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 Africa, a 35mm f1.4 shootout, 10 specialty iPhone apps and a Storehouse update.

  • In Shooting With Just a D7200, Thom Hogan shows the stills he captured in Africa's Okavango Delta using just a Nikon D7200 and a 70-400mm Nikkor. "What you need is a competent camera and lens plus the knowledge of how to use it," he writes. "The D7200 did just fine there." Focus acquisition made the difference.
  • Roger Cicala holds a 35mm f1.4 Shootout between the new Canon 35mm f1.4L II, the Sigma 35mm Art and the Canon 35mm f1.4L I. The new lens with is Blue Spectrum Optics wins.
  • Rob DePaolo covers Ten Of The Best Specialty iPhone Photo Editing Apps, which do things like removing unwanted items from your photo, fixing perspective, simulating bokeh, imitate black-and-white films and that's just four of them.
  • Storehouse has updated its Storehouse app with support for iOS 9. "Also," the company said, "we redesigned the entire app to make creating and sharing much simpler." Your project, for example, remains private until you decide how to share it.

More to come...
