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 50-megapixel cameras, upgrading from a phone camera, memorable photos from National Geographic Your Shot and a two-day SanDisk SSD sale.

  • Lloyd Chambers wonders What does 50 Megapixels mean vs. 36 Megapixels?, anticipating 50-Mp cameras from Sony and Canon. He lists eight requirements for a 50-Mp camera.
  • Chris Plante explains Why you should buy a nice camera instead of relying on your phone. Tired of the marginal quality of his iPhone images, he bought a Fuji X100T. He suspects "there are people like me who unwittingly forgot the pleasure of good photography because their phone made things easier and it captured images well enough."
  • National Geographic Your Shot photo community has posted Photos We Remember of "favorite images from the year." The Storehouse production features images that are not your usual award winners.
  • Adorama is having a two-day sale on SanDisk SSDs with a 480-GB drive going for $194.95.

More to come...
