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 This time we look at PhotoPlus Expo, Mark Mann, the dSLR, accessories and group unpublished works.

  • LensRentals has a short list of Latest Camera and Lens Announcements From PhotoPlus Expo 2017 & More. And Luminous Landscape's Kevin Raber did videos for his Photo Plus 2017 Show Report behind LuLa's paywall.
  • Scottish photographer Mark Mann focuses on Shooting Stardom. Celebrities, that is. It doesn't always go smoothly. "I know pretty immediately if something's wrong," he says. "The trick is to fix it without anybody else knowing."
  • Derrick Story insists The Reports of dSLR Deaths Are Greatly Exaggerated. "People want pictures to document their lives. Smartphones are the perfect devices to do so," he admits. "But that doesn't mean that I'm giving up my other cameras as a result. I'm not carrying around a toolbox with only a screwdriver in it."
  • Matty Graham and Matt Golowczynski have collected The 37 Best Photography Accessories in 2017 "from the humble memory card right through to super-sturdy tripods."
  • Carolyn Wright reports Robert J. Kasunic, the associate register of copyrights and director of registration policy and practice, says the Group Unpublished Works, which would be limited to five under proposed legislation, "would not be applicable to photographers." For photographers "the number we proposed for a group of unpublished photographs was 750." Maybe they should make that clearer to everyone.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for health coverage under the American Health Care Act from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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