Olympus E-PL7 Shooter?s Report Part I: Exploring the benefits of a few significant upgrades

    It seems from some of our reader comments that the Olympus E-PL7 is not quite understood for what it is. Perhaps it's the change in style from its predecessor, bringing it closer in appearance to the flagship E-P5's look than the E-PL5, a line that has remained fairly consistent over the past few generations in terms of external design. Or maybe it's the marketing hype of the "selfie" screen, which we promoted in our initial coverage but didn't quite resonate with the enthusiast crowd. Whatever the case may be, after spending my...

Nikon V3 review: Is this super-speedy flagship the best argument yet for Nikon?s 1-system?

    Ever since the Nikon 1-series launched back in late 2011 with the V1 and J1, it has divided opinions. 1-series cameras are smaller than most rivals, and they offer some truly impressive performance, but while they've done quite well with consumer photographers in some markets, enthusiasts have been a tougher sell for Nikon. With the Nikon V3, the company hopes to persuade these more experienced photographers to take another look. This new flagship for the 1-series line couples the best of its forebears with some of the best...

The Art of Capturing Aurora: An interview with photographer Jeremy Gray

When the sun unleashes a certain type of solar flare out into the surrounding cosmos in our general direction, the result is often an impacting plasma cloud bombarding our magnetosphere. OK - so that's a mouthful, but the result to us down here on Earth is generally twofold, as havoc can be wreaked on our power grids and electrical systems, while incredibly beautiful skies often result from the aurora that are created from the powerful collisions. These breathtaking phenomena generally occur at or near the poles due to their high magnetic charge, and can generally be seen as far as ~20°...

Canon G7 X First Shots: the Sony RX100-series rival hits our test lab

    The Canon G7 X, the "Big C's" answer to the powerful and popular Sony RX100-series of premium, large-sensor compact cameras, was recently introduced at this year's Photokina trade show. Now, our review sample unit has arrived and is already undergoing rigorous testing in our laboratory.  With a large, 20.2MP 1-inch type sensor coupled with and a fast f/1.8-2.8 aperture and a versatile 24-100mm-equivalent focal length range, all packed into a sleek, solid body, the G7 X is undoubtedly going to give the Sony RX100 III -- it's...

Opinion: Why buy a Panasonic LX100 when you could buy a GX7?

What's so special about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100? It uses the same sensor as the GX7 but is at a distinct disadvantage not being part of an interchangeable lens system. So why would anyone choose the Lumix LX100 with its expensive body over the flexibility of the only-slightly-bigger Lumix DMC-GX7? Has Panasonic shot itself in the foot? Click through to read more
