Samsung Galaxy Camera

In a not-so-surprising move, Samsung has blended their popular phone technologies with those from the camera department, producing an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean camera with 3G and 4G connectivity (extra money for a plan). This is the first phone to in...

Fujifilm X-E1

Fujifilm has announced an update to their mirrorless line in the X-E1, which sits at a lower price point than the expensive X-Pro1 yet still houses the same 16 megapixel X-Trans sensor that, without an anti-aliasing filter, pulls amazing amounts o...

Sony Alpha NEX-6

The NEX-6 joins Sony's mirrorless line and sits somewhere between the newly announced NEX-5R and older NEX-7. Although priced a few hundred dollars less than the NEX-7, the NEX-6 is almost assuredly the better buy for most users. It includes t...

Sony DSC-RX1

The RX1 is essentially an RX100 on steroids, a rangefinder-esque camera without the rangefinder. Sony has managed to squeeze a full-frame 24 megapixel sensor into a body no larger than the recently announced NEX-6 with kit zoom. The caveat here, a...

Olympus XZ-2 iHS

A relatively dramatic upgrade from the aging but excellent XZ-1, the XZ-2 gains the iHS moniker that accompanies Olympus's latest high-speed cameras. This is due to the switch to a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor that should offer better high ISO perform...

Fujifilm XF1

The XF1 is Fujifilm's 2012 advanced compact, and it has some new tricks. The camera packs a 12 megapixel 2/3" sensor, a bit larger than those found in competitors like the LX7 or S100, and performs the EXR abilities that Fujifilm users ha...

Canon PowerShot G15

The G15 stands as proof that Canon hasn't moved entirely from the smaller sensors that made up the G-series prior to the G1 X. The G15 is the worthy successor to 2010's G12, with the most notable improvement found in the 28-140mm f1.8-2.8 ...

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

Canon has leapfrogged Nikon's P510 with the SX50 HS, a camera sporting an improbably long 24-1200mm 50x optical zoom. They're claiming improved image stabilization, up to 4.5 stops, but hand-holding 1200mm is bound to be difficult. Other i...

Pentax K-5 II

One of the shortcomings of the very good K-5, and indeed all of Pentax's DSLRs, is the adequate if not outstanding autofocus system. The K-5 II (as well as the new "s" version) just might offer a real remedy in the new SAFOX X autofo...

Canon PowerShot S110

The S110 is a disappointingly modest upgrade to the very good S100 and it may not do enough to really differentiate itself from the rest of the pack. The camera still sports the same 12 megapixel sensor and 24-120mm f2.0-5.9 lens, but trades the G...

At $2100 body-only or $2700 with the kit 24-85mm lens, the D600 matches the 6D as the cheapest full frame release ever. Nikon has cut a few corners in order to avoid cannibalizing D800 sales, but the D600 offers a fantastic value for those who mig...
