July 16, 2020

It wasn’t that long ago I was declaring the Fujifilm X-A7 the best value entry-level mirrorless camera… but I need to correct that.

November 18, 2019

There’s not much I don’t love about Canon’s new M-series offering the EOS M6 Mark II. It’s a small-bodied mirrorless camera sporting a whopping 32.5MP APS-C sensor, 4K 30P video, Full HD 120P video and epic Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus.

August 6, 2019

The Lumix G9 and I were first introduced at its Australian launch in Sydney in November 2017, where it was presented as a wildlife or sports photographer’s dream – super-fast shooting speeds, wild autofocus speed and a rugged weatherproof design.

Full frame, fast-shooting and 4K – that’s a great combination. Nikon’s new Z series mirrorless body the Z6 offers all of these things, while still being light enough to carry around and powerful enough to perform in low light.

August 30, 2018

To everyone who’s ever asked me what camera to buy “to take nicer photos than my phone” — get a Lumix GX9. You’re welcome.
