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 Santa Rosa fires, Zach Gross, how to zoom in Photoshop and the Sony a7RII's finder lag.

  • Derrick Story provides an Update on TDS Podcast, Santa Rosa Fires, beginning, "At the moment, our family is safe on a ridge in Bennett Valley." But the fires are still not out. "We don't know about our place yet. Yesterday, we stood outside the border of the evacuation zone, patrolled by officers and looked at the treeline and the roofs of places we knew," he writes. With no Internet other than through his iPhone, he won't be podcasting this week.
  • In The New York Times Digital, Heidi Volpe interviews editor Sara Barrett and photographer Zach Gross on his assignment to blend multiple exposures in color at Penn Station.
  • Continuing her Photoshop tips series, Julieanne Kost shows Three Ways to Quickly Zoom in Photoshop CC (actually four):
  • In Sony a7RII Finder Lag, Jim Kasson makes the distinction between shutter lag and finder lag. His tests show "the image on the LCD panel is 40 msec behind what's actually going on."

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