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 windows, Steve Gosling, Lightroom, a replaced SE, Sigma fp magnifying loupes, new Lexar card readers, Nikonians, streaming software, a copyright case and Madeline Kripke.

  • Erin Migdol explores The Artist's View Through the Window, something we're all engaged in these days, no doubt. The piece shows a few photographs from the Getty collection.
  • Kevin Raber has A Conversation With Steve Gosling. "He's a fun, positive and energetic person with a great eye and approach to photography," Raber says.
  • Turn Left Turn Right, the Power of Lightroom Classic is a free workshop with Paul Burnett and Julieanne Kost that will be held Saturday, May 2 at 7 p.m. PDT.
  • Andrei Frumusanu posts his Updated iPhone SE Camera Testing results after Apple sent a replacement SE. "In the new camera samples, we can see a dramatic improvement in sharpness of the pictures and the new phone exhibits none of the optical issues that were initially described in the article," he writes.
  • Kirk Tuck evaluates three Sigma fp magnifying loupes, including the mythical Sigma LVF-11, a Hoodman and a Movo.
  • Lexar has announced a Multi-Card 3-in-1 Reader for SD, microSD and CompactFlash cards as well as a Compact Multi-Card 2-in-1 Reader for SD and microSD cards.
  • Nikonians is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a 50 percent discount on Gold memberships through May 20. Use the voucher nik2020 to take advantage of this offer ($37.50 instead of the regular $75).
  • Thom Hogan recommends camera companies (famous for the mediocre quality of their software offerings) skip trying to write streaming software (Canon, he's talking to you) in favor of apps like the free CamTwist or subscription-based Ecamm Live.
  • In Copyright Notice at Bottom of Web Page = Willful Infringement, Carolyn Wright heralds the uncontested case as "encouraging for photographers." It would, however, seem uninformed when considered in the context of more traditional publishing in which copyright is claimed on behalf of the publication for works whose license for use is restricted. Here we do use a bottom-of-the-page copyright and we mean it in the same sense as any other publication. But individual images in which copyright has been reserved are so marked in the Exif header.
  • A woman of many words, mostly unspoken, Madeline Kripke amassed a lexicographic trove of some 20,000 books, one of the world's largest collection of dictionaries. She will be missed.

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