Jared somehow became BFFs with Ken Rockwell during the trip as well. Meanwhile, we discuss photo news this week including Sigma’s new lenses and their new Sony Art lineup, Tiffen’s new gas monopod, Canon’s new M50 that shoots 4K along with their weird but awesome new automatic bounce flash.

We then wrap up the show with another Flying Solo questions & answers segment. Thanks for watching!
