconds before to four point two seconds now, and the performance has gone from three point two seconds to sixty down to three point one as for other changes we've talked about quite a few of these earlier this week about the big one here is the heat pump house actually able to confirm that the new version of the model three does have the heat pump. This was just from one source at Tesla. So it is possible that that source was misinformed but from my knowledge, the model three now does have a heap like the model why that should improve the efficiency especially in colder climates we know that the model three has Now been updated from chrome to have black trim instead a power trunk. There is a new steering wheel electric is saying that the steering wheel is heated I have not seen that confirmed anywhere else though. So I think that's a question mark at this point in time, there's new updates. So the air wheels and the sport wheels have been updated to a new look, and then the performance model three has been updated to the Uber. Turbine wheels that are currently on the model y though on the model three, they're an inch smaller at just twenty inches rounding things out are I believe updated mirrors though I think this happened earlier sometime around September to add a heating element to the side mirrors. And then I believe there's also now an auto dimming rear view mirror for the model three. There has been updates to the windows apparently for better soundproofing, and then of course, the updated center console. So the fingerprint trap that was the piano black glossy console is no more at least for the model three does still remain on the Model Y. so speaking of the Monowai, let's move on to the updates there these are just range focused. So the long range model why has improved by ten miles from previous EPA rating of three hundred, sixty miles to a new rating of three hundred and twenty six miles three percent increase there, and then the performance model why has gone from two hundred ninety? One miles up to three. So twelve miles there or an additional four percent we'll come back to that for a little bit more analysis but just around things out for the Model S. The long range range actually stayed the same at four hundred and two miles. So no change there. But the performance had a significant increase from three hundred, forty, eight miles before up to three, hundred, Eighty, seven, thirty, nine miles incremental or eleven point two percent of course, the other big news on the Model S. This week has been the price cut. So the long range has been reduced by fifty five hundred dollars while the performance reduced by three thousand as for the X. No price cut here so. There is a pretty big spread now between the US on the ex but the long range version did see a range increase as we talked about earlier this week when we had seen that, Maroni sticker from a new delivery, it's gone from three hundred, fifty one miles before now up twenty miles to three hundred, seventy, one about six percent increase, and then the performance seeing similar level of increase to the performance model s from three Oh five before now up to three, hundred, forty, one about a twelve percent increase or thirty six miles. So to the best of my knowledge that captures all the changes across the entire lineup. But of course, as these vehicles start to be delivered, we may still. Uncover some other minor changes but to summarize all this, if we look at the average here across the entire lineup, not using any waiting by sales or anything like that destroyed up across the board previously tussles average range three, hundred, twenty miles per vehicle. Now it's three, hundred and forty. So a twenty mile increase for the average vehicle tesla sales or about six percent. So how is Tesla able to achieve all this? Well, back in July? We had heard that Panasonic had already developed technology that had resulted in a more than five percent increase in energy density on Tussles twenty-one seventy battery cells and Reuters reported that they would quote start converting lions at Gaggenau Vada from September so I think now. We're mid October were starting to see the results of those updates in the lineup, and we're also seeing improvements and s an ex and those were to use the eighteen sixties from. Japan not the twenty one seventies from Geena. Vada but if Panasonic was able to improve the twenty-one seventies while they were probably able to improve the eighteen, six fifty as well I think it's tough to find another explanation for the roughly six percent increase in the Model X. range other than updated cells. But the confusing part is that zero percent increase on the long range model s remember though when the Model S. increased from somewhere around three hundred, eighty miles up to that four hundred to rating the model extra. At all. So really it's just catching up with the previous model s updates. So I wonder if maybe Panasonic had been testing an earlier version of that new battery cell with the five percent energy density increase in just the Model S. but then it wouldn't explain why the performance model which would presumably have the same pack as the long range is seeing a similar increase. On the model here as the Model X.
Model S Price Cut, X Range Increase(?)
"Everybody Rob our here, and today we were talking about a price cut on Tesla's model s an update on the full self-driving rewrite an SNP credit rating upgrade some news out of China India that a couple of other topics as well. We'll start off with the price cut tesla today the US lowered the base price for both the long range and the performance version of the Model S. by three thousand dollars meaning the starting prices dropped from about seventy five, thousand dollars before to about seventy two thousand dollars now and Tesla has similar. We cut the price in China for the mile s by about three percent I don't believe. It has been updated in Europe but all the pricing those markets are different. So let me know otherwise if it has changed in your market this is the second Prescott on the Model S. This year following a five thousand dollar price cut on the vehicle back in May, which also applied to the Model X. at that time. Interestingly, this update is only for the model s not the Model X. That means the base price spread on both the long range and performance versions of these vehicles is now eight thousand dollars I don't think this is terribly surprising given. The fact that we are now in Q. Four and Tesla does still. Have a shot at hitting five, hundred, thousand vehicle deliveries this year but it's GonNa take every single vehicle to do that I, think and on the s next combined unfortunately, tussle doesn't break those out individually anymore. But on those two vehicles combined they have been producing and delivering under the capacity Tesla in their queue update letter said that they had a current installed annual capacity out of Fremont for s and x combined and ninety thousand per year. That's twenty, two, thousand, five, hundred per quarter but tesla hasn't delivered more than twenty thousand as next combined since the end of twenty eighteen excluding the first two quarters this year due to. Production Shutdowns Tesla's at that point in time has averaged production of around sixteen thousand s annex per quarter. So they certainly seemed to have some additional capacity and that should be the case for batteries as well because these used the eighteen sixties from Panasonic, in Japan, which have previously accommodated s an extra rates around twenty, five, thousand per quarter in Q. Three, tesla produced around seventeen thousand ax in our previous conversations about potential Q. Four production. I just held that study at seventeen thousand I. Now think that will actually increase this quarter q four is naturally a stronger quarter for automotive demand tussle now, early in the quarter stacks this price. Got On top of it, and we also had the Plan Model S. announced at battery. Day? Which I think could have removed some doubts for some buyers that may have been waiting for battery day in anticipation of potentially other updates to tussles lineup. So I think you for should be pretty solid for model s and not to be outdone entirely by the model as we may actually have a range update for the Model X. DMZ member cold weather e. v. last night posted an update that they had just taken delivery of a twenty twenty one then model x. and they were surprised to see that on the monroney sticker which. Is that sticker in the vehicle comes with all new vehicles and has things like efficiencies migrating, and one of those things is EPA rating this person will surprised to see that the EPA rating for Model X. was three, hundred, seventy, one miles that is higher than the previous rating of three hundred, fifty, one miles of range, which is what tussle still lists on their design studio. So we'll have to wait and see if we hear this from more people obviously this just as one source at this point in time, and this user also does say quote I haven't charged to one hundred percent but when extrapolate my current state of charge? percent two miles, it should give three hundred and fifty one miles at one, hundred percent and quote. So maybe it is still three hundred, fifty, one miles or maybe the software just hasn't been updated for this new version yet I think the latter is more likely but again, we'll wait and see this would be five point seven percent increase to range, which I think brings to mind a couple of things. We earlier this year had a similar increase in range to the Model S., which took it from around three hundred eighty at remember the exact rating up to four hundred miles per charge. But when that happened the Model X.. Actually, stayed constant. So this could be the X. catching up with those s updates previously, or we do also know that Panasonic has been working to improve energy density in Nevada by about five percent five plus percent. So maybe they made more changes to the eighteen six fifty's that supply the model x. from Japan, and then maybe those new cells would be adding this five percent plus range. If that were the case we would expect to see this also happened in the Model S. probably. So anybody that is taking new deliveries of either the or the X. Please take a look at what your monroney sticker says and let us know. Next up, we have an update on Tesla autopilot rewrite Alon on twitter yesterday said Quote Limited Fasd Beta, releasing on Tuesday next week as promised. This will at first be limited to a small number of people who are expert and careful drivers and quote we last had an update on this about a month ago when John said quote releasing private Beta in two to four weeks public. Beta. Centers opt in four to six weeks after that. Then all US Tesla owners mid-december above schedules contingent upon not encountering major unexpected setbacks and quote. So this new tweet, it's a little bit less clear on which step or in if it is that I private. Beta. That he on his talking about here or if it's that limited public Beta for early access owners but to me, it does sound like that first. Step of being a private Beta. So that will come out next week one week from today on October twentieth. Apparently, if that's the case, it's about a week and a half out from that previous timeline but I think everybody can be pretty happy with that. If we extrapolate from that same timeline before using these new dates, we'd be four to six weeks out from early access, which would put a day range for. That from November seventeenth to December first depending on how wide this initial releases that early access program update that might be the first time that we actually start to see youtube videos and things of the sort pop up for the new rewrite though it is possible that we may see some of that as early as next week.

