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 Canon 6D Mark II, National Camera Day, the Plustek OpticFilm 8200 and ArchivesSpace.

  • B&H is holding a Canon 6D Mark II panel discussion at 7 p.m. ET today. Participants include Mel DiGiacomo, Drew MacCallum, Allan Weitz and Lisa Gershman.
  • National Camera Day? OK, it's National Camera Day. "To celebrate National Camera Day, snap a picture of something or someone you enjoy and cherish the memory. Post photos on social media using #NationalCameraDay." Who knew?
  • Ted O'Hara's piece on Scanning Slides With the Plustek OpticFilm 8200 was posted in 2013 but it mirrors our experience with the OpticFilm 120 and OpticFilm 135. Particularly regarding the software. He "would recommend the Plustek OpticFilm 8200 scanner to anyone, with the caveat that they would be well served to look into VueScan instead of sticking with the bundled software."
  • In Training a New Generation of Archivists Through ArchivesSpace, Tristan Bravinder highlights the volunteer work of Nancy Enneking, Getty's head of institutional archives, for ArchivesSpace, an open source database system for archival material.

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


I saw the item above in which Ted O'Hara recommended the Plustek Opticfilm 8200. I agree it's a great scanner! As one of the developers of VueScan I was also pleased he recommended people try VueScan with that scanner.
