nikon announces the d6, its olympics contender

Nikon has officially announced its long-awaited new flagship DSLR, the Nikon D6. This is the high-speed professional sports camera that will go head to head with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III at the 2020 Olympics, and could be crucial to both companies’ fortunes in the professional camera market over the next four years. Nikon and Canon are both key contenders in the race to provide the best cameras for professionals, and the D6 and EOS-1D X Mark III are proof of the faith professional photographers still have in the DSLR design – the DSLR vs mirrorless debate clearly isn’t over just yet For hobbyist photographers, the headline specifications of the Nikon D6 might sound positively ordinary. It has a 20.8-megapixel full-frame sensor with fewer megapixels than even a basic DSLR or…

olympus unveils its new mirrorless powerhouse

Like snapping sports and wildlife? The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is one of the fastest, powerful mirrorless cameras we’ve seen for a while – and it comes with a pro-level price tag to match. Like a mini version of the flagship E-M1X, the E-M1 Mark III is a Micro Four Thirds camera for professionals and serious amateur photographers who demand speed, shooting features and portability above all else. Four Thirds sensors like the one in this camera are smaller than their APS-C and full-frame equivalents, which can make them an acquired taste. But on the plus side, they do allow cameras like the E-M1 Mark III to squeeze in shooting features that would otherwise be impossible in a body this small Improved IBIS One of those features is a boosted in-body image…

shoot for the edit

Many people believe that if you don’t capture a good image with your camera, you can fix it later in Lightroom or Photoshop. However, while there’s no doubt that we can do amazing things in post-production, there are many, many reasons why shooting images correctly for the edit makes good sense. Try to think of photography as a chain of events, from searching for a subject and taking the picture, to processing the raw file and finessing the subject in post-production. The final image is only as good as the weakest link in the chain – and this is why we can’t overlook the importance of shooting for the edit. Someone who’s much more erudite than me suggested that a camera is simply a pixel-gathering device, and that we should always…

watch the histogram

It might sound obvious to more experienced photographers, but the most important thing you can do is keep an eye on your camera’s histogram. Whether you’re capturing a single image or a number of elements to composite together, you need to record the best-quality pixels possible. While framing, focus and light are important, perhaps the most important technical skill is not overexposing your highlights. In photography, we are generally unappreciative of pure whites – snow or a white wall, for example, are expected to have some texture and tonality. If you overexpose the highlights, your pixels are recorded as pure white and, while you can darken them down to the required tonality in post-production, you can’t recover the texture – and texture is a quality that’s important for a satisfying image. So,…

capture perfect pixels

1 SET UP YOUR COMPOSITION This capture technique will enable the creation of a series of files that gathers a set of perfect pixels. Begin by using a tripod, and make sure you’re happy with your framing and composition. 2 FOCUS ON CLOSEST OBJECT 2 Begin with focus stacking. Determine the correct exposure for the foreground. Focus on the closest object to the lens (with manual focus or touchscreen in Live View). Take your first exposure. 3 FOCUS IN STEPS 3 Now take a series of photos with the same exposure settings, each time moving the focusing point towards infinity (or the most distant point). Depending on the lens, you may need anything from two to 10 shots. 4 EXPOSE FOR THE SKY 4 In a landscape, the penultimate photo in the series will usually be focused…
