Olympus Stylus 1 Review
image of the Olympus Stylus 1 digital camera 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!

Nikon Df Review
image of the Nikon Df digital camera 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 GM1 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 digital camera 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 G16 Review
image of the Canon PowerShot G16 digital camera 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!

Tired of that chintzy camera strap? These custom straps combine function and beauty
Apr 16, 07:02 EDT All over the web these days, you can find dozens of styles of camera straps. There are straps with "rapid" sliders, carabiners and clamps, straps with polka dots and stripes and cutesy cats, and lots and lots of clunky, cobbled-together, artsy, hipster straps, homemade by someone who has probably never so much as held a camera. This is... (more)

Apr 15, 16:24 EDT Travelling the world is a dream many of us share, but only few ever see come true.

Battery charger promises full power after 30 seconds
