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 La Raza, submissions to the Bob and Diane Fund, the Kingston Bolt, Frederic Filloux and

  • In Making Chicano Life Visible, Maurice Berger takes a look at La Raza, an exhibition at the Autry Museum of the American West celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of the publication of the same name. The exhibit is culled from 25,000 historical photos donated to UCLA's Chicano Studies Research Center.
  • The Bob and Diane Fund seeks submissions from visual storytellers on stories about Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. Submissions are due Oct. 22.
  • Derrick Story reviews the Kingston Bolt Flash Backup Device for iPhones but not favorably. We had a look at it ourselves a couple of days ago and were unimpressed. It's a well-designed, compact USB thumbndrive but the app only handles photo and video storage. And it uses the iPhone's battery. A better solution? SanDisk's iXpand. We reviewed an earlier model a while ago.
  • Frederic Filloux published his Memo to Camera Makers: Put Android in Your Device or Face Extinction. He left his Fujifilm X100 T in its bag and used his iPhone 7 Plus on a recent trip. "Why? Four reasons: Performance, interface, post-production capabilities and connectivity." But it's all about the software. "Whether it is to address physical constraints such as the lens size and sensor format or post-processing, software will keep eating the world," he writes.
  • helps clients find photographers and vice versa. Photographers create a profile and upload portfolios of their work for clients to review. You can also apply for nearby jobs through the Job Board. Once hired, you meet the client on location, do the work then upload the images to an album on Shootster. You will receive payment within three to five business days after the client reviews the photos and marks the job as complete, the company said.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
