The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 has been a solid sales performer since it was introduced almost four years ago, which says volumes about the camera. Rather than tinker with a formula that works, Panasonic has released an update of this popular Micro Four Thirds (MFT) pocket rocket, and it'...

A good lens can last a lifetime. Many photographers cherish their favorite pieces of glass for years, undeterred by newer, flashier models. The quality and durability of certain materials can add a cultish appeal to (often manual focus) lenses of the past. In recent years, lens technology has become increasingly complicated by electronic components, potentially putting long-term usability into...

Lensbaby lenses are like chicken. There are dozens of ways to prepare chicken—you can bake, fry, grill, broil, or smoke it, and each method is unique, but different. Lensbaby lenses are like chicken recipes in that they are basically variations of a common theme with each new model being unique, and similarly different. Lensbaby lenses and chicken are dissimilar in that unlike chicken, you can’t...

I have long championed smaller, lighter lenses. If I can find a high-performing compact lens that’s sharp and renders natural-looking out-of-focus specular highlights (good bokeh), I’m interested even if it only has a maximum aperture of f/3.5 or f/4.5. And if I can find a sharp, compact lens with image quality that equals comparable lenses costing two, three, or four times the price, sign me up...

About a year ago I had an opportunity to field test the Tokina FiRIN 20mm f/2 FE MF, Tokina’s first full-frame Sony E-mount and only premium FiRIN-series lens. I liked it. In fact, I liked it a lot. The lens was sharp, with strong, saturated colors, and just the right degree of contrast. When shooting...

Last January, I found out I would be heading to CES as part of the B&H team reporting from the show, and since a new travel backpack had been on my wish list for a few months, I figured that would be the time to jump on one. Through much deliberation, I finally settled on the ...

Recently, Manfrotto expanded its Befree travel tripod collection, adding some more serious models for photographers who need a bit more support. I was lucky enough to be given the flagship piece, the Befree GT Carbon, to use on various adventures. It is certainly the company’s...

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...

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...

The Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Lens is an impressive addition to a line of lenses already synonymous with extremely sharp image rendering. The new offering serves as a much anticipated “Art”-ification of Sigma’s previous (and currently discontinued) 70mm f/2.8 macro lens. Available for Sigma SA and...
