Though it doesn't deliver the best photo quality, the sum of the Olympus OM-D E-M10's design, performance and features add up to a nice upgrade from a point-and-shoot.
The TG-3 is just as tough as its predecessor, but gets a cool new macro trick and accessory, while the 24x compact zoom SH-1 gets styling and image stabilization to match the company's interchangeable lens cameras.
An excellent entry in the Micro Four Thirds universe, the Olympus PEN E-P5 should please a lot of folks, but it's also expensive given that it doesn't deliver best-in-class photo quality.
The Samsung Galaxy NX camera combines the company's smartphone savvy with its mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera skills. The result: a potentially no-compromise solution for photographers who crave connectivity, albeit at a steep price premium.
