July 21, 2021 Sony a6600 Review

I was a bit surprised in early 2019 when Sony announced and released the Sony a6400 APS-C mirrorless camera.  Many of us expected Sony to continue moving upscale with an a6500 replacement, but I concluded in my review of the a6400 that it was more of an upgrade to the Sony a6300.  I surmised (correctly) […] [Read more...]

April 19, 2021 Sony Alpha 1 (ILCE-1) Review

What do you get when you combine the massive resolution of the Sony a7RIV (almost!), the blazing speed of the Sony a9II (and more!), and all the video capabilities of the Sony a7SIII?  The answer is the Sony Alpha 1, aka the Sony A1, or, more technically, the Sony ILCE-1.  The Alpha 1 is definitely […] [Read more...]

March 25, 2021 Sigma FP-L Mirrorless Camera Review

Most of us know Sigma as a lensmaker and nothing more, but Sigma has actually been developing somewhat quirky cameras for some time.  Many of those were built around Sigma’s own SA mount or with a fixed lens and tended to be crop sensor cameras (APS-C or APS-H).  They frequently had unique shapes well outside [&h [Read more...]

March 15, 2021 FUJIFILM GFX-100 Medium Format Camera Review

All of my time spent with Fuji products to this point has been on the APS-C end of the spectrum, but I’ve had a lot of requests to dip my toes into the more extreme end of their business, which is their GFX lineup of medium format products.  Fuji has been unique in their marketing […] [Read more...]

January 5, 2021 FUJIFILM X-S10 Camera Review

Fujifilm has long carved out their own unique path in the competitive mirrorless camera market.  They’ve elected to focus on APS-C on one end and Medium Format at the other extreme, skipping the very popular full frame space altogether.  Many of their APS-C cameras fall on the premium end of the spectrum in terms [Read more...]

December 9, 2020 Canon EOS R6 Review

While it was the Canon EOS R5 (my review here) that grabbed my attention personally (it is very close to being a perfect camera for my uses), it was the Canon EOS R6 that was even more interesting to others due to the R5 being overkill for many photographers in both resolution and price.  Canon’s […] [Read more...]

November 9, 2020 Sony a7C Review

The size of mirrorless cameras has trended ever larger as the early focus on (mostly) smaller sensors and compact lenses has shifted to high resolution full frame sensors and professional grade lenses designed to match (or exceed) what was available for DSLRs in the past.  Some of us don’t mind this trend, as we are [ [Read more...]

October 15, 2020 Canon EOS R5 Review

I was excited about the Canon EOS R5 from the moment it was announced.  Finally it seemed that Canon was putting together a truly competitive camera that was ready to show that they were serious about the mirrorless space.  The high-powered EOS R5 was rumored to have high resolution (45Mpx), high speed (12FPS in mechan [Read more...]
