Nikon D5500

Nikon D5500

The Nikon D5500 is the company's third camera in the D5xx series, positioned as a solid entry-level body between the D3300 and D7200. All three share the same image quality. The differences? The D5500 is Ni...
Canon EOS M3

Canon EOS M3

Did you know Canon has a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera? Well, they do, but not in the U.S. The Canon EOS M3 follows the original "M" launched in 2012 and updated to the M2 a year ago. The new EOS M...
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

With a new 40 megapixel mode and improved in-body image stabilization, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II is already one of the hottest cameras of the year. As All About the Gear approaches its second anniversary, CameraLab...

Doug Shoots Film!

What's gotten into Doug? He hadn't shot a roll of film for more than 15 years, but after collecting used M-mount lenses (Leica and Voigtlander) to use with his Sony a7-family cameras, he suddenly realized, "He...
4.0Surprisingly Good Camera

Samsung NX1

Although it’s the size of a small DSLR, the mirrorless NX1 is packed with best of breed features from other great cameras: a great tilting touch LCD, 4k video and a whopping 15fps shutter with a 70-frame (RAW file) buffer.
4.2Refinement of a Favorite

Fuji X-100T

Fujifilm’s X100 series of cameras have built a very loyal following including some high-profile photographers. So what’s new in the third generation of this retro-styled fixed prime-lens mirrorless camera?
4.2Full-Frame IBIS

Sony A7II

Sony's A7II update brings in-body 5-axis image stabilization and a more robust body that's the same height and width, just a bit thicker and 100g heavier.

Panasonic Lumix GM5

Panasonic bills the Lumix GM5 as the world’s smallest micro four-thirds camera, replacing the same-size GM1. The sensor is the same as in the Lumix GM1, but the new camera sports a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) instead of an in-body flash.

Lytro Illum

A year ago we reviewed the original Lytro camera. Doug didn’t think Lytro was really in the camera business, but rather into technology licensing. But that camera’s successor, the Illum, is much more like what we think of as a camera, albeit with radically new light-field technology.

Canon 7D Mark II

To say that this upgrade to Canon’s popular 7D has been “long anticipated” would be an understatement. It’s been a long five years since Canon announced the original. Frederick and Doug ask, “Was it worth the wait?”

Fuji X-30

The Fujifilm X30 is a replacement for the X20. The new camera has an electronic viewfinder instead of a rangefinder and includes a lot of new features. It’s relatively inexpensive at $600 including the non-interchangeable 4x zoom lens, but it’s still too large for a pocket.

Nikon D750

Although discontinued two years ago, the Nikon D700 was one of the most-loved digital cameras ever made. Six years since the D700 was introduced, Nikon has finally come out with the 24MP D750.
Girl looking at iMac

Apple 27″ iMac Retina 5K

After a year of anticipation, Apple have finally announced its 27” iMac with Retina 5K Display. It took less than an hour for both Frederick and Doug to jump on in with both feet and place their orders. Now t...

Nikon D810

Nikon’s original D800 and D800e 36MP monsters, launched in 2012, were impressive -- even groundbreaking -- but also flawed in some ways. The company’s new D810 is an evolutionary refinement of the pair. Though ...

Panasonic Lumix LX100

The new Panasonic/Lumix LX100 is getting a lot of buzz for being the smallest still-image camera that can also shoot 4K video. It seems to be aimed directly at Sony’s third-generation RX100 mkIII.

Sigma DP2 Quattro

Based on Sigma’s new and unique Foveon X3 sensor, the Quattro can capture images of remarkable color, clarity and depth. But according to Doug, that’s only for certain subjects and under the right conditions....

Panasonic Lumix FZ1000

Panasonic has just released the latest in their eight-year series of “bridge cameras” -- the Lumix FZ1000. It’s as easy to use as a point-and-shoot but the size of a small DSLR because of its 16x zoom. Who’s...

Sony RX100 MK III

Sony updates its popular RX100 with a new third version. It's already being heralded as the best compact. But at $800, it’s also the most expensive.

Sony A7S

The Sony A7s is being heralded as “Camera of the Year” by some reviewers, Frederick and Doug take a look at the third camera in Sony’s a7 series. While offering a sensor with only 12MP, the a7s is getting a lot...

Panasonic Lumix GH4

The long-awaited latest Lumix "G" flagship camera breaks new ground: It can shoot 4K video and save it directly to an SD card. So this week we invited video guru Dave Dugdale to join Doug and Frederick and give us his two cents.
