Canon and Nikon pro mirrorless wishlist

18 Jun 2018 Gordon Laing

Canon and Nikon may have concentrated on entry to mid-level mirrorless cameras so far, but both companies are expected to launch high-end models by the end of the year. In a special edition of the cameralabs video podcast, Gordon and Doug discuss their wishlist with contributions by six special guests!

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!

04 Jun 2018 Thomas

The Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 ART is an ultra-wide angle zoom lens designed for full-frame cameras and available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. Find out how this latest addition to the acclaimed ART series performs in Thomas's in-depth review!

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!

Fujifilm XT100 review so far

24 May 2018 Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm X-T100 is an entry-level mirrorless camera, aimed at beginners, social photographers and vloggers, sporting a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in viewfinder, tilting touchscreen that can flip sideways to face the subject, 4k video, Bluetooth and Wifi. Check out my preview!

Canon EF-M 11-22mm review so far

22 May 2018 Gordon Laing

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.

Leica 50-200mm f2.8-4 review

21 May 2018 Gordon Laing

The Leica DG 50-200mm f2.8-4 is a high-end telephoto zoom designed for Panasonic and Olympus mirrorless cameras, upon which it delivers equivalent coverage of 100-400mm. In my in-depth review I'll compare it to the Olympus 40-150mm to help you choose the best telephoto zoom!

Olympus 17mm f1.2 PRO review so far

16 May 2018 Gordon Laing

The Olympus 17mm f1.2 PRO is a bright wide lens, aimed at Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless owners who want the best performance and fastest aperture at this flexible focal length. Check out my video overview and sample images!

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!

Panasonic Lumix FT7 / TS7 review so far

11 May 2018 Ken McMahon

The Panasonic Lumix FT7 / TS7 is the company's latest rugged waterproof compact. Waterproof to 31 metres, It replaces the Lumix FT5 / TS5 with an updated 20.4 Megapixel sensor, a stabilised 4.6x zoom and, for the first time on an FT model, a built in 1,170k dot electronic viewfinder.

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!

Panasonic Lumix GX9 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!

Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 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.

Canon EOS M50 review

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!

Sony A9 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. Find out why it's as compelling for sports pros as it is wedding and event shooters in my review!

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!

12 Mar 2018 Gordon Laing

The Sony Alpha A7 III is the latest 'entry-level' model in the full-frame Alpha mirrorless series.

05 Mar 2018 Ken McMahon

Panasonic's Lumix TZ200 / ZS200 is its new flagship travel zoom camera. Like its predecessor it packs a 1in / 20 Megapixel sensor, viewfinder, touchscreen and 4k video into a pocket body, but extends the zoom to 15x and adds 1080 / 120p video and Bluetooth. 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.

19 Feb 2018 Ken McMahon

The Fujifilm XP130 is a rugged compact with 16 Megapixels, a 5x zoom, 3in screen and Wifi with Bluetooth. It's waterproof down to 20m, freezeproof to -10C and can withstand a drop from height of 1.75 metres. Find out how it compares in Ken's review!
