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 Henri Cartier-Bresson, Kennecott Mines, 2019 Gear, Nikon feedback, creatives' predictions, CES and Canon's RF 70-200mm firmware update.

  • In Henri Cartier-Bresson: China Breaking Free of Its Past, the Guardian presents images from the current exhibit at Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris.
  • In Kennecott Mines: An Alaskan Ghost Town, Alan Taylor presents 16 images from several sources of the deserted mining town that is now a National Historic Landmark.
  • In 2019 Gear in Review: Bests and Busts, the LensRental staff shares its picks for best and worst photo and video equipment from 2019.
  • In Nikon Announcement Feedback, Thom Hogan compares customer reaction to the tech press evaluation of the D780 and two lenses Nikon announced this week.
  • In Resolutions and Taking Risks, Mia Pinjuh talks to a diverse set of creatives to get a sense of how the year will go.
  • John Gruber calls CES The Concept Electronics Show, claiming the companies exhibiting prototypes there "are bad at designing actual products." He adds, "It is highly instructive that the one company best known for shipping genuinely exciting, groundbreaking products never shows concept designs." That would be Apple.
  • Canon has released a firmware update to fix the persistent front-focusing of its RF 70-200mm f2.8 lenses, particularly evident at longer focal lengths.

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