zhiyun weebill 2 is a gimbal with a flip-out touchscreen

Zhiyun has announced the WEEBILL 2 gimbal, a ‘reinvention’ of the company’s WEEBILL S DSLR gimbal that adds a flip-out touchscreen and a new ‘industrial’ design. The 2.88-inch flip-out screen is rotatable and retractable, and offers settings adjustments and, when used with the Video Transmission Transmitter AI, a live view of the scene being captured. The WEEBILL 2 is designed for both mirrorless and DSLR camera and lens combinations, such as the Sony A7III with Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, or the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8. The gimbal features Zhiyun’s Infineon ‘two-filter vector-splitting embedded sensor’, with an upgraded motor torque and core algorithm. Shooting modes include one-touch Smart Follow and Timelapse, and there’s also Gesture Control, which can be implemented via the touchscreen without the…

how to shoot seascapes like a pro!

Everyone enjoys a trip to the seaside, but for landscape photographers it’s not just the idea of chips and ice cream on the promenade that whets their appetite. The coast is an exciting location that can provide a huge amount of scope for eye-catching photography – so while you’re on holiday, or having a day out at the coast, don’t forget to take your camera with you. During the summer months, sunrise can be as early as 4.30am in the UK, with sunset as late as 9.30pm, which means you can be out shooting well before the day begins, or you could head out after your evening meal – this makes seascapes the perfect subject for shooting when you’re on holiday, as the early and late golden hours won’t interfere with…

pastel sunset

This long-exposure image was taken with the sun setting to the left of the lighthouse, which has resulted in soft side-lighting and warm pastel hues being spread across the scene. This is a location that’s most commonly shot at low to mid tide, but shooting a long exposure at high tide allowed the sea defences to be used as a lead-in line. Long-exposure images are often converted to black and white to avoid the difficulties of removing the colour casts created by ND filters. But it’s always worth trying to remove the colour cast using the White Balancet tool and Curves in Lightroom or other raw processing software – the results can be stunning.…

capture stunning sky detail without filters

Maintaining sky detail has been a challenge since the earliest days of sensitised glass plates, where emulsions were sensitive to blue light so skies naturally overexposed. Celluloid film was better, but thanks to the invention of ND grads decades ago, maintaining sky detail is easier than ever. But what can you do if you don’t own any ND grads? The great thing about digital photography is that there are multiple ways to maintain sky detail in high-contrast scenes. The easiest, and one of the most effective, is the ‘split raw’ technique. Split raw requires you to capture two exposures of a scene, with one image exposed for the sky and the second exposed for the foreground. These can then be seamlessly blended to mimic the effect of ND grads. The advantage of…

an image of two halves

This image is made up of two shots exposed at nearly three stops apart, with the two blended perfectly. This technique is ideal for both photographers who don’t have ND grads, but also for those who don’t want to carry filters or use HDR at a particular location. Split raw is the closest you can get to ND grads without actually using them. If you’re working with an image that has an uneven horizon, or elements of the scene protruding into the sky, you can use brush opacity and a large soft brush when you mask in the darker sky image to mimic the graduation of an ND grad.…
