Nikon 50mm 1.8

Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 S review

The Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S shows the potential for Nikon's new mirrorless Z-mount with excellent sharp-ness. However, its emphasis on image quality means it is actually larger and heavier (and considerably more expensive) than the comparable F-Mount DSLR lens. So is it worth it?
Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED review

Nikon 105mm f/1.4E ED review

There’s no such thing as a perfect lens, but the Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED comes incredibly close. The original 105mm f/1.4 delivers exceptional quality mixing beautiful bokeh and sharp subjects. The lens’ bulky size, however, means photographers will want to be conservative on the shutter speed.
sony a7 iii review xxl 3

Sony A7 III review

With impressive image quality, responsive performance, and an affordable price, the A7III redefines what it means to be an entry-level full-frame camera. It's a huge step forward from the Mark II before it, and gives more expensive models a run for their money.
Nikon Z7 Review

Nikon Z7 review

Nikon’s long awaited full-frame mirrorless cameras are here, and the Z7 is the new flagship model. Combining company firsts like in-body stabilization with classic Nikon ergonomics, the Z7 achieves a bar high. But is it enough to stand up to the company's DSLR pedigree -- or compete with the likes of Sony?
Nikon Nikkor Z 24-70mm F/4 review

Nikon Z 24-70mm f/4 S review

If you're fine with f/4, Nikon's first zoom lens for its full-frame mirrorless Z system will impress you with sharp, colorful images and smooth autofocus performance. The Z 24-70mm f/4 S offers a useful focal length range and, at $1,000, it's a high-quality lens that won't completely break the bank.
Moment Anamorphic lens review

Moment Anamorphic lens transforms your phone into a cinema camera

The Moment Anamorphic lens is a phone accessory lens like no other. It doesn't just change your perspective; it grants you access to a world few outside of Hollywood can afford and creates a truly unique look that can drastically elevate the quality of your phone videos.
nikon z 35mm f 1 8 s review lens 2

Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 S lens review

Nikon made big promises with the new Z mount lenses, but now that they are finally here, did Nikon overpromise? The Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S doesn’t use the Z mount to slim down, but it does capture im-pressive images with sharp centers, smooth bokeh and impressively little distortion. One performance factor, however, may be lacking.
Fujifilm X-T3 Review

Fujifilm X-T3 review

If the X-T2 brought Fujifilm into the modern era, the X-T3 is focused on the future. With a new sensor and processor, completely revamped autofocus, a brilliant electronic viewfinder, and vastly upgraded video, it's the new APS-C camera to beat, and is the perfect blend of style and substance.
Canon EOS R Review

Canon EOS R review

While it may be entering a crowded field, Canon is showing it’s serious about playing in the mirrorless game with the new full-frame EOS R.
Canon EF 85mm f1.4L IS lens review

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS lens review

Combining both a fast f/1.4 aperture and optical image stabilization, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM rejects the choice between speed and stability, finally delivering a prime lens that gives photographers the best of both worlds. The $1,600 prime is worthy of joining any enthusiast or pro’s kit.

Hasselblad’s widest lens turns medium-format X1D into sublime camera for landscapes

Hasselblad's new XCD 21mm f/4 lens turns the medium-format X1D into a travel photographers dream camera, albeit a pricey one. We took one with us to Europe to put it through its paces, and found it to be the perfect combo.
Sigma 105mm F1.4 Art lens Review

Sigma 105mm F1.4 Art review

The Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is the best portrait lens we have used. While its size and weight takes getting used to, you get superb images in return for the effort.
fujifilm x-t100

Fujifilm X-T100 review

The X-T100 is Fujifilm’s least expensive camera with a built-in electronic viewfinder and carries on the standard of design excellence that the X Series is known for. Unfortunately, its slow performance may turn potential customers away, particularly casual users who want a simple, easy to use camera.
Olympus PEN E-PL9 review

Olympus PEN E-PL9 review

With a healthy dose of style, solid performance, and beginner-friendly controls, the E-PL9 is the perfect camera for the smartphone generation. (Well, other than an actual smartphone.) However, its simplistic
Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini Pro

The Ursa Mini Pro is a cinema camera beast, but an approachable one

Combining the best of professional and consumer technologies, the Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini Pro is an approachable, relatively affordable cinema camera for anyone from Hollywood directors to YouTube stars. After shooting with it, it’s hard to go back to a mirrorless camera for video.
Lensbaby Sol 45 review

Lensbaby Sol 45 review

The Lensbaby Sol 45 is a gateway drug into the world of creatively blurred, expressive photos that make pixel peepers’ brains hurt. It brings Lensbaby’s telltale effect, the “sweet spot” of focus, to a new low price and compact size. Read our review to see if purposefully blurred photos are worth $200.
Ricoh Pentax-DFA 50mm F1.4 SDM SW review

