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 that Beckham catch, Photoshop on a Chromebook, the Samsung NX-1 and LensRentals deals.

  • In Catching the Catch on Camera, N.Y. Times sports desk picture editor Jeffrey Furticella interviews a few of the photographers who captured Odell Beckham Jr.'s fabulous catch Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. Preparation and the greatest NFL catch ever shows a slow motion video and Beckham actually practicing the catch before the game.
  • "All you need is a Chromebook," we overheard a smart young fellow say a while ago. Depends, we mumbled under our breath. But the same technology that's making things like Mix possible on tablets now makes streaming Photoshop possible on Chromebooks. John Nack links to a few reports and his own experience with it in So, what does Photoshop feel like on a Chromebook?
  • Michael Reichmann reports his Samsung NX-1 First Impressions and "a lot to admire about this camera."
  • LensRentals has announced its Black Friday Sale starts Wednesday with 25 percent off all rentals and 10 percent of all used gear. The deals run through Dec. 1.

More to come...
