In this day and age, technology is constantly evolving before our eyes. Companies are not only competing against each other but seeing how to renovate and improve their latest items. From what it looks like, tiny and portable seems to be the goal for most items being released which catches the attention for many consumers.
The Sony a7II 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.

The Canon Rebel T5i (or 700D) came to market as an update from the older Canon Rebel T4i (650D). These DSLRs, though entry level cameras, offer a wide range of capabilities to help improve your photography skills. As this review shows, the Canon T5i stands as the perfect transition from compact cameras to DSLRs. Canon
The Sony a7R III was the latest addition to the popular Sony a7 series of mirrorless cameras.

Key Features 42 MP
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. Unlike other smartwatches that looked complicated like they have been taken from the future and brought to the past, this smartwatch is more reminiscent of the traditional watch that we

The 1D X Mark II has much of the similarities of previous models with some choice upgrades. An improved 20.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, Dual Pixel
The Nikon SB-5000 is a top of the line speedlight for Nikon digital SLRs and film SLRs. It uses i-TTL for exposure control and can be used off-camera singly or in groups of multiple flashes. While it is compatible on camera with most of Nikon’s current offerings, it is truly at home on professional level
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 DSC RX100 VI is no different, fitting into the “I can do a bit of everything” category. The camera
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 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 EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM was released in 2002, with the ‘II’ update in February 2012, bringing in a new lighter design with better optics.
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’s 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. The D800/E had bags of raw dynamic range, with the D810 building on this aspect. Features like ISO 64 mode, electronic front curtain shutter, a new mirror mechanism,
In 2016, Nikon released its highly anticipated, top-of-the-line flagship DSLR, the D5. Boasting a 20.8MP full-frame sensor, Expeed 5 processor, and 153 point autofocus system, it’s better than its predecessor, th 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 Spark is the most compact drone the company has released, weighing
With the latest league of drones and their reliable features, consumers now want ease of portability and compact design, too. And, the Mavic Pro from DJI delivers that. The days of a drone taking up half of the trunk of your car are gone! This fantastic unit folds up to a very compact size and
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 first version of the Spectacles were sunglasses with an embedded camera that allowed you to record 10-second video clips hands-free. The hype was high for these glasses and everyone was excited
ZenWatch probably hasn’t introduced any breakthroughs in terms of functionality but it most definitely turns head thanks to its unrivaled design. The rounded shape resembles a traditional timepiece emphasized by an eclipse-inspired appearance and chronograph-styled buttons. The watch can be easily synchronized with your mobile devices and even used as remote control for their cameras.
Smartwatches are extremely popular nowadays because of all the practical features they make accessible right on your wrist. 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. There are two popular versions of GoPro Hero 4 – Black and Silver (a budget-friendly Hero Session turned out to be less successful). These
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
If Canon is good at one thing, it’s gradually turning out products that do just what they’re intended to, which is to capture great photos and videos. After all, they are one of the best manufacturers of compatible and changeable lens cameras. The Canon EOS 5D series is possibly one of the most identifiable cameras
The Canon EOS M50 is an entry-level mirrorless interchangeable lens camera aimed at those who want a lightweight solution backed by great images and video, without the extra weight of its more expensive siblings.

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro was initially released in March 2016 and has since taken the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) world by storm. The Phantom set the standard for drone manufacturers and is used by construction crews, photographers, videographers, news crews, engineers, law enforcement, search and rescue teams, and many others.

When it comes to buying a camera, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the massive range of available features and price tags to match.

This summer, millions of people lined up to get their hands on the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, both released internationally on the same day. As always with a new iPhone release, there was tons of hype and expectation. So, how did they fare? Let’s dive in and have a look at everything
Luminar 2018, which is the latest edition of photo editing software from Skylum, is arguably one of the most advanced photo editing solutions available in the market.

This September, at a highly anticipated event, Apple released the fourth version of its wildly popular Apple Watch. The biggest change? This next generation device comes with some conspicuous health tracking additions: low heart rate detection and a built-in electrocardiogram (ECG) for the people who are concerned about their vitals. This is the first time
