Fujifilm GFX 100 review

Fujifilm GFX 100 review: Awesomely expensive

The 102-megapixel Fujifilm GFX 100 boasts the best image quality of any camera we've ever reviewed. New stabilization and focus systems make it more versatile and capable. But at $10,000, most photographers -- even pros -- are probably better off spending their money elsewhere.

Nikon Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S lens review

Nikon's first portrait lens for its full-frame mirrorless series proves f/1.8 is all you need for bokehlicious background blur. By taking a more conservative approach and avoiding the wider apertures the Z mount is capable of, Nikon delivers an affordable lens that also happens to be very sharp.
dji osmo mobile 3 review featured

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 review: Budget blockbuster

DJI's third-generation Osmo Mobile is better, easier, and even cheaper than its predecessors. If you shoot a lot of video on your phone, it's the best accessory you can add to improve the quality of your handheld footage, although it may not offer enough settings to keep power users happy.
kodak smile instant digital printer review feat

Kodak Smile Instant Digital Printer review

A $100 mobile printer, the Kodak Smile can spit out physical copies of the photos on your phone, but it doesn't end there. It can also “print” videos, thanks to a clever augmented reality system that scans a print and plays the associated video on your mobile device.
Insta360 Go

Insta360 Go review: Everyday life becomes a (boring) movie

Weighing 20 grams and fitting easily into the palm of your hand, the Insta360 Go tries to breathe new life into the life-logging category. Combined with an easy-to-use mobile app that auto-edits vide-os with the help of AI, it could be the life-logging camera you use, but probably won't.
sigma 40mm f14 art lens review product 10

Sigma 40mm F1.4 Art lens review

40mm is an awkward focal length, but the Sigma 40mm F1.4 Art is so good that you'll want to use it in place of your 35 or 50mm. Extremely sharp across the frame, it's one of the best prime lenses we've ever tested, and offers beautiful subjective qualities.
kodak mobile film scanner review hands on hkg 0923

Kodak’s Mobile Film Scanner takes film from attic to Instagram

The Google Cardboard of film scanners, the Kodak Mobile FIlm Scanner mixes a cardboard construction and the camera that you already have in your pocket to get that film in the attic onto Instagram without the major investment. But how good is a scanner that simply uses a smartphone camera?
Insta360 One X review

Insta360 One X review

The Insta360 One X is the most capable consumer 360 camera you can buy. It's not quite the savior immersive imaging needs, but it's still the closest thing we've got to a 360 camera that does everything right, thanks to creative editing controls and fun accessories. If you want a 360 camera, it's worth a look.
Sigma 28mm F1.4 Art lens

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art review

With spot-on autofocus, excellent image quality, and lots of character, the Sigma 28mm F1.4 Art is one of the best wide-angle prime lenses ever made. It's not cheap, but it’s still less than the competition and offers plenty of value for the money.
Vuze XR Review

Vuze XR 360-degree camera review

More than a 360 camera, the Vuze XR's dual lenses can flip forward for a 3D, 180-degree view. That makes it more versatile than most its peers. At $440, however, it remains a niche camera for photographers with very specific needs. Read our full Vuze XR Review.
Nikon Nikkor Z 14-30mm F/4 S

Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 review

The widest lens available in Nikon's mirrorless Z mount, the Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 S pulls off a number of wins, including accommodating screw-in filters. It's also very sharp and considerably more compact than many ultra-wide zooms. Is it enough to warrant its $1,300 price?

Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S review

Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras now have a bright, versatile workhorse zoom that can be used without an adapter. So just how does the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S stack up? We put it through the paces to see if this premium lens is worth its $2,300 price.
fujifilm instax mini liplay review feat

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay review

By going digital and adding a built-in mobile printer, the Instax Mini LiPlay puts more features into a smaller form factor than previous Instax cameras, while still being every bit as fun. A new sound-recording feature also lets you embed audio messages into printed photos.
canon eos rebel s3 review sl3 feat

Canon EOS Rebel SL3 review

Canon's latest beginner DSLR is fun and easy-to-use, but in merely copying the EOS M50, it doesn't make a strong case for why you shouldn't pick up a mirrorless camera instead. The SL3's best features revolve around live view shooting, where its optical viewfinder is useless.
Nikon Z6 Hands-on

Nikon Z 6 review

The Nikon Z 6 is the little sibling to the new mirrorless Z 7 -- but for some photographers, the cheaper Z 6 may be the better option. The Nikon Z 6 is a 24.5-megapixel full frame mirrorless with a snappy 12 fps max burst speed. See where the $2,000 camera beats the $3,400 model in our Nikon Z 6 review.
polaroid originals onestep 2 review feat

Polaroid OneStep 2 review

Polaroid returned as Polaroid Originals with a relaunch of a 1970s era instant film camera. The Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 is a true Polaroid, from the classic design to the imperfect exposures, but also brings in a few modern features. See where the camera hits the mark in our Polaroid OneStep 2 review.
nikon coolpix b600 review feat

