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 Mary Ellen Mark, National Photo Month, new Trioplan f2.9/50 mounts and an external monitor fix.

  • In Attitude, by Mary Ellen Mark, James Estrin discusses the new exhibit of her work by that name at the Howard Greenberg Gallery. "The 'attitude' of the show's title was meant to refer to Ms. Mark's subjects," he writes, "but it also works well in describing the photographer. She was 'a fiercely independent soul who followed her own path,' said Howard Greenberg, the founder of the gallery."
  • Derrick Story suggests taking A Roll For National Photo Month or using an old lens on your digital camera body or, well, some other way to celebrate National Photo Month.
  • With its Kickstarter campaign exceeding $500,000, Meyer-Optik Görlitz announced it will add support for Leica L (SL and T mirrorless cameras) and Pentax K mounts to its Trioplan f2.9/50. Earlier the company had announced support for Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony-E, Fujifilm X, Micro-Four-Thirds, M42 and Leica M mounts.
  • If you Force RGB mode in Mac OS X your external monitor's picture quality will improve. "OS X thinks my monitor is a TV and is using the YCbCr color space rather than RGB," Mathew Inkson explains in this timeless piece. We'll just add if you get an overwrite warning when moving the new folder into /System/Library/Displays/Overrides just open the new folder and copy the new file into the existing folder of the same name.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
