A 'nifty fifty' for Micro Four Thirds that's fast, sharp and affordable.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Do concerns about Sony A7 light leaks hold water?
Featured Story Mar 7, 23:08 EST As we reported yesterday, the Internet recently has been aflutter with reports of light leaks in the Sony A7 and A7R. If you expose the camera to bright sunlight, attach the lens cap, crank the ISO to 25,600, and take a 30 second exposure, you'll probably see streaks of light in the image.... (more)

Sony A7 Review: Shooter's Report -- Will Sony's affordable full-frame mirrorless start a revolution?
Featured Story Mar 7, 12:01 EST 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)
A Camera For Everyone? The Canon Rebel T3i - still selling Big Time after all these years
Mar 8, 11:58 EST You all know that we here at The Imaging Resource love cameras, and every manufacturer has at least a few true gems out there for all of us to fall for. But every now and then a camera seems to transcend time and the current market and, well, simply stays current long after being past its... (more)
Firmware Friday: Pentax preps for 1.4x rear converter; Sony Alpha 7-series mirrorless updates on the way
Mar 7, 19:25 EST This week, Firmware Friday brings news of a raft of updates for cameras from Pentax, Sony, and Canon -- but that's not all. Mixing things up just a little, we also step outside of the box for a software update from Nikon. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We'll start off with Ricoh's firmware updates for Pentax cameras, which... (more)
Apple quietly releases 4K monitor support for OS X, is a 4K Apple Cinema Display in the works?
Mar 7, 13:56 EST 4K looks to be the next big thing in computing. We've seen 4K cameras, 4K video recording, 4K cellphones, and at CES, we saw a lot more 4K monitors, too. Now, in a new Mac OS beta, Apple has improved support for 4K displays, prompting us to wonder if Apple has its own 4K screen in the works. The new feature is present in the first beta for... (more)
This 50mm f/0.75 lens is super fast, but makes a Lensbaby look sharp!
Mar 7, 13:36 EST People love super-fast prime lenses. The famed Zeiss 50mm f/0.7 is the stuff of legend, a Noctilux will set you back more than $10,000 for f/0.95, or you can get a Hyperprime for a bit more cheap. But what would you say to a 50mm f/0.75 that you could get for less than $1000? De Oude Delft Rayxar is actually a modified x-ray lens, so not... (more)
Canon recalls 14,000 SX50 cameras due to allergic reactions to viewfinder
Mar 7, 13:07 EST Late last year, Canon issued a product advisory for the SX50, citing that a number of units had problems with the rubber around the viewfinder discoloring, and potentially causing discomfort. Now Canon has announced an official recall for the camera, asking users to send in some 14,000 units, after some users suffered allergic reactions from... (more)
When free isn't: Adobe's Photoshop Express update adds in-app purchases
Mar 7, 12:39 EST Android users who have the free Photoshop Express app on their smartphone may have found something surprising when it recently updated to version 2.1. Adobe rolled out two new features, but if you want them, you have to pay. To get Adobe's Noise Reduction tool will cost you $5, and a filter pack goes for $3—which makes a free app cost $8 if...

The internet is complete thanks to this incredible slow motion footage of a goshawk attacking a water balloon
Mar 7, 12:03 EST We've seen high-speed photography and slow-motion video footage of birds in flight. We've seen high-speed photography and slow-motion video footage of water balloons popping. What we haven't seen so far is a bird of prey eviscerating a water balloon with its claws mid-flight in slow-motion. Until now. Thanks to the brilliant folks over at Earth Unplugged, a... (more)
More doom and gloom: camera sales dropped badly in 2013, 2014 off to poor start
Mar 6, 13:58 EST More bad news from the world of camera sales—there's more data on just how rough of a year 2013 was, and it looks like 2014 is off to a pretty poor start. This builds on previous reports of poor sales, and doesn't paint the beginnings of this year in a very positive light. LensVid has put together an infographic on camera sales from... (more)
Getty goes free, decriminalizes photo sharing with new image embed feature
Mar 6, 13:42 EST Piracy is a big and oft-used word these days, especially when it comes to the internet. Another word often used in conjunction with 'piracy' is 'intellectual property.' If you're making a living from creative work such as photography, music, or similar art forms, then seeing your work being used without your consent, without proper attribution, or even without...

SLRLounge puts Panasonic GH4 and GH3 in head-to-head high ISO tests
Mar 6, 13:21 EST While it's the Panasonic GH4's incredible sounding video skills that have drawn most of the attention, we can't forget that this is a still camera, too—and one that we're hoping will take fantastic photos. While we don't have our own hands on the GH4 yet, and haven't had a chance to plug it into the Comparometer, the folks at SLRLounge have... (more)
500px Prime goes live, $250 for unlimited photo licensing, photographers get 70%
Mar 6, 12:56 EST A month ago, 500px first announced 500px Prime, a move to push the popular photography site into licensing images for outside use. However, the announcement quickly drew significant ire due to the fact that it only offered photographers a 30% cut of the sale. Now Prime has gone live, and 500px has reversed the payment, offering the original... (more)
Sony A7, A7r photogs report light leaks, some reports suggest service centers aware of the problem
Mar 6, 12:12 EST Across various forums and discussion boards, a number of Sony shooters have spotted a problem with the Sony A7 and Sony A7r: it leaks light. It doesn't seem like this problem is hitting all users, but the number of people who have encountered it does seem to be substantial enough to indicate that it's a real problem—and from the sounds of...
