Introduced late last year, the SLT Alpha 68 adopts a 24-Mpix APS-C CMOS sensor sitting behind a fixed mirror that allows AF-tracking and continuous shooting at up to 8 fps, without blacking out between shots. http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sony-SLT-Alpha-68-sensor-review-Incremental-advances-over-the-high-end-Alpha-65 DxOMark Thursday 21 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Sony Cybershot DSC-RX10 III sensor review: Family perks <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/reviews/sony-cybershot-dsc-rx10-iii-sensor-review-family-perks/149645-5-eng-US/Sony-Cybershot-DSC-RX10-III-sensor-review-Family-perks_large.png"> <br> Sony’s latest iteration of the RX10 is much more than a simple update. While it includes the same Bionz X level processor and what looks on paper at least to be the same or a related 20-Mpix 1”-type BSI sensor, version III has a totally different lens than its predecessors. Where the original RX and the version II featured a high-speed 24-200mm equivalent f/2.8 zoom, this new model has an impressive 24-600mm equivalent f/2.4-4.0 instead. http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sony-Cybershot-DSC-RX10-III-sensor-review-Family-perks DxOMark Wednesday 20 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Panasonic Lumix GX80/GX85 sensor review: Diminutive design <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/reviews/panasonic-lumix-gx80-gx85-sensor-review-diminutive-design/149507-1-eng-US/Panasonic-Lumix-GX80-GX85-sensor-review-Diminutive-design_large.jpg"> <br> Panasonic’s latest small and compact GX80/85 mirrorless hybrid boasts 4K video and a 16Mp MFT sensor with the OLPF removed. http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Panasonic-Lumix-GX80-GX85-sensor-review-Diminutive-design DxOMark Tuesday 19 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Moto Z Force Droid Mobile review <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/mobiles/moto-z-force-droid-mobile-review/149325-1-eng-US/Moto-Z-Force-Droid-Mobile-review_large.jpg"> <br> Achieving an excellent DxOMark overall mobile score of 87 points, the Moto Z Force Droid captures still images with very high levels of detail, making it a good choice for smartphone photographers shooting landscape, architectural, or complex scenes. Its high-resolution 21Mp front-facing camera captures images with a large 5344 x 4008 pixel resolution, making high-quality A2 size poster prints at 230 ppi resolution possible. http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Moto-Z-Force-Droid-Mobile-review DxOMark Thursday 14 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Moto Z Droid Mobile review: Solid performer <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/mobiles/moto-z-droid-mobile-review-solid-performer/149394-10-eng-US/Moto-Z-Droid-Mobile-review-Solid-performer_large.jpg"> <br> The Moto Z Droid achieves a respectable DxOMark mobile score of 84 points, producing well-exposed images that boast a pleasant overall feel, with a good range of tones and nice color rendering. Featuring a lower-resolution 13Mp sensor compared to its sibling model, the 21Mp Moto Z Force Droid, the Moto Z Droid offers good levels of detail on outdoor and indoor shots, although very fine detail isn’t quite as well-preserved compared to the Force model. The 13Mp sensor captures images with a 4160x3120 pixel resolution, making large A3 poster prints at 250ppi print resolution possible. http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Moto-Z-Droid-Mobile-review-Solid-performer DxOMark Thursday 14 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Huawei P9 vs. P8 Mobile review: Good improvement for the latest device <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/mobiles/huawei-p9-vs.-p8-mobile-review-good-improvement-for-the-latest-device/149204-19-eng-US/Huawei-P9-vs.-P8-Mobile-review-Good-improvement-for-the-latest-device_large.jpg"> <br> With a DxOMark Mobile score of 80, the Huawei P9’s dual 12Mp RGB and monochrome sensors provide solid results. Our tests showed a nice improvement over its predecessor, the P8, which scored 74 overall, with the P9 offering improved autofocus and more consistent exposure and color results. The P9’s sub-scores of 84 points for photo and 72 for video demonstrate Huawei’s latest device is particularly strong for still photography. http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/Huawei-P9-vs.-P8-Mobile-review-Good-improvement-for-the-latest-device DxOMark Wednesday 13 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro HSM C Pentax lens review: Convenient choice <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/drafts/sigma-18-300mm-f-3.5-6.3-dc-macro-hsm-c-pentax-lens-review-convenient-choice/148953-1-eng-US/Sigma-18-300mm-f-3.5-6.3-DC-Macro-HSM-C-Pentax-lens-review-Convenient-choice_large.jpg"> <br> Our comprehensive review analyzes the scores of Sigma’s most versatile and best-performing super-zoom for Pentax APS-C DSLRs http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sigma-18-300mm-f-3.5-6.3-DC-Macro-HSM-C-Pentax-lens-review-Convenient-choice DxOMark Friday 08 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM A Canon lens review: Picture-perfect <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/reviews/sigma-20mm-f-1.4-dg-hsm-a-canon-lens-review-picture-perfect/148880-8-eng-US/Sigma-20mm-f-1.4-DG-HSM-A-Canon-lens-review-Picture-perfect_large.jpg"> <br> Roundup of the top image quality scores for the widest f/1.4 aperture lens currently available. http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sigma-20mm-f-1.4-DG-HSM-A-Canon-lens-review-Picture-perfect DxOMark Wednesday 06 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX Nikon lens review: Top performer <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/reviews/tokina-at-x-24-70mm-f-2.8-pro-fx-nikon-lens-review-top-performer/148799-1-eng-US/Tokina-AT-X-24-70mm-f-2.8-PRO-FX-Nikon-lens-review-Top-performer_large.jpg"> <br> The Tokina AT-X 24-70mm f/2.8 PRO FX (Tokina 24-70mm f/2.8) is a wide-angle to short telephoto, fast-aperture standard zoom for use on full-frame Canon or Nikon DSLRs. Great lens metric scores from Tokina’s latest affordable, pro-grade, standard zoom for Nikon full-frame DSLRs. http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Tokina-AT-X-24-70mm-f-2.8-PRO-FX-Nikon-lens-review-Top-performer DxOMark Tuesday 05 July 2016 18:00:00 GMT Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM review: Best zoom in the range <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/drafts/sony-fe-24-70mm-f2.8-gm-review-best-zoom-in-the-range/148728-1-eng-US/Sony-FE-24-70mm-F2.8-GM-review-Best-zoom-in-the-range_large.jpg"> <br> Announced as one of a trio of lenses in the new G Master series, the new FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM boasts some pretty advanced technology to complement future sensor and camera designs.
