Lens Camera review

Welcome to the 469th Digital Photography Review newsletter.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview, video and low-light samples

As you may be aware, Canon has unveiled its latest full-frame DSLR: the EOS 5D Mark III. While a 22MP sensor and 1080p30 video shooting may not sound like a radical departure from the Mark II, the latest model makes up for the rather familiar headline specs with a host of features borrowed from the EOS-1D X. The most obvious of these are the 61-point autofocus system and more sophisticated video compression options, but there's still more if you dig around under the surface. That's exactly what we've done in our hands-on preview and video. We've also published a range of images shot under low, challenging lighting at all the camera's ISO settings, which we've included in the preview.

Samsung NX200 Review

Back in the realms of cameras you can actually buy, we've reviewed the Samsung NX200; its 20.3MP third-generation mirrorless camera. While Sony has attracted a lot of attention with its increasingly capable NEX cameras and the Micro Four Thirds coalition have established a comprehensive lens line-up, Samsung has quietly been upgrading and expanding its NX series. Central to this is the NX200 - with its new sensor, high-quality metal build and seven frame-per-second continuous shooting, it represents a considerable step forward for the range. We've spent the last few weeks living and shooting with the NX200 and have published our full review. Does it have what it takes to compete in the increasingly competitive mirrorless sector?

Lytro Light Field Camera Review

The Lytro Light Field Camera caused a lot of excitement when the idea of refocusable images was publicised last summer. Now the Silicon Valley startup has shipped its first camera, the time has come for us to review it. It's a camera that's almost as unconventional as the concept on which it's based. Click here to find out what we thought of it.

Canon ELPH 510 HS Quick Review

The Canon ELPH 510 HS seemed like the perfect candidate to test out our new Quick Review format that should allow us to publish much more regular compact camera reviews. It's a 12MP, 12X zoom compact based around a back-lit CMOS sensor and offering a 28-336mm image stabilized lens. Click here to read all about it.
