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 London Kodachromes, Lloyd Chambers, investing, syncing iPhoto libraries, switching to the Panasonic G9, TourBox, Z 7 banding again and Mike Johnston.

  • 1949: London Kodachromes presents just four images by Chalmers Butterfield just after the war when Kodachrome was "elusive" in Britain. But each one begins a story you can get lost in.
  • After shooting with a Nikon Z 7 a while, Lloyd Chambers shares some tips on Configuring the Nikon Z7 before shooting with the Canon EOS R.
  • In 'Investing' in Equipment, Ming Thein writes, "My aim is, by the end of this article, you'll suffer from far less frequent confusion and buyers' remorse (if any at all)." Unless you're a pro, that is, because "then things get significantly more complicated."
  • John Gruber suggests Sometimes It's Better to Just Start Over With iCloud Photo Library Syncing. Worked for him.
  • Kirk Tuck decides to pack Some New Gear that lightens his load for "dinky commuter jets which lack overhead compartment space." Out with the Nikon D800s and in with a couple of Panasonic G9 bodies and Olympus Pro lenses. And a Think Tank Photo backpack to protect everything.
  • The $89 TourBox, a Kickstarter project, is a hardware controller for Photoshop, Lightroom and other image processing software. "It is specifically designed for photographers and designers who want to improve their work efficiency and experience a new state-of-the-art method for editing content," the designers explain.
  • In Nikon Z7 Banding Revisited, Jim Kasson finally reproduces the banding reported elsewhere when he shoots "a bright object in the right part of the frame." The plot thickens.
  • In Blog Note (Eye Op), Mike Johnston advises he's going to have to shutter The Online Photographer briefly to have eye surgery "in the next few months." We're sure you join us in wishing him well. As he says, "Of course, it's good for a fellow who makes his living looking to be able to see."

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