Sony cameras
It was just about a year ago that I reviewed the Sony RX10 Mark III for another publication. I was impressed then and even more impressed now. That’s because this update adds the a9 image processing to a compact body already chock full of Sony’s tech.

Hands-On With the Fujifilm GFX 50S

Fujifilm GFX 50S hands-on review
Of the dozens of cameras I’ve owned and the hundreds of cameras I’ve tested, there’s a special place in my heart for my first medium-format camera, a Mamiya 645.
