sony announces the 61mp alpha a7r iv

Sony has confirmed that a new Sony A7R Mark IV will join its full-frame camera stable. The A7R IV is the latest arrival in the company’s hugely popular A7 line of mirrorless cameras, and follows the A7R III, which was released in 2017. With a new back-illuminated 61MP sensor at its heart, resolution is once again very much the focus here. This pixel count is a significant step up from the 42.4MP A7R Mark III, and ahead of the 47.3MP Panasonic S1R, which has, up until now, offered the highest sensor resolution on a full-frame mirrorless camera. The sensor can also be used in an APS-C crop mode, outputting images at 26MP, while it promises 15 stops of dynamic range. The A7R Mark IV arrives with five-axis image stabilisation built in, and…

sigma unveils its petite full-frame mirrorless fp

Sigma has announced its eagerly anticipated new full-frame mirrorless camera. The Sigma FP measures just 45.3 x 112.6 x 69.9mm and weighs just 370g without a lens, which qualifies it as the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless model. The camera uses a 24.6MP back-illuminated full-frame sensor with no optical low-pass filter. However, while it was excepted that Sigma would employ its Foveon X3 sensor, as in previous Sigma models, it instead adopts the more conventional Bayer colour filter array that’s used in many other cameras. As expected, the camera will also use the L mount, and the model has been pictured with the new 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary that’s also been announced. Sigma is one of three partners in the L-mount alliance, along with Panasonic and Leica. The FP’s sensitivity range…

master location scouting

A critical component in a successful photoshoot is planning. Whether this comprises physically visiting a location to seek out potential images, or simply making contacts and speaking to relevant experts in a certain field before committing to a trip, planning can be seen as the foundation of a stress-free, highly efficient and enjoyable photography session. Location scouting is an aspect that most commonly applies to landscape, travel and possibly event photographers, since those focused on such genres are aiming to capture extremely context-specific images. For these photographers location isn’t merely a backdrop for their subject, it’s often the subject itself, so it’s of great importance to understand the environment and be able to predict conditions to enable the capture of the best possible perspectives. When we first arrive on location, especially one…

use online research resources

1 FLICKR While known as a great platform for showcasing work, Flickr’s search features allow rapid recall of images tagged with appropriate keywords. Functionality is simple, while a map can be displayed if the uploader provided location data. The vast number of image contributors creates an inclusive database of preview images even of lesser-known sites. 2 GOOGLE MAPS Providing interactive remote exploration of even the most geographically distant location, Google Maps and Street View offer a fantastic resource for assessing terrain, checking accessibility and planning potential compositions. Due to coverage and challenges of scouting affordability, these are especially useful for travel and cityscape locations. Save permalinks to maps for instant recall. 3 SOCIAL MEDIA While not necessarily the best choice of photographic repository, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram provide an exhaustive collection of images of a…

find the best location

Finding an ideal location for photography is a far more complex process than many new photographers appreciate. Picking the right place to make images may seem like an obvious step, but there are more considerations involved than simply where to visit and from which direction to shoot your images. Every location is an extensive arrangement of potential frames, overlapping and interacting with one another – finding order in this cacophony of textures, light and colour requires experience, timing and a little experimentation. Deciding on the location itself is a choice that’s determined by numerous factors. On some occasions the decision to make images at a location is merely influenced by personal tastes and an ambition to capture a pre-visualised composition. Perhaps you’ve seen images made at a place by other photographers…
