Inside this issue
Finally Canon have 'announced' their contender in the megapixel wars (not before time I hear many people say) and the interesting rumours are that they will be collaborating with Sony to provide the sensor. This can only be good news for both companies as the patent exchange will undoubtedly improve cameras on both sides.
People will undoubtedly say "we don't need more megapixels!" and "but our lenses won't cope!" but the short answer is that the latest megapixel peak has always been a popular camera and this new 5Ds be just the same (until Sony announces theirs!) and our current lenses have been fine on the 7D with the same pixel density and Nikon and Canon film lenses from the 70's have been keeping up with digital sensors so far (and there is always the Otus!)
Anyway - I was going to be writing a few blog updates from Iceland but the reality of travelling around the whole island, taking photographs from dawn to dusk and then staying up for the occasional aurora was a little more tiring than I thought. It's surprising how much mental energy using a camera takes up.
However, Joe Wright has been a star and has been keeping to fires burning whilst I'm away and Dav Thomas has been lightly sautéing the PDF to. So please enjoy this current issue and we'll have more about the latest rounds of the megapixel wars in the next!

Following the recent Meeting of Minds conference, photographer and blogger Malcolm Ragget’s posted his personal summation of the weekend. (http://mraggett.wordpress.com/2014/11/25/onlandscape-conference-craft-versus-art/) David Ward - Eggum Boatshed In a thought-provoking article, Malcolm calls for landscape photographers to broaden their horizons and consider metaphor as a key ingredient of a good photograph. Toward the end of the post he makes a plea for “…delegates to think more deeply more
Photography has inextricably intertwined with my life for nearly 40 years. I am not a photographer in the sense that I make my living out of it nor am I an artist but have used the medium to further enjoy outdoor pursuits and to scratch a technical itch with regards to cameras and technology. Photography was also a very necessary escape from a demanding career. Like any ‘craft’ I have learned how to make my images work, importantly knowing more
