In a class of its own: Samsung NX1 review - Samsung's NX1 seemed to offer pretty much every feature possible when we were first briefed about it last year. Its 28.2MP APS-C BSI sensor, hybrid AF system, 4K video and 15 fps continuous shooting with AF have continued to impress us throughout our extensive testing. Can such an innovative on-paper feature set make it a serious competitor to well-established brands in the DSLR and mirrorless worlds? Read review http://ow.ly/2X9ZN1

I quite agree my 7100 has a fleck to it, I was not putting this camera down just why do makers insist on making a good product look cheap with shiny plastic look not a semi, matt, textured finish,

I'm just going to agree with Seth. TTL might be handy for some situations, especially if you are Joe McNally, but I've lived fine without it.

Canon XC10: What you need to know - Canon's new XC10 is the first product we've seen which is neither a stills camera with a video feature or a video camera that can capture stills. In terms of both specification and ergonomics it is a true 'convergence' product with the potential to shake up more than one market segment. We've been poring over the specifications for a while now - here's what you need to know  http://ow.ly/2X5Vkf

Would be nice to have another version with a shorter zoom range with a constant aperture like the Sony RX10.

LaCie updates Rugged Thunderbolt lineup with 1TB SSD option - LaCie has introduced a new Rugged Thunderbolt external drive, updating its lineup with a 1TB SSD. This is double the previous Rugged drive's 500GB capacity, and is coupled with a rugged external housing able to withstand water exposure, shock, and dust.

Colorado proposes bill supporting photographers who record police http://ow.ly/2X0wEO
Colorado, U.S. state legislatures have introduced a new bill that, if signed into law, will prevent law enforcement officers from interfering with citizens who are photographing or recording police activity. It is House Bill 15-1290, and it comes at a time when Texas has proposed its own bill on the topic, but with a draconian slant: it penalizes citizens that film or photograph police actions within 15 feet of the incident. Read more

Every State should have a law like this one. Police officer are suppose to up hold the law and their action in doing this should not go beyond the very laws they are enforcing. I believe this would help because they will know that their actions can be filmed at any time. I am very thankful for the men and women who serve and protect. But with ever profession there are people that abuse their power and they should be held accountable for that abuse of their position.

Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS real-world samples posted - In theory, Sony's FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS all-in-one zoom is an ideal candidate for travel photography with one of the company's a7-series. The stabilized lens provides Sony's full frame mirrorless cameras with a 10x zoom range, designed with five aspherical elements and one ED glass element. We put it to the test on landscapes, portraits, and lots of things in between. See gallery http://ow.ly/2X0fWc
