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 Kevin Raber, Elke Vogelsang, the Australian Associated Press, buying used, a Mars panorama, copyright registrar and unplugging.

  • In Sony a7R IV Pushed to the Limits, Kevin Raber interrupts his dinner to capture some penguins on an iceberg. After dessert he took a look at the images in Capture One. And back home at last, he also worked on them in Photoshop and Topaz Denoise AI. But it was how the Sony behaved in an extreme situation that really impressed him. "Under difficult conditions, I was able to capture a number of good images that will be one of the defining moments of this trip to Antarctica," he writes.
  • In Comical Portraits by Elke Vogelsang Reveal Dogs' Fleeting Emotions, Grace Ebert presents a few of the Hildesheim, Germany-based photographer's portraits. "Vogelsang began photographing her three rescue dogs during a period of family hardship that started in 2009 -- she was charged with caring for her mother-in-law, who was suffering from dementia, shortly before her husband was in a coma due to a ruptured aneurysm," she writes. Vogelsang needed a laugh.
  • Amanda Meade reports AAP to Close After Wire Service Tells Staff It Is No Longer Viable. "It is a great loss that professional and researched information provided by AAP is being substituted with the unresearched and often inaccurate information that masquerades as real news on the digital platforms," said Australian Associated Press chairman Campbell Reid. AAP has provided over 500 stories, 750 images and 20 videos each day across news, politics, finance and sport.
  • Steve Meltzer demonstrates How to Buy Used Camera Gear: Get Great Secondhand Camera & Lens Bargains Without Getting Ripped Off. He replaced a Panasonic GX9 with a $500 used model he unearthed at MBP. "It looked absolutely new as though it had just come out of the factory," he writes.
  • NASA's Ashwin Vasavada narrates Curiosity Mars Rover Snaps 1.8 Billion-Pixel Panorama into something of a guided tour of the Glen Torridon region on Mars. It's a still composed of over 1,000 high resolution images but the video zooms in on the landmarks.
