Inside Australian Camera magazine issue #420

Talent show
Ever walked into a Camera House store? Well, the staff at each store aren't just good at customer service, they're also top-notch photographers in their own right. Pick up a copy of the latest issue of Australian Camera to discover just how good they are. Maybe they'll inspire you too.

Top views
If you really want to come to grips with just how tight a photography competition can get, you need to check out the winning images from the 2022 International Landscape Photographer of the Year awards. This Australian-curated comp showcases the wonderful views to be had around the world and it could bring out the wanderlust in you.

Pocket rocket
Australian Camera takes its first look at the new OM System OM-5. It's the first camera to officially wear the OM System nameplate, but picks up exactly where the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III left off. Find out how inside the latest issue of Australian Camera. 

Widen your horizons
Full-frame systems are expensive, but camera makers are finding ways to provide more affordable options for their users. And Nikon's 17-28mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens is one aiming to become a part of a Z-series user's kit. Does its lower price point mean Nikon has cut corners? Find out in our full review of the lens.

The big league
It's the first APS-C format camera to hit the 40MP sensor resolution mark, but how does the Fujifilm X-H2 perform in the real world? Australian Camera editor Paul Burrows took it for a test drive and we've got the full review for you to check out.

Twisted tale
Some time in the mid-1990s, some very strange Leicas – supposedly military-issue models from the Second World War – started showing up on the collectors' market. This is the story of the fake Kriegsmarine 'Leica III'.

Also in this issue
We reveal the grand-prize winner of the 2022 Fujifilm Showcase in the latest issue of Australian Camera, and the 2023 competition is in full swing. Plus we put the relatively affordable BenQ PD3205U 32-inch 4K monitor to the test.
