We got to have a surprise guest on the planet5D LIVE show the other day – Dan Chung (dslrnewsshooter.com) – a reporter for places like the Guardian.co.uk and of course we talked about the controversy surrounding his reporting of the events. We again thank Dan for taking time to have a conversion and for engaging the news viewers!
For those of you who want to check out the controversy and to read the many many comments that came in on our first post, please read here. You can also see both versions of the video there.
Here again is the original report from Japan by Dan:
Images from what remains of the town of Shintona in Miyagi prefecture, one of the areas worst affected by the Tsunami.

Some of the videos we mentioned in the interview:
By Dan Chung/The Guardian
Chinese security forces are keeping a close eye on Beijing's Olympic sites in the run up to August's games.
This short film of the Olympic stadium in Beijing was shot on the day it opened to international media for the first time. Filmed and edited by guardian.co.uk staff photographer Dan Chung.
See guardian.co.uk/world/china for more China coverage by the Guardian.
Lastly – tho we didn't talk about this during the conversation, here's another news story Dan did with slider moves that nobody seemed to complain about:
Residents of Tucson gather outside the hospital where the wounded survivors of Saturday's assassination attempt on Gabrielle Giffords joined a moment of silence called by President Obama. Some blame the increasingly belligerent tone of America's political discourse for the shooting. Others simply wondered what it meant for their country. Video by Dan Chung.
