Fujifilm have recently announced a new model to their arsenal of pretty decent hybrid or bridge cameras, namely the SL1000. The big selling point of the SL1000 has got to be the huge zoom capabilities offering 50x optical zoom WITH image stabilisation. Very impressive!

It's a 16 megapixel camera and with the lens you've got an equivalent focal length of 24-1200mm. That's some serious magnification. Unlike a number of Fujifilm's previous bridge cameras, such as the finepix HS30, the SL1000 uses a lithium ion battery pack rather than AA batteries.


 
The annual landscape photographer of the year competition is now open and they're calling for entries to be submitted.

Digital Rev do a series of videos called the "Pro Photographer, Cheap Camera challenge" where they get a well known photographer to try his or her skills using a camera that is beyond it's prime.

In their recent video they ask Vincent Laforet, the pulitzer prize winning photo journalist to give it a go, giving up his Canon 1DX and instead using a Canon A2E film camera. His resulting photos are great.


 
When you're a kid, you're told to keep the camera as still as possible. Good advice - usually. However, if you want to get the most impressive action shots then you'll need to be nimble. This article describes how to use the panning technique.
 
The Art of Photography have produced an interesting video providing an overview of abstract photography, concentrating on a number of the main photographers from the past 100 years or so. It's an interesting watch, and worth having a look if you'd like to find out a bit more about various abstract photography techniques.
 
Finding the right place to take your photos can take a bit of research. Timing is also very important as a sunrise or sunset can have a dramatic effect on the composition. So, here are a few locations that I've found offer great views of New York, London, Hong Kong and Florence.
 

Now this is painful. On Ebay, there's a Canon 600mm super telephoto lens with a Canon 1D Mark 3 attached going for sale at a rock bottom price. Why so cheap, sadly it's all rather badly damaged by salt water.

At current prices, the Canon 1D Mark 3 is about £1,000 just by itself, whereas the Canon 600mm F4 super telephoto is a cool £10,000. That is one expensive accident. Thank god for insurance eh.

Obviously, it would be great if it was possible to make a bit of an income selling photographs. BBC Click recently published a short video about how to sell your photographs online.
