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 body-based flash compensation, more MTF charts from LensRentals, August vacations and stock photography scams.

  • Moose Peterson discusses Flash Comp In the Body, using both the body and flash compensation settings to extend flash exposure compensation. Smart stuff, but includes a warning.
  • In The Zeiss FE Batis 25mm f2.8 & Loxia 35mm f2 Lens MTF Charts, Roger Cicala (with Aaron Closz and Markus Ruthacker) explains what's different about his tests and Zeiss's.
  • Like Thom Hogan, Kirk Tuck has decided to take August off. We have no idea what this fixation with vacations is all about.
  • Fortunately Greenberg and Reznicki are taking up the slack with When Less Is More In Stock Photography. "Not a day has gone by in decades (including today) that Ed's office is not in the process of suing or collecting funds for photographers whose money and/or images are being wrongfully withheld by a stock agency somewhere in the world," they write before suggesting you market your stock images yourself.

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