There’s another social network making waves and you may have heard about it. The darling platform of late is called Vero and there has been a recent influx of photographers moving over for the prospect of no ads and no algorithms. Vero claims that their business model will be built atop a subscription fee (beyond the first million users, who get free lifetime membership). Time will tell what happens here and we share our experiences using the app.

Our second topic brings to fruition a prediction that we made way back in Episode 007. In that episode, I predicted that we’ll start to see more camera technology incorporating intelligence to aid photographers. Sure enough, Canon has answered the charge. All that and a fresh batch of “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” to wrap this up.
