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 the Alfred Fried awards, Samy Al Olabi, Pixelmator Photo, Toy Story 4, the Nikon Z 7, your first wedding (as a photographer), 2019 photo printers and Spectra film.

  • Nicco Valenzuela shares his experience with The Nikon Z 7 in the Hands of an Urban Photographer.
  • LensRentals's senior lens technician Joey Miller sits down for an interview with Roger Cicala in How to Shoot Your First Wedding. Miller has been shooting weddings in the Memphis area since 2008. That would make this year his steel anniversary.
  • Hillary Grigonis picks The Best Photo Printers for 2019 but they're all inkjet or Zink printers. Which means they're so expensive to use you won't use them. Sadly, though, printer tech hasn't changed much in the past few years. We'd really like to see a small, consumer dye sub compete with these inkjets and Zink printers.
  • Polaroid Originals CEO Oskar Smolokowski announced, with sadness, the end of Spectra wide-format film production. "With three decades behind them, these wide format cameras are now coming to the end of their useful lives," he writes. "Jamming and frequent breakdowns are now affecting the majority of these cameras and unfortunately, this is not something we can influence with our film." Andrew Billen, head of global manufacturing, added a production note on the company's attempts to overcome Spectra mechanical issues with changes to the film product.

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