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 Hogan's big deals in camera technology, a Sony A7 II teardown, shooting the moon and circular polarizers.

  • In Big Deals Versus Small Deals, Thom Hogan lists the small improvements camera makers are pushing versus six potential game changers that, after all, make him an optimist.
  • Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz take the Sony A7 II apart. The weatherizing wasn't complete and the internals more complex than the A7r but the tripod mount is more secure, making those camera strap tripod attachments safer.
  • Los Angeles photographer Paul Roa has been Shooting the Moon once a month by LAX, capturing planes silhouetted against the rising rock. And he's not alone.
  • Jack Howard explains Why Circular Polarizers Still Matter with side-by-side comparison shots. On our sunny hikes, we wear sunglasses and almost always put a circular polarizer on our lens. It's shades for your camera.

More to come...
