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 volcanic ghost villages, 10-bit channel support in Photoshop, Day One and the Sony A7R II.

  • In Volcanic Ghost Villages in Indonesia, Alan Taylor showcases 14 images by AP photographer Binsar Bakkara who "recently visited the newly-formed ghost villages of Guru Kinayan, Simacem, Kuta Gugung, and Sibintun, documenting the crumbling houses and personal belongings left behind."
  • Lloyd Chambers digs into the new Photoshop preferences to find 10-bit channel support but there's a catch. It's only available when the GPU is enabled and that causes blurred images on his display. Our GPU, fortunately, isn't up to blurring our images.
  • Derrick Story raves about Day One -- A Journal App for Photographers for iOS. "I can attach an image to the top of the journal entry," he writes, "write the information that I want to retain, and even have the weather, location, and date automatically recorded."
  • In The Sony Mirrorless A7R II Camera Review You've Been Waiting For, Terry White reviews his new system after putting it through its paces. "I had to return it when the review period ended and I do miss it," he admits. But no, he wouldn't buy one. Not until....

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
