QUESTIONS

1. Why does the camera add 10 pounds?! If you meet people who’ve been on tv they do genuinely look smaller. What’s the reality of lenses etc? — Andrew Bailey

2. Hi Ewen 18 months ago I bought a Canon 550 which I use for both video and stills mainly in the summer when I spend several months in the South of France. My question is, I am using the kit lens (18-55) and after listening to your podcast this week I wonder if I should buy a 50mm prime lens or would you make any other suggestions bearing in mind it is not a full size sensor. I shoot landscapes and portrait and also enjoy taking low light. Great podcast, keep up the good work. John from Chesterfield
