The Inmacus Wide Angle HD kit offers a good quality wide-angle lens, polarizer and macro filter in one package.
The Fujifilm X70 may look like a shrunken X100-series camera with lens specs lifted from a Ricoh GR II, but in practice it handles and shoots very differently than either of those cameras. This is due in no small part to a Fujifilm first: a touchscreen that also happens to tilt. Is the X70 the ultimate coat-pocketable APS-C compact? Read more
The Canon XC10 is a hybrid still/video camera which features a 12MP, 1"-type CMOS sensor, 24-240mm equivalent lens, 4K/UHD video capture at up to 305Mbps and a video-centric design with a fully articulating LCD.

The Sony a6300 is the company's latest mid-range mirrorless camera. It looks a lot like the a6000 but adds 4K video, better build quality, a higher-resolution viewfinder and a host of operational improvements. How does it fare against the immediate competition and how does it stand up to its little brother? Read our in-depth review
We've posted our review of Panasonic's Lumix DMC-ZS100 (TZ100 outside of North America), which is the first travel zoom to sport a 1"-type sensor.

The Leica Q’s melding of manual control with electronic assistance and combination of fixed-28mm F1.7 lens and 24MP full-frame sensor make for a responsive package capable of excellent photographs. But despite its $4250 asking price, we found a few other less likable characteristics over the course of our review. So is it worthy of that bright red dot? Find out in our full review. Read more
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a radical reworking of the first X-Series mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It may look essentially the same but just about every aspect of the camera has been refreshed, extended and enhanced. Read our full review to find out what these changes amount to.
A full-frame, ultra-wide angle macro lens from a very new brand provides a unique option for users of many different systems and lens mounts. Combining a 1:1 macro, wide angle of view and shift lens into a single body, the Venus LAOWA 15mm F4 is a lens with more than a few tricks up its sleeve. This article explores those abilities and provides some real world samples from both full-frame and APS-C cameras. Read more
At first glance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 looks like just another rangefinder-style mirrorless camera. But flip it around and you quickly notice it's unique tilting electronic viewfinder, one of several features that make this camera stand out from the crowd. We've put the GX8 through some rigorous testing. Read more
We took some quick test shots with the Aukey extreme wide angle smartphone lens.
The king is dead, long live the Mark II. After 15 long years, Canon finally upgraded one of the biggest-selling telezooms of all time - the 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS USM. Is it a worthy successor to the venerable, but still very capable original? Read more
Olympus has brought new life – and a new face – to the famed film-era PEN series with the all-new digital PEN-F. The PEN-F is a 20MP rangefinder-style interchangeable lens camera that inherits a lot of features from the OM-D E-M5 II, including 5-axis image stabilization and a high resolution shooting mode. It has an impressive spec sheet, but how does it perform? Read more

The GoPro HERO4 Session is the company's latest action camera release. Unlike GoPros before it, the Session is completely waterproof without the need for any housing. It is also the smallest, lightest GoPro to date, 50% smaller than the HERO4 and 40% lighter. Read more
Canon has added to its EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high-resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills photographers. The only difference between the models is that the 'S' has an optical low-pass filter, while the 'S R' has a self-cancelling filter (the same relationship as Nikon's D800 and D800E models shared). We've put both cameras through exhaustive tests. Read our full review to see what we think
The Canon PowerShot G5 X is a higher-end version of last year's G7 X and inherits its predecessor's 24-100mm lens and 20.2MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor and puts it into an SLR-style body with a built-in EVF, fully articulating LCD, three control dials and a hot shoe. Read our in-depth review to find out if this is the enthusiast compact you've been looking for.
The Sony a7R II is a 42MP full frame mirrorless camera with 5-axis image stabilization, featuring the world's first (and currently only) 35mm BSI CMOS sensor, and including a hybrid autofocus system and 4K video capabilities. It's the fifth in the company's a7 range of full frame cameras and the second high-resolution 'R' model. However, although its name and appearance are very similar to the first round of a7s, the R II arguably represents just as significant a step forwards as those first full frame mirrorless models did.
Though it's the fifth model in Sony's full-frame E-mount lineup, the a7R II arguably represents just as much of a technological leap forward as its first mirrorless full-frame predecessors did. Its 42MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, 399 on-sensor phase detection point AF system and 5-axis IS are just a few reasons why the a7R II is one of the most talked-about cameras of the last year. See how it performed in our comprehensive testing. Read more
The Samsung NX500 is the baby brother to the company's superb NX1 mirrorless camera. It brings over many of the features of the NX1, including its 28MP BSI CMOS sensor and AF system, and puts them into a compact body at a price competitive with other midrange mirrorless models. Read more
We've had a chance to spend some time shooting with the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 just before its official launch.
The Sony RX10 II is the follow-up to a camera we already thought quite highly of. While the 24-200mm F2.8 equivalent lens and external body design remain unchanged, the RX10 II sports a new stacked sensor and can record 4k video internally, with full sensor readout. It also features improved AF performance and a higher-res EVF, but is it worth the sticker price? Read more
Read our full review to find out how Motorola's latest flagship smartphone performs as a camera.
Tamron's 16-300mm F3.5-6.3 takes the superzoom concept it made famous a few steps forward. It offers a significant increase in telephoto range, and also goes wider to bring real wide-angle capability to the superzoom category for the first time. It's also earned a 'Macro' designation with its close focusing ability. Is it truly a super zoom? Take a look at our analysis. Read more
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 II is the next evolution of an already impressive camera. The E-M10 II introduces 5-axis stabilization to the entry-level OM-D line, while it maintains the 16.1MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII engine of its predecessor. A number of ergnomic and feature upgrades make the E-M10 II an enticing little ILC at a nice price. Does it deliver? Read more
The Fujifilm X-T10 puts many of the X-T1's capabilities into a smaller, less expensive body. It uses the same 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR Processor II and, despite a more compact body, offers an additional custom function button and even squeezes in a pop-up flash. Is the X-T10 capable of holding its own against APS-C competitors? Read our full analysis. Read more
The Fujifilm X-T1 was a landmark camera in many ways, with it's extremely high resolution electronic viewfinder, great image quality, weather-sealed body, and engaging control system (we even gave it a Gold award). It's fairly commonplace for camera companies to follow up successful launches of high-end products, such as the X-T1, with a slightly-stripped down, more reasonably-priced alternative that uses many of the same components; a younger sibling, if you will. The Fujifilm X-T10 is exactly that.
Sony defined a category when it rolled out the enthusiast-focused Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. This shirt pocketable compact's fourth iteration brings a new 20MP 1"-type stacked CMOS sensor to the table, maintaining an F1.8-2.8, 24-70mm equivalent zoom lens from the preceding model. Our full review analyzes its performance in the field and in our studio. Read more
Sony rejuvenated the premium compact market in 2012 when it introduced the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. The RX100 took a 1"-type sensor and relatively fast zoom lens and put it into a body that can slip into your pocket. Every year since has seen the arrival of a new RX100 model. The RX100 II added a new BSI CMOS sensor and hot shoe. Last year's RX100 III lost the hot shoe but gained a faster (but shorter) lens and clever pop-up EVF. The latest model inherits all of those things but adds a new stacked CMOS sensor that, according to Sony, is literally years ahead of the competition.
