Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 review

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 - An Advanced Compact for the Casual Shooter

REVIEW  /  30 Jul 2013

The LF1 is Panasonic's newest advanced compact and has similarities to its LX7 counterpart. While the sensor inside the LF1 is the same size and type as that of the LX7, the LF1 sports a higher resolution. Other differences include a longer but slightly slower lens and an electronic viewfinder (EVF) - a rarity on small cameras. Along with a lower price, are these differences enough to make the LF1 stand out?

Nikon D7100 review

Nikon D7100 - Nikon's APS-C Prince

REVIEW  /  05 Jul 2013

Coming two years after the Nikon D7000, the D7100 is quite the beast on paper. It's the latest in Nikon's APS-C DSLR cameras to get a high-resolution 24MP sensor, and the first to come without an optical low-pass filter, which promises to increase the amount of detail captured in its images.
