New Pentax Optio WG-2 Rugged Digital Camera

With their distinctive bowtie-like body styling, the newly-announced Pentax Optio WG-2 and WG-2 GPS bear an uncanny resemblance to their rugged Optio ancestors.

New Pentax K-01 APS-C Format Mirrorless Camera System

Pentax has joined the mirrorless camera system club with the announcement of the Pentax K-01. Unlike a majority of the current crop of mirrorless camera systems, which contain Four Thirds format sensors, the new Pentax K-01 is designed around a larger APS-C CMOS sensor (1.5x) that offers 16MP.

New Pentax Optio VS20

Extreme Telephoto and Zoom Lens 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.

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.

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.

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°.

Fast Glass

The number of fast, wide-aperture prime optics we carry at B&H has grown over the past year, and in a world that has become increasingly populated by slower, variable aperture zooms, this is encouraging news.
