This time we look at The Chinese Photobook, using both Dropbox and Photos for OS X, the Sigma 24-35mm f2 Art lens and helpful Windows 10 videos.

  • Derrick Story describes Using Dropbox and Photos for OS X Together for sharing photos outside (Dropbox) and within (iCloud) the Mac/iOS sphere.
  • Roger Cicala provides A Quick Look at the New Sigma 24-35mm f2 Art Lens. He just has one copy at the moment but plans to do his multiple copy tests in a week when he gets a few more.
  • Scott Hanselman has "been making Windows 10 videos at night to help out friends and family, and because it's fun." There are 14 videos available on his YouTube channel, including this 8-minute tour:
