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 David Maialetti, Derechoe camera bags, subway candids and the history of photography in a thousand words.

  • "Be patient and wait for things to happen," Philadelphia photojournalist David Maialetti tells Kate Weston in How David Maialetti Takes Great iPhone Street Photos. "I can have two dSLR cameras on my shoulders," he notes, "and I'll still dig into my pocket for the phone."
  • Tamrac has launched Derechoe, a new line of urban camera bags designed for mirrorless and compact dSLR camera systems. Available in three sizes priced at $74.95, $99.95 and $124.95 the bags feature YKK zippers, Fidlock buckles, PVC-free TPU pockets and PU coatings, and optimized lightweight foams.
  • In Naskademini: Lost in Transit, the Leica photographer captures a few images of his fellow commuters on the Tokyo underground rail system with his quiet Leica M. "This is now an ongoing series that I will be shooting more of during my upcoming trip in November," he promises.
  • Want the history of photography in about a thousand words? Thank Matt and Adam at After School Care Programs in Colorado for pointing out The History of Photography and the Camera: From Pinhole to SmartPhones. "Only time will tell how cameras develop from here," the article ends, "but if it's anything like the past two hundred years, we're in for a pretty wild ride." Buckle up!
