Interested in a high-quality 28-300mm eq. constant f/2.8 zoom lens mounted in front of a sensor that is larger than conventional all-in-one long zooms, but that fits comfortably in a coat pocket and won't break the bank? Read our in-depth Olympus Stylus 1 review to discover all of the great (and a few not-so-great) things this one-of-a-kind little digital camera has to offer!
Storage: SD, SDHC, SDXC

The full-frame, FX-format Nikon Df takes the same great sensor and processor pairing of the professional Nikon D4, and places them in a weather-sealed, retro-styled body that's rich with external controls. (And it does so at half the price of the pro camera.) It's arguably the best available-light shooter around, but is it the right camera for you? Read our Nikon Df review, and find out!
Storage: SD, SDHC, SDXC

Panasonic's "micro" Micro Four Thirds camera, the tiny Panasonic GM1 gets our full review treatment. The tiny camera features the same sensor and processor as its larger sibling, the GX7, but Panasonic has done some innovative engineering to pack all that power into such a small and pocketable digital camera. Check out our Panasonic GM1 review to see why this camera was voted the Best Pocket Interchangeable Lens Camera of 2013!

Canon's updated their powerful and nearly-pocketable flagship PowerShot with the new Canon G16. We've just completed our review of this high-end compact digital camera, and while it's not strikingly different from the previous model, it does bring a big update to the table: speed. With vastly increased AF speed and continuous shooting frames per second -- plus built-in Wi-Fi -- the Canon G16 seems like a surefire upgrade, but is it significant enough to make G15 owners yearn for the sweet '16? Read our Canon G16 review to find out!
Storage: SD, SDHC, SDXC
Compare Price: $435-651
We've put it through its paces, and the Sony RX100 II really sets a new bar for pocket camera performance. The original RX100 already dominated the competition, and the new model is a substantial step up from it in a number of areas. Check out our Sony RX100 II review, to see why we voted it our Best Pocket Camera of 2013! Shopping for a really superb pocket camera? Read the review!

Sony A7/A7R light leaks - Roger Cicala of LensRentals weighs in
Featured Story Mar 11, 16:37 EDT Another day, another story about Sony A7 light leaks... Honestly, we're about coming to the end of our coverage on this topic, as it's a complete non-issue for the vast majority of photographers, and we're pretty close to having beat it to death. We have one more hopefully definitive piece of our own coming on the subject, but in the... (more)
Sony A7 light leak, round II of III - Results of direct-sun test suggest more testing needed...
Featured Story Mar 10, 20:27 EDT When we reported on the Sony A7 light leak issue Friday, we moved to get you information as soon as possible. Since our A7 was with Editor Mike Tomkins, a timezone ahead of us, he wasn't able to catch the sun in time for a test similar to our experiment with the D800E and 5D Mark III. Instead, he used a couple of high-intensity flashlights... (more)

Sony A7 Review: Shooter's Report -- Will Sony's affordable full-frame mirrorless start a revolution?
Featured Story Mar 7, 13:01 EDT The era of the full-frame mirrorless camera is here, thanks to the Sony A7 compact system camera, as well as its sibling the Sony A7R. The two are extremely closely-related, differing largely in their sensor resolution and autofocus method. We reviewed the A7R recently; now we turn our attention to its more affordable twin. When we... (more)
Fujifilm XQ1 - First shots posted
Mar 11, 16:32 EDT Fuji's 2/3" sensor is relatively large for a compact camera, and yet, the Fujifilm XQ1 is "the most portable X-series camera ever developed" according to Fuji. We were wowed enough with the clever and cool little XF1 that we awarded it a Camera of Distinction in our pocket camera category last... (more)
Sigma ordered to pay $14.5 million in compensation to Nikon for lens stabilization patent infringement

Tokyo District Court Judge in Chief Shigeru Osuga found that Sigma's optical image stabilization system uses 15% of Nikon's... (more)

Mar 11, 15:33 EDT In order to celebrate the launch of their new Google+ profile, Nikon introduced 'Nikon Behind the Scenes,' a 15-video photography tutorial series.

Instagram for Android update is smaller, runs faster, better designed for low end devices
Mar 11, 14:22 EDT Instagram has just updated its Android app to version 5.1. There are no new features, no tweaked filters, and it seems almost unchanged. But in some ways, what Instagram has done is even more important than that—the Android version has been overhauled to run faster, take up less space, and work better on low-end devices. Which is a big deal... (more)
Getty Images and Flickr kill partnership after five years
Mar 11, 13:42 EDT For half a decade, Flickr users have had the option to license their images through Getty Image's Flickr Collection. Partly curated and partly open to submission, it allowed photographers a chance to monetize the photos they'd already uploaded, without much extra work. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, Getty has contacted its Flickr users to... (more)
NPPA gives Humanitarian Award to photojournalist Al Diaz
Mar 11, 13:07 EDT Something extraordinary happened to Miami photojournalist Al Diaz in February. Stuck on freeway in Florida, he saw a woman screaming for help outside of her SUV, as her baby nephew had just stopped breathing. Running to help, Diaz put his job as a journalist second, acting as a decent human being first, making sure that the situation was in... (more)

Sony and Panasonic announce the Archival Disc: is it the answer to the long-term digital storage conundrum?
Mar 10, 17:22 EDT In the age of digital photography, long-term storage of our collective works is a real issue. Even the amateur photographer easily amasses hundreds of gigabytes worth of data in a short time, and it's even more with professional photographers – let alone videographers. It's no wonder that RAID network storage and other multi-disk drive storage devices with... (more)
