the fujifilm x100v looks like it’s streets ahead

Fujifilm has announced one of the most anticipated cameras of 2020, the Fujifilm X100V. The premium compact brings a host of upgraded specs and new features, while retaining the X100 line’s attractive retro styling – a combination which makes it quite possibly the perfect street photography camera. The X100V improves on its predecessor, the Fujifilm X100F, with three key new or upgraded features: a new 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans 4 sensor (the same as the one in the Fujifilm X-Pro3), a two-way tilting touchscreen, and a redesigned 23mm f/2 lens. There’s also the hybrid eye-level viewfinder, which recreates the look and feel of classic rangefinders while offering all the control and mod cons of a modern digital camera; along with milled aluminium top and base plates, and a manual dials, this creates the…

drone photography

Camera advances appear to know no limits – just when you think technology has reached its pinnacle, something new finds its way to market and takes the photographic world by storm. And in the last five years, aerial photography with drones has really taken off. This is thanks, in part, to the lightning-fast improvements in technology that have improved drone image quality, camera functionality and the usability and portability of the drones themselves. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a great example to put this into perspective – it folds down to a size small enough to carry alongside your main camera, weighs just 905g and features a 20MP one-inch sensor. It’s something that a few years ago was nothing more than a pipe dream. Drone photography itself can be the stuff…

choose the right drone

As a photographer, your choice A of drone will most likely come down to two main factors: portability and image quality. The smallest drones are, of course, the most portable, and can be almost unnoticeable next to your regular camera kit. But this small and compact size means that the camera and the image sensor will be small – in many cases mobile phone-size. Just as with other photography kit there’s often a trade-off, and it comes down to what’s most important to you. To make a huge leap in image quality, and to enjoy a one-inch sensor, you need to consider investing in mid-sized foldable drones. The image quality won’t be as good as from your stills camera, but it will be the best you can currently get with a…

fly safely and legally

NEW UK DRONE LAWS As of 30 November 2019, new laws came into effect in the UK requiring anyone who flies a drone that weighs between 250g and 20kg to take an online safety test and register as a drone operator and flyer. The cost of the test and obtaining operator and flyer IDs is £9 per year, and the test needs to be retaken once every three years. Once you’ve passed the test, you must display your flyer ID on your drone(s). For more information, visit register-drones.caa.co.uk. For other regions, check your local regulations. If you haven’t flown a I drone before you could be forgiven for thinking they’re complicated, but while there is a lot to learn, they’re so intelligent that they’re incredibly easy to fly. Things can go wrong,…

enjoy an elevated viewpoint

A drone is essentially a flying A camera, so the subjects you can shoot are similar to those you can shoot with a standard camera – the big difference is the perspectives you’re able to achieve. What and how you shoot will depend on the regulations surrounding drone use, which introduce some limitations, and also on common sense and ethics. Wildlife, domestic or farm animals should never be approached with a drone, because animals are often terrified of them. When it comes to shooting people with drones, things become slightly more complicated than with landscapes, because you have to keep a distance of 50m from subjects, and 150m in the case of crowds. With the average drone you’d have to maintain these distances when shooting, and then crop the image later…
