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 LensRental staff favorites, lighting the Lambert Puppet Theater, Dreambit and an Olloclip flash sale plus the end of Nikon lens rebates soon.

  • The crew at LensRentals presents Our Top Ten Favorite Products of the Last Ten Years (but really it's the crew portraits accompanying each item that are worth the click). These are staff favorites not necessarily the most rented gear. Some video gear included, too.
  • "All told, we used a total of five flashes, just to splash some light on the background and the various amazing puppets in the picture. None had shapers," Joe McNally explains in Crafting Light about lighting a cramped room at the Lambert Puppet Theater in Ireland.
  • Dreambit is "A new personalized image search engine synthesizes versions of an input photo with Internet queries such as "curly hair," "India" or "1930." Sign up for the beta to change your hair style, the color, your entire look:
  • Through Friday, Olloclip is having a flash sale on a number of its iPhone products with discounts up to 50 percent off.
  • And there's only four days left for Nikon Lens Rebates.

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