Nikon D600 Digital Camera Review

To cap off a busy year of high-profile product announcements, Nikon released the **D600**, their first "affordable" full-frame DSLR. At a smooth $2,099, it really isn't very cheap—but for non-professionals who want the excellent photo quality offered by a huge sensor, the D600 looks a lot more palatable than the D800 at $2,999. The D600 is a fantastic camera, and it doesn't feel like Nikon cut any corners to get the price down.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Tablet Review

Mostly forgotten due to a wave of high-profile tablet releases over the past several months, the latest full-size Galaxy tablet is firmly in the second-tier of its category. With a lower-resolution screen than most of its competitors, unimpressive battery life, and "meh" controls, this awkwardly named tablet will probably find itself on the discount racks for last minute holiday shoppers. It's fine if you can find it for a deal, but you might be better off getting a great 7-inch tablet, like the Google Nexus 7, for just $199.

Great Camcorders for Sports and Action

When it comes to capturing sports and action on video, there are a few qualities that are particularly important in a camcorder. We've rounded up some of our favorite models that offer long zoom lenses, smooth action, and sharp detail. Coaches and parents of athletes should take note.

And that's all for 2012 folks! Happy holidays, and see you all in 2013!
