welcome to the october 2017 issue of digital camera

WITH the end of the summer in sight, now is the perfect time to get outside and hone your landscape skills. So with that in mind we got in touch with our old friend and colleague, Chris Rutter, who moved to the Isle of Skye a couple of years ago to live the dream. Chris has always been a fine landscape photographer, but it’s been great to see his work evolve while he’s been living so close to the land. He’s put together a wonderful feature that will help you to add drama and mood to your landscape shots, on page 40. You may have also noticed a rather snazzy pair of fingerless gloves that came with this issue – ideal for changing settings and keeping your hands warm as the weather…

Photography news from around the globe WHILE the successor to Nikon’s D810 doesn’t set a new standard for full-frame DSLR resolution – the 50.6MP Canon 5DS/R did that in 2015 – the D850’s combination of still-ultra high resolution, speed and sensitivity raises the bar in performance at this level. The D850’s back-illuminated, optical low-pass filter free CMOS sensor is capable of producing 45.4MP files, while its standard ISO range is 64- 25,600 – a one-stop improvement at the top end over the D810 – which is extendable to an equivalent sensitivity from 32 to 102,400. What’s more, its top shooting speed is seven frames per second, which can be boosted to 9fps when fitted with the optional MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack (with EN-EL18B battery inserted). Such rapid continuous shooting is enabled in…

FIRST LOOK IN THE surface, the E-M10 Mark III is essentially an update of the Mark II with 4K video. Actually, that’s not strictly true: on the surface there have been some notable changes, including a bigger grip and a revised mode dial that gives access to four camera assist shooting modes. It’s also just a touch heavier, although still represents an easy-to-livewith option for travel photos. (The Mark II won our travel camera group test last issue.) It’s under the hood where the significant upgrades have been made. As well as offering 4K recording with frame rates of 30p, 25p, 24p, it gains the TruePic VIII image processor used in Olympus’s flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II. The improved processing performance enables an enhanced autofocus offering – 121 AF points, compared with…

get a shift on!

CREATING a stir at a recent Canon press launch, these three new tilt-shift lenses combine top-end optics and L build quality with a useful close-focusing capability that further extends their creative possibilities. The TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro replace Canon’s current 45mm and 90mm tilt-shift lenses, while the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro offers a new portrait-friendly focal length. All three lenses feature UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements and nine-bladed apertures. They’ll also share the same eye-watering price (almost £2,500) when they debut in November, so the choice comes down to which focal length will serve your photography best. For instance, the standard 50mm lens is the all-rounder, able to correct verticals and perspectives in everything from architecture to product photography. Opt for the 90mm and you get a lens…
