10 March 2015

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 lithium batteries in Canon Speedlites, free business advice, a free 15-inch laptop bag from a high-end bag maker and another discount code for BorrowLenses.

  • Syl Arena recently pointed out at Canon advisory warning against using lithium batteries in Speedlites. They "may become extremely hot" in Canon's strobes, according to the advisory. We've used lithium AA cells in Nikon Speedlights for years without a problem (they last a long time and recycle quickly) but, like Arena, we've been using rechargeable Eneloops for a few years now.
  • At the Copyright Zone, Wisdom From the School of Hard Knocks answers the question, "What is it that you know now that you wish you knew when you first went into the business?" Greenberg and Reznicki, who have a new book coming out any day now, asked their clients, friends and associates. And it's only Part One.
  • Through March 31, Think Tank Photo will send you a free 15-inch laptop case when you purchase any new rolling camera bag directly from them and mail in the rebate form downloadable from their Web site.
  • Another month, another discount from Use code SPRINGAHEAD15 at checkout "for any piece of gear, any size order, for any length of time" to get 10 percent off through March 31.

More to come...
