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 dust, glass, imperfection and disappointment.

  • In This is Your (Well Our) Camera at Burning Man, Roger Cicala writes, "Every year we tell people to take cheap or disposable equipment to Burning Man. It's probably going to be ruined and you aren't going to like the charges. And every year people say, 'It's just dust.'"
  • Derrick Story admits Canon EOS M5 -- I Couldn't Even if I Wanted To. "I have a substantial investment in Olympus and Panasonic optics that I truly like," he writes. "Those zooms and primes are compact, sharp and capture great images. And at this point in the game, it just doesn't make sense to hand those over for a limited selection of Canon M lenses."
  • In Embracing Imperfection: A Conversation with Photographer Richard Learoyd, Tristan Bravinder quotes the large-scale photographer, "A photograph should have the ability to communicate a sense of humanity and it should have an internal narrative that allows you to walk away with a question or two in your mind."
  • In Communicating, Programmable, Modular, Thom Hogan prepares you for photokina later this month by putting the expected mirrorless announcements in the same bag as dSLR tech. Which is nothing to get excited about, he opines.

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