1 September 2017

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 Harvey photos, Hans Eijkelboom, rental gear destroyed by the eclipse, Wong on the new Olympus OM-D and a LaserSoft discount.

  • Alan Taylor presents 31 of the Latest Photos of Harvey's Disastrous Flooding. You can text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10 via the Red Cross. The New York Times has published Where to Donate to Harvey Victims (And How to Avoid Scams) for other options to pitch in.
  • Rian Dundon discusses Hans Eijkelboom's Genius Photo Experiment, photographing people from the same spot for two hours proving "the unhindered flow of global commerce has left us all wearing the same thing."
  • Zach Sutton does an inventory of Rental Camera Gear Destroyed by the Solar Eclipse of 2017. Not pretty (but you were warned).
  • Robin Wong, who owns the previous model, reflects on his experience with The 2017 Olympus E-M10 Mark III. He found it something of a big meh, calling it "a reliable Micro Four Thirds camera that can deliver great results, but it does not particularly excel at anything." Missing wireless TTL flash support, no vertical grip, no improvement in image quality, the old 16-Mp sensor instead of the new 20-Mp sensor, even the menu system disappointed him.
  • LaserSoft is offering 30 percent off its software and IT8 targets during its Labor Day Sale now through Sept. 4

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