Fujifilm X-H1 Review

“The 24MP sensor is able to capture similar levels of monochrome detail to a 24MP Bayer sensor. As intended, the sensor’s less frequently repeating color pattern protects it from the aliasing that we see in Bayer sensor cameras without anti-aliasing filters, when shooting contrasty, fine detail with a sharp lens. However, the slight glitching in fine, color detail suggests you’re paying a slight cost in terms of capturing fine color detail by choosing X-Trans. The precise rendering of these differences will depend on your Raw converter.”





Sigma 500mm f4 DG OS HSM Sports Review

‘In many situations, the Sigma 500mm f4 DG OS HSM Sports is very fast. The only other major exceptions where it became a pain were when ducks and swans were swimming about in the water, and when trying to focus on a puma while it was behind glass. But sometimes you need to expect that. There are surely times in real life where animals won’t just sit there and wait for you to take their photos. So you’ll need to be quick. Focus limiters and being able to manually touch up the focusing really helps here.”


Fujifilm XE3 Review

“he Fujifilm XE3 is a very satisfying mid-range mirrorless camera for anyone entering the World of interchangeable lens photography. It feels responsive, handles well, and delivers great-looking 24 Megapixel photos and 4k video with minimal effort. It features a built-in viewfinder, touchscreen with clever gesture controls, an AF joystick for those who prefer a more conventional touch, and Bluetooth to aid with Wifi connections to your phone. Downsides? The screen doesn’t tilt, there’s no built-in stabilisation, no built-in flash (although a slide-on accessory is supplied), the microphone input is a non-standard 2.5mm, and the phone app could do with some bug fixes. But even with these frustrations, the XE3 remains a highly compelling camera to shoot with and it’s revealing one of its biggest rivals is Fujifilm’s own XT20. Compare these closely, along with Sony’s A6300 (for better action), Panasonic’s Lumix GX80 / GX85 (for better video), and the Olympus OMD EM10 Mark III (for built-in stabilisation). All are great choices at this price point”





Sony a7R Mark III review

For starters, you get an AF joystick for placing your AF area, a dedicated AF-ON button, a chunkier rear dial and a deeper grip. Menus have gotten a refresh, and while they’re still complex, they’re far easier to navigate than before. The a7R III is almost infinitely customizable, whether you’re looking for button assignments or memory banks that hold almost a complete set of camera options. This means that it takes a long time to get the camera set up to how you truly like it, but it is entirely worth it, and allows the a7R III to respond more quickly to changing situations than many mirrorless rivals.”





Sony FE 24-105mm f4G OSS Review

“The Sony FE 24-105mm f4G OSS is a general-purpose lightweight zoom for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras upon which it’ll take you from wide-angle to short telephoto. The lens sports a constant f4 focal ratio and can deliver reasonably blurred backgrounds and attractive rendering when shot wide-open at 105mm, especially at portrait distances or approaching the minimum focusing of 38cm. There’s optical stabilisation to iron-out wobbles on older bodies, or further enhance those with sensor-shift, while weather-sealing keeps it protected against the elements”

‘shot some content with the C200, and focused purely on the Cinema Raw Light codec, improved ergonomics and autofocus.

We had a chance to test the camera in some different scenarios to understand the limitations and optimum settings, this is all non-scientific.”


Sekonic L-858 D Review

“The meter features a 2.7 inch touch screen that allows you to more quickly select and/or change your settings without having to use buttons to navigate through the menus. This may not seem as big of a deal but any piece of gear I add to my kit I need to be able to be FAST. The future of shooting is smaller, lighter and faster. If it doesn’t fit those requirements, then I am less likely to be able to use it. This unit passes that with flying colors.”
