Managing Editor

Allison has her father to thank for introducing her to photography at a young age. She's written professionally about cameras and consumer technology since 2008, including several years as Editor of DigitalCameraReview.com. She comes to DPReview from North Carolina where she wrote about smartphones, ate more biscuits than she'd care to admit to and spent several months accumulating bruises while training to become a roller girl. She's excited to be writing about photography again full-time and eager to explore Seattle with a camera at her side. Her Instagram account is shamelessly flooded with photos of her cat.

From helpful travel accessories to really nice wool socks, we've got some ideas for those who are shopping for a photographer this season.

Canon EOS M200 tops our shortlist of best easy-to-use cameras

We recently named the Canon EOS M200 our top choice for cameras under $500, and we're recognizing it again – this time as the best easy-to-use camera on the market.

The Pixel 4 can't beat a compact camera, but that doesn't matter

iPhone 11's Portrait Mode sets a high bar for the Pixel 4

We would expect the iPhone 11's Portrait Mode to outperform the Pixel 3, and it does. But Google has its work cut out in more than one way if its next-gen flagship is to stay competitive.

The 16-55mm F2.8 provides Sony APS-C shooters with a useful 24-82.5mm equivalent range and a bright, constant aperture. Take a look at how it performs.

iPhone 11 vs. iPhone XR: What's the difference?

Apple says the iPhone XR isn't going anywhere – even now that the iPhone 11 is on sale. The two devices are priced $100 apart – so what does that extra cash get you?
