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 Ebony view camera, snapshots from Vietnam, sample Raw files on iOS 10 and developing color negative film at home.

  • Richard Sexton announces An Era Ends for Ebony View Camera as Tokyo photographer Hiromi Sakanashi, who designed the camera, announced he will cease manufacturing them June 30. "Ebony is the finest wooden field camera ever made and, honestly, nothing else is even close," Jeff Taugner at Badger Graphic Sales put it.
  • In The New York Times How Young Soldiers Saw Life, Joseph Berger presents 24 of the 72 images from the traveling exhibit My War: Wartime Photographs by Vietnam Veterans. The snapshots, curated by photojournalist Marissa Roth, were taken by 22 servicemen during the Vietnam War. Roth went through thousands of photos, discovering even more had been destroyed because the veterans who took them "could not bear to look at them."
  • More details are emerging about iOS 10's APIs for capturing Raw files on the iPhone. Manolo Sanudo, the author of the $1.99 Reuk manual camera, it will only be enabled for the back camera of devices with the latest 12-Mp camera (the iPhone 6S/6S Plus/SE and iPad Pro 9.7). Sanudo updated a version of Reuf to capture Raw and has posted the images.
  • Michael Raso shows how to develop color negatives at home in 10 minutes using the Film Photography Project's $19.99 C-41 kit.

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