There are a loooooooooot of icons on your camera’s LCD and viewfinder. So many, in fact, that it can be overwhelming if you don’t know what they mean. They also provide critical information about your exposure, camera status, and important settings. Do you know the meaning of all of them? If not, we ‘re here to help. Here is a list of all the camera symbols you can find in your camera’s LCD and their meaning. Just in case you were curious.
Andrea Pizzini of Sony Alpha Rumors just shared a video on his channel that would make you drool. He showed off the upcoming Sony A9III with its 120 fps shutter, just doing its typical digital shutter sound. 120 times a second. Music to my ears, I tell you.
I have been a Canon shooter, using the best Canon cameras available from the day I picked up a camera. First, as a commercial photographer, and in the last few years as a prolific wedding photographer. I think it’s safe to say that I accumulated a few thousand jobs using Canon cameras. I prefer Canon to any other brand for any given task. I feel very comfortable saying that the Canon R5 is the best Canon camera in the market today. But different photographers have different needs. Maybe you don’t need the best Canon camera, but the Canon camera that is best for you.
If you’re a photographer or filmmaker looking for the best Sony camera to buy, you’ve come to the right place. Sony has been a leader in the camera industry for years, producing high-quality cameras for professionals and enthusiasts alike. It would probably be hard to buy a bad Sony camera (YAY!).
So this article is more about choosing the camera that works for you and less about making sure you choose the best Sony camera, period.
Kron Technologies has announced two new high-speed cameras. The Chronos 4K12 (buy here) and Chronos Q12 (buy here). The new cameras are targeted at scientific and academic use, as well as cinematography and content creation.

Ricoh has announced the new Pentax WG-90. And true to form, it’s pretty much identical to its predecessor. In fact, I can’t see a single difference in the specs. The only change is that it has a Pentax logo instead of a Ricoh one.
The camera that’s been largely unchanged since 2017’s Ricoh WG-50 and sees no upgrades from the Ricoh WG-80 (buy here) whatsoever. It comes in either black or blue and will become available in early 2024.
This is a camera that Sony shooters have wanted for a long time, but now it’s finally here. Sony has announced the new Sony Alpha A9 III (buy here). While its resolution stays relatively low, by today’s standards, its sensor features a global CMOS shutter.
Global shutters are something that camera users from all brands have wanted ever since cameras ditched CCD sensors. The Sony A9 III has beaten everybody to the punch on bringing global shutters back, but that’s not the only trick up its sleeve.
Canon is gauging interest in reviving some of its most iconic camera models with a modern twist. According to The Federation of Independent Photographers, Canon is conducting market research to find out which classic Canon camera body people want to see reincarnated in digital form.
The four leading contenders for a retro-inspired EOS camera revival are the Canonet QL17, Canon P, Canon F-1, and the highly popular Canon AE-1.
Leica has launched its new M11-P Rangefinder Camera ($9195), which brings the latest technology to the iconic camera body. Leica’s M-series cameras have a rich history, particularly favoured by photojournalists for capturing iconic moments. The M11-P even looks like the original 1954 classic Rangefinder design, making it a very sleek little camera. Sadly though, it’s not still at 1954 prices.
The new Leica M11-P apparently continues the tradition by incorporating modern technology and design, with a few notable upgrades. It also marks a significant milestone as the world’s first camera to feature Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) technology, ensuring the credibility of digital content. This is super important in today’s world of AI image generation.
It’s not often that you get your hands on a Hasselblad, so when we received the Hasselblad X1D II 50C in the office, to say we were excited would be an understatement. According to Hasselblad, the medium format camera is described as compact, powerful, and enhanced, and we can attest to it.
