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 Cody Cobb, the Vello BG-N19, the Panasonic GH5, a portrait of a single atom and a Voyager I snap.

  • In Cody Cobb Captures the Sublime, Rosie Flanagan presents a few images from the Seattle-based photographer's landscape series West II. "The second installment of this series continues Cody's quest to capture the scale of the natural world: mountains are silhouetted against dark skies littered with stars and towering sand dunes cut perfect lines against impossibly blue skies," she writes.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Vello BG-N19, a $100 vertical grip for the Nikon D850. More accurately, he assesses the options for achieving up to 9 fps continuous shooting, which involves a battery and charger, too. And even more interestingly, he asks if you really want 9 fps considering the "hefty hit" the buffer takes.
  • Kirk Tuck writes "a more visceral story" about the Panasonic GH5 than its reviews offer. "Tell me stories about how you spend your time with your camera," he finds himself thinking. And then does just that.
  • Single Trapped Atom Captures Science Photography Competition's Top Prize says it all. You'll want to enlarge the thumbnail, shall we say.
  • And on the other end of the spectrum (just to show you how far we'll go for you), Jon Fingas presents a Voyager I snap in New Horizons Probe Captures Images at Record Distance From Earth. It's just 3.79 billion miles away.
