Around the Adoramasphere

Posted in Adorama Rentals by Nathan Lee Bush on September 3, 2011

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

FujiFilm X10 Premium Compact

At the Adorama News Desk, Mason Resnick covers the two exciting new announcements, first the FujiFilm X10, a beautiful new enthusiast compact with a zoom lens to take on the G12/P7000/LX5/S95 and their ilk; and the Samsung NX200 APS-C compact, coupled with four new NX-mount lenses, aimed at the Sony NEX-5N/Olympus E-P3.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace guides you through the amazing non-destructive world of Smart Objects in Photoshop; Bryan Peterson explains how to use reflective surfaces in your photographs as a compositional tool, while Allen Rokach and Anne Millman explain some of the complexities and give tips on photographing through glass; Tamara Lackey interviews former Wedding photographer Kevin Kubota on why he’s leaving that market segment for commercial photography; and Bryan Peterson explains how to add an element of interest in the foreground in wide angle photography.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews blog, Mason has a hands-on review of the boundary-pushing and ever expanding Ricoh GXR System; Mark reviews the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt Shift Lens; he reviews the Pixlr-o-matic photo effects iPad app; and Fred Singer reviews the Looxcie wearable bluetooth camcorder, which could utterly transform how we record and share our experiences!

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I highlight an amazing new film analysis tool, Cinemetrics, which breaks films down into a variety of measurable statistics and produces incredibly useful dynamic graphic displays of the information;  and we highlight the week’s photography events agenda for the New York City area.

On Tech Tock, Mason takes the new Olympus Pen Mini to the US Open to see how it performs for sports photography; and Mason previews the upcoming lineup of Adorama Workshops in the newly renovated space.
