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 David Hume Kennerly, two Micro Four Thirds cameras, comparing flagship cameras, shooting through glass and vintage camera buying guides.

  • In Photographing Hell (gift link), the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist David Hume Kennerly writes about the images coming out of Ukraine and Russia's assault on the photojournalists taking them. "The best photographs of war might make us want to look away," he writes. "It's imperative that we do not."
  • In Some Thoughts About the Panasonic G9, Kirk Tuck looks at some 2018 images shot with the older Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera. "When used at ISOs from 200-1200 and in good light the differences between a four year old camera and a brand new one are not particularly noticeable," he writes. They're "mostly in the realm of high ISO noise reduction and speed." And in An ISO 5000 Day, he demonstrates ISO 5000 on a Leica CL.
  • In Battle of the Flagships, Ryan Hill, Joey Miller and Zach Sutton compare the Canon R3, Nikon Z 9 and Sony A1 in a "slightly-longer-than-usual" LensRentals podcast.
  • Dahlia Ambrose lists 23 Great Examples of Creative Photography Through Glass. "Reflection, diffraction, refraction and interference are some properties that can be used to capture amazing photographs through glass," she writes.
  • The Phoblographer presents a series of "How to Buy" charts in A Quick Buying Guide for Vintage Camera Lovers. All for film cameras with extended discussion of Leica rangefinders and point-and-shoot cameras.

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