Welcome to the second part of our major accessory round-up, this time focussing on higher price points, and including a wide range of tripods, printers and other essentials. Essential Film Holder Kit , £90 If you regularly shoot film with the intention of digitising it, or have a load of old slides and negatives that you’d like to copy, this simple but effective film holder might be a godsend. It’s designed to hold 35mm negatives or 120 roll film above a lightbox for copying using a DSLR or mirrorless camera with a macro lens. It makes light work of copying strips of negatives, and is very much faster than using a scanner. A holder for 35mm slides is an optional extra. Vanguard VEO 2S AM-264TR, £80 This has a different design to most other monopods, with three foldable legs at the base that are designed to provide a tri-stand […]

Photokina has announced it will be indefinitely suspending its Cologne-based event due to ‘decreases in the imaging market’ that have ‘force[d] a hard cut.’ In a press release promoted on the Photokina homepage, Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Koelnmesse (the organizing company behind Photokina) says: ‘Unfortunately, at present, the framework conditions in the industry do not provide a viable basis for the leading international trade fair for photography, video and imaging […] This hard cut after a 70-year shared history was very difficult for us. The trend in this industry, with which we have always had a close and trusting partnership, is very painful for us to witness. But we are facing the situation with a clear, honest decision against continuing this event, a decision to which, unfortunately, we have no alternative.’ The press release goes on to explain that even without the global COVID-19 pandemic, […]

The winners of this year’s Historic Photographer of the Year Awards 2020 have been announced. Owing to the effects of the virus and the limited opportunities for travel, this year’s awards asked photographers to submit images from their archive. Despite the challenges of 2020, the Awards attracted record numbers of submissions, according to the organisers. The Overall Winner was awarded to Michael Marsh for his transfixing capture of the Grade II-listed, Brighton Palace Pier (above). The Historic England category was won by Adam Burton’s aerial view of St Michael’s Church on Somerset’s Burrow Mump (below). The newly-launched Where History Happened category run in partnership with television channel Sky History went to Martin Chamberlain for his sombre shot of the ancient city of Palmyra, captured before the destruction wrought by Syria’s civil war (below). Entries were judged on composition, originality and technical proficiency alongside the story behind the submission and […]

While everyone is talking about the Canon EOS R5, its little brother seems to get less attention. The Canon EOS R6 looks like the same camera, but with less resolution. But the Canon EOS R6 is a complete different camera all together. Let’s have a look at it. Everyone knows about the two full frame mirrorless cameras Canon released. The Canon EOS R5 is getting almost all the attention, with its 45 mp sensor and 8K video capabilities. I reviewed this camera from a photographers perspective some time ago, and was very positive about it. But let’s not forget about its little brother, the Canon EOS R6 . I got an opportunity to review this camera also, and although it hasn’t got the resolution of the Canon EOS R5, it is a very nice and capable camera indeed. The Canon EOS R6, a 20mp mirrorless fullframe camera. Made for […]

‘My sister Isla has autism and depression. She finds it much easier to interact with animals than with the family or people in general. That’s where I got the idea from, to focus on how other people interact with animals, and see how that impacts their mental health. Some don’t have people to talk to, or view themselves as a burden. I wanted to explore a different way to show people how to either help their own mental health, or try to understand someone else’s a bit better,’ explains 20-year-old Evie Scarborough the day after her project, The Pet Effect, triumphed over more than 100 entries in the first Sheffield Park Hill Student Photography Competition themed ‘Your Community’.

I’m a gadget guy. I always appreciate anything that can make my life easier, safer, or more enjoyable. When I recently acquired a Kywoo3D Tycoon 3D printer, I thought it would be an excellent time to make my photography life easier. One drawback of using a tripod gimbal head is that you need to use a nodal rail for lenses that don’t have a lens foot. I keep two in my camera bag, but I occasionally don’t want to take my bag with me on short outings. When I don’t take my bag with me, I have to make sure to grab a spare battery, a nodal rail, my tripod, and my camera. Having the nodal rail and battery with me means I will have to deal with things in my pockets. Large items in your pockets tend to fall out easier when you squat or sit. For a […]

From repetitive hexagons woven into beehives, to the support systems of skyscrapers, shapes are found everywhere. They consist of lines, patterns and repeated forms or they can take on their own unique structure. Intertwined networks of various configurations await the discerning photographer to extract, isolate and capture what could be the outlined silhouette of a wild animal or the iconic form of the Statue of Liberty at sunset. Lens choice, light, color, contrast and shooting angle all contribute to the success of capturing subjects with distinct shapes. Shape plays a dominate role in identifying objects in everyday life. The silhouette of a dormant tree in winter or the outline of an airborne flock of geese at sunset need no explanation as to what they are. Everyone is familiar with these forms, yet in the eyes of some, they’re deemed mundane. As a photograph, they’re often overlooked. But if you […]

The Fujifilm 30mm f/3.5 is the latest lens in their lineup for the GFX series of cameras. But does it stand up to the test? The Fujifilm 30mm f/3.5 is a versatile lens, perfect for fashion work, environmental portraiture, and even street. The lens is equivalent to a 24mm lens on a full-frame camera. Thanks to the larger sensor, the depth of field equivalence is akin to an f/2.8 lens. This is my favorite focal length for fashion lookbooks and a favorite among many for street photography. For this review, I did all of my testing on the Fujifilm GFX100 (lens and camera kindly provided by Fujifilm Canada). To cut right to the chase, if you want a 24mm equivalent lens on the GFX system, this lens is fantastic. But it’s not without its faults. There aren’t many options for 24mm on the GFX system, so it’s a good […]

Pixelmator has announced Pixelmator Pro 2.0. Pixelmator calls it ‘the biggest update to Pixelmator Pro yet,’ and it includes an all-new design, support for Macs using Apple’s new M1 chip, full compatibility with the upcoming macOS Big Sur (macOS 11.0) and much more. Further, the update is free for all existing Pixelmator Pro users. Pixelmator Pro’s editing engine is underpinned by Metal code, allowing the team to take full advantage of the unified memory architecture of the Apple M1 chip. The result is ‘much speedier and much more responsive image editing.’ Tasks relying upon machine learning, such as ML Super Resolution , are up to 15 times faster on the new Macs equipped with the M1 chip. Pixelmator Pro 2.0 remains a Universal app, meaning it runs natively on both M1 and Intel-based Apple devices. Regarding the all-new design, Pixelmator has worked hard to make Pixelmator Pro 2.0 a […]
