Head-2-Head Portrait/Fashion Shootout: Canon Mid-Range DSLRs
on Nov 30, 0006 at 12:00AM

The middle tier of Canon's DSLR lineup starts at a very affordable price point, with the well-rounded, 15-megapixel EOS 50D carrying an MSRP of $1200. The 50D's balance and all-around solid performance qualifies it as a suitable backup camera for almost any application, and even a primary camera for a majority of assignments....

Head-2-Head Software Review: Phase One Capture One Pro vs. Hasselblad Phocus vs. Leaf Capture
on Dec 15, 2009 at 7:58AM

If you're in the market for a Medium Format Digital Back (MFDB), it doesn't take too long before you realize that a very big part of the decision is the software that works with the system. These cameras started as tethered systems for the studio, and that's where they justified their investment early on - in speed and efficiency of workflow. It's no wonder that one of the applications, Phase One's Capture One Pro, has evolved to give professional MFDB power to the DSLR user....

Head-2-Head Review: Canon EOS Rebel T1i vs. Nikon D5000
on Dec 7, 2009 at 9:02AM

In a lot of ways, the D5000 and the T1i represent Nikon and Canon at the top of their games. It's easy to build a high-end product that you can toss everything into, with the mission to put together the best possible performance. When you are trying to keep the price under control, though, and in the case of these cameras, we're talking less than $1000 with a lens, it challenges the designers to put together not necessarily the absolute best, but the most workable for the money. Both of these cameras are showpieces of great design. There are, however, significant differences in philosophy and priority that show up, and define the two DSLRs....

Head-2-Head Lighting Review: Profoto Pro-8a 2400 Air vs. Broncolor Scoro A4S
on Nov 23, 2009 at 8:18AM

If you're looking for the top performance in studio strobe systems, it's a pretty short and pricey list. Profoto and Broncolor have always been battling for the rarified market of a handful of the biggest and best commercial, advertising and editorial photographers, and the rental studios and dealers who serve the rest of the market. The Profoto Pro-8a 2400 Air retails for $10,999 and the Broncolor Scoro A4S for $10,692....

H2H First Look: Leica M9 vs. Leica M8.2 vs. Olympus E-P1
on Sep 9, 2009 at 9:20AM

As the dust surrounding the introduction of the 18-megapixel Leica M9 settles, we'll examine how the full frame digital rangefinder stacks up to competing models within its niche, and try to provide context for the unique luxury camera. ...

Head-2-Head Review: Leica M8.2 vs. Canon EOS 5D Mk II
on Sep 7, 2009 at 7:00AM

Justifying this matchup as a true "head-to-head" will raise some eyebrows and ruffle some feathers. These two cameras have far more differences than similarities, but bear with us, there are a number of reasons to compare them....

Head-2-Head Review: Nikon Coolpix L19 vs. Olympus FE 25
on Jul 28, 2009 at 5:05PM

If you are feeling the crunch from your shrinking stock portfolio or otherwise have a tight budget, you can still have a digital camera for the price of a cheap ticket to a Vegas show. There are a handful of options to choose from, and we chose to review the Olympus FE-25 and the Nikon Coolpix L19, both retailing for $109. The price is right on both of these, but when pared against each other, which camera wins dollar for dollar?...

Head-2-Head Review: Nikon D3x vs. Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III
on Jul 10, 2009 at 2:53PM

The two most expensive DSLRs from Canon and Nikon are notable mainly for their pixel counts. The Canon 1Ds Mark III and the Nikon D3X record 21.1 and 24.5 megapixels, respectively. Does the resolution justify the burden of handling such large files and near $8,000 cost?...

Mini Head-2-Head Review: Olympus E-P1 vs. Canon Rebel T1i vs. Nikon D5000
on Aug 5, 2009 at 7:05AM

Not often do we get a chance to do a 3-way Head-2-Head review, but these cameras share a couple of key elements that warrant a closer comparison....
