a week in photography

There’s an oft-repeated cliché that the hours around sunrise and sunset are the best for photography, and from midmorning to mid-afternoon you may as well put your camera away. This may be true (a bit) for landscapes, but even then there are exceptions. The obvious truth is that you can take great pictures at any time if you play to the strengths of the prevailing light, as this week’s guide to all-day shooting reminds us (page 16). We also look at the rise of Chernobyl as a destination for adventurous photographers – which is surely set to grow after the brilliant TV drama about the 1986 nuclear disaster. From death and destruction we turn to new life, with tips on capturing the beauty of newborn babies, and a first look at…

online picture of the week

Victory by Robin Pope Fujifilm X-T2, 16-55mm, 1/1600sec at f/2.8, ISO 1600 THIS photograph of a crowd cheering at a sporting event was uploaded to our Instagram page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Robin Pope. He tells us, ‘I shot this at Wembley Stadium after Aston Villa defeated Derby County to be promoted to the Premier League. Naturally their supporters were very happy, so it was all about capturing the emotion and relief on their faces using a wideangle lens to fill the frame. I also managed to get the screen above with the result into the frame, and the Aston Villa team celebrating as well.' © ROBIN POPE IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA…

LAST week, AP attended the launch of Sony's Alpha 7R IV: a full-frame mirrorless camera joining the A7 series. Successor to the A7R III, the A7R IV features the world's first 61MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, 567 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, and a 5.76-million-dot UXGA OLED viewfinder. Over 50 other improvements have been made. During a hands-on studio session with the camera, AP's Reviews Editor Michael Topham captured this portrait using the FE 85mm F1.4 GM lens. Inspected closely at 100%, it shows the outstanding level of detail we can expect when the camera hits the market in late August. See an overview of the A7R IV's new features, including our first impressions, on page 8.…

major fujifilm store to open in covent garden

FUJIFILM is to open a ‘concept experience centre' (aka a big store and product showcase) this winter in London's Covent Garden. Spread over three floors, the centre is designed to promote Fujifilm's photography and imaging brands. The centre's ‘zones' will focus on Instax instant cameras and printers, an increasingly important area for the company, plus specialist areas for the GFX medium-format range and the more mainstream X-series of mirrorless cameras. There will also be a ‘Wonder Photo Shop', where visitors can get ideas for photo printing and photo gifting. ‘From rewriting the rulebook on larger-format cameras with the GFX100, to launching the smallest and most innovative Instax instant camera to date, an incredibly exciting year for Fujifilm has just got even bigger,' said Fujifilm UK's Theo Georghiades, shown above with AP editor…

new fujifilm lenses for x-system and gfx range

FUJIFILM has announced two new lenses for its X-system and medium-format GFX cameras. First up is the Fujinon XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR 5x zoom. Offering an extremely versatile 24-120mm equivalent zoom range, this lens is relatively light and compact, weighing a mere 440g and just under 89mm in length. As well as a constant f/4 aperture throughout the focal length range, it has a minimum shooting distance of 35cm. There are 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical lens elements and an ED aspherical lens that is said to avoid aberrations and curvature. It also offers six stops of image stabilisation. Durability is another selling point; the lens is water- and dust-resistant and can be used in temperatures as low as -10°C. The XF16-80mmF/4 R OIS WR will go…
