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 the Sony FE 50mm f1.8, the Mercury transit time-lapse video, iPad Pro photography workflow and Vivian Maier.

  • In Sony FE 50mm f1.8 MTF and Consistency, Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz find the Sony 50mm f1.8 "very consistent" from copy to copy. Consistency has been a problem with Sony's FE lenses, they note, but this 50mm ranks with the standard setting Canon 50mm f1.8.
  • Just released a few minutes ago, NASA's time-lapse of the Mercury transit across the sun yesterday dramatically covers the seven-and-a-half hour event (which occurs once every 13 years) in just two minutes.
  • In Building a New Photography Workflow with the iPad Pro, Drew Coffman confesses to developing "a new way of processing photos using only the device I love -- the iPad Pro -- but it's been a challenge."
  • Kevin Purcell provides A Clarification of the Vivian Maier Case as the terms of the agreement between the owners of her images and the heirs who hold their copyright are unsealed by a judge. Purcell clarifies the copyright, probate and contract law involved in this tangled web.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
