Apple 2020 New Products

Last year was a big moment for Apple product launches. Not only did the company keep with its schedule of releasing a trio of new smartphones and an Apple Watch in September, but 2019 also held a few surprises such as a new iPod touch and two new pairs of AirPods.

This year is bound to be just as eventful for Apple, if the rumors and reports are to be believed. Apple is expected to release its first 5G-enabled iPhones in the fall as well as a new low-cost smartphone among other devices.

A new iPad Pro with 3-D cameras

Apple is planning to release a new iPad Pro next year that will have two camera sensors and a 3-D sensor that will make it possible to create digital reconstructions of the world around you, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. It’s said to be part of Apple’s big push into augmented reality as it prepares to release its first headset in 2021 or 2022, the report also said.

Gurman isn’t the only one to report that a new iPad Pro with 3-D depth sensing is coming next year. Ming-Chi Kuo, a reliable analyst with TF International Securities known for his Apple predictions, also said as much, according to a research note reported by MacRumors.

A new “cheap” iPhone to succeed the iPhone SE

Apple fans looking for a bargain on a new iPhone may be in luck this year.

The company is reportedly planning to launch a new version of the iPhone SE in 2020, according to reports from Bloomberg, Nikkei Asian Review and Kuo. The phone is said to be entering production in February and could be released in March, Bloomberg reported.

The original iPhone SE, which launched in 2016, was significantly cheaper than Apple’s flagship smartphones at $400 and resembled the iPhone 5S.

The new version is expected to launch in the spring of 2020 and may have a 4.7-inch screen just like the iPhone 8. It’ll reportedly run on the same processor as the iPhone 11, Apple’s A13 Bionic chip, and could cost $400. That would make it $300 cheaper than the $700 base model iPhone 11.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, which may come in two new sizes and support 5G

Apple debuts its new iPhone’s like clockwork every September, and next year isn’t likely to be any different. Apple’s next-generation iPhones are expected to come with support for 5G networks, new 3-D cameras, and updated screen sizes for the Pro models, according to reports from Bloomberg, Kuo, and others.

The new iPhones are said to come with a new 3-D camera that scan and digitally reproduce the environment around you using lasers, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. It’s the same sensor that’s expected to appear on Apple’s new iPad Pro in 2020.

It’s also very likely that next year’s iPhones will include support for 5G connectivity, coming after Android device makers like Samsung have already launched 5G-ready phones in 2019.

Apple may also implement the biggest redesign to the iPhone since the iPhone X launched in 2017. Both Kuo and Korean news outlet ET News have reported that next year’s iPhones will come in 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch screen sizes, unlike the current lineup which includes the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro, the 6.1-inch iPhone 11, and the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max.

A new Apple Watch that can track your sleep

Apple traditionally unveils its new Apple Watch alongside new iPhones in September, so there’s a good chance we’ll see the company follow the same pattern in 2020.

The biggest update to this year’s Apple Watch could be the addition of sleep tracking technology, a feature that rival watches from Fitbit and others have long offered. Apple has been testing sleep monitoring for the Apple Watch this year and hopes to have the feature ready by 2020, according to Bloomberg.

The next-generation watch is also expected to include faster performance and improved water resistance, according to a note from Kuo obtained by MacRumors.

10 Sports Photography tips for beginners

10 Sports Photography tips for beginners

Capturing the action of a thrilling sports event, whether it is football, rugby league, soccer, tennis and everything in between, is a wonderful feeling for all involved. But just how can we get those shots we see in the magazines and newspapers?

I will be giving you my top 10 tips on sports photography for beginners, hopefully improving your sports photos dramatically!

What you need and some pre-tips:

You will need a digital SLR camera, or a camera that allows you to set your own shutter speed. If you aren’t using either of these then chances are you won’t be able to capture very good sports photos.

When you first arrive at an event, particularly children’s sports, it’s important to remember that you need to seek permission to take photos. Once you get the a-ok we are ready to shoot!

1. Have a lens or zoom range that is AT LEAST 200mm.

A focal length greater than 200mm is obviously a lot better as it will allow you to get close to the action and without being able to zoom in, you won’t be able to isolate any of your subjects. Two common beginners lenses are the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR or the Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM.

2. Do NOT use full automatic mode.

This is a common mistake made by amateur photographers. They will usually set their camera in full automatic mode or a pre-mode labelled “sports” or “action”. While these may work OK on occasions, to really take to the next level you need to use a semi-manual mode.

