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 Dickey Chapelle, sensor technology, geotags and favorite cameras.

  • Megan Thompson interviews John Garofolo in A tribute to one of America's first female photojournalists. That would be Dickey Chapelle. She covered the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa before losing her life in Vietnam. Garofolo's Dickey Chapelle Under Fire is the first full compilation of her work.
  • In Ctein's X-Mas: The Limits to Growth, the master printer considers the physical possibilities left for sensors. "How far might image quality be pushed, without resorting to nonstandard technologies?" he asks before suggesting how.
  • Derrick Story is Adding Geotags in Photos for OS X the easy way in this brief video.
  • We're partial to stories featuring hardware confusion. Kirk Tuck made most of his income this year shooting Nikon but loves his Olympus EM 5 II. Joey Miller took a Sony A7R II home with a Leica SL and just hated the big Leica until, well, Miller got to know the Leica.

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