This week we've seen Calumet US rise from the ashes as Polaroid licensee C&A Marketing rides to the rescue. Over at Olympus things are a little less rosy, as the firm reports disappointing sales of its interchangeable lens cameras.

Following photographers' outrage at Amazon's controversial patent for various studio setups, we've spoken to a patent attorney in order to assess its potential impact and find out what this means for the future. Read an expert's take on the situation.

Lastly, we've also taken a look at six of the most ridiculous lenses that money has ever bought. If you thought that there was no-one out there in the world who would pay more than £1,000,000 for a telephoto lens, then this will almost certainly surprise you.

That's all for this week.
