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 practical uses for the Dehaze tool, Erik Hageman, Lady Bird Lake and the DxO One.

  • In Practical De-hazing, Pete Collins puts the new Photoshop/Lightroom tool to use in the fight against Plexiglas. Like at the zoo or for aquarium shots or shots from your airplane seat. But in the comments, Steven Gotz says it even works for shots through a chain link fence.
  • Kate Wesson interviews iPhone photographer Erik Hageman. He uses the HDR option in the Camera app for sunsets and Average Camera Pro for "a kind of slow shutter effect during daytime." Not to mention several other apps. But it's the images that will stick with you.
  • In one of his shorter posts, Kirk Tuck talks about using his Nikon D750's HDR mode to capture a beautiful image of Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas. It solved a dynamic range problem he'd never been able to overcome at this particular location.
  • DxO said it has begun shipping the DxO One, its $599 20-megapixel, one-inch sensor, 32mm f1.8 camera attachment for iOS devices. And Kevin Raber just published his DxO One Hands On Review. Always wondered how secure that Lightning connector is.

More to come...
