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 Exify, Enfojer, 20x24 Studio and the Satorialist.

  • The Iconfactory has released Exify, a $1.99 app and iOS action and editing extension that provides a set of tools to report and edit Exif data with a few extra tricks like watermarking a photo and duplicating it. In introducing the utility, Craig Hockenberry writes, "It has helped me become a better iPhone photographer by letting me check composition and exposure. It also remembers when and where I took a picture. It lets me grab colors out of an image and even helped me understand how the CCD sensor in my phone works."
  • Ilija, Vanda, Peko, Marko, Sebo and a few other people have been building, testing, re-building, improving and polishing the Enfojer smartphone enlarger and app that makes square prints from cropped smartphone captures (or negatives up to medium format) for $174.90 for just the enlarger or $320 for everything (trays tongs, safelight, paper and chemicals).
  • In Champions of a Monster Polaroid Yield to the Digital World, Randy Kennedy chronicles John Reuter's decision to close the 20x24 Studio and the large camera Polariod business Reuter has sustained for 40 years. "These are not materials that were designed to last indefinitely," Reuter said, "and the investment to keep making them would be huge, multimillions."
  • This is why we never miss a day of Satorialist Scott Schuman.

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