a week in photography

If you’d like to spend less time in Photoshop you need to get everything right in the camera, and that includes your white balance. This week we offer a refresher on how to achieve perfect colour every time. Elsewhere in the issue there’s a bit of an animal theme, starting with the stunning winners of our Animal Magic round of APOY 2019, and continuing with our expert tips for photographing badgers. Also, I’m slightly suspicious of anyone who doesn’t like dogs. What’s not to love about man’s best friend? I defy anyone to remain unmoved by the winners of this year’s Dog Photographer of the Year, for which I was delighted to be one of the judges. Finally, Panasonic’s stunning new full-frame mirrorless S1, tested this week, may not be…

online picture of the week

Baby Zoe by Nick Phipps Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Tamron 85mm f/1.8, 1/160sec at f/2.5, ISO 100 THIS cute baby picture was uploaded to our Facebook page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Nick Phipps. He tells us, ‘Newborn and baby photography is my passion. This portrait of baby Zoe was taken in the studio with a single strobe and octabox as part of a project to document her first year. I wanted to keep the tones neutral, drawing attention to her eyes and emphasising her inquisitive facial expressions. They say the eyes are the window to the soul and I think that is definitely true on this occasion.' © NICK PHIPPS IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…

smallest & lightest full-frame unveiled

IT'S BEEN a relatively quiet year for big camera surprises, but Sigma has pulled a rabbit out of the hat by announcing what it claims to be the ‘world's smallest and lightest' pocketable full-frame model. The new Sigma fp mirrorless camera measures just 112.6x69.9x45.3mm, weighs a mere 370g, and is based on a 24.6-million-pixel BSI-CMOS Bayer sensor rather than the multi-layer Foveon chip technology which Sigma has been pushing for years. The fp, which stands for fortissimo pianissimo (‘very loud and very soft'), will take L-mount lenses and has a fixed screen but no viewfinder. It has been designed from the ground up to stand out from its rivals. For example, you can toggle between stills and video mode by moving a slider with one finger. It is also able to…

fast lenses revealed too

IN THE same week as announcing the Sigma fp, the company unveiled three new full-frame lenses designed specifically for the Sony E and Leica L mirrorless mounts: the 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art (£1,459), 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art (£1,459) and the 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary (£549). The 35mm is the fastest AF lens released for L- and E-mounts. The lens is not light (1,090g) or diminutive (87.8x136.2mm) but has some impressive specs. The 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN also offers a fast maximum aperture, but is two-thirds the weight of Sigma's equivalent DSLR lens, at 795g. The 45mm f/2.8 is light and portable at 215g, with a dedicated aperture ring and a 24cm minimum focusing distance. Both E- and L-mount are available to pre-order now.…
