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 what a radiologist and a photographer have in common, how to capture speed in a still, the Zeiss ExoLens for the iPhone and how a mat affects your perception of color.

  • Kirk Tuck shot a portrait of a radiologist who tells him they're really in the same business. Clients and patients don't really know how to value either service. "We are routinely judged by how pleasant we've made the process," Tuck agrees.
  • In Bring Speed to the Still, Moose Peterson details the factors that made his antique flying machine shots so compelling. Light, distance, lens, release mode and panning skill all play a role.
  • Rob Dunsford reviews the Zeiss ExoLens Wide-Angle Lens for the iPhone. And he doesn't waste time proclaiming it "the best quality lens we've ever reviewed." It mounds on an iPhone sans case via an aluminum bracket with a soft gel liner. The bracket includes a cold shoe and tripod socket. Focal length is a good bit wider than the iPhone's wide angle, if you're wondering.
  • In In Image Editing, the Surround Matters, Jim Kasson considers how the border around your image (think of the mat in your frame) affects the appearance of colors.

We've been optimizing our style sheet as we accommodate our photokina 2016 coverage and updating our archive to match the style of the other indices. Let us know if you find anything amiss. Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
