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 what the Sony a7R II means, a Leica Q review, Patrick Smit and North Korea.

  • Michael Reichmann thinks Sony Kicks Butt with its new a7R II flagship dSLR, hoping, "Maybe the big boys will now realize that a time like now, when the industry is in a serious transition is not the time to be faint hearted, but rather a time to innovate and give the photographic community products that meet their needs, and as importantly, excite."
  • And don't miss Reichmann's piece on the new Leica Q even if you have other plans for $4,250. "If I was heavily involved in wide-angle street shooting and had a spare $5K," he concludes, "I'd be all over my local dealer to put me at the front of the queue (Q?) for the Q."
  • Kate Wesson finds out How Patrick Smit Takes Great iPhone Landscape Photos in a nicely illustrated interview with the photographer.
  • In Six Days in North Korea, photographer David Guttenfelder express "the best hope is that bits of authentic beauty will shine across a strictly maintained distance" in an interactive photo/video essay.
