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 paired images of New York, the Godox AD200, laptops for photo editing and Photo Mechanic Plus Beta 2.

  • In Same Pictures Same Places 68 Years Apart, Anika Burgess pairs Sam Falk's 1951 black-and-whites of New York with Tony Cenicola's recent color images shot in the same location (but not quite with the same perspective).
  • Strobist David Hobby likes the Godox AD200 with a little tweak or two. Like a better reflector and a soft box adapter.
  • Kevin Parrish lists four of The Best Laptops for Photo Editing. Pay close attention to the displays. Any display should hit 100 percent of sRGB but for photo editing, you'll want to get close to 100 percent of AdobeRGB, too. And models like the Asus Zenbook don't do that.
  • Camera Bits has released Photo Mechanic Plus Beta 2 for Photo Machanic 6 owners. "Photo Mechanic Plus is a premium upgrade to Photo Mechanic 6 that contains Catalog features," the company said. "Catalog is an advanced database allowing you to manage images and videos across multiple drives in one place. It has advanced search options to be able to locate, browse and manage large numbers of images with the speed that Photo Mechanic is known for."

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