The Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera is a chunkier and more fully fledged shift up from the X-T2 with the same 24MP sensor, but with more enhanced video capabilities. There’s also in-body image stabilization, sloped viewfinder, and topside LCD screen, along with a healthily sized grip and larger buttons. Clearly building on the success of the
The Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 was released in August 2007 – a fantastic, high-quality workhorse lens, covering the most common zoom range for everyday needs.

The Sony a7 II is an image-stabilized full-frame mirrorless camera that was released at the end of 2014. It was the direct successor to the Sony a7 and uses the same full-frame 24-megapixel sensor as its older sibling.

Apple Watch has ruled over the burgeoning smartwatch scene. That is until an attractive Android Wear watch arrived in the form of the Moto 360.

I have a personal affinity for Sony cameras as my first digital was a Sony DSC-F717, which seemed at the time to be able to do a bit of everything and do it very well. The Sony DSC RX100 VI is no different, fitting into the “I can do a bit of everything” category. The
The Sony a6500 is here, and it is here to please. This slim-built camera is the best of all worlds in an era where everyone is a photographer. This sleek machine is slim and compact but packs a big punch. Continuous autofocus makes capturing the unexpected quick and easy, while an onboard image stabilizer ensures
If you want a “go anywhere, do anything” type of camera, then the GoPro range does a pretty good job of covering all bases. The GoPro Hero 5 Black can still be bought for a reasonable price and has some great features like waterproof to 10m and a broad dynamic range. Being so superwide angle
There are so many puns I could use when a camera has the word ‘Rebel’ in its name, but I will stick to just the latest version hailing from a long line of Rebels. Things have come a long way since those early rebellious times, sorry…the Canon EOS Rebel T6i (referred to as the 750D
The Canon 24-70mm zoom is quite the workhorse lens, being a go-to for most applications. It’s not too wide angle, not too telephoto, and wide open can cover most applications. The camera was originally released in 2002, with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM update in February 2012, bringing in a new lighter design
The Pentax K-1 Mark II is the latest iteration of this camera boasting new features and upgrades, but not necessarily a complete change from the original model. The camera definitely has some improvements, like the AF Tracking algorithm, with the camera having a great range of features for most situations. But the big question is
The Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9 is joining the current fashion for compact cameras in the rangefinder style, ideally suited for the photographer on the go. Compact shouldn’t be confused with a limited amount of features or quality – the DC-GX9 packs 20 megapixels, a Four Thirds sensor, and a nice tilting viewfinder to capture those extreme
The Nikon D810 nicely rounds off the brand’s 800-series and is not just a standard upgrade, but features functional upgrades that definitely make it worth buying into.

In 2016, Nikon released its highly anticipated, top-of-the-line flagship DSLR, the Nikon D5. Boasting a 20.8MP full-frame sensor, Expeed 5 processor, and 153–point autofocus system, it’s better than its predecessor, the D4S, with the whole unit built for the working photographer who wants a robust body that can work at high speed all the time.
From the Phantom to the Mavic, DJI is known for its drones. This summer, the company stepped up the competition with its newest addition, the Spark. Just by looking at it, it is not like the rest of the DJI drones – literally. The DJI Spark is the most compact drone the company has released,

It never ceases to amaze me how far drone technology has come on in recent years. I started looking into the technology back in 2008 when it was just a basic brain and you had to strap on your own lightweight camera. The biggest issues back then were camera vibrations, stabilization and seemingly needing years
In an effort to boost declining ratings for their social media platform, Snapchat announced the release of its original Spectacles in September 2016.

The Asus ZenWatch 3 probably hasn’t introduced any breakthroughs in terms of functionality but it most definitely turns head thanks to its unrivaled design.

They allow you to quickly interact with your phone, they push notifications so you never miss out on anything, and some of them can even help track your health. The LG G Watch was one of the
Most photographers go a bit weak at the knees when it comes to Hasselblad cameras. Medium format sensors and top quality is the name of their game, but outside of the studio, they are not always the most complete, well-rounded cameras. The Hasselblad X1D-50c marks a more compact design, still compatible with Hasselblad HC and
GoPro has become a household name for action cameras. With the release of their Hero 4 series, the brand started a new era of Ultra HD videos with impressive frame rates.

The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a 51.4-megapixel rangefinder-like medium format mirrorless camera, looking a lot like Fujifilm’s compact X-E3 mirrorless camera. Much of the workings are along the lines of its predecessor, the GFX 50S, but this time into a more compact and less pricey affair. On release, there are going to be clear comparisons
