Reviews of photography products that enhance the enjoyment of taking pictures. Published frequently but irregularly.

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).
- Daniel Mende and Pascal Turbing, security researchers with the German IT consulting firm ERNW, have demonstrated security holes in WiFi-capable cameras. A video presentation from Shmoocon 2013 shows how to mount attacks on a Canon EOS-1D X and how to prevent them.
- Bjanga has released its $4.99 Skala Preview [M] to send "lossless, color accurate image previews to any iOS device." The iOS app is free and, running on multiple devices, can show the same image simultaneously. With Photoshop CS5 or later, you can preview the canvas as you edit.
- Paris 1900-2013 compares antique shots of Paris with current images shot by Audrey Cerdan. The split-image takes a moment to load but lets you live in both worlds at the same time.
- Smith Journal has published Bottled History, a short video featuring Sydney-based ship builder Ray Gascoigne making his ships inside bottles.
