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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at developments of diverse sorts in the photographic space (got you there, eh?), more on the new Sigma sensor, an address to photography students and a discount on Krogh's new book.

  • In Disruption and Innovation, Roger Cicala looks at past developments in photography and predicts a few new ones, some disruptive, some incremental improvements. (Thanks, Aaron.)
  • Thom Hogan has updated his What Should We Make of Sigma? article, noting the Foveon revision is "much more similar to Lab Color than RGB color." In Sigma dp2 Quattro Lloyd Chambers diagrams the new sensor and adds, "I would expect the dp2 Quattro to outperform the Sony A7 on detail, and to approach the Sony A7R level of detail at least with some subjects."
  • Kirk Tuck has published the address he gave to photography students recently. "The whole secret," he confides, "is to find what it is in your life that makes you want to capture it in the camera and share it with everyone you know."
  • We're happy to provide our readers with a 10 percent discount on Peter Krogh's Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5, which we reported on recently. Just enter aff-mp-10-nx at checkout from the Bookshop. The code can be used on other items in the Bookshop, with the exception of the Victoria Bampton title and The DAM Book, second edition.

More to come...
