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 Byrds, Shopvida, dynamic range and new Fujifilm rebates.

  • In This Family, Photography Is for the Byrds takes a peek at the Byrd William Family Photography Collection acquired by the University of North Texas Libraries. It comprises 400,000 negatives and thousands of prints, plus letters and artifacts, taken by a Texas photography dynasty that spans 120 years and three centuries.
  • In Vida and Shopvida: Annals of Deceptive Business Models, Howard Davis details his experience with the new service. "While not an out-and-out scam, as a customer I would be disappointed in the quality of the work, particularly considering the price, and I would likely be disinclined to order more products from this company," he concludes.
  • In Stark contrast: how your camera copes with dynamic range capture, Richard Butler explains how your camera manages dynamic range when creating a JPEG and what you can do about it. (What we do about it is shoot Raw so we can manage the issue manually).
  • Fujifilm is offering rather substantial new instant rebates through Dec. 24 on camera bodies and lenses.

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