Canon T5 Review

18.0mp | 3.1x | $474
The Canon T5 brings a welcomed update to Canon's entry-level DSLR model after 2011's Canon Rebel T3. Sporting a higher-res 18MP sensor, improved exterior styling, and upgraded Full HD video as well as advanced exposure controls for video, the T5 offers a lot of camera for your money. While the T5 may lean more toward the basic side of things, the image quality is very good when it's all said and done. If you're looking for a low barrier of entry into the DSLR world, the Canon Rebel T5 is a great place to start. Read more about it in our in-depth Canon T5 review, to see why!

Panasonic FZ1000 Review

20.1mp | 16.0x | $798
In 2013, the Sony RX10 set a very high benchmark for just what a long-zoom camera could be, with a large 1"-type image sensor and generous 8.3x zoom lens. Now, Panasonic puts forth a spectacularly-capable challenger in the 16x zoom Panasonic FZ1000, and despite the same sensor size and an even more generous feature set, it's barely any bigger. Although it lacks the constant aperture of the Sony, we think the Panasonic FZ1000 represents an even better buy for the typical photographer in search of a camera that will free them from the need to juggle a dozen different lenses. Want to know why? Read our in-depth Panasonic FZ1000 review, and find out!

Sony A7S Review

12.2mp | Non-Zoomx | $2,334
The Sony A7S defies convention with a unique 12-megapixel full-frame sensor with large pixels for outstanding high ISO performance as well as direct pixel readout for 4K video recording. With very wide dynamic range and high ISO sensitivity up to 409,600, plus a slew of professional-level video features such as SLog2 gamma, uncompressed 8-bit 4K and HD output via HDMI, zebras, focus peaking and XAVC S, the Sony A7S is arguably one the most versatile hybrid still and video cameras currently on the market for advanced enthusiasts and professional photographers and cinematographers.

What is Bounce Flash?
03/02, 12:15 EST There are big light sources and there are small light sources. I’m not talking about bright and dim here. I’m talking about size relative to the subject.
