3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in focus, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a case to be made that Tricia Guild, for all her creative talents, found it difficult to turn her work into a portfolio. 'Colour' is not solely a case study nor a showcase of practical work, but a series of subjective statements that lack any real connection to the photography.

And with the rise in popularity for smartphone video recording, where does that leave products like this? For the average consumer, there has actually never been a better time to buy a camcorder, with the price-technology balance more attractive than ever.

Canon's Legria HF-R56 is marketed as a mid-range product, but even in this price range the device easily outperforms popular smartphones. This is because of the single most important attribute to a digital camcorder;… Read more
