Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100
REVIEW

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100

With really good photo and video quality, a great set of features and generally class-leading performance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is probably one of our favorite compact cameras ever. It's not for the inexperienced, though.

Olympus PEN E-PL7
REVIEW

Olympus PEN E-PL7 ( with 14-42mm Lens, Black)

A likeable interchangeable-lens model, the Olympus PEN E-PL7's overall package makes an attractive alternative to an advanced compact and has quite a bit to offer as a first ILC.

Canon EOS Rebel T5
REVIEW

Canon EOS Rebel T5 ( with 18-55mm Lens)

While it's a perfectly fine camera when you're making the jump from a point-and-shoot, there are better choices than the Canon EOS Rebel T5.

Sony Alpha 6000
REVIEW

Sony Alpha 6000 ( with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens, Silver)

Despite small annoyances, the Sony Alpha 6000 is a great overall camera for more advanced photographers who want something smaller than a dSLR, especially if they need the continuous- shooting speed.

Olympus OM-D E-M10
REVIEW

Olympus OM-D E-M10 ( with 14-42mm Lens, Silver)

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.

Fujifilm X-E2
REVIEW

Fujifilm X-E2 ( with 18-55mm XF Lens, Black)

It delivers great images and is still fun to shoot with, but the Fujifilm X-E2 isn't a no-brainer upgrade over the X-E1 and other cameras outfeature it.

Nikon D610
REVIEW

Nikon D610 ( with 24-85mm lens)

Though competition's increasing for low-end full-frame cameras, the Nikon D610 holds its own; that said, while slightly faster than its predecessor it's not a whole lot different.
