The Sony A6400 is an incredibly versatile mirrorless camera that's easy to use for sharp photos, 4K video and even sports photography

  In recent years, Sony has made and continues to make a splash with its Alpha full-frame mirrorless cameras that are geared toward advanced and professional photographers. But, it also makes a line of terrific APS-C cropped-sensor mirrorless cameras that deserve just as much praise. Compact and lightweight, they are designed with travel, amateur, and other photographers who don't need the power and feature set of Sony's higher-end options. However, Sony's APS-C cameras aren't any lesser of a p...

Space Oddity

If Nikon's Pronea 6i looked like a prototype of the future consumer-grade DSLR and Canon's EOS IX looked like a Nineties sci-fi movie prop, Minolta's Vectis S-1 looked like...well, it looks normal now. If I'm walking around with the Hasselblad Lunar or the Fuji X-E1, someone inevitably asks "Oh, is that a film camera?" Despite it actually being a film camera, it's unlikely anyone will ask that about the Vectis.It looks pretty much like a generic digital MILC or Bridge Camera from about ten yea...

Oh, so that's what it means...

The APS film format came and went while I wasn't paying attention. It showed up a couple years after I'd stopped working in the photo biz, and by the time I was paying attention to cameras again, it was 2001 and I was buying a Sony Mavica digital camera and film photography itself was collapsing precipitously. The Nikon looks like a regular SLR, while the EOS IX is self-consciously '90s cyberpunk The name survives because what we currently refer to as "crop sensor" DSLR & mirrorless ca...

Lightweight and small, but powerful...

As a means of sneaking a spare backup body along on travels, I'd sling a crop-sensor DSLR around my neck with a travel zoom on it. It didn't get counted as a "carry on" so I had a backup body along in case one of my work cameras went toes up (since it could use my good lenses), and one that didn't take up space in with the actual camera gear at that.With an 18-135mm EF-S travel zoom on it, I also used it to snap pictures at the airport or out the plane window. Thing is, even on a small Canon R...

More from the river

Here's another image from that walk along the river in January 2012. I took these photos with my first digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix "bridge" camera purchased in 2006. They were among the last photos I'd take with the Lumix before I got my first DSLR a few months later. Muddy ruts in a dirt road down by the river, January 2012. The file format was JPG, automatically processed by the camera. I hadn't yet ventured into RAW photos and was using an earlier version of Photoshop Elements for add...

The Mustang on film: Canon EOS Elan II & Kodak Ektar 100, which Kodak claims is "(t)he world's finest grain color negative film!" (Exclamation point in original.)When this car was new, the EOS Elan II, made from 1995 to 2000, was still a year in the future. Canon was still two years out from the half-a-megapixel PowerShot 600, its first consumer digital camera, and six years away from launching the D30, its first entirely in-house DSLR. . [Author: Tam]
