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 automatic but intelligent image optimization, old Nikkors, a USB hub in a paper towel holder and a LensRental discount.

  • Yoav HaCohen demonstrates prototype software for Optimizing Color Consistency in Photo Collections. Imagine editing an image and having similar shots automatically -- but intelligently -- updated to match. Hmmm.
  • Kirk Tuck has been acquiring old Nikon lenses like the 106 f2.5, 55 and 60mm macros and a 25-50mm f4. He finds much to admire about them, including how inexpensive they are. "About the price of a good polarizing or neutral density filter."
  • Terry White discovers the $50 Towel Hub: A USB Charging Station for your Kitchen. You can never have too many USB outlets and your guests will be able to find this one easily.
  • LensRentals will give you 25 percent off any rental between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2, 2015 when you use promo code HOLIDAYS.

More to come...
