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 climate-change protests, Cactus Blossoms, Perth, multi-shot high-resolution mode, Canon G10 shots, a Nikon Z issue, making a photo zine and Peak Design customer service.

  • Alan Taylor presents 25 photos of Climate-Change Protests Around the World. "Most of the movement has taken place in Europe, is largely student-led and was inspired by the Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg, who has been speaking out and demanding action from leaders since last year," he writes.
  • Jacob Blickenstaff is On the Road With the Cactus Blossoms in the fifth photo essay in his On the Road series that explores the creative lives of notable musicians, on stage and off.
  • In Shutter Therapy in Perth, Robin Wong posts the first part of a working trip to his old haunt where he first caught the photo bug. It all looks different to him now. "I think Perth is a wonderful playground for street photography," he writes. And proves it.
  • Lloyd Chambers has a few Thoughts on Ultra High Resolution Imagery With Multi-Shot High-Res Mode. Cameras without a multi-shot high-resolution mode "are already obsolete given the huge quality gap," for example.
  • OTOH, Kirk Tuck takes his newly-acquired Canon G10 for a walk. Current Raw processing makes a difference, he finds, for this "capable little camera." He's found a G15 to play with too.
  • In Nikon 14-30/4 S Flare, Jim Kasson discovers an issue with the shutter of the Nikon Z series cameras. Using the electronic shutter eliminates the artifact.
  • In So You Want to Make a Zine?, Andrew Molitor steps through the printing and book binding process of rolling your own booklet. You can sew the signatures together if you don't have a stapler.
  • In Genuine Shoutout to Peak Design Customer Service, the company impresses a second-hand buyer with its lifetime replacement policy when a zipper on the backpack he bought fails.

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