sony unveils the rx100 vii with 9ofps burst shooting

Sony has announced the latest update to its popular RX100 compact line, the RX100 Mark VII. The new camera conforms to much the same design as the RX100 VI, including the same lens, which offers a 24-200mm zoom range in 35mm terms and a maximum aperture of f/2.8-4.5. Also on board is a newly developed 20.1MP 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, as well a BIONZ X processing engine and five-axis image stabilization. It arrives with the familiar headline claim of having the world’s fastest autofocus among cameras with a 1-inch sensor, which sounds impressive but means very little in practice, although Sony has squeezed in some of the autofocus wizardry seen in its interchangeable lens cameras in recent months. The system offers 357 phase-detect AF points and 425 contrast-detect points, with both Real-time…

nikon confirms 85mm f/1.8 lens for z mount

Nikon has confirmed the arrival of its NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S, the longest prime lens for the Z mount so far. Nikon claims the optic delivers exceptional sharpness to the corners of the frame at even its widest f/1.8 aperture, thanks to a fresh optical design that sees 12 elements arranged over eight groups, with two extra-low dispersion elements to combat chromatic aberration and Nano Crystal Coat to help banish flare and ghosting. Also helping to control flare and ghosting is a round hood that ships with the lens as standard, while nine-diaphragm blades inside the lens should ensure that bokeh is nice and smooth. While there’s no image stabilisation inside the lens, users of Nikon’s Z6 and Z7 have this in their camera bodies. Right now, the lens is only…

lensbaby comes to eos r and nikon z

Lensbaby has made a name for itself crafting offbeat lens options, with its psychedelic images characterized by sweet spots that quickly blend into trippy, blurred peripheries. The company has done a stellar job of catering for users of various DSLR and mirrorless marques over the years, and now the company is adding two more to its stable, with the announcement that many of its most popular models are now available for the Canon EOS R and Nikon Z full-frame mirrorless mounts. The Portland-based company has confirmed that the Sol 45mm f/3.5, Trio 28mm f/3.5, Composer Pro II, Velvet 56mm f/1.6 and Velvet 85mm f/1.8 will be available in both Canon EOS R and Nikon Z fits. Currently, those wishing to use existing Canon EF- or Nikon F-mount Lensbabies with their newer mirrorless bodies…

balance the light

It’s often assumed that a bright sunny day is great for photography – I can’t count the number of clients I have that get over-excited when they see blue skies. But as seasoned portrait photographers know, depending on how and when we use the sun, natural light can be a portrait photographer’s biggest gift or worst nightmare. Sunlight comes in several forms – from hard to soft, and from bright to diffused, and learning when and how to use different kinds of light comes with experience and experimentation. Natural light can be used alone, or combined with flash to create a wide variety of subtle or striking effects that completely change the look of a scene or a portrait. Here I’m going to explore the different lighting conditions that we face…

be adaptable

Okay, so let’s be honest: if you’re based in England, cloud-free days with blazing sun are rare. A far cry from the predictability of a Californian summer, English summer days can be drab and wet, or scorched by a heat wave. Winters are no less predictable; cloud-free sunny skies give way to overcast and grey – and that can all be in one day! Shooting portraits outside in these conditions makes life a little harder, the unpredictability of the weather means as photographers we rarely know what’s going to happen from one week to the next, let alone over the course of a few hours’ shooting. It’s essential that as a portrait photographer you have a locker of ideas of how to use varying conditions – anything from hard sunlight with…
