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 Stephen Orlando's motion exposure, Roger Clark's analysis of the Canon 7D Mark II snesor, Rick DeMint's Portoids and a Phase One photo contest.

  • Stephen Orlando takes light painting a little further with his Motion Exposure. "Using LED lights with custom color patterns and long exposure photography," he explains, "I'm able to tell the story of movement." Kayaking, canoeing, soccer, tennis and more get the treatment.
  • NASA scientist Roger Clark provides "an analysis of noise, dynamic range and full well capacity of a Canon 7D Mark II camera" whose "performance is so exceptional it is a game changing camera in the Canon lineup," he notes. Thanks to Aaron for pointing us to the scientific analysis with a discussion of concepts and methodologies perfect for a rainy day.
  • Or, if you're not in the scientific mood, there's Rick DeMint's Portroids, Polaroids of celebrities which, by being nice, he gets signed on the spot:
  • To enter the Phase One Photo Contest submit "one image that in your opinion defines what the world's best [insert your theme, such as sport, city, love story] is made of?" before Dec. 31. The prize is use of a Phase One camera system for one month.

More to come...
