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 Death Valley sunset, 4K displays, that Chicago lighthouse photo and a timed script solution.

  • On Luminous Landscape, Kevin Raber describes the adventure of creating his Death Valley Sunset taken with a 28mm lens on a Phase One DF camera with a IQ180 digital back. After using Capture One to manipulate the Raw file before moving to Photoshop and a few Nik Viveza, he printed it on an Epson 9900 Printer on Epson Lustre paper.
  • At CES the $800 28-inch "4K" or Ultra HD monitor is making a splash but Dell has announced a $699 model.
  • Jim Romenesko reports photographer Hohn McCormick's Jan. 23 photo of the lighthouse on Lake Michigan in Chicago is making the rounds as a more recent shot. Nope. "I remember my camera batteries dying," McCormick notes.
  • MacRumors Forums posted a tidy solution to running Dropbox at 1 a.m. every day, which would work for any backup program you might like to run unattended.

More to come...
