Around the Adoramasphere

Posted in News by Nathan Lee Bush on April 29, 2011

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

On Tech Tock, my post is reproduced, remembering Tim Hetherington, the visual pioneer and photojournalist killed last week in Libya.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I cover a promising new iOS development platform, Push Pop Press, which promises to bring drag and drop simplicity to multimedia book publishing on the iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch; I write about David Byun, the fashion photographer and filmmaker with a deep understanding of light and a broad skillset; and we cover our usual event to do list for photo enthusiasts in NYC.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace brings us a second installment of his interview with Jason McKee and Tomas Guzman on the technical challenges they faced on their short film, Lady Luck case no. 37; Mason Resnick explains the difference between dye and pigment based inks; Mark explains the factors to consider when choosing a lens; he reviews the Sony HD Monitor for shooting video with DSLRs; he shows off the features of the Logan Simplex Plus 750 mat cutter; he delivers a rapid-fire Q&A session covering a variety of topics he’s been asked recently; he interviews children’s photographer Sarah Petty, author of The Joy of Marketing – a business resource for photographers; he reviews two iPad apps: Photoshake, a simple photo editor and Corbis Contributor Gateway, allowing easy photo and release uploads to Corbis.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews Blog, Sandy Ramirez reviews the Pro Optic 14mm f/2.8 budget ultrawide angle lens.

At the Adorama News Desk, Mason contributes his weekly wrap of the week’s photo news, including the new 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor lens; Redrock Micro’s micro3D rig, a relatively low-cost rig for producing cinema quality 3D; and a raft of camera firmware updates being released.
