A lot of people still have positive associations with the Kodak brand and its iconic logos, but it’s worth clearing something up: not everything with the Kodak name on it has much connection to a bunch of clever people in Rochester, New York.
Richard graduated as a scientist but had a lot more fun writing and shooting for his university magazine. A number of years spent variously as a reporter, writer and editor on science and engineering titles combined his knowledge of science with his interest in images and words. But it was spotting the connections between emission spectra, white balance and all the nonsense he'd taught himself playing around in Photoshop that helped kindle an interest in digital photography. Searching for a camera led to him discovering DPReview and Richard was recruited by Phil Askey in 2007. He's been combining his love of photography, communication and attention to detail (pedantry?) ever since.
He has unusually strong opinions about lenses for the APS-C format.

We shot the Panasonic GH5S against the Sony a7S II to see whether the video-centric Lumix can wrest the low light crown away from its full-frame rival.
The Nikon D850 appeared destined to tower over the camera world like some colossus until the Sony a7R III emerged like some rival kaiju. Now we've had a chance to shoot both cameras in a variety of situations, which wins the battle of the behemoths?

Even though (or perhaps because) 2017 has seen the release of some of the most impressive cameras he's ever used, Richard has ducked the difficult decisions and made an unexpected choice for his Gear of the Year. But, as always, he's going to argue his point.
Sony's a7R Mark III shoots 42.4MP files at 10fps and incorporates a robust video feature set, large battery, refined ergonomics and more. It certainly looks impressive, but what is it like to use, and how does it stack up against the rest of the market? Find out in our full review.

DxOMark has awarded the Pentax 645Z 101 points, making it the second-highest scoring medium format camera it's tested (or the highest scoring from 2015 to now, based on the originally published results).

Roger Cicala of Lens Rentals shows us what happens when your camera (regardless of brand) takes a swim in salt water... and why 'weather sealed' does NOT mean 'waterproof.'
