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 James Pomerantz, the Sony FE 100mm f2.8, the CCS StrapShot and FilmLab.

  • A Successful Artist is a series of self portraits by photographer James Pomerantz. He visited various clothing stores with this pitch: "I need to look like a successful artist. Could you pick out something suitable?" Surprise ending.
  • Joey Miller takes A Look at the New Sony FE 100mm f2.8 STM GM OSS With Smooth Trans Focus. Includes sample photos, a thorough explanation of what an apodization filter does and why the f2.8 lens starts only at f5.6.
  • Cotton Carrier Camera Systems has adapted its unique mounting system (which we have found very convenient) to a holster strap that Velcros to a backpack strap. The $79 CCS StrapShot can also be looped onto a belt:
  • FilmLab is Abe Fettig's Kickstarter project for an Android and iOS app that enables a smartphone to view, scan and share analog film and slides.

We've also updated our Calendar with a new listing yesterday and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
