Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 review so far

17 Oct 2018 Thomas

The Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 is a general-purpose zoom for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. It offers a classy step-up from Sony’s budget FE 28-70mm f3.5-5.6, and is two-thirds the price of the FE 24-105mm f4, while boasting a brighter aperture than either. Check out Thomas's sample images!

Canon EOS R review

15 Oct 2018 Gordon Laing

The Canon EOS R is a full-frame mirrorless camera with 30 Megapixels, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, 4k video and fully-articulated touchscreen. It’s the first full frame mirrorless camera from Canon and launches the new RF lens mount. Find out if it's the camera you've been waiting for in my in-depth review!

Nikon Z 24-70mm f4S review so far

10 Oct 2018 Thomas

The Nikon Z 24-70mm f4S is a general-purpose zoom for Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. The lens features a constant f4 focal ratio, fast and quiet focusing, and a compact design that’s a perfect match for Z bodies. Ahead of our full review, check out a variety of sample images!

DJI Mavic 2 Pro / Zoom review

08 Oct 2018 Adam Juniper

The DJI Mavic 2 is a mid-range drone available in two versions with different cameras: the Zoom has a 2x optical zoom and 1/2.3in sensor, and the Pro has a fixed lens but a larger 1in sensor for a slightly higher price. Find out if these are the drones you're looking for in Adam's review!

Rode VideoMic Me-L review

02 Oct 2018 Ben Harvey

The Rode VideoMic ME-L is a small microphone designed for iPhones with Lightning ports. It's aimed at vloggers, interviewers and musicians who want to capture higher quality audio than the phone's built-in microphone. Hear the difference in Ben's review!

Sony RX100 VI review

01 Oct 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, EVF, confident focusing and 4k video, but squeezes a longer 24-200mm range into essentially the same body. Find out why it's one of the best pocket travel cameras in my final review!

Fujifilm GFX 50R review - preview

28 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a rangefinder-styled medium format mirrorless camera with 50 Megapixels and a built-in electronic viewfinder. It’s thinner and lighter than the original GFX 50S but sports the same quality. Check out my preview for more details!

Fujifilm Instax SQ20 review - preview

25 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm Instax SQ20 is an instant camera which uses the Install Square format. Like the SQ10, it’s a digital model, letting you view images on-screen and edit them before deciding whether to print. New features include frame-grabbing from video and a 4x digital zoom. Check out my preview!

The Panasonic Lumix S1R is a full-frame mirrorless camera with 47 Megapixels, built-in stabilisation and 4k 60p video. Launched alongside the 24 Megapixel Lumix S1, they’re the debut bodies in a new L-mount alliance with Leica and Sigma. Find out more in my preview!

Nikon COOLPIX P1000 review

24 Sep 2018 Ken McMahon

The Nikon COOLPIX P1000 is a DSLR-styled super-zoom camera with a massive 125x range, taking it from an equivalent of 24-3000mm. The P1000 has a 16 Megapixel sensor, can film 4k video and has a built-in OLED viewfinder and fully-articulated screen. Check out Ken's review!

21 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

The Canon SX70 HS is a super-zoom camera with DSLR-styling, 20 Megapixels and a 65x / 21-1365mm optical zoom. The SX70 HS keeps the body, zoom and flip-screen of its predecessor, but upgrades the resolution and viewfinder while adding 4k video and 10fps. Find out more in my preview.

Sony FE 24mm f1.4 GM review so far

20 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

The Sony FE 24mm f1.4 G Master is a wide-angle prime lens designed for full-frame Alpha mirrorless cameras. The lens delivers a popular field-of-view with a bright f1.4 focal ratio that's ideal in low-light and for a shallow depth-of-field. I've been shooting with a final sample, so check out my review-so-far!

Canon SX740 HS review

17 Sep 2018 Ken McMahon

The Canon SX740 HS is a pocket super-zoom with a 40x / 24-960mm range, 20 Megapixel sensor, 4k video, Wifi and Bluetooth. It's a mild refresh over the SX730 HS, but now employs the latest DIGIC 8 processor to support 4k video and 10fps bursts. Find out if it's for you in my review.

Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4 review

11 Sep 2018 Thomas

The Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4 is a small, light and wide zoom for Canon and Nikon DSLR mounts. Thomas tested it against Tamron's own 15-30mm f2.8, Nikon's 18-35mm f3.5-4.5 and Tokina's 17-35mm f4, so if you're looking for a wide-zoom for a full-frame body check out his Tamron 17-35mm review!

Fujifilm XT3 review so far

10 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm X-T3 is a high-end mirrorless camera which debuts the new 26 Megapixel X-Trans IV sensor with much improved autofocus, burst shooting and movie capabilities, including 30fps bursts and 4k video at 60p in 10 bit. My review-so-far includes sample images, movies and my first-looks video!

Sony RX100 VI - one of the best travel cameras

03 Sep 2018 Gordon Laing

5000 miles, ten countries, one pocket camera - that was the task I set the Sony RX100 VI when it accompanied me on a five week drive through Europe from the UK to Estonia then onto Helsinki and St Petersburg, Russia. Find out why it’s one of the best travel cameras in my blog!

Panasonic Lumix LX100 II review so far

27 Aug 2018 Ken McMahon

The Panasonic Lumix LX100 II is a high-end compact aimed at enthusiasts. It inherits the controls, viewfinder, multi-aspect ratios and 24-75mm f1.7-2.8 lens of the original Mark I but upgrades the resolution, adds a touchscreen, Bluetooth and the latest 4K Photo modes. Check out Ken's review-so-far!

Nikon Z6 review so far

Rode Podcaster review

20 Aug 2018 Gordon Laing

The Rode Podcaster is a high quality USB microphone optimised for spoken vocals and ideally suited for podcasts and voiceovers. With an audio and physical design that mimicks the sound of classic radio presentations, it's become a popular choice. In my review I'll compare it to the NT USB.

13 Aug 2018 Adam Juniper

The Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 is the latest version of DJI's hugely popular drone series aimed at enthusiasts. Equipped with a 1in sensor camera and an improved radio system, it's the best Phantom yet, but is it right for you? Adam finds out in his Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 review!

01 Aug 2018 Thomas

The Sigma 105mm f1.4 ART is one of the brightest portrait lenses available, undercutting its only rival from Nikon on price, while giving it a run for its money on performance. Find out if the Bokeh Master is the best portrait lens in our Sigma 105mm f1.4 review!
