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 Billy the Kid, Apple's new iMacs, the reaction to the Canon M10 and a Canon Pro printer rebate.

  • Billy the Kid playing croquet was $2 junk shop find in Fresno, Calif. Croquet was the first sport that women could play on the same terms as men, the article notes. What's it worth? The only other photo of the Kid was sold for $2.3 million in 2011.
  • Steven Levy tells The Inside Story of Apple's New iMacs."Sweating the details," like the sound the Magic Mouse 2 makes when you click it, is what makes Apple "the world's most valuable company." Graham Spencer provides a brief but comprehensive introduction to the new iMacs, the platform of choice for Ctein, Kirk Tuck, Michael Johnston, to name a few photographers. And there's a nice roundup of reviewers' comments in MacRumor's 2015 iMac Reviews.
  • Not much love for Canon's M10. Derrick Story calls it The Mirrorless Selfie Camera We Don't Need. Thom Hogan says Canon Burrows Deeper Into the Mud with "a slightly reworked and simplified EOS M" that nevertheless competes with the Nikon 1 system that impresses no one.
  • Meanwhile, Canon has quietly offered a $200 rebate on its Pro printers through B&H, good through Oct. 31. The rebate is paid with an American Express Reward Card.
