The GH4 is an awesome camera by itself but adding a Metabones speedbooster with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens turns the GH4 into a full frame equivalent of a f2.8 zoom offering shallow depth of field as well as great low light performance from this smaller sensor camera. Take a look to see how it is done and if it is worth it.
Purchase the Metabones:
Nikon G to Micro 43
Canon EF to Micro 43
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.
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. We all know by now that nothing beats the A7s in low light and the 4k in camera shooting of the GH4 definitely has it’s advantages. 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.

Head past the break as we compare the new Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art with the Canon 50mm f1.2L and Canon 50mm f1.4. We have a full sharpness test along with the full resolution images for you to download and compare yourself.
The big question is if Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS can really match the sharpness of a prime with a 2.8 zoom lens and offer fast enough AF with strong enough build quality to keep up with the best from Canon & Nikon, so lets find out.
The Sony A7 brings an awesome full frame sensor to the mirrorless market with a more reasonable price attached. While not cheap, it certainly is the less expensive of other full frame cameras on the market. With a new retro looking design, 3 custom buttons and a ton of manual and setting options, the Sony A7 is designed for enthusiasts and above. But how does that full frame sensor and tons of control affect your images? Check out the video for the details.
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.
The Nikon D5300 rocks a 24MP sensor, no AA filter, Wifi, GPS, 5fps shooting, and more. But how do those specs work out in real life images and does Nikon's famous dynamic range pan out in this consumer DSLR? Head past the break as we take the D5300 and shoot some awesome exotic cars.
We take the Canon 70D and put it through its paces checking out the build quality, ergonomics, dynamic range, low light results, video quality, and the brand new live AF system. We also have the full resolution RAW & JPEG files available after the break.
