13.1mp | 5.0x | $799
Canon refreshes its large-sensor compact with a revised 1.5-inch-type sensor, faster processor, and a brighter, wider and longer zoom lens. With a sleeker shape, add-on EVF and grip, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II is Canon's answer to the do-everything, go-anywhere compact camera for the advanced and enthusiast photographer. While some of the criticisms with the initial model have been addressed, there are still some issues here and there. Do the upsides outweigh the downsides?

Not only does this high-res speed demon cram in plenty of desirable features, the Sony A6000 also shaves a couple of hundred dollars off its predecessor's price.

Samsung Galaxy NX Review

20.3mp | 3.1x | $1,399
Samsung makes a bold move with the convergence of an interchangeable lens camera and a smartphone in the Galaxy NX. This Android-powered camera features the same 20MP APS-C sensor as the NX300 and boasts similar impressive image quality at low to mid ISOs. A built-in EVF gives you a more traditional shooting experience, and the large 4.8-inch HD touchscreen is beautiful. With built-in Wi-Fi and 3G/4G LTE data capabilities, and all your favorite Android apps, the Samsung Galaxy NX should be the connected photographer's dream camera. Read our Samsung Galaxy NX review to find out if it's a dream come true.

Sony A3000 Review

20.1mp | 3.1x | $337
Some cameras are all about cramming in features; the Sony A3000 doesn't play that game. It's been pared down to the basics -- you get precisely what you need, and little more. But while rivals in its pricetag skimp on the basics with plastic lens mounts and years-old designs, Sony plays its own game, making an affordable camera that you'd actually want to own. But that's not to say that there are no compromises in the A3000. Read our in-depth Sony A3000 review, and find out whether Sony's hit the perfect balance between features and cost!

Fujifilm X-T1 Review

16.3mp | 3.1x | $1,649
The Fuji X-T1 is a great example of the retro genre. Don't let its surprisingly compact, vintage-styled body fool you, though: It's wrapped around cutting-edge technology, including a class-leading electronic viewfinder and Fuji's exclusive X-Trans sensor technology. The Fuji X-T1 also boasts blazing-fast performance and top-notch image quality, but is it the right camera for you? We roamed the continents in search of our answer. Read our in-depth Fuji X-T1 review, and find out if it's finally time to shelve your DSLR and join the mirrorless crowd!

One new optic, another gets a name: Fuji reveals updated X-mount lens roadmap
Featured Story 07/24, 14:43 EDT New lens options are on the way if you're a Fuji X-mount shooter, but the order in which they're going to arrive may not be quite what you were expecting if you read last spring's Fuji X-Mount roadmap. The company has just released an updated lens roadmap which adds one model, names and delays another, and defers a third whose name we... (more)

Featured Story 07/23, 11:57 EDT Parting, they say, is such sweet sorrow -- and yet part with the Sony RX100 III is what I must do.

07/25, 14:59 EDT There are a couple of awesome photographic disciplines, but being a concert photographer probably tops them all.

07/24, 09:00 EDT Your interchangeable-lens digital camera might be shockproof, freezeproof, weather-sealed and dustproof, but what use is that if every time you try to take a picture in a challenging environment, there's a layer of dust and grime on your filters or the front of your lens?

07/23, 14:13 EDT When photographing a scene with strong contrast, such as a landscape during the morning or evening light, a cityscape in the afternoon, or an interior scene with bright light coming in through the windows, most digital cameras' sensors are uncapable of capturing the full dynamic range of the scene.
