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 Ukraine, Perpignan, the Sigma FP, the Leica look, Roberts Camera, compact cameras and Weather Photographer of the Year.

  • The Associated Press summarizes Where Ukraine War Stands After 6 Months in photos.
  • Matt Fidler showcases images from Perpignan's Festival of Photojournalism, which run through Sept. 11.
  • Mike Johnston provides his Short Take and Personal Impressions on the Sigma FP modified to shoot black-and-white he's been testing. One plus (for example): "I said the other day that 'the menus feel like suddenly encountering a sensible adult after spending years surrounded by fractious five-year-olds,' and let me double down on that -- I feel like I can sense the intelligence and the sensibleness of the designers behind the menus, who are on my side for once." One minus: "No IBIS."
  • Zach Sutton became curious about The 'Leica Look' and tested the Canon 5d Mark IV against the Leica M10. See if you can tell which camera took which image.
  • Kevin Raber celebrates Roberts Camera's 65th Anniversary with images from the big event, which drew reps from Canon, Fujifilm and Nikon. The store has been selling used gear for 10 years now, too.
  • Hannah Rooke wonders, Is This the End of Compact Cameras? She reports Nikon and Panasonic have confimed "they will no longer be developing entry level point-and-shoot cameras" and Fujifilm "also stated that it would be getting rid of its FinePix range." She notes that it's been years since Canon or Sony have released a new entry-level compact.
  • The shortlist for the annual Royal Meteorological Society's Weather Photographer of the Year has been announced and through Sept. 21 you can vote for your favorite finalist.

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