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 KidCam, a Google Glass return, Reid Callanan and Terry White on DNG.

  • The $2.99 KidCam is an iOS app to limit the photos and videos your kids can take on your device in a KidCam library (not your Camera Roll), deleting the oldest to make room. The whole screen becomes the Shutter button,there are Monster overlays and a Shutter Delay feature, too.
  • In Why I'm Sending Back Google Glass, Matt Lake list 10 reasons for abandoning the gadget, noting "for now Glass is a far cry from having the universal appeal of most Google products and services."
  • Jonanthan Blaustein interviews Reid Callanan, the founder of the Santa Fe Workshops, whose 25th anniversary it is. He cites Sam Abell's theory "that we take pictures ahead of ourselves. Meaning, when we make pictures, we don't understand their importance, their significance or their photographic acumen."
  • In Photographers: Why DNG?, Terry White explains gives four good reasons. We've been converting our Raw captures from a number of cameras this year into DNG, a little change in our workflow, primarily for Reason 2 but Reason 3 is a close second.

More to come...
