Around the Adoramasphere
Around the Adoramasphere is our weekly roundup of the internet goings-on of the Adorama family.
On this blog, Through the Looking Glass, I parse the lessons of Zacuto’s Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout, which pits the latest video cameras head-to-head; I cover our Sony FS700 event, which highlighted the amazing new 4K-ready camera which brings super slow mo, Full HD footage to the masses; Anna Fischer highlights the Nila Boxer LED Cinema Light, a portable, eco-friendly continuous light similar in output to a 1k HMI; and as always, I round up the week’s photo and video events in NYC.
On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace tackles the problem of trying to get shallow depth of field with studio strobes; Richard shows how to organize time lapse images in Adobe RAW and how to shoot time lapse like a pro; Joe McNally demonstrates how to achieve a TTL transmission at a distance while using colored gels for a dramatic effect; Gavin Hoey demonstrates how to capture subtle motion blur in still photographs; and Tamara Lackey interviews Wedding Photography legend Bambi Cantrell.
At the Adorama News Desk, a slew of new camera announcements were unleashed, including the enthusiast Nikon P7700 compact and Pentax X-5 Superzoom, the first Android-powered camera from Nikon, the Nikon Coolpix S800c; and a few consumer offerings, like the Olympus Stylus SP-820UZ iHS Superzoom, the tiny Nikon Coolpix S01, and the Canon PowerShot SX160 and SX500.
