In February 2019, Canon announced the development of a further six Full-Frame, RF lenses for use on their new EOS R system. From the roadmap that Canon supplied, we understand that these are going to be released at some point within 2019 and cover a wide range of focal lengths, suiting the needs to different photographers / videographers. Read Canons press release below to learn more!

This announcement comes in conjunction to the announcement of the latest addition to the EOS R system; the EOS RP. You can read more about this by reading our hands-on first look.


2019 is shaping up to be a big year for photography, there have already been a number of big launches as well as some smaller ones that you may have missed. We wanted to give a roundup of all the big launches that have already happened this year.


Introducing the brand new Fujifilm X-T30, a brand new compact, lightweight mirrorless camera from Fujifilm. Like the X-T20, this is a great lifestyle camera, perfect for travel or everyday use. It borrows a lot from the X-T3 but it has a lot of its own great features as well.

Introducing the brand new Canon EOS RP, a brand new compact, lightweight mirrorless camera from Canon. It’s part of the RF eco system, just like the EOS R and we were lucky enough to head to Canon HQ to check it out.


The date is set, the venue is ready and the subjects look beautiful - but how you light your image is everything. 

Here at Park Cameras we’ve been finding out how you can realise your vision by talking to wedding photographer and Sony Ambassador  Kate Hopewell-Smith who shares a variety of different tips you can put into practice.


We were lucky enough to spend some time with the Panasonic Lumix S1 and the standard kit lens, the 24-105mm f/4. With 6 stops of image stabilisation and a whole host of other features on offer, we couldn’t wait to get shooting.

Introducing the brand new Panasonic Lumix S1, not only a brand new, full frame mirrorless camera but a brand new system from Lumix, the ‘S’ system. We were lucky enough to be able to take the S1 out for the week to see if it can live up to the hype.


The Olympus OM-D E-M1X has just been announced, but how is it different from previous models? Our handy comparison table looks at the technical specification of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X vs the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II.

Introducing the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X, a brand new line of OM-D camera. Offering impressive features including world leading image stabilisation and a pro design, we look at the key features of this new camera.


Tamron have confirmed that their firmware launched at the end of 2018 will work for the Nikon Z6 as well as the Z7.

Sigma have this week confirmed which lenses are compatible with the Canon EOS R. And it's great news for EOS R users who are looking at their lens options, especially given the list includes Sigma’s Art and Sports range.

Pictured above is the Canon EOS R with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art lens. A very nice, sharp combo that is perfect for portraits.


Nikon announced the launch of the NIKKOR 14-30mm f4 S line lens at CES 2019. Using the Z Mount, it is compatible with their full frame mirrorless Z Series. The sample images provided were simply breathtaking - so much so we couldn't resist sharing them with you!
