Canon PowerShot G16
While the Canon PowerShot G16 is better than the G15 and remains a nice enthusiast compact, its low-light photo quality disappoints for the money.
Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR
The Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR's features and performance are well beyond those of your average point-and-shoot megazoom, making it a fine choice for enthusiasts and as a family camera.
Canon EOS 6D ( Body Only)
The photo quality you get from the EOS 6D makes it well worth the upgrade over a consumer APS-C model, but between this and comparable or higher-end models it's a less obvious choice.
Fujifilm FinePix S4200 ( Black)
A nice feature set and a long lens make the Fujifilm FinePix S4200 one of the better megazoom cameras available for those on a budget.
Nikon Coolpix S6300 ( Red)
In the face of stiff competition, the Nikon Coolpix S6300 is an above average point-and-shoot made slightly better by a low price, simple operation, and nice features.
GE E1410SW ( Brown)
While not without its share of photo and performance issues, the GE E1410SW is a fine ultracompact megazoom snapshooter for those on a budget.
Lytro Light Field Camera 8GB ( Graphite)
The Lytro Light Field Camera rethinks photography with its unique hardware and fascinating image output. But if you're not a gadget-loving early adopter with deep pockets, steer clear until Lytro makes improvements.
Nikon Coolpix P7000
The Coolpix P7000 is a fine camera that lots of enthusiasts will appreciate for its smart shooting design, interesting feature set, and worthy photo quality.
Canon EOS 7D ( Body Only)
An excellent midrange dSLR, the Canon EOS 7D delivers for the money.
Nikon D3000 ( 18mm-55mm VR lens)
Its feature set is basic even by entry-level standards, but the Nikon D3000 delivers the photo quality and performance you expect when stepping up to a dSLR, with an optional interface that's very beginner friendly.
