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 Samsung's Galaxy K zoom and S5 camera glitch, adding a strobe to open shade shots, the new Lastolite Skylight Rapid and the state of photo sharing.

  • The Samsung Galaxy K zoom packs a retractible 10x optical zoom, 20.7-megapixel backside illuminated sensor, Xenon flash and optical image stabilization into a, well, phone with a 4.8-inch display. Coming soon. The company has been busy resolving a problem with the camera module in its new Galaxy S5.
  • Syl Arena's Adding Magic To Flat Light takes an open shade shot a bit further with one strobe and tries to match it with a Lightroom edit of the open shade shot.
  • In More Light Modifiers, Joe McNally shows off the new Lastolite Skylight Rapid with a few Nikon SB 910 speedlights.
  • In State of Photo Sharing 2014, Justin Williams tries to find a cloud to stash his images as the various online services consolidate. "I'm now duplicating my entire photo library between Google Photos and Dropbox. If you live near me and are on the same cable modem node, I apologize for your poor service these next few days."

More to come...
