I love tough cameras. Nowadays so much sophisticated, high-tech finery is protected by a thin plastic casing and when that casing breaks—and it will—the whole system risks collapse. “Tough" cameras fly in the face of adversity and have earned a category unto themselves with a simple and befitting name to match. Sure, these cameras share core features—underwater capability, shock and cold... READ MORE

The Pentax K-3 DSLR is getting a lot of praise for a camera that was only announced three weeks ago. Specifically, the first-of-its-kind selectable anti-aliasing simulator is garnering attention for an optional function that, prior to the K-3, required two separate cameras to achieve. But in my short time with this camera it became clear that it’s not just the anti-aliasing filter option that makes the K-3 a camera worth talking about.

The Pentax MX-1 is a vintage style, though fully modern, point-and-shoot camera with a 12MP sensor that's relatively large  at 1/1.7".
