Nikon D7100 vs. Canon 70D

When the Canon EOS 70D was announced, it wasn't just as a replacement for the aging 60D, it was also as a direct response to Nikon's D7100. Both cameras use APS-C sensors and are aimed squarely at enthusiasts with better build quality and more features than entry-level models. Let's take a look at how the two cameras stack up against each other.  Read More

The Weye Feye can give many DSLRs a Wi-Fi boost, enabling remote shooting and sharing via ...

As more Wi-Fi-enabled cameras become available, it's easy to think yours is out of date if it doesn't have this ability. But the Weye Feye is a new device which aims to bring older DSLRs into the wireless age. Generating its own Wi-Fi network, the device can be accessed by Android and iOS devices for remote shooting, complete with manual controls and Live View.  Read More

The Lomography Petzval works with Canon EF and Nikon F mount cameras

Lomography is looking to make old new again with the reinvention of a 19th century lens known as the Petzval. This lens creates an instantly recognizable image style famous for its sharpness, color saturation, and swirly Bokeh effect in the background of the shot. It also has an incredibly narrow depth of field, which creates a very distinct look, especially for portraits.  Read More

The Capture Camera Clip v2 allows you to clamp your DSLR camera onto any belt buckle or ba...

The DSLR remains the camera of choice for people who are serious about photography, but lugging one about can still pose a challenge. Belt clip-on accessories like Peter Dering's Capture Camera Clip offer an ergonomic, ready-access alternative to the standard strap or bag. Looking to improve on the original, Dering is now launching a slimmed-down redesign that adds a GoPro mount to the equation.  Read More

The Canon EOS 70D features Wi-Fi capabilities and a new Dual Pixel CMOS AF system

DSLRs can shoot amazing quality video. But their autofocus is primarily designed for shooting stills and can result in stuttering movie footage, which is why most filmmakers don't use it. However, Canon thinks this could change with the launch of the EOS 70D. The new AF system in the Wi-Fi-toting 20.2-megapixel DSLR is said to offer much faster focusing during Live View, to the point that it can shoot almost camcorder-rivaling video.  Read More

When it comes to outlandish color schemes for digital SLR cameras, Pentax surely takes the crown. With the launch of its K-50 mid-range DSLR, Japan's photography giant is putting the choice of camera body color firmly in the hands of its customers. There are 20 body colors to choose from and six grip colors, with buyers being able to select from up to 120 combinations. The new 16 megapixel camera includes a broad sensitivity range, an 11 point tracking autofocus system, and an optical viewfinder with 100 percent field of view. It's joined by the similar, but cheaper, K-500 entry-level DSLR.  Read More

The Canon EOS 100D (Rebel SL1) is the world's smallest APS-C DSLR

Canon has revealed two new DSLRs – the EOS 100D and the EOS 700D (or Rebel SL1 and Rebel T5i depending on where you are in the world). Billed as the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR camera, the 100D still manages to pack in an 18 megapixel APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm) sensor and a touchscreen on the rear. The 700D is a more advanced, and traditionally-sized, entry-level model which can shoot at 5 fps, and has a wide 9-point all cross type AF system and touchscreen LCD.  Read More

The Nikon D7100 has a specially designed DX-format 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor

Nikon has revealed a new enthusiast-level flagship DX-format camera, the 24.1-megapixel Nikon D7100. The much-awaited update to the aging D7000 has a professional-level 51-point AF system, and continuous full resolution shooting at 6 fps. Notably, the camera also does away with the optical low pass filter – meaning it should be able to capture sharper detail than cameras with a similar resolution.  Read More

The SteadyWheel is a circular stabilizing rig for video cameras

As can be seen by the increasing number of stabilizing rigs available for DSLRs and small camcorders, people don’t like shaky hand-held video. Most of those rigs are inspired by the Steadicam Smoothee, utilizing a counter-weighted arm that extends below the gimbal-mounted camera. It’s an effective set-up, but one that’s also kind of fiddly. Fabricator and machinist Robert Stone has created something much more simple, in the form of the SteadyWheel.  Read More

The Nikon D600 is a 24.3-megapixel full-frame DSLR

The Nikon D600 was the first full frame DSLR aimed squarely at the enthusiast market, though it was admittedly quickly followed by the Canon 6D. It packs a large sensor into a compact body and comes in at a considerably cheaper price than previous full frame cameras. But is the D600 the right first step into the full frame world for current crop sensor shooters? I recently had the opportunity to spend a bit of quality time with one to find out.  Read More
