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. This time we look at Phnom Penh, Maurice Berger, a 50mm Carl Zeiss lens, an estimate, Lytro's living pictures and Peak Design's anchor links.

  • Robin Wong indulges in some Shutter Therapy in Phnom Penh with an Olympus OM-D camera and the Olympus 12-100mm f4. "People are warm and friendly, perhaps more so than Malaysians and I had no trouble approaching strangers for portraits," he writes. As you'll see.
  • In Using Photography to Tell Stories About Race, Maurice Berger discusses why he writes about race and photography, while presenting a selection of some of his favorite images.
  • Kirk Tuck explains how he adapted a 50mm Carl Zeiss lens to his Panasonic G85. One of the beauties of the Micro Four Thirds platform is being able to use a variety of lenses with nothing more than an inexpensive adapter.
  • In Vehicle Owner Portraits for Automotive Brand, Craig Oppenheimer prices and negotiates the job to just under $20,000.
  • Lytro has discontinued its Living Pictures site. Embedded Lytro pictures on your own Web sit will no longer work. "As a workaround, you can replace them with a movie export of the living picture," Lytro recommends.
  • Jim Kasson falls in love with Peak Design's anchor links, which you can adapt to your favorite camera strap, he discovered. Every one of our cameras has an anchor link on it.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for health coverage under the American Health Care Act until Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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