The reasons aren't hard to fathom.

Nikon just launched the D780, a 24.5MP full frame (aka FX-format) DSLR that's the follow-up to the now ancient, by camera industry standards, D750 from 2014. The Nikon D780 is equipped with a 24.5-megapixel backside-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor that has just slightly more resolution than its six-year-old predecessor, which used a 24.3MP sensor.

It's taken Canon a while, but the company has finally introduced a new flagship professional DSLR: the EOS-1D X Mark III, which adds a bevy of new photo and video features while keeping the camera's resolution essentially the same as its four-year-old predecessor. The 20.1-megapixel full frame Canon 1D X Mark III is the successor to the 20.2MP 1D X Mark II from 2016 and while both cameras look similar, there are many changes "under the hood" to the new Mark III.

Nikon, long favored by pros and advanced amateurs for cameras with state-of-the-art capabilities, has recently targeted budget-conscious photographers with mirrorless models offering an uncommon combination of value and price. A year ago, I reviewed the Nikon Z6, a nimble, full-frame mirrorless camera at a price of $1,995 for the body. While that camera was considerably less expensive than more advanced Nikon models, it’s more than twice the cost of the new Nikon Z50 that we’ll look at today.

We finish the year with a classic tutorial from photographer Julia Trotti who shares her tips on how to pose people who are not models to produce attractive portraits. The video is from a few years ago but the topic might sound familiar because Trotti recently produced a popular tutorial on how to pose, specifically, men who are not models.

Color control of our photographs is at our fingertips. It's there, in the camera, all those choices about how we're going to make the most of color, to modify, intensify, or otherwise change it. We have picture controls, scene modes, special effects, exposure compensation, and white balance just waiting to help us make the most colorful photographs ever, right?

If you want to punch up your landscape photos in Photoshop, the best way to enhance them is to draw out elements that are already there, not try to create something entirely new. (We’ve all seen landscapes that are so heavily edited in Photoshop they look like scenes from another world. HDR effects can be a blessing and a curse.)
