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 using drones to show climate change, mirrorless cameras, the Sony A7RII and a camera clock.

  • In Photographing Climate Change Refugees, by Drone and on Foot, James Estrin interviews Josh Haner about finding new ways to visualize climate change, like using drones. "Many countries have not yet defined their laws related to drones and that's why we wanted to work on this series as quickly as possible," Haner said. "In fact, over the course of this year, the laws in the United States changed and now there is a sanctioned test so that media professionals and others who want to be able to fly drones commercially can get certified to fly."
  • Thom Hogan insists There Is No Best mirrorless camera this year. But he has a list of Pretty Good Ones.
  • In Shooting an Event With the Sony A7RII, Jim Kasson fights LED lighting and near darkness to come away with 450 images for a church Web site.
  • Wondering how to count down the seconds until 2017? What could be better than this $69 Pentax ME Super Analog Clock? Works as a camera, too, we're told.

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