4k video and a 1" 20MP BSI sensor in your back pocket? I go hands on with the new Sony RX100 Mark IV to see if this $950 camera can deliver where it counts. Sony stuffed quite a bit into this (almost) pocket size camera without cutting corners, especially on the video side of things where you will find their new codec with 4k recording up to 100Mbps and even s-log2.

An LED Light Panel with a CRI over 95, Metal build, and a feature set that will satisfy the pros are tough to find. Finding one 22mm thick at under $500 was impossible, until now. But perfection on a budget is a heck of a goal so check out the Lightstorm LS 1/2w review for a full breakdown on how this light performed. Check out the full review after the break.

Fluid, Stable video for under $1400 is now possible. But it isn’t all perfect so let’s take a closer look at the DJI Ronin M with this Review to see if this Gimbal Stabilizer is the tool you need. While DJI has previous experience with the original Ronin, the Ronin M is very much a new product with several innovative design elements bringing light weight and cost savings to a growing market segment. But it's not quite a home run

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.
