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 Zeldman on Instagram, the Sigma MC-11 lens adapter, Wim Swaan images released on Getty and pricing a three-day shoot.

  • In Instagram to Third-Party Developers: Drop Dead, Jeffrey Zeldman says he "can't decide whether Instagram is just a bully that decided to beat up the small fry independent developers or (more likely) a clumsy, drunken giant that doesn't feel the bodies squashing under its feet." His alternative? "I like Flickr, even though posting my photos there is kind of like leaving flowers at the grave of someone whose name I've forgotten."
  • In A Look at the New Sigma MC-11 Lens Adapter, Sarah McAlexander looks at the adapter that "promises full autofocus functionality for 15 Sigma Art Lenses on Sony E-mount cameras." With a side note about the "routine problems" the company has had with Metabones adapters.
  • Alina Sinetos reports "about 860 recently digitized images from the Wim Swaan photograph collection have been newly added to the Open Content Program, available to download and use for any purpose." The collection includes black-and-white and color image from the mid- to late-1960s.
  • Jeff Dudley helped a photographer price and negotiate Environmental Portraits of Client Employees for a three-day shoot.

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