On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, Ariel Bardi looks at the work of travel photographer and ARC customer Cedric Angeles; Dave Goldgaber launches a new series highlighting the best kept secrets of ARC gear, with the Flex DSLR remote; Michael Rubenstein plays with the Leica M9 for a week, to see if it can satisfy his wandering eye as he looks to adopt a new system; I introduce our new NYC photo/video events calendar; and I link to a hilarious flowchart answering the not-so-hypothetical-anymore question, “should I shoot for free?” (spoiler: probably not).

Over at the Adorama News Desk, Mason continues his coverage of CES with a Day 3 wrapup; then he takes a step back and evaluats the showstoppers of this year’s expo.

At Tech Tock, Mason Resnick demoes Animoto, a web service that generates slick motion slideshows from your photos to the beat of your chosen music.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace shows the factors to consider when aiming for the exposure sweet spot; Mark also interviews wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer Diana Elizabeth; Mason shows how to avoid dingy-looking snow by overriding your camera’s auto-settings; and Mark shows off the Apple Pages iPad app.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews Blog, Jason Schneider reviews the Pentax K-5 and weighs whether it’s a contender for the APS-C crown; Mark gives a video demonstration of the built-in guide of the Nikon D3100, and recommends it as the best starter DSLR; Fred Singer takes a look at the various gloves that have cropped up to address profusion of touchscreens on our cameras and other gadgets.

    I rented some equipment this past weekend to shoot a Professional racquetball Pro Stop this weekend.

    You guys were great…courteous, friendly, reasonable and totally cool.

    Seems like a fun place to work!
