Reviews of photography products that enhance the enjoyment of taking pictures. Published frequently but irregularly.
14 March 2013
In this recurring column, we'll 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).
- After a year of development, Swedish startup Memoto unveiled the first photos from its Lifelogging Memoto camera.
- Harry Kachline pointed us to an intriguing use of a smartphone camera with a 3mm ball lens as a microscope to detect parasites in children. The study has the details.
- George Jardine has published Lightroom Location Workflow & Catalog Management in the iTunes Bookstore. The $24.95 differs from the slightly more expensive, 12-video online version by 1) not being able to link to the video chapter markers and 2) not playing on an Apple TV.
- Joe McNally reports from Amazing Manila where he poses a diminutive ballet dancer on the hood of a Jeepney.
- The N.Y. Times Lens Blog honors the 10th anniversary of the Iraq war with a peek at Photojournalists at War, an oral history featuring stories by 39 photographers who shot it. Dexter Filkins's introduces the book along with a few of the images.
- Google announced it will "no longer sell or provide updates for Snapseed Desktop for Macintosh and Windows. Existing customers will continue to be able to download the software and can contact us for support. We'll continue to offer the Snapseed mobile app on iOS and Android for free."
