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 Anton Kusters, Boaz Aharonovitch, Rick Sammon, the best sports camera, favorite camera and LosslessCut.

  • In Anton Kusters: The Blue Skies Project, Cat Lachowskyj presents a few of the 1078 Polaroid photos of the blue skies above Nazi concentration camps, each stamped with the estimated victims and its GPS coordinates. "Looking up and away from the landscape -- from the sites, from the mass graves -- is a commentary on how we all collectively looked away at one point in history and often still look away today," he says.
  • In A Photographic Garden Grows in Times Square, Miss Rosen stops to smell the flowers captured by Israeli artist Boaz Aharonovitch's photo-diary Growing a Garden for an Unknown Lover. (Valentine's Day is tomorrow, BTW.)
  • In How Rick Sammon Creates Killer Travel Images, Sammon discusses his photo tour travels around the world, why you should be able to adjust your own camera in the dark and why emotional intelligence is so important for photographers (well, anyone really).
  • Thom Hogan asks, So What's the Best Sports Camera Now? And gives different answers for Canon, Nikon and new sports shooters. With an eye to future mirrorless developments.
  • Favorite Camera Ever? asks Kirk Tuck before listing his top 10. In first place: the Kodak DCS760.
  • LosslessCut is a free "simple and ultra fast cross platform tool for lossless trimming/cutting of video and audio files." It can also capture full-resolution JPEGs from video files, which is more viable in the era of UHD video.

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