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 cold weather failures, managing Lightroom's edits, McNally in China and Reichmann's advice to camera makers.

  • Lloyd Chambers discusses cold weather failures of various gear with several afflicted readers, praising Nikon and slamming Sony (on a several fronts as he focuses on the importance of the system you buy into, which includes support).
  • Julieanne Kost explains a poorly grasped concept among new Lightroom users. In Saving Changes to Files in Lightroom she covers edits stored in the database and how to write them back to the file. She doesn't mention it, but there's no need for a sidecar file if your Raw format is DNG.
  • Joe McNally goes Back to China this week. "I've had a window on different worlds there, which has been an education," he writes as he shows off a variety of past images from young gymnasts laughing at how he walks to fashion models that don't crack a wrinkle. There's even a little street life.
  • In No Guts, No Glory, Michael Reichmann suggests camera makers realize "the smartphone has won and that salvation for my company and product line lies with specialization and differentiation and with offering those photographers who are seeking a superior picture-taking experience truly differentiated and therefore desirable products."

More to come...
