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 new MacBook, smartphone photography suggestions, the Canon EF 11-24mm and cinemagraphs.

  • Terry White evaluates the new MacBook, noting it "feels more like an upgrade to the iPad user that's hit the wall." Derrick Story's perspective is that "the new iCloud/Photos/MacBook vision is for consumer photographers, not serious enthusiasts and certainly not pros."
  • Rad Drew asks, So You've Got It, But Do You Use It? He offers a few suggestions for getting more out of your smartphone. Using it to preview a shot, applying art media filters and editing "real camera" images are among the ideas, complete with a list of recommended apps.
  • In Canon EF 11-24mm f4 vs. Nikon 14-24mm f2.8, Sarah at compares Canon's new wide angle with Nikon's classic in a series of shots at ISO 100 with center point focus. "The Nikon 14-24mm has been regarded for a long time as the sharpest wide zoom available so its pretty exciting to see the new Canon holding its own," she writes.
  • Need a reason to create a cinemagraph? Here are Five Reasons to Use Cinemagraphs in Your Marketing Strategy. The Flixel blog post highlights the company's $199.99 OS X cinemagraph software featuring live masking, real-time preview, fine grained adjustments, filters, 1080 HD output and more.
