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 optimum digital exposure, a spooky lighting setup, ONA camera bags and Nikon leakers.

  • Bob DiNatale describes The Optimum Digital Exposure. In his ONeZone method, he meters the brightest part of the scene and exposes it so he can adjust it to 99+ percent brightness in his image processing software. "There is only one zone that matters for achieving optimum exposure," he says. "All other 'darker tones' of the scene will fall on the camera's sensor depending on the dynamic range of the scene."
  • In It Started with a Shimmer, Joe McNally describes creating "some spooky, fun pics" to advertise Photo Plus Expo this weekend. " I conjured a little girl," he says, "reading a scary story by flashlight, long after she should have gone to sleep." Then he had to light it.
  • In Swahili ONA means to feel, to believe and to experience with the eyes. So you won't be surprised to learn the company produces high-end camera bags and accessories using full-grain cowhide leather, waxed cotton canvas, and closed-cell foam. We just loved looking at the luxurious pictures.
  • Are you a leaker? In The Big Nikon Leak, Thom Hogan identifies how Nikon D300 owners have migrated to other bodies (and companies) while Nikon mulls over a successor to the D300.
