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 Christo, virtual venues, white balance, a Lomo conversion, indoor activities, a wildlife camera, inclusivity and Central Camera Company.

  • Derrick Story suggests Putting Our Camera Gear to Work Indoors. In his case, he happily harnessed his Olympus PEN-F for webcam duty. Around here we cleaned all our sensors a couple of weeks ago.
  • In Generic Versus Specific, Thom Hogan wonders how "to define a camera that doesn't exist." In particular, he wonders what a camera designed for wildlife photographers would look like.
  • In Inclusivity Guide, Andrew Molitor considers an image in Photographer's Guide to Inclusive Photography after summing up the advice in the publication as, "Do your research, be empathetic, avoid stereotypes."
  • Chicago's Central Camera Company was damaged in a two-alarm fire during protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the company reported on its Facebook page. The store plans to set up a GoFundMe page to support its effort to rebuild.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
