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 iOS iCloud photography, Story and Tuck on the Samsung NX30, Cicala on 50mm lenses and Henry Grossman.

  • Daring Fireball's John Gruber considers iCloud and Photography while waiting for the Apple Special Event this morning. Drop Aperture, rewrite iPhoto as an iCloud client and backup all your iOS images to iCloud.
  • Derrick Story posts his Samsung NX30 Pros and Cons and a full review at c't Digital Photography. "The Samsung NX30 is a camera that you need to test in person before purchasing," he concludes. Kirk Tuck has a few thoughts on the Samsung NX30, too. He took a walk with the 85mm f1.4. "The EVF is actually showing me the real parameters of the raw file," he discovers.
  • Roger Cicala is Comparing Rangefinder and SLR 50mm Lenses from Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander and Sigma. "I think it's pretty cool that two SLR lenses are able to hang right there with the f1.4 Leica lens, the Summilux," he notes.
  • Last night's broadcast of Sixty Minutes included Capturing History, a segment with photographer Henry Grossman "whose images -- especially of JFK and the Beatles -- remain iconic landmarks of a rich period in American history." Charming man, wonderful images.
