Editor’s letter Does size matter?

This month has been a case of little and large formats. Daisy Dickinson, PN ’s head of digital content, had the opportunity to go on safari with Olympus to use its Micro Four Thirds flagship, the OMD E-M1X, while I got to visit Japan for the launch of the Fujifilm GFX100, its 102-megapixel flagship. In old money (pre-digital days), the GFX system is what I would call medium format with an image size of 44x33mm, 1.7x bigger than 35mm, and of course smaller than film medium format, which was based on 120 roll-film and was 6cm wide. Fujifilm has now adopted the term large format for its GFX system on the premise that digital and film are different and the 44x33mm format is large in a digital capture context. It makes sense, but I wonder what Hasselblad, Leica, Pentax and Phase think of that? Of course, it doesn’t really matter how a brandmarkets its products, providing that the products deliver. Here, there is no argument, as Daisy enjoys the benefits of MFT in her report and I enjoy going large in this issue. Gallivanting around the globe is great, but we spendmost our time shackled to our desks, producing content for Photography News and its website, and here you can help us. We’re running a reader survey to fine- tune our content and, with the incentive of an Apple iPad to be won, we would really like to hear what you want from PN . The survey is online, so just visit photographynews.co.uk and fill in the survey, which should only take a few minutes. Thank you in advance for your involvement.

Above Last year’s London Photo 24

At this time of year, here at Bright Towers we are gearing up for our annual reader event, Photo24,afree24-hourphotoshootinLondon. This year, Photo 24 is not happening in its usual form; no organised shoots or contests. But there is an informal Londonmeet-up on 21 June. It’s free, everyone is welcome and if you want to join us, go to facebook.com/groups/ PN2019meet – but hurry! It’s a closed group, so apply to join andwe’ll let you in. We can use Facebook to keep in touch during the meet-up. It’s a free-form event; you can shoot what youwant, for as long as youwant. I’m thinking of shooting through the night and onto dawn, beforef a fewhours sleep and carrying on after that. But it depends on how inspired I feel. It would be wonderful to have meet-ups all around the UK – or the world! A fewyears ago, I Eurostar-ed it to Paris one evening, spent the night shooting and got back on the train the following morning. It was awesome, and I got some decent shots, too. So, just running the idea up the flagpole, if PN planned meet-ups in Manchester/ Edinburgh/Cardiff/Bognor Regis, would you be interested in coming along? Location ideas and expressions of interest (or otherwise!) on an email to me please. Until we meet again…
