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 CES, renting vs. owning your gear, Capture One webinars and GraphicConverter.

  • The Consumer Electronics Show is generating press releases daily now. For an analysis of what's important to photographer's we like Thom Hogan's articles on the new 35mm Nikkor, Nikon D3300 plus Panasonic 42.5 m4/3 lens. We also note Mike Johnston's Slim Pickings at CES focused on the lenses just mentioned.
  • Photographer Kirk Tuck has decided he's "charging for what I know not for what I can buy." In his blog entry today, he observes, "I could buy a Canon 1DX and a 200-400mm f4 lens (complete with red ring...) for the price of a new car or I could rental the ensemble from Lens Rental for a fraction of that, deduct the rental cost instead of depreciating it over years and also, quite possibly, bill the whole thing back to the client."
  • Phase One has published its schedule of Capture One free webinars for January and February, which include sessions with Jaime DeMarco and Francis Hills.
  • Lemke Software has released GraphicConverter 9.0.2 [M] with several new and updated features as well as bug fixes.

More to come...
