Rank #2: Panasonic Lumix G7
The Panasonic Lumix G7 replaces the two-year-old G6. It’s quite similar to the GX7, positioned between the GF7 and top-of-the-line GH4. Since it uses the same sensor (ie, same image quality) as the GX7, GM5 and GF7, why would you opt for this new model instead? At US$800 with a good 14-24mm kit zoom, it’s …
Rank #6: Fuji X-100T
Rank #9: Nikon D3300
What's new in the entry-level DSLR market? The D3300 is Nikon's latest candidate in this niche. But the real question for most buyers isn't whether it's the best DSLR at this level, but whether one might be better off with a comparable mirrorless camera.
Rank #11: Leica Q
The Leica Q is the first of what could become an entirely new product line for the German manufacturer. It includes a non-interchangeable 28mm f/1.7 Summilux autofocus (!) lens coupled with a gorgeous full-frame sensor. At US$4,250, the Leica Q is hardly a camera for everyone, but that’s less than half what you’d spend for a digital Leica M …
Rank #12: Apple 27″ iMac Retina 5K
After a year of anticipation, Apple have finally announced its 27” iMac with Retina 5K Display. It took less than an hour for both Frederick and Doug to jump on in with both feet and place their orders. Now that the wrapping paper has faded, and they’ve had a few weeks of living with their new …
Rank #13: Fuji X-30
The Fujifilm X30 is a replacement for the X20. The new camera has an electronic viewfinder instead of a rangefinder and includes a lot of new features. It’s relatively inexpensive at $600 including the non-interchangeable 4x zoom lens, but it’s still too large for a pocket.
Rank #14: Panasonic Lumix FZ1000
Panasonic has just released the latest in their eight-year series of “bridge cameras” — the Lumix FZ1000. It’s as easy to use as a point-and-shoot but the size of a small DSLR because of its 16x zoom. Who’s this camera for, asks Frederick? For almost anyone, answers Doug. The image quality is good and the …
Rank #15: Fuji X-T1
Fujifilm cameras produce excellent quality images and Fuji has many fans, including Doug. To their great in-camera emulations of classic film stocks, Fujifilm has added the claim that their flagship X-T1 is the fastest autofocusing camera on the market. But does the X-T1 live up to the hype?
Rank #16: The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K – All About the Gear
In this interview I sit down with Bob Caniglia from Black Magic Deisgn to discuss their latest cameral release — the Pocket Cinema 4K
The post The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K – All About the Gear appeared first on This Week in Photo.
Rank #17: Lytro Illum
A year ago we reviewed the original Lytro camera. Doug didn’t think Lytro was really in the camera business, but rather into technology licensing. But that camera’s successor, the Illum, is much more like what we think of as a camera, albeit with radically new light-field technology.
Rank #18: Sony a7S II
The Sony a7S II is the second high-ISO “S” model and the sixth overall in the company’s a7 line of full-frame mirrorless cameras. It shares the improved body with the other “mark II” models (better weather resistance, in-body image stabilization, enhanced controls and a new electronic viewfinder) and uses the same 12MP sensor as the …
