I’ve been dragging the Sony A7S on all of my adventures for the last few months — shooting in broad daylight and the dead of night. It’s gotten dirty; even dropped. Here’s how it performed.
Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.
Leica has spent the better part of the last decade peddling one or two great products, flanked by a bunch of overpriced “special editions”, and some re-branded Panasonic cameras (also overpriced). The Leica Q finally brings something new to the table. I spent a weekend with the Q, and here are my thoughts.
A good camera system needs lots of lenses, and Sony is taking their full-frame FE system a step forward with some new hunks of glass. We caught a whiff of these last year when Sony first teased them, but now we have a full rundown of pricing and availability.
We recently did a quick preview of Sony's new A7 Mark II, the brand new revision to last year's full-frame mirrorless camera. Since then I've had a chance to spend significantly more quality time with the Mark II, and am ready to ruminate on what's better and worse on version two.
The recent surprise announcement of Sony's a7 Mark II had people reeling about the first-ever 5-axis in-body stabilization on a full-frame camera. We recently got our meathooks on one of the new cams and wanted to show you just a bit of what it can do before giving it a more comprehensive report.
Last week Sony Japan hit us with a surprise announcement of the A7 Mark II, an upgrade over the popular full-frame mirrorless camera. The initial launch was only for Asia, which left people on this side of the pond a bit confused. Well, we now have pricing and U.S. availability for the new cam that sports wicked…
Sony's A7 line of full-frame mirrorless cameras are friggin' awesome, but there haven't been many native lens options, especially in the realm of fast prime lenses. That's slowly changing, and it's starting with Zeiss.
Sony's moves in the field of consumer electronics can seem genius at times, and baffling at others. Its new full-frame mirrorless camera, the A7s, is a little bit of both. It's a camera that looks and functions exactly as previous A7 models, but with a few very specific, and exciting, features especially suited to…
It seems like ages ago when most pros were still shooting film, but actually it wasn't that far back in time. In 2005, Canon released the EOS 5D—a full-frame DSLR that many think turned the tide for skeptical photogs still doubting what digital could do. The B&H Insights blog has a brief history of why that camera was…
Nikon has been teasing the photography world lately with a series of seductive videos that hint at some amazing cool camera on the horizon. Will this thing actually be what people expect, and can it rival the recent Sony powerhouses?
Mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras have come a long way in only a few years. And after gradually layering on new features and capability, they've finally reached an apex in Sony's new A7 and A7r models, both of which sport that big and beautiful bastion of image quality—the full-frame sensor.
There are two terms in digital photography that signify two very different kinds of cameras. The terms are compact, and full-frame. The former defines those cheap, pocketable point-and-shoots, while the latter is a feature only found on the most professional DSLRs. With the RX1, Sony fused these two polar opposites in…
Sony excited a lot of people who were down on point-and-shoots with the full-frame RX1. As the smallest full-frame sensor camera, it sounded like it could be awesome. But sounding awesome is different from looking awesome and with cameras, it's all about the shots right? Well, here are some sample shots of the RX1.
RED just announced their new RED EPIC flagship video camera at NAB, which uses a new, full-frame S35mm Mysterium X sensor. The Mysterium X matches the quality of 35mm film at 5k resolution and one ups the 4k Mysterium sensor found in the RED ONE. The EPIC can also shoot framerates up to 100 FPS.
Even though a Leica rep explicitly told us at PMA that there would be no M9 or M10—Leica plans to perpetually upgrade the Inspector Gadget of digital cameras, the M8, instead—some customers received a letter from the big L that a full-frame M camera is on the way.
