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 new iPad Pro, EVFs, filters and unanswered questions about Nikon's upcoming releases.

  • Derrick Story takes a peek at the New 9.7-Inch iPad Pro, calling it "a powerful tool for nimble photographers, especially the 256-GB model combined with an SD card reader and Apple Pencil." Especially if you're using Apple Photos. But anyone will like the wider color gamut, True Tone adaptive lighting display and improved performance of the new iPad.
  • Could be the most important feature of your next camera will be its EVF, which will eliminate the mirror and lighten the load, too. Kirk Tuck makes a few camera observations about Sony's popular move to just that configuration. But he (like Matt Granger recently) can't bring himself to recommend Sony.
  • In To filter or not to filter?, Ming Thein answers "one of the most frequently asked questions I encounter." Thoroughly too.
  • Thom Hogan has So Many Unanswered Questions after Nikon's D5/D500 and DL announcements. Not to mention a few other puzzles like what will become of the Nikon 1 system and the lack of "glass action."

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