With today’s development announcement at Photokina of the ZX1, Zeiss has officially entered the (getting to be very crowded) full-frame mirrorless camera market segment. As mentioned, the full-frame mirrorless camera is becoming increasingly crowded all of a sudden. Sony is still the leader, but with Nikon and Canon joining the fray that will change, even more so now with Sigma and Panasonic recently announcing their intentions to release full-frame mirrorless bodies. So why should we be excited about Zeiss’s announcement of the ZX1? The Glass… The interplay between the lens and sensor ensures first-class picture quality with that typical ZEISS…

Let’s face it, at one time, GoPro was the undisputed king of the action cam segment. Everywhere you looked, there were adrenaline junkies with a GoPro attached to just about anything they could stick them on. But then, as the marketplace became more crowded with cheaper alternatives with similar features, GoPro seemed to lose some of its “Mojo” and dare we say it, even start to stumble. However, with last year’s release of the Hero6, GoPro seemed to gain a little momentum back and now with the announcement of not one, but three versions of the Hero7, GoPro might be…

The just announced Fujifilm GFX 50R is a rangefinder-style medium format, mirrorless digital camera that follows in the footsteps of the GFX 50S released back in 2016. The GFX 50R features the same 51.4MP G Format CMOS image sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine as its bigger brother, but somehow Fujifilm has been able to fit it into a body that is more similar in size to the newly announced X-T3 camera than the GFX 50S. By eliminating the deeper grip, top mounted LCD screen and hump on the back of the 50S, Fujifilm has been able to reduce the overall…

In a month that could be called, “a full-frame mirrorless revolution”, Panasonic appears to be coming out swinging by announcing not one, but two new full-frame mirrorless cameras that are the lead cameras in their new Lumix S-Series. Please keep in mind that the full specs for either camera hasn’t been released as of yet, but here is what we know so far… Panasonic Lumix S1 & S1R The Panasonic S1R and S1 bodies are part of a new line-up of full-frame mirrorless cameras made possible through the new L-Mount alliance which includes manufacturers Panasonic, Leica and Sigma that was announced at…

The new Profoto B10 battery-powered strobe is relatively tiny compared to other similar portable lighting systems. How tiny you ask? Well, according to Profoto, it’s only slightly larger than a medium sized zoom lens, which means you’ll be easily able to throw it into your kit bag and take just about anywhere. Profoto B10 250 AirTTL Weighing in at only 1.5 kg (that includes the battery and stand adapter), the B10 opens up a world of possibilities for location shooting. The B10 can be mounted on a camera tripod as easily as it would on a light stand, meaning you…

After months of rumours, the Nikon Z Series, consisting of two full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Z6 and Z7, a handful of lenses and a lens adapter that will allow you to continue using your existing Nikon glass has finally been announced. Nikon Z Series Cameras Appearance wise, you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two camera bodies and as you can see below, apart from the Z 7 and Z 6 logos on the bottom front left of the cameras, there really isn’t a difference. On the outside, both cameras feature a nice deep hand grip and…

With it’s long and storied history, Leica is the camera brand that street photographers around the world have coveted the most due to their minimalist beauty and high-quality builds. And we are happy to say that the new Leica M10-P proudly continues that tradition. Leica M10-P As with most Leica cameras, the thing that makes M10-P appealing to street (and other) photographers is its discreet size and minimal design. Adding to the minimalist design is the fact that Leica made the decision to remove their classic red-dot logo from the camera, a move that might cause some division with hardcore…
