canon unveils its cheapest dslr with 4k video

Canon has unveiled its cheapest 4K-capable DLSR yet, the EOS 250D, or Rebel SL3 in the US. It’s also Canon’s smallest and lightest DSLR yet, weighing 15.84oz/449g. The new camera echoes its predecessor, the EOS 200D/Rebel SL2 in offering a 24.1MP APS-C sensor, which is now partnered with the company’s latest DIGIC 8 processor – the same engine that starred in the EOS M50 and EOS R, among other cameras.That combination delivers a sensitivity range of ISO100-25,600, which can be extended to a setting equivalent to ISO51,200, and also allows for 4K video recording to 24p. The microphone port from the EOS 200D has been maintained, although there’s no space for a headphone socket alongside.The new camera offers a 5fps burst shooting rate, while built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allow…

looks good enough to eat!

PRO VICTORIA CAMPBELLVictoria is a freelance photographer, originally from the UK but now based in Minneapolis, USA. She was introduced to food photography three years ago when she was asked to provide promotional photography for a chain of Italian restaurants. Victoria currently shoots portraiture, travel, floristry and, of course, food for a range of clients.APPRENTICE HANNAH DANIELAfter graduating from university Hannah spent some time working as a photographer on cruise ships, which gave her a good grounding in the craft, and she has also spent some time in India working on photography and videography wildlife projects. Her long-time love, though, is shooting interior design, lifestyle and food photography.…

technique assessment

CHANGE YOUR MODEVictoria says… I almost always shoot in Manual mode because it gives me the versatility to control every aspect of the image, without the camera making decisions for me. I was delighted, then, to see that Hannah was very comfortable shooting in Manual mode, as this would make it much easier to direct her to change camera settings, as and when needed, throughout the course of the day.DIAL IN THE SETTINGSVictoria says… I showed Hannah the base settings I like to work with when shooting. An aperture of f/5 gives a decent depth of field, meaning the foreground and background drop out of focus, but the food remains sharp. I advised her not to go below 1/80 sec handheld, because of the risk of introducing camera shake. We…

hot shot #1

HANNAH SAYSIt took a little time to compose the frame to make the most of the meal in this shot. I tried out several plates and place mats before settling on this wicker mat sitting on top of the character-filled table I was shooting on. I decided to position the food towards the bottom of the frame, along one of the intersecting third lines, and placed the spoon in the dish because I wanted the photo to say ‘Eat me!’. Finally, I tore the bread in half and upturned one slice to convey the sense of a very rustic, hands-on meal.EXPERT INSIGHT WINDOW LIGHTVictoria says… North-facing windows (south in the southern hemisphere) are the best for food photography as they provide indirect light throughout the day, due of the direction…

hot shot #2

HANNAH SAYSAlthough I was mostly shooting with a 24-70mm f/2.8 VR lens, for this shot I swapped to a 50mm f/1.4. There were a medley of vegetables, so that made it quite a busy shot. To simplify things a little I went tighter on the composition, cropping the edges of the bowl, and drizzled some white sauce diagonally across the top. The vinyl backdrop looked perfect set under the dish because it was bright and uncomplicated, but I wanted a little decor, so I spread some edamame beans in the top-left corner to balance the visual weight of the image.EXPERT INSIGHT CONTINUOUS DRIVEVictoria says… Alongside the food we also tried some pouring shots with drinks. As I was pouring the drink off the teaspoon, Hannah used Continuous drive to take…
