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 value of a 4K camcorder, a Leica M Monochrom appraisal, a Photos tutorial and a poster artwork contest for the Acadia Night Sky Festival.

  • In Panasonic HC-X1000 and Sony FDR AX-100, Michael Reichmann makes the argument for a camcorder over a video dSLR, explaining why you should shoot in 4K.
  • Lloyd Chambers tests diffraction on the Leica M Monochrom Type 246 and discovers digital artifacts not caused by sharpening "so it's not a result I yet understand." He notes that while dynamic range looks good, it's "well short of the Nikon D810." Full article for subscribers only.
  • Can't make Derrick Story's workshop on making the transition from Aperture or iPhoto mentioned in yesterday's Horn? Take a look at his Up and Running with Photos OS X at
  • The Seventh Acadia Night Sky Festival has opened its second annual public Poster Artwork Contest celebrating "the night skies over Acadia and Downeast Maine." Photographers and artists over the age of 18 are eligible to participate and all skill levels and mediums are welcome. For full terms and conditions of the contest.
