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 Lumière at 120, a Sony 24-70mm lens teardown, Ken Falk and using the Eyefi mobiPro.

  • Rachel Donadio's Lumière! Inventing Cinema on the Paris exhibition running through June 14 includes an 11 photo slide show celebrating the 120th anniversary of a notable film screening, at the Grand Palais.
  • Roger Cicala describes Tearing Down the Sony 24-70mm f4 ZA OSS Vario Tessar after Sony quoted $800 for a $300 repair. All it needed was a dab of glue. "So much of the lens is so thoughtfully engineered," he writes, "that it's a shame such a critical connection apparently was engineered as an afterthought."
  • In Don't Get Social, Be Social, photographer Ken Falk explains the trick being social. "Absolute honesty and transparency will get you very far," he suggests.
  • Derrick Story lists six steps for Paring the New Eyefi mobiPro with a Fujifilm X20. Sounds like work.
