Sony's A7 Mark II Is A Solid Upgrade, But Video's A Bummer

We recently did a quick preview of Sony’s new A7 Mark II, the brand new revision to last year’s full-frame mirrorless camera. Since then I’ve had a chance to spend significantly more quality time with the Mark II, and am ready to ruminate on what’s better and worse on version two.


Sony A7 Mark II Hands-On: Here's What 5-Axis Stabilisation Can Do

The recent surprise announcement of Sony’s a7 Mark II had people reeling about the first-ever 5-axis in-body stabilisation on a full-frame camera. We recently got our meathooks on one of the new cams and wanted to show you just a bit of what it can do before giving it a more comprehensive report.


Sony's A7 Mark II Camera Will Be Available Next Month For $1700

Last week Sony Japan hit us with a surprise announcement of the A7 Mark II, an upgrade over the popular full-frame mirrorless camera. The initial launch was only for Asia, which left people on this side of the pond a bit confused. Well, we now have pricing and U.S. availability for the new cam that sports wicked in-body 5-axis stabilisation, along with other improvements.


Fujfilm Stuffs The X-T1 With A Zillion New Features In Firmware Update

The thing about software is that it’s… soft. Malleable! You can add neato things to it that make products better.

It’s replete with fancy new abilities.


5 Camera Features You Think You Want But Are Actually Bad Ideas

Camera geeks are a needy bunch. They all have their opinions and won’t hesitate to shout at manufacturers to include their pet requests. But that doesn’t mean all those requests are good ideas. Here are five commonly desired camera features that are better left to the trash heap of design.


Digital Cameras Explained: DSLR vs Mirrorless vs Point And Shoot Cameras

Gizmodo Video Guide: Despite being smaller, lighter, mechanically simpler, and more high-tech than digital SLRs — mirrorless cameras are just as powerful when it comes to actually taking photos. Here’s what you should consider before your next big camera purchase.


Sony A7 Owners Get A New Super-Wide Lens, With New Primes Coming Soon

Sony’s trio of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the a7, a7r and a7s, are wonderfully capable machines. Unfortunately, there just aren’t that many native lenses to choose from. Today, a new super-wide zoom enters the fold that will hopefully make these slick bodies more appealing, with some primes on the way.


Panasonic GM5: The Smallest System Camera Around

Last year’s Panasonic GM1 was an absolutely tiny camera with interchangeable lenses. It seemed like a curious design, because once you changed lens from the kit pancake to a normal-sized lens, it turned out to be not-so-tiny anymore. That hasn’t stopped Panasonic from pushing out a similarly small follow-up, the souped-up GM5.


Fujifilm x100t: The Retro Compact Gets Some Subtle Improvements

How do you upgrade a camera that everyone already loves when you don’t really have much new technology to stuff inside? With Fujifilm’s x100t, the latest iteration of the classic-styled fixed-lens shooter, the answer is to buff out some minor flaws, add maybe a feature or two, and of course, a whole new letter: “t”.


IFA 2014: Hands On With Sony's ILCE-QX1 Interchangeable Lens Camera

Now, I already had a vague inkling that Japan’s most adventurous tech company would have some interesting announcements at IFA 2014. Sony has done the unthinkable, though — shoe-horned a relatively massive APS-C imaging sensor into one of its cut-down lens cameras. No screen, just a few buttons — just a whole bunch of pixels and Wi-Fi working their magic.
