EDITOR'S NOTE
Let me start off this first issue of 2015 by wishing you all the best for the New Year from Canon South Africa. Let’s hope that 2015 is peaceful and prosperous for all. January started with a bit of a jolt for us with a few PowerShot and Legria announcements at the CES show in the US during the first week of the year. The Powershot SX530 HS – with a 50x zoom in such a small package – is the one I’m eagerly awaiting. I’m sure we’ll see that little monster in stores very soon.

Last week I was fortunate to get a break from our wonderful hot sunny weather with a short trip to London. Given that I am lucky enough to have had the chance to shoot with every lens and camera combo going back about 15 years, I have a pretty tough choice when deciding what to take on a trip.

The various choices are quite daunting but I knew I wanted a pro level DSLR with an “L”-series lens in a compact package – to carry with me all the time – while still giving me a bit of scope.

I settled on the new 7D Mark II, which delivers speed and quality in a relatively small camera paired with the EF 16-35mm f/4L lens – again for quality in a small package. Unfortunately I did not have a lot of free time while I was there and the weather was particularly diffi cult when I did, but I was very pleased with my choice. Obviously gear selections will vary depending on environments so we thought we would add a new feature to the magazine going forward: putting the question of gear selection to a variety of shooters. What is the favoured equipment and why; if there was the freedom to choose any gear, what would the ultimate choice be? There’s a whole bunch of different options we can explore and I’m sure it will be insightful – especially if you’re considering expanding your kit or adding to your accessories.

Until next time – keep “Click”ing away.