Tesla unveils ‘truly revolutionary’ new battery
"Noon noon business business hours. hours. Tesla's Tesla's says says It's It's developed developed a a new new kind kind of of battery battery cell cell that that there there are are some some questions questions surrounding surrounding it were joined by Paul Hochman, the president of Humongous Media and the former tech editor for the Today Show in Cambridge, Massachusetts. So What's going on with Tesla and batteries Pole. Um, that's that's a great question. The answer is everything. Ah, this is battery weak for Mr Musk is concerned. In other words, he's announcing it does annually new technologies promises things that may or may not happen, But nonetheless, it's now been proven a bad idea to count him out and specifically. A whole bunch of patents have been applied for Ah and won the most sort of interesting everyone, at least technically, Ah, Most people think the police technically difficult and that is a tab. Tabb, the connect existing Tesla batteries to the motors that run the car and the pat believe or not, the thing that conducts electricity from the battery to that those motors in the car in some cases for them. Is actually a very technically complex thing to do, And what he's done is created. What they're calling a tin battery. And and what that means is a battery that looks like a 10 and it basically direct energy from the battery to the motors. Without that half If he can pull that off Sounds like a basic thing. But if you can pull it off the manufacturing cost of Tesla's plunge And result is his profitability goes way up. So that's one development. It's pretty exactly well, anytime you've got a connector involved in technology of any sort that can often be the weak link in the chain. But despite this, how are things looking? I mean, can we Can we say at this point is there's still a lot of reason for optimism for Tesla or is is this or other issues leading to some concerns? No, no, no. I think the optimism is fully enforced here and again, You know you have your playing seriously interesting onto your but one of the reasons for that optimism is because one of the other things they're thinking about doing is removing cobalt. Mom what is currently in an n A or nickel, cobalt, aluminum, electro, her battery, And here's the thing. If you do that, you cut out a hugely expensive component. So once once again, the tab goes away that reduces his costs. You take out Kobol. People are concluding experts are concluding that the kind of battery that he would make in its place. Which is nickel, manganese, cobalt and nickel. Manganese battery would actually be a 1.6 million kilometre or one million mile battery. Something that ostensibly at least on paper would last 75 years. So this another development is really and all going to be in the United States doesn't want to depend on Panasonic. So in a nutshell. These terror factories that he's considering making are going to make him independent and much more, much more profitable. Now. Batteries, of course used in a lot of things is any of this technology that that musk is developing with Tessler is that also cannot be used today in Elektronik devices, phones, tablets, computers, anything else. I would urge you to think bigger because the answer is yes. In fact, one of the biggest changes that's going to happen when it comes to power delivery generally, and not just in devices that you hold in your hand. But in homes, one of the biggest challenges of solar, which is proving to be very, very efficient in getting extremely inexpensive. Is once the sun goes down. Obviously, there goes your source of power. Well, if you have extremely high efficiency batteries, a couple of them sitting next to your house, all the excess energy that was developed by that panel is now stored for night time news. And he is absolutely selling. That is a very high profit margin device. There's $4000 batteries being sold by Tesla right now that you confine them in stacks if you want next to your house. Store, the solar energy generated and now run it completely off the grid. So homes are the next big Ah, the next thing you know,
What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'
"Over the last few months there has been information leaking out about Tesla establishing a new battery production line near the Fremont factory, and it is aptly code-named roadrunner not only does that hint speed, but there might also be. A reference there to roadrunner and Wylie coyote the looney tunes characters engaged in a perpetual game of Jason, in which Miley Coyote could never catch the roadrunner. Maybe legacy auto is the Wiley Coyote to Tesla's roadrunner. So one of the expectations for Battery Day is that Tesla unveils this roadrunner production line to demonstrate the potential throughput that can be accomplished with all. These advancements I believe Ilan made reference to this today as well as tussles other progress in manufacturing outside of batteries. When he tweeted quote speed running Victorio and real life dot dot dot, and quote if you're unfamiliar Factoria is a video game described themselves. By saying quote Factoria was a game in which you build and maintain factories you'll be mining resources researching. Technologies building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies and quote that you're sounds a lot like. TUSLA. So a lot of these are related but I believe manufacturing and energy density at the pack level to be the two most important things for battery day. But it doesn't just end there. There are few other topics that may be discussed at Battery Day the first. which has been heavily speculated on is the possibility of Tesla introducing a million mile battery. So first things first on that that means a million mile life cycle or another way to say, that would be the ability for the battery to recharge. Let's say three or four thousand times without having significant capacity degradation because of already done a full ten fifteen minute episode. On the Million Mile Battery I'M NOT GONNA go into as much detail on that here a link that episode but the Short version is that they're already batteries capable of producing that many cycles. It's just a matter as it always is with batteries of the trade offs are willing to make. For example, does that increase the life cycle lower energy density or? Increased cost, and if so maybe it's not worth the tradeoff in fact, Tesla already has batteries that are capable of doing a million miles. They just don't use them in their vehicles because of those trade offs rather they use them in their energy storage products. So we'll see what Tesla has to say about a million mile battery they have talked about wanting. To, get there with the whole powertrain and the past, which really makes a lot of sense when you bring in a Tommy because if a scenario exists where there is a full self-driving row taxi that vehicles going to be traveling a lot more than ten thousand or fifteen, thousand miles per year if the utilization is five times higher or ten times higher. Then to have a useful life of ten years twenty years, you're going to need a million mile powertrain including that million mile battery. It also makes a lot of sense for other utility vehicles such as the upcoming Tesla semi the other wildcard that could potentially add life cycles to the battery for a vehicle would be vehicle to grid technology. Again, we've talked about. Tesla hasn't been super bullish on that technology in the past. So it's relatively lower on my expectations list there certainly value to that feature, but there's also complexity in extracting that value. So we'll wait and see what Tesla has to say on life cycle and any additional features that could drive utilization of those battery packs higher next on the watch list is. Charging capability there's a lot of potential here. We've already seen Tesla over the years increase the supercharging rate from ninety kilowatts to one hundred, twenty kilowatts, two, hundred, and fifty all the way up to two hundred and fifty kilowatts at peak now, and at the cyber truck unveiling last November onscreen they shut a graphic that showed the charging capability of the cyber. At. Two hundred and fifty kilowatts plus you elon musk at that unveiling said quote it will be capable of more than two hundred and fifty kilowatts will reveal the actual number later and quote. So maybe battery day ends up being that later we know that just last week lucid, motors announced that the lucid air will have three hundred and fifty kilowatt capable charging Tesla's kinda competitive. So I'm not sure they're gonNA, sit around for too long being outmatched on that charging rate. If we can get a bit speculative for a moment, one of our listeners, Florian halen helped me out with this it appears that the V. Three superchargers should be capable. Of quite a bit more output than the hundred and fifty kilowatt. Max. That does vehicles can charge at today to get a full understanding of this, we have to start with the version two superchargers. If we look at the label on those chargers, we can see the voltage listed at four hundred and ten volts. They amperage listed at two hundred and seventy amps to get the power capacity. We just multiply the voltage by the amperage. So in this case that comes out to about one hundred and eleven kilowatts but what happens in reality is that vehicles on version two charges, one hundred and fifty kilowatts all the time. So the amperage here is. Actually understated the same thing appears to be happening with the V. Three superchargers as well on the label for those, we can see that the voltage is thousand and the amperage is four, hundred and twenty-five. So multiplying those together yet Max power capacity of four hundred and twenty five kilowatts. So that's already higher than the two hundred and fifty kilowatts. The vehicles can accept today leaving some room for upside and charging rate but back to the amperage, it appears that the amperage capacity is understated on the be three charges as well. We have a screen shot here of a model three charging at that Max two hundred and fifty kilowatt rate, but with. The voltage only at three hundred, sixty eight. So if we divide those two hundred and fifty thousand watts, two hundred and fifty kilowatts by three hundred, sixty eight that gives us six, hundred eighty amps, which is well above the four hundred twenty, five amps on the label right now, a model threes battery is limited to four hundred and four volts. So at six hundred and eighty amps that would mean a Max charging rate of two, hundred, seventy, five kilowatts instead of the two, hundred fifty, that is listed, but it's probably limited at two hundred and fifty kilowatts to avoid overheating if we consider a new battery though maybe some of those constraints can. Be removed and the V. Three superchargers seems capable of delivering quite a bit more power than that two hundred, fifty kilowatts. If we use the six hundred eighty amps here that we have already seen register out of a supercharged V three location and we multiply that by the maximum a thousand volts we could be looking at a power output of six hundred eighty kilowatts from three charter and potentially even higher based on whatever that true actual limit on ams it's. So none of this means that Tesla's going to suddenly unveil a battery that's capable of charging at seven hundred kilowatts just that the V. Three chargers do seem to be putting in. Place. The infrastructure for higher charging to come over time with a new cell likely being introduced. Maybe we will hear more about that at battery debt last couple of aspects that I've heard discussed the first mining Tesla has alluded to maybe getting into mining someday if they needed to that's not something that I expect here from Battery Day as should be cleared by this point in time I think they've got enough to go through without going down that figurative rabbit hole but I do expect. Yulon mosque to again plead with suppliers to ramp up supply especially for nickel next is a point on Tesla suppliers we know that tussle works with Panasonic LG. L. To source batteries from them. So the question has arisen of how those partnerships are going to work and evolve if Tesla is designing and manufacturing their own cell and I think this is answered by what we spoke to earlier with product differentiation Tesla is going to need all the batteries they can get their hands on it's going to take time to ramp up their own battery production. So not only can they not just convert all their products over to their own cells instantly even if they were to do that, they still probably need even more batteries so they're going to continue to partner with these other suppliers though suppliers give them viable. Products, which can help Tesla Grow capture revenue capture prophet regardless of their own endeavors and battery cells and production as far as tesla actually supplying these cells to others I definitely don't expect that not for a long long time if at all, and that's really for the same reason, Tesla is gonNA need these cells themselves supplying them to another oem just adds again that extra layer of cost because both sides need their margin that creates a more expensive and a product for the consumer, which is contradictory to tussles goal of accelerating the advent of sustainable energy. So as long as Tesla is battery constrained, which I expect to be for a long time. See them supplying their batteries to anybody else. All right. So after all of this, we finally come to the product. The last thing to maybe expect out of Battery Day could be the introduction of the plaid model s and Model X. potentially being the first products to utilize these new battery cells as Tesla works to ramp up that initial production it's been yearly quiet on the plaid. Powertrain Front for a while now, but the timing is about right and maybe we will finally again here's something about the new roadster.
