Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED

Nikon’s venerable 12-24mm ultrawide zoom has the benefit of a reasonably fast f/4 aperture that remains constant throughout the zoom range. By contrast, the newer 10-24mm lens has a variable f/3.5-4.5 maximum aperture but, crucially, it extends the zoom range where it matters most: at the wide-angle end, effectively boosting it to an equivalent 15mm  Full Article…

Sony Alpha A390

With mirrorless hybrid cameras grabbing all the limelight, the D-SLR market’s been a bit quiet of late. Just the right time, then, for Sony to pounce with two new cameras.

Manfrotto 055XB with 804 head

The Manfrotto 055XB doesn’t have the rotating column which can be found on the 190XPROB. If you want this, you’ll have to pay £15 more for the 055XPROB. This version is cheaper and lighter than the ‘rotating’ version, which could be important because this is a more substantial tripod, with thicker, longer legs that give  Full Article…

Canon Ixus 130

Canon’s Ixus range has been around since the photographic dark ages, and to say each addition carries with it high expectations is quite an understatement. However, the 14.1-megapixel Canon Ixus 130 has the hallmarks of one of the greats. An initially striking design, a consumer-friendly high megapixel count, and a 2.7-inch LCD on the back  Full Article…

Sony Alpha A850

A step down from Sony’s original A900 full-frame offering, the newer A850 is nevertheless almost identical in most areas, but with a significant price reduction, making it the cheapest full-frame camera on the market. Compared with the A900, it still boasts the same CMOS sensor, with a class-leading resolution of 24.6Mp and all of the  Full Article…

National Geographic Expedition NGET1 with NGEH1 head

The NGET1 is actually ‘engineered’ by Manfrotto for National Geographic. It doesn’t take too much detective work to spot the similiarities between this tripod and Manfrotto’s 458B tripod and 468MG hydrostatic ball head. Interesting design Some leg-warmers and articulated ‘cup’ feet have been added, along with protective rubber bellows around the shaft of the head.  Full Article…

Panasonic Lumix LX5

The Panasonic Lumix LX5 is a refresh of the popular Lumix LX3, a well-regarded power compact that’s also caught on as a D-SLR replacement. The first thing you notice about the Lumix DMC-LX5 is that it feels more compact and pocketable at 110 x 66 x 43cm than the LX3, and the metal body is  Full Article…

Samsung WB600

At first glance, the 12 megapixel Samsung WB600 doesn’t look like a camera that particularly stands out from the crowd of mid-range compacts. It’s built from plastic rather than a more exotic magnesium alloy, it isn’t festooned with manual dials, and it isn’t till you turn it on and start using the lens that you  Full Article…

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6

Like any concept, the Four Thirds imaging system has its pros and cons. On the plus side, camera bodies and lenses tend to be very compact, but then the four/thirds aspect ratio that’s in keeping with pre-widescreen viewing screens now looks dated. The 2x times crop factor plays into your hands at the telephoto end  Full Article…
