The Essentials Of The Affordable Care Act For Freelance Photographers

Let's not kid ourselves, when it comes to health insurance, freelance photographers are in an unfortunate situation.

Canon Issues Recall on More Than 68,000 Rebel T4is Due to Grips Causing Rashes

Are you the once-proud owner of a Canon Rebel T4i DSLR? Has your camera's grip changed from black to white? Have you developed a rash from touching the white grip? Apparently there's at least one of you out there, because Canon has issued a voluntary recall on nearly 68,200 of its T4i DSLRs. As we first reported last month, some of the DSLRs were loaded with too much "rubber accelerator", which can lead to a chemical reaction that causes allergic reactions.

The company issued an advisory at the time and offered free repairs, but is now cooperating with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in issuing the recall -- despite the fact that it has only received a single report of a "minor rash".

Clinical trial leaders Robert MacLaren and Tim Jackson have helped two blind men to partially see again.

The Eatery: A Photo App That Aims to Change the Way You Eat

The Eatery is a new "photo sharing" app that's focused more on health than photography. Instead of being judged on aesthetics photographs are rated based on whether people think the food is healthy or not. Your "photo habits" are also crunched and turned into useful infographics and statistics about how and when you eat, giving you helpful information that you can use to change your eating habits.
