On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I interview Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker and renowned photojournalist Tim Hetherington about what it means to be an image maker in a digital world, Dave Goldgaber highlighted the Nanoflash by Convergent Design, a portable recorder that allows you to record uncompressed video from a video camera using its uncompressed 4:2:2 HD-SDI or HDMI output.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace talks with Dave Dugdale about his website; he shows us the Marshall 7 inch portable monitor for DSLR video; Guest author Jason Schneider shows how to use a lightweight lighting setup to accentuate natural light; and Mark contributes part 2 in his HDSLR video fundamentals series, this week talking about lighting for video.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews Blog, Jason provides an in-depth field test of the Lowel Blender, an ingenious portable LED light blending system that lets you match light output from 2800K to 6000k.

On Tech Tock, Mason Resnick writes about Vivian Maier, the incredible street photographer that labored in obscurity for decades, only to be discovered after her death, when a real estate agent in Chicago happened upon her trove of images at an auction.
