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 a few lens issues, handling theatrical LED lighting, Lightroom update tricks and Caity Lindskoog.

  • Mike Johnston takes the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens for a spin in the real world. "Mainly, if you like sharp, then this lens you will like," he writes. Meanwhile Lloyd Chambers engages with a few readers on Big and Heavy Sony G Master Lenses, the consensus being smaller if slower lenses would be winners. "My view is that at present, Sigma may be the only company today that could deliver a cost effective high performance f2.8 to f4 line of ultra high performance compact primes," he notes.
  • Theatrical LED lighting can be troublesome (color and banding issues) for both CCD and CMOS camera sensors. In Rolling, rolling, rolling..., Mike Wood explains the problem. The solution is to get the theater techs to adjust the frequency of the LEDs, starting with the lower frequencies.
  • Terry White demonstrates a few new tricks with the Lightroom January Update:
  • Kate Wesson interviews Caity Lindskoog about the "moody landscape photos" she takes with her iPhone around Vancouver, BC. She gives a great tip about using a shoe, too.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
