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 Death Valley, a simple digital camera, responsibilities, Meyer Optik Gorlitz and a gear sale.

  • Harold Davis presents a few of his Death Valley Landscapes from a recent visit "emphasizing patterns and folds in the vastness of this very special place."
  • Mike Johnston asks, Will There Ever Be a Super-Simple Digital Camera? "One of the reasons I want to shoot a little film again is -- I admit it -- that the cameras are different," he writes. "No one is ever going to make a simple but high-quality digital camera that feels like a simple film camera."
  • In The Photographer as Philosopher, Ming Thein writes, "It's the responsibility of the photographer to ensure that the presentation and impression received by the viewer matches his or her intentions. It's the responsibility of the photojournalist to be as objective as humanly possible. Finally, it's the responsibility of the viewer to look at things in a detached, objective, questioning way; not just to accept what gets forced in your eyes."
  • Meyer Optik Görlitz announces it will present new versions of historic lenses and future designs at Photokina 2020. The company will show its Trioplan 100, Trioplan 50, Trioplan 35, Primoplan 75, Primoplan 58 and Lydith 30, all in production.
  • Lloyd Chambers is having a Gear Sale that includes Leica M gear, Leica R lenses, a Sony A7R III and a Hasselblad XPAN system.

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