Nikon D5600 Review
image of the Nikon D5600 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.1x | $697
The 24-megapixel Nikon D5600 DSLR delivers the same great image quality as its predecessor but now comes equipped with Nikon SnapBridge functionality. And while not without its limitations, sharing images has never been easier. Image quality is excellent and overall performance is good for an APS-C DSLR in its class, especially considering its affordable price tag, making the D5600 a compelling compact DSLR for budding photographers. Read our Nikon D5600 Review to see if this is the camera for you!


Canon EOS M6 Review
image of the Canon EOS M6 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.0x | $779
Combining a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, DIGIC 7 image processor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF in a compact, touch-friendly camera body, the Canon M6 is a nice alternative to the Canon EOS M5. Both cameras offer nearly identical performance and image quality, but the M6 eschews a built-in EVF and opts for a smaller, sleeker design with a lower pricetag. Is the M6 the best blend of performance and portability in Canon's expanded mirrorless lineup? Read our Canon M6 review to find out!


Panasonic GH5 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 digital camera
20.3mp | Non-Zoom | $1,998
The Panasonic GH5 is a wonderful successor to an already great hybrid still and video camera. With lots of new features and improvements both inside and out, the GH5 does a lot of live up to its $2,000 price tag. Sporting a new 20MP sensor, faster processor, a very deep buffer, dual UHS-II SD slots, 4K video up to 60p, 10-bit internal video recording, 6K Photo mode and much more, the Panasonic GH5 is well-deserving of that flagship moniker. The GH-series has made a name for itself among video creators, and that shows no sign of ending with the GH5. Photographers aren't left out, but video features really take center-stage with the GH5. For all the details, read our in-depth Panasonic GH5 review!


Sony A6500 Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A6500 digital camera
24.2mp | Non-Zoom | $1,398
What a camera! The Sony A6500 takes the best of the excellent A6300 which launched just eight months earlier, and adds several very important new features. Sports shooters in particular will love its much more generous buffer depth, and its new hybrid image stabilization system and touch-screen display functionality will be of benefit to all. But can they justify its significantly higher pricetag, or would you be better off with the A6300? Find out now in our in-depth Sony A6500 review!


Fujifilm X-T2 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-T2 digital camera
24.3mp | 3.1x | $1,599
The Fuji X-T2 is a professional powerhouse of the mirrorless world, with enough external controls to please any retro-fanatic. It offers top-notch weather sealing, and the autofocus engine has also been heavily amped from the original X-T1, bringing its C-AF chops more in line with its modern DSLR rivals. Under the hood, the Fuji X-T2 sports the latest-generation 24.3mp X-Trans sensor, and we found the resulting image quality both in the lab and out in the field to rival or top most any APS-C camera out there. See much more in our in-depth Fuji X-T2 Review!


Canon EOS M5 Review
image of the Canon EOS M5 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.0x | $979
The Canon EOS M5 marks a new chapter for Canon's mirrorless series. After a handful of decent, but unremarkable mirrorless offerings, the M5 combines a good 24-megapixel APS-C image sensor, fast DIGIC 7 processor and speedy Dual Pixel CMOS AF system inside a compact SLR-styled body, complete with a built-in electronic viewfinder. The Canon EOS M5 represents numerous "firsts" for a Canon EOS M camera, addressing the needs of more advanced photographers. Is the Canon EOS M5 also the first Canon EOS M camera we consider a solid option for enthusiast photographers? Read our Canon EOS M5 Review to find out.


Sony RX100 V Review
image of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V digital camera
20.1mp | 2.9x | $998
Sony's RX100-series created the large-sensor compact camera category. Now, the Sony RX100 V takes it to the next level with performance that can blow away most interchangeable-lens cameras, yet in a package that can slip almost unnoticed into your pants pocket. And thanks to that big image sensor, the RX100 V's 20-megapixel stills and 4K video offer top-notch quality to boot. But can that justify its steep pricetag? Find out now in our in-depth Sony RX100 V review!


Panasonic G85 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 digital camera
16.0mp | 5.0x | $898
Featuring numerous improvements over its predecessor, the Panasonic G85 is a great DSLR-style mirrorless camera. It uses a sharp 16-megapixel Four Thirds sensor and offers speedy performance and great image quality across its ISO range. Physically, the Panasonic G85 gains numerous upgrades as well, including robust weather-sealing, a quieter shutter, Dual I.S. 2 stabilization, plus its own optional battery grip. To learn more about its performance and features, read our Panasonic G85 review.


Panasonic FZ2500 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 digital camera
20.1mp | 20.0x | $1,120
The Panasonic FZ2500 improves upon its predecessor in numerous ways, including the new slightly longer built-in zoom lens and excellent touchscreen display. The camera's 24-480mm equivalent lens proves versatile, especially in conjunction with very good image stabilization technology. The Panasonic FZ2500 offers great image quality and a bevy of 4K video and photo features. How does the FZ2500's performance hold up in the lab and real world? Read our Panasonic FZ2500 review to find out.


Sony A99 II Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCA-A99 II digital camera
42.4mp | $3,198
The Sony A99 II is the Japanese company's first full-frame A-mount camera in over four years. It packs in a variety of new features including a 42.4-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, a hybrid 4D Focus AF system with 399 on-chip phase detection points, 4K UHD video recording and more. In addition to its high resolving capabilities, the Sony A99 II is also very fast, capable of shooting full-resolution RAW images at nearly a dozen frames per second. On paper, the A99 II is an excellent camera. How well does it actually work? Read our Sony A99 II review to find out.
