13.1mp | 5.0x | $799
Canon refreshes its large-sensor compact with a revised 1.5-inch-type sensor, faster processor, and a brighter, wider and longer zoom lens.

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!

24.3mp | 3.1x | $781
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 | $1,399
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!

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. With our latest lens review on the Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH MEGA O.I.S. G Vario, this lens bucks the trend with improved sharpness, low distortion as well as a smaller and lighter build -- making it... (more)

Nikon V3 Shooter’s Report I: Should this super-speedy mirrorless persuade you to give the 1-series another look?
Featured Story 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?
Featured Story 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....

Nikon D810 First Shots posted: See Nikon's new megapixel monster up close and personal
Featured Story 07/16, 18:19 EDT When the D800 was first released it made a big splash with its massive 36.3-megapixel full-frame resolution. Nikon shortly followed with the D800E, which used a different sensor filtering arrangement to effectively cancel-out the effect of the optical low-pass filter and thus increasing image resolution. With the inclusion of Nikon's... (more)

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...

Steady Camera lets you capture shake-free video footage with your iPhone
07/18, 17:56 EDT Apple's iPhone is a great tool for both photographers and videographers, as the masses of iPhone photos and videos available on the web demonstrate quite impressively.

This epic stop motion hyperlapse journey through Barcelona, Spain took over 360 hours in the making
07/18, 16:30 EDT "In few other cities is it possible to walk from spectacular location to spectacular location," writes photographer Rob Whitworth as an introducion to his video "Barcelona GO!" on Vimeo. And few other videos we've seen so far take us as spectacularly from location to location as this one. Even if you're unfamiliar with most of the... (more)

The new Sigma dp2 Quattro has a very unique design. Here's how you hold it! (VIDEO)
07/18, 13:13 EDT Sigma's DP-line of Foveon-based compact cameras have always sat in a special niche of the camera market. The previous generation of "Merrill" DP cameras were rather boxy and utilitarian on the exterior, but the APS-C, three-layered Foveon sensor on the inside let this compact camera produce some extraordinary images at low ISOs (venture...

Panasonic FZ1000 vs. Sony RX10 match-up updated, post-price drop!
07/17, 15:26 EDT When we previously evaluated the stellar RX10 against its new (and only) competitor, the FZ1000, our decision was easy. The $1,299 RX10, while incredible, simply wasn't 44.44% better than the $899 FZ1000. Panasonic won the race by a country mile. We'd no sooner handed the bridge-camera crown to the Panasonic FZ1000 than we received news of... (more)
