PHOTO4LESS Canon M100 Final Thoughts

"Camera snobs."

It is getting plenty of use taking pictures of our new little one. The kit lenses in the bundle are more than adequate. The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. But white balance flips out often. Low light is extraordinarily good.

Sony ILCE9B First Impressions

"I LOVE the Sony ILCE9B."
