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 CES 2021, the Fujifilm X100V, a Nikon Coolscan 5000 and ComplexLand.

  • Yes, CES 2021 will open on Monday as a virtual event. For industry professionals only, the new format is explained in the Help Center documents.
  • Kirk Tuck likes the chrome version of the Fujifilm X100V (despite the reflections in glass?) and doesn't mind the lack of image stabilization when he sets ISO to roam and a shutter speed no slower than 1/60 second. "I didn't realize how much I missed working with a small, discrete and non-confrontational camera," he writes.
  • In The Wayback Machine Is Up, Thom Hogan hooks up his vintage Nikon Coolscan 5000 to a new computer with an adapter and third-party software. We should be so lucky just updating to Mojave as Canon dropped driver support for the Canoscan 9000F with that upgrade so SilverFast no longer runs the scanner. Fortunately VueScan, with its reverse-engineered driver, has no problem.
  • In Creators in ComplexLand, Adobe and Complex feature five emerging Black creators including photographer Juan Veloz.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