Video Invades Photography
"In. The last couple of weeks there have been several significant camera announcements and they have me scratching my head. Canon introduced the new are five and are six and the big feature in both of those cameras is improved ability to do video, and shortly on the heels of the are five in the are six came the announcement of the. Sony. A seven s three, which is again, very heavily oriented toward video production. In fact, the last update for my Panasonic Jeanine was mainly about some video features and same thing with g h five improving video features that camera g h five is basically sold as a video camera. And the reason all of this has me scratching my head. Is because. I don't know how many photographers are that interested in video evidently must be a lot. But maybe because I'm so photography centric both with my own work and with Lens Work, the idea that my camera shoots video is. Basically. Unimportant to me if my camera had no video capabilities I, don't think I'd care. But. There's no question. There is pressure I. Guess that's the way I perceive it. Anyway, there is pressure being put on still photographers to embrace video for reasons that I guess I don't understand I was never in my youth tempted to pick up an old bolic's sixteen millimeter movie camera and try to make movies. When VCR's came out and we suddenly had cameras that could record on videotape I was never tempted to try to use. Of VHS camera to make artwork video something I, enjoy I watch television I watch movies, we all do I suppose but I was never motivated to WanNa make. Videos and partly I think because there's so many differences between video and still photography. That this intersection between equipment so that you can have a hybrid camera. Seems to me to be putting legs on a snake. It's not of any interest to those of us who are still photographers unless you're seduced into being interested in it, but it's a completely different thing for example. The most obvious difference between video and photography is that video is time based. You consume video by abandoning yourself to it's time orientation, and if a video is five minutes or ten minutes or three hours long. It takes you that long to see it. Photography is not photography. I explain. I'm going to use photography as meaning still photography. So I have to say still photography every diamond the rest of the podcast i. hope that's okay. Photography to me is not in the least time based, you can spend ten seconds looking at a photograph. You can spend ten minutes looking at a photograph. The viewer is in control of the time they are not in control of the time in a video. Okay. Yes. You can probably rewind video if you WANNA watch a certain passage of it over again but the presentation of the ideas and the visuals is completely out of our control is a viewer that makes these two media as different as different can be. Video has jump cuts were you go from one visual to the next visual and oftentimes they will do that. For example, in a conversation with the audio track not jump cutting just the video track jump cuts, but the audio is continuous. and. So there's a certain herky-jerky nece to video that can be problematic. It's not comfortable from a visual point of view. If you really want to look at the visual, it gets taken away from you at the next jump cut and it seems to me like the jump cuts are happening faster and faster and faster in the last ten or twenty years. Conversely. Photography offers us the possibility of lingering as long as we want, and we're in control of when we go to the next image whether that's in a book or a gallery presentation again as different as different can be. Next. Video does not translate to my favorite photographic medium, which is books. Photography does. Okay video can be translated to a laptop or to an ipad or something like that. But it's not the same as a book when I sit down with the book for example, I know exactly how much there is just by looking at how thick the book is with video I have no idea unless they tell me how long it is. So it's a variable commitment on my part that I'm basically jumping into and I don't know how long this is going to take unless I specifically look it up. And also with the book. I can have text I can read things or not read things there can be. Passages that have. Only with no images so that it gives me a different and unique experience where I can sort of recall images in my mind's eye while I'm reading the text, which you basically can't do when you're watching a movie. You can't recall a different image than you're seeing on the screen unless you I suppose you could close your eyes but no one does that. So. If photography has a destination of book and video does not where do you view video while you're going to view it in a movie theater you're going to view it on television you're going to view it on a computer screen. Photography. Can Be displayed on a computer screen but I don't ever recall seeing a photographic exhibition in a movie theater at her or really do I recall seeing one broadcast on television You could put a slide show I, suppose on you television, but even that's not exactly the same thing but. Sort of I mean there's a little bit of cross fertilization there. But although we can put. Still photographs on a TV screen, we can't put a video in
Panasonic Talks Energy Density
"Are at with that out of. Of the way, let's get sort of the main news here, and this is on Panasonic batteries. This is per a Reuters report, they spoke with Panasonic's of US v Batteries and they report quote Panasonic corporate plans to boost the energy density of twenty. One, seventy battery cells supplies to test link by twenty percent in five years and commercialize a cobalt free version in two to three years. The head of its US battery business said and quote they also report that Panasonic has already cut the content. Content to less than five percent of Nikko Cobalt, Aluminum Cathode, which by the way I have to apologize about because the other day in an episode, I, was saying nickel manganese cobalt. So embarrassing, but anyway, Rogers also says that Panasonic already with the twenty one, seventy cells has improved energy density by more than five percent, and while they declined to link the further twenty percent increase to Tesla's future vehicles, they did say that in September, they will start converting lions at gigafactory Nevada quote as. As a prepares to further boost the energy density of the cells Takemoto set and quote. So overall I think pretty exciting information here though a bit limited in terms of what we actually can learn from it. We don't know if the energy density here for his two volume metric or gravel metric, and we also don't really know if that increase in energy density will coincide with a reduction in cost as well. Though presumably, it would because if you make more energy dense battery cells you need. Need fewer battery cells to actually power the thing that you were trying to power with those batteries. So I think presumably cost beneficial as well, and unlikely that Panasonic would be pushing for something if there was not eventually going to be a cost benefit from it or at least be affordable enough to have a viable use case at scale I think it's also exciting that they have a cobalt free version in the works for two to three years from now, but the twenty percent energy density. Density improvement is a five year goal. So presumably, that twenty percent increase would be after extracting out all the cobalt from the process thinking about that twenty percent increase in energy density though over five years from compound annual growth rate perspective, that's three point, seven percent per year, which I think does sound about right looking at the historical progress. If we look at the Model S. from two, thousand, twelve to two, thousand, twenty, the range on the Model S. increased from two, hundred, sixty, five miles. Miles EPA all the way up to four hundred and two miles. So that's a five point, three percent compound annual growth rate in the available range. But of course, not all of that is attributable to the energy density of the battery cell. There's a lot of efficiencies within the powertrain and even things like wheels and tires that are contributing to that rate. So the improvement in energy density is likely below that though again, really it's improvement in energy density per cost. That is most important. Important looking forward, if that twenty percent improvement was applied to the range on the model three today and the Monterey today that would put the model three range at about three, hundred, eighty, six miles up from three, hundred, twenty, two miles if it were just a straight twenty percent increase and then similarly for the Mata, why it would go from three, hundred, sixty, miles, two, hundred and seventy nine. But again, that's just the increase from the battery cells that assumes no other progress throughout the rest. Rest of the powertrain or the battery pack or innovations that allow for reduction in weight of the vehicle, things like that. That will also, of course, happen over time. The other option that energy density improvements allow for is obviously to put the same amount of energy in less space or with less weight, which would improve the vehicle's efficiency. So even with the same energy, call it seventy, five kilowatt hours, the vehicle would travel farther because of that increased energy density and may be the range. Range go up to three, thirty or three forty with the same energy capacity. The overall point here is that better improvements are going to keep happening. Those improvements are going to open up a lot of different options for electric vehicle makers and Tesla's best positioned to capitalize on the Trent.

He would go through the process of trying to shed some of the bloat that the Matsushita Company had accumulated including selling off that stake in MCA in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety five. During his tenure, the company also got into the business of digital television sets and DVD players, navigation systems, plasma TV's which would kind of come back to haunt them and more. The Panasonic brand became more popular in the US though the company had not yet launched a defining technology. The Way Sony had done was saved Walkman a lot of Morris Cheetahs. Work was in course, corrections and attempts to return to profitability in Japan. It was still a struggle in nineteen, ninety nine, for example, the company's operating profit fell eighteen percent, which is not good. We get another big change in leadership in two thousand Chairman Masaharu Matsushita Retired Net essentially ended the Matsushita domination of the company. You Yoichi mortar she toe would become the new chairman of the company, and there was talk originally of Konosuke Grandson Masayuki Matsushita, taking over the position of president, but the board of directors had concerns that perhaps Masayuki lacked the leadership qualities that they wanted and that. Maybe it was a better idea to move away from the Matsushita Dynasty so instead..

"Join Forces Voltron style in order to further, refine the technology and to establish standards that'd be important as it would help sidestepped the issue of competing and incompatible formats on the market. That's something that tends to be a great frustration to consumers, because there's nothing like going out and buying something that's going to run on some form of Media Player and find out that Oh the media player you have isn't compatible with the media you bought. That's a terrible feeling, and it does happen, so they wanted to get around that so once again Panasonic did not have A. A leadership role in the development of this technology, but the company was able to build out a CD player and launch it in nineteen, eighty two when I started hitting the market. However, this does mean I should probably talk a bit about how compact discs work. Since I've done that for magnetic storage in this series, and if you look at a standard one-sided compact disc, you'll likely see some sort of label on one side, and the other side will be really shiny almost like a mirror, and you put the disk in a player label site up or a CD drive, and then the magic happens, but how is the data actually stored on the disc one this case, this is not a magnetic system. It's an optical system that means that this is a system that uses light and optics like mirrors and lenses to encode and decode information. It's also a digital format, not an analog format, so let's start by talking about a blank CD. That has nothing stored on that glossy side when a machine rights to see, D. it uses a powerful laser to carve out tiny indentations in a spiral on that CD. The spiral actually starts near the center of the D., so this is kind of the opposite of how vinyl record works where you would set a needle toward the outer edge of the record and the needle. Would spiral inward so what you're left with our if you were to look at this under a microscope..

"And also that format lost because ultimately the VHS format would win over VX and more noteworthy opponents like Sony's made a Max JVC would remain part of the mat-su Shita Slash Panasonic Empire until the two thousands. As for the VHS style, a VCR Panasonic would develop and sell those to great effect, the VX system not so much, but the HFS that one worked like a treat in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven. The company released a brand. VCR's called Mac Lord Masaharu Matsushita the traveled to the US and form agreements with various consumer electronics companies for VCR components, and this was the dawn of the home theater era, and so many things would change because of that including the entertainment industry and the rise of the video rental business. But more than a format failure, the tumultuous events and the global consequences were likely a big burden for the executive team at Matsushita. So perhaps it's not a huge surprise that in nineteen, seventy, seven, just four years after becoming. Takahashi announced his retirement, and this is where we get another exception to the typical Japanese Success Plan Konosuke in his eighties and technically retired, but still very much calling high level shots decided that his son in law would become the new chairman, but an unlikely candidate would become the next president of the company. That candidate was Toshihiko Yamashita. He had been part of Matsue. Shida's air conditioning division, so he was a cool guy. I'm sorry. Before he came into that role the division, the air conditioning division was struggling, but It turned around, and it became the number one brand in the market in Japan now out of the twenty six director level executives at matsue sheet. At the time. He was number twenty five in seniority. There's only one other director who was more junior than he. In other words while he showed initiative and leadership, typically you not expect him to be a candidate for the president of the company that role would usually go to someone who had much more seniority than he did, but on January tenth nineteen, Seventy, seven Konosuke Matsushita called Yamashita into his office Konosuke was eighty two years old at this point, and he had been retired from the Shida for four years, but But he was clearly still calling at least influencing the shots at the company Yamashita wrote in his autobiography that he had no idea what the meeting was going to be about. He was actually really nervous about it, and he says that when Suitca offered him the position of president, no one was more surprised than Yamashita himself. But is that true? We'll find out when we come back after these brief messages. Hey guys. This episode is brought to you by the Sonos move a portable smart speaker, and it's pretty darn awesome.

"Those literally at my feet right now, an old CD player, the laser disc player from MCA disco vision would also be another one but I wanna to talk about VCR's so VCR's or video cassette recorders are one of those technologies that. That had a huge impact on how we consume entertainment and might do an episode about that in the near future about how the development of the VCR changed entertainment itself never a few formats that all did the same general thing, but with different approaches generally speaking these machines used magnetic storage, much as audiotape had in order to store video and audio information a VCR has at the very least and electromagnet that acts as a reading head, and as tape moves below this reading head, the tape induces a current to flow through that electromagnet magnetic particles that are in the tape, and that flows through the VCR and that current. It's meaningful it. It can be decoded and that Dakota. Sent to television, and potentially an additional sound system as well, and that will play the media that is stored on the tape, most CR, also had the capability to write to a blank tape or record over and unprotected tape, and that meant this whole process could be reversed, and the electromagnet would generate a magnetic field, and the magnetic field would be recorded onto the plastic tape that passes by during the recording process I'm sure most of you have heard about the format war that raged between Sony's Betamax format and JVC's VHS format, but while those two would be the primary candidates for home theater systems, there were other formats that entered the fray, including one from Matsushita Slash Panasonic and that format. Format was called the X man. So Shida only introduced a couple of models of VCR that used the vieques format. The version released in North America was called the Quasar Vr one thousand also known as the great time machine, the vieques format use tapes that we're kind of in a cassette form factor. They were larger than the H. S. tapes twice as thick really, and they would slide into the player links wise rather than width, wise, the way, a typical VCR works, and it was marketed as the great time machine, because you could set a timer on the VCR and tape content off the television and watch it whenever you wanted to. So this is an early example of time shifting. I've watched videos of this technology in action, and it's pretty clunky. Stuff the tapes. A lot of space. And ultimately the format didn't take off and Matsue Shida Slash Panasonic discontinued the players a couple of years later. It was clear that either Betamax vhs was going to win out in that war now. Here's a kind of crazy part of this story. I mean sure a company introduces a new format and it doesn't pan out. That's not unusual. We've seen it in other formats like hd DVD versus Blu Ray, but what is unusual in this case? Is that mets Shida slash? Panasonic had a majority stake in the Victor Company of Japan also known as Jv see also known as the company behind the VHS format, which actually won the format war so jv. JV started off as a Japanese subsidiary to the Victor Talking Machine Company that was a US based company that manufactured photographs and later became a record label for awhile JVC was actually part of RCA, which had purchased Victor, and that came along with it, but during world, war two. The Japanese part of the company split away from the rest. Victor and it became its own entity in one thousand, nine, hundred fifty three men, so she'd up purchased a majority stake in that company, and so JBC was effectively a subsidiary of Matsushita now. This means that the parent company Matsushita was putting forward a competing product against one from a company debt matsue Shida..

