Sony RX100 III Review

20.2mp | 2.9x | $792
It was clear from its heritage that the Sony RX100 III would be an exciting camera, given that both its predecessors earned our Pocket Camera of the Year award, two years running. But that level of success also meant some mighty big shoes to fill. Sony's pocket-friendly shooter line are in a class of their own, and we shot all three models side-by-side to determine once and for all -- which is the best compact camera that money can buy? Did the RX100 III have what it took to steal the crown? Read our Sony RX100 III review, and find out!


Panasonic GH4 Review

16.1mp | Non-Zoomx | $2,198
The Panasonic GH4 takes the impressive specs and performance of the GH3 and kicks them up a notch -- a big notch -- with faster burst shooting, quicker AF, and a host of other improvements, not to mention tons of new video features. With 4K video, higher bitrate Full HD, focus peaking, zebras, a plethora of image tweaking adjustments and clean, uncompressed HDMI output, the GH4 is at home in the hands of not only advanced and professional still photographers, but also in the hands of advanced and professional videographers.

Nikon D4S Review

16.2mp | $6,094
There are no two ways about it: The Nikon D4S is one seriously impressive DSLR. That's to be expected, bearing in mind its heritage. But casting judgement on its greatness depends very much on perspective, so we looked at Nikon's new pro flagship through two different lenses: That of the enthusiast looking to step up their game, and that of the pro upgrading to the latest and greatest. Whichever camp you fall into, we've got your answer. Read our Nikon D4S review, and find out if it's time you bought yourself a new DSLR!


Canon G1 X Mark II Review

13.1mp | 5.0x | $770
Canon refreshes its large-sensor compact with a revised 1.5-inch-type sensor, faster processor, and a brighter, wider and longer zoom lens. With a sleeker shape, add-on EVF and grip, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II is Canon's answer to the do-everything, go-anywhere compact camera for the advanced and enthusiast photographer. While some of the criticisms with the initial model have been addressed, there are still some issues here and there. Do the upsides outweigh the downsides? Read our Canon G1 X Mark II review to find out!


Sony A6000 Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A6000 digital camera
24.3mp | 3.1x | $782
Not only does this high-res speed demon cram in plenty of desirable features, the Sony A6000 also shaves a couple of hundred dollars off its predecessor's price. That's the recipe for greatness, so it's no surprise this has been one of our most popular reviews in recent memory -- and now, it's finished! So what was our final verdict on this affordable, swift-shooting camera, and is it time you bought one for yourself? Read our in-depth Sony A6000 review, and see what we thought!

Sony RX100 III Review: Is this the best compact camera money can buy?
Featured Story 08/22, 19:00 EDT In a very competitive market that's been eaten alive by the camera phone, it's hard for a compact camera to stand out from the crowd. That's precisely what Sony has managed with its RX100-series cameras, though. Now in its third iteration, the line started with the original RX100 in mid-2012, followed by the RX100 II last year, and now... (more)

Goodbye to a friend: Uwe Steinmueller - 8/8/14
Featured Story 08/20, 16:07 EDT This is a sad and difficult post to write; I just learned yesterday that my friend Uwe Steinmueller passed away from a heart attack, back on the 8th of this month. I can't even remember the first time I met Uwe, but it was at least 10 years ago, at some camera-company event introducing a new model. I subsequently saw him at many similar... (more)

Pentax 645Z First Shots: Medium-format, maximum image quality -- is it time to clean our Still Life scene?
Featured Story 08/20, 15:56 EDT If image quality is a prime consideration for your own photographic endeavors, we have a new camera in our lab right now that will make your heart flutter: the Pentax 645Z. The original Pentax 645D, which made its debut in late 2010, has been our de facto standard for high image quality ever since we first tested it. In fact, its test... (more)

Pics.io is a photo album and raw developer that resides in the cloud
08/22, 15:39 EDT When Adobe moved its solutions to the cloud a while back, a new era was ushered in for many creatives who use products such as Photoshop, Premiere and the like. Not just because Adobe moved away from individual per-app licensing to a subscription-based licensing scheme, but also because the move to cloud-based services blurred the lines between desktop application...

Take a glimpse at authentic, unstaged beach scenes from North Korea
08/22, 12:03 EDT In recent years, North Korea has started opening up to foreign visitors, and photos and videos depicting everyday life in the reclusive Asian country have started trickling through to our western eyes.

US Copyright Office doesn't want any monkey business
08/22, 09:47 EDT Unless you've been living under a rock these last couple of weeks, you've doubtless heard the story of nature photographer David Slater vs. Wikimedia. Slater published a photo in 2011 which was picked up by news media around the world, and shortly thereafter, by Wikimedia Commons, the free, online media repository run by the... (more)

Maxi mirrorless: Colossal Cinoflex video rig pairs Sony A7S, 600mm Nikkor lens for Chevy commercial
08/21, 16:28 EDT Snap question: What's the key advantage of a mirrorless camera over a DSLR? If you said "size," you've clearly been paying attention. Mirrorless camera makers regularly tout the trimmer bodies of their creations, as compared to the traditional DSLR. Not everyone is interested in mirrorless for its compact proportions, though, as a new video... (more)

Samsung created a roving robot to carry the Galaxy NX smart camera around Europe
08/21, 15:49 EDT The Samsung Galaxy NX is a strange breed of a camera, half mirrorless NX camera, half Android device. It comes with a viewfinder, humongous rear screen and quirky interface with as good as no physical buttons. It takes images just as gorgeous as any NX series camera, but it's an entirely different user experience. To be frank, we don't... (more)

Perfection for the pixel-addicted: 200-megapixel Hasselblad H5D-200c Multi Shot debuts
08/21, 10:09 EDT With cameras offering 30, 40 or even 50 megapixels now relatively affordable, you might think that the pixel-addicted -- those photographers who need to shoot at extremely high resolution for archival purposes, high-end product photography, and so on -- would be satisfied. You'd be wrong, though. For some purposes, it seems, there's... (more)

Nikon issues service advisory about "bright spots" in D810 photos
08/20, 15:02 EDT Uh-oh. It appears that Nikon is having trouble with the sensor in one of its cameras again. After the D600 sensor spot issue which brought much heat upon the digital camera manufacturer, Nikon now seems to have issues with the sensor inside the D810 which, reportedly, produces "bright spots" in photos under certain conditions.

"Recipes" photo series captures ingredients floating in mid-air
08/20, 13:56 EDT Cookbooks usually all follow a similar recipe (pun intended). In the vast majority of cases, they consist of more or less professionally taken images of dishes, along with a list of ingredients and a set of instruction on how to prepare them. Alternative approaches to this classic way of illustrating recipes are rare. German designer Nora Luther and photographer... (more)

Adobe publishes "quick guide" on how to transfer Aperture data to Lightroom
08/20, 12:55 EDT Back in June during its annually World Wide Developer Conference, Apple not only showcased iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, but also later announced that it would be discontinuing iPhoto and Aperture in favor of the new cross-platform Photos app. Unless Photos will be a viable replacement for Aperture, serious photographers as well as professionals may have to switch to an...
