On paper, it’s hard to argue with the NX1. With a 28MP APS-C sensor, 15fps, 4k video, and 205 AF points, it really looks like a camera begging for attention. But Samsung is new to this market segment so there is plenty of room for skepticism. So for the past month I have been putting this camera to the test to see if it can really deliver on what I would call a stunning spec sheet for the asking price of $1500.

Both the A7s and 5D are a combination of photography and video cameras, but Sony definitively launched the A7s to appeal more to video while the 5D is still largely a photographer's camera. So in one sense it’s a bit unfair to go with this comparison because the 5D Mark III is a phenomenal still camera and is definitely the camera I’ll take for my wedding photography jobs, that said, there are quite a few videographers using the 5D Mark III for video, including me and so this comparison is for us.
Taking the NX1 and a new NX to Canon adapter was not quite the perfect experience I was hoping for. Check out the issues that came up as well the details on the adapter. The adapter itself is available for sale at Amazon if you would like to pick one up. Check out the details past the break
Two brand new video cameras with different strengths going head to head is always a ton of fun. Not quite as fun as having to make the decision of which one of these cameras to purchase.

So which one of these cameras should take its place in your camera bag, let’s find out in this review.

The Sony A7s brings the awesome capabilities of the original A7 and combines them with a new 12mp sensor making it a low light king, a ton of video features such as zebras and peaking, and records it all internally at up to 60fps @ 1080p internally or 4k and 30fps using an external recorder through the HDMI port. But is that enough to keep it alive as the competition increases in this video segment? Check out the full review after the break.

Can a $400 camera take as good a picture as a $4000 pro shooter? Do you really need to be investing in extremely high end gear to get top end image quality? And do you really need the weight, size, and risk of a pro camera to deliver uncompromising results? We answer those questions by taking the $4000 Canon 5D Mark III and the $400 Canon EOS M to shoot some $400,000 cars.
At last the 7D Mark II is here after years of waiting. So lets take a look at some of the new features & abilities and how they might help you. As an owner of the original 7D as well as the 70D and 5D Mark III, the new 7D Mark II brings many of the features of these other cameras to a new design. This could very well be the best camera available for wildlife and sports photographers.
