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 a new photo series at the Atlantic, how to move to a Sony mirrorless system, how to travel with your camera and how to treat your memory cards.

  • With Americans at Work: Elementary and High-School Educators in Chicago, Alan Taylor launches "a new series of photo essays at the Atlantic titled Americans at Work. Every Saturday, until the end of February, we will be presenting a new original story portraying the breadth and variety of the landscape of work in America today." Emily Ann Epstein was also involved presenting the first 36 images in the series.
  • In Things to Know When Transitioning to Sony Mirrorless Camera Systems , Zach Sutton writes, "The number one reason for you to consider switching to Sony is that it's primarily from the future. The tech within the systems is so incredibly far ahead of Canon and Nikon, giving you more power to do what you love."
  • Thom Hogan (who does it a lot) has some advice about Traveling with Cameras. And cleaning them. We can second everything on the travel list but particularly applaud the idea of making a packing list. If nothing else it's a great memory aid for leaving with everything you need and returning with everything you left with.
  • In Why You Should Not Delete Images on Your Memory Card Using Your Camera, Jeff Cable (who once upon a time was the director of marketing for Lexar) offers a few simple tips to avoid courting disaster with your memory cards.

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