Le portfolio d’Emilie Chaix Attirée par les contrées lointaines, Emilie Chaix réalise des reportages autour du globe pour les magazines dédiés aux voyages et à la découverte du monde. Originaire du sud de la France, elle devient photographe indépendante après une formation à l’Ecole de journalisme et de communication de Marseille (EJCM) et collabore aujourd’hui avec les revues Grands Reportages, Animan, Lonely Planet ou encore Le Monde. Depuis quelques années, elle oriente plus particulièrement son travail vers des sujets humains et s’attache notamment à photographier les femmes. À travers ses images, elle essaie ainsi de témoigner de l’extraordinaire diversité et richesse des cultures, rituels et croyances d’hier et d’aujourd’hui.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ330 (aka FZ300) is a 12 megapixel bridge camera, which updates the FZ200, and features a bright f/2.8 aperture 24x optical zoom lens equivalent to 25-600mm in 35mm terms, 4K photo and video recording, a high resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF), a vari-angle touch screen and a weather-sealed body.

The Sporty Sigma Takes Top Spot Sigma’s new 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM S wins out
Sigma’s 150-600mm S-class lens is the new champion of reasonably priced super-telephoto zooms. It’s packed with high-end features, has excellent handling characteristics and delivers superb image quality. Indeed, image quality is better than from other lenses on test at focal lengths of around 300-400mm, and also beats that of the Sigma C-class and Tamron 150-600mm lenses in the extended 400-600mm range. The only catch is that it’s about 50 per cent heavier than some lenses in the group– and nearly twice the weight of others.The Canon 100-400mm and Nikon 80-400mm lenses are very good performers but lack the extra reach of the 150-600mm lenses, and they’re more expensive to buy. The Pentax is another classy lens with some exotic features but it’s a bit lacking in sharpness, and there aren’t yet any full-frame Pentax D-SLR bodies to make the most of its full-sized image circle. The Sony 70-400mm isn’t quite as sophisticated as the Pentax, but proved a little sharper at both ends of the zoom range. It’s directly supported by the A99 full-frame body and other A-mount APS-C format cameras,and can be used with Sony E-mount bodies via an adaptor. In the budget stakes, it’s a close call between the Sigma C-class and Tamron SP 150-600mm lenses. They’re both very similar in size, weight and image quality, but the feature set of the Sigma is a little more advanced, making it better value at the price.