"Pay there and welcome to tech stuff I'm your host Jonathan Strickland I'm an executive producer with Iheartradio, and love all things, tech, and welcome to the third and final, at least for now episode in our series about the history of Panasonic Aka the mat-su Shida. Industrial Company. At the end of our last episode, I talked about how Sukey Metsu Shida who founded the company in Nineteen, eighteen retired as chairman of the company in Nineteen, seventy, three, he stepped into a more informal executive advisory role at that time now I say that, but executive advisors in Japan can exert an enormous amount of control over companies, even after they have officially stepped out of leadership roles more on that as we go on, we also heard about allegations that Panasonic along with several other major electronics companies. Companies in Japan had practiced price-fixing both in Japan domestically where the companies would sell products at a premium and in the US market where these same companies would sell products at a loss in order to undercut American electronics companies and a gain the market in the US. So while the company history has a lot of positive elements. There are at least a few smudges that warrant investigation. We'll talk about a few more of those in the episode, but we pick up in nineteen. seventy-three Masaharu Matsushita Konosuke son-in-law. Is still the president of the company at that time and. Our Taro Takahashi is chairman Takahashi had played an important role in establishing Matsushita's relationship with the Dutch chronics company Philips and Philips, said really helped the Japanese company get up to speed on the consumer electronics industry essentially Phillips was providing the technical know-how, and Matsushita was providing the access to the Japanese market, and it was a beneficial relationship. Phillips had retained a nearly thirty five percent stake in the company as a result. and Takahashi was instrumental in getting that to happen. It's interesting to see that. He became the chairman while Masaharu remained the president because. It wouldn't work that way, so we need to consider how Japanese businesses typically handle succession, and this will become even more important as we go on in this episode now it's not that different from the way many other companies handle succession particularly those that tend to look within the company itself as opposed to bring in a leader from some other company. In Japanese companies, it's typical for president. Move to a chairman position when the previous chairman retires, and it's not unusual for a chairman to take on one of those informal executive advisor roles on the board so even when they're gone. They aren't really gone or as red letter media likes to say, nobody is ever really gone. Normally one of the most senior level executive vice president of the company will then assume the role of president, and so seniority plays a massively important part in succession in Japanese businesses as well as in wages, typically, though we learned, there's also a tendency for control of a company to remain within a family which could be another way that an outgoing executive keeps one hand on the steering wheel even after they've officially retired Takahashi. Takahashi certainly had been around a long time. He had worked at the company since the Nineteen Thirties, and he played such an important role in getting that relationship with Phillips established in this case, he sort of leapfrogged Masaharu. I couldn't find much information on what was going on at the executive level at this time, but my assumption is that Konosuke felt that Masaharu was best left in the president position for a little while longer. And that he would move up to chairman in the.
Tesla Q2-20 Earnings Report
"Everybody. Round our here and today we are continuing our discussion. On TUSLA's second quarter earnings report yesterday we went through a lot of the financials and tassels announcement about gigafactory Texas today I wanna go through more of the takeaways from Tesla's conference. Call The stock on the day to day. Probably the reaction everyone was hoping for from the market, but finished down five percent. Percent to one thousand five hundred thirteen dollars, seven cents that did compared to the Nasdaq, though with a rough day as well down two point three percent, and if we look at the charts, the direction of moves were pretty similar with Tesla's movement, just being amplified from the macro environment given the rising expectations heading into earnings, which as we discussed the whisper number. Number that was posted by barons was for a positive fifty cents per share, which of course ended up being the number I don't think it's too surprising to see Tesla not deviate to the upside from the macro environment here, especially given the outsized impact that regulatory credit sales had on that earnings number, but as we talked about yesterday, even stripping out those regulatory. Regulatory Credit Sales I'm still very happy with the financial results Tesla Post. oftentimes it just takes a while for the markets. Really figure out what it wants to do. For example after the pretty good results from key one dull stock was down about twelve percent two days afterwards, but two months afterward was up forty percent and tussles performance today, not really all that. That bad compared to other stocks apple, for example with sound four and a half percent Amazon down three and a half percent all right that being said, let's go through some of the main takeaways from the earnings call I want to start off here with batteries autonomy, and then I think the third leg of the triangle manufacturing which yellen reiterated on this call. Call thinks will be the long term sustainable advantage of Tesla. We talked a little bit about this yesterday, but I think one of the most interesting points that yuan made on batteries was on lithium, iron, phosphate, versus Nick Manganese Cobalt as we've talked about in the past lithium iron phosphate is energy dense as Nicomedes, cobol but Tesla has made such progress in their. Their powertrain efficiency and in areas like heating, ventilating and air conditioning that they are now able to use lithium iron phosphate in their vehicles and still get an acceptable range. This is important for a few reasons I think. The primary reason is because as Tusla continues to try to ramp very aggressively. They obviously need a lot of batteries. Yulon did address their constraints. Constraints on the colony said pretty much at any given point in time there's going to be some constraint within the battery supply chain, and whenever that constraint is, that's going to be the thing that determines the rate of growth, so if Tesla can now use two different technologies to different cathode chemistries that allow them to use different raw materials that diversity in supply. Supply chain or the addition of another chemistry supply chain should really help them grow more quickly at Nealon was very complimentary of the supply chains that exist in China and China is very heavily focused on lithium iron phosphate. Additionally, my understanding of the raw materials is that they should be cheaper for lithium iron phosphate, though sometimes those equations are not simple as they seem. Seem because he need to factor in things like using more cells of with your mind, phosphate to get the same energy that you could get from fewer cells of nickel, manganese cobalt, for example regardless if you are ramping production aggressively and plan to continue that for a long time, that diversity of resources is really important. You don't WanNa put all the pressure on. On one resource if they're resources-scarce, obviously that would cause the price to rise, and as we heard you on the call yesterday. Tesla really really needs nickel utilizing with your mind, phosphate reduces that need a little bit still. There are cases where Tesla's going to need that. Higher Energy density associated with nickel manganese cobalt. You mentioned that that would be the case for. For vehicles like the semi and the roadster, while we're on the semi here, I'll just round out some of the comments on that. Unfortunately, we didn't get any information on a production rate target for the semi, and despite that leaked email from Elon saying it was time to bring the semis volume production, tesla did reiterate and the update letter that deliveries for the. The semi will start in two thousand twenty one. They stated that again on the call, and also said as they have said in the past that the first deliveries of the Tesla semi will be to Tesla itself for essentially more extensive long-term validation, though they did add that some long-term loyal customers will also get some Tesla. Semis early on other points on the. The semi Jerome I believe and Ilana emphasized that they were able to think about ramping the semi now because of some reductions and battery constraints that they are anticipating a lot of that is the lithium iron phosphate stuff that we talked about? But they did tease things that they have planned for Battery Day. Yuan also said that they continue to expect to expand. Expand battery supply with others I think he specifically mentioned Panasonic LG and say l., but then also said that there will be more on that subject on battery. Day implying that do for the vertical integration in the battery supply chain, or at least that was my take. Oh, and also last thought on the semi. It's always fun to hear. Jerome talk about it. It, he's clearly very excited to get rolling and he mentioned. There's a lot of new things that they've integrated in the semi which are pretty impressive, so lots look forward to. They're all right next up I. WanNa, talk about autonomy. We've heard Ilan talk about a lot of these things, but we did get a little bit more context or details on autonomy in. The specifically Ilan talked about how he has been testing the newest update of autopilot, which of course is the core rewrite version, which he essentially described as the difference between looking at a picture and going to surround video, explaining that today autopilot essentially functions in two and a half dimensions, the Tutti being looking at a picture, and then the half dimension, being what he described as a harsh correlation with time, but not really a good. Good one and then described the core rewrite as being four dimensional so three dimensional visual space with the fourth dimension, being a smooth understanding of time. You noted that it's really difficult to convey better. A forty system works you on mentioned that he has of course been testing the core rewrite in his vehicle, and that it really is profoundly better than people realize saying quote really profoundly better. It's like amazing and quote and then. Then it's getting close to being able to take him from home to work without any interventions despite going through intersections of course and things like construction zones whatever the case may be,

"Refrigerator the in our three forty one. So. Let's remind ourselves have electric fridges work. It's text stuff after all and we're about to wrap up. Don't worry so in the very old days you had an icebox, and that was literal. You had a box and it had a compartment where you would put a big old block of ice, and that would keep the neighboring compartment cool, but it wasn't exactly convenient, and you had to replace. The is regularly. So how does something running on `electricity? Keep things cool. Has To do physics, and those physics rely on a compressor and valve and some heat exchanger coils, but that doesn't really explain things. Does it all right so let's imagine this. You've got a continuous path. You've got a compressor on one end of that path, and you have an expansion valve on the opposite end of the path, and on either side so I think those top and bottom. Let's say the compressors at the top. The expansion valves at the bottom, and then you've got a coil on your left in a coil on your right, and we'll say the coil on your left is the one that represents the coil that's inside a refrigerator, and the call on the right is one that represents the coil that's outside the refrigerator. Both of these are called heat exchanger coils. The one that's on the outside is also known as the. The condenser so ultimately the whole idea is to transfer heat from the inside of the Fridge and dump it on the outside of the fridge. The compressors job is to circulate the refrigerant through the system and to compress it. The refrigerant is made of something that has a really low boiling point like below the freezing point for water. So this is something that we would typically encounter as a gas, but. You want to get it low enough so that you can actually turn it into a liquid. The compressor pumps gas from the fridge side the cold side, and it compresses that gas, right, and and pressurise it, and this also causes the gas to heat up as you pressurize gas, its temperature increases, and this hot refrigerant gas than moves into the heat exchange coil on the outside of the fridge, and that's where the heat will dissipate. Typically it transmits the heat to a series of thin fins, and then the heat just. Dissipates into the environment the gas inside the coil. Starts to condense, and it condenses into a liquid that's still held under high pressure. The pressure allows the refrigerant to stay liquid, even though it would normally boil off into a gas because it was still warmer than what is typical, boiling point would be. The refrigerant then will flow through the expansion valve, and that maintains the difference in pressure between the condenser side, which is again high pressure. That's where the compressor is pumping refrigerant into. And then low pressure on the fridge. So on the other side of the expansion valve is that low pressure coil, and when the high pressure liquid passes through the expansion valve, it immediately boils off, and as it boils off temperature drops drastically. It drops down to whatever the boiling temperature is for that refrigerant, so since the boiling temperature is below zero that means the coils to below zero, and then that cold refrigerant can start to absorb the heat from inside the fridge again, carrying the heat from the food that's in the fridge away and the whole process starts up again. Met So, she does fridge was part of the national line of products, and it was an expensive appliance. In fact, the company itself described it as quote highly acclaimed by people in high income households in quote. By nineteen fifty four, so she was starting to market radios to the United. States which was a big step for the Japanese company. The radio market in the US was already a mature one on top of that American consumers weren't really familiar with Japanese brands that much Japan had not gained a reputation for electronics in the US in the nineteen fifties. It was going to be a really tough battle. And you know we haven't even reached the point where Metsu Shida introduced panasonic as a brand name. GonNa save some stuff for the next episode rate.

