2012 - The Year in Review

So this was 2012 and what has tech done? Another year over and a new one just about to begin. We look back on the year and analyze what went right and what went wrong in six major categories: Televisions, notebooks, tablets, cameras, mobile phones and gaming.

Canon EOS-1D X - Almost at the Apex

Canon EOS-1D X - Almost at the Apex

9.0

The 1D X represents the pinnacle of Canon's DSLR camera technology, and it mostly doesn't disappoint. It succeeds not just one, but two previous high-end cameras, and ups the game with faster frame-rates, higher ISO settings and improved handling. But there's something about its auto-focus you need to know.

Fujifilm X-E1 - A Concentrated Mirrorless Camera

Fujifilm X-E1 - A Concentrated Mirrorless Camera

8.0

Fujifilm has been on fire riding the retro/mirrorless combination. The X-E1 is a smaller, concentrated version of the X-Pro1, minus the optical viewfinder, bulk and price. It keeps the same unique X-Trans sensor, so performance should be the same - the question is, does it keep the bad of the X-Pro1 as well as the good?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 - Bridging the Gap

8.0

While there are many superzoom cameras with the ability to shoot at 20x optical zoom and further, the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 is the only superzoom capable of shooting at F/2.8 from its wide end to the telephoto end. But is this just a gimmicky feature or is the FZ200 a truly versatile camera? Read on to find out!

Canon EOS M - An Attempt to Keep Up With Competition

Canon EOS M - An Attempt to Keep Up With Competition

7.0

The EOS M is Canon's first mirrorless system camera, launched in a sea of competing mirrorless cameras. While the camera shines with the fit and finish of a world-class product from a world-class company, it lags behind in one critical element. We give you our assessment.

Lytro Camera - A Harbinger of the Light Field

The Lytro Light Field camera is an intriguing device and quite unlike any other camera that has come before, with some mind-bending tricks like the ability to re-focus a photo after it's been taken. Here's why we think it's important (even though we wouldn't buy one).
