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 boredom, comedy pet photos, making new friends and sensor sensitivity.

  • You Can See How Bored They Were, Sarah Lee says of her best phone picture. It's two shadows of adolescent boys on a family vacation. Lee had dropped her Leica the first day of the trip and was reduced to shooting with her iPhone 12 Pro. "The camera quality on phones is impressive, especially in good lighting," she says. "It was very freeing to have something so light and so accessible."
  • Dan Havlick features a 15 winners of the Comedy Pet Photo Awards. "Want to see some purr-fect photos of our furry friends?" he asks.
  • Kirk Tuck has been Making New Friends on Sixth Street. One such "invited me in for a burger and beer at any time. On the house!" Tuck writes. "I guess I was looking like I might need a free meal, what with the sloppy clothes and me meandering around in the heat." Or maybe he just pitied that cheap TTArtisan 17mm lens on your Leica CL.
  • Jim Kasson wonders why Hasselblad X2D 100C Sensor Sensitivity is pegged at ISO 64 while the Fujifilm GFX has a base ISO of 100 with the same sensor. "There seems to be less here than meets the eye," he writes. He'll be testing for dynamic range, though.

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