Are we too ob­sessed with sharp­ness in the dig­i­tal age? Cartier-Bres­son said ‘sharp­ness is a bour­geois con­cept’ but like it or not, pixel-peep­ing means we are all now painfully aware of soft shots, and it can be a deal-breaker for com­pe­ti­tions, stock li­braries or dis­tinc­tions pan­els. For­tu­nately, mod­ern im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion sys­tems in cam­era bod­ies and lenses can en­able you to get crisp re­sults hand­held at leisurely shut­ter speeds– tripods haven’t all ended up at car boot sales yet, but aren’t quite so de rigueur. So, don’t miss An­gela Ni­chol­son’s guide to im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion in this is­sue. We also have a first look at Canon’s EOS R6 mir­ror­less cam­era, which comes with a range of ground-break­ing lenses. The re­lease is an­other rea­son to be cheer­ful, and a sign that mak­ers are re­ally get­ting back on track.