Pentax HD FA 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW lens review

Made of 15 glass elements and weighing in at a 2 pounds, the Pentax Star series 50mm F1.4 is no ordinary 50mm lens. The $1,200 premium prime seeks to compete with the likes of the Sigma Art series, and it easily succeeds, giving Pentax DSLR shooters a great option for a high-end normal focal length lens.
Ricoh Pentax K1 II review

Pentax K-1 II review

The original K-1 felt like a purpose-built camera for landscape photographers, but the Mark II offers little in the way of tangible improvements. It’s still good a camera in the right conditions, but it doesn’t warrant an upgrade -- especially in the presence of fiercer competition.
DJI Ronin-S review

DJI Ronin-S review

DJI may have been late to the game, but the Ronin-S was well worth the wait. With superior build quality and ergonomics, an excellent feature set, and the highest payload capacity of any gimbal we’ve yet test-ed, it is nothing short of a new benchmark for one-hanlde gimbals.
sigma 24-70mm f28-art

Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 Art review

With no shortage of competition, it’s difficult for a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens to stand out these days. But thanks to a low price and optical image stabilization, the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 Art offers exceptional value to enthusiasts and professionals while filling the role of a durable workhorse lens.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II review

Canon EOS 6D Mark II review

Canon launched the second generation of its budget full-frame DSLR to a tepid response. Time has not been kind to it, but the 6D Mark II is still a solid camera that’s now offered at a great price. It still doesn’t outclass the competition, but it’s a good choice for Canon shooters in need of an upgrade.
Wacom Intuos review

Wacom Intuos review

Wacom is a household name among graphic designers and photographers -- but can the company’s new budget-friendly pen tablet hold up to those standards? Starting at $80, with 4,096 levels of pressure sen-sitivity and numerous customizable buttons, the Intuos is an easy choice for beginners or creatives on budget.
Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark IV review

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV review

The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark IV is the best all-in-one camera you can buy, whether you’re a photographer or videographer. This DSLR-like camera offers a long lens for great wide-angle and telephoto shots, along with speedy performance.
sigma 14 24mm f2 8 art review 24 feature

Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 Art review

After a decade of standing uncontested, Nikon’s venerable 14-24mm f/2.8 finally has some very strong competition in the form of the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 Art lens. It’s a lens for a small niche, but it could be the new ultra-wide zoom to beat.
Olloclip Filmer's Kit review

Olloclip Filmer’s Kit review

Don’t let the name fool you -- the Filmer’s Kit is for more than just movies, combining several lenses that enhance all the photographic capabilities of your iPhone. The Olloclip Filmer's Kit includes a fisheye, two types of wide angles, a macro and a telephoto lens paired with a case and grip -- all available in smaller sets too.
Fujifilm X-H1 review

Fujifilm X-H1 review

With excellent image stabilization, an improved video mode, and better ergonomics and build quality, the Fujifilm X-H1 builds on the X-T2 in every way -- but it also faces fierce competition.
Panasonic Lumix GH5S

Panasonic Lumix GH5S review

With a revamped sensor designed specifically for video, Panasonic’s GH5S is basically a cinema camera in still camera clothes.
gopro hero 2018 review 1

GoPro Hero (2018) Review

GoPro’s latest Hero is its most focused yet. What it lacks in advanced features it makes up for with best-in-class ease of use and software
Ricoh Theta V

Ricoh Theta V review

Ricoh hasn’t changed the slim, easy to use profile of the Theta V, but it upgraded the guts to deliver great image quality, 4K video, spatial audio, and faster performance.
GoPro Fusion review

GoPro Fusion review

The Fusion is GoPro’s first 360 camera, but it’s also the one that everyone is looking to to finally get 360 right. It shows some great potential, but falls short of being the hero we needed.
Halo Drone Pro review |

Halo Drone Pro review

Halo makes some of our favorite rideable gizmos ever, so when we found out it now makes drones too, we jumped at the opportunity to try one out.
MADV Madventure 360 review

MADV Madventure 360 review

It’s compact and weatherproof, but the Madventure 360 is otherwise a run-of-the-mill 360 cam with little more to offer than a cool party trick.
Steadicam Air 25 review

Steadicam Air 25 review

With a foot pedal and gas lift spring to quickly adjust the height, the Steadicam Air 25 may just be the fastest and easiest to use monopod yet.
DJI Phantom 2

DJI Inspire 2 review (updated for 2018)

The DJI Inspire 2 is without a doubt one of the best drones we’ve ever flown, with top tier specs and features including deep support for 4K cameras.
