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 Chinese Consumer Day Expose, video tips, the Pentax 50mm and Calumet.

  • Nikon has agreed to pull the D600 from shelves in mainland China after a Consumer Day Expose.
  • In Notes from a day of video shooting..., Kirk Tuck lists nine tips you aren't likely to find collected elsewhere.
  • Derrick Story finds the Pentax 50mm is a Sharp Shooter and, on sale at $182, affordable, too.
  • Thom Hogan thinks it's the industry not Calumet in Calumet Closes its Doors. "The average selling price from the manufacturer of compact cameras at the end of 2013 was $120, for mirrorless $230, for dSLRs $432 and for lenses $176. In other words, it's the lower end of the market that's been running through all these stores and keeping the manufacturing plants open. "

More to come...
