Battle Of The Superzooms: Canon G3X Vs. Sony RX10 Mark II

A while back, camera makers decided that people want to zoom in really, really far. More recently, they also realised people want great image quality and advanced controls. (Who’da thought!?) Here are new two cameras that do both. Let’s see which is worth your hard-earned dollars.

The Exo GP-1 Turns Your GoPro Hero Into A Mini Leica

So many people these days carry their GoPros around with them on holiday — walk around Sydney’s Circular Quay, near the Gizmodo office, and you’ll see them on selfie sticks, on little waterproof handles, and in holidaymakers’ hands, using them as compact wide-angle cameras. But they’re a little small and unwieldy to snap photos with; the Exo GP-1 wants to change that with a custom housing that includes a shutter button, viewfinder and cold-shoe accessory mount.

Sony A7R Mark II Review: A Beautiful Dream That Ends In Tears

You can’t buy a single camera that does it all, no matter how much you spend. The most expensive DSLR or mirrorless offerings will give you top-notch photos or great video — not both in a single package. But Sony’s A7r Mark II is tantalizingly close to being that do-it-all camera.

Trove Of Architectural Photos Shows When LA's Skyline Became Modern

At the dawn of the 1960s, Los Angeles lacked a true city skyline. A long-standing 13-storey height restriction, in force since 1904 and only recently repealed in 1956, had created a downtown whose only vertical accent was the 32-storey City Hall.

Your camera does a great job of snapping clean, clear photographs whether you’re in bright daylight or out in less desirable lighting conditions like dim twilight or inside a dark room.

Here’s what you need to know to get started.

Gizmodo Photo Guide: Changing Lenses Will Improve Your Photos

If you find your camera’s ‘kit’ lens — the lens that was included in the box — isn’t cutting the mustard, try to work out what you’re not happy about. Is it not focusing fast enough, or is it struggling to focus on close-up subjects? Do you need a wider zoom range, or can you choose a lens that’s designed purely for ultra-wide landscape photos or telephoto paparazzi-style bird-watching?

Ford's New Headlights Spot And Turn To Illuminate Hazards At Night

Self-driving smart cars might still be years away, but the technology that makes them so smart is already benefitting drivers.
