The following is a review of the Sigma 100-400mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens which was released in February of 2017 as part of Sigma’s affordable “Contemporary” lens lineup. The introduction of the Sigma 100-400mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C lens is a logical one for the company as…

Nikon Z6 Review

The Nikon Z6 was announced in August of 2018 alongside the higher resolution Z7. Both Z-series cameras marked the company’s entry into the full-frame mirrorless market, a category of camera that many Nikon shooters had anticipated anxiously for years. But it was always a question of “when,” not “if” Nikon…

DJI Mavic 2 Pro Review

In this review of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, we will take a closer look at how the drone performs for both aerial photography and videography. After testing out the Mavic Air last year, I realized just how useful compact drones have become for many creatives out there. Being able…

Nikon Z 24-70mm f/4 S Review

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S was released together with the 35mm f/1.8 S and 50mm f/1.8 S as one of the first Z-series Nikon lenses. To see exactly how the lens measures up, we tested four different samples of the 24-70mm f/4. After all, this is one of…

BenQ SW271 Monitor Review

Earlier last year I had a chance to test the BenQ SW320 monitor, which turned out to be a solid choice for my photography needs. I was able to calibrate the display using both BenQ’s native Palette Master Element software and DisplayCAL, which provided me with great results at the…

Sony A7 III Review

Calling the A7 series ‘entry-level’ is a bit misleading, rather it is less specialized and seeks to appeal to a broader range of photographers at an accessible price point. It doesn’t offer the same high resolution as the A7R series, the same low-light and video-centric features of the A7S series…

Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS Review

A traditional weakness of Sony’s FE lens lineup has been the number of options available at the telephoto end of the range. The issue has been somewhat rectified in recent years with the release of the Sony FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS, Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS and Sony…

Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Review

Announced alongside the Sony Alpha A7RIII mirrorless camera body last year, the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS is a significant addition to Sony’s standard zoom lens lineup for their FE mount. Before its release, Sony users had a bit of a tricky choice when it came to selecting a…

Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens Review

Introduced alongside Sony’s first full-frame mirrorless cameras in 2013, the Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA lens was the first fast-aperture, “standard” focal length prime lens available for the FE mount. The 50mm prime lens has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, with many new lenses in…

Sony RX100 VI Review

Announced in June 2018, the RX100 VI is the latest iteration of the Sony’s RX100 series of pocketable high-end compact cameras. The last few years haven’t been kind on point-and-shoot cameras with smartphone cameras now the tool of choice for most casual photographic situations. This has nearly eradicated the point-and-shoot…
