Canon PowerShot SX60 HS
REVIEW

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

Canon's PowerShot SX60 HS is one of the top bridge cameras in its class thanks to improved design, useful features, excellent photos and video and -- of course -- its really wide and really long lens.

Olympus PEN E-PL7
REVIEW

Olympus PEN E-PL7 ( Body Only, 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.

Canon PowerShot N100
REVIEW

Canon PowerShot N100

The Canon PowerShot N100's photos and performance are a step in the right direction for point-and-shoots, but the N100 design needs a bit more work and perhaps fewer novelties.

Fujifilm FinePix S1
REVIEW

Fujifilm FinePix S1

The only weather-resistant 50x megazoom camera around, the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a fast, flexible camera that comes up a little short in low-light photo quality.

Olympus Stylus XZ-2
REVIEW

Olympus Stylus XZ-2 ( Black)

The Olympus Stylus XZ-2 iHS is an excellent bright lens enthusiast compact. At this point, though, you should skip it at its full $600 price.

Pentax K-50
REVIEW

Pentax K-50 ( with 18-55mm WR Lens, White)

A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance.