Nikon Coolpix B600 Review

The Nikon Coolpix B600 has two big things going for it -- a 60x zoom lens and a $330 price point. But does the camera cut too many features to fit the budget price? Find the good and the bad for on the budget zoom camera in our Nikon B600 review.
DJI Osmo Action Review

DJI Osmo Action hands-on review

With two screens, screw-on filters, and a very GoPro-like user interface, DJI's first real action camera takes a stab at dethroning the king. And it might just succeed. The mobile app leaves something to be desired, but the hardware is already very refined for a first-generation product.
Ricoh GR III

Ricoh GR III review

The Ricoh GR III puts a large, APS-C sensor inside a camera body that's barely bigger than a point-and-shoot. Combined with a stunning 28mm f/2.8 lens, it offers a shooting experience as easy as your phone, but with much better results. For street and travel photography, it's hard to beat.
Nikon Coolpix A1000 Review

Nikon Coolpix A1000 Review

The Nikon Coolpix A1000 has several things a smartphone doesn’t, like a big 30x optical zoom and plenty of physical controls. But can a 1/2.3-inch sensor deliver good image quality? Find out how the $480 compact zoom camera fares in our Nikon Coolpix A1000 review.
sony a6400 review feat

Sony A6400 review

The A6400 continues Sony's approach of forging ahead with technological advancements while leaving an unrefined user experience behind. The new A.I.-aided autofocus is so incredible to see in action, we almost forgot about the nagging interface issues.
Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Edge 35 Optic reivew

Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Edge 35 Optic review

The Lensbaby Edge 35, part of the Composer Pro optic swap system, creates tilt-shift-like blur without the tilt-shift price. Made for photographers who buck tradition, it opens up new ways to work with blur in your images. But is this type of special effect lens a real tool, or just a toy?
Fujifilm X-T30 Hands-on

Fujifilm X-T30 review

At just $900, the Fujifilm X-T30 keeps pace with the $1,500 X-T3 in many respects. It is an impressively versatile machine and is great as either a first camera for beginners or a second camera for pros already shooting on the larger X-T3. Even with stiff competition from Sony, the Fujifilm X-T30 finds ways to shine.

Rylo 360 camera review

It can’t quite replace your action camera, but the Rylo shows a glimmer of what the future of consumer video could be.
Panasonic Lumix S1

Panasonic Lumix S1 review

The $2,500 Lumix S1 is out to beat Canon, Nikon, and Sony at their own game. It throws conventional wisdom to the wind, offering a bigger, heavier, but more capable camera that targets professional photographers. It may not have broad appeal, but it brings more to the table than any other camera for those who can afford it.
Canon EOS RP

Canon EOS RP review

The EOS RP is the cheapest new full-frame camera ever made, and that's certainly something. But to bring us the RP, Canon had to take away features and performance we've come to expect from full-frame cameras. Do customers in the market for a cheap, compact camera even need full frame?
Panasonic Lumix S1R Review

Panasonic Lumix S1R review

The Lumix S1R is one of the most capable cameras ever made, from its robust build to extensive feature set. But its key feature, the 187MP high resolution mode, is something few customers will have use for. Here's how it stacks up to the competition, as well as the more affordable Lumix S1.
Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm f/4 Pro review

Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4.0 IS Pro review

The Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4 IS Pro packs in a versatile zoom range, great close-up capabilities, and impressive optical stabilization inside a single lens. It's the closest thing Olympus makes to a lens you'll never have to take off of your camera. But can one lens really do it all, or is it simply too good to be true?
Sony RX100 VI review

Sony RX100 VI review

The sixth generation of Sony's powerful but compact RX100 camera delivers more zoom, incredible speed, robust 4K video, and still fits in the palm of your hand. Loaded with tech and with no competition, it also gets away with a very high premium.
Yuneec Mantis Q review

Yuneec Mantis Q review

Yuneec’s high-end drones are arguably the ones to beat in terms of flight control, design, and their photographic capabilities. But the company has struggled to make a low-end drone that makes sense, and the Mantis Q is no exception. It’s missing functionality that should be included in a drone at its price point.

Hasselblad X1D-50c review

Sony A9

Sony A9 review

Sony wowed the photography world when it introduced the sports-oriented A9 with its 20 fps electronic shutter and no-blackout viewfinder. A year later, the camera is still going strong -- and is yet to be dethroned. We put it to the test at the racetrack to see how it performs in the real world.
Olympus OM-D E-M1X review

Olympus OM-D E-M1X review

The OM-D E-M1X is Olympus' most professional camera yet, and it apparently bends the laws of physics. Olympus previously claimed that 6.5 stops of shake reduction was a theoretical limit for image stabilization. The E-M1X pushes that up to 7.5 stops when paired with a compatible lens.
Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K review

Blackmagic Design has once again changed the game. No other company could have made this camera, and while it's not perfect, nothing else brings this much value to the table. At $1,300, the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K simply can't be beat.
