Sony’s a7RII took the full frame mirrorless market by storm just a few years ago with killer specs, compact design, and unparalleled image quality. With the introduction of the a7RIII, that storm will likely turn destructive to the competition in remarkable ways. But with the same 42MP image sensor, 4k video, and almost identical looking body, it’s easy to feel like this seemingly minor update is less than the DSLR killer. But after shooting with the new Sony a7RIII side by side with the a7RII, I can attest that this is way more than a minor update.

Sony’s new a7R III is a crazy example at how quickly this company is innovating. Just 6 months after the legendary a9 (check out the a9 review!), we have a completely redesigned full frame camera with an impressive spec list and a host of improvements. But not everything here is new and this short release cycle leaves a few minor items untouched.

With a mind boggling 18-400mm zoom lens, Tamron should have your attention! But the question is whether this crazy focal length can still offer amazing image quality. So, let’s take a look at this Tamron 18-400mm VC Lens in this review and see if the performance is worthy of your camera.

When the Nikon D7500 was first announced, I had a bit of mixed feelings. There were some amazing new specs and the promise of great image quality most of which were inherited from the D500, but Nikon had pulled some of the features that made the Nikon D7200 such an amazing new camera. While I’m still not thrilled about the lack of dual cards for example, for the most part I’m accepting the change so let’s check out this new camera, the image quality, features, and compare it to the growing competition.
These are 5 hacks I use all the time for more creative photos and videos. Whether you need to remove or draw focus away from distracting objects, or just want to enhance and get more creative with your images, these 5 things can be used with any camera and lens to make some fun, interesting, and dynamic photos and videos.
The Nikon D850 is now official after quite a bit of anticipation following a development announcement just a few short weeks ago. Thankfully, Nikon has not disappointed and the new D850 houses some of the best specifications and features of any modern camera. Check out the full info after the break.

The spec list on the Panasonic GH5 is absolutely ridiculous with 4k @ 60P, 1080p @ 180fps, 10 bit, unlimited recording, and so much more. It brings professional video features to a compact mirrorless camera that takes up less bag space than your average DSLR. But despite it's unassuming looks, it packs an unbeatable punch. So let’s go in-depth after some wedding filmmaking to see if the GH5 really is the ultimate video camera.

Canon has just announced a successor to the popular Canon 6D, a more consumer driven high end full frame DSLR. With a body that looks almost identical to the Canon 80D and a familiar feature set, Canon’s new highlight feature is the new full frame 26MP sensor that is hopefully an improvement from current sensor technology. The 6D Mark II does benefit from Canon’s newest Digic 7 processor and features such as digital image stabilization & Bluetooth first seen in the Canon T7i and 77D. Thankfully the 6D Mark II does inherit a few improvements from the higher end 5D Mark IV including dust and water resistance and gps.
The Canon 6D is currently up for preorder to begin shipping late July 2017 at a price of $1999
