GadgetFlow: Instax Share SP-1 Smartphone Printer by Fujifilm.

Print pix anywhere from your smartphone. $210 smackers. A little strategic duct tape, and you could have yourself a one-piece DIY modern Polaroid (or, form-factor-wise, a Kodak EK6 - remember those?!).

Ars Technica: YouTube shuts down public RSS feeds of user subscriptions.

Random thought with no input … I wonder if the rise of set-top boxes and ilk [Roku, AppleTV, Chromecast, etc.] have something to do with this. Putting their efforts into the greatest payoff. Via Dave Winer on Twitter.

DP Review: Rumors hint at pair of new Canon lenses.

Oh my. The 2.8 on the 16-35 isn’t really all that useful. I’d definitely be interested. The 10-18 … crop-sensor, cheap seat? The older 10-22’s already a stunner.

TechCrunch: Why Apple Wants Beats.

Curious. At first I thought they simply wanted higher quality earbuds. Apparently there’s some other reason behind it. Apple’s been about style *and* substance. Beats seems to lack (in reviews) the substance angle. Maybe they’ll kick up the audio quality, keeping the already-established PR (and pricing scale).  But I’m just shooting from the hip here; no idea.

HiConsumption: The 7 Best Drones.

Uh-huh. Could be wrong, but I have a feeling that the multicopters are easier for beginners, while a conventional helicopter-style layout (main rotor/tail rotor or jet) ends up being better for professional uses.

DP Review: ThinkTank Streetwalker HardDrive Backpack Review.

Scroll down and look at the waist belt. At least it can be swapped out for other belts (padded) … which I’d consider *essential* (adding cost). Load this thing up with that standard belt, you have a medieval torture device.

Gadget Flow: Jimi - USB Port Extension.

Wonderful, except for one little thing. It should have a pass-thru at the back, so you can have two items plugged in (one front, one back). That would be an insta-purchase. Otherwise, I’d just invest in a USB hub.

Photo Rumors: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens (Canon version) tested at DxOmark.

Hmmm. I rented the Zeiss 50mm F2 Makro and liked having an f/22 in addition to half life-size detail work. I’d miss the 1.4 shallow DOF, perhaps. But 800 or so extra smackers’ll buy another lens. 50mm isn’t that compelling a focal range.
