Leica just launched the Leica Q2, a 47.3MP compact camera that's the successor to the popular full-frame Leica Q from 2015. The Leica Q2, which like its predecessor has an attached (i.e. non-interchangeable) prime lens, features a sturdy splash/dustproof construction, 4K video, an all-new OLED viewfinder and an improved Maestro image signal processor that has a base of ISO 50.The Leica Q2's slick, sharp Summilux 28mm f/1.7 prime lens is the same as on the previous model and so is the shape of the camera, but many other features big and small have been improved. Here’s the rundow..
Written by Editorial Team on February 7, 2018Photography students and enthusiasts must educate themselves with many technical terms such as aperture, shutter speed, focus and exposure.You’ve probably read enough about that elsewhere, so how about a few photography effects?1. BokehBokeh refers to the aesthetic quality of blur, the out of focus area of the image. It’s how the light renders lighted areas that are out of focus. The difference in lens aberrations and aperture shape causes the area to blur, creating the look that’s aesthetically pleasing. Many photographers delib..
Yes, we’re posting our annual favorite cameras and lenses awards of 2018 with only a day left in January 2019, but that just means picking the best photo gear of last year was harder than usual. And it was, especially with the raft of exciting new full frame mirrorless cameras that hit the market in the second half of 2018.Two of those new mirrorless full framers made our top 10 – at #1 and #2, respectively – and it set the tone for the entire list which, for the first time ever, included just one DSLR and no compact cameras in the top 10. Are DSLRs really going the way of the Dodo bird a..

M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20Also on show was a non-built-in teleconverter: the MC-20, which will be available in Summer 2019. This doubles the focal length of a lens it's attached to, but at the cost of 2 stops of light. The MC-20 can be used with 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO as well as the existing M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO and M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO.Combined with the forthcoming zoom and its internal teleconverter, we believe you'd get a 375-1000mm F11 lens (equivalent to a 750-2000mm F22 lens on full frame). Though the combination seems rather specialist...

Mavica (Magnetic Video Camera) was a brand of Sony cameras which used removable disks as the main recording medium. In August 1981, Sony unveiled a prototype of the Sony Mavica as the world's first electronic still camera.As with all Mavica cameras until the early 1990s (including later models sold commercially) this first model was not digital. Its CCD sensor produced an analog video signal in the NTSC format at a resolution of 570 × 490 pixels. Mavipak 2.0" disks (later adopted industry-wide as the Video Floppy and labelled "VF") were used to..
This camera has a 35mm to 105mm zoom lens, that is quite bright for a camera of this type (f1:4 at 35mm and f1:6.7 at 105mm). It is fully automatic: exposure between 1s and 1/500th, automatic flash and automatic… zoom! This unusual automatic zoom mode is called APZ(Advanced Power Zoom): an infra-red sensor located below the finder tries to fill the frame to the best, by modifying the focal length! The APZ mode is of course optional, the user can choose not to use it.On top of this very special APZ system, the camera has quite a lot of features for an early 1990s compact camera: electroni..
The Canon’s Sure Shot AF-7s (aka Sure shot Owl PF or Prima AF-9S) was launched at the turn of the century. It is essentially like a restyled version of the 1997 Sure Shot AF-7/Sure Shot Owl and carried on the characteristic large viewfinder (hence sold under the Owl name in the US). Mines arrived with a case and batteries (thankfully not corroded)The camera is pretty typical non zoom AF compact from the turn of the century. It has a plastic body with glass lens and is a bit bulky. It’s a bit like an early IXUS series APS camera on steroids.The camera is pretty simple in controls a ..
