Around the Adoramasphere is our weekly roundup of the internet goings-on of the Adorama family.

On Tech Tock, Leigh Caraccioli interviews the event director for the Wedding & Portrait Photography International (WPPI), which is coming to Vegas next week.

At the Adorama News Desk the main event was camera news from CP+. The Adorama team rounds up the NikonCanon and Pentax offerings, including the Nikon P300 enthusiast compact, the T3i from Canon and the retro limited edition Pentax K-5; the much anticipted Fuji X100 full details, pricing and release date are announced; Mason Resnick summarizes the highlights of the week in photography news, including new Sigma lenses, a Flashbus update, and new lens partnerships for EVIL mounts.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, Guest author Clayton Combe writes about his impressions working with the new Panasonic pro camcorder, the AF100; I cover the ‘Mirrorless Miracle,’ and argue that the new mirrorless systems like Sony’s NEX or Panasonic/Olympus Micro Four Thirds are fundamentally reordering the photo manufacturing powerhouses; I highlight the simple but striking fashion photography of Fiorenzo Borghi; and we list the week’s New York City photo and video events.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace shows all the features of the The Litepanels MiniPlus light, a very flexible continuous light for location video work; Mark goes into part 4 of his excellent series on DSLR video production by showing basic editing skills; he also reviews PhotoPal, a user-friendly and powerful image editor for the iPad; Finally, Diane Miller has a tutorial on how to assess your progress when adjusting an image in Photoshop.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews Blog, Ryan Brenizer reviews the new Nikon 35mm f/1.4 lens; and Fred Singer explains how to use a green screen for chroma keying.
