A week in pho­tog­ra­phy

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

When Tech­ni­cal Editor Andy West­lake fin­ished his test of the Nikon Z7 (page 38) I asked what he thought. ‘The only rea­son I’m giv­ing it five stars,’ he said, ‘is be­cause I can’t give it six.’ High praise in­deed, from some­one who is more dif­fi­cult to please than Goldilocks. It seems Nikon has pro­duced a win­ner, but its field of full-frame mir­ror­less com­peti­tors is look­ing crowded, with Canon’s EOS R draw­ing crowds at Pho­tok­ina, and Pana­sonic, Le­ica and Sigma an­nounc­ing plans to en­ter that mar­ket (see page 6). But enough about the fu­ture, we also go back 3,300 years with the story be­hind the epic task of repho­tograph­ing Tu­tankhamun’s trea­sures. With prac­ti­cal guides on fil­ters, pho­tograph­ing oys­ter­catch­ers, and get­ting the best from Light­room we’ve got some­thing for ev­ery­one. Nigel Ather­ton, Editor
