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 an acorn growing up, a trip to Cuba, a Jardine Lightroom deal and dirt on lenses.

  • Neil Bromhall filmed his three-minute Acorn to Oak time lapse over a period of 8 months using a Nikon D300, 55mm macro Nikkor lens and studio flash with growlight:
  • Phase One and Digital Transitions have teamed up with Camera Voyages to offer a rare photo excursion to Cuba between April 16-23 for $4,125.
  • During February, George Jardine is bundling his Lightroom Library DVD with the Lightroom Location Workflow & Catalog Management DVD for $34.95, which is like getting the Catalog Management DVD for free. Details on Amazon.
  • Reader Aaron pointed us to Kurt Munger's Dirty lens article in which an innocent if battered Minolta lens sacrifices its front element to demonstrate "there isn't any noticeable reduction in image quality as a result of normal dirt, smudges and small scratches on the front element."

More to come...
