Firmware Friday: Olympus E-M1 update lands ahead of schedule, Leica updates S-system cameras

    The last few weeks or so might have been a bit manic, thanks to the biennial Photokina tradeshow that's been underway in Germany, but that doesn't mean things have been quiet on the firmware front. The very opposite, in fact! A few days ago, we told you about a new firmware update for the Olympus E-M1 digital SLR, currently under development and promised for delivery from September 24th. Well, as it turns out that firmware has arrived already, so if you're an E-M1 shooter, it's time to start updating. New features on offer...

Canon?s venerable fast-shooting APS-C gets a major upgrade: We compare the 7D vs. 7D Mark II

    When Canon introduced the 7D Mark II early Monday morning it quickly shot to the top of our charts in traffic. Given it's been 5 years since the release of the original 7D (a veritable eternity in the digital photography space), we expected it to handily surpass its older brother in every way. But we didn't expect the new camera to give Canon's full-frame DSLR lineup a run for its money. Yes, dynamic range and low-light suffer from the smaller sensor, but this camera eats the more expensive 5D Mark III (5D Mark III vs. 7D Mark II...

Considering an iPhone 6 Plus? This is the most beautiful camera(phone) review we?ve ever seen.

    The high-end cameraphone market is thriving, with plenty of strong options, from the Nokia Lumia 1020, to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Heck, Panasonic just announced development of their CM1, featuring a monstrous 1" image sensor with 6 times the area of recent iPhone sensors. It's not clear how the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will fare against such stiff competition, but a recent review suggests the battle will be fierce. Photographer and videographer Austin Mann recently took off to Iceland with an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6...

Firmware updates will bring 4K photo mode to Panasonic GH4, FZ1000

    If you're the owner of a Panasonic GH4 compact system camera or the large-sensor, long-zoom Panasonic FZ1000, we have good news for you. Both cameras have offered 4K video capture since launch, something that can prove handy not just for shooting movies, but also if you want to catch a high-quality still image but are faced with an unpredictable subject that's too much of a test for your reflexes. With each 4K video frame having a resolution around 8.3 megapixels, simply shooting a video and then extracting the best frame...

DxOMark Mobile report: Sony Xperia Z3 ties for first

The Sony Xperia Z3 is Sony's latest waterproof flagship smartphone, picking up where the Z2 left off. Like that phone it's 4K capable and also offers an atypically-large 1/2.3"-type sensor. Just like the Z2, that's a 20.7MP Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor nestling behind a 27mm equivalent F2.0 lens. All this has encouraged Sony to offer ISO 12,800, which it says is the highest of any smartphone. Learn more about how it performs

Hands-on with Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100

When Panasonic came to see us recently in our Seattle offices we were expecting the much-rumored LX8. That didn't happen, but what we saw was quite a surprise. The LX100 is one of Panasonic's most ambitious cameras yet, marrying a Four Thirds sensor with a 24-75mm (equivalent) F1.7-2.8 lens, in a body not much bigger than that of the LX7. Full manual control, a built-in EVF and 4K video round-out the specification sheet nicely. Click through for a hands-on tour of the new camera.

Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents

One swallow does not a summer make, said Aristotle, suggesting the dangers of looking for trends based on single examples. Even with this in mind, I'm pleased to see two manufacturers introduce 70-200mm equivalent zooms for APS-C cameras at this year's Photokina. First Fujifilm introduced its 50-140mm F2.8 R, and then Samsung followed suit with its 50-150mm F2.8 S. I think these lenses make more sense than actual 70-200mms; let me explain why...

Vancouver, Canada-based photographer Nick Didlick has recently posted two short movies showcasing the video and time-lapse capabilities of the Nikon 1 V1 camera. Each is well worth a look, both for what Didlick has captured and for the ethereal effect he has given each video in post-production.

A few thoughts about the Nikon D4

Since picking up a Nikon D4 in March it has been my go-to camera for low light and high speed photography, supplementing a D800E that's now used for just about everything else. Here are a few observations about D4 image quality, autofocus, wireless networking and more.
