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 Cicala's IS recommendations, Bridge CC 6.2, Fred Lyon and two Valentines.

  • In An Update on VR and IS Systems, Thom Hogan asks Roger Cicala about his advice to turn lens image stabilization off before traveling with your gear. It turns out that it's a bigger issue with Canon IS lenses than Nikon VR lenses. In fact, we never turn off VR on our Nikkors and they're just fine.
  • Julieanne Kost discusses the details of the Bridge CC 6.2 update with screenshots of the important new features.
  • Princeton Architectural Press is publishing 12 of 91-year-old Fred Lyon's mid-century photographs of San Francisco in a large-format notecard set called San Francisco: Portrait of a City Notecards, a companion to his 2014 photo-book San Francisco, Portrait of a City 1940-1960.
  • BorrowLenses is offering a $50 discount on rentals over $250 through Feb. 15 when you use the code BLBEMINE. Gotta love that. And while you're waiting for delivery, Kevin Raber's My Love Story should get you in the mood.

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