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.

17 Apr 2018 Gordon Laing

The Canon EOS M50 is a mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, viewfinder, Wifi and Bluetooth, and becomes Canon's first mirrorless with 4k video, a fully-articulated touch-screen, eye detection and silent shooting options. Find out more in my review!

09 Apr 2018 Gordon Laing

Sony's Alpha A9 is a pro mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel full-frame sensor and fully electronic shutter featuring 20fps shooting, silent and vibration-free operation, no viewfinder blackout, 4k video, and autofocus across the whole frame.

Fujifilm XH1 review

26 Mar 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm X-H1 is the new flagship in the mirrorless X-series. It takes the X-T2 with its 24 Megapixel APSC X-Trans III sensor and adds built-in stabilisation, a touch-screen, bigger grip, enhanced movie features and Bluetooth. Find out more in my in-depth review!

WD My Passport Ultra review

21 Mar 2018 Gordon Laing

WD's My Passport Ultra is a portable drive that's powered by your computer or console over a single USB cable and provides plenty of storage for backup, data transportation or simply expanding a system that's stuffed to the brim. In my review I compared an older 1TB model against a new 4TB version.

Retro Cameras book review

20 Mar 2018 Gordon Laing

Retro Cameras is a compact and stylish hardback book that tells the story behind 100 vintage film cameras. Pitched as a guide for collectors but equally appealing to any classic camera lover, it presents each model with a short history and original product shots. Find out more in my review!

Sony Imaging Pro Support review

20 Feb 2018 Gordon Laing

Canon and Nikon may be the established names in the pro sports market, but Sony's hungry for a piece of the action. In 2017 it launched it's fastest pro body yet, the Alpha A9, alongside an enhanced pro support program. In this article I'll take a look at the program so far.

Leica 200mm f2.8 review

29 Jan 2018 Gordon Laing

The Leica 200mm f2.8 is a high-end telephoto for Micro Four Thirds bodies. Mounted on a Panasonic or Olympus mirrorless, it delivers 400mm equivalent coverage, or 560mm when fitted with its supplied 1.4x tele-converter. In my in-depth review I compare it to the Olympus 300mm!
