DPReview week in review: April showers

When it rains, it pours - that was definitely the case this week, both outside our office windows (Thunder! In Seattle!) and in terms of content on the site. We posted our Sony a7 II review, got out shooting with Nikon's newest DX-format DSLR, and reviewed another Nikon crop sensor camera. Don't be an April fool - take a look back and get caught up. Read more

Reikan announces major update to FoCal AF tuning software

Reikan has announced a major update to its AF tuning software, FoCal. FoCal automates the process of calibrating your lens to your DSLR camera body, important - if not absolutely necessary - for critical focus when using fast lenses that yield shallow depth-of-field. Version 2 introduces the ability to check your copy of a lens against other users' test results. Read more

All-in-one: ONA Capri bag review

ONA is known for high-end camera bags and accessories that go big on style - and price. The Capri leather tote is no exception - it's an attractive bag with padded storage for photo gear that could easily double as a high-end purse. Can it replace a camera bag and a purse, and is it worth the price? Read our review

New service Mylio offers to synchronize your photographic life

Mylio, a subscription-based photo organization and storage program, is making a debut at this year's PhotoPlus Expo in New York. Created by MyLO, a Bellevue, Washington-based company, Mylio offers cross-device access to a user's collection of photos, without them having to change their storage structure.

A look back at the week: October 25, 2014

It's been a busy week here in the office as we're working hard on some post-Photokina reviews and preparing for PPE next week. We also got a serious dose of Pacific Northwest fall weather, and the rainy afternoons and evenings left us plenty of time to go poking around the corners of the internet for important (read: probably not really important) things that happened in the world of photography. Read more

Week in review: Photokina is in the air...

Daylight hours may be getting shorter as we enter September but the days are just packed. Photokina is a little over a week away and as expected, the announcements are beginning to ramp up. Last week, Sony's new QX cameras drummed up a lot of attention, IFA in Berlin produced a number of promising smartphone announcements, Canon's lenses got cheaper (sort of) and the bird was the word when the 2014 British Wildlife Photography Awards were announced. See what you may have missed in our look back at the last seven days

Week in review: 8 things we learned

It's been a busy week and as we head into a long weekend here in the US, it seemed like a good time to take a look back at everything that's happened in the past seven(ish) days. With new products from Fujifilm, Olympus and Ricoh, Photokina fever is definitely taking hold. And the week wasn't without an oddball moment or two, including the emergence of Sony's Asia-only 'perfume bottle selfie camera.' Relive the highs, the lows, the weird and the wonderful with us, in this slideshow.

In Photos: Cincinnati's impressive 'Old Main' public library

Cincinnati, Ohio's current downtown public library is grand in its own right as one of the busiest branches in the country. But its predecessor, demolished in 1955, was nothing short of stunning. Built in 1874, the 'Old Main' library was originally intended to be an opera house, with a towering atrium that instead became home to five tiers of stacked bookshelves. These photos capture the grandeur of the library and its popularity in its own time. See gallery
