The Live Stage will have demonstrations giving practical insight into taking beautiful shots of a range of subjects, in character, in action – with lighting
and settings thrown in.
In the ‘Behind the Lens’ Theatre experts will share their tips and tricks across a wide range of photography topics and you can hear all about the latest creative projects,
get insight into specialist photography skills or debate key issues within the photography industry.
Leading brands such as Fujifilm, Hassleblad, Nikon, Olympus and Sony will be there plus manufacturers such as Billingham, Permajet, Lee Filters and Lowepro.
Whether you’re at the beginning of your photography journey or you’re looking to take the next step in your career, the show will offer a range of seminars and demo
sessions (stills and video) to inspire and inform.
Nikon’s 24.2 megapixel D5600
Nikon’s 24.2 megapixel D5600 is an entry level SLR that is compatible with a range Nikkor lenses and has a 5fps shooting speed
and a 39 focus-point silent AF system.
Other features include a fully articulating 3.2″ touchscreen LCD with 1.04M dots. Making it easier to compose at awkward angles, 1080/60p video, and Wi-Fi
with Bluetooth for a constant connection, plus NFC for quick pairing with Android devices.
Known as SnapBridge you can automatically transfer low res images from the camera to your phone or tablet and share them online almost at once. If you want
to email or use them on social media that is now possible but the image is reduced to 2 megapixels.
You can also use the camera with Nikon’s MC-DC2 remote cord, wireless transmitters and receivers and there is a useful touch interface making it far
easier to review your images.
There is a frame-advance bar to speed up toggling through images, as well as a crop function for use during playback. The lens is compact and up to four
stops of image stabilization
Basically, what you have here is a very capable mid-price D-SLR that delivers very good images with polished performance.
