The Nikon D700 is the latest in what is clearly a continuing trend in so-called “full-frame” D-SLRs. Unless a radical departure from the classic 35mm form factor takes place, this class of camera cannot accommodate a larger sensor, at least in terms of area. The D700 does offer an (effective) 12.1-megapixel resolution, modest in terms of some of the competition, but also priced to...

In the latest in an almost unbelievable series of service advisories for their D750 DSLR, Nikon has announced an expanded shutter service advisory for this apparently snakebitten camera.

Is it possible that one day we might be able to bypass basic, global in computer editing for our digital images, and rely instead on the powerful on-board microprocessors in future digital SLRs? That's the implication of some of the new features in Nikon's latest enthusiast-aimed camera, the D80. Priced at $999 (body only) list, with a kit including an 18-135mm...

Earlier this month DXOMark named Nikon’s D850 as the best camera they’ve ever tested, giving it their first-ever score of 100. It turns out that the D850’s reign was short-lived, as the Hasselblad X1 D medium format mirrorless camera just received a DXOMark score of 102.

The Nikon N90s was the first autofocus 35mm SLR that I owned and I have many fond memories of using and capturing film images with that camera.

More complaints are rolling in about the Nikon D750. Several owners of Nikon’s beleaguered, semi-pro full frame DLSR have been posting videos on YouTube showing their cameras experiencing error (ERR) messages when shooting at fast shutter speeds.

Olympus decided to build an impressive camera that goes where none has gone before, the Olympus E-30.

The Olympus EVOLT E-330 is the first interchangeable lens digital SLR with a true, full-time Live View feature. Framing a shot with the E-330 is just as convenient as it is with a compact digital camera. You can preview the subject in full color on a flip-out, variable-angle LCD monitor, another first for a digital SLR camera.

 

In fact, there are two distinct Live View...

The first Four Thirds format D-SLR with a built-in Image Stabilizer, the EVOLT E-510 is an incredibly versatile camera in many respects. This 10-megapixel model offers several benefits over the previous EVOLT models, including higher resolution, the faster TruePic III processor with superior noise reduction, plus additional features in Capture and Playback modes. But the new...

This morning Canon launched a duo of 32.5-megapixel cameras, the EOS 90D DSLR and EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless models. Both cameras share a number of powerful capabilities in a different form factor.

The second D-SLR from Panasonic, this 10-megapixel model is quite different than the original 7-megapixel Lumix DMC-L1. The latter--built like a tank, and still available--is an unusually traditional model in many respects. It resembles a large/heavy 35mm rangefinder camera and features "retro"-style controls, including a mechanical aperture ring on the...

Pentax DSLR fans got some welcome news today. Ricoh Imaging, the parent company that owns the Pentax brand, just announced it's been developing a Pentax K-series DSLR, which will go on display in Tokyo, Japan at a special event tomorrow.

The Pentax K-1 ($1,796.95) is the first full-frame (36x24mm) SLR from the company since it introduced the legendary LX film camera back in 1980. The Pentax K-1 has a 36.4-megapixel sensor that lacks an anti-aliasing filter to increase sharpness and image quality, a trendy feature these days. Pentax spins it differently by including an AA Filter Simulator that eliminates moiré without requiring a physical anti-aliasing filter.

For me, the Mark II designation forever conjures up images of the classic Jaguar Mark 2 automobile, but this new Pentax DSLR may change my mind. When testing the original Pentax K-1 for Shutterbug I was impressed by its outstanding construction and image quality. That thing was built like a tank with styling reminiscent of the classic medium format Pentax 67.

Ricoh Imaging introduced the 24-megapixel Pentax K-3 II DSLR earlier this year. The Pentax K-3 II is the successor to the K-3 from 2013 and while it shares some features with that model, it adds a few new tricks, including an improved shake reduction system, a new high-speed AF algorithm, and built-in GPS.
