Canon refreshes its large-sensor compact with a revised 1.5-inch-type sensor, faster processor, and a brighter, wider and longer zoom lens.

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.

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 | $1,399
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.


Sony A3000 Review

20.1mp | 3.1x | $337
Some cameras are all about cramming in features; the Sony A3000 doesn't play that game. It's been pared down to the basics -- you get precisely what you need, and little more. But while rivals in its pricetag skimp on the basics with plastic lens mounts and years-old designs, Sony plays its own game, making an affordable camera that you'd actually want to own. But that's not to say that there are no compromises in the A3000. Read our in-depth Sony A3000 review, and find out whether Sony's hit the perfect balance between features and cost!


Fujifilm X-T1 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-T1 digital camera
16.3mp | 3.1x | $1,649
The Fuji X-T1 is a great example of the retro genre. Don't let its surprisingly compact, vintage-styled body fool you, though: It's wrapped around cutting-edge technology, including a class-leading electronic viewfinder and Fuji's exclusive X-Trans sensor technology. The Fuji X-T1 also boasts blazing-fast performance and top-notch image quality, but is it the right camera for you? We roamed the continents in search of our answer. Read our in-depth Fuji X-T1 review, and find out if it's finally time to shelve your DSLR and join the mirrorless crowd!

Using 50 Canon EOS 1D X cameras to create a ten second bullet time action sports clip

Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6G II Lens Review: The little kit lens gets smaller, lighter and sharper
Featured Story 07/22, 09:21 EDT Kit lenses tend not to get a lot of love. They're often cast off as mediocre with lackluster sharpness or lots of CA or distortion.

G Vario, this lens bucks the trend with improved sharpness, low distortion as well as a smaller and lighter build -- making it... (more)

Sony boosts sensor output to meet strong demand
07/23, 16:18 EDT It's a good time to be a sensor manufacturer, it seems. While camera sales have been hard-hit by the rise of smartphones, demand for image sensors is stronger than ever. (And that's especially true of stacked, backside-illuminated image sensors, a popular choice in smartphones where the tradeoff between camera module size and image quality... (more)

Learn how to use HDR to create natural looking photos in this B&H educational video
07/23, 14:13 EDT When photographing a scene with strong contrast, such as a landscape during the morning or evening light, a cityscape in the afternoon, or an interior scene with bright light coming in through the windows, most digital cameras' sensors are uncapable of capturing the full dynamic range of the scene. This leads to a loss of detail either in the highlight or in the... (more)

Nikon V3 Shooter’s Report I: Should this super-speedy mirrorless persuade you to give the 1-series another look?
07/21, 17:12 EDT Ever since Nikon's 1-series launched with the V1 -- predecessor of today's Nikon V3 -- way back in 2011, the company has taken flak for choosing a smaller image sensor than its main rivals, most of whom have opted for Four Thirds or APS-C type sensors in their mirrorless cameras. Nikon has stuck to its guns, though, firm in its belief that... (more)

Canon G1 X Mark II Review: Brighter lens, faster processor and new looks. But is it better?
07/21, 14:39 EDT Canon turned a few heads back when it released the original PowerShot G1 X: the industry's first compact, large-sensor camera to offer a zoom lens. The 1.5"-type sensor was leaps and bounds larger than what's inside the typical compact camera, and it was married with Canon's popular PowerShot G-series build, ergonomics and functionality....

Canon patents a 45x zoom lens that could go into a waterproof compact
07/21, 13:51 EDT Waterproof cameras are either extremely large -- because they're regular cameras that have been put in an underwater housing -- or lack functionality. The latter is the case in many waterproof compacts that you can take snorkling, which need to stay small and at the same time make sure no water gets in. Canon has had a series of waterproof...
