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 macro shots of insects, Christopher Griffith, a 4K monitor buyer's guide, the new iMac Pro, geotag tips and Pixel Shift images.

  • In Getting Lost in the Insect World, Robin Wong shoots in Bukit Gasing Forest Park with his Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko 60mm F2.8 Macro lens.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews photographer Christopher Griffith about his Sean Hannity shoot for The New York Times Sunday Magazine. "All things said and done and whatever your opinion is of Sean Hannity," he said, "he was in no way manipulated or misled by anyone. He gave a performance and a very good one at that."
  • Mike Jennings has published his 4K Monitor Buyer's Guide 2018. It includes a nice primer on display technology, although his recommendations are not tailored specifically for photographers.
  • After a few days with the (not upgradable) iMac Pro, which is expected to ship Dec. 14, Marques Brownlee has recapped his experience in iMac Pro: One Week Impressions:
  • Geotag Tips offers two approaches to recording location when your camera doesn't have a GPS radio. "It's simple when you know what to do," Hybrid Dave concludes.
  • With his usual charm, Lloyd Chambers considers the Ideal Workflow for Pixel Shift images from Pentax (which made "a dumb mistake") and Sony (which makes "a mess").

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 (in fact we're updating our Adobe applications right now for a report on the upgrades later this morning)! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
