Fujifilm X100T Review

16.3mp | Non-Zoom | $1,090
Overall, the Fuji X100T is a lot like the earlier X100S. It's not vastly improved over the earlier model, particularly in terms of the imaging pipeline, but it does offer a handful of physical and cosmetic improvements, especially in terms of better controls and a larger LCD. With the same sensor, lens and image processor, the much-lauded image quality of the X100S remains in this updated model. Performance and speed factors remain virtually unchanged, with both good points and bad. All told, it's not a massive upgrade to the X100S, but if you're looking for a cool, compact rangefinder-esque street shooter, the Fujifilm X100T is a great choice.

Fujifilm X30 Review

12.0mp | 4.0x | $499
Remaining largely the same under-the-hood compared to its X20 predecessor, the Fujifilm X30 brings most of its improvements to the exterior: an EVF over the flawed optical viewfinder, a larger, higher-res tilting LCD screen, updated styling and controls, and Wi-Fi. All combined, the Fuji X30 is a more capable, easier to use camera. Maintaining its impressive image quality chops and performance capabilities, the X30 brings welcomed improvements to Fuji's unique X-Trans premium compact camera lineup. Read more about the X30 in our in-depth Fujifilm X30 review!


Sony A5100 Review

24.3mp | 3.1x | $575
One of the smallest, lightest and most affordable mirrorless cameras currently offered with an APS-C sensor, the Sony A5100 is an intriguing proposition, as it shares the same imaging pipeline as the mega-popular Sony A6000. The lack of an EVF and external mode dial will surely rule out some enthusiast shooters, but the svelte size and price combined with the very good image quality and feel in the hands will appeal to many of you more interested in a smaller size versus a more advanced feature set. Indeed, if image quality and portability are your primary deciding factors in a camera purchase, the Sony A5100 should be a candidate for your short-list of models to consider. Read our in-depth Sony A5100 review for all the details!


Canon G7X Review
image of the Canon PowerShot G7 X digital camera
20.2mp | 4.2x | $649
With the 20.2-megapixel Canon G7X, Sony finally has a fight on its hands in the enthusiast compact camera market. The Canon G7X takes on its rival's popular RX100-series cameras with much the same body and sensor sizes, and yet somehow Canon has managed to pack in not only more zoom reach, but also a brighter maximum aperture as well! But does the Canon G7X have what it takes to finally slay the RX100, or will it have an Achilles heel of its own? Find out now in our in-depth Canon G7X review!


Panasonic LX100 Review

12.8mp | 3.1x | $679
Panasonic's first large-sensor, enthusiast compact camera is here, and it's a beauty! The 12.8-megapixel Panasonic LX100 opts for a slightly larger body than most rivals, but that also frees up room for the same generous sensor size used in the company's Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Paired with a bright zoom lens and a powerful processor, the result is an enthusiast-grade compact that takes really great photos, day or night! Does the LX100 belong at the top of your wish-list? Find out now in our detailed Panasonic LX100 review!
