My pick for our DPReview Gear of the Year: the Canon Rebel SL1 / EOS 100D. It's a great little family camera, and a lot of fun for hobby photographers too. http://bit.ly/1f6hvFc

White cameras look nice but tend to get lost in the snow; it happened to my friend Gary.

Another Hasselblad Rebadge or Photoshopped Hoax? - Various rumor sites are today reporting Hasselblad is poised to release a $10,000 rebadge of the Sony A7 that was just announced yesterday. Some even report it as if it's a real product. Even just a cursory glance at the image suggests it's a quick Photoshop job to add a wood grip and lighten the tint of the body. The serial number on the lens also suspiciously matches the product shots Sony released yesterday as well. What do you think?

I've spent the last few weeks shooting the Canon 70D, with a focus on its Dual Pixel AF. It works surprisingly well, giving the effect of conventional phase detect in live view. There are a few limitations, however, so read my report for the details: http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-eos-70d/7
