I Got to Test the New Canon EOS R5 for a Full Week Ahead of Release

I am a Canon Ambassador and I had the chance to test the new Canon EOS R5 (pre-production model) that we have all been anticipating for such a long time.

Testing the Most Expensive MacBook Pro Apple Makes

Microsoft Surface Book 3 Review: A Great Laptop, Flawed by Design

I like the Microsoft Surface Book 3. In fact, I like it a lot. The build quality is great, and the design is both useful and pretty much unique right now. But it's also flawed... critically flawed by the selfsame design that makes it a unique product, which is why I can't recommend it to most working photographers.

How Scratch-Proof is a Camera Sensor?

Photographer and YouTuber Arthur R recently received several comments from viewers about how he didn't use a body cap to protect his camera sensor from dust. In response, he decided to do some tests to find out how durable and scratch-proof sensors actually are.

Review: The New 13-Inch MacBook Pro is Surprisingly Powerful

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is a confusing proposition from Apple. We called it a "half update" in our first impressions, and I stand by that. But it's also an important update that gives photographers and video editors a lot more performance bang for their buck—as long as they're willing to spend $1,800 or more. Let's dive in.

LA wedding photographer and educator Michael Anthony has released a detailed side-by-side comparison of the recently announced Godox AD300 Pro (Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro) and the much more expensive Profoto B10.

After teasing an “in development” announcement late last year, Tamron’s all new 70-180mm f/2.8 for Sony E-mount is finally about to hit store shelves. With the release of this lens, Tamron will complete their “holy trinity” for Sony mirrorless.

Do Professional Photographers Need a Mac Pro? No… Not Really

YouTuber Tyler Stalman recently got his hands on a review unit of both the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR, and while many tech YouTubers have reviewed these extreme (and extremely expensive) Apple products, he's the first we've seen who's evaluated them from the perspective of a professional photographer.

Deep Fusion Demo: Trying Out Apple’s Computational Photography Tech

Apple has released iOS 13.2, debuting the 'Deep Fusion' computational photography tech that it showed off during the iPhone 11 keynote, and we decided to take it for a quick spin to see what all the fuss is about. Spoiler Alert: If you care about photography and own an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max, update your phone ASAP.

The Medium Format Experience: High ISO and the Milky Way

For several years I had believed that shooting a medium format camera at high ISO would yield terrible results. Most likely there would be no point in trying, I thought. However, a few days ago I nevertheless brought the Pentax 645Z and the Pentax 25mm f/4 out into the darkness where the zoombies reign — in my imagination anyway.

Will It Blend? Torture Testing Sony’s TOUGH SD Cards

Sony's TOUGH SD cards are extremely popular among photographers. But just how tough are they? Photographer and writer Steve Huff decided to put the latest iteration of these TOUGH cards through the ultimate battery of tests: freezer, washer, dryer, pool, and... just for fun... blender.

Three Months with the Panasonic S1R

Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake of DPReviewTV recently took the new Nikon Eye Autofocus firmware for a spin to see how it performs in the real world.
