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-500
REVIEW

Pentax K-500 ( with 18-55mm DAL Lens, Black)

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.
