Gizmag compares the Panasonic FZ1000 and the Sony RX10

Bridge cameras, with their fixed super-zoom lenses, have traditionally offered users a great focal range, but not necessarily the image quality to match. That changed with the Sony RX10, which used a large one-inch-type sensor to boost photographic quality. But now there's a new challenger on the block, the Panasonic FZ1000, which offers much of what makes the RX10 great, and a bit more too. Here Gizmag looks at how the two cameras compare.  Read More

Canon has launched a photo-centric cloud vault named irista

Back in 2012, Canon embarked on a project which aimed to solve the issue of user photos being scattered across numerous media cards, mobile devices and computer-based storage. The free beta trial of its Project1709 online storage and photo management platform was launched at Photokina in September of that year, and developers have been fine-tuning the service ever since. Now Canon believes it's ready for prime time, and has removed the beta tag for a full public version called irista. The photo-centric cloud vault offers new sign-ups a generous helping of free storage, includes some nifty social networks integration tools and is claimed to make organizing and finding digital memories a snap.  Read More
