24 Jul 2016 Gordon Laing

Canon's PowerShot G7X Mark II is a compact aimed at enthusiasts based around a 1in sensor and a 24-100mm f1.8-2.8 lens.

Find out more in Gordon's review.

Canon SX720 HS review

18 Jul 2016 Ken McMahon

The Canon PowerShot SX720 HS is an easy proposition to get your head around. It's a PowerShot SX710 HS with a longer lens. The fact that Canon has put all its efforts into that one feature tells you all you need to know - this is a pocket super-zoom for people who really want that extra reach. Don't underestimate the…

30 Jun 2016 Gordon Laing

The D7200 is Nikon's new upper mid-range DSLR, packing 24 Mpixels, 6fps and Wifi. Can it replicate the success of the D7100?

The successor to the popular EOS 70D, the 80D sits in the middle of Canon's DSLR range, with a fully-articulated touch-screen, Dual Pixel CMOS AF and built-in Wifi. Is it the perfect DSLR for you? Find out in…

Olympus TOUGH TG Tracker review

20 Jun 2016 Ken McMahon

The Olympus Tough TG-Tracker marks a departure from earlier Tough models. It's a personal action camera designed to compete with the likes of GoPro and its imitators. As such it's smaller than conventional waterproof compacts and dispenses with a lot of what makes them suitable as general purpose models, the main omission being a zoom lens. In its place…

Nikon D500 review

13 Jun 2016 Gordon Laing

The Nikon D500 is a pro DSLR with a 20 Megapixel APSC sensor, 10fps shooting, a new 153-point AF system inherited from the D5, a large viewfinder, weather sealing, a 3.2in tilting touch-screen, dual card slots, 4k movies and built-in Wifi and Bluetooth.

Canon EOS 1300D / Rebel T6 review

06 Jun 2016 Ken McMahon

The EOS 1300D / T6 is Canon's latest entry-level DSLR and replacment for the two year old 1200D / T5. It's a minor update which retains the older model's body, 18 Megapixel sensor and viewfinder with much the same set of stills and movie shooting modes. What's new is built-in Wifi for remote control and downloading images to a smartphone…

Fujifilm's X-Pro2 is the new flagship in the X-series, featuring a hybrid viewfinder, dual SD slots, weather-sealing and a new 24 Megapixel sensor with a broader array of Phase Detect AF.

Panasonic Lumix TZ100 / ZS100 review

24 Apr 2016 Ken McMahon

The Lumix TZ100 / ZS100 resets the clock on Travel zoom development. Rather than exclusively continue with ever longer zooms, Panasonic has boldly split the range, leaving the TZ80 / ZS60 to pursue the long zoom market and allowing the new TZ100 / ZS100 to go for photographers willing to sacrifice some reach for improved quality. The TZ100 /…

Fujifilm X70 review

04 Apr 2016 Gordon Laing

Fujifilm's X70 is a high-end compact which packs the quality and control of the company's mirrorless cameras into a body that'll just about squeeze into your pocket. The highlight is of course the X-Trans II sensor, the same 16 Megapixel APS-C sensor found in models like the XT1 and XT10, which coupled with the same image processing unsurprisingly allows…

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 / ZS60 review

29 Mar 2016 Ken McMahon

The Lumix TZ80 / ZS60 is the natural successor to the TZ70 / ZS50, the previous flagship travel zoom from Panasonic. Forgetting about the TZ100 / ZS100 for a moment, the TZ80 / ZS60 remains the obvious choice for those looking to pack an awesomely long zoom range into a pocketable format. Although the TZ80 / ZS60 retains the 24-720mm…

Sony Alpha A6300 review

15 Mar 2016 Gordon Laing

Sony's Alpha A6300 is the long-awaited successor to the best-selling A6000, employing a new 24 Megapixel APSC sensor with 425 embedded phase-detect AF points covering 99% of the area. It'll shoot with CAF at 11fps and has 4k video at 30p and 1080 at 120p. Find out why it adds up to one of the most confident cameras around!

