Canon G9X Mark II Review
image of the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II digital camera
20.2mp | 3.0x | $449
The 20-megapixel Canon G9X II is a good compact camera with a 3x zoom lens. The DIGIC 7 image processor delivers good image processing and speedy performance, although the camera is not without flaws. The built-in lens struggles at wide-angle focal lengths, and the lens itself is not as wide as the competition. As before, the Mark II offers a minimal take on physical controls, focusing heavily on its touchscreen UI, which might be frustrating for some. The Canon G9X II takes what made the original a good pocket camera and adds a few upgrades along the way. With that said, some of the weaknesses of the original remain here in the new version. Read more in our Canon G9X II review!


Canon 6D Mark II Review
image of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II digital camera
26.2mp | $1,999
With a new 26-megapixel sensor and the latest DIGIC 7 image processor, the Canon 6D Mark II does a lot to improve upon the original 6D. Add in the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, enhanced viewfinder autofocus and a tilt/swivel touchscreen, and the 6D II is a very good all-around full-frame DSLR. However, its dynamic range performance is underwhelming and 4K video is absent. Does the Canon 6D II live up to its legacy? Find out in our Canon 6D Mark II Review!


Sony A9 Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A9 digital camera
24.2mp | Non-Zoom | $4,498
A flagship, professional-class full-frame mirrorless camera is here! The Sony A9 aims to dethrone the DSLR as the go-to choice for pro sports and action photographers. Sporting a new 24MP stacked sensor, a super-fast processor, and burst speeds up to 20fps with C-AF, the A9 is extremely fast and accurate. Image quality is excellent, and its burst rate and C-AF chops are some of the best we've ever seen. With a rugged build, better battery, more controls, and a price that undercuts flagship cams from Canon and Nikon, the Sony A9 looks promising all around. Time will tell if pros make the switch, but we think they should definitely consider it. Read more in our in-depth Sony A9 review!


Nikon D7500 Review
image of the Nikon D7500 digital camera
20.9mp | 5.0x | $1,247
It's no longer the DX-format flagship, but the Nikon D7500 is nevertheless an extremely capable camera, and comes with a pricetag that's much more affordable than the D500, despite including the same imaging pipeline and many of the same features. Its light and comfortable carbon fiber body packs in serious performance and great image quality, but should a few feature subtractions sway you in favor of its flagship sibling? Find out now in our in-depth Nikon D7500 review!


YI M1 Review
image of the YI M1 digital camera
20.2mp | 3.3x | $329
The Chinese made-and-designed YI M1 (or YI Camera) offers a quality, name-brand Four Thirds-format Sony Exmor sensor and a broadly-supported Micro Four Thirds lens mount at a jaw-dropping sub-$300 pricetag, and that's with a 12-40mm kit lens. So is there a catch, and if so what is it? You can find the answer to this and plenty else besides in our YI M1 review!


Fujifilm GFX Review
image of the Fujifilm GFX 50S digital camera
51.4mp | Non-Zoom | $6,499
The Fujifilm GFX 50S is equipped with a high-resolution medium format sensor which delivers excellent image quality across a wide range of situations. The 51-megapixel mirrorless camera is able to best its stiffest full-frame competition, although the GFX cannot keep up with full-frame cameras in terms of speed. Nor can the nascent GFX system compete with the established full-frame systems in terms of lens selection. Nonetheless, for users who demand the best image quality for well under $10K, the $6,500 Fujifilm GFX 50S is an excellent choice. Read our in-depth Fuji GFX 50S Review for all the details!


Nikon D5600 Review
image of the Nikon D5600 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.1x | $647
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!
