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 Maroesjka Lavigne, George Georgiou, black-and-white problems, Russell Brown's adventure, Cascable 4, dual-layer LED monitor technology, putting together a system and testing a new camera body.

  • Stephanie Wade presents a few images of The World's Majestic Lost Lands by Belgian photographer Maroesjka Lavigne. "She presents a narrative in which the passing of time in these surreal environments is contested; a haunting reminder of life's impermanence," Wade writes.
  • Spectators at U.S. Parades presents a few of British photographer George Georgiou's 2016 images from his book Americans Parade that "sheds an unexpected light on the fractured nature of contemporary American life."
  • Mike Johnston lists three Common Problems With Digital Black and White. "As a general rule," he writes, "the music of tonality is in the midtones and in finding whatever the right amount of detail in the highlights and shadows might be."
  • Adobe's Russell Brown squeezes through Utah's slot canyons with a smartphone while revealing what life is all about in this five-minute video:
  • Derrick Story reviews a WiFi Wonder for Connecting Camera and Mobile Device. "Cascable 4 is like having a Swiss Army Knife for wireless communication between camera and mobile device," he writes. He uses the free iOS app on his iPhone and iPad to transfer images from a variety of WiFi cameras.
  • Vincent Teoh of HDTV Test reviews the "dual-layer" Sony BVM-HX310 Broadcast 4K HDR mastering monitor, "the first LED that can surpass OLED" in this 13:20 clip. The $30,000 monitor isn't as much of interest as Teoh's discussion of the technology that may one day drip down to more affordable options:
  • Thom Hogan imagines putting together The Kit for "a 'full' and 'flexible" system" if he were starting from scratch today.
  • Kirk Tuck explains his ritual of Checking Out Each New Camera Body, in this case his open box Panasonic S1R.

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