sony announces the a6600 and a6100

Sony has announced two new models in its APS-C mirrorless Alpha line, the A6600 and A6100. As their names suggest, the two appear to sit on either side of the A6400 that was announced at the start of the year, with the A6600 taking the honor of the flagship model in the line. Both new models have much in common with the A6400, including a 24.2MP APS-C sensor and A9-level BIONZ X processing. They also both have a top burst shooting speed of 11fps, with autofocus and auto-exposure working throughout. The pair also match the A6400 in sporting a 3-inch tilting LCD touchscreen. This also supports touch tracking AF in movies, whereby the subject can be keyed with the finger before the camera takes control and stays with it. Both cameras record…

PRO JORDAN BANKS Jordan’s career as a photographer began around 20 years ago when he took a gap year to go travelling. Armed with his dad’s old Nikon FE and a 50mm lens, he entered the Travel Photographer of the Year competition – and won a Highly Commended award! He now runs travel photography tours and workshops in the UK and across the world. APPRENTICE STEVEN MCGRADY Steven started off with Nikon F3 and F5 film cameras back in the day, but his interest was rekindled with the advent of digital when he bought a D70S. A D300 followed, then a D800, he’s since ‘downgraded’ to a D750, which he finds more portable. He works in the City of London, and was keen for tips on shooting the capital’s skyline and its famous buildings.…

technique assessment

On a pleasant afternoon, Jordan met Steven on London’s South Bank area of the River Thames, with the landmarks of the London Eye and Houses of Parliament upstream, and the City of London and its famous skyline (that includes buildings such as the Shard and Walkie-Talkie) down the river. After a coffee and discussion on camera settings in the spring sunshine, the duo set off to shoot from Waterloo Bridge as their first vantage point. The bridge was busy with commuters, and as they set up their tripods, Jordan advised Steven to only fully extend two of his tripod legs. The third was opened just enough to rest on the wall of the bridge in an attempt to reduce obstructions to passers-by. “Would we not just be better off shooting handheld?”…

pro tip live view

Jordan says… Live view is really useful for cityscape photography. While it can be difficult to see the display in bright daylight, in the darker conditions that cities are typically shot in, it’s easy to read. The level display confirms that your horizons are straight, and the touch focus control enables you to select exactly where you want your focus to be. Best of all, pressing the OK button toggles the exposure preview on and off, which simulates the effect of the exposure settings you’ve chosen before you take the shot.…

expert insight crop options

Jordan says… I shoot everything in both portrait and landscape orientations. One may clearly seem better, but I’m looking at what picture editors will be looking for in an image: I don’t want to lose out on a sale – or the book cover – because I didn’t shoot a portrait-orientation version! In addition to this, I will shoot both ‘correct’ and then ‘wrong’ compositions that look too wide, but this is to allow for copy space. I do a lot of work for guide books and publications like National Geographic.…
