    Oberwerth Launches Donau Line of Leather Lens Pouches

    I never heard of Oberwerth but they are a German manufacturer, best known for its high-end leather camera accessories and bags. They just launched their new Donau line of leather lens pouches. The pouches are handmade in Germany from soft cowhide leather. A surface finish provides stain protection and should preserve the natural material's shine for a long time to come. In the interior, the pouches are lined with non-pilling wool felt to keep your valuable glass scratch-free.

    The Donau pouches come in four sizes: S, M, L and XL. The different sizes accommodate lenses of various dimensions but at a width of 9.5 cm/3.74 in and a diameter of 9 cm/3.54. The XL version seems more suitable for a large prime rather than telephoto zoom lenses. The pouches are available now, starting at $150/€139 for the small size. The XL variant will set you back $214/€199. More information is available on the Oberwerth website.

    Popular Photography Closes After 80 Years

    It's a sad day in the photography world—after 80 years, Popular Photography Magazine will be closing its covers and no longer be publishing any content. The first issue hit newsstands in 1937. It was a monthly publication for all these years, but they switched to bi-monthly edition about six months ago.

    The upcoming March/April issue will be the last, and as of Friday, March 10th, no new content will be published on their website, Their sister publication, American Photo Magazine, has been web-only for the past couple of years and it will also stop updating its website as of this coming Friday.

    Both magazines have been issued by Bonnier. Bonnier’s CEO, Eric Zinczenko, made the announcement earlier today via a company-wide email.

    It's sad to see printed publication close because of digital. Having worked in print publication industry, it's very hard to keep up with digital age since reviews, tutorials, content and everything else can be posted with a click of a button. I personally liked receiving magazines in the mail and flipping through the me old school if you will. It's more surprising that they opted to close the site down as well.
