2021 Wrap Party: Photo Industry Review
It’s our year-end review of photography! Ryan Hill is talking with Lensrentals Quality Control Manager Joey Miller and Blog Editor Zach Sutton about their favorite gear of the year, what they’re looking forward to next year, and what photographers inspired them in 2021. Before we get to all of that though, Roger wasn’t able to join for the full conversation so he recorded an annual report of sorts, sharing his insights on the year in optics.
There was a lot to cover in the photography world in 2021, from new launches of flagships like the Canon R3, and the soon-to-be-released Nikon Z9, to talks of unionization for many people in various industries in photography. Ryan, Joey, and Zach sit down and talk about some of their favorite products for 2021, where they think the industry is heading as a whole, and where they find their inspiration in a year that is considered by many as a rebound year for the industry as a whole. What was the most important thing you learned about the photography industry this year? What were some of your favorite products and announcements this year? Feel free to start a discussion in the comments below, and listen in as some of our resident photographers talk about what brought them the most joy this year.
