Pentax K-S1: Built-in LED light displays distract from some interesting tech (hands-on)

By 18 September 2014

Pentax isn't one for the norm. In addition to its multi-colour DSLR cameras, the company was also showing off its latest K-S1 DSLR at Photokina - a camera that has coloured light indicator lamps said to guide operations. We thought the fade-in, fade-out... >>

Sony Alpha A7S review

By 12 September 2014

In 2013 the Sony Alpha A7 convinced our team and a panel of tech-savvy judges that it was system camera of the year. Not because it had the most lenses available, was the fastest, nor because there weren't other great new cameras coming out, but because... >>

Hands-on: Canon PowerShot SX60 HS superzoom review: Massive zoom is great, but not always super

By 17 September 2014

There was a time when superzooms were content with focal lengths maxing out in the triple figure department. No so the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS, an all-in-one complete with a 65x zoom lens (21-1365mm equivalent) that encompasses a versatile range. Wide-angle,... >>

Olympus OM-D E-M1 silver adds updated firmware in addition to spangly exterior (hands-on)

By 17 September 2014

Olympus held off from releasing any major products at Photokina 2014, but did unveil the OM-D E-M1 in a rather lovely silver finish. The E-M1 is exactly what it sounds like: a silver-colour version of the original black model, but one that also delivers... >>

Hands-on: Canon EOS 7D Mark II review: Predictable, but brilliant

By 17 September 2014

It's taken five years for the EOS 7D Mark II to supersede its original top-spec Canon APS-C model - and in current product cycles that feels like a long stretch of time. Many 7D users have been hungry for the update, so has the Mark II been worth the... >>

Hands-on: Fujifilm X30 review: Bigger, bolder, better - but Panasonic LX100 brings the pressure

By 17 September 2014

The arrival of the Fujifilm X30 will see the high-end compact market hot up once more as the year comes to a close. It's a busying sector around this price point, with the just-announced (and pricier) Panasonic Lumix LX100 nestling in as a prime competitor.... >>

Hands-on: Leica M Edition 60 is the digital rangefinder camera with no LCD screen. No, really

By 16 September 2014

Want all the benefits of digital with all the "is it, isn't it?" fun of film? If you have a healthy bank account and a penchant for camera oddities then the Leica M Edition 60 may be just right for you then. Because this gorgeous slice of German engineering,... >>

Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition: Matte finish somehow looks flat and plasticky (hands-on)

By 16 September 2014

When we first heard about the Fujifilm X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition we were enthusiastic. After all, the X-T1 was one of our favourite cameras of the year, so when a manufacturer starts talking about a "luxury multilayer coating" what's not to like? Indeed,... >>
