The GF1 is the most complete Micro Four Thirds camera yet. If you're looking for the ideal entry-point into the format, the GF1 could be it.
As long as you don't need seriously high-resolution photos, video capture, or machine-gun-fast sports shooting, the Nikon D700 has everything you need in a pro full-frame camera for a reasonable price.
With its shocking pink design, you won't miss the 850SW. With its shockproof, waterproof and snow proof casing, you're not likely to accidentally destroy it either.
At 825 grams, the Nikon D300 is more than heavy, but if you're a keen photographer and have an eye for detail, the D300 will prove itself with great image quality shot after shot. However, first time photographers and social-snappers might find this dSLR slightly overwhelming.
There's tons to like about the Nikon D500, from its fast shooting and excellent image quality to its broad feature set and streamlined design. But it still falls short with its Live View autofocus and seriously subpar wireless file transfer and shooting operation.
It needs a little more refinement, but overall the Sony A7R II is a great camera for folks who need a high-resolution full-frame model in a more compact design than a dSLR.
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.
We wouldn't complain if the 240HS had a longer zoom lens or was able to capture HD video at a higher frame rate, but the Canon IXUS 240HS proves that quality can easily overcome quantity.
Panasonic's FZ150 is king of the superzooms, sporting a long lens matched up with excellent image and video quality.
The LX5 almost offers everything you could want in a camera of its class, like fast performance and an excellent lens, but just misses full marks due to inconsistent JPEG processing.
This is a great little compact camera equipped with pretty much everything you could ask for, like HD video and a stylish body, so we've awarded it our Editors' Choice award.
The Canon IXUS 800 IS utilises image stabilisation and high ISO settings to produce impressive pictures from an attractive compact camera.
Excellent photo quality and performance and a system with tiny, fast prime lenses make the Olympus PEN-F a great camera for street photography.
A respectable update to its very popular A6000 mirrorless interchangeable-camera model, the Sony A6300 remains great but also retains some of the drawbacks of its predecessor.
The fixed LCD and lack of built-in wireless file transfer support may make some people cross it off their short list, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II should please any Canon fan looking for speed.
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.
Sony Alpha ILCE-7 (A7) is a great alternative to similarly priced entry-level full-frame dSLRs, as long as you don't need speedy continuous shooting.
The Sony NEX-5R is a beautifully built camera that you'll have great fun using. The articulated screen puts it one step ahead of its competitors, and the innovative downloadable apps will expand its feature set over time. All in all, a great buy if you can afford it, but the reasons to upgrade from the NEX-5N aren't entirely convincing.
