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 Meteora, squatting, ring lights and the OVF vs. EVF battle.

  • Alan Taylor launches a "semi-regular Travel Monday series" with A Photo Trip to Meteora, Greece. "Monks and hermits have been finding refuge in this unique rock formation for more than a thousand years," he writes. Just don't look down.
  • In Families Are Squatting Abandoned Homes Just to Survive, McNair Evans illustrates Bryan Schatz's story of a mother of four's attempt to house her family. Evans used a Canon Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE and Zeiss Distagon T* 2/25 ZE to take a variety of difficult shots.
  • Robin Wong conduct a few Experiments With Ring Lights and Insects. Like the Flexi macro flash we reviewed last month, power is an issue. And so was the reflection of the ring light in the bugs' eyes.
  • Kirk Tuck considers the OVF Versus EVF debate, turning it into a dSLR vs. Mirrorless discussion.

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