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 lava, smog, Obscura 2 and adapter flange distance errors.

  • In The Lava Meets the Sea, Alan Taylor presents 30 images of Kilauea's march to the sea. "Over the weekend at least two of the lava flows reached the shore, sending up billowing plumes of steam and generating 'laze,' or lava haze, a dangerous mix of hydrochloric acid, steam and volcanic glass particles," he writes.
  • Rian Dundon has collected a few photos of LA's Mid-Century Smog, which earned the city the nickname of Smell-A.
  • Ben McCarthy has released the $4.99 Obscura 2 iOS phone app with new filters, metadata viewer, and one-handed UI. In-app purchases include Analogue and Black & White film filters at $1.99 each.
  • Kim Kasson bought a tool to measure Adapter Flange Distance Errors which cause errors in your camera's distance and depth of field. Kipon and Vello adapters scored best.

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