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 Christmas again, Kodak's proprietary film formats, Contax, a steal and the Excire Search Pro 2 discount.

  • In Christmas Around the World, Alan Taylor presents 30 images of both secular and holy celebrations from China, Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan, England, India, Japan, the U.S. and many other places.
  • In a bit of revisionist history, Azriel Knight explains in 10 minutes How Kodak Ruined Christmas:
  • In The Contax Brand, 1974-2005, Mike Johnston relives an era in film photography that prized mechanical cameras over battery-dependent bodies.
  • Kirk Tuck's wrap-up of The Last Three Days includes the camera he bought himself for $447.99.
  • Excire has extended its 20 percent discount for Excire Search Pro 2 until the end of the year. After an overnight update of our large image database index only completed a fraction of the job, we ran into holiday scheduling issues that have kept us from testing the update.

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