In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at choosing a Safari camera, scouting a location (Part 2), the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Sigma's mount swap program.

  • Thom Hogan is On Safari Four Years Later and looking over his gear options, including which dSLR and which mirrorless to take. Too bad the Panasonic GX7 won't be available, but his commentary on it is worth a peek.
  • Strobist David Hobby concludes his latest assignment with Scout and a Shoot Pt. 2, showing how he lit a dreadful fluorescent office environment.
  • The Luminous Landscape is Anticipating the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, "which shoots high dynamic range Raw video and takes a vast array of lenses, including all current Micro Four Thirds lenses with active aperture control, and older Four Thirds lenses via a standard adaptor." The anticipation may shortly be at an end.
  • After Sept. 2, Sigma's Jack Howard blogged, "owners of lenses in Sigma's line of the Sigma Global Vision lenses: Art, Sports, and Contemporary, can now send their lenses in for a mount swap."

More to come...
