Welcome to the Weekly Recap. Today’s post recaps new and newsworthy items related to photography from around the web for the week ending on October 16.

  1. Facebook releases iPad app: Why should photographers care? Well, apparently, it makes your photos bigger. And bigger, as they say, is better.
  2. Thailand floods, Nikon affected: The floods in Thailand have reached Nikon’s factories there, the company says. Price hikes on Nikon products to follow, rumors say.
  3. Everyone – including 500px – has an app: Just a few days ago, a third-party company released an iPhone app for 500px.com, the popular photo sharing site. Now, the company has its own app for the iPad.
  4. Ouch: This is why everyone needs to wear a GoPro. Yes, we know. It’s textbook schadenfreude.
  5. New Canon and Nikon cameras soon: From the “We’ll believe it when we see it,” category.
  6. And we ask again: Fuji, will it focus? Fuji announces pricing and availability of the “Baby X100″.
  7. More from the “Want it!” category: One camera plate to rule them all.
  8. Film is going away. Again. Really, this time: Chalk this under the “Haven’t we heard this before?” department? For the record, I still shoot some film.
  9. Kickstarter, part 1: Not just for cool iPhone and iPod accessories, Kickstarter can also fund some awesome photographic projects. National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig goes to Chernobyl on a crowdfunded budget.
  10. Kickstarter, part 2: They asked for $20,000. They got just under half a million. Here come the Cineskates.
