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 DNG Converter, charting lens data, Mavericks performance issues and the photography industry.

  • For all the automatic Adobe updates yesterday (with another set today for Elements), DNG Converter for Macintosh or Windows has to be done manually.
  • When Roger Cicala asked for help charting lens data "70 people asked for the data sets, and 40 of those sent their ideas back." In Geeks Go Wild: Data Processing Contest Suggestions, he shows the best of them.
  • Macintouch has been hosting a truly fascinating Mavericks discussion this month on performance issues. Since we wrote our Mavericks Diary, we too have been hit by intermittent slowdowns, particularly after software updates. Disk Utility helped once (we had some corruption) and a simple restart helped most recently. The discussion has other pointers.
  • In Who Speaks for Photography?, Francis Hodgson explores the parallels between photography, bicycling and gardening. "One of the salient facts about photography is that nobody controls it in the way that the music business or the film business or even the big-bucks sectors of publishing are controlled by corporate entities."

More to come...
