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.
For a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.
The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (aka the EOS 1300D) hits the basics for a low price, but that's about it.
Very good photo quality for its class plus performance fast enough to capture kids and pets make the Nikon D3400 A solid choice for a first dSLR.
Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.
After some hands-on time with NIkon's first full-frame mirrorless, we love it -- warts and all.
An advanced compact for wide-angle and manual-photography fans, the Fujifilm X100F improves upon an already great camera with better autofocus performance and a fine-tuned design on top of its already excellent photo quality.
The Panasonic Lumix FZ300 might not be a huge update from its predecessor, the FZ200, but it's still one of the best in its class and a fantastic option for a single camera for photos and video -- even in the rain.
The Nikon D7200 is a great camera for the money, as long as you don't care about an extensive feature set.
The Leica D-Lux 5 compact camera is undeniably expensive. But its superior images, classic design and broad range of features go a long way towards justifying its price tag.
You'll likely be attracted to the Fujifilm FinePix HS30 EXR by its long zoom and high resolution, and you wouldn't be disappointed. It's packed with features, produces a great set of pictures and takes no time at all to get to grips with.
The highly versatile Leica V-Lux 2 superzoom is enjoyable to use and capable of capturing some fantastic shots. But this camera is basically the same as a Panasonic model that's almost half the price.
If you can't afford a J3, look this way. It may sport a lower-resolution sensor, coarser LCD and plastic body, but the S1 matches its more expensive siblings in many respects. Think with your head rather than your heart and you'll see it's a good deal with much to offer.
The Casio Exilim EX-H15 is definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a small camera with a long zoom, offering a great balance between performance and convenience.
But the company's long-anticipated full-frame model seems a small, expensive step for mirrorless.
Sony's taken a risk with the Alpha SLT-A55 camera, but it's paid off. The A55's innovative translucent-mirror technology makes for a blisteringly quick snapper that delivers excellent results.
The Canon EOS 1100D offers a great way for beginners to get into the world of digital-SLR photography, without needing to sell a lung. Its build quality could be better, though.
Despite a few shortcomings, the FZ45 superzoom offers excellent value. It resembles a dSLR put on a hot wash, but it's easier to use and packed full of the latest must-have features. It feels like we've seen much of what's on offer here before, however.
