Advanced Mirrorless Digital Cameras

Mirrorless cameras have become increasingly tempting as lighter-weight alternatives to bulkier traditional DSLR systems for many photographers, advanced and otherwise. Although DSLRs have gotten smaller over time, they don’t approach the diminutive sizes of their mirrorless counterparts.

Long Zoom Point-and-Shoot Camera Roundup

One of the things we appreciate about cutting edge lens technology is that it’s now possible to squeeze insanely wide range zoom lenses into palm-sized camera bodies.

When the Going Gets Tough, Pelican Cases are Tougher

When people ask me why I recommend Pelican cases for storing and transporting cameras, lighting equipment and other sorts of shock-sensitive tools and doodads safely, I tell them to read the warranty statement that comes with every Pelican shipping case. 

Taking Control of Exposure

Few things improved my photography more than learning when and how to set the exposure manually. That knowledge allows us to get good exposures in situations that automatic exposure can't handle. Setting the exposure manually also encourages us to make conscious, creative decisions about exposure.

I've heard some photographers say that they don't see any reason to use manual exposure. If that's your view, here's why I think you should reconsider.

Entry-Level Mirrorless Cameras

Ever since Olympus popped the cork on its first Digital Pen, the market has been bubbling over with an impressively large selection of high quality, mirror-free digital cameras.

Professional DSLR Roundup

Regardless of make and model, each of the following DSLRs is the best offering from the camera manufacturers represented in our Professional DSLR Roundup. Although many of these cameras seem similar in many respects to their mid- and entry-level counterparts—at least on paper—the narrative changes dramatically once you pick one up.

Olympus PEN Roundup

Back in 2009 Olympus rattled roofs when they unveiled their first mirrorless camera, the Olympus E-P1. Bedecked in a retro-style body that channeled the vibes of the original Olympus Pen, a popular half-frame film camera from the 1960s, the “Digital PEN” was an instant hit.

Mid-Level DSLR Roundup

On the surface, it’s sometimes hard to tell the differences between entry-level and mid-level DSLRs. Though some mid-level DSLRs are physically larger than entry-level models, they’re not always larger—and even when they are it’s often not by much.

Entry-Level DSLR Roundup

Considering the degree of advanced technology contained in the average entry-level DSLR these days, one often feels the urge to add an asterisk to the term “entry-level,” because smaller size and plastic body panels aside, each of these cameras is a real honker in its own right.

Wide and Extreme Wide-Angle Lens Roundup

One of the broadest categories of lenses we sell at B&H is wide and extra-wide-angle lenses. As for defining the parameters of wide and ultra wide, the safest definition of a standard wide-angle lens would be a lens with an angle of view between 62° and 84°.
