Canon-EOS-M-Black

The EOS M is Canon’s first foray into the mirrorless camera market that is currently dominated by Micro Four Thirds models from Olympus and Panasonic, along with Sony’s NEX lineup. The EOS M was welcomed with a collective “It’s about time…” from most of the digital imaging press, who have wondered when Canon would get around to participating in this exploding market segment.

First impressions on Canon’s unveiling of the EOS M were mixed – with some excited to see Canon utilized such a compact form factor while retaining the APS-C sensor – and others (primarily enthusiasts) wondering why there was such a neglect of their market segment by the failure of Canon to include features like a viewfinder.

Flashpoint 500C LED Light

The Flaspoint 500C LED dimmable light is a rather compact and affordable LED solution from Adorama. The light features 500 individual LED bulbs – 250 of which are daylight balanced and 250 of which are tungsten balanced.

The two sets of LED bulbs are controlled by two independent dimmer knobs. As a result, you have a fully dimmable light and a variable color temperature light. Both are pretty cool features for a $200 video light. [click to continue…]

Sony RX100 Review

in Sony

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 is a 20MP point and shoot camera.  But this isn’t just any point and shoot camera.  The RX100 sets itself apart from every other compact camera out there thanks to a much larger image sensor, which measures the same size as the Nikon 1 Series mirrorless camera system.  Somehow, Sony managed to cram that sensor into a pocketable digicam.

Read on to find out if that big sensor combined with the rest of the RX100 features is enough to make this camera the king of pocket cams. [click to continue…]
