DxOMark Mobile Report on HTC One M9 22 May 2015 at 3:00pm

DxOMark Mobile has published their report on the HTC One M9, HTC's latest top-end smartphone. The new model is a touch smaller and thinner than its predecessor, the One M8, but under the hood HTC upgrades the 4MP "ultrapixel" 1/3" BSI sensor of the predecessor to a larger, higher resolution 20MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor. The F2.2 lens provides no optical image stabilization, but the M9 is the first One model capable of recording 4K video. Read our report on DxOMark's findings


Canon EOS Rebel T6s/T6i First Impressions updated with shooting experience 22 May 2015 at 2:23pm

We'd expect image quality from Canon's EOS Rebel T6s and T6i (760D and 750D) to be very similar, and so far the 24.2MP APS-C DSLRs haven't surprised us in our studio tests. The real differences between these two models is in the user experience, as the T6s provides advanced touches like a top-panel LCD and rear quick control dial for easier access to exposure settings. We delve into what it's like using each of these cameras in our shooting experience. Read more

Fujifilm FinePix S1 real-world sample gallery posted 21 May 2015 at 12:39pm

At 50X, the Fujifilm FinePix S1 may not have the longest lens in its class, but it is the only superzoom that's weather-sealed and one of the very few with Raw support. Naturally, this means that we did some Raw conversions and shot in in the rain, and you can see the results in our samples gallery.

US luxury camera bag brand Ona has announced a new black version of its Berlin ll messenger-style bag. Designed especially for the Leica M system, the Berlin was originally a limited edition model created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Leica, but the Berlin ll went on general release beyond Leica stores.

Oppo launches R7 and R7 Plus 20 May 2015 at 12:53pm

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has today launched its new duo of flagship phones, the R7 and R7 Plus. The R7 features a 5" 1080p screen, while a 6" screen with the same resolution places the Plus model firmly into phablet territory. In the camera department both smartphones combine a 13MP sensor with an F2.2 lens but the R7 Plus chip is, like the Huawei P8, of the RGBW variant and supported by laser-AF and a dual-LED flash. Read more

The Canon EOS Rebel T6s and T6i (760D and 750D) have been in our hands long enough to put together a couple of real-world sample galleries, and now we've added the cameras to our studio test scene comparison tool. The new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that these cameras share represents a step forward for Canon's Rebel lineup, which had been using an 18MP chip since the T2i. Read more

The Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR is a weather-sealed prime, equivalent to a 24mm field of view on Fujifiilm's X-mount cameras. With a close focus distance of just 0.15m/6in. and a fast F1.4 aperture, this lens is super versatile. In our sample testing we found it to be sharp, and to offer pleasing bokeh.
