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 "enthusiast" compacts, the Oscars, a Fujifilm XF 55-200mm teardown and Jane Evelyn Atwood.

  • In Enthusiast compacts have finally come of age, Jeff Keller (whom you may remember from Digital Camera Resource) chronicles his search for a 1" sensor that would fit in a purse (for his mother) and have decent zoom. A year ago there was nothing. But now....
  • Saturday's matinee was about shooting the Oscars so as a followup, USA Today shows off 200 of its best stills in a short highlight video and SFGate has 67-shot slide show of backstage shots by Associate Press photographer Matt Sayles and Getty photographer Christopher Polk.
  • Roger Cicala takes apart the Fujifilm XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 R LM OIS to peek at the dual linear focusing motor and "face our fears and explore the land of Fuji, where things are done differently."
  • Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, will host an artist talk with Jane Evelyn Atwood March 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the Foundation in New York City. Free for members and students, $5 donation requested.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
