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 California, the Philippines, Dorothea Lange, Nikon teleconverters, hotspotting, rolling cases, the M1 Mini and an app list.

  • In How Locals See California, over 100 California photographers documented the state of the state. Beautiful, amazing, amusing. As always.
  • Jes Aznar photographed the Devastating Floods that submerged the Philippines during this typhoon season. In one, a young mother nurses an infant surrounded by three white coffins.
  • In Reflections: Alice Doo on Dorothea Lange, Doo remembers her own California childhood and reflects on the relationship among art, change and American history through a Dorothea Lange photograph.
  • In A Teleconverter Quick Assessment, Thom Hogan evaluates the two Nikon TC teleconverters on a 70-200mm f2.8 Nikkor.
  • Jim Kasson discusses Infrared Hotspotting after getting his Fujifilm GFX 50R back from LifePixel. "It's not strictly an IR thing," he notes. And, indeed, it's exactly what we were fighting recently.
  • Kirk Tuck sings the praises of Rolling Cases. "The advent of good, sturdy rolling cases was pivotal for me," he writes.
  • In Apple Mac Mini With M1 Review: Over-Performer, Chris Welch reports the new Mini "punches above its weight." "I've thrown a lot at this tiny desktop computer over the last several days and it chews through everything -- Lightroom Classic, Plex transcodes, piles of Chrome tabs -- with aplomb," he writes. Two USB ports instead of four and a ceiling of 16-GB RAM are the big limitations.
  • MacRumors has the most comprehensive list of Universal and Native Apple Silicon Apps so far.

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