The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 looks at first glance a bit like a high-end superzoom with its 24-200mm equivalent F2.8 lens. That's a fairly modest range by modern standards, but then the camera's 1" sensor is very large compared to conventional superzooms. Sony has put a lot of effort into the camera's video capabilities and tools, making it more than just a stills shooter, but are the sum of these parts enough to make the whole worth $1300?

Nikon's 1-System cameras have tended to slip under the radar of most enthusiasts. The company's new V3 mirrorless camera is Nikon's attempt to change that, with its impressive AF and burst shooting specs and more customizable controls. We were able to spend some time with the Nikon 1 V3 and have put together a quick overview of the camera for your reading pleasure.
The D610 is the exact same as the D600 but with a new shutter mechanism that boosts continuous shooting and adds a 'Quiet Continuous' mode. The only other upgrade is an improved auto white balance system. Although the D610 lacks some of the frills, like built-in Wi-Fi, GPS or an articulated LCD, it's a lot of camera for the money. Do the slight updates still make the D610 a compelling option in a growing full-frame market? Find out in our review
Nikon's latest flagship body, the D4s, gets an updated 16 megapixel full-frame sensor, Expeed 4-level processing, 1080/60p video recording and can now autofocus at up to 11fps. Beyond that it boasts a laundry list of small (but potentially meaningful) improvements over its predecessor. After spending some brief time with the camera, we've prepared some first impressions of the pro-level body. For a detailed analysis of what's new in Nikon's top-of-the-line, take a look at our first impressions review.
Two products that have been getting a lot of attention lately are the Sony a7 and a7R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Last month we took an in-depth look at the Alpha 7, and were mostly pleased with how it turned out. Now it's time to take a look at its big brother, the Alpha 7R, which offers a 36 megapixel sensor with no low-pass filter and a more conventional autofocus system. Is the a7R worth the price premium over the a7? Find out in our review
By putting a 24 megapixel full-frame sensor into a body nearly the same size as the Olympus E-M1, the Alpha 7 is arguably the most ambitious camera Sony has ever made. Never before has there been a full-frame camera this small - and one that supports nearly every 35mm lens format ever made, as well as Sony's own E-mount lenses. Does Sony get enough things right with the Alpha 7 to compete with more conventional full-frame cameras such as the Canon 6D and Nikon D610? Read our full review to find out
Sony has announced firmware upgrades that enhance the features of its QX-series 'lens-style' cameras, which clip on to the front of your smartphone. The update adds Full HD video recording and an expanded ISO range for both the QX10 and QX100, while the latter also receives a shutter priority mode. Sony's latest PlayMemories Mobile app has more seamless photo browsing and dramatically improved performance on iOS devices. Click through for more.
