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 24-70mm f2.8, shooting wide-angle, Adobe Slate and two Rocky Nook deals.

  • Roger Cicala test the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 ED AF-S VR. Well, 10 of them -- on his optical bench. Nobody else does that. Although, he suggests you ignore optical testing in this case.
  • In Being There -- The Case For Shooting Wide, Patrick Ward suggests a 28mm or 35mm lens "closely approximates how we actually see and experience life." You get the portrait with the landscape, as Ward's images demonstrate.
  • Adobe has released Adobe Slate, its iPad story-telling app, to the Web. The free app automatically syncs projects between your computer and iPad. For more information see Adobe's blog post.
  • Rocky Nook has released its free Rocky Nook's Guide to Flash Terminology and is offering 40 percent off all other ebooks during its Halloween sale using the code SPOOKY through Nov. 5. Take a peek -- your purchase helps support our efforts here.

More to come...
