Tuesday 24 August 2013

Well, here we are here again, I hope you had a great week, and a productive one. So, what's been happening?

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has passed its judgement on what it considers to be the best photographic and audio-visual equipment on the market. EISA is an association of Europe's leading photographic and electronics magazines. Of course, AP is a member and you can read our feature on the EISA awards in the 24 August issue. It's out now.

Back in this country, Epson has settled a long-running patent dispute with a third-party printer cartridge supplier. Read the story and see if you think the outcome is a good thing.

Talking of legal and business matters, it has been revealed that the administrators for Jessops' former owners have chalked up more than £2 million in fees while untangling the financial Gordian Knot left behind by collapse. And, of course, they can't take Alexander the Great's approach to problem solving.

Finally, the photographer whose image of Usain Bolt storming to victory at the World Athletics Championships made worldwide headlines has said he had no idea what he'd caught on camera. If you haven't seen the pic, here it is along with his comments. It is truly a wonderful coming together of moment and circumstance. A marvellous 'visual pun'.

And on that note, goodbye for now.
