Fujifilm X-T1 images added to studio test scene

We just added studio test scene images to our First Impressions Review of the Fujifilm X-T1. The X-T1 takes many familiar elements we've seen before in X-Series cameras but incorporates them in more DSLR-like shape and with even more external control. We also got a version of Adobe Camera Raw that supports the camera and have added it to our test scene comparison tool.

Nokia's 808 and 1020 compared in our studio test scene

Nokia's 'Pureview' technology is still making headlines along with the announcement of the manufacturer's first 'phablet', the Lumia 1520. We felt the timing was perfect for taking a closer look at Pureview by testing the original Nokia 808 in our newly revamped studio test scene, and putting it up against this year's version of the tech found in the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020. See how the two compare on connect.dpreview.com.

Studio Test Scene launched - with 23 cameras (and counting)

After many, many months of design and testing we are happy to announce the official unveiling of our studio test scene. The new scene was designed to address certain drawbacks with the previous test scene, as well as providing the opportunity to show more real-world relevant information about how cameras behave. We've increased the number of cameras supported to 23 and we'll be continuing to add models (old and new) in the coming weeks.
