The latest issue of Digital Camera is on sale today! It’s a special issue too, as we are celebrating our tenth anniversary. A lot’s happened to the magazine, and the industry generally, over the last 10 years, so we take a nostalgic look back while also trying to predict what the future holds.
Industry trends come and go, but one subject that’s perenially popular is black and white photography. This issue’s cover feature helps you master monochrome skills in a weekend, so it’s essential reading if you’re keen to get the best possible shots in the shortest possible time. There are some great free gifts to go with this special anniversary issue too, including a fold-out guide to wildlife photography, a mini-magazine on lenses and a video disc packed with photo-skills and Photoshop tutorials. Our video disc also has installers for two full programs, Serif PhotoPlus 10 (Windows only) and the VueScan scanning software (Windows and Mac).
Gear-wise, we reveal the best SLRs under a grand. This definitive 14 page supertest helps you find a professional-quality camera at an amateur price, and all the big names are represented. Meanwhile pro inspiration is provided by David Clapp, a highly versatile creative powerhouse who explains why he doesn’t want to become the photographic equivalent of a tribute band!