3. Use a fast shutter speed.

In sports photography, you want to ensure that the shutter speed on your camera is fast enough to capture the quick moving bodies of the athletes. A shutter speed of at least 1/500th of a second is required to freeze movement. Try not to go below 1/500th of a second.

4. Use Aperture Priority mode.

The modes on a typical DSLR are Automatic, Program Automatic, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual. Displayed by the letter A on a Nikon camera and AV on a Canon, the aperture is our f/stop number, which determines how much light is taken into the camera’s sensor. If you aren’t using a digital SLR camera, you don’t need to worry about setting an aperture, but rather a shutter speed, which we will get to shortly. When we set the camera’s aperture in aperture priority mode we are allowing the camera to determine the shutter speed. On a bright sunny day, this is usually the best setting to use. Many professionals for sports photography use aperture priority mode. What we are looking at doing in this mode is setting a very large aperture, which is a small f-stop number, such as f/2.8 or f/4. This will ensure that the most possible light is allowed in, which in turn tells the camera that a fast shutter speed is needed for the correct exposure. When there is more light in the camera it will allow for a faster shutter speed, thus helping to freeze the action.

5. Watch your ISO.

Shutter speed, as you can tell, is very important. To determine the correct exposure we use 3 components, which are aperture, shutter speed and ISO. When shooting in a semi-manual modes such as aperture priority or shutter priority we need to set the ISO ourselves considering the location, time and conditions of the event you are photographing. For a bright sunny daytime soccer match for example, a low ISO of 400 will be perfect as there is plenty of light available for the camera to use. However if it is a dull overcast day, there is not as much light and we need to be able to tell the camera this by setting our ISO. On a darker day you will need to increase your ISO, usually to around the 800-1200 mark.

6. Use Shutter Priority Mode if Aperture Priority isn’t available.

This setting is best used for non-SLR photographers who only have a camera that enables shutter speed settings. As many people reading this won’t own an SLR, it is important to remember that you can still capture some great shots. Most cameras including point-and-shoots will enable the users to set a shutter speed. Instead of telling the camera how much light to let in, as we did with aperture priority, using shutter priority mode enables us to tell the camera directly what speed we would like the shutter to be. The camera will then decide on what aperture – or f/stop number – to use. As mentioned earlier, at least 1/500th of a second is needed. You will need to take test shots when setting your shutter speed manually, in case you set it too high and are not letting enough light into the camera.

7. Use a fast auto-focus and burst mode.

In order for the camera to keep up with the fast movements we want to set it to continually focus on our subject or subjects rather than lock on to one spot. On top of this, we must also set our camera to take multiple images, usually referred to as “frames per second” or “burst”. Locate both of these on your camera and ensure that they are switched ON when shooting sports. If you have the option to set how many frames per second you would like your camera to take, always set it to the maximum whether it be 3, 4, 5 or more photos a second. This increases our chances of capturing that money shot.

8. Position yourself correctly and know your sport.

The best thing you can do is to position yourself with the sun behind your back. This ensures that a lot of light is hitting your subject out on the field of play, which reverts back to letting as much light in as possible and freezing the action with those fast shutter speeds. It is also helpful if you know a lot about the sport you are taking photos of as anticipating where the ball or the action may be is going to help you get the best shots possible. Follow the action with your camera, ensuring that you are zoomed in close enough to have the majority of the frame be the player themselves.

9. Take lots and lots of photos.

Whether it be a soccer player kicking the ball or a tennis player serving, once you have your subject in the frame you can half-hold the shutter button to focus and then hold down to fire away and capture as many photos per second as you can, thanks to the previous burst modes we have set. In this day and age with digital photography we are fortunate to be able to see our results immediately. There is absolutely no harm in finishing a sporting event with 2000 pictures on your camera!

10. Shoot from a low angle, such as your knees and use a monopod.

By shooting from your knees you are capturing much more of a dramatic angle as well as letting in more of a clear background rather than other athletes and grass. The lower perspective gives the photo excellent depth and it’s a technique that you will see all pro photographers doing. Also look to purchase a monopod and use it, even if your lens and camera are not heavy. It is very beneficial in helping you keep your camera steady and balanced while shooting from different angles, particularly your knees.

I hope that with these tips you can capture some awesome pictures. We would love to see your results.
