To be frank, most monitors that traverse my desk aren’t exactly the most exciting in the world. If the panel is sharp and accurate, I am 95% satisfied, since all the other bells and whistles are almost unnecessary if you just need something to sit in front of you for editing photos and video. This thinking all changed when the...

If there ever was a perfect pocket powerhouse camera, it would be the RX100. Packing a 20MP 1"-type sensor since its first generation, the RX100 series changed the game when it came to high-end digital point-and-shoots—they were among the first that could truly be called “professional.” Each release since then has only further cemented the RX series legacy, and with the...

It’s not often that we get to combine our passion and our hobby in life (and even less often to get paid for it), but we recently had the opportunity to do so. On a warm spring day on a holiday weekend, we were tasked with two things – checking out the photographic opportunities in the Adirondacks, an area where scenery is its own dimension, and take a camera of our choosing that we think was up...

In my years at sea on merchant ships, warships, and sailboats, I spent a lot of time looking through binoculars. After a weekend on the water and on land with a pair of Fujinon Techno-Stabi image-stabilized binoculars, the...

The days of needing specialized, persnickety tools and weeks of training to “fly a camera” are, for the most part, over, especially when dealing with smaller cameras. It’s the details that make the difference, and it’s in the details where the Zhiyun Crane 2 shines. Robust and...

I have always been of the opinion that if you have a camera and you understand the limitations of what it can and cannot do, you can take acceptable—if not very good—photographs with just about anything that goes “click.” With this thought in mind, I recently went on vacation with two cameras: a “real” camera, specifically a...

Several years ago, a news article in the satirical newspaper, The Onion, stated that every resident of New York City had spontaneously decided to leave immediately. The article stated, “… living in a dingy, grime-caked apartment while exhaust fumes from an idling truck seep through your bedroom window isn’t worth slightly bigger bagels.” Well, if you go to one of Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Company...

One of the nice things about working for a technology company is that not only do we get to review lots of cool gear, but sometimes that gear is so useful it becomes part of our everyday workflow. Take, for example, the Sony DPT-RP1 Digital Paper System, which, after some initial in-house testing...

The GoPro Fusion was probably the first 360-degree camera in which I was legitimately interested. It wasn’t the first of its kind, but the Fusion’s 5.2K video resolution, combined with the build quality and ease-of-use for which GoPro is known, intrigued me enough to buy one. While the prospect of 360...

We came. We saw. And on the rare occasion we managed to conquer, at E3 2018. There were so many announcements and in-depth looks at the biggest games coming out this year, we figured we would give something of a recap of our favorite games from the show. Read on to find out what we thought brought the heat to LA this year. Best Nintendo...

I was one of those people, curious about this upcoming space adventure where one of the most famous...
