Most photographers are familiar with the popular narrative that shooting in Manual Mode delivers better, or at least more predictable, results. Unfortunately, many folks hesitate to turn their camera’s mode dial to “M” because they think Manual Mode is too complicated.

Fujifilm just introduced the Fujifilm X-S10, an entry-level mirrorless camera aimed at new photographers who might be interested in moving up from their smartphones to try a true digital camera. The Fujifilm X-S10 is the latest model in the company's X Series of cameras and features a 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 (APS-C) sensor, an X-Processor 4 chip and in-body image stabilization (IBIS) in a compact camera body.

Nike announced the 45.7MP Nikon Z7 II and 24.5MP Nikon Z6 II full-frame mirrorless cameras this morning. The two cameras, which are the follow-ups to the Z7 and Z6 from 2018, add some upgrades to the previous models including dual image processors, better autofocus (AF) capabilities and dual memory card slots, though they feature essentially the same image sensors as their predecessors.

Back in January I reviewed Nikon's tiny Z50 mirrorless camera, an APS-C sensor format model targeted at budget-conscious photographers or those buying their first interchangeable lens digital camera. And it performed so well I was actually sad to return it. But Nikon has been busy, and within a week the new full-frame 24.3MP Nikon Z5 arrived on my doorstep to test out.

2020 has been an interesting year to say the least. The one thing that has stayed steady in an unsteady world though has been the variety of quality cameras that have come out in the past 12 months. This year Shutterbug once again worked with EISA, the world's largest independent collection of magazines and websites focusing on consumer electronics, to select the ten best cameras of 2020.

Everyone seems to be jumping on the full frame bandwagon these days, and there’s a lot to consider if you’re planning on making the move. Do you want to stick with a DSLR or switch to mirrorless? Should you invest in a new camera or consider buying used?

Let’s say everything comes together just right: You have a great subject, the light is beautiful, and your composition and focus are impeccable. You just captured the money shot, right? Not so fast, because everything is for naught if you mess up the exposure.

Over the past few years there’s been a shift from DSLR cameras to mirrorless models among amateurs and pros alike. But as you’ll see in the video below, it’s still a bit premature to ring the death knell for the trusty DSLR—at least for certain applications.

Sony just announced the Alpha 7C, which the company is calling the world's smallest and lightest full frame camera body. The A7C is similar in design to Sony's compact A6000 series of mirrorless cameras, which use APS-C sensors, but boasts a 24.2MP full frame sensor and shooting features similar to the larger Sony A7 III full frame model.

Lots and lots of people are talking about Canon R5 heat cut-offs. The discussions range from technical discussions about heat generation, cooling methods, and firmware protocols to strident conspiracy theories.

When it comes to capturing timeless and transcendent photos, everyone knows that the person behind the camera is the most crucial factor and that the particular gear, he or she used, is less important. However, the camera is not insignificant to the creative process.

OK, we know this one is going to be controversial, but when Matt Granger speaks, people listen because he’s been a top pro for many years. And for someone known as “the Nikon Guy” for the past 15 years, a decision to sell all his high-end gear and move to another system is a really big deal.

Woah people, this is a big one! It’s not just a part of a camera we're giving away this time, it’s a WHOLE camera and lens. And it’s not just any ol’ camera, it's the highly desirable 24.2MP Sony Alpha A7 III full frame mirrorless camera with a 28-70mm lens. (And, oh yeah, we're also giving away four Amazon gift cards to boot.)

The last Canon mirrorless camera I reviewed was the EOS RP, which at the time of introduction was billed as the world’s least expensive full-frame mirrorless model.  The subject of today’s review, the 45MP Canon EOS R5, is a totally different animal that also makes a preemptive claim as Canon’s "most advanced full-frame mirrorless camera ever."
