Upgrading from the Canon Rebel: A Guide on Choosing Your Next Camera

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Canon Rebel SL1 product photos review (5 of 9)ISO 4001-40 sec at f - 4.5

One of the most popular dedicated cameras out there today has to be the Canon Rebel in all its iterations. They’re honestly fantastic cameras that are quite capable of producing professional level results. At a certain point in a photographer’s progression though, you’ll often find they’re a bit lacking and that you may want more. But at the same time, a photographer also has to make the decision on whether they want to stick with the same system or move to another.

To help you out, we’ve gone through our reviews index to figure out what’s best for you.

(UPDATED WITH SAMPLE PHOTOS) Phase One Has Two New Zoom Lenses From Schneider Kreuznach


All images by Antony Spencer. Used with permission.

If there is any company that’s been pumping out medium format lenses as of late, it’s Phase One. Today, they’re announcing two Schneider Kreuznach Blue Ring Zoom lenses for their XF camera system. With that said, they offer full frame 645 format coverage.

Both lenses sport a signature blue ring–kind of like how Canon has that big Red ring to signify that their product is an “L” lens.

Review: DSLRKIT 1.08x-1.60x Zoom Viewfinder Eyepiece Magnifier

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer DSLRKIT 1.08x-1.60x zoom viewfinder eyepiece magnifier product images (2 of 9)ISO 8001-125 sec

One of the biggest reasons for my moving away from DSLRs has to do with seeing through the diopter, but the DSLRKIT 1.08x-1.60x zoom viewfinder eyepiece magnifier has made me want to give them a genuine second try. If you’ve been a reader of the Phoblographer for many years, you’ll know that I’m legally blind and that my vision has been degrading over the years (both a blessing and a curse in some ways.) This is a big reason why I went to EVFs–because they’re capable of giving me a histogram, a high resolution image in a small area, and other smart previews like white balance and ambient light in the scene. Sony, Fujifilm and a number of others have done a fantastic job with EVFs though at times it’s easy to miss seeing exactly what’s in front of you and not a digital readout of it.

With medium format DSLRs it tends to be much easier; but when you work with full frame and APS-C DSLRs, it’s tougher overall to peer through that little viewfinder. But the DSLRKit Zoom Eyepiece is changing my opinions.

Review: WANDRD PRVKE Pack Camera Backpack

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer PRVKE pack product images (4 of 11)ISO 4001-40 sec at f - 2.8

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with backpacks designed for photographers: but the PRVKE Pack may be the only one that I actually like with the exception of the Langly Alpha Pro. When the Kickstarter launched, it was very aggressively marketed to be the only backpack that the travelling photographer needs. To that end, the PRVKE pack has loads of space, dividers, expandability, features that try to turn it into a tote bag, and other features that makes a whole lot of sense when used during actual travel. In fact, I’ve taken it on two press trip and many a shoot.

For the most part, WANDRD has created the perfect camera bag for photographers.
