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 Hogan on Apple, Apple and Raw, three cameras hit the road and covering grief.

  • In Another One Bites the Dust, Thom Hogan reflects on Aperture, iPhoto, Photos and Lightroom. "Watch how fast Adobe tries to copy what Apple is doing," he writes. "Indeed, Adobe's convoluted mobile offerings (Lightroom Mobile, Photoshop Mobile, etc.) are attempts to figure it out before someone else gets there. Based upon what I've seen to date, I don't think Adobe has a clearer view of the world they want to get to than Apple does."
  • Like Apple, however, Hogan doesn't address the cloud-sharing issue that vexes Adobe: Raw captures. Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty spelled it out in The Field Triage Opportunity for Lr Mobile last April. Is Apple offloading its Raw customers to Adobe as it develops a more sophisticated solution for iPhoneography?
  • In Roadbuilding! (and the Cameras I Used), Mike Johnston stayed up late with three cameras to shoot the road crew in front of his house: a Sigma DP2 Merril, Olympus E-M1 and Fujifilm X-T1.
  • In The Oregon school shootings: Covering grief, Michael Lloyd responds as a local photojournalist to the mourners' aversion to news coverage of the event, noting "most journalists I know are not a pack of heartless savages out for readers, ratings and website hits, without compassion for those whose lives they report upon."
