Sony RX10 III Review

20.1mp | 25.0x | $1,498
Sony created the large-sensor, long-zoom camera segment, and now it provides its object of desire. The Sony RX10 III is a bright-lensed, beautifully-built DSLR alternative with triple the zoom reach of its sibling, the RX10 II. Jam-packed with features and offering great image quality, there's no question it's a heck of a camera, but it has a pricetag to match. Is it worthy of its considerable cost? Find out in our in-depth Sony RX10 III review!


Pentax K-1 Review

36.4mp | $1,797
For its first-ever full-frame DSLR, Ricoh offers up the Pentax K-1 -- and what a beauty it is! With a superb design, features aplenty, great image quality and a solid, comfortable all-weather body, the K-1 is a no-brainer upgrade for Pentaxians looking to go full-frame. But what if you're shooting a rival system: Would this awesome-yet-affordable full-frame camera be right for you? Find out now in our in-depth Pentax K-1 review!


Fujifilm X70 Review

16.3mp | Non-Zoom | $699
Say hello to the little brother of Fuji's highly popular X100-series of fixed prime lens cameras! Sharing the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor as the X100T, the Fuji X70 offers a wider 28mm equivalent f/2.8 lens and a more compact body. The camera delivers very good JPEG image quality and impressive high ISO results, but it does fall short in terms of versatility and agility. Is this the compact camera for you? Read our in-depth Fujifilm X70 review to find out.


Panasonic ZS100 Review

20.1mp | 10.0x | $698
A new entry into the compact travel zoom camera market has arrived. The Panasonic ZS100 offers a distinct blend of a 1"-type sensor and 10x zoom lens in a relatively compact camera body. It's versatile, but does this 4K-capable travel camera offer good image quality and performance? Read our in-depth Panasonic ZS100 review to find out!


Sony A6300 Review

24.2mp | 3.1x | $998
The Sony A6300 serves as the follow-up to one of the most popular cameras in recent years, the A6000. Given the predecessor's top marks, it's a tough act to follow. Sony's pulled it off, though, packing in so many new features and performance improvements into the A6300. Featuring better build quality, a new high-speed sensor, vastly improved AF and burst performance, better image quality and advanced video features, the Sony A6300 is a significant upgrade. Is it finally time to downsize from that DSLR? Read our in-depth Sony A6300 review to find out!


Pentax K-3 II Review
image of the Pentax K-3 II digital camera
24.4mp | $850
The Pentax K-3 II keeps almost everything we loved from the superb K-3, then replaces the popup flash with an in-camera GPS -- not just for automatic geotagging, but also for freezing star-trails in astrophotography. As if that wasn't cool enough, its Pixel Shift Resolution tech takes detail to the next level for razor-sharp photos. But what are the drawbacks, and should you buy this camera or the original K-3? Find out now in our in-depth Pentax K-3 II review!


Canon 80D Review
image of the Canon EOS 80D digital camera
24.2mp | 7.5x | $1,199
More evolutionary than revolutionary, the Canon 80D builds upon foundation laid out by the 70D and its excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. Sporting a new, higher-resolution 24MP sensor, a faster processor and a beefed-up 45-point AF system, the Canon 80D performs very well on multiple fronts, including better dynamic range, better higher ISO performance and more versatile autofocus. Video see some improvements, but the 80D leaves out a few important features and capabilities. Overall, the Canon 80D is an excellent multimedia DSLR, but should it earn a spot in your camera bag? Read our in-depth Canon 80D review to find out!


Panasonic FZ300 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 digital camera
12.1mp | 24.0x | $598
Two years after the FZ200 impressed us with its 24-600mm equivalent lens and strong performance, the Panasonic FZ300 has arrived with a redesigned body and a suite of new features. Unchanged are the 12.1-megapixel sensor and the 25x optical zoom lens, while new upgrades include 4K video and 4K Photo features in addition to numerous other improvements. Is this the high-zoom all-in-one camera you've been waiting for? Read our Panasonic FZ300 review to find out!
