Posted in News by Nathan Lee Bush on January 2, 2012

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

the New QXD Memory Card standard

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace delivers some tips on working with models; and Bryan Peterson returns to his beloved junkyard to find compelling images amidst the rubble.

At the Adorama News Desk, a new Twitter contest to win a Canon T3i is announced; and the Compact Flash Association announces its next generation memory format, QXD.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews blog, Mark reviews the latest Sigma lenses for Nikon and Canon DSLRs; and Mark reviews two iPad apps, Storyboard Composer HD, a buggy but promising animated storyboarding app, and an intelligent photo frame slideshow app, DigiHub HD.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I predict the arrival of Siri-like voice control on cameras, and how natural language control might be useful to pros; I wrote about a cool and affordable service that helps you track down your lost or stolen camera using its serial number; and I highlighted the now-renting Hasselblad H4X, the new body which can combine the H4D’s technical sophistication with backs from Phase One.

On Tech Tock, Mason Resnick runs down the top 20 posts of 2011 and makes seven photo industry predictions for the new year; and he gives some advice on telling stories with photographs.
