Panasonic GH4 Review

16.1mp | Non-Zoomx | $1,651
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 | $6,099
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 | $773
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

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!


Samsung Galaxy NX Review

20.3mp | 3.1x | $1,332
Samsung makes a bold move with the convergence of an interchangeable lens camera and a smartphone in the Galaxy NX. This Android-powered camera features the same 20MP APS-C sensor as the NX300 and boasts similar impressive image quality at low to mid ISOs. A built-in EVF gives you a more traditional shooting experience, and the large 4.8-inch HD touchscreen is beautiful. With built-in Wi-Fi and 3G/4G LTE data capabilities, and all your favorite Android apps, the Samsung Galaxy NX should be the connected photographer's dream camera. Read our Samsung Galaxy NX review to find out if it's a dream come true.

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)

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)

Nikon D810 sample gallery: 24 new real-world images from one seriously high-res, full-frame DSLR
Featured Story 08/19, 13:59 EDT It's been a bit of a frustrating week here in Knoxville, Tennessee, but my fortune has finally changed! The reason for my frustration was pretty simple: I've had the Nikon D810 sitting on my desk, just begging me to go out and do some shooting -- but every time I've been free to do so, the weather hasn't been playing ball. And then finally, despite a weather forecast that was the most ominous... (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. According to a recently published... (more)

"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...

08/20, 12:32 EDT Want to save some desk space by consolidating several devices into one?

Lytro lets Illum's refocusable images roam free with updated iOS app
08/19, 16:28 EDT Ever since Lytro launched its first light field cameras back in 2011, its users were faced with a problem. The defining feature of Lytro's light-field images -- the ability to adjust the focus point post-capture, and to very slightly tweak framing -- was almost entirely reliant on the images being viewed on the web. Sure, there were apps for... (more)

The Ztylus lens accessory makes your iPhone look like a classic camera
08/19, 14:10 EDT Industrial design usually has the goal of combining form with function in a way that neither one gets in the way of the other. But achieving this isn't always an easy task, and products that focus too much on form often lack functionality, while those focusing too much on function often lack an aesthetic appeal. Then, there are those products that manage combine... (more)

Canon and Nikon issue service advisories regarding counterfeit batteries
08/19, 09:38 EDT When buying a new camera, one of the first accessories that most people get is one or more extra batteries. However, OEM batteries often come with a considerable price tag, and after an already expensive purchase, there may not be much money left to spend. Luckily, there are third party options available for most camera models which are often a lot cheaper. And... (more)

Dubai takes timelapse photography to the next level with Dubai 360
08/19, 09:21 EDT Timelapse photography has in the past years become a popular tool for travel videos not only with amateurs but also with professionals and increasingly with tourism offices. Not long ago we featured Rob Whitworth's beautiful flow-motion video of Barcelona here on Imaging Resource, which was in fact commissioned by the Catalan Tourism Bord. Rob Whitworth's... (more)

Sony A5100 replaces NEX-5T, puts A6000's hybrid autofocus in an even more affordable body
08/18, 00:01 EDT Earlier this year, Sony knocked the ball out of the park, launching one of the most popular compact system cameras we've seen to date -- the Sony A6000. Now, it follows up with the Sony A5100, a more affordable sibling to that model, and it will clearly be hoping to repeat its success. (And we've already been hands-on with the camera,... (more)

Nikon D610 vs. Canon 6D: The battle of the affordable, full-frame DSLRs
08/15, 17:42 EDT If you're in the market for a full-frame DSLR with a relatively affordable price-tag, the Canon 6D and Nikon D610 will doubtless be right near the top of your list. But if you're not already invested in full-frame glass for the Canon EF or Nikon F lens mounts, choosing between the two is quite a challenge. As the entry-level point to... (more)

Ricoh preps tele macro prime and zoom for Q-mount, and... 7mm prime for Four Thirds??
08/15, 17:35 EDT It's crystal ball time, Pentaxians! The hawk-eyed folks at two Japanese tech blogs -- Egami and Love Pentax -- have picked up news of several newly-published patent applications from Ricoh, owner of the Pentax brand, in the last few days. Two of them make quite a bit of sense, but we must admit we're a little baffled by the third. We'll... (more)
