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 South Africa, Jean-Vincent Simonet, toy photography, the Nikon Z 7 and Costco.

  • In Robin Visits South Africa, Robin Wong publishes the first part of his report on his trip to South Africa with a group of Olympus Visionaries from Asia Pacific. This piece focuses on the scenery with close-ups of wild animals coming next.
  • Marigold Warner presents a few of Jean-Vincent Simonet's Psychedelic Images of Tokyo. The Swiss photographer prints on plastic paper then washes the photograph with chemicals to create the warped images. There must be a Photoshop action for that.
  • Dave DeBaeremaeker explains the The Joy of Toy Photography. Not toy cameras but toys as subjects. He compares a studio shoot of a live model with a shot of a six-inch Hulk action figure using a new smoke generator.
  • Jim Kasson has a couple new insights into the Nikon Z 7, including Nikon Z7 Flash Synch Speeds and More LED Banding With the Nikon Z7. He has a recommendation for syncing but that banding can be fatal with certain lamps.
  • Leif Johnson reports Costco Now Sells Macs Online, With Discounts Ranging From $50 to $200. With a limit of two per customer for the MacBook Air ($999). Some options include AppleCare. And you can pick up in-store for most models.

We would be remiss if we didn't point you to our 2016 article How To Make An HTML Email Holiday Card, which we have been busy perusing ourselves this week. And there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
