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 back-to-front lighting setup, DxOMark's numbers, free expedited shipping and a Thanksgiving rental discount.

  • Joe McNally describes building a portrait lighting setup "from the back to the front" in Five Lights, Done Fast. Each decision is nicely illustrated as he builds toward the main light.
  • In Do You Believe in DxOMark?, Thom Hogan looks beyond DxOMark's overall score, suggesting "you can all anguish over small differences in DxOMark measurements, but I'd be surprised that those show up anywhere near as clearly in your images."
  • Adorama is offering free expedited shipping of 1-3 days on most orders over $49.
  • BorrowLenses is offering a 10 percent discount on all rentals through Thanksgiving with the coupon code TURKEYGEAR14. If your rental ends on Thanksgiving Day, you can keep it until Monday, Dec. 1.

More to come...
