Photographer Eduardo Merille posted a fun comparison of the Canon 5D Mark II and the Sony RX-100. While I don’t think that the video is meant to imply that the RX-100 is better than the 5D-II in any way shape or form, I can’t help but noticing how well Sony’s little fixed lens wonder holds it’s own against it’s giant interchangeable lens cousin. Hello, David…  meet Goliath.  ; ) What do YOU think?  Leave your comments below. In the meantime, you can check out the Sony RX-100 Here
Gizmodo took four of today’s leading action cams and put them in a head to head to head to head contest in a “Which Point of View Camera is the Absolute Best” Smackdown. In this test, the Gizmodo boys put the GoPro Hero3, the Drift HD, the Contour +2 and the Sony Action Cam to the test and compare their image quality, image stabilization, slow motion capabilities, audio quality, etc. (Read full article on Gizmodo) When all was said and done, the cameras placed as follows: 4th Place and 3 Stars went to the Drift HD 3rd Place and 3 Stars [More]
m43.eu posted a great side by side autofocus speed test of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 vs the new Canon EOS M.  Canon have arrived late to the mirrorless party and the EOS M is a hot seller, but the camera itself is less than impressive in a lot of ways – particularly it’s pitiful autofocus performance – and has become a bit of a joke in mirrorless circles (witness the hilarious video below from The Camera Store in Calgary, Canada). The EOS M is a decent camera, and in some ways, it does show some promise.  But when you stack it [More]
MC contributor Will Crockett (DiscoverMirrorless.com) has been using the Panasonic Lumix GH2 (actually, 10 of them) for years as his company’s primary video production machine, as well as his camera of choice for product shots.  Now he’s testing the Lumix GH3 (and the new Pro lenses) and he’s considering upgrading all of his studio cameras to the new  offering from Panasonic. In this video, Will (who is VERY familiar with the GH2) weighs his options from a business point of view.  Does the new Lumix GH3 live up to the hype and is it good enough to warrant the expense [More]
Tascam has upped their game with firmware updates to their DR40 Portable Audio Recorder, but is it a serious contender to the Audio King of the Hill, the Zoom H4N? DSLRNoob posted a great video that compares the features of each. DSLRNoob writes: I’ve had the Tascam Dr-40 for quit some time, but until Tascam added the firmware update that gives you independent control of the input volume, I hadn’t really considered it a true competitor to the Zoom h4n. Now that this feature is available, the Tascam is a very affordable alternative to the Zoom h4n. Take a close [More]
EOSHD conducted a mini camera shootout and pitted some of today’s big names mono a mono a mono, and the video above features all the cameras listed below over the soundtrack of “True Faith” by New Order (Get it HERE from iTunes).  Can’t go wrong! Here’s the skinny from EOSHD: In a joint shootout with Slashcam in Berlin, EOSHD put the Blackmagic Cinema Camera into a bear pit against all rivalling cameras between $500 and $4000. It was a clear day and the results are just as stark. Download the full 2.5K shootout video. Here’s my verdict on which camera you should [More]
In this video, Kai and Lok of DigitalRevTV get the Canon S110 and G15, and are test each other with a series of challenges to find out which one is king of the Canon compacts. Our take: Each of these are decent compact cameras with 12 megapixel sensors that will get you good results. The G15 has more on body controls, whereas with the S110 you’ll need to go menu diving a bit, but it does have Wi-Fi. We agree with Kai that an enthusiast might be more tempted by the larger sensor on Canon’s G1X, but that camera is [More]
43Rumors posted a great article by DSLRMagazine (Translated version here) comparing the performance of the new Panasonic 35-100 mm x Power Zoom micro 4/3 lens and the highly renowned Canon 70-200 mm lens. Is it really necessary for a photovideographer to lug around all kinds of huge gear and large, expensive glass, or can a relatively small micro 4/3 lens hold it’s own against one of the big boys? It’s David vs Goliath… Camera Style! Here’s DSLR Magazine’s Conclusions (Translated – sometimes, not so well ~_^): From our point of view, after the collection and evaluation of all technical data [More]
(Test Video Above shot with the Panasonic Lumix LX7)  ePhotozine compared the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 and the Samsung EX2F in a head to head matchup. Who came out on top?  See their verdict below…   Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Samsung EX2F Features In terms of megapixels, the Samsung EX2F offers slightly more at 12.4, whereas the LX7 has 10.1 megapixels.

The Fuji guys from Fujifilm compare the two Mirror-less interchangeable lens Cameras, the XE-1 and X Pro1
A lot of people have been wondering whether the Fujifilm X-Pro1 can take a piece of the action away from the Leica M series, more specifically the M8 or M9. The X-Pro1 price is quite similar to the price of a used M8. DigitalRevTV explores these cameras so that you can see which one may be right for you…
Looking to break into hybrid imaging with a focus (no pun intended ~_^) on video?  Panasonic mirrorless cameras have long been celebrated for their video capabilities, and by using one of their interchangeable lens options, you can achieve professional quality video AND great still images as well. So how does the new Panasonic Lumix G5 stack up against Panny’s 2 year old flagship model, the GH2?  Watch as individual questions are answered by Panasonic experts during a live talk with online users. At MirrorlessCentral, we believe that you can’t go wrong with either option, especially now that the GH2 price [More]
How does the image quality of a DSLR compare to the new mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-7 or micro 4/3? The flange-to-focal distance is one important difference – but what does this mean in terms of camera design and image quality? Derp.
