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 Austin Mann's iPhone 6s review, the Light Camera, a drone Law Brown likes and where the IMG tag came from.

  • Austin Mann has published iPhone 6s Camera Review: Switzerland after shooting 2,121 photos, 55 panoramas, 237 time-lapses and 1310 videos (including Live Photos).
  • Thom Hogan publishes some sobering thoughts in The Light Camera (Almost) Arrives about the multi-sensor, multi-optics, computational camera you can now pre-order for estimated delivery in the middle of next year.
  • In the LA Times report Gov. Jerry Brown approves new limits on paparazzi drones, Chris Megerian points out, "Brown has not welcomed other attempts to place limits on drone use." This bill succeeded by changing "changes the definition of a 'physical invasion of privacy' to include sending a drone into the airspace above someone's land in order to make a recording or take a photo." Expectation of privacy is the fundamental concept.
  • Marc Andreessen had a thought in 1993. In proposed new tag: IMG, he suggested the HTML tag that lets you view images on the Web. And browsing has never been the same since.

More to come...
