One of the things that we often get asked is what the best camera is for each system if you just want the most bang for your buck. So what determines this? For the most part, it has to do with the feature set since not a single camera these days can take a bad picture. However, that also needs to be weighed accordingly with the price.

We’ve gone through our reviews to find which camera gives you the most bang for your buck.

Vincent Palma Photography-6

All images by Vincent Palma. Used with permission.

When the girlfriend of photographer Vincent Palma contacted us pitching his special photo project, we were very surprised by the work. Vince was born in Stockholm, Sweden to Spanish parents and is a self-trained photographer. His goal is to one day work as a photographer and gallery owner in Japan. But what attracted us to much to him is his Jack the Ripper photo project–which wouldn’t have had its start unless Vince got his hands on his Dad’s film camera.

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Lensbaby Velvet 55mm f1.6 product images (1 of 6)ISO 4001-140 sec at f - 2.0

Lensbaby’s Velvet 56mm f1.6 is a pretty new lens, and one that many of us didn’t necessarily expect. In the past couple of years, the company has been working on alternative lenses for various systems, and the first sample images look really cool in a lo-fi type of way. Indeed, Lensbaby has always been about seeing the world in a new way, and their newest lenses seem to make you do that, just in a more vintage style.

That’s not to say that these lenses have plastic optics at all, but if you’re a film lover then the Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f1.6 lens will give you quite a treat.

Many modern flashes are designed around the hot shoe of your camera; and while that isn’t necessarily a problem, a new Kickstarter wants to change that. They’re called radioSTROBE, and it’s a radio flash system similar to the Profoto AIR system that is very much all about radio connectivity first.

Their first product is called the lynqR-1 and the flash has an internal battery pack and doesn’t use AA batteries. To trigger it, you use the lynqT-1 remote that sides into the hot shoe of your camera. It’s currently available for Canon and Nikon DSLRs and can allow for full manual, TTL, high speed sync and second curtain flash usage. Unfortunately, there is no word on Sony, Fujifilm or Olympus availability yet.

The downside: According to the Kickstarter the flash seems weaker than the closest Nikon and Canon competitors. Tech specs are after the jump along with the demo video.
