Fujifilm X100S Black: Alternative to classic silver finish available this month

By

Hard though it was to avoid a title making a play on AC/DC's Back In Black album title, we put our sensible hats on. Because that's what the Fujifilm X100S Black deserves. This top-end, fixed lens compact camera is just about as good as they come. But... >>

Fujifilm XQ1 review

By

When we first saw the Fujifilm XQ1 we were rather excited. This dinky, pocketable compact promised a good slice of the greatness that its big brother X20 model offers, albeit in a smaller package that ought to bring a yet wider appeal. One look at the... >>

Hands-on: Olympus Stylus 1 review

By

Well, well, well, if it isn't a mini Olympus OM-D. Only it's not. The Olympus Stylus 1 is like a head-on collision between the compact system camera and the Japanese company's high-end XZ-2 compact camera. With a 28-300mm f/2.8 lens thrown in the mix... >>

This week it's all about computing. Well, largely about computing. We've been treated to the second generation of Microsoft laptop-meets-tablet devices in the shape of the Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2, the latter a head-to-head dead ringer against the... >>