Canon PowerShot G5X review

07 Mar 2016 Gordon Laing

The G5X is a compact DSLR-styled camera with a 1in sensor, viewfinder, fully-articulated screen and 24-100mm zoom. The sensor, lens and processor are from the best-selling G7X, but rehoused here with a bigger grip, extra dial, USB-charging, flip-out screen and a viewfinder. Find out if it's for you in Gordon's review!

23 Feb 2016 Gordon Laing

The Nikon DL 18-50mm is a compact camera aimed at enthusiasts with a 20 Megapixel 1in sensor, tilting OLED touchscreen, 4k video and an unusually wide zoom equivalent to 18-50mm. Announced in February 2016 alongside two other models differentiated mostly by their lens ranges, the DL series represents Nikon's much-anticipated entry into the now popular 1in fixed lens market, pioneered…

Canon EOS 1Dx Mark II preview

02 Feb 2016 Gordon Laing

The EOS 1Dx Mark II is Canon's new flagship DSLR, aimed at professional sports or wildlife photographers and photo journalists. Announced in February 2016, in time for the big sporting events of the year, it's unashamedly a specialist camera, engineered to be tough, fast and confident. It features a new 20.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor which can shoot up to…

Sony Alpha A7s Mark II review

01 Feb 2016 Gordon Laing

Sony's Alpha A7s Mark II is a full-frame mirrorless camera that's optimized for 4k video, particularly in very low light. Sony's essentially taken the 12 Megapixel sensor of the original A7s Mark I and slotted it into the body of the A7r Mark II. As such the sensor still delivers clean 4k video - and photos - at high…

Olympus PEN F preview

27 Jan 2016 Gordon Laing

The Olympus PEN F is a rangefinder-styled mirrorless camera with a stabilized 20 Megapixel sensor and a built-in electronic viewfinder. Launched in January 2016, it shares a number of design cues from the original Olympus PEN film camera from the 1960s, but unlike the existing PEN series, the new PEN F is the first to feature a built-in EVF. In…

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark II review

14 Dec 2015 Ken McMahon

The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II is an update to the original RX10 (mark I) which retains its predecessor's 8.3x 24-200mm constant f2.8 zoom lens. The most significant update is to the sensor, which retains the older model's 20 Megapixel resolution as well as its 1 inch physical dimension, but introduces a new stacked architecture with embedded signal processing and…

Panasonic Lumix FZ330 / FZ300 review

07 Dec 2015 Ken McMahon

The Lumix FZ330 / FZ300 updates the three year old Lumix FZ200 retaining the older model's constant aperture 24x / f2.8 lens and 12 Megapixel MOS sensor. The Venus processor is updated along with a much bigger and more detailed viewfinder and a higher resolution screen. The viewfinder now has an eye sensor to automatically switch it on when…

Sony RX100 IV review

01 Dec 2015 Gordon Laing

Sony's RX100 IV is its latest compact with a big sensor. Now with 4k and ultra-slow motion video, find out if it's the best version yet in my preview.

Canon G9X review

18 Nov 2015 Gordon Laing

Canon's PowerShot G9X represents the continuing evolution of pocket cameras: small and smart like many of its predecessors, but crucially packing a larger 1in sensor. The sensor is the key here as it's three to four times larger than those in most phones and compact cameras, allowing the G9X to deliver noticeably better quality in low light. Canon's not the…

Nikon COOLPIX L840 review

16 Nov 2015 Ken McMahon

The Nikon COOLPIX L840 updates the year older COOLPIX L830, extending the optical zoom from 34x to 38x and adding Wifi and NFC. There's a new Snap-back zoom button, full resolution continuous shooting gets a little bit of a boost, the number of shots you can get from a set of AA batteries is increased and there's a new…

Fujifilm XT10 review

05 Nov 2015 Gordon Laing

Fujifilm's XT10 is a lighter version of the XT1 mirrorless camera, bringing its quality to a broader audience. Find out how they differ in my review.
