Parrot Anafi review

16 Jul 2018 Adam Juniper

The Parrot Anafi is a mid-range drone with 4k video and a powered gimbal. Parrot's most sophisticated drone to date, it's pitched squarely against the DJI Mavic Air, undercutting it on price and boasting some unique features. Adam takes it for a spin in his full review!

Rode NT USB review

13 Jul 2018 Gordon Laing

The Rode NT USB is a broadcast-quality USB microphone designed to capture a wide range of sound from vocals to musical instruments. The condenser design captures a broader range of frequencies than dynamic mics like the Podcaster, allowing it to deliver more transparent audio. Check out my review!

Long exposure photography tips

03 Jul 2018 Gordon Laing

Long exposures can be used to create beautiful and mysterious-looking images, transforming landscape or city scenes without any post-processing. It's become one of my favourite techniques, and in my tutorial I'll explain everything you need to know to get started with long exposures.

Sony FE 400mm f2.8 GM OSS review so far

27 Jun 2018 Gordon Laing

The FE 400mm f2.8 GM OSS is the first super-telephoto for Sony's full-frame Alpha mirrorless system. Aimed at pro sports and wildlife photographers, it boasts sharp results across the frame, very fast autofocus and is comfortably lighter than rivals. I tried it out for my review-so-far!

Canon and Nikon pro mirrorless wishlist

Sony RX100 VI review so far

12 Jun 2018 Gordon Laing

The Sony RX100 VI is a high-end compact aimed at enthusiasts. It takes the earlier Mark V with its 20 MP sensor, confident focusing, 4k video and super slow motion, but squeezes a longer 24-200mm range into essentially the same body. Check out my hands-on preview with samples!

Fujifilm Instax SQ6 review

28 May 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm Instax SQ6 is an analogue instant camera that looks like the classic Instagram logo. It's Fujifilm's second instant camera to use the Instax Square format that outputs 2.4x2.4in prints, but unlike last year's digital SQ10, embraces the analogue process. Check out my review!

Canon EF-M 11-22mm review so far

Canon's EF-M 11-22mm is an ultra-wide zoom lens for EOS mirrorless cameras with APSC sensors, upon which it delivers an 18-35mm equivalent range, making it ideal for landscape, architecture, large group shots or vlogging at arm's length. Find out more in my review-so-far.

Canon's EOS 4000D is a low-priced DSLR that aims to make creative photography more affordable. It offers an 18 Megapixel APSC sensor, 1080p video, 9-point AF, 3fps and Wifi. There's few frills, but it's a solid spec for the money. Check out my review!

Tamron 70-210mm f4 VC review

09 May 2018 Thomas

The Tamron SP 70-210mm f4 VC is a telephoto full-frame zoom available for Canon and Nikon DSLRs. It's a first from Tamron coupling a slightly longer reach of 210mm and constant f4 aperture, allowing a reduction in size, weight and price compared to f2.8 models. Check out our review!

07 May 2018 Gordon Laing

The Panasonic Lumix GX9 is a mid-range mirrorless camera with a 20 Megapixel Four Thirds sensor, built-in stabilisation, a viewfinder and screen which both tilt, 4k video and Wifi with Bluetooth. It may follow the GX8, but is pitched a little lower with a smaller body too. See my review!

30 Apr 2018 Ken McMahon

Canon's EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 is an entry-level DSLR aimed at beginners, sporting a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, 1080p video, 9-point AF, 3fps shooting, Wifi and NFC. It may lack the frills of higher-end bodies, but provides the basics at a low price. Check out my review!

BenQ SW271 review

24 Apr 2018 Gordon Laing

The BenQ SW271 is a high-performing 27in 4k monitor, aimed at photographers and videographers who desire better colour accuracy than budget displays, but at a more affordable price than rival pro monitors. Check out my review!

Canon EF-M 22mm f2 review so far

18 Apr 2018 Gordon Laing

Canon's EF-M 22mm f2 is a compact prime lens for EOS mirrorless cameras, upon which it delivers classic 35mm equivalent coverage. The f2 focal ratio can introduce a little blurring and the focusing is smooth, but the key selling point is the size and walk-around flexibility. Find out more in my review-so-far.
