There are few things that can get a man’s heart pumping like a new camera and a legendary car race to test it out at. Or at least that’s how I felt when I got a chance to take the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 for a spin at the Indianapolis 500 in May.

Sony annouced today that the A7S II, which hits stores in October, will give photographers the option of shooting compressed or uncompressed 14-Bit Raw images.

It took them a while but Canon is finally bringing its EOS M3 mirrorless camera system to the U.S. in October 2015. The 24.2-megapixel M3, which uses the same APS-C CMOS sensor as in the Canon Rebel T6 and T6i DSLRs, was launched globally last February but the company held off bringing it here for undisclosed reasons.

I didn’t realize how much I could appreciate a mirrorless CSC (Compact System Camera) till, after working with the Samsung NX500 for several days, I picked up my Nikon D610 DSLR and realized I was carrying a brick in my hands. Don’t get me wrong, though. I still love my D610 and wouldn’t trade it in for anything (not just yet), but the new NX500 felt like a feather around my neck and in my hands. Even when I added the relatively heavy 50-150mm S-series lens, the combo still left me feeling as if I were working with a lyre, not a harp. Admittedly, like the lyre, it’s not as full-bodied an instrument, but the NX500 still plays a sweet tune.

The new Sony A7 II is a mirrorless system camera with a 24MP full-frame sensor. It is the follow-up to the A7, Sony’s successful and first full-frame CSC (Compact System Camera), which debuted in 2013. The new A7 II has a somewhat different body design: the grip on the right-hand side became a little larger and now fits better into the photographer’s hand. The body overall became 100 grams heavier. The larger grip and the heavier body allow the photographer to hold the camera in a very stable and steady fashion. Handling is even better with the optional Sony handgrip: VGC2EM.

A new start-up company called Z Camera has just unveiled the E1, a GoPro-style camera that uses a Micro Four Thirds sensor, takes interchangeable lenses, and is capable of shooting 4K video. We got some hands-on time with the E1 last week during a meeting with Z Camera’s founder, Jason Zhang. Images of the camera in this story are from that meeting.

The 16-megapixel Fujifilm X-T10 mirrorless camera reminds me of the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial (bear with me Millennials) where two strangers—one eating peanut butter and one eating chocolate—bump into each other and somehow smash their food together. After a brief bit of yelling (“you got your peanut butter on my chocolate!” “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter”) they realize that the combination is better than the individual elements.