"That the current we're going to talk about is direct current meaning the current is always flowing in the same direction. The circuit is essentially a one way street. In as opposed to something like alternating current batteries have a negative. And a positive terminal, and that means that between the negative and the positive, not physically between in the battery itself but rather. The difference in that negative and positive means there's an electric potential between the two or voltage, so if you were to attach a conductive pass to those two terminals that would allow current to flow then current will flow, and we describe current as moving from positive to negative, though you could talk about electric electrons flowing through a circuit, and in that case you're talking about. Two positive, so the flow of current is opposite the flow of electrons. The thanks Benjamin Franklin now. There's nothing more than a connective path just like copper wire from one end of the battery to the other. The battery's going to heat up currents gonNA flow, and then it'll just keep doing that until the battery goes dead when all the electrochemical processes inside the battery slowed down, because the active elements have all been used up, but that would make no sense. There'd be no point in doing that. You're just using a battery, so we use batteries to do work, so we connect them to circuits and those circuits have a load on them. A load in a circuit is a component that consumes electric power typically so that it'll do something right it's it's a load that typically corresponds with some sort of action, not necessarily there are components and circuits that don't. You know actively do anything, but it's a good rule of thumb, so a light bulb is an electric load. LIGHTBULBS use electricity to flow through a filament that has a fairly high electrical resistance that means a resistance to electricity flowing through that substance, and the electricity wants to flow through the filament. It has to go through the film if it wants to get to the other end of the circuit and it really badly wants to do that because of that electric potential. Potential that voltage, so the electricity assuming that the whole package is high enough in the electrical resistance isn't too high, will just a High Cup? It's metaphorical Britches and push through that filament despite the electrical resistance, but some of the electricity converts over into another form of energy that of heat the filament heats up to the point that incandescent or glows with a bright light, and I've talked a lot about incandescent in fairly recent episodes so I won't do that again here. Now, one thing I did not see while I was researching. These bicycle lamps was whether a suitcase had the batteries mounted in series or in parallel now if I had to guess, I would say parallel because the two arrangements have different effects. There are different reasons why you would do this each battery has a particular voltage or electric potential between the two terminals. Link batteries in series so that you have one right after the other, the the positive terminal on battery a is against the negative terminal of Battery B and the positive terminal battery, B is against the negative terminal. A battery. See then what you managed to do. is increase the overall voltage by using these three batteries in series. So that means you could do A. A job that requires more voltage a harder job with three batteries in series. Then you would be able to do with a single battery now if you mount batteries in parallel so that the terminals of the batteries are all connected to a common conductor. All three positive ends are connected to the same conductor. All three negative ends are connected to the same conductor. You increase the capacity of the batteries. How long they can work before you need to replace them. You can't do a harder job than one battery can, but you can do the same job. A single battery can, but for longer.

"Hey there welcome to tech stuff I'm your host Jonathan Strickland I'm an executive producer with iheartradio and a low of all things tech. And you know guys. It has been a while since I have done a deep dive on the history of a tech company, and that's partly because I've covered. A lot of tech companies on this show, and when I think I should do a series about such and such a company I'll then go and do a quick search and discover that you know I already did that. And that's the challenge of having a tech podcast that has more than twelve hundred episodes in the archives. Is that often I have already covered things that I thought I should cover, but one company I have never done. A full rundown on is Panasonic. Now I've talked about Panasonic and other shows particularly ones about stuff like televisions, but I've never really sat down to research the company's history, so we're fixing that today now for me when I think Panasonic I often think about. The consumer electronics showcase, and that's because whenever I attended see. Panasonic was one of the companies that always had a very large impressive presence. There Panasonic traditionally has a long and comparatively narrow space in the central hall at CAS that'd be the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, which has three massive exhibition halls, North Central and south now when I say had a narrow space just mean that really the space was longer than it was wide right. It wasn't a square as more of a rectangle now. The Central Hall typically has a few other heavy hitters in that space as well in that General Exhibition Space Sony has a booth in the central. Hall, Samsung and LG among others. Panasonic often has a spectacular stage area. It's one of those booths that really grabs your attention, and soon as it comes into your view. But I had no idea how old the company was, or what sort of things led to it becoming a major player in the electronics space, the company's story actually stretches back more than a century, though the company has only officially gone by the name Panasonic since two thousand eight before that it was known as the mets Cheetah Electric Industrial Company, and it all begins with a guy named Cosa Que Matsushita and his business of producing. Attachment plugs and we all have humble beginnings I suppose or us. Come. SUITCA was born in Eighteen, ninety, four in Japan back when Japan was still an empire, and his family was fairly well off at least initially, it was going to sue. Kate was the youngest of eight siblings. His father was a landowner and one of the more influential members of the small community where the family lived, but his father invested poorly, and he lost much of the family's wealth, due to speculation gone wrong. A theme we find quite often in the world of technology, but that's another story. The family moved into a nearby city in a small house, and when Konosuke was about to graduate elementary school or or the equivalent to elementary school, his family apprenticed him to a Hibachi store in Osaka, which required him to leave his family behind. You actually had to get on. On a train and travel to Asaka to work there. He cleaned the shop and he would clean the Hibachi. He was also in charge of looking after the shopowners children, but the Hibachi shop wasn't long for this world, and it went out of business. Konosuke was able to find new apprentice ships with a store that sold an exotic new import from the UK. Bicycles though it was during this apprenticeship that Kinda suitca learned how to use metalworking tools and stuff like lathes kinda became interested in using tools to craft things, and he spent five years in his apprenticeship, he considered actually leaving the apprenticeship in order to further his education, but he actually got some advice from his father, and his father said. Hey, you know what don't worry about education so much. Stick to this. You're learning a lot. You're learning about how to use these tools. You're learning the craft. You're learning about business. Skip the education. You're getting the education. Education you need where you are. What you should do is just study this until you can have your own business, then you can hire people who have an education and I kinda dig that story. It has a charm to it, and also kind of falls in line with so many other entrepreneurs, who, either didn't finish or never even started further education and instead focused on their businesses. It's another one of those themes we see in tech now that being said dropping out of school is not exactly a sure fire way to go into a successful business. A lot of other factors have come into play as well, but it is something that we've seen a lot of in the tech spear in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ten, Konosuke joined the Asaka Electric Light Company, he was fifteen years old, and electricity was just coming to Japan. Konosuke was fascinated by it. He was kind of thrown into the deep end pretty early on I, really big job was to work on wiring up a theater in Osaka, and this was an enormous undertaking I. Mean you're installing wires in a very large building that has never had electricity. The whole project ended up taking half a year Konosuke became a bit of a taskmaster, according to the official Panasonic history. He led his team at age fifteen, no less to work very long hours in order to get this job done, and that effort took its toll on him. Suitcase immune system was weakened probably from all the exhaustion, and he actually contracted pneumonia, but fortunately he did recover by the time he was twenty, two Konosuke was married, and had risen to.

"Put on his makeup, but before we start I want to talk a little bit about why do this livestream real quick in the main reason. Is this big announcement that now? That Elizabeth's put out earlier this week? That triggered a lot of media outlets. Arguably mine included inside of our community to kind of talk about it as Olympic is fall in the sky's falling. It's all over for Olympus etc I. Know Rob, or I knew rob was affiliated with the company, so I sent him a quick message like rob you okay, man, what's going on and he was like dude. There's a lot of disinformation. Let me! Set you straight. ABC and I was like okay well. Would you be willing to come on and say that on the show so hopefully use the platform of whip to demystify this stuff and lucky enough he said yes, and here we are so rob night man, welcome to the show man how you doing. Hey, I'm good man. Thanks, traveling I I appreciate the opportunity to actually. Have a real conversation about all this crazy stuff. You mean versus salacious headlines. I've read a lot of expert opinions on facebook over the last few days in. It's A. Very few experts actually chiming in anything's. The you say expert opinions, you say expert opinions with with quote marks right indeed. UNINFORMED, experts agree that ABC. So. Let's listen before we dive into the let's talk a little bit about just set. The stage of who robbed night is and what your affiliation with Olympus gives us that. Give us the back story. Yeah, well I'm I'm basically photography teacher I'm from predominantly do destination photo workshops, but obviously with all this stuff. I'm not doing that so I teach photography I go to events and give presentations I go to camera stores. All all sorts of anyway I can interact with photographers and and teach photography socially nature, photography, travel, photography, and about going on a year ago, Olympus, approached me and asked me to be a part of their new. Team they have the they've had the visionaries for a while and. There's the educator team now and then the what is it explores which is their social media folks? And I'm basically a brand ambassador. That's that's what we're called. You know I'm a part of the educating which is is not a job as much as it's a relationship, you know I use their equipment to do what I do, and they understand the value of that. People come on workshop with me and they see me shooting with you know my gear and they want to go buy it and that's that's kind of you know my job, and then they send me out to do things and and you know what would have been a full spring of birding events and nature photography events. You know on behalf of Olympus was be. Sitting at my house, my kids trying to figure out what he'll do, but but that's. That's the nature of what I do I'm I'm a brand ambassador as far as Olympic is concerned. I love. I love that. Okay, so let let's let's dive in and talk a little bit about where things are today right so. On the heels of that I know you and I sort of interacting, you know we were ambassadors of different. We I still am, but you were ambassador on Panasonic side, and then made the jump over to Olympics. That's a whole `nother show. We're going to save that for a different show about the impetus and driving factors behind that decision. Which is deep I? Really I don't want to do that an injustice, but let's let's let's focus on this side so olympus right so. Looking looking at the company of Olympics, a story brand right so Olympics. Olympics I think like I think Panasonic. Especially Panasonic because microphone thirds I think Sony Canon to when I saw that news, the knee jerk reaction was Oh crap. Okay, we're losing one of these. These pillars in the industry story brand like a Kodak is folding and okay. So what's going to happen and people that are shooting at what's going to happen to their cameras? There's suddenly going to stop working. Not The case, but you know you those things go your mind. The doom and gloom hits I. Think is maybe human nature, doom and gloom first, and then the reality of what it is. It's so set that stage for. What's the reality of this announcement? Is Olympics like just? Sin And everybody in the Camera Division home and know people that have the cameras you gotta go. Buy Spare parts at garage sales now or is it? Well the first thing I want to say is that I do have a relationship with Olympic, but I'm not I'm not speaking for you. Know Olympus. Corporate when I'm talking about this and the things that I'm going on to answer that question are the things that. Mostly, what everyone else can read online? There's there's the the letter of intent that has posted on Olympus website. I have pieces of that to sort of reference and then we did as an ambassador. I do have sort of Cuban a sheet that that Olympus sent me, so that's as much insider information as as you can get. But basically they they have announced that they are going to talk to company about buying the imaging division from Olympus and Olympics makes they have an imaging division. They have medical. You know medical devices, and you know they don't only make cameras. So what they're talking about is taking the camera business and selling it to this company and Japan Ajay. Ip and
5 Ways to Improve Your Videoconference Presence
