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 diversity in photojournalism, the Sony RX10 IV, sensor battles and a free SD card formatter.

  • In Diversity in Photojournalism: 'Talk Is Cheap', James Estrin and David Gonzalez talk to photographer Brent Lewis about Diversify Photo, a new organization devoted to "creating a place where people can come and see photographers of color, to know they are out there and they exist and to provide editors with the ability to find people not in their circles."
  • Kirk Tuck takes a look at Sony's New RX10 Camera, "a product that makes sense and one for which I'll gladly line up to hemorrhage cash," he writes.
  • In The Sensor Battles Continue, Thom Hogan looks at what Canon and Nikon are doing (and not doing) with Sony Semiconductor. You can throw Phase One into that mix today, too.
  • The SD Association has release v5.0 of its SD Memory Card Formatter (which is the first to run on macOS, BTW). We've always recommended formatting your SD card in your camera instead of your computer because your camera isn't very smart about this sort of thing. The Association thinks it's got a better approach, formatting the card for maximum compatibility across all devices. One thing we like about it is that it's free.

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