What's in January-March 2015?
This time we kick off the extensive technique section of EOS magazine with some monochrome magic, looking in-depth at using the black-and-white mode on your EOS camera and also within Canon's own software – DPP. We examine evaluative metering and night modes on your EOS, plus we discuss the issue of using filters on DSLRs and whether they compromise your lens' optical performance. We also attach our Canon EOS to a microscope and explore photomicrography and get creative with off-camera flash.

Attaching your EOS camera to a microscope gives you access to images invisible to the naked eye. Lenses and extension tubes might achieve magnifications up to 10x. With a standard microscope, magnifications from 40x to 600x are possible.
This versatile metering mode can cope with a large range of lighting conditions and is the default on modern EOS cameras. But how does it work? And when do you need to switch to one of the other metering modes? We evaluate.
The world is full of colour and we see in colour. So why is there renewed interest in shooting monochrome? Many EOS cameras offer a monochrome mode and most imaging software lets you turn colour into black-and-white at the touch of a button.
For most of us, this is the time of year when we have to endure more hours of darkness than light. Why not use the time to learn how to take better photographs at night using your camera's special night modes?
Speedlite flash is a creative tool that can transform your pictures. Using a Speedlite flash off-camera opens up a whole new way of creatively lighting your pictures. It is much more than just a tool to add light when it gets dark.
Is it wise to have an extra layer of glass in the form of a filter to protect your lens or will this compromise the optical performance? We examine the pros and cons of UV, skylight and protection filters.
