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 Panasonic GH4, new Nikon Coolpixes, sharpening speed increase in Photoshop CC and a Lensrentals valentine.

  • Panasonic announced its GH4, which resembles the GH3 (particularly for still shooting, although flash sync is now 1/250 and the shutter is as quick a 1/8000 second). Thom Hogan has a quick take on the new video capabilities beyond the 4K sticker and Kirk Tuck, who's happy with his GH3s, evaluates it for a pro workflow.
  • Nikon introduced newn Coolpix cameras, including the compact 24-1400mm P600 superzoom and the pocketable P340 with a 5x zoom and a maximum aperture of f/1.8 and large, 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor. Derrick Story suspects the $377 P340 will give the Canon PowerShot S120 a run for its money.
  • It's the little things. Photoshop CC's January update improved sharpening speed five to 20 times just by letting the GPU handle the task
  • Lensrentals loves lenses (and you) -- but they have an amusing way of showing it. No, that isn't Roger Cicala holding the roses.

More to come...
