Nikon D3400 review - a new budget DSLR!

Listen-up students, beginners or anyone taking their first steps in photography: Mirrorless may be all the rage, but if you simply want a camera with a big sensor that can swap lenses and has a built-in viewfinder at the lowest price, it's still hard to beat an entry-level DSLR. The two main players are of course Canon and Nikon and today I have a review of Nikon's latest budget body for you, the D3400. Like earlier models it sports a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, an optical viewfinder, 3in screen and easy controls, but new to this generation is SnapBridge, Nikon's wireless technology. This allows the D3400 to maintain a low-power Bluetooth link with your smartphone, trickling images over as you take them if desired, and if you like tagging them with your GPS position too. Bluetooth may not be as quick as Wifi, but the fact the image transfer can take place automatically without intervention means your images could be waiting for you on your phone seconds after taking them with the DSLR, ready for immediate, hassle-free sharing. Sure the D3400 may not have Wifi - and therefore lacks smartphone remote control - but the ease with which SnapBridge works is very seductive. But is the D3400 the right camera for you? Find out in Ken's review where he's compared it against Canon's entry-level EOS 1300D / Rebel T6, along with a selection of mirrorless rivals for good measure!

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV review - one of my biggest reviews yet!

Canon's EOS 5D Mark IV is the long-awaited fourth model in the enormously popular series of full-frame DSLRs. Coming over four years after the previous EOS 5D Mark III, the Mark IV boosts the resolution to 30.4 Megapixels with a new full-frame sensor that supports Dual Pixel CMOS AF for confident refocusing during Live View and movies. It accelerates continuous shooting to 7fps, inherits the 61-point AF system and 3.2in touchscreen of the EOS 1Dx Mark II and can film 4k movies (in the DCI Cinema format) up to 30p, along with 1080 / 60p and 720 / 120p. The body features improved weather-proofing along with a built-in GPS receiver and Wifi with NFC. It brings the Mark III up-to-date, but finds itself in a market packed with highly compelling mirrorless alternatives. In one of my biggest reviews to date, I've delved into the 5D Mark IV's capabilities and made a wealth of photo and movie comparisons with a variety of full-frame and APS-C bodies. Find out if it's the camera you've been waiting for in my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV review!

PS - this single review is over 20,000 words long and represents a month's work!

Canon EOS 80D review - the ultimate hybrid, upgraded!

Canon's EOS 80D couples the speed and confidence of a traditional mid-range DSLR with one of the best movie and live view autofocus systems on the market. This gives you the choice of uncompromised shooting whether you're using the optical viewfinder or the fully-articulated touch-screen. The earlier EOS 70D really did give you the best of both Worlds and now the EOS 80D enhances it further. Many of the new upgrades directly address deficiencies with arch rival Nikon, but it's also great to find the headlining Dual Pixel CMOS AF now working at 1080 / 60p and with all EF lenses. If you're into shooting stills and movies, it's a highly compelling option and the subject of my latest in-depth review which runs to over 14000 words and includes an hour-long video analysis! I've spent several weeks testing the EOS 80D, thoroughly testing every aspect and comparing its quality and performance closely with Nikon's D7200. Find out which is best for you in my review linked below.

Nikon D500 review - supremely confident for sports and wildlife!

The D500 marks Nikon's welcome return to the high-end APSC DSLR market. As you'd expect given the six year wait, the D500 is a worthy successor to the D300s and a supremely confident DSLR: tough build, fast handling, fantastic autofocus and a refreshing array of new technology including a tilting touch-screen, 4k video and a cunning Bluetooth implementation that sees your photos GPS-tagged and shared with minimal effort.

I've been testing the D500 and analysing my results for the best part of a month in order to bring you my latest in-depth review. I of course devoted a great deal of time to testing the continuous AF capabilities to get a measure of its core strength, but also put the 4k video and SnapBridge thoroughly through their paces. SnapBridge in particular ended up being fascinating, as while it's painfully slow compared to Wifi, it may end up tagging your images and copying low res versions to your phone faster and more easily. Simply timing the data rates doesn't tell the whole story, and as I discovered, Nikon could be onto one of the smartest wireless implementations out there. You'll find out everything in my review!

With over 15,000 words and an hour-long video report, my D500 review is another labour of love! So if you find any of it useful or like what I do, please do support me when shopping for anything at Amazon, B&H or Adorama by first clicking through to them using the links at the end of my reviews. Or treat me to a coffee via the site! Cheers!

Canon EOS Rebel T6 1300D review - an affordable DSLR for students and beginners!

If you're taking your first steps into 'serious' photography or studying the subject, you'll no doubt be shopping for a camera with a decent sized sensor, the chance to swap lenses and the opportunity to compose with a viewfinder. Canon's EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D fits the bill and is one of the most affordable cameras with this specification. But is it the best bet for students and beginners? In our full review Ken compares it against its most obvious rival, Nikon's D3300, along with two mirrorless alternatives.

Canon EOS 5Ds review - 50 Megapixel monster!

Here's Canon's EOS 5Ds fitted with the EF 11-24mm f4L USM, a combination which captures massive views with massive resolution. The EOS 5Ds is a full-frame DSLR boasting 50.6 Megapixels, making it not just Canon's highest resolution camera to date by a long margin, but also leap-frogging the 36 Megapixel Nikon D810 and 42 Megapixel Sony A7r II. It comes in two versions with the alternative 5Ds R model employing a low-pass cancelling filter for potentially sharper results, albeit with increased risk of moire.

In my review I've taken a close look at what's new, especially compared to the earlier EOS 5D Mark III and compared the RAW stills and video quality of these two DSLRs. Epic detail is possible, but only if you shoot with great care. Some of my results will confirm your suspicions, but others may surprise you.

It's certainly the DSLR many Canon owners have been waiting for, but is it the right choice for you? Find out in my in-depth review, and check back soon for updated comparisons with Sony's A7r Mark II!

Canon EOS 760D / Rebel T6s review - a classy step-up from budget DSLRs

The EOS 760D, or Rebel T6s as it's known in North America, is Canon's latest upper entry-level DSLR. Successor to the EOS 700D / Rebel T5i, it boosts the sensor resolution from 18 to 24 Megapixels (the highest yet for Canon's APS-C DSLRs), features an improved hybrid AF system for movies, a new 7560 pixel metering sensor, a 19-point viewfinder AF system (inherited from the EOS 70D), and becomes the first Rebel / xxxD to feature built-in Wifi with NFC. Like its predecessor, it's also fitted with a 3in fully-articulated touch-screen and a penta-mirror optical viewfinder.

Interestingly the 760D / T6s was announced alongside a slightly cheaper version called the 750D / T6i. This version lacks the upper information screen, eye sensor and rear control dial, along with the digital zoom and HDR modes for movies. But inside, the sensor, screen, viewfinder, 5fps continuous shooting and 19-point AF system are identical.

Having the two models is an interesting strategy. The lower-end T6i / 750D feels firmly in the upper entry-level camp, while the higher-end T6s / 760D feels more like a mid-range model, like the EOS 70D. In my review I'll take an in-depth look at the EOS 760D / T6s and show you how it compares not just to the 750D / T6i, but rival models including Nikon's D5500, Panasonic's Lumix G7 and Sony's A6000. So if you're shopping for a step-up from a budget interchangeable lens camera, you're in the right place!
