  • ThinkTank Hydrophobia Review from the Wild

    I was soaked at the end of each day.   However, my camera gear had a much more pleasant experience, not only capturing amazing moments but I never had to worry about my camera body or long lens as my Hydrophobia rain cover kept my camera gear perfectly dry.   My hands fit in great, they were dry and allowed me easily to easily snap away.

  • Nikon KeyMission 360 Field Test

    The Ricoh Theta was the first 360-degree camera I ever dabbled with, and I distinctly remember both having a great time manipulating the still photos and being hugely disappointed with the poor video quality.  Since that time, I’ve seen endless announcements of new 360 cameras, but haven’t gotten my hands on one until I received the new Nikon KeyMission 360. Not only does this camera boast hugely improved specs over the Ricoh Theta S, but it comes in a shorter, waterproof, ruggedized housing!

The E-M10 is the latest addition to the line, an entry level option with many of the best features from the E-M1 and E-M5.

  • Panasonic GM1 vs Sony RX100 Mark II Shootout

    If someone came to The Camera Store looking for a ‘high end point and shoot’ we’d give them an RX100 and send them on their way.  Tragically, Panasonic has thrown a wrench in that simplicity with the introduction of the GM1, a strong contender for the title of ‘best pocket size camera ever made ever’.
