We’ve featured the stunning work of Joe Capra before but the incredible panoramic timelapse of Los Angles that he shot over a two-year period could be his most spectacular video yet. Titled Pano L.A., the six-minute timelapse was captured entirely in true panoramic form using two synced Canon 5D Mark III DSLRs side by side.

We gave Canon’s flagship EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR our very first Shutterbug Top Clicks award for a very good reason. It’s an incredible photographic tool. Photographer David Dupuy decided to put it to the test himself for Shutterbug during a recent assignment in exotic Bali, Indonesia.

The new Canon EOS-1D X Mark II professional DSLR is the long-awaited follow-up to the EOS-1D X, which was launched in 2012 and quickly became one of the most popular cameras for action and sports photographers. In that respect, the 1D X Mark II has some very big shoes to fill. The new camera does add a lot of new features, including a new sensor, a new AF system, new video capabilities, and much more. The resolution of the 1D X Mark II’s new full-frame sensor has increased by 2MP to bring it to a respectable 20MP.

Remember when Paul Simon crooned, “Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away”? That classic film may have given you nice bright colors, but only on sunny days. In its early incarnations, Kodachrome’s film speed—its sensitivity—was 10, or slower than Homer Simpson.

The K-70 is Pentax’ newest SLR camera with a 24MP APS-C sized image sensor. It is a heavy camera (body: 1.5 lbs; 2.4 lbs including the kit lens), yet is quite compact. It has a splash-proof body and can be used in inclement weather conditions. The Pentax SMC DA F3.5-5.6 ED AL IF DC WR kit lens (used for the test) is also weatherproof.

The Nikon D500 is the “little sister” of the company’s flagship D5 professional DSLR system.
