The high-profile photo organizing app, Carousel, was recently put on the chopping block by its developer, the popular online storage service Dropbox. By next March, the iOS and Android apps will be killed (although users’ photos will be safely stored in Dropbox.) In a blog post, Dropbox declared users data will remain secure, but many of the features that attracted photographers to the product -- shared albums, Flashbacks, etc. -- will stop functioning.

There's a famous line from the otherwise forgettable movie "The Godfather: Part III." It's the scene where Al Pacino, playing an aging Michael Corleone (in bad prosthetics and make-up), laments that he can't seem to get out of the family Mafia business and live the straight life. "Just when I thought I was out . . . they pull me back in," he says angrily.

It's an oft repeated mantra of many photographers, particularly Canon shooters: "Canon has the best color science." But is it true? That's up for some debate but a frequently cited selling point for Canon over rival brands is what some believe to be its accurate color reproduction particularly when it comes to skin tones.

Drone photography is here to stay, whether the government likes it or not. That’s one of the messages from an intriguing roundtable discussion piece titled “Those Daring Photographers and Their Flying Machines” in an upcoming issue of Shutterbug magazine.
