Sony RX100 V
We’ve been working with the new Sony RX100 V for weeks now, and we’re quite impressed with it.

It shoots 24 fps, 150... Read more

Hands-On Review: Sony RX10 III

The Sony RX10 III is, as the name denotes, the third in the line of RX cameras

Forbes Island, the incorrectly-named, cramped and awkwardly bobbing manmade structure in San Francisco’s harbor would seem like an odd place to test the new Sony RX10 III. The structure, built in the 1980’s, resembles an island (complete with lighthouse) but is, in fact, a barge of sorts, powered by a tugboat-strong engine and featuring a below-deck... Read more

Hands On With The New Fujifilm X-Pro2

A first look at two eagerly anticipated cameras

The release of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 should come as no surprise as Fujifilm named the first camera in the X-Pro series THE X-Pro1, practically guaranteeing a sequel. The X-Pro1 was announced in 2012 and featured an APS-C sensor, the largest size found in compact digital cameras at that time. Much larger than MicroFourThirds sensors, against which the...

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

This capable, palm-sized camera brings high-quality images at a lower-end price point

The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is the latest camera from Olympus, and while the name designates it as an update to the OM-D E-M10, in actuality, the camera is more of a reboot. The original E-M10 was a scaled-back E-M5, and while the E-M10 Mark II is mostly a scaled-back E-M5 Mark II, there are some features in the new E-M10 Mark II that didn’t make it to... Read more

Ben Moon Made The Switch

Adventurous lifestyle photographer Ben Moon calls the Sony a7R II his “everything camera.”

Ben Moon has crossover appeal. He’s not just an outdoor adventure photographer with a portfolio full of tremendous climbing and surfing photos—though he is most definitely that. He’s also a skilled portraitist with a love of music and a number of prominent performers as clients and even several album covers under his belt. And he’s a filmmaker... Read more

Don Smith Made The Switch

A sports shooter turned landscape photographer, Don Smith’s switch to Sony mirrorless cameras was, like his entire career, all about the light.

Don Smith has always been an early adopter of the best new technologies. In 2002, as a working sports photographer, he invested in the first widely available, reasonably affordable DSLR—the Canon EOS D30. In recent years, having traded sports for landscapes, Smith made another big switch—from a bulky DSLR to the next big thing: the Sony A7 line... Read more

Chris Burkard Made The Switch

This world-traveling photographer chose Sony because he was looking for something “pocketable but powerful.”

For nature and travel photographer Chris Burkard, surfing and climbing and kayaking are more than just the subjects he photographs. They’re integral to the life he lives. In fact, he says, it’s by incorporating the outdoors into his daily life he’s able to make photographs from the perspective of a participant rather than an outsider. His passion... Read more

Gabe Rogel Made The Switch

Adventure sports photographer Gabe Rogel loves his Sony mirrorless cameras because they’re light, they’re fast, and they shoot beautiful video.

Adventure sports photographer Gabe Rogel grew up loving mountain climbing and snow skiing. While studying photography in college, he sold a few photos and that led to a realization: “This is what I want to do.” He did it, too. And now he’s doing it with Sony mirrorless cameras. Finding equipment that’s both compact and light is important to... Read more

Colby Brown Made The Switch

The world traveler switched to Sony’s a7 line of mirrorless cameras because they were so much smaller. He’s stayed with them because they are so much better.

Colby Brown might best be described as a humanitarian photographer. He travels the world, camera in hand, looking to help those who are most in need. Along the way he’s built a beautiful portfolio of dramatic landscape and travel photos, but it’s making a difference with his camera that motivates him. Trained as a first responder, Brown...
