Canon: 4K may not really matter, but you make it seem like it matters by insisting on not including it

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 | $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 | $729
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 | $929
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.
