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 Flickr camera brand counts, a N.J. freelance photographer is arrested when he refuses to give his camera to police, a Lightroom 5 keyboard shortcuts PDF and Evernote Scannable.

  • Flickr has released is 2014 camera brand counts for 100 million users who uploaded 10 billion photos. Canon led with 13.4 percent followed by Apple (9.6 percent), Nikon (9.3 percent), Samsung (5.6 percent) and Sony (4.2 percent). All those numbers were increases over 2013: Canon (13.0), Nikon (8.8), Apple (7.7), Sony (3.5) and Samsung (2.4). But Apple and Nikon switched places, as did Samsung and Sony.
  • Erik Larsen reports a Lacey photographer refuses to turn over camera, gets arrested. Charges were later dropped.
  • Jerry Courvoisier has released a free Lightroom 5 Keyboard Shortcuts PDF.
  • Evernote has updated Evernote Scannable, its free iOS app with a scanning service. The app uses the device's built-in camera to image a document, applies sharpening and makes the text searchable on upload.
