welcome to issue 72

“Road trippin’ with my two favourite allies, fully loaded we got snacks and supplies...” So begins Road Trippin’ by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which waxes lyrical about the simple pleasures of the life on the road. I love the song and I love road trips, but best of all, I love capturing them on my Nikon. In the Chilis’ case they got lost in the USA, whereas for this issue’s feature, we got lost in the wilds of Scotland. The views may be different, but the feeling of freedom is the same. You can find out how we got on, and what photographic wisdom and images we came back with, on page 26. Someone who did get lost in the USA is the reader behind this issue’s Photo Stories –…

the new nikon d7500 20 things you need to know

The new D7500 slots in between the D7200 and the D500, right at the top of Nikon’s DX-format digital SLR range. It’s designed for keen enthusiasts who want the best possible combination of performance and value, and it would also suit those who are looking to upgrade to a more powerful camera from their first Nikon DSLR. The specs are very exciting. The 20.9-megapixel sensor is one of Nikon’s latest, and the 8fps continuous shooting speed is really impressive for a DSLR in this price bracket. Almost more amazing, though, is the D7500’s incredible maximum ISO setting. We make a lot of comparisons between the D7500 and the existing D7200 and D500 models in this special six-page preview, because this little group of cameras poses some interesting choices. The D7200 is great…

the great nphoto road trip

Landscape photography is all about chasing the light. The quality, quantity and direction of light are what make or break a landscape photograph. If you’re mobile then you have more chance of reaching the right location at the right time. A car will do this, of course, but for true ease of shooting, nothing beats a campervan. I took one around the highlands of Scotland with the aim of capturing some stunning scenery at sometimes unsociable hours. Having the van meant I could park closer to where I needed to be and stay overnight, avoiding a timely trek from a hotel. This meant I was there in the middle of the action when the light was just right. On the go you also learn a lot, and you learn it…

be prepared

For my road trip to Scotland I may have over-prepared, but on the next two pages are some of the most useful things I took with me, in addition to my camera kit. I hadn’t done the trip before, so I bought an Ordnance Survey map of Scotland. It gave me a top-down view of my shooting locations, that I then marked off with a pencil, and it showed the contour lines of the mountains, so I could see what sort of a hike I was in for. An updated view of the world is great when you have power, so I also packed my smartphone with Google Maps, and downloaded some offline maps for those times when there was no signal. I also updated my satnav, so I could rely on…
