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. This time we look at a shoot in Mexico, a page from the Strobist Lighting Cookbook, more about Obscura 2 and the LaCie DJI Copilot.

  • In Industrial Strength Imaging, Kirk Tuck describes a recent shoot in Mexico using a Nikon D800 set at ISO 3200-6400, a 24-120mm f4 Nikkor and two manual focus lenses: an 85mm f1.8 and a 28mm f2.8. "I love assignments like this because it's fun to spend a day playing with photo toys and doing continual technical problem solving," he writes.
  • In Shiny Object, Using an iPhone and the Sun, Strobist David Hobby photographs a a complex, mirrored surface using just an iPhone for the camera and the sun as the light source.
  • In Obscura 2 Announcement, Ben McCarthy's explains, "I threw out every preconception I had with Obscura 1, to rethink what a camera app should be." John Voorhees has an Obscura 2 Review.
  • In LaCie DJI Copilot Backs Up Your Photos and Videos, Without Needing a Computer, Daven Mathies details the backup device options before describing LaCie's offering that uses a spinning hard disk rather than an SSD.

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