Given the moribund DSLR market, Ricoh wasn't about to mess around with the follow-up to its popular Pentax flagship, the K-3. Sure enough, the K-3 II retains the weather-proof body, fast 8.3 fps shooting speed and high-quality 24.4-megapixel APS-C-sized sensor of the last model, while getting some...

Now, Nikon is introducing the D7200, a successor to the relatively popular D7100, which was introduced back in 2013. The D7200 is the la...

Despite the rise of mirrorless cameras, Canon has been relatively cautious updating its Rebel DSLR line. The last big upgrade was the T5i from two years ago, and even that was considered more of a refresh than a revamp. Well, the series is finally getting an overhaul -- and in some cases, it might...

Enter the 5Ds and 5Ds R, each packing a massive 50.6-megapixel full-frame sensor -- which, at first glance, is clearly the specification that stands out the most.

It's always cool learning how stuff works. Case in point: cameras. More specifically, digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) pictograph boxes.

After a successful first run in New York City earlier this year, Samsung is now taking its free camera-swap program to the West Coast.

The wait is over. Canon's long-anticipated EOS 7D Mark II is here, shipping in November for $1,799, without a lens. With a price tag that high, you'd think it'd be safe to assume that the company's consumer flagship sports a full-frame sensor. It does not. It does, however, represent an enormous s...

I first cut my teeth on a Nikon D40, but I've spent the past few years picking the up basics of photography with a handful of Canon SLRs. I'm not great by any stretch, but I've got just enough experience under my belt that I'm itching to trade in my more basic gear for something with a bit more oomp...
