Nikon D3300 Review
image of the Nikon D3300 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.1x | $464
The Nikon D3300 is a solid camera, in more ways than one: solid build quality and solid image quality. While autofocus performance is a little below average, and the limited external controls and smaller size may be a turn off for some, the Nikon D3300 excels in most areas. If you're ready to make the jump to a DSLR camera, the Nikon D3300 provides a nice starting point with a great combination of image quality, ease of use and price. Read more about this compact, lightweight, and high-resolution DSLR in our in-depth Nikon D3300 review!


Sony A7 II Review

24.3mp | 2.5x | $2,000
Sony has yet another winner on their hands with the A7 II. By addressing some of the design and ergonomic quirks of the original model, as well as providing a notable technological achievement with their 5-axis image stabilization -- and some subtle, yet worthwhile, performance enhancements -- the Sony A7 II is a more matured, more well-rounded camera and therefore an even more enticing option for those wanting full-frame image quality but not a full-frame DSLR-sized camera.

Nikon D810 Review
image of the Nikon D810 digital camera
36.3mp | $2,997
The 36-megapixel Nikon D810 has some pretty big shoes to fill, replacing the much-loved D800 and D800E with a single model. Taking the best of both, this detail-devouring beauty has even greater per-pixel resolution, a wider sensitivity range, greater performance, more capable video capture, and more -- but it also now has competition from rivals Canon and Sony. How does it fare in this new reality? Read our in-depth Nikon D810 review, and find out!


Panasonic GM5 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 digital camera
16.0mp | 2.7x | $899
The Panasonic GM5 takes what was great about the GM1 and improves upon it immensely. While still keeping a lightweight and compact design -- that's practically pocketable even with the 12-32mm kit lens -- the Panasonic GM5 manages to includes a fully-functional, albeit small, electronic viewfinder. Creative lighting options are expanded by the addition of a hot-shoe and external flash support, plus, ergonomics and customization are subtly yet noticeably improved. The image quality remains unchanged and impressive, and performance is still excellent with slight improvements in some areas. Read our in-depth Panasonic GM5 review for all the details!


Nikon D750 Review
image of the Nikon D750 digital camera
24.3mp | 5.0x | $2,373
Placed between the D610 and D810, the Nikon D750 borrows from both models for a fantastic all-around multimedia DSLR. With a 24.3MP full-frame sensor and fast EXPEED 4 processor, the Nikon D750 captures outstanding, highly detailed images with excellent dynamic range and high ISO performance. The Nikon D750 also has class-leading burst shooting capabilities and excellent low-light AF. With an articulated LCD screen and other high-end movie features, the D750 is also a great option for multimedia producers and videographers. Read our in-depth Nikon D750 review for all the details on this all-around multimedia DSLR!

Uptown photos for downtown weddings: Nikon and Joe McNally give New Yorkers free, world-class memories
Featured Story 05/27, 12:33 EDT Next to birth and death, few life events eclipse a wedding. It's no wonder that weddings are such a huge industry here in the US, or that people spend thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars to have them photographed. Life memories like these are truly priceless. But what if you can't afford to hire a high-end pro photographer to record your nuptials?... (more)

Samsung NX500 Image Quality Comparison: A lot of resolution packed into that lightweight camera
Featured Story 05/26, 12:26 EDT The compact, travel-friendly Samsung NX500 borrows a lot from the exterior design of its predecessor, the NX300, which is understandable. However, it borrows most of the guts from the larger, powerful NX1, which is quite remarkable. Inside this rather compact ILC body is the same 28.2-megapixel APS-C backside-illuminated CMOS sensor as found... (more)

Nikon Japan issues apology for Coolpix P900 production delays
05/25, 14:15 EDT Nikon’s Coolpix P900 is an impressive superzoom camera. With its 83x zoom capabilities, equal to roughly 2000mm on a full-frame sensor, it packs quite a punch in its considerably small frame. It appears though, that manufacturing the Coolpix P900 isn’t as efficient as it probably should be to keep up with demand. Almost immediately after its announcement date of... (more)

Flickr faces backlash after new system tags concentration camps 'jungle gyms,' humans 'animals'
05/20, 13:22 EDT In its latest 4.0 update, Flickr unveiled a new auto-tagging system designed to intelligently determine the subject matter of an image and appropriately suggest tags for the images.
