When you think of cameras with a cult following, the Ricoh GR series instantly comes to mind. And with the newest generation—the Ricoh GR III—this advanced point-and-shoot is ready to take on a mainstream audience. While the camera has the name “III,” it is, in fact, the 14th GR-series camera,...

Early in my career I took a job as a one-man studio photographer for a Swedish toy company called Creative Playthings. There were two camera systems I was required to know–a 35mm Nikon F system and a medium-format Hasselblad system. I knew the Nikon system inside out. I lied about the Hasselblads—I had never touched one, and I spent my first day figuring out how to use it. The job lasted two...

Being a writer/photographer around here means that on any given day I could be attending meetings and writing, heading out to take photos of, or with, the latest gear, or even shoot an editing video for social media or the Web. This means being prepared for anything. Unfortunately, since I live in Connecticut, I do not want to drag along anything that I don’t need or that will weigh me down. I...

Fluidity is the key to my everyday carry (EDC). Besides my day job as a writer and photographer here at B&H Photo Video, I also teach sailing on the Hudson River, do freelance commercial architectural photography, teach college photography, commute to Manhattan from Brooklyn by bicycle, and ride commuter trains to Rhode Island on weekends. While my bicycle pannier has its own EDC items (...

Upon first glance, the Profoto Connect Wireless Transmitter seems deceptively simple. When I was given a unit to test, it melded into the hot shoe of my Sony a7RII almost too seamlessly—a far cry from the unwanted bulk added by...

One thing I've learned over the years is that when it comes to Voigtländer lenses, you get a lot of bang for your buck. Voigtländer's new 50mm f/1.2 Nokton Aspheric lens, which I had the pleasure of road testing, is no exception....

One week in Europe. One bag to pack. One camera to bring. Nikon’s first full-frame mirrorless. A lot of ones and firsts leading up to my trip to Europe this past week but, like any other trip, I was caught debating which camera to bring, up until the last minute. Luckily for me, coinciding perfectly with my departure, we received a Nikon Z 7 for review two days before I was set to leave for...

Leica has a knack for making cameras that aren’t for everybody, but that everybody wants. The M10-D is a prime example of this—it is one of the most technically hamstrung cameras available today, but still, by far, one of the most alluring. It’s a controversial camera, receiving...

In the world of APS-C format cameras, the pickings are slim if you’re looking for a wide-angle zoom with a fixed maximum aperture of f/2.8. If you own an APS-C format DSLR with a Pentax K-mount, you’re one of the lucky ones, because based on my experience with the Pentax HD DA* 11-18mm f/2.8 ED DC...

Days after borrowing a Fujifilm GFX 50R with a Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR wide-angle lens from our Fujifilm rep, I was asked to review Fujifilm’s new...

Imagine changing your photography instantly. Like many photographers, I am always on a quest for optical sharpness, and only B&H Photo and a few local camera stores know how much this quest has cost me over the past 30-some years. When handed an optic like the new Lensbaby Edge 35, my first...

Having written reviews of several of Sigma’s Art and Sports-series lenses, I welcomed an opportunity to review Sigma’s newest Global Vision lens: the Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. Photographs © Allan Weitz 2019...

The Mamiya 7 II is the best camera ever made. At least I think so, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks this. It is the perfect mixture of form and function; uniquely precise and casual at the same time. Its system contains some of the finest lenses available during the film era, many of which are still likely optically superior to lenses being developed today. It is a 6 x 7 format film...

Somehow, Leica managed to improve its powerful full-frame fixed-lens camera with the Q2. Photographer David Flores took it out for a day in Chinatown, where he shows off the new features enabled by the 47.3MP CMOS sensor and Summilux 28mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens. To find out more about this stellar...

Even the best cameras in the world need batteries, same as your laptop, smartphone, tablet, monitor, and, I’m assuming, a ton of your photo accessories. When you are at home or in the studio, it isn’t much of an issue. You just plug everything into the wall outlet to charge or stay powered up. When you travel out on location, those outlets can’t exactly travel with you. That is what makes the...
