Firmware Friday: Sony QX100, QX10 get improved operation; Nikon updates FT1 mount adapter

    Friday's here, and it's firmware time! Before you head out for your weekend's photographic fun, you'll want to grab the latest updates if you're shooting with a Sony QX100 or QX10 lens-style camera, or you're among the first to pick up a Nikon V3 and want to use F-mount lenses. We'll start with the Sony firmware. The company's unusual QX100 and QX10 cameras, which piggyback on your smartphone's display, have been improved in two ways by firmware version 3.00. With the latest firmware installed, the Sony QX10 and QX100 both...

Sony A7 review: Is the best full-frame mirrorless camera also the most affordable?

    The cat's out of the bag: When we published our A7R review last December, it was pretty obvious that its sibling, the Sony A7, would also be well-received. The two full-frame, fully-featured mirrorless cameras share so much, after all. Both cameras' high placement in our 2013 Camera of the Year awards served to reconfirm it. With that being the case, we went into our review not so much trying to decide whether the A7 was a good camera, as trying to decide which was better: the Sony A7 or the Sony A7R? Predominantly, the...

Celebrity photographer David Bailey: The man behind the (Olympus) camera!

    In the Swinging Sixties, David Bailey was the most famous photographer in England. Young and cool, he partied with the Stones and the Beatles and was even known to hang out with gangsters like the notorious Kray Brothers. The main character in the 1966 Academy Award winning movie Blow-Up was in fact modeled after David Bailey. Others photographed Bailey as much as he photographed others. So recognizable was he that Olympus hired him to appear in a series of humorous ads for their film cameras. The conceit behind these short...

Nikon D4S - Shooter?s Report Part I: Coming to grips with a truly professional camera

    New cameras roll through our door here at IR almost every day, but it's rare to see the latest flagship professional model from one of the top companies. In fact, this is something that sometimes doesn't even happen a single time in a whole year, so we get pretty excited when one does arrive. The Nikon D4S may look physically similar to the highly regarded Nikon D4 released in February 2012, but its insides tell a somewhat different tale. And while comparing manufacturer specs can lead to plenty of conclusions about what's...

What The Duck #1324


We've come to the end of another week here at dpreview, and as our thoughts drift to weekend shooting opportunities, it's time to take things a little less seriously. Aaron Johnson's comic strip ‘What the Duck’ is just the thing, taking a gently satirical look through the lens of a photographically inclined waterfowl. You can find it published here (and in our newsletter) every week; we hope you enjoy it, and your weekend.

The Olympus Stylus SH-1 brings the manufacturer's well-regarded 5-axis image stabilization to a fixed lens compact for the first time.

A few thoughts about the Nikon D4
