Sony has recently announced a new camera to their family of SLRs, namely the SLT A58. This one is meant to replace the previous Sony A37 and Sony A57 models. It’s got a respectable 20MP sensor and can shoot in continuous shooting mode at an impressive 8 frames a second.
Well worth a look is Matthew Albanese’s work titled Strange Worlds. Browsing through his impressive photo collection you could easily be mistaken that these are actual locations rather than tiny sets created in a photography studio. Truly breathtaking.
I stumbled across Alexandre’s online photography course recently. He’s a mountain adventure photographer which I’m reckoning affords him the opportunity to take some truly stunning photographs.
The online courses are very comprehensive covering technicalities such as ISO, metering modes, focal length up to the more subjective areas including composition and where to get inspiration.
Nikon recently announced the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR along with a teleconverter – the AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED – which will boost magnification upto 1000mm.
This sounds like the royalty of super telephoto lenses, and I’m sure will not come cheap, but just imaging the stunning wildlife photos you could take with kit like this.
World press photo has recently published the 2013 photo contest winners. Some amazing photos and well worth a look.
The contest itself has been running for a staggering 55 years, and is a an excellent example of photojournalism at its very best. All the photos that win will tell a story and are always stunning examples of great photography as well as being thought provoking.
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK holds a weekly photography competition where it encourages people to submit their favourite snaps to win a £300 Nikon digital camera.
This seems to be a long standing competition considering they’re currently on week 242, that’s a lot of cameras which have been won!
Nikon has announced it’s newest digital SLR camera, the Nikon D7100. As a successor to the hugely popular Nikon D7000, the D7100 will come with weather sealing (very useful for when it’s raining out) and an impressive 24 megapixel sensor.
In terms of the line-up in Nikon’s SLR range, the D7100 will comfortably sit in between the Nikon D5200, considered to be a consumer level camera and the Nikon D600, the full frame monster.
