Fuji X100 Review

As of today, the Fuji X100 stands in a category of its own in terms of features, price and performance.  While other manufacturers have attempted to push the envelope, none have succeeded like Fuji has with the X100.  Armed with a 12.3MP sensor and a fixed focal length of 23mm (35mm equivalent), the X100 is not your ordinary point and shoot camera.  It’s also not a DSLR or what we typically categorize as a “mirrorless” camera even though it has no reflex mirror.

The Fuji X100 stands alone as a game changer in the “pro”-sumer photography realm. [Read more...]

Canon Rebel T3i Review

The Canon Rebel T3i (aka 600D) is the lastest entry-level DSLR from Canon.  As a step-up from the budget-oriented Rebel T3, the Rebel T3i offers a little more bang-for-your-buck while still retaining an entry-level price point.

Canon 60D Review

The Canon 60D is prosumer DSLR with video capture prowess.  It sports an 18MP APS-C format sensor and a swivel LCD.  As the successor to the Canon 50D, it’s somewhat of a change in the natural progression of the xxD line of cameras.  A smaller form-factor gives it a more Canon Rebel look and feel; however, the video features and articulating LCD display take it up to and beyond some of the capabilities of the Canon 7D and 5D Mark II.

Canon PowerShot S95 Review

The Canon PowerShot S95 is a 10MP point and shoot camera that is essentially a slight refresh to its predecessor, the PowerShot S90.  With the ability to capture RAW image files and a bright f/2.0 lens, the S95 is a great pocket camera for the DSLR shooters out there.

Nikon Coolpix P7000 Review

Sony WX9 Hands-On Review

The Sony Cyber-shot WX9 is 16.2MP compact camera that fits somewhere in the middle of Sony’s early-2011 lineup.  The image sensor is Sony’s rather impressive back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is backed up by the power BIONZ image processor that allows the WX9 to deliver up to 10fps in burst mode and capture 1080i AVCHD video.

The WX9 is a close mate to the WX10, although it takes a step down in a couple parts of the feature set.  Check out my first impressions of the WX9 below. [Read more...]
