DSLR cameras, the big bulky Nikon and Canon cameras you see photographers and your cousin Mimi rocking at weddings, aren’t going to go away any time soon, but mirrorless cameras, like the excellent Sony A9, have gotten good enough to make the Nikons and Canons of the world scared. So Nikon’s latest full frame…
This isn’t art, though it may look like it. Instead, it’s a striking look at 17 years of progress in snapping digital photos in low light. How times have changed.
The holidays are over, and we're left with nothing to look forward to but a few more months of bitter cold weather. Oh, and snow! Lots of snow! So let's take photos of snow!
When the Nikon D200 came out in 2005, it was a big hit. (At the time, Gizmodo said it was "pretty rawkin.") But would you believe that a decade-old camera design could handle ultra high speed photography, like the amazing bullet-blasted peanut butter cup shot above? Turns out, a well designed workflow is all it takes.
When the Canon 7D came out in 2009, it soon became one of the most popular DSLRs ever. It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-oriented 5D Mark II. Five years later, the 7D Mark II makes its debut with plenty of powerful specs, yet it's not likely to be the same…
RAW or JPEG? JPEG or RAW? Too. Many. Decisions. Fortunately, a new Canon patent suggests technology that could make that choice for you.
Video quality in DSLRs has been fairly steady in its seven years or so on the scene. There have been minor jumps in cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III, but DSLRs have been largely eclipsed in image quality by mirrorless and new video-focused cinema cameras. Nikon, used to playing second-fiddle to Canon, is not going…
The Nikon D800 is commonly held in high regard as one of the best pro DSLRs out there. When it was released back in 2012, it made news for its unique 36 megapixel sensor. This time around, the focus is on minor improvements for some added firepower in an already fiery camera.
Most of the attention heaped on Sony these days is directed at their compact mirrorless cameras. But there is still plenty of interest in those other members of the Alpha family, those larger A-mount DSLR style bodies. The a77 Mark II brings some long awaited updates to the table.
Take a 10,000mAh Anker battery and a DC coupler from Amazon, add a hot-shoe plate and some industrial strength velcro, and throw it all at your DSLR. Nope, it's not a craft project—it'll give your camera an amazing 9 hours of battery life.
While Nikon will show off its new pro-grade DSLR, the D4S, at CES, the camera has already been unveiled at an official press event over in Hong Kong. Here it is.
Canon has spent years making incremental improvements to its DSLR line's video features, yet it's been ages since we've seen a major step forward in functionality. While the 60D added some nice touches, its successor, the EOS 70D, makes one very specific leap towards excellence.
As the sub-$1000, beginner DSLR camera's utility has been gradually been replaced by the rise of mirrorless cameras, the just-over $1000 DSLR market remains an area where camera companies are hoping to reign in more advanced and even professional users. With that in mind, let's take a look at Pentax's new K-3, a…
If you have a knackered old SLR lying around, are game for a project and fancy adding a little quirk to your front door, why not think about creating a photography themed peephole?
This font, called Phone Streak, might not be the most practical typeface in the world, but it was probably the most fun to create—because it was put together by capturing long exposures of an iPhone being swept through the air.
T.S. Eliot didn't know what the hell he was talking about—August is unquestionably the cruelest month. With only four more sweet weeks of summer left, every day that passes is just another reminder that we're about to be back in the lifeless dregs of fall. And what do we do when something upsets us? That's right;…
We have to get over it right up front. This stool costs about $780, which is stupid a lot. But now that it's out in the open we can move on and admire how cool it is, right? Riiight?
Last year's Canon T4i is a really excellent camera. But for all its whiz-bang features like a capacitive touchscreen and continuous autofocus while shooting video, it just didn't feel special. A DSLR for beginners just doesn't make as much sense when there are smaller mirrorless cameras that can achieve similar…
Looks like some clumsy folks at Best Buy have listed an unannounced Canon DSLR on their website. This could fall in line with rumors circulating about a "mini-DSLR" meant to compete with compact mirrorless cameras.
