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 Nikon's sNEF format, an optical bench, a keyboard shortcuts explorer and Griddify to make Photoshop grids.

  • In Digging into Nikon Raw Size S NEFs, RawDigger lists nine differences between Nikon's sNEF and NEF formats before getting into the details.
  • Roger Cicala's Introducing the Optical Bench "is a Geek article," he says, but we got a few laughs out of it, too. You may be surprised to learn that no 70-200mm zoom actually starts at 70mm. But maybe that's not so funny.
  • Waldo Bronchart (aptly named) has developed a Web-based Application Shortcut Mapper, a free visual shortcuts explorer with Lightroom and Photoshop keyboard charts.
  • Griddify is A Tiny Photoshop Panel to make guides and grids. The free extension is only part of the story. The demo is absolutely breath-taking.

More to come...
