Peak Design Everyday Backpack Review

A high-quality, high-capacity backpack

By Ishpuini in Review Announcements on Jan 25, 2017

Ever since launching their Capture Camera Clip on Kickstarter back in 2011, Peak Design has been using the platform to launch new and interesting products ranging from camera straps, lens clips to camera bags. The second half of 2016 saw four new camera bags being launched: two Everyday Backpacks (20L and 30L), the Everyday Tote and the Everyday Sling. We received a pre-production copy of the Everyday Backpack 20L and have been using it both as a camera bag and as a everyday commuter bag. It is a very elegant & beautiful looking backpack, but there's more to it than that. As you will find from our review, the number of little details that Peak Design included is impressive, which results in a very flexible and practical bag with a wide application range.

Today we are happy to present an in-depth look at the HD Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 lens.

D FA* 70-200mm mounted on the Pentax K-1

A 70-200mm is likely to be found in most professional photographers' bags, and this new Pentax lens is particularly interesting and relevant now that the Pentax K-1 is available. 70-200mm lenses come with high expectations regarding performances and quality. On paper, the D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 ticks all the boxes and comes equipped with some interesting and unique features.

But how does the D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 perform in the real world? Read on to find out!  We also compare it directly to the Tamron 70-200mm F2.8!

Pentax K-70 Review Posted

Mid-range body boasting the best APS-C image quality to date

By deadwolfbones in Review Announcements on Oct 14, 2016

Pentax's latest DSLR has positively surprised us over the course of the past several weeks of testing.  This new yet affordable 24-megapixel DSLR not only incorporates advanced features from the APS-C flagship Pentax K-3 II and full-frame K-1, but it also delivers what we've found to be the best image quality from any Pentax crop body.  Specifically, this camera exhibits less noise at high ISOs than its older cousins, and it's the first mid-range body to offer 14-bit color depth.

Read on to find out how the camera stood up to our tests!

Ricoh WG-M2 Review Posted

A 4K capable action camera

By deadwolfbones in Review Announcements on Sep 12, 2016

The Ricoh WG-M2 is an intriguing addition to the rugged WG line of outdoor cameras.  As this year's follow-up to Ricoh's first entry into the action cam market, the WG-M2 is a substantial upgrade: it boasts the ability to record 4K video at 30 FPS— something not offered by even the most expensive Pentax DSLR models in the current lineup.

This camera also delivers an extraordinarily wide angle of view as well as waterproofing and a number of optional mounts.  But is this a worthy competitor to market leaders such as GoPro?  Is it a good value?  Read on to find out!

HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm Review Posted

A versatile, compact, high-performance zoom

By PF Staff in Review Announcements on Jul 28, 2016

We are happy to finally kick off our series of in-depth reviews of the D FA full-frame zoom lenses launched alongside the Pentax K-1!  In this first installment, we take a close look at the HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR.  Expect us to cover the remaining lenses in the coming months.

This ultra-portable lens costs just $446 (in the US) and covers a convenient range of commonly-used focal lengths.  It's also packed with the latest Pentax lens technologies, including the HD coating, silent DC autofocus, and weather sealing.  But how does it fare in the field when it comes to image quality?  Is it a consumer-grade lens, or does it stack up against its more expensive rivals?
