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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the Nikon D610 dust problem, David Hobby's worst "lighting" mistake, a Sekonic rebate and Derrick Story's new fast lens and shoulder bag.

  • Roger Cicala makes his D610 Initial Dust Assessment on 25 Nikon D610s, concluding the problems "are, indeed, cleared up."
  • David Hobby reveals his "stupidest moment as a lighting photographer" in We All Screw Up. Don't Worry About It. Don't worry, you won't feel too sorry for him when you get to the very happy ending.
  • Sekonic is offering a $50 instant rebate on its touch-screen LiteMaster Pro L-478 series light meters, including the LiteMaster Pro L-478DR or the LiteMaster Pro L-478D, both bundled with an X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Sekonic Gray Balance Card.
  • Derrick Story "spent most of the day Saturday shooting with an OM-D and a 75mm f1.8 lens ... wide open, of course." In Fast Glass he describes how smaller format cameras have given him an option the full-frame format kept well out of reach. He used his just-released $29.95 Wallking Man Shoulder Bag, which hold an iPad as well as camera gear, on his excursion.
