The bi-annual Photokina show going on in Germany right now is the most important photography tech event in the world. We see some awesome gear, yes, but we also get a get a glimpse for what lies ahead. This year's show is particularly interesting because it falls just as digital imaging reaches the crossroads…
Biannual photography trade show Photokina took place last week in Cologne, Germany. It was a gathering of companies, journalists, and enthusiasts, all there to swoon over the latest camera gear. If you couldn't make the trip, gaze upon this symphonic ode to camera lovers everywhere.
The new Leica M is German camerasmith's latest photo-slaying, digital full-frame camera in the tradition of its M-series rangefinders. It's the long rumored follow-up/upgrade to the fabulous (and fabulously expensive) M9 from a few years ago. Behold the bonkers camera you'll be drooling over for the next couple of…
A whole community of filmmakers—amateur and pros alike—turned the Panasonic GH2 into a surprisingly successful camera. It turned out, that with a simple to execute hack, you could use the camera to record ultra-sharp 100-Mbps+, 1080p HD video. The results were spectacular. With the new GH3, Panasonic has beefed up its…
Last year's Olympus micro four thirds cameras were very good. Well, now Olympus is bringing touchscreens to two of the cameras from the line that should make them easier to use than ever.
At just $2100 for the body, the Canon EOS 6D it's the cheapest full-frame camera you can buy new. It's got one hell of a lineage, but how will it measure up to Nikon's crazy new D600, which the same price for body alone?
When the excellent Sony RX100 came out from hiding, we fawned over its huge one inch sensor, f/1.8 aperture, and positively tiny point-and-shoot frame. Now another has arrived in the form of the FujiFilm XF1, and while it only has a 2/3-inch sensor, it too has a f/1.8 aperture and a diminutive figure draped in…
For a lot of people a professional DSLR like the Nikon D800 is something you dream about but can't afford. The new full-frame Nikon D600 is $800 cheaper than the D800 and packs many of its big brother's features. Yes, you, the non-professional should be very excited.
Most haggard old pros gave their souls up to Nikon and Canon long ago. Too bad for them because the Sony a99 is the kind of DSLR the pros of the future might be looking for: Small, fast, and furious.
Sony's been grinding on compact, interchangeable-lens cameras: It's got three different lines (NEX 3, 5, 7) going at different price points, and they're all spectacular. The Sony NEX 6 is the latest for everyone who loves using the high-end NEX-7 but hates the price.
Pentax has overhauled the excellent dust-proof, shock-proof, water-resistant Pentax K-5 from 2010 with a brand new autofocus system that works in darker conditions than ever before. The Pentax K-5 II might just be the best sticky situation camera out there.
Remember the Fujifilm X-Pro 1? Remember its mirrorless, 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor and range of XF lenses? Yep, well look closely at the X-E1, because it's virtually the same camera in a smaller package.
While the whole camera industry seems to be going nuts for the retro, pared-down beauty of the micro four thirds (and similar) models around, if you want true "original" design you must look for that (pricey) red dot.
Things are getting freaky over at Photokina, where Leaf's showing off their new Aptus-II 12 and Aptus-II12R digital camera backs. The price: $32,000. The pixels: 80 million, the most of any camera back to date. Good stocking stuffers. [PopPhoto]
Early next year Olympus will be selling a new flagship compact camera, their first with an inbuilt Zuiko lens. While details are scarce (there's nary a name to wishlist yet!), it looks something like this...
