In product news, the past few days have seen Canon launch its latest G-series advanced compact camera - the PowerShot G16. Like its immediate predecessor, the G15, it carries 12.1 million pixels though it is designed to shoot 9.3 JPEGS per second.

Meanwhile, ailing Kodak seems to be on the mend and is pulling out of bankruptcy protection.

There's also good news for the campaign to save the Julia Margaret Cameron archive - the export ban has been extended to 8 October 2013.

The prickly issue of copyright theft has reared up again. This time, the winner of a competition run by Samsung has been disqualified following accusations that the image was stolen from another photographer.

Finally, talking of stealing, you may remember a spate of distraction thefts from camera shops across the south east. Well, a man suspected of robbing £6,000 worth of Leica gear has been arrested, according to owners of the London shop which fell victim in May. It is not known whether he is responsible for all the robberies.

That's it for now, see you in a week.
