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 the 10th anniversary of the iPhone for one photographer, how easy it is to make photographs, a Sony a6300 video setup and what to do with wet gear.

"During my reporting in Las Vegas last week," he writes, "I would capture the image with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, send the images to my iPhone 6S via WiFi, and share them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter from hotel lobbies, Starbucks, and yes, the occasional casino lounge."
  • Jim Kasson asks, Is It Now Easier to Be a Photographer? "There is an unbelievable amount of dreck out there," he acknowledges. Is it so easy to get a nice image, he wonders, that people don't push themselves?
  • As he explains in the video below, Kirk Tuck tried out his new Sony a6300 video setup last weekend. The story has shots of the setup and the clip show the effect:

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