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 Anna Fox, the 10 best cameras, cameras under $1,000, the camera you click with, change and Tuck returns.

  • In Making Room, a Trailblazer in Documentary, Clare Samuel interviews Anna Fox about her unusual documentary photography. "The idea of combining image and text was partly inspired by British comedy and how humor and irony can really draw you into a narrative," she says.
  • Jon Sienkiewicz claims These Are the 10 Best Cameras You Can Buy in 2020. "Our choices for the ten best cameras you can buy in 2020 run the gamut from high-end professional dSLRs and full-frame mirrorless cameras, to premium compact models, pocket-sized cameras for vlogging and one innovative mirrorless camera capable of shooting 8K video," he writes. Why procrastinate? Buy all 10.
  • Or put one of these Feature-Packed Cameras Under $1,000 hand-picked by Chris Gampat on your credit card.
  • Or you can dream, as Mike Johnston does in The Camera You Click With, proposing a place where you could order any camera currently made. "Leaving your driver's license for security, you could then take the camera upstairs and outside to a roof garden," he writes, "where various scenes and setups and perhaps even models (not all pretty women) would be available for trial pictures -- which you could also take of the surrounding environs from over the railings."
  • In Change Challenged or Champion?, Howard Oakley proposes an interesting option. "Imagine for a moment two or three carefully chosen older Intel Macs bundled with a non-upgradable but maintained version of macOS Mojave," he writes. It would cost Apple nothing but "a small team of software engineers curating macOS 10.14 to eliminate its remaining bugs." And you'd never have to update it. Until, that is, some key application would no longer run on it.
  • Kirk Tuck announces VSL Is Back. We kind of suspected it would be. Addictions being what they are.

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