Around the Adoramasphere

Posted in News by Nathan Lee Bush on February 19, 2011

On the Gear Guides and Reviews Blog, Guest author Blair Bunting shows how to use a small OctoDome to get the look of an expensive ring light, Jason Schneider tests the innovative Sony A55, an APS-C camera with a translucent mirror technology for faster continuous autofocusing; Mason Resnick has a great list of lenses useful for different kinds of portrait work.

At the Adorama News Desk, Mason highlights the week that was, including a great resource for rangefinder enthusiasts; and Adorama editors announce a contest to win a 3D LED TV, among other prizes, by buying Bon Jovi prints.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, we have two new videos from our interview with Tim Hetherington: he talks about how he uses the internet to build an wider audience than photojournalists usually enjoy, and he explains the boundary between subjectivity and objectivity in photojournalism; Jacqueline Allen shows a very cool feature on certain of our Phase backs, which allows you to marry an old Hasselblad body to a new digital back; we detail why our rental computers, specially configured Mac Pro towers and Macbook Pro laptops, are the most trustworthy in the industry; and we highlight the week’s photo and video events in NYC.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace continues his comprehensive HDSLR video production series, detailing the best compression and encoding methods for video; Mark also sits down with entertainment photographer Jeremy Cowart about his new DVD, Lifefinder; Jules Bianchi & Joy Bianchi Brown have 10 excellent tips on getting the portrait or wedding job during a client consultation; Mark shows how to use the JuicedLink DT454, which lets you attach up to four external mics to your DSLR; and finally he shows off the Digital Photographer magazine app for the iPad.
