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 a street photography film, the Sony a7R III, moving an Aperture library to Capture One and Leo Matiz.

  • Shot in London, New York, Melbourne and Rotterdam, Nikc Turpin's 39-minute film In-Sight uses small HD camera mounted on the photographer's camera to show each street shooter's working technique. It also includes insightful interviews with the photographers and a selection of their stills. Not to be missed.
  • In Comparing the Sony a7R III to the Sony a9 & a7RII, Brennan McKissick sizes up the Sony sisters before going for the youngest one. "I do think that Sony is finally taking the right steps forward into turning their mirrorless line up into a well rounded professional system that can finally start to compete with the longstanding champions of the pro market from Canon and Nikon in terms of hardware," he concludes.
  • Derrick Story makes The Great Migration -- 1-TB Aperture Library to Capture One Pro after going into the attic and spending a few tortured moments with Aperture again. "Capture One Pro is exceedingly good at this transition," he writes. "Most of the library structure migrates, sans Smart Albums. Many of the image adjustments carry over as well. And all of the metadata, including my star ratings and IPTC were welcomed in their new home."
  • In Leo Matiz, History and Fiction Through Photography, Wendy Maloney highlights the Library of Congress' new acquisition on the 100-year anniversary of his birth.
