Chris is hearing murmurs that Nikon is hyping a revival of the Nikon F3 as a full frame digital SLR. Leo also says that the Sony QX10 is a crazy looking camera/lens thingy for a smartphone. It shows that camera makers are starting to think outside the box. Chris says he's heard some mixed reviews of it.

This week's myth buster is Good and bad Histograms. Chris says that a histogram can be used to calculate the brightness in the image and allows you to get really accurate and balanced. So there really isn't a good or bad histogram. Additionally, a histogram can also be affected by ambient brightness (like in snow) or darkness (like in low light). This can cause cameras to get their exposure wrong. That's why they have exposure compensation settings.

Don't forget our current assignment - "Silent". Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "Silent" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "silent" as well! If Chris likes it, it could end up on our next photo segment!
