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 the connectivity problem, Kost's aerials of the salt flats, used camera bargains and a McNally exhibit in Santa Fe.

  • John Nack remains "in sad amazement that 4.5 years after the iPad made tablets mainstream, no one -- not Apple, not Adobe, not Google -- has, to the best of my knowledge, implemented a way to let photographers to do what they beat me over the head for years requesting." Import camera DNGs to a tablet in the field, select the keepers, edit them non-destructively and pick up the edits back at the studio on a desktop machine. Lightroom comes close already but it might be worth watching the keynote Monday at Adobe Max.
  • In San Francisco Bay -- Aerials over the Salt Flats, Julieanne Kost spent 90 minutes in the air "in a plane with the doors off" to get this series that is part of her "ever evolving" $4.99 ebook Window Seat, The Art of Digital Photography and Creative Thinking. More of her salt flat aerials are at her Behance Pro Site.
  • Kirk Tuck discusses the value of buying used cameras. He picked up three Olympus EM-1s for around $450 and will be using them all on a shoot tomorrow. "It's even more fun that buying new," he notes.
  • Monroe Gallery in Sante Fe will exhibit "more than 45 photographs from Joe McNally's remarkable career that has spanned more than 30 years and included assignments in 60 countries." The show opens tomorrow. The site's current showcase has the thumbnails now and the archived showcase will have them if you're reading this after the show closes.

More to come...
