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 Nikon D810 sensor cover glass, a Graham Nash exhibit in the Napa Valley, photographing the demolition of Singapore's National Stadium and Schiffer Publishing.

  • Jorn O's local repair technician discovered a problem with the Nikon D810 Sensor Cover Glass on his two new bodies. He described the issue on Lloyd Chambers' site, "the low pass filters (or protective glass) on both cameras have a significant number of dark specks of some kind in the surface coating or embedded in the sensor glass. He [the tech] observed (30 power microscope) 18 of these specks on one sensor and 24 on the other."
  • Over 50 photographs by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash will be on display in a new exhibition at the Fine Art Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa in Rutherford. Titled My Life Through My Lens, Photographs by Graham Nash, the exhibit runs through Jan. 31, 2015 at the winery's Fine Art Photography Gallery.
  • With Candlestick on its last legs, we were intrigued by Chee Yong Chow's Project 37: Negating-Architecture on the demolition of Singapore's former National Stadium. "I fell in love with architecture a long time ago," he writes, "and to see the grandeur of this process gave me the urge or more so the need to capture it, at least as memories for the future."
  • Schiffer Publishing has an extensive list of photography art books on all the popular coffee table themes and a few more.

More to come...
