Samsung S20 Ultra 5G Review

Desire for the latest technology has proven to be something of a frustrating aspect for tech enthusiasts, especially in recent times. Every year, phone manufacturers release their flagship phones to the market; each update generally only bringing minor changes or tweaks (such as a slightly bigger battery or screen).  Phones are now on their 11th iteration though, and these changes are now more clearly defined compared to the phones of yesteryears. The Samsung S20 Ultra 5G is one such example, even going as far as to say that the leap is another 10 generations ahead in its namesake. But is…

Nikon Z 50 Review: Nikon’s best mirrorless camera yet

In Nikon’s current slate of mirrorless cameras, the Nikon Z 50 is the best one thus far. This is not a slight towards the quality of their other mirrorless cameras, especially as a proud owner of a Z 6 myself. But for its price and feature set, the Z 50 is the perfect camera for budding photographers.   Upon receiving the Nikon Z 50, one thing was made apparent; this camera is tiny. I’ve previously mentioned how the Z 7 had a smaller body compared to DSLRs — the Z 50 is even smaller. It is essentially a further shrunken-down version…

Canon EOS RP Review: The cheapest full-frame entry point

Let’s begin with this: the Canon EOS RP is a surprising model that deviates from Canon’s usual EOS releases ; it doesn’t come with a new sensor or a dark-oriented focusing system. Instead, it is a full-frame mirrorless camera that costs less than other benchmark models such as the Canon EOS M5 and the Sony A6500. At S$1,699, Canon has done away with the notion that a full-frame camera with decent image quality should cost you an arm and a leg. Compared to its DSLR counterpart (6D Mk II), it is significantly cheaper and seems like the perfect camera for…

Canon EOS R: Same same but lighter

Every waking moment, another full-frame mirrorless camera is released. Not one to miss the boat, Canon steps up their game and delivers its very own Canon EOS R, equipped with the also new RF mount. The Canon EOS R is basically the dream of every (Canon-loving) photographer just two years ago — lightweight… capable… coming with edge-to-edge focusing… and even lenses that dwarf the existing EF lineup… Truly an immaculate piece of equipment. Yet, I didn’t think much of it, other than a sneak peek of what Canon has to offer in the mirrorless world. It didn’t seem to be…

Nikon Z 7 Camera Review: The Company's First Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is Not Really Worth the Hefty Price Tag

Equipped with a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and the first ever on-sensor phase detect system, Nikon has released its first ever full-frame mirrorless camera – the Nikon Z 7. It comes jam-packed with features that seem impressive enough to tick off every photographer’s dream camera specs, such as its 45.7 megapixels sensor, 493 on sensor phase detect system, a blistering 9 frames per second, and a 3.6 million dot electronic viewfinder. Would it live up to our expectations? We put it to the test and here’s what we found: Body and Handling Due to the absence of a mirror box, the…
