As any photographer knows, high-end cameras with VFR built-in allow for the rate of frames... to be like, you know, varied. And thats a good thing because non-variable frame rates aren't as cool. Good enough, yeah?

Well, no.
Actually, to really get a handle on what VFR means and why it's a super sexy camera feature, you'll have to jump over to Senior Contributor Nayalan's GH4 review, but for now, this:

Shibuya Slow- and Fast-Mo
Nayalan's flagship review of Panasonic's flagship camera includes some great video and fantastic photos for camera heads, but this little bonus is more for general consumption; it's something special.

Suffice it to say, if you know Tokyo's Shibuya ward, this will give you new perspective; and if you do not, you'll either long to visit or run away scared (too many humans!). Enjoy, and maybe like... turn it on for background at a party. 

We're totally doing that.

App-Enabled Geiger Counter for Smartphones
Okay, we were skeptical on this one at first glance, but these devices do exist: what we’ve got here is a plug-and-play Geiger counter that fits any smartphone headphone jack (iOS or Android - no love for Blackberry until they finally give up and accept their Google overlords).
