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 Max Desfor, Lee Friedlander, Nikkor astigmatism and the new Lightroom mobile for Android.

  • Alan Taylor presents 41 images from The Extraordinary Career of the Photojournalist Max Desfor. The Associated Press photographer won the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in 1951 for his extensive and powerful coverage of the Korean War. The selection spans the years 1938 to 1983.
  • Maurice Berger takes a look at 14 of Lee Friedlander's Overlooked Civil Rights Photos, which, he writes, "highlight the individuality and humanity of its participants and their endurance, voice and visibility in an unjust society."
  • In his explanatory piece About Lens Reviews, Thom Hogan speculates on why Nikkors don't score well on test charts but "in the field in actual use, those Nikkors often look as good if not better." He discussed this with Roger Cicala and they wondered if Nikon is designing to a different standard that "must have a lot to do with astigmatism."
  • Colby Brown introduces the free New Lightroom Mobile for Android, which he's been testing for a few weeks. The built-in camera app captures DNG files so you can edit Raw data.

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