It took me a while to wrap my head around how far we’ve come with action cameras. They’re smaller, tougher, and more usable than they’ve ever been… and prices incredibly low for what you get in the box. There are a number of Sony Action Cams on the market, but Sony’s HDR-S100VR POV HD Action Cam with Live View Remote is a perfect example: an amazingly capable device with a powerful accessory, coming in for less than half of what I paid for my first digital camera. The best part: it offers some of the best performance in an action cam on the market. Read on to find out more.

There’s a movement afoot just about everywhere to make things more accessible to everyone. That’s a great thing in a lot of cases… but when it comes to artisan tools it’s not. Making things hyper-accessible can mean making them less powerful, and it takes a brave manufacturer to say “no, we want to make something incredible for a small group of people.” That manufacturer is Fujifilm, and that camera is the Fujifilm X-T1.

Here are some of the most amazing things to come out of it!

Review: Sony Alpha A6000 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera

The box for the  Sony Alpha A6000 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera is deceptively small, just like the camera itself. I’ve been in the Sony Alpha family since the A350, and even my most recent purchase (the A35) is a hand-filling device. The A6000, on taking it out of the box, had me first asking “where’s the rest of it?”

 

I suppose I should be used to this by now: camera manufacturers are packing a hell of a lot of camera into a small packages. With that in mind I pulled the A6000 out of the box, sorted the accessories, and got to work on finding out what it’s like and who it’d be great for. Read on, true believers.

fs-tech-blog-canon-t5-compared-to-canon-t5i.jpg

The letter i has been an important distinction for many brands over the past few years; notably adding it to “Pod”, “Phone”, and “Pad” has been a recipe for success for a certain brand. Canon has had “i” added to their Tx line of cameras since the venerable T2i, and the T5i was the latest in this line-up in 2013. 

 

In early 2014 Canon announcing the upcoming release of a new camera in the Tx family: the T5. It was like the T5i - better in some feature categories, while the T5i was better in others. Suitably confused yet? Yeah, me too. That’s why we’re taking a look at these cameras today and deciphering who they’re for, because there’s an audience for both. Let’s get moving and find out which one is right for you, yeah?
