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 cleaning a lens, what the Nikon D750 service advisory doesn't say, when Micro Four Thirds will equal medium format film and taking inventory.

  • Zach Sutton at LensRentals shows you How to Clean Your Camera Lenses and check for problems. It's one job that does not require expensive gear. But it does help to know what to do when and what not to do ever.
  • In Nikon's D750 Rock and Hard Place, Thom Hogan speculates on the company's latest service advisory because Nikon is "not actually fully disclosing the problem."
  • Ctein answers the question, When Will Micro 4/3 Equal Medium-Format Film?. Having shot both for years and made large format prints from the captures, he says it happened six years ago. Which would make today's medium format digital imaging a diagnostic device.
  • In Home Inventory to Catalog Your Camera Gear, Derrick Story briefly spotlights the $24.99 Home Inventory for OS X. You could do this with Numbers, of course. Or for extra credit build a responsive Web app using MySQL, which comes with OS X, to be able to check inventory on your phone or your desktop. Hmm, anyone interested?

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts. And, if you missed it this weekend, we explain how subscribers can block ads...
