In this recurring column, we'll 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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at scouting a location, unearthing diagnostic info from your camera, a slide show sharing service and plans to develop 300-GB optical discs.

  • Strobist David Hobby has posted an intriguing exercise in On Assignment: Scout and a Shoot Pt. 1. Scout out the setting for his latest assignment with him before you see what he did.
  • Thom Hogan has updated his page on Camera Service & Diagnostics Info, showing how to access counts for shutter release and flash use, firmware version and more. We learned we've shot 2,692 images on one camera, using the flash 146 times. And 2,658 of our shots used in-body stabilization.
  • Are you on SlideShare? The service hosts PowerPoint, PDF, Keynote or OpenOffice presentations like a YouTube for slide shows. Search "photograph" to see a few.
  • Sony and Panasonic announced plans to jointly developing a next-generation standard for professional-use optical discs, targeting the development of an optical disc with recording capacity of at least 300-GB by the end of 2015.

More to come...
