Sony’s original RX100 was one of those bits of camera gear that just nailed it on the first try. The idea is simple: Cram a quasi-professional set of features and good-quality glass into a camera you can fit in your pocket.

Now is an especially interesting time in the compact camera space. How can manufacturers win the hearts and minds of photographers when the capabilities of smartphone cameras keep getting better? Photos taken by smartphones are landing on the covers of major magazines and are being blown up to fit massive billboards around the world. Cinematographers...
Today’s go-anywhere action cameras can capture amazing footage, no matter the conditions
Action cameras, the ubiquitous go-anywhere, attach-to-anything, record-everything video cameras, didn’t originally try to claim image resolution or fidelity as a key selling point. When GoPro, the company that really launched this market segment and then became the de facto leader in the field, created its first cameras, survivability was the key...
Sony unveiled the latest member of the RX-family of cameras, the RX100 VI at a private media event, which provided me the opportunity to test this “premium” compact camera in a variety of settings.

Informative (and entertaining) reviews of photo and video gear from the last year
