The Lowepro Pro Runner RL x450 AW II is a new rolling bag out of the Pro Runner II Series. It is a reasonably-sized camera bag that holds quite a bit of gear. It also converts to a backpack when you need to traverse uneven terrain. [Read more…]

I got my hands on the new Canon Rebel T6s and have had it out a time or two now for some casual photography. My early thoughts on this camera is that it is a fantastic option for the budget-enthusiast and aspiring vacation photographer.
The resolution of the Rebel T6s is great at 24.2MP but that really isn’t something you notice anymore. It looks like noise-control has improved again and you are going to get good low light images with the kit lens thanks to the sensitivity of the new sensor. [Read more…]
I received my new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens today and wanted to share my initial impressions.
This lens is situated as the next Nifty Fifty in Canon’s line-up, offering the popular 50mm focal length at an affordable $125 price point. Of course, on APS-C cameras like the Canon EOS Rebel series will provide a field of view equivalent to an 80mm lens on a full frame camera. This makes it a nice option as a beginner’s portrait lens for the Canon Rebel shooter. [Read more…]
The Nikon D5500 is the latest starter camera in Nikon’s DX line. It is a step up from the D3300 and a step below the D7200. As such, it serves a nice position as an upgrade camera for beginners and a powerful package for enthusiasts.
The D5500 goes head-to-head against the Canon Rebel T6i and Rebel T6s models. In many sections of the spec sheet, the D5500 best the Canon alternatives and rivals even more advanced models. [Read more…]
The Canon PowerShot G7 X is one of those cameras that we have all been waiting for Canon to deliver. At the moment it was announced, there was a collective mumble of “finally” uttered among Canon enthusiasts around the world.
While Canon has attempted putting larger sensors on compact cameras (e.g., the G1 X), nothing had risen to the level of what Sony has been doing with its RX100 line of cameras. The Canon PowerShot G7 X is, in many ways, a knock-off of the Sony RX100 line. It even appears to use the same Sony 1″ sensor found in the RX100 cameras with its 20MP resolution, which is perfectly fine with me since Sony makes such a great product in the RX100 line.

DPReview has posted its review of the Samsung NX1. For the most part, it is a glowing review.
The 28.2MP backside-illuminate CMOS sensor seems to really set the NX1 apart from other APS-C cameras. Additionally, the 15fps frame rate with autofocus is not just a spec-line to boast about – but a real, bonafide feature that works as promised. [Read more…]
