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 Harold Davis on Flickr, SLR Magic's 50mm, a crowdsourced lens review opportunity and Scrivani's food photography.

  • In Flickr and me, and stock photography, Harold Davis reflects on Flickr, Getty and managing rights in the modern era. "I am struck by how hard it can be to decide if something that comes along is an opportunity or a pitfall," he writes.
  • Roger Cicala tests SLR Magic's 50mm APO HyperPrime Cine T2.1 with Aaron Closz. "The results shocked me a little -- not that the Leica [Summicron-M /2.0] was better, but that the SLR Magic lens was actually fairly close to it," he reports.
  • Mike Johnston at The Online Photographer is crowdsourcing an Olympus 17mm f1.8 review. "Let's see what we think," he invites you to contribute. "If this works and you enjoy it, we'll try it with other equipment as well."
  • How does Andrew Scrivani shoot the New York Times food photos? "It's about the lighting," he suggests in this three and half minute video showing him at work. "And feeling it too." He really likes food.

We've also updated our Telling Time story with an iPhone version of the watch. More to come...
