et aussi un dossier complet sur l’hybride et le reflex
Envie de switcher pour un hybride ?
Le switch est à la mode! Utilisateurs Canon ou Nikon, fatigués de porter du matériel trop lourd ou attirés par les promesses des appareils hybrides sont de plus en plus nombreux.
Mais si le switch offre quelques avantages, il présente aussi de très nombreux inconvénients et la course aux appareils allégés ne se termine pas toujours bien.
C’est pourquoi la rédaction fait un point le plus objectif possible sur les différentes solutions et sur la meilleure façon de switcher (ou pas!) au meilleur coût et, surtout, en fonction de l’usage prévu car c’est CE critère et lui seul qui devrait guider les utilisateurs.

The Circle of Life | Chris Schmid

Award-winning nature photographer captures stunning imagery of African wildlife; depicting the harsh realities of survival in the wild.

Photographer Chris Schmid set out on an awe-inspiring photography expedition to the dry salt planes of Namibia.

The shoot was part of Chris’ documentary ‘The African Survivors’; filming and photographing endangered species across Africa; looking at how the same animals behaved differently in differently environments.

The enigmatic beauty of the wild is enriched through the lens of Sony’s RX10 III camera; combining an extended 24-600mm 25x super-telephoto zoom with a powerful sensor poised to capture sensational close-up detail.

Award winning photographer Chris Schmid, commented: “I find photographing the local nature in Namibia fascinating; seeing how the animals have adapted their behaviour to be able to survive is a wonderful story to tell through the camera lens. Vegetation and water supplies are a lot more limited in such dry environments, we see that groups of animals split up more often when hunting for their next food source. With precious few places to hide, this makes the territory extremely effective and deadly.”
