Canon G5X Review
image of the Canon PowerShot G5 X digital camera
20.2mp | 4.2x | $749
The Canon PowerShot G5X takes what made the G7X a solid compact camera and adds numerous new design and usability features. By adding an OLED electronic viewfinder, a front grip, a flash hot shoe, and more controls, the G5X is an enthusiast-oriented compact camera that provides solid, dependable performance in a well-designed camera body. While the Canon G5X doesn't bring many new performance features to the table, it continues where the G7X left off and should prove to satisfy many experienced photographers looking for a fixed-lens compact camera.

Nikon J5 Review

20.8mp | 3.0x | $497
The Nikon J5 takes the Nikon 1 J-series cameras in a positive new direction. Utilizing a new 20.8-megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, the J5 captures high-quality images across a wide range of ISO speeds. Its 171-point phase-detect autofocus system is quick and accurate and the new tilting touchscreen display makes selecting a focus point fast and easy. Easy-to-use, but capable, the Nikon J5 is a great compact interchangeable lens camera that should appeal to new and experienced photographers alike. Read more in our-depth Nikon J5 review!


Canon EOS M3 Review

24.2mp | 3.1x | $479
The Canon EOS M3 brings significant and welcomed improvements over the original EOS M model. There's a better sensor, better AF performance and better ergonomics to suit the more advanced photographer. Image quality is very good as is high ISO performance, thanks to the higher-res sensor and faster image processor. The Canon EOS M3 is undoubtedly a much improved, more advanced mirrorless camera than the original M, but it still feels lacking in some important areas. Is this the mirrorless camera many Canon fans were hoping for? Click here to find out in our in-depth Canon EOS M3 review!


Panasonic G7 Review

16.0mp | 3.0x | $598
With the Panasonic G7, the company offers up a whole lot of camera at a really great price. Ostensibly a camera aimed at the family documentarian, the Lumix G7 is also a whole lot more than just a family camera, with great features like super-swift autofocus, a really great viewfinder and tilt/swivel LCD, in-camera Wi-Fi and more. And the ability to easily extract high-resolution stills from ultra high-def 4K video makes it easy to get the shot, no matter your reflexes. Should you buy one? Find out now in our in-depth Panasonic G7 review!


Panasonic GX8 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 digital camera
20.3mp | Non-Zoom | $998
With its new 20-megapixel sensor, impressive AF performance, high quality 4K video, as well as excellent, robust wireless connectivity, the Panasonic GX8 wears a lot of hats, so to speak. It's perfectly situated for travel and street photography, capturing lots of fast action and high quality video. With this combination of features and performance, the Panasonic GX8 certainly deserves consideration if you're in the market for an all-around, enthusiast-level mirrorless camera.
