Sony’s mirrorless cameras have long been some of the best you can buy. Its new A6300 is positively loaded, and pleasingly compact. And it’ll cost you.
Covetable retro camera reboots have been a thing for years, but oh my, this new Pen-F interchangeable-lens shooter from Olympus has my heart beating hard.
Even four years later, Fujifilm’s X-Pro1 interchangeable-lens camera stands on its own in the world of mirrorless shooters. It’s an uncompromising, no-bullshit serious photographer camera for arty types who “want to take their time with it.” What then, will people say about its newly introduced successor, the X-Pro2?
You have to marvel at the way Leica dives in to things unapologetically, even when its choices seem like those of a madman. Consider the Leica SL, an entirely new full-frame mirrorless camera. Bundled with a lens it runs over $12,000 and it weighs more than some small boulders. I got to use it for a weekend, and…
You can’t buy a single camera that does it all, no matter how much you spend. The most expensive DSLR or mirrorless offerings will give you top-notch photos or great video—not both in a single package. But Sony’s A7r Mark II is tantalizingly close to being that do-it-all camera.
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.
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.
Fujifilm has a reputation for making solid retro styled mirrorless cameras, and the latest, the X-T10, takes one of its most popular and high-performance bodies, the X-T1, and scales it down in size and price.
Beautiful retro design. Pro-level controls. So small. The Olympus OM-D E-M5 was the mirrorless camera for discerning photographers. Three years later, it's finally getting a update in the form of the new E-M5 Mark II. It provides some welcome improvements in feel and operation, plus a flashy trick or two. Is that…
Samsung sells a crapload of cameras all around the world. But not for pros. At $1500, the new NX1 is the first Samsung cam packing enough power to be taken seriously by photography enthusiasts. It shoots 4K video and fires off super fast 15 frame-per-second bursts. It's a good camera... but maybe not good enough.
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…
When shooting in bright light, a neutral density filter can be extremely useful if you want to use a large aperture for some nice background blur. A new Canon EF to Sony E-mount adapter by Fotodiox incorporates a variable ND filter so you don't have to buy one for each lens.
Sony's trio of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the a7, a7r, and a7s, are wonderfully capable machines. Unfortunately there just aren't that many native lenses to choose from. Today, a new super-wide zoom enters the fold that will hopefully make these slick bodies more appealing, with some primes on the way.
The new NX1 is the first Samsung interchangeable-lens camera that's truly compelling enough to consider alongside the competition. Its billboard feature: 4K video in a tiny package. But more than just trotting out of a glitzy, buzzy feature, the NX1 is loaded with advanced tech, including an industry-leading image…
For years now, Sony's been iterating its mirrorless line of cameras one tiny tweak at a time. That continues today with the A5100, a minor variation on the company's existing line.
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…
When Leica, the German company synonymous with design and quality, announces a new camera, people pay attention. The announcement of the Leica T, its new mirrorless camera system, was no exception. But when you're paying this kind of money, substance should be right there with style.
