The Samsung NX1 ships next week! Have you reserved your place in line?

    We can hardly control our excitement -- one of the most eagerly-anticipated cameras of the year is finally about to arrive! Launched at the Photokina tradeshow last September, the Samsung NX1 mirrorless is the company's first truly pro-grade camera, and sports some pretty spectacular features. We're talking a solid weather-sealed magnesium-alloy body, a light-loving backside-illuminated APS-C image sensor with high 28.2-megapixel resolution, 205-point on-chip phase detection autofocus, astounding 15 frames-per-second burst...

Motrr Galileo motion platform finally gets the GoPro compatibility you?ve been waiting for

    Finally, it's here! When Motrr first launched its clever Galileo 360-degree motion platform for the iPhone and iPod Touch some two and a half years ago, we were even more intrigued by a glimpse of a GoPro action camera mounted on the platform. As of a year ago, plans for GoPro compatibility had been temporarily shelved due to connectivity issues. Those issues, it seems, have been resolved and the GoPro mount -- compatible with the Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 models -- is expected to begin shipping within two weeks. So what can...

Eye-Fi opens cloud service up to smartphone users

    Wi-Fi enabled flash card maker Eye-Fi packs some pretty impressive technology into the confines of the humble SD card, but its not just its tech that's feeling the squeeze these days. On the one side, with the demise of the compact camera in the face of camera-equipped smartphones, the average consumer has less need for a way to get their photos onto their phone. On the other, the spread of cameras with built-in Wi-Fi means there's less need for a Wi-Fi addon from those of us who still carry a dedicated camera. Clearly,...

Canon EOS 7D Mark II shooting experience added to first impressions review

Canon's successor to the EOS 7D was a long time coming, but the 7D Mark II appears to have all the makings of a DSLR worth the wait. Offering a 20.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, Dual Pixel AF with 65 phase-detect points and more robust weather-resistance, the 7D II is a formidable follow-up indeed. Our full review is well underway and we've just updated our first impressions with a detailed shooting experience. Read more

Sony announces Alpha 7 II full-frame mirrorless camera with 5-axis IS

Sony has announced its Alpha 7 II, which the company has managed to keep very close to its vest. The big story on this 24MP full-frame mirrorless is its 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization - the first that we've seen in a full-frame camera. Sony claims that this IS system can reduce shake by 4.5 stops using the CIPA standard. The Hybrid AF system has also been improved upon, offering 30% faster speeds and a 1.5X improvement in tracking. The a7 II also sports a larger grip, new front dial, and sensibly relocated shutter release. Read more

I Can Just Fix That in Photoshop

More on the Subject of Blinkies
