welcome to the december 2016 issue of digital camera

As the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness falls upon us, it’s time again to pack the kit bag and head for the great outdoors to photograph the magnificence of the landscape. To get you started – and help you capture your visual ode to autumn – we’ve put together 21 sure-fire tips and techniques that’ll guarantee winning shots. Turn to page 40 for details.

After revealing the A99 II last month, Sony has unveiled its new rangetopping APS-C mirrorless camera. Sharing much with the A3600, in terms of its AF system at least, the new camera sees the debut of Sony’s in-camera five-axis optical image stabilisation system in its APS-C range, as well as introducing touchscreen AF control. The rear screen also becomes a touchpad when the viewfinder is being used, allowing you to move your thumb across the screen to move the focus point – a useful feature when you’re recording movies and want to shift the focus smoothly between objects. The A3600 features an APS-C sized 24.2 million-pixel Exmor CMOS sensor and offers a standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-25,600, expandable to 51,200 for stills. It can record 4K video (3,840 x 2,160 pixels)…

RARE RED RANGEF INDER With only 79 sets available worldwide and a price tag north of £12,000, the Leica M-P (Typ 240) ‘grip’ by Rolf Sachs is destined to occupy the display cabinets of well-heeled collectors. Each of the exclusive sets, designed by artist Rolf Sachs, features a camera and a Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens, along with a Leica SD 40 flash unit, black cotton carrying strap and hard black outdoor case. You also get a couple of brushes to keep it all clean. Its vivid red ‘ping pong’ trim (made from the same rubber material found on table tennis bats) is matched by red engravings on the shutter speed dial, on/off switch and elsewhere. Each body is numbered on the hotshoe, too. http://uk.leica-camera.com FOCAL POINT Rounding up what’s new and exciting Manfrotto…
