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 a dSLR-m4/3 camera comparison, the Fujifilm X-T1, an algorithm to remove reflections and Sheldon Serkin.

  • Kirk Tuck muses on the differences between his Nikon 810 and Olympus EMD EM-5 II. He loves "overkill as much as any other red blooded American male who grew up driving big block V8s too fast" but "when I shoot for myself I mostly come right back to the Olympus micro four thirds cameras," he writes.
  • Sam Byford interviews three of the people at Fujifilm behind the X-T1 in The beautiful blueprints for Fujifilm's camera of the future.
  • MIT claims to have developed an algorithm to remove reflections from photos taken through windows. "The ideas here can progress into routine photography," said Yoav Schechner, a professor of electrical engineering at Israel's Technio, "if the algorithm is further robustified and becomes part of toolboxes used in digital photography," he adds. "It may help robot vision in the presence of confusing glass reflection."
  • Kate Wesson interviews Sheldon Serkin, the grand prize winner of the Mobile Photography Awards 2014. "I'm drawn to people and what they evoke in me -- emotion, disbelief, empathy and laughter," he says.
