fujifilm x-s10 announced

Fujifilm has announced a new midrange mirrorless camera that sits just one step below the flagship X-T4 in the Fujifilm range, and is designed to appeal to a broader range of photographers. The new Fujifilm X-S10 has premium build quality and features, but it’s a little smaller than the X-T4, is significantly more affordable, and drops Fujifilm’s trademark shutter speed and ISO dials in favour of a more mass-market and easy to learn mode dial. Previously, Fujifilm’s higher-end cameras have offered shutter speed dials and lens aperture rings (on some, but not all lenses) to recreate the manual controls of traditional cameras, but with the X-S10 the company has acknowledged that some users might find this intimidating. It has responded with a more conventional mode dial, offering the same direct shutter speed…

The German Society for Nature Photography (GDT) has announced the winning photographs from the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Chosen from more than 19,000 entries from 38 countries, Jasper Doest from The Netherlands has won the overall title with with his photo A monkey’s mask, which depicts a snow monkey. Taken in a traditional Japanese sake house north of Tokyo, the image is part of Jasper’s series for National Geographic that sheds light on the relationship between humans and Japanese macaques. For jury member Angel Fitor, the photo is a symbol of our time. “A macaque on stage takes off his mask in front of a fake forest. As the mask slips, the wall of arrogance that we have built between us and nature over many centuries collapses”. View the winners…

the nikon z 6ii and z 7ii are here

Nikon has launched the Z 6II and Z 7II, updates to its top-end Z-series mirrorless cameras, with more powerful processing, twin memory card slots, and enhanced autofocus and continuous shooting capabilities. They seem like they have been around for ever, but the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 were only launched in 2018. The accelerating rate of change in the full-frame mirrorless camera market, however, means that it seems like a lifetime ago. These are evolutions of the original cameras, not brand new models. From the outside, the Z 6II and the Z 7II look almost indistinguishable from their predecessors, but the big changes are on the inside (turn to p50 to find out what’s new and improved). The Nikon Z 6II and Nikon Z 7II will go on sale later this year,…
