You Can Discover New Planets With A DSLR 

Wouldn’t it be cool to discover a planet circling a lonely star light years away from Earth? Maybe you’d even get to name it. Actually exploring deep space is hard, but as IEEE Spectrum’s David Schneider points out, detecting exoplanets is pretty simple, simple enough that a basic DSLR and a telephoto lens can do it.


Canon G7 X Review: Canon's Best Point-And-Shoot Camera In Years

Five years ago, I was broke, but I still needed a great camera. The Canon S90 was the perfect fit for my needs, and my credit card balance. And I wasn’t the only one who thought so.

Nikon Is Poised To Beat Canon At DSLR Video

Video quality in DSLRs has been fairly steady in its seven years or so on the scene. There have been minor jumps in cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III, but DSLRs have been largely eclipsed in image quality by mirrorless and new video-focused cinema cameras. Nikon, used to playing second-fiddle to Canon, is not going down without a fight, and their new batch of DSLRs is proof.
