welcome to the june 2018 issue of digital camera

WILDLIFE photography is arguably one of the hardest genres to get to grips with, let alone master. Not only does it test your technical skills to the limit, but your patience, tenacity and knowledge of animal behavior will be stretched to the max too.

meet our cover photographer

ANDREW JAMES was shooting on Mykines, a tiny island off the coast of The Faroe Islands – a location known for its abundance of nesting Atlantic puffin in summer. Access is only by boat or helicopter, and to reach the cliff tops you also have to hike up the grassy slopes. The cliffs are exposed to the elements and the wind was making photography quite uncomfortable that day. Andrew hunkered down in a slight hollow and waited for the puffin to land near him. This bird, with a beak full of grass gathered to line its nest, settled briefly close to the edge of the cliff. Andrew framed the shot, making sure his single active focus point was perfectly on the eye of the subject. He was able to fire off several…

rock ’n’ rollei

FIRST LOOK THE Kickstarter-funded Rollei Instant Kamera is the first new Rolleiflex camera in more than five decades. A lot has changed since the last Rolleiflex TLR was launched in the 1960s: while the new camera continues the twin-lens line, with a three-element 61mm aspherical lens on the front and a top-down viewfinder that provides a 1:1 preview of your picture and allows for waist-level shooting, the Instant Kamera takes Fujifilm’s Instax instant film.. The camera features an ambient light meter and the lens can have its aperture set to f/5.6, f/8, f/16, f/22 or ‘Bokeh’, while shutter speeds can be adjusted from 10-1/500 sec. Multiple-exposure and long-exposure modes are available, and there’s also a built-in flash that can be turned off if you want to use the ambient light only for…

flickring out?

Popular photo-hosting and ecommerce service SmugMug now owns the pioneering photo-sharing social network Flickr – although both brands are keen to point out that it’s business as usual for now. Nothing will happen to Flickr accounts at present, says Flickr: “You will continue to log in with your current credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience you are used to. If things do change in the future, we’ll be as transparent as possible about the process and give you as much notice as we can about the issues that will matter to you.” It also states in a blog post that, “There is no plan to merge the products.” Obviously plans can and do change, but SmugMug is just as clear that Flickr will remain a standalone service for…

lenses, baby!

FIRST up in the Laowa line-up is a 4mm f/2.8 Fisheye MFT, a lens that offers a 210-degree angle of view and produces a circular fisheye image on Micro Four Thirds cameras. FIRST LOOK Next up is the Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 FE Zoom, a lens that’s been designed with travel photography in mind and which the company is claiming is the widest zoom available for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras. Next, the Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO delivers a magnification of 2:1 and will be available in Canon EF, Nikon AI, Pentax K and Sony FE mounts. Last in the range is the 17mm f/4 GFX Zero-D, a wide lens for the Fujifilm G-mount. It has a field of view equivalent to 13mm in full-frame format. www.venuslens.net; £TBC/$TBC…
