With a name like “Ms. Eastman” catching my name I was astounded to learn she ran up much of her $170,000 student loan balance on her bachelors in photography degree!   You could go to medical school for that!  Well almost, Ms. Tidwell will run up a $250,000 student loan debt becoming an emergency room doctor.  This article is about how ‘hidden debt’ can ruin relationships, but Ms. Eastman’s $170,000 bachelor degree in photography really set me back in my chair!

This is indeed welcome news.  Zeiss will be making compact prime CP.2 (cine) lenses in the Sony Alpha mount (Sony NEX-3/NEX-5 and their NEX VG10 HD Camcorder) and for the Micro 4/3’s system.  It will be great having high quality Zeiss primes available for my little Sony.  I just hope they make them fast too!

A former rock n’ roll photographer takes on the subject of Islam.    Peter Sanders, a Muslim convert says he’s trying to show the true face of Islam through his photography.  He’s photographed everyone from Bob Dylan though Jimi Hendrix.  I have to ask, is photography as illegal in Islamic countries as it is becoming in the UK, USA, NZ, and Australia as I’ve reported in this column?  Are the guard bullying photographers and ignorant of the laws?
