Leading article: Potholes and pitfalls

If it seems to you, as you go about your business, that the road surfaces are more treacherous than they used to be, your bike or car tyres are not deceiving you. The average carriageway, it is reported, is now punctuated by a pothole every 120 yards. That is 30 per cent more than there were just one year ago. The icy winter, repeated utility works and council cash shortages are all to blame.

Cyclotherapy: Road to Ventoux - on camera

A quick post - just wanted to share a few Ventoux-related videos to whet the appetite for the etape (which, with this week's clement weather and light evenings, suddenly feels like it's creeping up on us like a big giant panther).

Gadget of the week - PoGo Instant Digital Camera, Price to be confirmed

Once upon a time, the quickest way to see your snaps was to lug a Polaroid camera with you wherever you went. Then photography went digital and everyone realised that pictures could be perused without printing. Now, though, Polaroid is fighting back with this instant digital camera, which prints 2x3in prints within 60 seconds. Out in March, it's a neat mix of retro and hi-tech.

Is it worth it... The Fujimax Instax Mini

What could be more Seventies than Polaroid-style instant photographs - all flares and pale faces? And since we've already revisited the clothes side it's hardly surprising that the instant camera should be making a comeback too.

Tried & tested: Candid camera

Disposable cameras are easy to use, convenient to develop and so much cheaper than ordinary cameras that you don't need to worry about getting them insured. But with so many on the market it's hard to know which one you should snap up. Six cameras (all with flash) were put to the test by our panel: professional photographer Paul de Delve, artist Lyn Melville-James, art student Adam Amrani, SLR camera enthusiast Melanie Abbott and amateur photographers Elena Macleod and Phillipa Siddons. The cameras were judged on design, functions and instructions; the resulting prints on sharpness, flash coverage and tonal range. The main gripes were baffling diagrams, clumsy controls and inadequate flashes. But for quick snaps the Kodak disposable was a clear winner, while Ilford's black-and-white camera should inspire a whole new generation of impoverished art photographers
