sony lauches trio of compact fe prime lenses

Hot on the heels of the high-end FE 50mm F1.2 G Master, Sony has revealed three new prime lenses at the opposite end of the size (and price) spectrum. The Sony FE 24mm F2.8 G, 40mm F2.5 G, and 50mm F2.5 G are compact, highly portable lenses, which between them still take up less space than a regular standard zoom. Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras are remarkably compact; unfortunately, a lot of Sony lenses are quite the opposite, and can make the cameras feel front-heavy and unbalanced. So if you like your lenses as small and portable as your cameras, this trio of new optics should fit the bill perfectly. Not only are they small and light, they’re actually pretty much the same size, and share the same 49mm filter mount. Better still, they’re optimised…

the evscope equinox is a portable smart telescope

Unistellar has announced the eVscope eQuinox, a second-generation attempt at a ‘smart telescope’, with no eyepiece. If you’ve ever looked through a telescope at objects in the ‘deep sky’ then you’ll know that astronomy is all about the art of collecting light. It’s also about standing around and taking your turn to look through an eyepiece. So what if you built a telescope around a camera sensor that produced a clearer, brighter image of a galaxy, nebula, or star cluster the longer you pointed your telescope at it? And then let up to 10 people connect to the telescope by Wi-Fi to view the ever-improving image on a phone or tablet? That’s the idea behind the eVscope eQuinox, which is available to pre-order now for €2,799 (about £2,400 or US$3,340). Essentially an astrophotography…

colour masterclass

Colour is second only to light itself when discussing the core elements of photography. The advent of colour imaging revolutionised the medium – the capture of the colours experienced in the natural world is what sets it apart from any other art form. While black-and-white images have a tremendous potential for conveying narrative, colour imagery is the most honest way we have to record the world around us. In this feature we’re going to help photographers of all abilities to understand the best ways of capturing natural-looking hues accurately. While sometimes colour can be interpreted creatively for dramatic effect, for many subjects there’s little scope for the misrepresentation of colours – the image quickly starts to look false and uncomfortable with even the slightest change. Portraiture is a perfect example of…

introduction to colour harmony

Painters and interior decorators are all too familiar with colour relationships, as these play a critical part in the success of a design or painting. However, while photographers work with colour just as much, we often forget to recognise chromatic interactions in our images. We tend to become preoccupied by sharpness, exposure and overall colour intensity, and we pay less attention to how each colour works with the others in a scene. This can create issues that are overlooked, most often on a local, zone-specific basis within an image. We will often select a composition based solely on the subject matter, and will either shoot at whatever time of day it happens to be, or choose to revisit the location during the golden hours – the best time for soft, warm…

colour through the day

What makes colour photography so fascinating is that the available hues on display change throughout the day – from the deep blues of early pre-dawn, to the stark, top-down light of midday, to the fiery reds and oranges of sunset. By staying at one location and shooting it throughout the day, even with an unchanging composition it’s possible for you to capture completely unique images at different moments. To capture this plethora of colour correctly, it helps to understand what is happening to the light as the sun changes position, and how this affects the way in which the camera perceives the scene in front of it. This can often be far more complex than it first appears. It can be easy to assume what camera settings to choose based on…
