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 Nimbus images, John Coutlakis, a better D810 NEF workflow and a new Ask the Pros blog at Think Tank Photo.

  • In 1964, NASA launched the first of seven Nimbus spacecraft to study Earth from space. Fifty years later, experts at the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado Boulder are recovering long-lost images from old Nimbus data tapes and black and white film. My, how things have changed.
  • Thom Hogan has returned and is catching up. In Thoughts About D810 NEF Workflow, he asks a harmless question. "Why isn't Nikon doing what some pros are doing?" Or put another way, "What if Nikon just created common [ACR] profiles before they shipped a camera and supplied them on launch day?"
  • In Photographs and memories, photographer John Coutlakis says goodbye to the Citizen Times after "the best 21 years of my life."
  • Think Tank Photo has added a heathered gray to its inexpensive Mirrorless Mover line. The crosshatch weave on the body is partly covered by the black cover. The company has also launched an Ask the Pros blog in which several photographers respond to the question of the day.

More to come...
