What's in January-March 2014?
We're loving the light in this issue – the eerie twilight in Robert Birkby's cover shot, which demonstrates his precise exposure in wintry scenes (pages 50-55), close-up flash equipment and techniques (pages 30-35) and getting those sharp catchlights in your portraits (pages 40-45).
In the second of a two-part article we dig a little deeper into Canon's free imaging software, Digital Photo Professional (DPP) to see what other useful features it offers.
Shooting with a wide lens aperture is a creative technique much favoured by portrait photographers. However, it is not without problems if you want to keep the eyes in sharp focus. Andrew Gibson explains his approach to the subject.
What is noise? Where does it come from? Can we ever get rid of it? Is one EOS camera better than another at keeping it at bay? We examine how to deal with noise both in-camera and at a computer.
EOS digital cameras are complex devices. Things go wrong. Parts fail. To help identify a problem, there is a built-in self-diagnostic system. Think of it as a digital doctor. The result of the examination is displayed as an error code on the camera. Here's a guide explaining what you can do if your camera shows an error code.
Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) is a feature of most EOS cameras – but most EOS owners have never heard of it. We explain what it does and how it might be useful – especially for photographers without a computer.
The EF-S lens mount was introduced over ten years ago, but continues to cause confusion for many photographers. Which cameras will EF-S lenses fit? Does focal length change depending on the camera? Which lens accessories are compatible? We clear up the confusion.
Curious to find out the mileage on your EOS camera? We show you how to find out.