"Needless to say I've had some interesting online conversations over the last couple of months. I have seen parts of people's houses that I really wasn't prepared for and then there has been a mix of interesting lighting in tin can audio. Yes it has been the wild wild west. So what I've decided to do is take the microphone by the horns and do two things for my contribution to the greater video conferencing world. I I have some tips today. That are easy to enable and that with a little adjustment here or there you should be able to enable. You should be able to use these pretty quickly second later this week. I'm releasing a new online workshop. Called the essential steps to impressive video conferencing. It's a one hour movie that covers audio video and environment and I really get into some cool tips now. I'll talk more about this later in the show. But I'm GonNa tell you right now. That is free to our inner circle members who support this podcast on patron for right now. Let's get to those five tips already tip number one get the to Kia. Yes and you probably want wine. Do you want me to and I'm thinking more like Ikea. Dot Com right because shopping inside care right. A lot of places probably just isn't going to happen but I can't dot com is doing well and if you go to the search box on in enter diffused lighting. You'll get a variety of lamps and lampshades. That are exactly what you need one way or another one of. Them's going to be something that you need now. What is the deal with this Derek? Well here's the deal that the lighting on so many of these calls that I'm watching is terrible. The light tends to be too harsh the wrong color. You all sorts of things and really. What I'm seeing is that people really aren't thinking about. How do I get a flattering light on my face? Which should be really kind of at the top of the list like this. I don't WanNa look terrible. When on these webcams alrighty so how do I look better well? The rule for portrait photography applies to video conferencing as well which is the larger the light source right in the closer to your face the softer the light. And then if you position that light so this more or less you know coming straight on to your face you know. That's what we call fashion lighting and it is very flattering. There's a reason why fashion photographers use it. It makes people look pretty so going back to Ikea if you shop on Kia and you shop. Four diffused lighting. You'll see these lamps and all sorts of goodies that you can accessorize your desk with in suddenly. Look a ton better and the reason why I pick you could get these all sorts of places. But they're actually quite affordable so you get a very attractive desk accessory now and you will look much more attractive on camera if you follow this tip. Now here's the other part of that tip which is get something that's daylight balanced or s close to daylight balanced as possible and again. This is another mistake that I see so often. Which is if you have a tungsten lightbulb shining on you. You're going to be orange. And if you have fluorescent tubes eliminating your mug you're GonNa be Green and neither of those really make great colors for face right so you want a daylight balance tube or as close to daylight as you can get so two parter. One diffused lighting coming straight on and be second part of one. Get as close to daylight balance as you can already. That's tip number one. Here's tip number two. It's called Darling. You Look Marvelous now. Unfortunately those built in seven twenty p Webcams for many laptops and desktops. Just aren't very flattery. And I would go so far as to say that. They are often terrible cracks me up. I have a a state of the art macbook pro thirteen inch. This is a gorgeous machine. It does everything a beautifully except for one thing except for one thing it has that lousy seven twenty p facetime camera that when I turn it on and I look at me I do not feel good. Do not feel plus. They can't control it It has way too much depth of field. I can't control exposure. I mean just goes on and on these things are agonizing and especially for those of us who like photography their double agonizing. So we've got to get away from those now. There are a couple of things you can do. If you have a cam link already which is a digital interface that allows you to connect your digital camera to your computer. You have a lump of gold right now because they are hard to find the ones that I really like are the ones who made by El Gato however if you do a little searching online and you search for video digital interface there are some other ones and there's one right now that's fairly affordable from e can get h Made by I o gear. I think it's like ninety nine bucks That people are saying works. Pretty well and the supply of those seem to be you know pretty regular. I know that this is probably the one thing that many people don't have but is the one thing that many people should get in especially in our audience because our audience as full of people who have these beautiful Sony Olympus Panasonic Fujifilm Nikon Canon cameras right. If you have a cannon camera by the way cannon just came out with some software that you can use and you don't have to get the digital interface and just play your cannon camera in so if you're a canon shooter you may want to check that out
Beyond Technique: Charles and Jennifer Maring Discuss Growing Outside of Your Comfort Zone
"This is Shamir Young. And I'm joined by my co host and social distancing buddy. Skip Cohen. Boy. Isn't that the truth? I got I got all excited yesterday. Because our daughter-in-law Us handmade masks. I'm serious that's so sweet. Mine is a pirate and she has got bumblebees. So the fun thing about the pirate is living in Florida. It looks like it's the Buccaneer logo so I have a feeling that I can't wait to go into a non-social distancing mode and having run to the supermarket and where my new mask. I don't know about you but through this pandemic I am constantly looking for something to fill in a gap on timewise. Now because I'm a writer and I do podcast and blog and all that stuff. I'm probably a little busier than most people are right now but on the other side of the coin. I am having so much fun. Just following some of the some of our own content over at Plata pod dot com on the blog and also on instagram. Oh for sure you know. It's a lot of photographers have downtime right now. Needless to say and one of the things that we can be doing is projects at home to stay creative. And you're absolutely right. Plata pod is putting out a bunch of cool content on their blog about project ideas that we as photographers and creatives can do at home so I highly encourage listeners to go check out. Platypus DOT com slash blog. Just yesterday we posted about macro photography that you can do in your own home another photographer. Joe Pelicans Own. We have a blog post from him about how. You don't even need to leave your car to take some cool photos. We've got some Lego photography as well on the blog is just a ton of cool ideas that we can do to stay creative right now and then if you run out of what you're reading on the blog wander over to instagram because Hilmar Smith is sharing something every single day over on the instagram page. And it's just it's from photographers from and they're not necessarily professional summer. Just good strong serious. Hobbyists others are working professionals. And they're all things that they're doing to change their perspective on the way they're capturing images and there's some very cool and fun ideas there especially to take advantage of during this pandemic near inspiring. So let's get this show on the road because we've got a great one today. Yes we have got Charles Jennifer marring with us today and this is truly a kick and I use that expression alive but this one really is a kick They have been friends of mine for a whole lot of years going back to my early early. Wpi days both of them are artists. Photographers there podcasters. Their writers educators and they couldn't be more diverse in their focus on business. They're also both Panasonic Bloomberg's ambassadors and they were to the very first artist take prototypes of the new Plateau Ball Ball head out for field review right after. Wpi most important of all and the reason joining us on beyond techniques today is the way they've changed their business over the years today. Marring visuals regularly demonstrates their commitment to imaging but together in style comes of wide variety of lifestyle topics well beyond just photography now right now. We're all going through the same challenge and your diversity and you skill set as a photographer has never been more important. The pandemic has changed all our lives. But we're not going to be hunkered down forever and we WANNA help you with ideas. So you hit the ground running when things get back to some level of normalcy. And maybe there's some things that are gonNA come up today in the conversation that'll help you change some of the things you're doing right now while you are hunker down so Charleston Jennifer. If I didn't totally screw up technology here. Welcome to beyond technique. Hi How are you guys today? Be here it's good to have you guys. We're so excited to have you both you. Two are definitely the dynamic duo of creativity and you know we like to kick things off with our favorite first question and this is to the both of you or either one that wants to take it. But could you just kind of enlighten us on how you got started? Give us your background and kind of evolution of high. You got to what you're doing today Yes so you know. I'm a second generation photographer. My Dad was a photo enthusiast growing up that built a darkroom in the house. And about the time I was seven years old and so just seeing I print come to life As a young child it's like it's like magic and so I learned to print long before I picked up a camera and then In my high school years I started picking up the camera and moving forward with it and It's just evolved from there and My my father. Photographs of weddings and portrait's When I was in high school but then I just Kinda took all of that and ran with it and so It's been an evolution. Starting at that point very cool and myself I mean I. I've always been really interested in arts and photography and I mean Charlie. I met when I was like literally eighteen years old. So it's been quite a journey over you know two decades together and you know it's it's really cool to be involved in something that you know as a young person you've dreamed of and then as an adult you see everything kind of coming to fruition. Well it's interesting because the two of you are both out there together as educators. You're both out there together as photographers artists. And there's so many things that you share and just before this podcast started for our listeners. We were talking about when when I remember my. I guess my first presentation broadcast or Ashley wouldn't have been broadcast. I think it was just a A blog post from together in style and Jennifer. You're talking about ideas for entertaining over the December holidays and that diversity. His you guys have stayed true to that constantly constantly but continually changing and morphing into some other aspect of our lifestyle development. And I. I'd love to hear where did Or or when did Together in style. Start to take shape and also and also. Let's talk about where you see it going because right now it's so relevant where everybody is hunkered down. But as I've reminded everybody and other podcasts and blog posts hunkered down. Doesn't mean hunkered down from Your Business what you've got to do to stay safe and healthy. So let's talk about a little bit about together in style and also things you guys are doing now. Well I think You know we've been surrounded by surrounded by so much lifestyle work organically We photographed many different books with celebrity party. Planner David Tara early on and we were just constantly lifestyle driven work and what we realized along. The Way with that was that we were bringing to the table. A lot of creativity to the photo shoots and we realized that we had our own knack for the vision of lifestyle and so as we started to interact and started to move more towards video. We felt like we should be sharing this so that we can build trust with our clients on a deeper level than I'm congested. A camera actually someone who has a sense of style and so I think that's where it kind of evolved from. Yeah an interesting enough. We've always been a the type of people that have embraced change we've always Seek new opportunities whether it was in photography or expanding our own availabilities in sharing our ideas with our clients and know sharing ourselves as lifestyle Experts and other avenues Such as like home decor or recipes or Just particular you know we would do little inspirational shoots and basically gave our clients at different perspective of who we were and it also challenged US personally to come up with specific ideas in T- them come to life you know I'm curious about you just mentioned The word challenge and one of my favorite things that I love to ask is about an artist's challenge photographers challenges. The challenges that we all face as we grow businesses and develop as as artists. And so I'm curious as you've gone through this evolution Of Imaging video and together in style are there any challenges that you kind of stumbled on along the way? And how did you overcome that? I think daily we have challenges and it's one of those things that is a part of everyday life and it's a growing pain And I'm happy to have them because ultimately it ends up in something that Either learned a lesson One way or another and And it's really a cool thing to do. It's it's interesting to go outside your comfort zone and to start to recognize the potential in living. I'm without feeling a
Fujifilm X-T4 Launch, DPReview Analogue Forum and Jonas Rask
"Hello everyone and welcome to this week's episode of caucus take which is my take on photography news this week. So let's begin now. It seems twenty. Twenty is all about flagship. Cameras and Fuji. Film Wasn't going to be left out so they just announced their brand new flagship hybrid. Murless camera the new x t four for those of you who might not be acquainted with the term. Hybrid Camera. It's basically a digital camera that can do both stills and video equally well and for years the top two camera lines has been the Panasonic G H series and the Sony a seven series but Fujifilm challenged their market dominance back in September of twenty eighteen by launching the now famous x t three for shooters the XY. Three was groundbreaking terms of the features. It offered seriously offers as well as still shooters but the one thing that was missing. And what the competition had already at that? Time was in body image stabilization. Well no more. The main feature of the brand new x t four is the addition of the older exit ones ibis mechanism updated of course and matched to Fujifilm's latest and greatest sensor and processor combination. It's important to note. The X T three also has the same sensor and processor combination so the image quality south dean the x t three and the X X T. Four won't be the same between these cameras but the difference is of course again. The addition of ibis but as well. There's a brand new three hundred thousand actuation shutter mechanism with magnetic springs to dampen and quite the entire shooting experience as well a brand new seven represent more capacity battery system any turbo charged firmer update. That frankly does circles around the firmer of the x t three which again shares the exact same processor as the x t four so look for a upcoming future firmer update I hope the launch price of seven hundred dollars of the four is well in line with the competition regardless of the sensor size. But what differentiates these various cameras between Fuji Film? Sony and Panasonic is the availability of excess series which includes third party cinematic lenses for which Sony and Panasonic have a much larger ecosystem of third party support however many still feel including myself. That Fuji Film Has the Best Balance of sensor size native Lens Selection and firmware. That gives equal weight to both stills and video shooters over the competition as many of you know. I work closely with Fuji Film Canada and was given an early pre-production copy to test before launch. I'll leave links in the show notes to my article on Fuji Lab as well as I do channel on my first impressions on this camera. But if you don't WanNa go there I'll just let you know my overall thoughts on the camera. So far is very positive. I mentioned this in both my video and article that this camera is what the original x h one should have been back in twenty. Eighteen Fuji Film was too anxious to release the camera the X. H. One and decided to use the aging process or pro which was the third iteration of their processor instead of waiting for the upcoming x processor for that was eventually launched. The xt three just seven months later if film decided to wait until September of two thousand eighteen to have launched the H. One at the same time as the x t three one with ibis and the one without that four hundred dollar launch priced her friends the H. One being launched in nineteen hundred dollars. Us Back in two thousand eighteen and the fifteen hundred dollar price point for the t three back in September two thousand eighteen. That difference would've made a lot more sense and I believe that the X. H. One would have become the hybrid camera choice back then right until now either way better late than ever and the exit. Three has already been an award-winning winning camera. Even without ibis. So it's not like it was a failed camera. The x three is still great. In fact there's a decent deal on the x t right now so if I this isn't your thing or you have a decent collection of stabilized lenses already. Then I would seriously consider picking up an X. T. three right now while supplies last
Uncut Gems, Little Women, Microsoft Project Silica, Instagram Profits.
