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 Hawks on Flickr 4.0, a Hogan Q&A, rigging video gear and a workshop on moving to Lightroom or Photos from Aperture.

  • After a few weeks spent exploring it, Thomas Hawk has a "more detailed post about my ongoing thoughts on the recent update by Flickr." Subjects covered include autotagging, search, the camera roll and uploader, the Flickr mobile app and the new album view.
  • Thom Hogan posted another lengthy Q&A covering everything from phase fresnel lens technology to Sensor Gel Stick sensor cleaning.
  • Kirk Tuck shows you how he rigs the video gear he uses with a Nikon D810. "The Beachtek box is about $170, the Sennheiser system, with lavaliere microphone is $700. The monitor is $349 and the grippy/cagey thing was a little less than $100." He goes handheld with the Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera, though.
  • Derrick Story will host a workshop on Moving from Aperture to Lightroom or Photos Aug. 7-8 at the Digital Story studio in Santa Rosa, Calif. Breakfast and lunch included on both days for $495.
