Leica’s luxurious $2300 T camera (Typ 701) reviewed

Good cameras aren’t cheap, and better cameras carry heavier price tags than good cameras, so what does a new Leica system aimed at the mirror-less market cost, and is it worth its weight in gold?

Long distances come into view as Canon engages new super-zooms

You can never be totally prepared on a holiday with a digital camera, and unless you feel like bringing with lots of lenses, it can be hard to know what to take with you, and that’s where super-zooms come in.

SelfieBot more than just a joke as New Zealand’s Dronies take off

They say that life imitates art, and proving that is a new technological trend happening in New Zealand reminiscent of an April Fools joke from earlier in the year, with a flying drone now able to take pictures of you as you go about your ski trip.

Zoom, zoom: Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom 10x optical camera phone reviewed

Cameras and phones have well and truly merged by now, but has the phone really replaced the camera? Not yet, as far as Samsung is concerned, but that could change with its latest release, the K Zoom, which integrates a 10x optical zoom 20 megapixel camera with — you guessed it — a phone.

Panasonic first with a compact capable of capturing 4K UHD

The next big thing in TVs is the world of Ultra HD, and while the TVs are gradually becoming larger in number for you to choose from, the content is not, with virtually nothing ready to play back in 4K’s native resolution. With a new product, Panasonic hopes to help provide a fix.

Samsung’s K Zoom camera phone hits Australia

Smartphone cameras are improving, but almost all of them lack optical zoom, one of the things you need if you want to get close. A new Samsung phone could fix this, however, bundling 10x optical into something that has more in common with a phone than a camera.

Samsung shrinks its mirrorless for pockets, and not just those with big pockets

Mirrorless cameras were supposed to herald the end of carrying big cameras, but it hasn’t made as much of an impact as many thought, with still bulky sizes for interchangeable lens cameras. Samsung wants to do something about this, though, unveiling a compact mirrorless with an even more compact mount.
