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 the Fuji X-T1, iPhone street photos, frame rates and emergency gifting.

  • Kevin Raber has been Living With The Fuji X-T1, taking it on the road to Chicago, Scotland, Amsterdam. "This camera is a natural for anyone to use," he writes, "especially those of us that were part of the film generation and are accustomed to dials and rings."
  • In How Alireza Sheshmani Takes Incredible Street Photos With His iPhone, Kate Wesson interviews Ali about his style and software. When she asks for any tips, he tells her, "I have only one thing to say: One day I stopped being afraid."
  • Microsoft's Simon Cooke claims the Human Eye's Oscillation Rate Determines Smooth Frame Rate, explaining why 24 frames per second feels cinematic while 48 fps looks video and games seem more realistic at 60 than 30 fps. Ocular microtremors wiggle your retina, allowing it to sample at approximately twice the resolution of the sensors.
  • Terry White comes through with some Last Minute Gift Ideas Without Leaving the House. Yep, Emergency Gifting. Just make sure you have ink in your printer.

More to come...
