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 advanced image recognition software, 1906 fire and quake photos, DxO FilmPack 5 and a BorrowLenses Black Friday deal.

  • The N.Y. Times reports two groups of scientists, working independently, have developed image recognition software "capable of recognizing and describing the content of photographs and videos with far greater accuracy than ever before, sometimes even mimicking human levels of understanding."
  • Bob Bragman scored antique images of the 1906 San Francisco Fire and Earthquake at a flea market and needs help identifying them. We weren't around then or we'd pitch in.
  • DxO has released the standalone version of DxO FilmPack 5, which also works as a plug-in with Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements and Aperture. FilmPack 5 adds 16 new films to make over 80 emulations and now supports Raw files.
  • BorrowLenses is offering 15 percent off on gear rentals through Nov. 30 for orders that ship before Dec. 3 using the code BLFRIDAY14.
