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 that Olympus 17mm crowdsource review, an Olympus E-M5 Mark II panorama, Aseem Agarwala and Manuela Pavesi.

  • The Online Photographer has published its Olympus 17mm Crowdsource Review. And while you're there, Mike Johnston also explains Google's Ann Atkins cyanotype today.
  • Lloyd Chambers stitched a 432-megapixel Olympus E-M5 Mark II panorama. "In spite of blocking the camera/tripod with my car, it seems that that hi-res mode of the E-M5 Mark II is not compatible with even a slight breath of wind (I expected this, pausing for the best lull, but half-pixel shifts of ~2 microns require absolute stillness)," he warns.
  • John Nack reports Aseem Agarwala, the mind behind Photoshop's auto-aligned and blended layers (among other things), has joined Google.
  • Scott Schuman remembers photographer, stylist and longtime Prada collaborator Manuela Pavesi, who passed away Friday.
