From new cameras to citizen journalism – 2012 in Photography
New Cameras that hit the spot in 2012
Nikon pushed out the Nikon D800/E & Nikon D600 while Canon launched EOS 650D / Rebel T4 and the long awaited Canon EOS 5D Mark III.
Olympus focus on PEN cameras and Sony continued to try for hitting gold with their A series.
The winner? Well, it’s hard not to give it to Canon with the superior 5D M3
Social Media and Photography in 2012
The winner? Google+. There’s no taking away the fact that many photographers moved to Google+ in 2012. With wide screen options and galleries not to mention Hangouts Google+ became the IT social network for photographers in 2012.
Photograph of the year 2012
It making a choice for photograph of the year we went for a mix of social, journalism and cold hard reality.
Massoud Hossaini from Afghanistan captured a Shiite woman standing among the dead and injured, after a bomb blast at the crowded Abu Fazal shrine in Kabul, on 6 December 2011.
For us this continues to hold as a photo of the year throughout 2012 and leading into 2013.
