Interested in a high-quality 28-300mm eq. constant f/2.8 zoom lens mounted in front of a sensor that is larger than conventional all-in-one long zooms, but that fits comfortably in a coat pocket and won't break the bank? Read our in-depth Olympus Stylus 1 review to discover all of the great (and a few not-so-great) things this one-of-a-kind little digital camera has to offer!

The full-frame, FX-format Nikon Df takes the same great sensor and processor pairing of the professional Nikon D4, and places them in a weather-sealed, retro-styled body that's rich with external controls. (And it does so at half the price of the pro camera.) It's arguably the best available-light shooter around, but is it the right camera for you? Read our Nikon Df review, and find out!

Panasonic's "micro" Micro Four Thirds camera, the tiny Panasonic GM1 gets our full review treatment. The tiny camera features the same sensor and processor as its larger sibling, the GX7, but Panasonic has done some innovative engineering to pack all that power into such a small and pocketable digital camera. Check out our Panasonic GM1 review to see why this camera was voted the Best Pocket Interchangeable Lens Camera of 2013!

Canon's updated their powerful and nearly-pocketable flagship PowerShot with the new Canon G16. We've just completed our review of this high-end compact digital camera, and while it's not strikingly different from the previous model, it does bring a big update to the table: speed. With vastly increased AF speed and continuous shooting frames per second -- plus built-in Wi-Fi -- the Canon G16 seems like a surefire upgrade, but is it significant enough to make G15 owners yearn for the sweet '16? Read our Canon G16 review to find out!

We've put it through its paces, and the Sony RX100 II really sets a new bar for pocket camera performance. The original RX100 already dominated the competition, and the new model is a substantial step up from it in a number of areas. Check out our Sony RX100 II review, to see why we voted it our Best Pocket Camera of 2013! Shopping for a really superb pocket camera? Read the review!

Does an NEX by another name still shoot as sweet? First Shots with the Sony A5000
Featured Story Mar 15, 12:26 EDT The confusion caused by Sony's dropping of the "NEX" branding from their popular mirrorless APS-C line-up has apparently done little to quell the photo community's enthusiasm about the line itself, as the Sony A6000 has been one of the most read-about cameras on our site since it was announced last month. Those of you interested in the... (more)

Featured Story Mar 13, 00:01 EDT Nikon continues to advance and improve their mirrorless camera lineup with a new flagship model, the Nikon 1 V3.

Leica presents "Let Us Roam", a series of short films about skateboarding (VIDEO)
Mar 14, 13:49 EDT Generally speaking, Leica isn't the first name you think of when you think skate photography. The punk and grunge ethos that infused skating from its early days seems hard to reconcile with the precision engineering and incredibly steep pricetags of Leica gear. Yet Leica has helped put together a short film series called Let Us Roam, looking... (more)
Safari snapping BeetleCam gets stabilized (VIDEO)
Mar 14, 13:27 EDT A few years back, a pair of brothers from the UK designed a special, remote control rig for getting up close and personal with animals in the wild.

More information comes to light about the last days of Calumet
Mar 14, 13:06 EDT Yesterday, Calumet Photographic suddenly closed its stores. For many (us included) this move came out of the blue—but the story behind the scenes seems to suggest that this may have been in the works for a while.

You make the call - Is the D4S the fairest of them all? Nikon D4S First Shots posted (w/ISO 409,600!)
Mar 13, 17:05 EDT The Nikon D4S has an interesting dilemma: there are no other cameras in our Comparometer that go up to ISO 409,600, and therefore no competition to duel in that premium high altitude. Ah well, there are still a myriad of intriguing comparisons for you to make with our lab test First Shots from Nikon's flagship professional DSLR. For... (more)
Photographer gets in trouble for flying drone over scene of Harlem building explosion
Mar 13, 14:17 EDT The current legal status of using drones for photography is extremely nebulous. There has been some movement towards them being outside of the grasp of the FAA, but densely packed cities are not looking too fondly on their use, and after a crash in New York, a drone controller was arrested for reckless endangerment. Given that fact, you can... (more)
