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 time-lapse photography, Randy Johnson behind the lens, recommended focal lengths for landscape photography and the iPod touch 6 camera.

  • Daniel Brown describes how Former MLB star Randy Johnson shoots for second career. Yep, the Hall of Famer. He shot sports for his college paper at USC where he majored in photojournalism on a baseball scholarship. And now he's going back to his first love. An yes, he's got a Web site.
  • In Make it Long, Michael Reichmann explains his preference for shooting landscape photography with anything but a wide-angle lens. "One of the things that I value about database structured image processing programs such as Adobe's Lightroom or Phase One's Capture One, is that it's trivial to research what gear one used for a certain shot or shots, focal length used and so forth," he points out in reporting his best landscapes have used focal lengths between 35mm and 200mm.
  • Rene Ritchie compares the new iPod touch 6 camera to the last iPod touch and the 8mp, Apple A8-powered iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6. No surprises here.

More to come...
