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.
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.
For a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.
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.
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 Pansonic ZS100 offers great blend of quality, size and features for people who want better photos and are willing to trade off a little quality for a lot of lens.
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.
Very good photo quality for its class plus decent performance make the Nikon D3300 A solid choice for a first dSLR.
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 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.
Canon continues its habit of creating well-made cameras with a select few features on board. There's nothing earth-shattering on offer here -- just a solid, simple camera that takes lovely, stabilised pictures and movies. It's all the better for it
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.
The Leica M9 isn't a point and shoot and it isn't the kind of camera you'd usually take on safari to snap the roaming wildebeest. But if you did, you'd record your trip in stunning detail with the most vibrant colours you've ever committed to pixel or print. You'll pay a hefty price for the privilege, but if you can afford it, you'll be very happy with the results.
The Samsung ST200F is extraordinary value for money. It reliably produces vibrant, accurate results that are a true reflection of the original subject matter. The inclusion of built-in Wi-Fi makes it even more tempting and will help all but the most picky of buyers to overlook its very few minor flaws.
The A300 is not the only budget dSLR with live view, and its 10-megapixel resolution is pretty ordinary too. It feels crude and plasticky and the live view 'solution' is hardly elegant. But it is very practical, and in fact the whole camera has an appealing chunky, down-to-earth straightforwardness
Nikon has proved once and for all that there are more important things in life than megapixels. With consistently sharp images, great colours and a better-than-average movie mode, the £379 Coolpix P7100 has plenty to recommend it.
The Sony Alpha DSLR-A390 is alright, but it's really just last year's tech after the shallowest of makeovers
