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 dSLR vs. mirrorless, Wimbledon 2016, FStop and Prisma.

  • Thom Hogan has Seven Reasons Why I'm Still a Nikon dSLR User. The one mirrorless failing that stung us recently is viewfinder lag. You're looking at something that already happened in an EVF and by the time you press the shutter, it's not even a memory. But don't miss Focus or Image Quality?, his other post today, which simply points out "if the image isn't in focus it won't much matter what the camera's basic image quality is."
  • Emily Jan presents 25 Scenes From Wimbledon 2016, which are themselves a delightful lesson on composition more than a report of the action. Hard to pick a favorite (but it sure is fun trying).
  • FStop is a free social network for models and photographers (and other professionals like makeup artists). Here's how it works.
  • The free iOS app Prisma filters your photo through a classic artwork to derive an image with the style of the artwork. The latest version is faster with more styles and adjustable filter strength.

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