Very Informative Side-by-Side Comparison of Different Light Modifiers

A few weeks ago, we shared a video by photographer Karl Taylor that gave you a behind the scenes look at what a day-long fashion shoot in his studio was like. And even though a few of our readers poked fun at the video’s obvious product placement, a lot of people learned a thing or two and came back with followup questions regarding the light modifiers that Taylor was using throughout the day.

Fortunately for us, Taylor was listening, and has produced this very informative follow-up video in which he discusses the differences between his go-to modifiers, complete with side-by-side comparisons. Read more…

The Nikon Df Takes DxOMark’s Low-Light Crown, Outperforms the D4

It seems the Nikon engineers had some tricks up their sleeves when they put the D4 sensor inside the new Nikon Df, because while the sensor earned identical scores to the D4 in almost every category when DxOMark put it through its paces, the Df actually BEAT the D4 in the “low-light ISO” category.

But more than that, it beat EVERYBODY in that category, narrowly edging out the previous champion D3s to claim the number one low-light spot among DxOMark’s rankings. Read more…

Video: Comparing Canon’s USM and STM Lenses Using the 70D’s Dual Pixel AF

As Canon has begun focusing more adamantly on making its DSLRs capable video capture machines, the company has had to adjust its glass to match. The new Dual Pixel AF on the 70D is a great improvement (check out these videos if you doubt that) but if you’re planning on shooting video using the autofocus, you’ll probably get to the point where you have to choose between buying a USM lens and an STM lens.

When that time comes, the video above by YouTube user marconilanna should make that choice a little easier by showing you the differences — in both noise and speed — between one of Canon’s STM lenses and a few older USMs. Read more…

How Far We’ve Come: Comparing the ISO Capabilities of Nikon’s D70 and D600

After Toronto-based artist Kyle Clements put together his popular D600 sensor dust time-lapse, he began receiving many questions about how his new camera stacked up against the D70 he used up until that point.

Rather than continue to answer questions individually, he’s decided to start putting together YouTube videos for the most popular ones, starting with the ISO comparison above. Read more…

Humorous Samsung Video Takes on the Perception that Bigger Cameras are Better

When it comes to cameras, is bigger always better? Samsung didn’t try to answer that question, but the company did shoot a funny video that shows pretty clearly that the general public seems to think the answer is “yes,” even if there’s no difference at all. Read more…

x-m1compare

Fujifilm’s upcoming “entry-level” X-M1 X Series mirrorless camera was outed today after photographs of the camera were leaked onto the Web. We now know what the camera will look like, but many of the camera’s specs and features are still unknown. The size and weight of the camera haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s actually possible to determine the relative size of the camera to other X Series mirrorless cameras using just the leaked photos.

Canon’s T5i Takes On Nikon’s D5200 in a Cringe-Worthy Drop Test

It’s one of a photographer’s worst fears: dropping your DSLR. Especially for the amateur who may not have a backup, knowing that your camera can withstand a beating has led to some interesting videos in the past.

But while we appreciate DigitalRev’s “paint it pink and light it on fire” approach, protection plan company SquareTrade‘s more scientific test is probably more useful (if less entertaining). In the video above, SquareTrade enlists the help of pro photographer and B&H employee Neil Gershman to drop test Canon’s T5i and Nikon’s D5200. Read more…

A Comparison of Burst Mode Speeds and Shutter Sounds of Canon DSLRs

If you want to get a taste of what these shutter speeds sound like on the actual cameras, check out the comparison video above by YouTube user dochero2005.
