Canon’s EOS RP Is the More Affordable Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera We’ve Been Waiting For

When Canon announced its first full-frame mirrorless camera in the EOS R, there was a lot of excitement. But just making one camera was a bit of a head-scratcher when everyone else was releasing two at a time. Nikon released two versions of its mirrorless platform in the Z6 and Z7, and so did Panasonic with the Lumix S1 and S1R. On top of that, the EOS R doesn’t quite have the specs, resolution, or video chops to really satisfy pros, while its £2,300 (body only) price tag makes it a tough sell to newbs or amateurs looking to upgrade. But with the introduction of the new 26.2-MP EOS RP, Canon’s full-frame mirrorless master plan is starting to make a lot of sense. Read More >>

Fujifilm’s X-T30 Mirrorless Camera is a Little Fussy, But Absolutely Gorgeous

These days, it seems all you hear about are full-frame mirrorless cameras, with their glorious image sensors about the size of a 35mm film frame. Sony, Canon, and Nikon all seem to have their focus set on the market for high-end full-framers, but with few exceptions, Fujifilm has been steadfast, choosing instead to stick with its line of retro-styled shooters with smaller sensors. The new Fujifilm X-T30, which comes in black, silver, or “charcoal silver” is not lacking for style, its £850 body price is quite attractive. There are, of course, disadvantages. Read More >>

Blackmagic’s Pocket Cinema Camera 4K Shoots Incredibly Beautiful, Incredibly Versatile Video

Its latest, the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, comes gunning for the indie filmmaker working on a shoestring budget, and ultimately its footage really delivers—but only if you know what you’re doing.

Olympus Bucks the Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Trend with the OM-D E-M1X

The high-end camera world is in the middle of a revolution. Longtime DSLR makers Canon and Nikon recently jumped on the full-frame mirrorless bandwagon with the new EOS R and Z series systems, with Panasonic joining the party soon with the new Lumix S1 and S1R. Meanwhile, Olympus is taking the road less traveled by. Despite every other company’s rush to create full-frame mirrorless cams, Olympus is sticking with Micro Four Thirds, both now on the new OM-D E-1MX, and in the future. Read More >>

The DJI Osmo Pocket Feels Like the Camcorder of the Future
