Hands-on: We shake the Pentax K-1 by its monitor, so you don’t have to

Pentax has a reputation for producing some of the hardiest DSLRs on the market, and with a magnesium alloy body and weather-sealing, the new K-1 is no exception. However, even knowing this we didn't envision that a few minutes into our hands-on with the full frame camera at the Photography Show 2016 that we'd be shaking it around by its rear monitor, but sometimes these things just happen.Read More

Sony gets ultra-sensitive with the 4K-shooting A7S II

After updating its line-up of full frame mirrorless cameras with the A7 II and then the A7R II, it was a matter of when, not if, Sony's low light specialist, the A7S, would receive an update. Announced today, the ultra-sensitive A7S II boasts full frame internal 4K movie recording without pixel binning, in-camera 5-axis image stabilization, and an extended ISO which reaches all the way up to 409,600.Read More

Review: Leica's quirky Q, the ultimate full-frame street shooter

Priced at a truly scary US$4,250, the Leica Q looks very limited on paper. It seems like a travesty to take a gorgeous full-frame sensor and saddle it with a single, fixed 28mm lens. But the combination allows for a very compact and light design, with crazy-fast autofocus and a beautiful high-definition electronic viewfinder to go with its near-silent shutter and sumptuous optics. Yes, it costs an arm and a leg, but the Leica Q is a stellar run-and-gun street photographer's axe that delivers tack-sharp, rich and detailed images.Read More

Canon's 5DS and 5DS R have 50-megapixel sensors

The rumors were true. Canon is going big in terms of resolution with its latest full frame DSLRs. The newly-announced Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R each boast 50.6-megapixel sensors, that's more than double the 5D Mark III and considerably bigger than previous megapixel monsters like the Nikon D810 or Sony A7R. This gives the new megapixel-heavy duo the highest resolution of any current 35-mm-format DSLR. Read More

Sony details α7 Series full-frame mirrorless cameras

Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras offer consumers DSLR-like performance in a much less bulky package, but prothusiasts looking for something bigger than an APS-C sensor may still have to lug around a larger and heavier camera. The playing field is changing though. Panasonic has managed to squeeze a Micro Four Thirds sensor into a body that's smaller than many compact cameras for its new GM1, and now Sony's upped the ante even further. The Alpha 7 and 7R are claimed to be the world's first 35 mm full-frame mirrorless cameras.Read More
