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 relevance of dSLRs, a romantic landscape surrounding a convent, thinner sensor stacks revisted and reengineering the U.S. Copyright office's system of documents recordation for the electronic age.

  • Thom Hogan asks Are dSLRs Still Relevant? as dSLR sales outpace mirrorless though more and more photographers claim to have switched to mirrorless. The Nikon D5 may hold the answer, he suggests.
  • Leave it to Harold Davis to capture an incredibly romantic landscape, as he calls it, while staying at a converted convent in Portugal. Gorgeous sunset, ominous storm clouds, glowing castle, manicured garden, rocky hill. Only the food disappointed.
  • Roger Cicala wonders if a thinner sensor stack "might improve a7R body performance with M-mount lenses designed for thinner or no sensor stack." In short, yes.
  • Carolyn Wright reports the U.S. Copyright office has released George Washington University Law School Professor Robert Brauneis' Report on Document Recordation, which "analyzes issues such as how to allocate responsibility for providing document cataloging information, how best to store and make available electronic documents, and how to accept and authenticate electronic signatures."

More to come...
