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 Epson SureColor P600, going beyond cameras to photography, masking a large diffuser and an iPad photo frame.

  • Michael Reichmann's Epson SureColor P600 Review begins with the observation that much hasn't changed in inkjet photo printers. But some things have. "The real knock-out to my eyes," Reichmann reports, "and also a couple of knowledgeable observers who I showed prints to is the increased D-Max of the Matte black ink."
  • In The Gamut of Cameras, Thom Hogan lists 10 categories to choose from before suggesting, "Sometimes I think we argue and quibble over small things and small improvements because that's all we have left to argue and quibble about." Cameras aren't a problem any more, he writes, although using them remains a challenge.
  • In Broad Light, Narrow Light, Joe McNally demonstrates using a 40-inch Skylite Rapid Diffuser with masks to get anything from a very large square of light down to a narrow soft beam.
  • iSotto Frame is a Kickstarter project to frame any generation iPad as a digital photo frame. You can also display 5x7 prints in it when you need the iPad for other things.

More to come...
