Also in this issue, you’ll find a review on the new Sony NEX-7. One of the big surprises of late has been the new directions taken by designers of compact, interchangeable-lens cameras. The whole idea was amazing enough a couple of years ago and the little beasts have captured a large chunk of the consumer and enthusiast markets. Now, along comes the NEX-7, a camera that could be regarded as the first compact with a claim to be a truly professional-grade model. Twenty-four megapixels, three-wheel operation and a built-in OLED very-high-definition viewfinder. This camera may bring a number of serious photographers into the compact arena, especially if they own Sony lenses.
Our cover story profiles leading landscape photographer Josh Holko, best known for his stunning images of icebergs and glaciers. Holko travels the world in search of beautiful images and he shares some fantastic tips on what it takes to create a memorable photo.
