Panasonic Lumix LX100 - Big sensor, big potential

REVIEW  /  27 Oct 2014

With Canon's PowerShot G7 X jumping on the 1-inch sensor bandwagon, and Sony dominating the digital compact scene with its Cyber-shot RX100 series, Panasonic throws a curve-ball with the Lumix LX100. Inside it is a Micro Four Thirds sensor. Can it overthrow the competition?

A day of shooting with the HTC RE camera

A day of shooting with the HTC RE camera

FEATURE  /  10 Oct 2014

HTC's RE camera is a big departure from the company's usual offerings. The tiny handheld 'lifestyle' camera is armed with a 16MP f/2.2 lens and a single shutter button for photos and videos. That's it, no viewfinder, no flash module, no options menu. It's the epitome of point and shoot. We took it out for a day in New York.

REVIEW  /  06 Oct 2014

The top of the compact camera segment has been dominated by Sony's CyberShot RX100 series for the last two years, but with Canon's new PowerShot G7 X that also boasts a compact frame with a 1-inch sensor and all that you expect out of Canon's prosumer series, including ease of use, it seems Sony has just met its toughest challenger yet.

You can't go wrong with the weather-resistant Fujifilm X-T1 mirrorless camera

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III review

Is the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III the best compact camera ever made?

REVIEW  /  08 Sep 2014

Sony is back with the third version of its RX100 prosumer compact, which is sensibly called the RX100 III. Except this time it’s two hundred dollars more expensive, at S$1,199. The company thinks that the faster lens and built-in electronic viewfinder justify the increase in price, but does it really add value to the entire package?

Nikon 1 J4 Mirrorless Camera - Small and Speedy

REVIEW  /  25 Jun 2014
