The pocketable Sony RX100 has widely been touted as one of the best compact cameras around, so there is much to be excited about with its upgrade, the equally compact RX100 II. Tim Coleman investigates what the new model has to offer in his full review.
Superzoom compacts have become incredibly sophisticated over the last few compact generations, to the point where their expansive focal ranges are just one of a number of headline features. We see how the Panasonic TZ40, Sony HX50, Nikon S9500 and Canon SX280 HS stack up against each other.
If the Fuji X10 was a flawed genius, the X20 is a lot more genius than flaw. The introduction of the X10 was a brilliant move by Fujifilm and the X20 is proof that the company looked at photographers’ reactions to it and took them on board.
For my mind, Fujifilm is once again raising the bar with this camera. Not only is it technically well grounded, but it produces amazing images. And you know what? It’s fun to use. It’s a feel-good camera.
At Wex we do things properly. We didn’t test these cameras in some grey office block. No, we took them all canyoning in the Lake District to try them out properly in the sort of environment that they’re designed for. So seven tough testers for seven tough cameras and four hours of freezing cold canyonography with our specialist guide…
The GH3 isn’t small, at all. It is built to be handled, held and used. It’s for people who want a bigger, more stable platform, especially for larger lenses and adds a bucket load of video on top. This flagship is Pro grade and no nonsense pushing Lumix higher up the market than ever before.
The genius of the X10 is the mechanical zoom. With electronically-controlled zoom, the lens tends to lurch about from one focal length to another, where the X10 glides smoothly. The lens is impressive with its f2 aperture, even if that’s not its optimum setting. The fact it holds to f2.8 as you zoom to the telephoto end is startlingly good in a camera of this class.
With a camera as highly specified as the P7700 it is easy to forget about the most important aspect of all, image quality. To say I was impressed is an understatement, the P7700 produces wonderful files with beautifully contrasted images and sharpness that I would see no problem printing and blowing up to an A3 size print.
The evolution of the mirrorless camera has driven a coach and horses through a market which was getting too comfortable and complacent. Before they arrived compacts were stagnating and SLRs getting ever larger. Now the middle ground is where some of the fastest, fiercest development is taking place and new ideas are coming from thick and fast.
The X100 was important and enough to make me change the way I work. The X-Pro1 on the other hand is a complete game changer for me. Completely. Again, like its little sister, the X-Pro1 is not without its own little issues. However, as a documentary wedding photographer, it fits in perfectly with my style of shooting and is also amazing at just about any type of photography from landscape to portraits.
