Hands on with a light and compact full-frame EOS camera
While the other two mirrorless cameras I wrote about recently, the Sony A6400 and Fujifilm X-T30, are very capable and include powerful features, neither has a large, full-frame sensor like the one included on the 26.2-megapixel Canon EOS RP.
One of the things that stands out most of all with the RP is the price point: The EOS RP will retail for just...
Although the X-T30 is smaller and lighter than many in its class, it’s still a very capable camera

If 2018 was a banner year for new mirrorless cameras, 2019 has kept the momentum going with the introduction of a number of new smaller-sized cameras. One of the more notable was a full-featured mirrorless camera with an APS-C-sized image sensor: The Fujifilm X-T30. Here’s our first look at what we thought about the new model.

Hands on with a new mirrorless camera that's smaller and lighter than most, yet still very capable
The resolution of the Sony a6400’s 24.2-megapixel sensor provides plenty of pixels to crop and recompose images, like this one, which was originally a vertical.

The Sony FE 400mm F2.8 GM OSS lens is remarkable on many levels. First, it’s smaller and lighter than any that have come before. It’s silent, fast and very accurate when paired with the Sony a9 camera. But to stop there would be a mistake. It’s the longest and fastest full-frame, super-telephoto lens designed specifically for mirrorless technology,...

With the release of Tamron’s new 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD for the Sony full-frame mirrorless camera, the company joins a very limited group of manufacturers making native autofocus lenses for Sony’s FE mount.

There are few items in the digital photographic chain more important than the monitor, as it’s literally impossible to accurately evaluate and edit digital images without an accurate display.