"As photographers animators or just digital content creators. Many of us may lament. How. Instagram has changed over the years since facebook bought instagram. Back in twenty twelve for one billion dollars which seems like an insane amount of money to pay for an APP. That didn't have a clear monetization model eight years later. We can see how facebook has integrated ads on the most popular photo sharing platform and according to Bloomberg Business. The one billion dollar investment is paying back at least twenty full. According to insider information from Bloomberg INSTAGRAM's total ad revenue from twenty thousand nineteen was twenty billion dollars a quarter of facebook's total ad revenue for that year now just as a comparison YouTube AD revenue for Twenty nineteen was just over fifteen billion dollars and remember youtube shares or profits from that revenue with their content creators. Instagram does not if these numbers are real first of all that is a lot of revenue second if facebook is creating this much revenue from this platform like Youtube. I think there should be financial compensation for content creators who helped generate this much income for facebook. This may be one of the reasons. Why Many Power Users on Instagram Aka influencers have to use outside sponsors to try to make a living to generate income for themselves? And at the same time. It's something that instagram appears to be trying to curb claiming that it makes the platform and these accounts less transparent or in the least Craig contests I think and pay artists that are featuring instagram's main account and perhaps have monthly features to charities that they donate to more evidence that facebook is not reinvesting back into the platform is when CEO instagram. Adam massery in recent posts on instagram claim that the reason why there is no instagram for IPAD was because he lacked resources. You can believe that now. If a company like facebook only uses inscribed as a vehicle to generate profit without ever giving back to the company itself as well as those who helped make the platform successful I think many will gladly jump ship when it competing platform comes around to usurp instagram and become the new leading social media photo and video sharing platform twitch or talk. Anyone last week I talked about the possible end of the Microsoft Platform and the evidence seemed pretty clear with Panasonic joining the like elmont alliance and the Olympics is recent flagship. The OIL MD EM one more threes lukewarm reception due to mediocre specs on their flagship. However there has been some news that appears to a point in the other direction report out of Japan says that in one thousand nine hundred nineteen the microphone. Third System took number one spot in market share with nineteen point eight percent of all digital interchangeable lens camera sold in Japan in two thousand nineteen. So that is very surprising for many of us here in. North America or Europe. But I've found over the years that the Japanese market is not always the best indicator of Global Trans Japan makes way more money selling to the US and the European market versus own domestic market and the domestic market tends to be a bit quirkier odd know for a fact that small compact and as I mentioned quirky cameras sell well in Japan as well as in much of South Asia. Even though the sales of these cameras maybe duds in the rest of the world as an example the Nikon one and the Pentax q system sold very well in Japan but that trend didn't really sit well with the rest of the world that it whoever it is interesting to see that microphone. Thirds is not only doing well in Japan but it is a number one platform in Japan and again. I'm not surprised in the sense that small and compact and sometimes quirky cameras do very well in the domestic market. But another piece of news that made me think about the popularity of the micro third system and something. Maybe I'm missing here. Is that both Olympics and Panasonic made joint media announcement. Recently that young new media edge Venus optics are all joining the microphone. Third Systems Standard Group. Which means they'll that there will be developing products that lenses camera lights and other accessories specific for the microphone third system which is great for those that currently are invested in the microphone thirds cameras finally on the same day that they made this announcement casino. Japan just announced the new Voice Lander knocked-on Sixty millimeter f point. Nine five lands which has a hundred and twenty millimeter coolant. Thirty five millimeter. A very high performance Lens. So perhaps I have to eat my words from last week. About the end of micro four thirds that perhaps there is a future for this smaller format and platform. Which really is a good thing? I've always said that. Competition is good including competing formats however my point from last week still stands true that Sony really needs to update that old twenty megapixel sensor with something more modern backside luminated Sima Sensor with phased attacked autofocus across entire surface and perhaps an upgrade up to twenty four megapixel my pick for photographer. The Week is previously mentioned Wilson Web. Now we've already talked about Webs of work on the movie little woman as the onset photographer as well as shooting these wet plates for the actors you also worked on other notable movies such as marriage story the secret life of Walter Mitty Zoo lander to men in black three. He started his career in the movie industry. So he's an onset photographer as well as a DP director photography and camera operator.
"Hands-On Review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III"
"After spending four days in Costa Rica and continuing shoot with a camera. Simpson Dan I can comfortably say that. I have a good feel for the Olympics. D M One. Mark Three is neither mono- from heaven that many users hoped-for nor is it. The disappointment that some reviewers have complained about. It's a solid semi professional camera for Nimble photography that's only limited by the users imagination. I'll explain my views on today's TVs photography podcast. I hope you enjoy the show so I was lucky enough to be part of a review experience. put on by limps that sent journalists from DP Review Imaging Resource Pedal Pixel and gadget and so forth to Costa Rica to test. The M one mark three. Now the only rule was that we didn't violate the embargo in other words. We didn't talk about the camera before we were supposed to Which was really unfortunate timing for me because they lifted the embargo on Wednesday morning about one. Am and you know. The podcast publishes Tuesday so I just missed it by that much but you know as it turned out. I'm kind of happy about that now because we've all had a chance to look at the various reviews of the em one. Mark Three by the other folks on the bus and now I get a chance to sort of talk about some of the issues that they brought up so it all worked out right. It all worked out. There was a moment on the bus and I was talking with a fellow journalists that I realized how the reviews were going to go for the camera. He was disappointed with the not updated censor As are many reviewers the comparatively low resolution. Lcd is one million dots. The non state of the art of Electronic Viewfinder two point three six million dollars the lackluster performance of AF tracking. And what they said was the relatively high price for a small sensor camera which is one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine dollars. Those are some of the things that I was hearing on the bus and I wasn't hearing a lot of discussion about the other aspects of the camera of which there are many so I'm going okay. So my approach was while I was there. I'm not an apologist for Olympus nor any other brands so I didn't feel the need to defend the camera or defend them or really defend anything. But I did offer a few tips because I have experienced with the mark to with the pen. F with practically every Olympus camera in the Mirror era. I just left it at that. Offered my tips and left it at that. But I decided what I would do is lead off this review addressing those five comments and again. There are things that we have seen in reviews published over the last week. Then we'll get onto the stuff that I like so I guess the way the mood that I'm in today. Is that as a kid? There were nights where I just ate the vegetables I the soggy cauliflower the Stinky Broccoli. You know whatever it happened to be just get it out of the way and then. I could really enjoy the mashed potatoes and hamburger okay. That's what I'm GONNA do today. We're going to have some overcooked cauliflower. I already now before I get into the specifics. I do want to make a general comment. About Olympus the Olympic mindset that I've learned over the years of working with them in their cameras and what they do as in my opinion is they take a very holistic approach to the devices they build and they will live and die by those choices in other words. I never got the feeling that they were looking so much at the individual components the sensor or the electronic viewfinder whatever in isolation in other words them saying we have to. Have you know the top of the Line Electric Viewfinder in our flagship camera? We have to the top of the line. Lcd If the have you know a brand new sensor every time. I never got the impression from them that that's the way that they think the way that I see them working is that they designed the camera and they're looking at the whole camera. They're looking how everything works with each other in the camera and interacts with the system. And what they WANNA do is create an experience that I think is unique to what other manufacturers are making. I don't feel that they are individual component driven as much as they are experienced driven and I sort of sum up the Olympus Approach to photography with what I call the three CS. Now these are mine. Not There's however I will live and die by three CS just like they will buy their cameras and I think there's design. Principles are driven by compact creative and capable. Those are the sort of words that I kind of here here and there from them and that I get when I work with their devices so keeping those three C.'s. In mind compact creative incapable. Let's take a look at some of the complaints or the most common criticisms of the mark. Three at the top of the list is the non updated twenty point. Four megapixel live moss micro four thirds sensor when Olympus debuted this sensor in September two thousand sixteen and that was in the em one mark to is scored the highest according to the EXO mark of any for third sensors Edging out the Panasonic Competition and the twenty point three sensor that they had just launched in the NF earlier in the year so it was the top of the line. Four third sensor in September two thousand sixteen when it came out now that same twenty point four chip is in the M one mark three but the difference is that the mark three has a true pick nine image processor compared to the true pick eight found in the and one mark to and in fact even in the an one x they are true pick eight processors but there's two of them so there's a there's a little horsepower there right but They are true. Pick eight and nine so at the moment the mark three is the only camera has the true pick nine in it by the way the that launched earlier in two thousand sixteen has the true. Pick seven in there now. I can say that after shooting with all three cameras. My view is that it's the processor not the sensor that we should be focusing with the mark three and I talked a little bit about this sort of stuff in last week's podcast. I mean if you think about the evolution of smartphone cameras and where the real progress is made from you know iteration to iteration a lot of that progress in the computing power in the software. Not so much the sensor itself and I think that's where the upgrade is for the mark three now would I love new sensor in the? Em One right yes. Of course I mean we always would. I'm not going to say no to. It is like saying one hundred dollars you know slipped under my front door. Of course I would. I would take that. And when they do come out with a new sensor which I know they will at some point. We'll all put on lamp shades and run around the House with arms waving in the air of course but at the moment. I don't think that this camera the mark three should live and die by this twenty megapixel sensor that has been a proven good censor. I think we should look however at the processor. That's powering all these unique functions that this camera can do so you know. That's my take on the non updated sensor. Yes I would love to have a new sensor. I am not crestfallen because we don't next complaint. The three inch one point zero three seven million dot very angle touchscreen. I heard a little bit of carping about this and you know I will agree that reviewing images on the mark three is not quite as lovely as let's say the Sony a seven Armar Four. That has a three inch. One point. Four four million dot rear. Lcd

Now you know the Japanese seemed to put a real premium on smelling really nice. How else to explain all the different gadgets on display it those shops that use tech to shake the odors out of your shoes and clothing a walk through an urban Japan? Tech shop is always. He's a really interesting experience. I mean they are giant eight stories nine stories ten stories full of toys and cameras and TV's and oddities a lot of oddities so let's talk about the oddities. How do you top the rows and rows of humidifiers in multiple hues of Purple Purple Orange Blue Tan and white all blowing smoke as you walk by? Now that's GonNa get your attention. Yes of course we have humidifiers here too but not in so many colors and not so prominently displayed my favorite the closet from LG that it says shakes the odors out of your retire now that it costs over a thousand dollars is another story and there's so many questions.

