beyond the lens

Cloud City by Beno Saradzic Dubai’s rolling fog is legendary. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to capture on camera, and is notoriously hard to anticipate. You also need permits already in place to access the rooftops. I’ve had endless failed attempts where I’ve either had rooftop access and the fog didn’t show, or I was in bed when it did. Very frustrating!

rumour mill

Canon EOS R6 We’ve heard talk of the R6, Canon’s mirrorless alternative to the 6D series. Said to feature a 20MP sensor, in-body image stabilisation and fast continuous shooting speed up to 20fps, it is also believed to come with dual SD card slots, 4K video at a whopping 60fps and fully articulated vari-angle LCD touchscreen. It may also include a new battery for increased shooting time. canon.co.uk Nikon Z 70 Nikon’s Z 50 appears to be going down a storm, so it’s reasonable to expect the company to expand its mirrorless APS-C line-up. We expect the Z 70 to be a 24MP stills camera with impressive video ability. It will likely feature an improved AF system with the latest algorithms built in, fast 15-20fps capture and 4K filming. We believe it will…
