Canon Chases Film-Makers With the Slick New 80D DSLR

Canon’s very happy with all the people clamouring to buy their cameras for filmmaking despite not necessarily knowing what words like “rolling shutter” and “aperture” mean. Its latest DSLR is perhaps more explicitly geared towards film-makers than any camera it’s released made before. Read More >>

We Took Some 50 Megapixel Shots With the Canon 5DS for You to Gawk At

Canon’s new high res DSLR, the 5DS, shoots giant 50 megapixel images. That’s a crapload of resolution you probably don’t need. But it’s fun to look at anyway! We had the privilege of toying around with a pre-production beta sample of the camera. Here are the results. Read More >>

You Can Discover New Planets With a DSLR 

Wouldn't it be cool to discover a planet circling a lonely star light years away from Earth? Maybe you'd even get to name it. Actually exploring deep space is hard, but as IEEE Spectrum's David Schneider points out, detecting exoplanets is pretty simple, simple enough that a basic DSLR and a telephoto lens can do it.

Canon 7D Mark II: The Best DSLR for Sports and Wildlife, but That’s All

When the Canon 7D came out in 2009, it soon became one of the most popular DSLRs ever. It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-orientated 5D Mark II. Five years later, the 7D Mark II makes its debut with plenty of powerful specs, yet it's not likely to be the same wide-reaching hit as the original. Read More >>

Canon 7D Mark II: The Longed-For Successor to a Classic DSLR is Here

Oh my god, it's finally here. The Canon 7D Mark II, probably the most anticipated, rumoured, speculated-about camera in years is ready to make its debut. It's been five years since the original 7D hit shelves in 2009 and captured imaginations, so you better believe the expectations are high for the Mark II to be the messiah of mid-range DSLRs.

Over the last few years top DSLRs have gotten so good that they're not just for photographers; they're used by filmmakers and producers to shoot high-quality video, too. The Nikon D750, though, is the first pro-DSLR to come with a tilting screen, a significant ergonomic improvement. Read More >>

Nikon’s D4S: A Pro DSLR in a Familiar, Jumbo Package

At the professional level, the ultra-powerful DSLR is still mighty important, and with that in mind, Nikon is upgrading its beastly D4, with the D4s, a faster flagship shooter that's better than low-light than its older namesake. There's a lot to love about this camera. Here are the highlights. Read More >>

As Nikon’s Entry-Level DSLR Gets a Bump, Its 18-55mm Kit Lens Shrinks

Nikon just gave its entry-level DSLR a pretty obvious spec bump, but along with the new camera, Nikon's introducing a new version of the standard kit lens that ships with the product and will probably be used by many beginners on this and other cheaper Nikon DSLRs. Read More >>

Canon 70D Review: DSLR Video Nirvana Comes More Into Focus

Canon has spent years making incremental improvements to its DSLR line's video features, yet it's been ages since we've seen a major step forward in functionality. While the 60D added some nice touches, its successor, the EOS 70D, makes one very specific leap towards excellence. Read More >>

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Hands-On: So Hot, You Won’t Believe It’s Mirrorless

The new mirrorless OM-D EM-1 is so much camera you won't believe its mirroress. Or how small it is. In fact, it's the successor to the 2010 E-5, the last Olympus camera that actually had a mirror box inside. I just shot with amongst the first production samples in the world at a launch event in New York, and I can safely say that almost no one needs a DSLR anymore. This camera is a serious business photography machine. Read More >>

Sony A3000: The Cheapest Beginner DSLR Ever (Well, Sorta-DSLR)

Sony's A3000 DLSR is cheap. Super cheap. It costs £370 paired with a 18-55mm kit lens. These days, that's more or less the price of an advanced point-and-shoot camera from Canon, and it's considerably cheaper than Sony's badass RX100 II point-and-shoot. So what gives? Oh and there's a refresh of Sony's mid-range NEX-5 series too. Read More >>

Sony A99 Review: At Long Last a Real Flagship DSLR From Sony

Sony cameras have come a long way over the last few years — to the point that they're competitive with the twin monoliths of Canon and Nikon. The company has accomplished this feat by making gear that's different from other stuff out there. Until now, that success has been limited to point-and-shoots like the RX100 and the fabulous NEX cameras. Here's a big, pricey professional flagship to match Sony's successes at lower price points.
