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 Affinity Photo iPad, the IoSafe 1515+, dealers' demise and the Sony 50mm f1.8 FE.

  • Affinity Photo is at WWDC this week with a preview of Affinity Photo iPad. "We've still got a load of work to do on it," they admit, "but we thought you might like a little peek ;)." Here it is:
  • After six months with it, Moose Peterson really likes his IoSafe 1515+ network storage device powered by Synology. "The beauty is I can access all my photos from anywhere in the world if a client needs them," he writes. And clients do, he's found.
  • Camera dealers are not sitting on the sidewalk in front of their stores with cardboard signs asking for spare change. But in Dealers Need Help, Thom Hogan worries it might.
  • Kirk Tuck patronizes Precision Camera in Austin and dropped in to try the $250 Sony 50mm f1.8 FE on his Sony A7 II. Even in the brightly-lit store, the lens kept trying to find focus. "I can't see anyone being happy with that level of AF performance regardless of how good or bad the lens is optically," he writes.

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