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 metalenses, a copyright infringement email, a free Harold Davis webinar and rebates from both Adorama and B&H.

  • Do lenses have to look like, well, lenses? Or can they be flattened? Metalenses are actually flat. And don't have to be polished, either. Instead, microscopic titanium dioxide towers focus light in the thin planar lenses.
  • Was the copyright infringement email from Getty Images or a phishing scam? Bizible's Aaron Bird wanted to know before paying for his company's "inadvertent use" of a Getty image. But it wasn't easy to find out.
  • Travel Photography with Harold Davis and Topaz is a free webinar on Tuesday, June 14 at 2 p.m. Pacific Time in which Davis will explain his approach to travel photography using Topaz software. Registration required.
  • Yes, Adorama has some nice Nikon instant lens rebates in June. But B&H is pushing deals from dozens of companies, including Adobe, Datacolor, X-Rite, DxO, Wacom, Canon, Phase One, Fujifilm, Sony, Sigma, Panasonic, Pentax ... well, you get the idea.

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