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 Sony A900 vs. the Nikon D750, the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens, the Nikon D5500 and Luis Fernandez.

  • Mike Johnston begins his comparison a 2008 Sony A900 to a 2014 Nikon D750, both using the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens, with some indoor shots that show the "A900 is still in the game."
  • Roger Cicala has other plans for that lens. His Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Teardown shows "what a normal, reliable 35mm f/1.4 lens looks like inside."
  • And Ming Thein reviews the Nikon D5500 as an alternative to mirrorless systems. "It is not a mirrorless camera, but it's a really good reason why mirrorless has still got some way to go before it will unseat dSLRs even at the low end of the market," he points out.
  • Kate Wesson tells us How Luis Fernandez Takes Wonderful iPhone Photos. He uses the earbuds as an off-camera trigger in low-light situations and edits in Snapseed. Mesmerizing images, too.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
