Sony RX1R

Sony RX1R Review – and using it as a Digital Contax G2 – by Simon King

The digital camera industry is as fast paced as any other digital manufacturing industry. We are now on the 10th iteration of the iPhone, after its debut in 2007; similarly since the Nex-7 in 2011 we have gone moved through the A6k and A7 series several times over, with no indication that the A9 or A7RIII will be their definitive/iconic models in the same way that the Nikon F3 was more or less The Nikon from 1980 to 2001.

Ricoh GXR

Ricoh GXR Review – By Alex Hakimi

It’s strange that I should be inspired to write a review about the Ricoh GXR; a digital camera. I made film my primary medium several years ago.

Fuji X100f Review – Has Fuji lost sight of the elegant original concept?

The Fuji X100f is the fourth iteration in the series. I had the original X100, but since then we’ve seen the a number of changes and additions to the design, first through an ‘s’ model, a ‘t’ model and now the ‘f’. The series of cameras has been consistently and quite strongly representative of Fuji’s reputation for listening to their users, I just can’t help wondering if they have listened a bit too much…

Leica D-lux (typ 109)

Leica D-Lux (typ 109) Review – serious digital compact? – Jef Price

I’ve used dozens of compacts, including most of the cult favorites like the Ricoh GR’s, they all had some glaring issue I couldn’t overlook.  I’ve long wanted a digital compact I could always keep with me, in the Jeep, a coat pocket or even as a backup, that could offer me good quality results without too many sacrifices. My hope when I got my hands on the Leica D-Lux (typ 109) was that it would be a winner. But I had my doubts.
