Click here to read our Google Pixel 2 Field Test Well, here's something we don't typically review on IR: smartphones. When I bought the iPhone 8 Plus last fall, I decided to do an extensive Field Test more or less as an excuse to thoroughly try out the camera.

Click here to read my Canon G1X III Field Test Part II As we saw in my first Field Test, the Canon G1X Mark III includes a larger APS-C sensor than its predecessor, but the tradeoff is that the lens is shorter and slower. In my just-published second Field Test, I look at the G1X III's overall shooting experience, including a look at metering, shooting modes and the new in-camera panorama mode is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
