- The world of the small:
- Lori Nix builds incredibly detailed tabletop worlds and photographs them. Love this little Zeppelin. She gives a behind-the-scenes tour on Cool Hunting. [Via]
- Martin Amm’s captured an amazing shot of a dew-covered bug. [Via]
- Kodak says they’ve shrunk CMOS sensors, squeezing 5 megapixels onto a 1.4 micron device. Meanwhile Sony’s new DSC-W300 brings 13.6 megapixels to point-and-shoots.
- Digital SLRs seem to have an inferiority complex, adding features found on compact cameras. First they got going with live preview (e.g. Sony’s autofocus-friendly version), and now they’re considering movie mode.
- "My pencil is very big and hard." Ahem. Photojojo has a cool idea for making your own photo pencils.
- Leica has launched a rich, immersive Flash experience on their site.
- Can the iPhone be a pro photo accessory? Yep; Ben Long shows how, using iLevel software.
