The Pentax O-FC1 FluCard offers quite a bit more than just Wi-Fi image sharing and transfers, but not quite as much as some wired tethering applications. This makes it a mixed bag as a general camera tool, but one that has been entirely out of reach for Pentax for quite some time.. In light of this, is it worth the $99 price tag?

Fujifilm's idea of a mid-range camera is a remarkably photographer-friendly affair, and the X-E2 is the latest example of that. It's superficially similar to its predecessor, the X-E1, but adds the X-Trans CMOS II sensor that includes on-chip phase detection elements to allow continuous autofocus. It also has a nicer rear screen and built-in Wi-Fi, along with a host of small operational and feature tweaks. Is the X-E2 a photographic tool that lives up to the promise of its classic looks and control layout? Find out in our full review
Born from the brief union between Google and Motorola, the Moto X bears several unique features worthy of both names, including instant activation when removed from a pocket and constant attention to voice commands. Two shakes of the handset brings up the Moto X's simplified camera interface, which is where we come in. How does the Moto X measure up? Read our Motorola Moto X review to find out
If you're looking for a Wi-Fi card that's simple to setup and blasts images off into cyberspace in a matter of seconds while you take advantage of your camera's far superior image quality (compared to a phone), you can't go wrong with the Eye-Fi Mobi. How does the Mobi stack up against the pricier Eye-Fi Pro X2 card? Find out in our review
GoPro's latest fleet of little action bricks are fortified with several advanced features that cannot be found elsewhere in the market. The GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition ($399.99) is the newest flagship model, replacing the GoPro Hero 3 by adding some key upgrades. Having owned the first HD Hero and Hero2, our writer Mike Perlman wanted to know if the Black Edition was worth the extra cash. Read our review
The Miggo straps and grips bring a lot of innovation to the way we tote and transport our beloved investments. Their versatile multi-use designs combine a high quality camera wrap, a method of securing the camera to your person and lens cap pocket all in one. Are the days of traditional camera toting coming to an end? 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
We've just posted our full review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1. It underscores the 'Micro' in Micro Four Thirds as the smallest model in that class, with a 16MP Four Thirds sensor and a collapsible 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens. It offers many features that its bigger Lumix GX7 sibling does, starting with the sensor, but in a much smaller package. See how it measures up. Read our full review
Lauded as a compact semi-professional model and constructed of cross-woven carbon fiber, the new 190 ($409.88 body only) would be an eye-catching addition to any camera kit. Manfrotto made several updates to the new model, but do they place it far enough beyond the old 190, which cost $259.95, to justify the price hike? Find out in our review
Having spent a little more time with a full production unit, we've updated our Nikon Df coverage with images from our studio test scene and some more handling impressions. Nikon's thoroughly retro full-frame Df uses the same 16MP chip first seen in the D4, and provides an unprecedented level of support for legacy lenses. The new scene shows its performance in both daylight and low light, with downloadable image files. As always, you can compare the Df to the increasing number of cameras in our test scene.
We've updated our first impressions review of the Sony Alpha 7 with our studio test scene showing image quality for both JPEG and Raw files, making it easier to see the differences between it and its sister model, the Alpha 7R. The new scene also offers downloadable Raw samples of both daylight and low light scenes. As always, you can compare the A7 to the increasing number of cameras in our test scene.
We've just posted our full review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7. With a 16 megapixel Four Thirds sensor, in-body image stabilization, and built-in articulated EVF, the GX7 boasts a lot of refinements to tempt enthusiasts away from similar Olympus and Sony offerings. Panasonic engineers have thrown just about everything they've got into this mid-range mirrorless camera, will it find a loyal audience the way its GF1 predecessor did?

We've just completed our review of Canon's EOS 70D. With its Dual Pixel AF system and built-in Wi-Fi, it's an unusually radical departure for a series that's tended to progress fairly conservatively between generations. So how well does it work? Are these high-tech additions enough to fend off the competition from Nikon's very capable D7100 or Olympus's rather impressive E-M1? Read our review to find out.
We have added DxOMark's Mobile Report to our camera review of the Nokia Lumia 1020. The report includes DxO Lab's usual industry-standard scientific measurements and analyzes 14 aspects of mobile imaging including detailed image quality assessment, flash performance, autofocus reliability and more to calculate a final score.

We've just posted our full review of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II. Following on the success of the RX100 is no easy feat, but just the same the RX100 II does so with a new BSI CMOS sensor. Also new to this model is an accessory port/hotshoe, Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, and a tiltable display. Did Sony make a good camera even better? Click through to read our full analysis.
The Nikon 1 System has been around for a couple of years now, but the emergence of the AW1 signals a radical departure from what has been the norm. Functionally very similar to the 14MP J3 which Nikon announced earlier this year, the AW1 is waterproof to 15m (49ft), shockproof from 2m (6.6 ft), and freezeproof. It's being announced alongside two equally rugged lenses, and a range of colorful silicone skins for underwater and wet weather use. We had the opportunity to use the new camera recently, and we've put together a first impressions review covering its design, operation and key features. Click through for a link.
With a smart look and clean design, the Vanguard Up-Rise 33 stands out from the pack. Capable of holding a small to medium DSLR, the Up-Rise 33 also expands to allow room for a 13-inch notebook computer, or contracts if you have less to carry. It has served as a good commuter companion for one of our reviewers for about eight months. Read how it performed in his review.
We've had more time to shoot with the Olympus E-M1 and have extended our coverage of its AF performance. In addition to incorporating real-world Continuous Autofocus examples and commentary, we've also spent more time shooting with it alongside an E-5, to see exactly how the two compare, and amended our impressions accordingly.
We've just posted our long-awaited review of the Fujifilm X100S - Fujifilm's flagship fixed-lens compact. The 16MP X100S offers a fixed 35mm equivalent F2 lens, and builds on the appeal of the popular but quirky X100 by adding improved automatic and manual focus, an overhauled interface and a 16MP X-Trans sensor. Do the on-paper refinements add up to better real-world performance? Click through for a link to the full review, and a note from the editor.
Samsung's successor to the popular Galaxy S3 has a lot to live up to, especially given the S3's impressive performance as a camera.
