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 Pentax K1's Super Resolution mode, Alexis Cuarezma, William Stewart and Seim's new Photo Kit.

  • In Pentax K1 Super Resolution Mode, Lloyd Chambers explains why he thinks the K-1 "should surpass the Leica M Monochrom with ease" as "the finest black and white camera on the market." Super Resolution mode's uninterpolated RGB values for each pixel is not too shabby for color, either.
  • David Hobby introduces The Secret(s) to Alexis Cuarezma's Success, a seven-minute video interview with the sports portrait specialist.
  • Now that the kids are at school, have you hugged your tree today? In Trees, Complex Subjects That Depict Absolute Graceness, William Stewart talks about shooting trees with his Leicas. Sadly, this resulted in a book titled Trees, which of course killed a few trees. But Stewart makes amends with an in-depth look at how he published the book, with insights into Blurb and offset printing as well as a printing checklist.
  • Gavin Seim's Photo Kit is a monthly stream of his Lightroom presets, Photoshop actions, instructional videos and support. The first 150 get it for $15/month before the price goes to $21/month. Yep, a subscription service.

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