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 Scott Kelby's Seventh Anual Worldwide Photowalk tomorrow, why a client might want to know what kind of camera you'll use, an inexpensive high-speed video camera and the redesigned N.Y. Times Lens Blog.

  • There's still time to sign up for Scott Kelby's World Photowalk tomorrow. "It's completely free to participate in the walk," he writes, "but this year we're 'Walking with a Purpose' by encouraging all participants to donate as little as $1 to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya."
  • In Can we talk about lighting for a second?, Kirk Tuck recounts an interesting conversation with a client. While most of the consult was about achieving the look they wanted, the client did ask "what type of camera" Tuck was planning to use because they "wanted to make sure that whatever camera we used was represented in the Raw converters in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom."
  • Graham Rowan has launched a Kickstarter project for the fps1000, an inexpensive high-speed video camera that can capture from 840 to over 10,000 frames per second. He's designed three models with different size sensors.
  • The New York Times has redesigned its Lens Blog with "larger photos in a sleek, easy-to-read format." The new format will feature more videos, too.

More to come...
