Ricoh?s award-winning K-50 DSLR kit is now even more attractive, adds Wi-Fi for under $500

    Last December, Ricoh's impressive Pentax K-50 digital SLR took top place in our annual Camera of the Year awards as 2013's Best Entry-Level DSLR. Based around the same sensor as the company's then-flagship Pentax K-5 II DSLR, the key to the K-50's success was a design that brought numerous enthusiast-grade features down to a consumer-friendly pricetag. At the time, the weather-sealed Pentax K-50 was priced at US$780 for a kit that included an 18-55mm zoom lens which was also weather-sealed. That was simply unheard-of...

Hands-on with the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro (and 1.4x TC): A pro quality lens without the ?pro? bulk

UPDATE: The full, in-depth Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 M.Zuiko Pro lens review is now complete over on SLRgear! Following up on their stellar 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens, the newest member of the "Zuiko Pro" family is the telephoto sibling to the 12-40mm: the 40-150mm f/2.8 M.Zuiko Pro. Technically, it was unveiled all the way back at the launch of the E-M1 as an "in-development" project, however the 40-150 f/2.8 was officially announced as a bona fide product last month just prior to Photokina. This telephoto zoom lens is the latest move in Olympus's drive to sway...

Fotodiox creates 'Tough E-Mount' for Sony E & FE-mount cameras

Sony's NEX and Alpha range of E and FE-mount cameras have a lot going for them, but some users have reported a 'wiggle' in the lensmount, especially when heavier lenses, or third-party optics via adapters are used. Fotodiox thinks it has the answer with its new 'Tough E-Mount' - literally a replacement lensmount for E and FE-mount cameras. With a single metal ring replacing the two (one metal, one plastic) originally attached to the camera, the Tough E-Mount should (according to the manufacturer) eliminate any movement between camera and lens. Click through for more details

Can You Really Buy a Quality $35 Arca-Compatible Ball Head?

In the beginning there was the legendary Arca Swiss B1 ballhead, the dovetail-plate clamp system that became an industry standard. Then came Really Right Stuff, Kirk Enterprises and others. These days, you can buy Arca-compatible tripod heads and quick release plates from countless vendors on websites such as Amazon and eBay, sometimes at ridiculously low prices. So I started to wonder: can you really buy a quality Arca-Swiss compatible tripod ballhead for just thirty-five dollars?....
