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 dancing at home, fashion industry slavery, JPEGs, old cameras, Fujifilm G lenses and "that guy."

  • Pandemic got you feeling antsy? Let's Dance is an Amsterdam-based project captures small moments of cathartic abandon in people's living rooms.
  • In Fast Fashion's Problem With Modern Slavery, Ellyn Kail interviews Minneapolis-based photographer and social justice advocate Marla Klein about her project How Many Hands . "So much of our clothing is made by the hands of enslaved people subjected to inhumane working conditions," Klein says. "No one talks about this."
  • Wearing a bulky overcoat stuffed with purloined goods, Thom Hogan whispers, You Want Great JPEGs? Here's the 411. Sounds like more work than shooting Raw. But he sometimes shoots Raw+JPEG and wants an optimized JPEG.
  • Hogan also suggest you Look Behind to Look Ahead when buying a new camera. What's that mean? He asks whether a five-year-old camera is still viable today? Yes. What about a 10-year-old camera. Yes. "I know that those five-year old and ten-year old dinosaur dSLRs are still taking photos that manage to sell, because I can find people doing just that with them," he writes.
  • In Fujifilm G Lenses Hotspotting at 720nm, Jim Kasson has published a table showing "which Fujifilm G lenses hotspot and which don't."
  • Following up his earlier post about "that guy," Scott Kelby reveals Two Revelations he subsequently had. We'd prefer to let him tell it.

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