Nikon D850 – This speedy DSLR also has a serious eye for detail

The perfect heavyweight boxer is one who marries power with lightning speed. Of course, the laws of physics mean that very few are blessed with both, but occasionally a Tyson all-rounder emerges to baffle their rivals. Well, the Nikon D850 is promising to be that freak specimen for DSLRs. Following the much-loved D810, it claims to marry extremely high resolution 45.4MP photos with the speedy burs...[Read More]

Quality is king with Canon’s EOS 77D

Canon’s EOS 77D offers high-end performance and full control and is ideal if you’re looking to upgrade your kit and refine your skills. With the same sensor technology found in the iconic EOS 80D and Canon’s processor – DIGIC 7 – the EOS 77D captures scenes in impressive quality, with richer detail, while being fast enough to ensure a crystal clear image. Boasting extremely fast auto focus using L...[Read More]

Canon EOS M100 hands-on – The perfect step up from your smartphone?

Damn those smartphones and their pesky cameras! What with almost everyone nowadays having a decent snapper to hand, Canon is working harder than ever to give you a reason to upgrade to a ‘real’ camera. While its name might sound like it belongs above an exit ramp somewhere off the N1 to Cape Town, the EOS M100 is a genuinely exciting prospect. An entry level camera that cuts out a lot ...[Read More]

Samsung’s Note 8 specs benched, plus a possible camera surprise

Just when you think you know it all, something shows up and makes you question what you know. This is as true of the Galaxy Note 8 as it is with the rest of life — there’s always something more to learn. Which is our long-winded way of saying that everything we know is… different. Well, not everything. And not that different. But there are reports of a subtle change for the Note ...[Read More]

Fujifilm XP120 — This tough cam proves that indestructibility needn’t cost the earth

Stuff doesn’t review too many affordable point-and-shoot cameras these days – call it a symptom of everyone having a good quality snapper in their pocket. Thanks, smartphones! But we’re happy to make an exception for the cheap and cheerful XP120. Why? Because it’s not just a compact camera with a low price and a dazzling day-glo colour scheme. It’s also a rugged camera that’s almost impossib...[Read More]

Two image leaks and a camera — Samsung Note 8 design confirmed by press renders

We can tell that we’re getting to the latest Samsung announcement because the leak steamroller is picking up speed and starting to make its way downhill, flattening other news as it passes. The Galaxy Note 8 is the current topic of conversation and a couple of image leaks, of official press renders this time, have left us in no doubt what we’re going to be dealing with at Samsung’...[Read More]

Nikon is readying the D850 for the company’s 100th anniversary

Hey, here’s something that’ll make you feel old — unless you’re some kind of camera history buff (yeah, we know you’re reading this), that is. Nikon are prepping their D850 full-frame camera for launch and the reason they’re doing that is because… the company is turning 100. Nikon has made it to a century, a feat that few tech-based companies can boast of....[Read More]

Olympus TG-5 – Rough, rugged and ready to shoot 4K video

Olympus’ Tough cams have long pitched themselves as the “premium” rugged compact option. And that continues with the latest TG-5 model, which costs a pretty penny. The R7,300 price tag might seem a bit steep for a point-and-shoot, even one as hardy as this. But there’s no doubt that the TG-5 comes with a lot more stuff than most of its competitors: built-in GPS and compass, 4K and slo-mo video rec...[Read More]

Upcoming R16,000 phone from RED includes ‘holographic’ display

It was only a matter of time before someone decided to try and turn the smartphone display on its head and the first attempt is from RED. The super high-end camera company. Weird, but okay. RED has announced, rather than a new high-speed video camera, the Hydrogen. The Hydrogen looks to be a smartphone, though the details of the device are being kept murky. It’s being billed as the “wo...[Read More]

Samsung Gear 360 (2017) — The best way to get a rounded view of the world?

Playing VR games is no longer enough to mark you out as pioneering geek – these days, you need to be making your own VR films too. That’s where 360-degree cameras come in. Samsung’s original Gear 360 was a little disappointing – while it performed well enough, it was too fussy about what it worked with, too expensive and a bit too bulky to fit in your pocket. Samsung seems ...[Read More]

6 reasons the Canon 6D Mark II is all the full-frame camera you need

It finally happened: Canon put the ancient EOS 6D DSLR out to pasture and replaced it with a camera worthy of 2017 AD. Take a bow, the all-new EOS 6D Mark II. Like its predecessor it’s a full-frame camera, and that bumper sensor size arguably remains its most important feature. But Canon has made a slew of refinements and tweaks that make the Mark II a very appealing prospect indeed, whether you’r...[Read More]

Nikon D500 — This speedy APS-C classic loves to be where the action is

These days, cameras like the Nikon D500 can seem a bit old-school – and not in the timeless, rangefinder sense either. After all, between mirrorless wonders like the Fujifilm X-T20 and full-frame monsters like Sony’s (unobtainable) A7R II, is there any room in your life for a R32,500 DSLR (body only) with an APS-C sensor? The answer, at least for anyone looking for a speedy, step-up DS...[Read More]
