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. This time we look at that moon this morning, Bhutan, a Hogan sale, the Hasselblad X1D, Magnaframe and Frederick Douglass.

  • Derrick Story captured this morning's Moonset Over Santa Rosa at 1/15 second, f1.3 and ISO 1600. But there was a hitch. He forgot to shoot Raw.
  • Alan Taylor posts 28 intriguing Photos From a Slowly Modernizing Bhutan. Dams and smartphones find a place in "a deeply traditional nation."
  • Thom Hogan is having a Spring Cleaning sale of his personal gear, including Peak Design bags and memory cards.
  • Ming Thein has begun a long-term review of the Hasselblad X1D admitting "I work for Hasselblad." The images accompanying the text illustrate the surprising versatility of the system.
  • Magnaframe is a set of six small frames, three of which cling magnetically to a master frame that screws into your wall (with a built-in level). Formats available include Polaroid, Instax, Instagram and 4x4, each for $49.95.
  • The Eastman Museum will present Frederick Douglass and His Photographic Legacy Feb. 10 at noon, a free lecture on "he great American's contribution to the history of photography as well as the implications of collecting and preserving photographs of and documents authored by people of color." The occasion is the 200th anniversary of Douglass's birth.

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