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 a quarantine, a daguerreotype, older but available camera bodies, Photo Raw 2021.1, Avalanche for Luminar and an upcoming Nikon Z firmware update.

  • Photographer Jillian Edelstein endured a 14-day Sydney Hotel Quarantine with the help of her camera.
  • In How to Preserve a Piece of Abolitionist History, Alexandria Sivak interviews Sarah Freeman, a conservator for the Getty Museum, on how she cares for rare and important photographs like Fugitive Slave Law Convention, a daguerreotype from 1850.
  • In Older Bodies, Thom Hogan suggests fighting the supply chain issues of newer cameras with older winners like the Olympus E-M1 Mark II and the Sony A9, among others.
  • ON1 is discounting its Photo Raw 2021.1 with non-destructive spot healing, enhanced portrait AI, custom brush shapes, slider enhancements, a full screen preview and more. The launch special discount and bonuses are available through Feb. 26.
  • Avalanche can now convert Aperture, Lightroom and Capture One catalogs to Luminar AI, as well as migrate Luminar 4 catalogs to Luminar AI.
  • Nikon will release Firmware Version 1.10 for its Z 7II and Z 6II mirrorless cameras on Feb. 25, adding support for 4K UHD/60p to Z 6II video recording options and improved eye detection autofocus performance on the Z 7II and Z 6II. It will also support Raw video output to Blackmagic external recorders on both the Z 7II and Z 6II, enabling recording in Blackmagic Raw format as well as ProRes Raw format.

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