the x-t200 is fujifilm’s new beginner-friendly camera

Fujifilm has officially announced its new beginner-friendly mirrorless camera, the X-T200. Th new camera succeeds the Fujifilm X-T100, the current beginner-to-midrange model in the company’s popular X Series line of APS-C cameras. The new model is effectively a Fujifilm X-A7, only with a viewfinder for those who need to compose shots consistently in all conditions. So what’s new? There are three main improvements: a new, 3.5-inch vari-angle touchscreen, significantly improved autofocus, and 4K video shooting that now extends to 30fps, rather than the limited 15fps maximum of its predecessor. Together, these features make it a much-improved video camera, and potentially a great choice as a vlogging camera. Fujifilm has also apparently improved stills shooting here, with the 24.2MP APS-C sensor and processor both tweaked to help reduce noise and boost the continuous shooting…

master low light

Low-light photography is an enchanting genre, capable of producing images that are unrivalled in their emotive power. The deep shadows, directional lighting and strong, cool colour bias can either be unnerving or tranquil, depending on how you approach the creative process. The inverted nature of the lighting can result in unique image styles that are impossible to create at any other time of day – unlike in daylight hours, the foreground can often be brighter than the sky after the sun has set. This high contrast introduces tremendous depth to your shots, while in other circumstances the steep exposure gradients result in light falloff, which limits a sense of context beyond the frame, focusing viewer attention on the subject. While this ‘dark atmosphere’ has its benefits, it’s not always easy to maintain.…

low-light requirements

Digital photography offers several key benefits over film media when it comes to working in low light. The way in which sensors detect and process incoming light differs from how film emulsions react to light. At low intensity, illumination films are susceptible to the phenomenon known as reciprocity failure, when the same total exposure will produce an apparently less exposed image when the shutter is open for a long duration. When working with exposures of several seconds, a calculation often has to be employed to determine how to compensate for this issue, by lengthening the shutter speed further or increasing exposure by some other means. In digital photography this is unnecessary because the exposure rating for an electronic sensor is continuous over time – there’s no falloff in equivalent sensitivity, and…

capture varied lighting

When discussing low-light photography many of us will think of night cityscapes, or landscapes featuring expanses of starry skies. But these are not the most commonly encountered environments. Dawn and dusk can be categorised as low light, as can the ‘blue hours’ of twilight. As these are some of the preferred times for landscape photographers, it’s helpful to understand the key properties of the lighting types, and some of the main challenges they raise. Twilight, referred to as the ‘blue hours’, occurs before the sun rises and again after it has set. While not suitable for all types of photography, for landscape images it’s a perfect time to shoot tranquil scenes, making full use of the cool tones. There’s also usually a wider spectrum of colours on offer, from blues to…

use creative camera settings

Due to the technical challenges associated with working in low ambient light, it’s common for photographers to become preoccupied with mastering the core difficulties of image noise, lengthened exposures and extreme contrasts, at the expense of creativity. This is true for any shooting scenario that tests your abilities as a photographer and forces you to apply your skills in novel ways. These aspects shouldn’t make you hesitant to attempt techniques outside of the normal conditions, defined by the standard ‘rules’ of the photographic genre. While a perfectly exposed night cityscape, with accurate colour balance and exact sharpness from the foreground to the background, would be technically successful, it can still lack the energy and atmosphere of the scene as you experienced it. So, once you’ve mastered the basic camera settings requirements,…
