The 2018 com­pe­ti­tion closes with this is­sue, but the 2019 Fu­ji­film Show­case is wait­ing to test your pho­to­graphic skills. En­ter­ing is easy and you can do it on­line by sub­mit­ting im­ages to cam­er­a­comp@avhub.com.au or send us dig­i­tal files on a DVD or USB drive. In the next is­sue we’ll be an­nounc­ing the 2018 grand prize win­ner who col­lects the high­ly­de­sir­able Fu­ji­film X-Pro2 Graphite kit.


Great use of the ver­ti­cal for­mat and a strong graphic com­po­si­tion cre­ate this vis­ually dy­namic land­scape by Lex Rudd. Colour and tex­ture are also put to ef­fec­tive use here. The lo­ca­tion is the Namib Desert in Namibia, and Lex used a Nikon D7200 D-SLR fit­ted with a Sigma 10-20mm wide-an­gle zoom.

A tra­di­tional slice of Aus­tralian ru­ral life is beau­ti­fully cap­tured by

Chris Carter with the B&W ren­di­tion adding to the at­mos­phere and mak­ing for an even more com­pelling pic­ture (given we’re so ac­cus­tomed to see­ing drov­ing pho­tographs in colour. Chris has aptly ti­tled his pho­to­graph ‘Mov­ing The Mob’, and it was taken with a Sony A900 D-SLR fit­ted with a 24-70mm zoom lens.

do You Want to Win?

It’s all over for the 2018 Fu­ji­film Show­case (but you can start en­ter­ing for 2019 any time you like – see de­tails on this page) and the judges have re­tired to se­lect a grand prize win­ner from the six round win­ners over the last six is­sues of Cam­era. This lucky per­son is go­ing to be the proud owner of a Fu­ji­film X-Pro2 Graphite Edi­tion mirrorless cam­era com­plete with a match­ing XF 23mm f2.0 R WR prime lens. This kit is val­ued at $3699 and has been gen­er­ously do­nated, of course, by Fu­ji­film Aus­tralia. We’ll be an­nounc­ing this win­ner in our next is­sue – Novem­ber/De­cem­ber 2018 – and de­tails of the 2019 grand prize in due course.
