Nikon D810 review

By 28 July 2014

Landmark cameras come along every once in a while. In 2012 it was the super-high-resolution Nikon D800 that astounded us. We couldn't quite believe how much this 36.3-megapixel full-frame beast defied our initially doubtful expectations. Two years on... >>

Porsche 911 Targa 4 review: A modernised blast from the past

By 23 July 2014

Nvidia Shield Tablet could be Android games console we actually want and here's why

By 22 July 2014

Nvidia is open and honest about why it never brought the Nvidia Shield Android gaming device to the UK or, indeed, anywhere else outside of the US and Canada; it just wasn't good enough. Or, at least, by the time it became good enough something else was... >>
