The Stupid Names of Camera Functions

Manufacturers are determined to keep their systems insular so equipment from other brands is incompatible. However, there is one area where this blinkered approach degenerates into silliness and damages photography: the naming of functions. As photographers, we expect that the cameras are designed to be user-friendly. However, since the launch...

Sony A7 IV review

The Sony A7 IV is a mid-range full-frame mirrorless camera with 33 Megapixels, 10fps bursts, 10-bit 4k up to 60p, webcam capabilities and a flip-out screen. Announced in October 2021, the A7 IV arrives three and a half years after the Mark III which changed the market for full-frame cameras. Sony packed everything it could think of at the time into the A7 III, gently ribbing its status as the entry-level model in the series, and priced it aggressively, undercutting rivals. The A7 IV attempts to do the same today, but faces stiff competition, most notably from the Canon EOS R6, so in this video I’ve pitched them head to head, while also including lots of comparisons against the older Mark III for anyone thinking of upgrading.

Sony RX10 II Review

Sony RX10 II Cyber-shot is an improvement to superzoom cameras and the RX series is one of our favorite point and shoot cameras. It boasts a 20-megapixel 1-inch photosensor and a 24-25 mm fixed zoom lens, like its ancestor. It has a large robust body however the EVF has changed and a major update to the recording system – the latest camera is incredibly slow motion shot with a resolution of 1080p and normal 4K video capture. It is not so big as RX10, which persists on the market and is also our Editors’ Option at an enormously lower volume. The Panasonic FZ1000 delivers similar picture consistency and doubles the magnification line-up. More rivalry is now in the market. But it might make sense to invest more to have the RX10 II if you prioritize video recording.

Candid Shot Of Mask-Wearing Lovers Wins 'Photo Of The Week'

A photograph captured on an underground train in Lisbon that was perfectly timed has been crowned our 'Photo of the Week' winner. ePHOTOzine member Uher managed to click the shutter button, and frame the shot brilliantly, just as a young couple embraced for a kiss. What we like even more about this photo is the documentary style as at some point in the future, we may find couples kissing through masks a strange thing to be seeing but yet, it seems all so normal at the moment.

How to use on-camera flash for events

Using an on-camera flash at an indoor event is probably the simplest way to make pictures of small groups look their best. At weddings, parties and fundraisers, friends and families are together for a short time and they are surprisingly willing to be in a photograph. It’s best to use a speedlight, not your camera’s pop-up flash, but the speedlight alone will probably give you faces that are too bright, backgrounds that are too dark, and light that is too harsh.

A Guide to Pottery Photography That Will Make Your Work Pop

Many many moons ago, when I started out my career here as assistant editor to our magazines Ceramics Monthly and Pottery Making Illustrated, there was one rule of pottery photography that would show your work in the best way possible: Photograph your pots on a neutral gradated background with a wide depth of field. Nothing got magazine submissions tossed to the reject pile quicker than a crushed velvet leopard print background. While that rule is still a pretty important one to follow in certain circumstances, some new trends have emerged in the pottery photography area.

Leica M10 Review

The Leica M10 isn’t as a drastic of an upgrade to the M (Typ 240) as that camera was over the M9. But it gives rangefinder devotees a new flagship, with faster processing, higher ISO capacity, and a slightly slimmer design. It does take away one feature included in the Typ 240-video recording-which, regarding Leica, was not something that M shooters are particularly interested in. If you’re a photographer with a love for rangefinders, the M10 represents the best the market has to offer, and its high price reflects its niche appeal and German engineering. Our Editors’ Choice full-frame mirrorless camera is an economical crowd-pleaser, the Sony Alpha 7R II, but if you prefer to stand out from the group, the M10 is a solid choice.
