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 Dawoud Bey, the Indonesian tsunami, Shanghai, Christmas morning, the Zeiss ZX1, two Micro Four Thirds zooms, Ming Thein's lessons, Darktable and a copyright twist.

  • In Death Match, Kirk Tuck compares the sharper Olympus 12-100mm f4.0 Pro zoom to the Panasonic/Leica 12-60 f2.8-4.0 (which he prefers for portraits). "The difference between the two lenses is really very subjective," he admits, leaving both alive to fight it out another day.
  • Ming Thein lists The Most Important Things in Photography he's learned in 17 years of shooting.
  • Darktable 2.6.0 has been released with three new modules (retouch, filmic and duplicate handling), logarithmic controls for curves and more.
  • Photo Attorney Carolyn Wright reports Bloggers May Be Able to Register Copyrights to Blog Entries. "To qualify for this option, each work must contain at least 100 but no more than 17,500 words," she notes.

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