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

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.... >>

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review

By 17 September 2014

You wait a year for a new iPhone and then two come along at once. A surprise to many, Apple released not only the iPhone 6 but also the iPhone 6 Plus, a monster of a phone that comes with a 5.5-inch display, higher screen resolution, a larger battery,... >>

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,... >>
