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 Mikko Lagerstedt, the Grinch, a garage sale, a meditation, David Hobby, Capture One sharpening, Ctein sale and the Ring camera.

  • Andrew Lasane presents Majestic Trees in Serene Finnish Landscapes captured by Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt. "Taken from Lapland to Southern Finland, the images speak to qualities of beauty and of resilience," he writes.
  • Thom Hogan asks, Will the Grinch Steal Christmas? There are "just from the Japanese camera companies: 65 mirrorless models to chose from, 42 dSLRs you can still buy new," he points out. And buyers are sitting on the sidelines. "This may be the perfect time to pick up a beater system," he suggests.
  • Speaking of which, Ming Thein is holding a Year End Garage Sale.
  • Kirk Tuck does some Walking Meditation With a Camera in a soft fall rain. "I do love these kinds of days. It's one time at which all the dynamic range in the world is largely meaningless," he writes.
  • Strobist David Hobby saw the movie Joker and is convinced Greg Heisler could have lit it. 'Joker' Cinematographer on Light & Color analyzes how effective the use of color is as a psychological and emotional component of the movie is.
  • Lloyd Chambers has updated an interesting discussion of Phase One/Capture One sharpening. Capture One Pro offers three different sharpening tools. Interesting notes about using the Phase One IQ4 backs too.
  • In Fantastic First Day: Print Sale Update, the Morning After, Mike Johnston reports Ctein's dye sub sale "could not have gone better." And you've still got until next Friday to order.
  • Adam Clark Estes warns Don't Buy Anyone a Ring Camera. "Last week a panel of five United States senators sent a letter to Amazon chief Jeff Bezos that expressed concern with Ring's struggles with information security and habit of sharing its users' videos not only with law enforcement but also with its Ukraine-based research team," he reports.

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