  • Thumbnail : £200 Tripod group test

    £200 Tripod group test

    Selecting the right tripod can be a minefield. So we've got three here for around £200 to see which offers the best value for money in construction, features and ease-of-use.

  • Thumbnail : Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

    Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

    A compact macro lens for EF-S compatible Canon SLRs which provides life-size magnification at its closest focus.

  • Thumbnail : Lowepro Pro Trekker 400AW

    Lowepro Pro Trekker 400AW

    The Pro Trekker 400AW is aimed at the extreme photographer, who needs to carry a fair amount of kit into less than favorable conditions. It offers pockets, space and straps galore and is large enough to fit a large DSLR with a 400mm f/2.8 lens attached. There are plenty of features on offer but can they live up to the high £264 price tag?

    Cokin Landscape 1 kit & Circular Polariser

    There's so much editing done on computers these days that photographers have forgotten how we used to add effects. The Cokin Landscape 1 filter kit is aimed at improving your pictures before you leave the location. Here we test the Landscape 1 kit and the Circular Polariser.

  • Thumbnail : Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta

    Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta

    A comparison between the highly acclaimed Lightroom 2.6 and the new incarnation of this award winning Raw processor. With new features and functionality, as well as some comprehensive updates, will Lightroom 3 entice new users into the Adobe arena, or is it simply stretching the monopoly with unnecessary features?

  • Thumbnail : Noise reduction software

    Noise reduction software

    Sometimes a fast film speed is necessary and the resultant noise can reduce your picture to a speckly wreck. Here we test various noise reduction programs to see which are the best.

  • Thumbnail : Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5

    Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5

    The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 offers a wide-angle zoom option for both EF and EF-S fit cameras. Boasting an Ultra-Sonic Motor and full manual focus control, does it compare well against established 3rd party options?

  • Thumbnail : Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye 10-17mm F/3.5-4.5

    Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fish-Eye 10-17mm F/3.5-4.5

    A unique fisheye zoom lens for Canon and Nikon APS-C SLRs that gives a 180 degree field of view corner to corner at 10mm.

  • Thumbnail : Samsung NX10 Review

    Samsung NX10 Review

    The Samsung NX10 is the company's answer to the Micro Four Thirds system and it is up against stiff competition from Olympus and Panasonic. Will Cheung tests it out.

  • Thumbnail : Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS30

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS30

    Need a slinky little compact to slip in your pocket ready for summer? The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS30 could be the right camera at the right price.

  • Thumbnail : Gossen Digipro F

    Gossen Digipro F

    Getting an accurate light reading is critical in photography and a light meter will do just that. The Gossen Digipro F is a budget model that reads both incidental and reflected light and costs £149.99.

  • Thumbnail : Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro 1:1

    Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro 1:1

    At £700, half the price of manufacturers own, can the Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro perform as well as the higher priced models?
