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 Ed Reed, that $2,000 Olympus M1 Mark II, advanced iPhone camera controls and the MacBook Pro and Thunderbolt 3.

  • In Thirty Years, Five Mayors, One Photographer, Ed Reed reflects on decades of chasing Mayors Ed Koch, David Dinkins, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio around town (with photos to prove it).
  • Thom Hogan calculates The Price of Enthusiasm in light of the Olympus M1 Mark II's $2,000 sticker, which is higher than some dSLRs. "Suffice it to say that the camera companies have mostly decided to take the route that the HiFi industry did when CDs and eventually MP3s began really crushing them: go upscale," he writes.
  • In Seven Advanced iPhone Camera Controls For dSLR Photographers , Rob DePaolo covers Exposure, Focus, Shutter Speed, ISO, Depth of Field, White Balance and Zoom provided by both the free Camera app (sometimes) and third-party apps. Conspicuously missing: Aperture, which is fixed. So, no, Rob, you can't "do it all with the camera on your iPhone." But there is some manual control to explore.
  • Ed Feishman is busy Explaining Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and Everything In Between as Plugable reports Apple's new MacBook Pro is not compatible with early Thunderbolt 3 implementations.

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