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 Chinese adoptees, the Vello flash trigger, how an iPhone 6s changes things (plus an ebook on black and white photography) and a BorrowLenses deal.

  • In Chinese Adoptees at Home in America, Rene Silverman covers photojournalist Meng Han's project to document the lives Chinese children adopted by Americans. The teenage years, you won't be surprised to learn, bring with them some interesting changes. "I hope that this project will be a culture bridge," Han said. "Even if Chinese adoptees are Americans, they still have some connections to China."
  • Derrick Story reviews the Vello FreeWave Fusion Wireless Flash Trigger for Canon or Nikon systems, which is on sale for $29.95 until tomorrow.
  • Rob DePaolo upgraded to the iPhone 6s and "it's made quite an impression on me, particularly with regards to photography." He covers the improved 12-megapixel camera, 3D Touch and Live Photos in the piece. And he's written an ebook on iPhone black and white photography, which you can grab for just $7 until tomorrow.
  • Place your seven-plus day order at BorrowLenses by Dec. 18 to start by Dec. 22 using the code BLHOLIDAY2015 to get an additional 10 free rental days.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
