Parting, they say, is such sweet sorrow -- and yet part with the Sony RX100 III is what I must do. I've just posted the third and final part of my Sony RX100 III Shooter's Report blog, and it's time for opinions rendered and perhaps a few tears shed. Some cameras are easier than others to give back; suffice to say that the RX100 III is a camera that's hard to let go. But let go I did, if only for long enough to put fingers to keyboard and answer some of your remaining questions -- as well as a [...]

Ever since the 1999 sci-fi action movie "The Matrix," the so-called "bullet time" technique has become immensely popular in all kinds of visual productions. By arranging multiple cameras around a subject and triggering them at the same time, the technique allows to create a virtual camera movement around the scene while at the same time freezing the action. When the Swiss TV production company DokLab was approached by public broadcaster SRF about a documentary on extreme sports, their client asked them not to produce a... (read more) [...]

More than two and a half years since it crashed near Isola del Giglio, Italy, the wreck of the Costa Concordia was successfully refloated this week, and has begun its final journey — a four-day trip to a scrap yard in Genoa. The cruise ship capsized after striking a reef on January 13, 2012, killing 32 passengers and crew members. The complex salvage operation was the largest and most expensive in history. Gathered here are images, including several interior shots, of the ship's time near Isola del Giglio — from the initial disaster to today's towing away of the Costa [...]

Kit lenses tend not to get a lot of love. They're often cast off as mediocre with lackluster sharpness or lots of CA or distortion. With our latest lens review on the Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH MEGA O.I.S. G Vario, this lens bucks the trend with improved sharpness, low distortion as well as a smaller and lighter build -- making it even more portable with those smaller Micro Four Thirds cameras. The Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II is, despite the "II" moniker, the third version of the G-system and GF-system kit lens and is... [...]

Ever since Nikon's 1-series launched with the V1 -- predecessor of today's Nikon V3 -- way back in 2011, the company has taken flak for choosing a smaller image sensor than its main rivals, most of whom have opted for Four Thirds or APS-C type sensors in their mirrorless cameras. Nikon has stuck to its guns, though, firm in its belief that the 1-series cameras offer important advantages over the larger-sensored competition. The Nikon V3 hones the flagship 1-series design with changes throughout, aimed at playing to the strengths... (read more) [...]

Canon turned a few heads back when it released the original PowerShot G1 X: the industry's first compact, large-sensor camera to offer a zoom lens. The 1.5"-type sensor was leaps and bounds larger than what's inside the typical compact camera, and it was married with Canon's popular PowerShot G-series build, ergonomics and functionality. While Canon got a number of things "right" with that camera, namely great image quality, very good optics, and twin dials that resemble DSLR functionality, it had some rough edges with slower than...