How Reno, Nevada, turned its economy into a small powerhouse
"Berlin Wall came down thirty years ago tomorrow. As we've been reporting this week Germany opted to spend a fortune uniting the lagging lagging east with the more dynamic west. What if the United States opted to spend this kind of money nearly ten trillion dollars over thirty years adjusted for population size to unite the strongest strongest and weakest parts of the American economy McKinsey Global Institute this year analyzed which US counties towns and cities will thrive with more technology hitting the the economy and which areas will fall further behind without rethinking or new investment? Today let's get a snapshot from place that's turned itself into a bonafide technology hub in the space of ten years. It's the Reno sparks area in northwestern Nevada once known for a fading Casino Vibe. The region gained nearly fifteen thousand thousand jobs in just the last year. Hillary she is the mayor of Renault. Welcome thank you for having me now. You have land compared to the San Francisco Bay area. You got low rent. You've got three hundred twenty days of sunshine a year. I'd like to say that Reno just got lucky but give us a sense of the ways that you got the boom to come come to you. Well you have to remember. We were the highest in for closures and unemployment during the recession. So kind of hate to say it but really there was only one other way to go. And that's up but I think we really looked at our city really sort of played upon the things that were already here but were sort of not really being highlighted and some of that was arts and culture we have one of the biggest and best events called burning man which brings in seventy million dollars of economic impact so I reached out to them. We did a lot of soul searching with entrepreneurs small businesses businesses. Those things that we really feel that make a difference in Reno and could diversify our culture. So it's been pretty amazing. You know we really can provide a lot of qualities that you know other cities can't and also it's a great environment for companies to be able to grow and and expand here. Let's talk a little rough because not just about like the big Kahuna that they got about fifteen miles west of you. The Tesla Panasonic Battery Factory. That's going to open and next year. There's the Big Apple Facility. There's that giant data facility the biggest one in the world but me you got fourteen thousand eight eight hundred more jobs year over year in that region. I mean that is dramatic you must have done something about fostering and entrepreneurial what we call it ecosystem absolutely and. I think that that's critical. You really want to have that mentality of yes and a culture of yes and how do we get out there. And I think that that's really made a difference by opening up the doors to city hall and also bringing in residence and saying what do you WanNa see in your city. We surely there must be some local tensions though because although your rents are cheap compared to northern California southern California. They're going up. Because of the new businesses moving in law supply and demand and some people are going to find the rising rents a hardship. Sure I think you make make a great point you know. Every city is struggling with affordable housing and mental health issues and addiction issues. And those are all things. Is that cities that are certainly on the rise. have to deal with Because as you know you know housing doesn't pop up overnight and we've reached out to developers and said hey this is the time to build build now because we need housing now and remember in the recession. Many of those developers Were wiped out. Many of them went bankrupt. And we hope that initiative where we put some of those fees those development and building fees on the back end that. They don't have to go allow embargo as much money. So we're constantly working on different ways. that we can solve those issues that you know. They're very complex issues and that's just one little tool Hillary Chevy mayor of Reno Nevada. Thank you so much.
"panasonic" Discussed on This Week in Photo
"Welcome back to another episode of this week in photo. I'm your host Frederik van Johnson as you just heard that intro there. It's a big day for Panasonic Panasonic has released or announced or lifted the embargo on a brand new line of cameras at that puts them squarely in competition with other full full frame sensor players in the space, namely Sony, Nikon's in there now cannons in there, now, etc. So it's increasingly crowded space. But we want to find out today. I decided to get these guys on the horn to find out what it is about this Panasonic system that distinguishes them versus the competitor competitors out there. So on this show, look at all these guys look at all these guys here from all corners of the earth. So I'm going to I'm going to read your names off. And then you guys just sort of introduced yourself. And tell me who you are. And where you're from. And you know, all your basically your elevator pitch. So let's start with you, Jordan. Where are you from? You know, what's what's your what's your Panasonic deal? Yeah. So I am a wedding in commercial filmmaker in Austin, Texas. I run a team of really amazing filmmakers, we have twelve people on our staff, and we're doing about one hundred and fifty weddings a year over here in the Austin area, which is a wonderful area to be shooting. Weddings in Rawson doing a lot of corporate work, specializing kind of in the influence or marketing space, creating YouTube channels for companies who want to become known as as sort of thought leaders in their industry.

And I'm known for my snowflakes in the wintertime, which I'm dealing with right now and the Panasonic mix cameras. Excuse me. It has been a part of that in the last little while. Specifically, the ones I'm excited to talk about that, very cool. All right. Well, we're gonna we're gonna talk about all that in sort of run down the specs list in a second for we do that Matthew Sutherland is on show Matthew, you're a car, man. What is this is tech? Now.

"panasonic" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"Thanks for having me AM radio nineteen seventy-one. It's probably just perfect for me. Actually, I I have to say that day reminds me of my early youth. Around that time. I started recording recording stuff off of radio with like one of those Panasonic you. Remember, those molded almost like one piece of plastic cassette players. Oh, yeah. I think I had one of those actually. We're kind of cool. Right. I mean, they were they were big new thing. I mean that was exciting small, you know, no more eight tracks. Yeah. Oh, well, you know what I never had an eight track. And I have to say I mean, I am of the age that should have. But you know, I was too cool for that. I went directly from final two cassettes. That's how that's how forward thinking. I was. All right. Well, okay. That's pretty impressive. Let's let's get to. I think my folks had the attracts. I probably just went to 'cause that's still. So did we start with this? Because it seems to me there's there's a fascinating dynamic. That's that's happening in terms of these house races. Right. And let's just in folks, you're gonna hear this refrain. I think multiple times going forward. But. They're the Democrats need twenty three seats. There are you know, in my numbers are are little bit loosey goosey here, but about fifteen of these seats, or so are you know, districts that Clinton one, but, you know, suburban Republican voters on some level or with a propensity of vote Republican they have a Republican congress person. And they seem to be those are raises that seem to be more of a lock for the democrat lock may be too strong a word, but certainly Democrats up and then there's like another like two dozen maybe even more thirty seats that. Are you know, it's nobody can call there..
"panasonic" Discussed on The No Film School Podcast
"Not going to be able to use those lenses with the new bigger as one, and that's when are so like canon and Nikon users who have a mirrored canon or Nikon are going to be able to move over pretty easily to their new merely cameras. But if you're like Ardia Panasonic user, it's going to be a big, ask to upgrade your camera and all your glass all at once. It's really exciting that at this point we have all the major manufacturers except Fuji film having full frame merely. But this particular Panasonic is more likely to be for like new Panasonic users. And I suspect they're still going to be a lot of people who keep their JJ. Five. And if there's ever g six around, hopefully this also means that we're going to be seeing a full frame Farouq ham. Panasonic is super popular at the high end. But unlike Sony and Alexa and read, Panasonic doesn't have a full frame like cinema camera yet. So hopefully this means since they designed and manufactured the censor themselves, we will see eight full frame VERA Cam sometime soon. We don't have any inside word on that. This is just me. Is there like term for like Spek you pushing? I'm speculating and also trying to push them into doing it. Prac- nast to leading truck Nesta bullying. I'm not trying to you Panasonic into a full frame cinema camera, but I'm trying to like predict it often happens, predictable, sting anyway, Fuji also rolled out a new medium format camera for only forty five hundred dollars, which is interesting. It seems like food film films, like we're not going to do full framework gonna go straight to medium format which is even bigger, which is like bull choice foods. Film and forty. Five hundred dollars is not that much more than like this Oni full frame merely where when they came out a couple years ago, but this is really not aimed at filmmakers. It only does tend to video, although end is only open to a four, which isn't a big deal for stills people because you can always use a longer shutter. But obviously in motion, we can't. So we like lenses that opened like two or a one four. And so it doesn't seem like who'd you film medium format is really targeted at us, but I bet soon. They'll be like a food g. medium format for filmmakers. That's not me predictable predictably ING. That's just a guess. Next up gopro came out with their new hero seven, which is just to hear six better in camera stabilization. It's like the same chip in the same sensor. It's the same anything, and then they stopped offering the session, but they have better stabilization like, look, the stabilization tests, cool. But for four hundred dollars in a space that's like getting really competitive, and we're getting their lunch even by like low cost name action. Cameras that cost a quarter of the price. I think gopro like longtime fans and loyalist hoping more from the company that basically created the action Cam marketplace. This feels like treading water, and it's gonna be interesting to see if they were treading water because the team is viciously working on an amazing upgrade for the hero eight, or is it just because they don't have an are indeed team anymore remains to be seen if you're really looking for cool in camera, stabilization, check the hero, seven out otherwise, the hero. Six is basically the same thing last up, small HD's, no shipping. They're very cool. Little focus led monitors. I announce back at any be the shipping was a late because there's a fire at the small HD facility. It wasn't in there like warehouse. It was like the warehouse next door, but smoke it spreads. It causes damage. It slowed things down as far as I know. I don't think anyone was injured, but now they're back to pace and we're super excited. Have these monitors out in the field specifically because lettuce, the first tech that finally looks right. So if you..
"panasonic" Discussed on The HT Guys
"I don't eat all the cables running. Mine works well. Yeah, I magazine is totally pointless and you're saying, you know what? It's not worth it to me to have this system in there because I'm just not gonna use it. I wouldn't use it that much either. See, there's not much here for audio. This just a few companies that had largely audio demos, Martin Logan, golden era MB l. totem, but it was more of a video show, I guess this year than an audio show it what I went those couple years I went, they were there was a lot of audio, even receiver companies Panasonic, not Panasonic, pioneer JVC. They would be there quite a bit in a ton of speaker companies. It's interesting. Maybe the the receiver companies are just going to say, you know, it's EES for us. Now we're not gonna support. Both of them, it'd be it did say a few companies JBL and Sony put together some really dramatic home theater demos of built the whole home theater so they may have been showing off JBL obviously, shown up some of their audio gear, but nothing that was as much in the forefront as video, and then some other odds and ends bits and pieces. Some company called black dove streams moving artwork to your display when. You're not watching TV. So I guess you can turn any TV into that Samsung frame TV with this black dove technology that think from what I was reading is natively integrated with a bunch of different manufacturers. Probably black dove app that you can turn on as long as you have description, it'll just stream artwork to your TV if that's what you want, does what you're into. That's it. I mean, you find anything else kind of super sexy coming out of, well, if we do if we miss something from CD, ah, that you thought super cool, super sexy, and we're gonna continue to look see if there's nothing else out there that we miss. We're gonna talk about it next week, but let us know, send us an Email, but coming up at the webpage the there's still time. We'll talk about more stuff if we missed it. Sounds good. Awesome. And that does it for today's show. Thank you, everyone for listening. We appreciate it.
