Tuesday 25 February 2014

The most immediate news this week is the announcement of the Nikon D4S. It's the company's new flagship 'HD-SLR' with improvements billed as 'enhanced AF, faster performance and better quality still images.

You know how most us leave stuff lying around and it goes missing. Well? sometimes it pays to tidy up. They found that out at the Times recently when historic glass plates of Roger Bannister breaking the four-minute mile were rediscovered by chance during an office clean out. Note to self: A place for everything and everything in its place.

Do any of you have similar stories? Why not let us know - I'm sure there'd be some funny stories to tell – either on the forum or the AP letters page?

Now it's time for a shamelss plug. As photographers we're always striving for the best quality images, either in terms of clarity of rendition or how affecting they are. So, what better way to find the advice and guidance needed to take your craft to an even higher level than AP's Advanced Photography Skills. The latest issue is out now and it's only £3.99. And that, in my humble opinion, is a bargain.

Also available now is the digital version of the latest issue – AP 1 March – which you can download here

Finally, with news that the sales of CSCs seem to be in freefall, Chris Cheesman has taken an in-depth look at the compact system camera market, and how they are perceived by consumers and retailers. You can read his analysis here. However, I'd be interested to read your opinions and you can have your say on the forum.

See you next time.

Do smaller interchangeable-lens cameras have a future after sales plunged more than 30%? And do people really care if they buy a compact system camera or a DSLR?
