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 Lost Rolls America, the Hasselblad X1D, lighting a diner and Michael Zagaris.

  • Jonathan Blaustein interviews Ron Haviv about his partnership with PhotoShelter and Fujifilm to go on A Mission to Rescue Forgotten Photos. Haviv invites you to send your unprocessed 35mm, 120mm or E6 film to Lost Rolls America for free development and scanning thereby rescuing these unseen images.
  • In Hasselblad X1D -- Where Is It?, Kevin Raber interviews Hasselblads CEO Perry Osting and X1D product manager Ove Bengtsson about the delay in shipping the camera, which finally ended on Dec. 12. Perry apologized for the company's lack of transparency.
  • In An Alien at the Diner, Joe McNally and Daniel Norton, Adorama's resident lighting guru and philosopher of the photons, to turn a drab diner scene into an ominous venue by lighting it with surgical precision. "In fact, all the lights on the set had some sort of attachment, like a grid, some tape or some type of gel," McNally writes.
  • Chris Preovolos interviews Michael Zagaris about Total Excess, his new book of 200 images of the rock music scene in San Francisco in the 1970s and 1980s, including The Clash, Grateful Dead, Blondie, Sex Pistols, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Patti Smith, Led Zeppelin and others.

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