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 in-camera Raw editing, the LP742 LightSwitch, the Canon 5Ds's print performance and Inmacus iPhone 6 and 6 Plus lens kits.

  • Derrick Story suggests in-camera editing is Another Reason to Shoot Raw. He compares the in-camera JPEG to a monochrome treatment he concocted in a Fujifilm X-20. Which brings a tear to our eyes when we think of all the editing chops in an iPhone and no Raw capture to play with.
  • Strobist David Hobby calls the $29.99 LP742 LightSwitch "kinda genius." It's a strobe case that unzips into a soft reflector and small bounce card.
  • Keith Cooper's Canon 5Ds Review Through Print Performance compares prints from the 51-megapixel wonder and a Canon 1Ds and Canon 1Ds Mark III. In an interesting twist, he processes the images through Piccure+. "It's a bit of a tough pill to swallow for some photographers," he describes the reactions he got to the prints, "but most people couldn't spot the differences in print quality between good and superb if it fell on them." He can, though.
  • The half-off sale for Inmacus iPhone 6 and 6 Plus lens kits expires July 31. The 18mm HD Wide-angle Lens Kits is $29.95 and for the HD Macro Filter Kits is $24.95. Nice review by Rob Dunsford.
