#1: Review: Carl Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 (Sony)

Jamiya Wilson was recently handed the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 and thoroughly enjoyed his time shooting with it. But with so many options available (and more on the horizon) for compact system cameras, is it worth it? And more importantly, does it live up to the Zeiss name?

#2: Lens Comparison: Canon 35mm f2 IS vs Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG vs Canon 35mm f1.4 L

When looking for a lens to buy, there are often multiple options. Lens comparisons are essential to delimit which option is the right one for you. In this article we compare three 35mm options from Canon and Sigma.

#3: Review: Sigma DP3 Merrill

The DP3 is meant to complement the DP1 and DP2 Merrill; and by itself it is a little bit out of place of the conventional thought of a high end point and shoot user. Then who is it for?

#4: First Impressions: Canon 28mm f2.8 IS (Canon EF)

Canon’s release of the 28mm f2.8 IS kind of had many photographers scratching their heads. For what good reason would a company put IS in such a wide focal length?

#5: Reader Letter: A Camera for My Model Daughter

Today I received a message via 500px that made me chuckle and also think to myself just how confused many consumers are. This letter came from a woman whose daughter is travelling around and who became very confused with what camera to get.

#6: Have a Canon 50D? Then You’ve Got a Cinema Camera

When the Canon 50D was released, it didn’t make such a huge splash as its predecessor the 40D did. But what people didn’t know was that apparently, there is a video mode built into the camera but locked out via firmware.

Adobe’s recent announcement that Photoshop will henceforth only be available upon subscription to their Creative Cloud, has taken the photographic community by storm. Adobe now released an official statement covering some of the complaints.

#8: Review: Samsung Galaxy S4 (Sprint)

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a phone that is extremely capable of doing so much more than most people would ever really expect from a phone. Packed with loads of features, these goodies also include some excellent technology that works in conjunction with the phone’s camera.

#9: Review: SLR Magic 35mm T1.4 (Micro Four Thirds)

The SLR Magic 35mm T1.4 is one bang-for-your-buck lens. At a price point of US-$ 349, you can’t really go wrong. It offers a lot of speed, good sharpness and beautiful bokeh, and renders a normal focal length on APS-C.
