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 Jim Kenny, a fire, the Sony A7/A7R and the Nikon Df.

  • In Jim Kenney, Picture Editor, Joe McNally pays tribute to the former Newsweek photo editor.
  • George Jardine heard someone yell, "Fire!" and "quickly packed up a laptop, a backup hard drive containing my photo libraries, some cash, one camera and a few odds and ends." The fire wasn't in his building, fortunately, but in Before and After... he shows why that was little consolation.
  • The Sony A7/A7R has Michael Reichmann popping his Leica glass on it, made Roger Cicala wonder and annoyed Lloyd Chambers with its shutter vibration.
  • In Thom Hogan'a review of the Nikon Df, he observes, "The Sony A7's are extremely modern designs (mirrorless, WiFi enabled, programmable, needing new lenses) while the Nikon Df is an absolute homage to the past (film like design, lots of dials, any configurability is mostly hidden, and it can directly use lenses that date back to the Eisenhower administration)."

More to come...
