Latest Camera Reviews

Sony A6500 Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A6500 digital camera
24.2mp | Non-Zoom | $1,298
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.

Sony RX100 V Review
image of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V digital camera
20.1mp | 2.9x | $998
Sony's RX100-series created the large-sensor compact camera category. Now, the Sony RX100 V takes it to the next level with performance that can blow away most interchangeable-lens cameras, yet in a package that can slip almost unnoticed into your pants pocket. And thanks to that big image sensor, the RX100 V's 20-megapixel stills and 4K video offer top-notch quality to boot. But can that justify its steep pricetag? Find out now in our in-depth Sony RX100 V review!

Panasonic G85 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 digital camera
16.0mp | 5.0x | $898

It uses a sharp 16-megapixel Four Thirds sensor and offers speedy performance and great image quality across its ISO range. Physically, the Panasonic G85 gains numerous upgrades as well, including robust weather-sealing, a quieter shutter, Dual I.S. 2 stabilization, plus its own optional battery grip. To learn more about its performance and features, read our Panasonic G85 review.

Panasonic FZ2500 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 digital camera
20.1mp | 20.0x | $1,088
The Panasonic FZ2500 improves upon its predecessor in numerous ways, including the new slightly longer built-in zoom lens and excellent touchscreen display. The camera's 24-480mm equivalent lens proves versatile, especially in conjunction with very good image stabilization technology. The Panasonic FZ2500 offers great image quality and a bevy of 4K video and photo features. How does the FZ2500's performance hold up in the lab and real world? Read our Panasonic FZ2500 review to find out.

image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 digital camera
20.1mp | 3.0x | $648
Panasonic's first 1-inch-type sensor premium compact camera, the Panasonic LX10, offers good performance from its 20.1-megapixel sensor and a very fast 24-72mm equivalent f/1.4-2.8 built-in lens. In addition to its solid imaging capabilities, the Panasonic LX10 also includes 4K UHD video recording and Panasonic's 4K Photo modes. All this at a rather competitive price point.

Canon 5D Mark IV Review
image of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV digital camera
30.4mp | $3,299
The Canon 5D Mark IV offers a ton of new features and performance upgrades, but keeps things modest and familiar with its similar yet refined external design. The 4th iteration of Canon's popular 5D series gains a new, higher-res sensor, a faster processor, a full touchscreen interface, built-in wireless connectivity and Cinema 4K video recording. This classic full-frame DSLR offers features and performance specs that make it suitable for a variety of uses, from weddings, landscapes and photojournalism to even sports, wildlife and, of course, videography. The full-frame camera market is growing more and more competitive, so how does the 5D Mark IV stack up against its competitors? Read more in our in-depth Canon 5D Mark IV review!

image of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II digital camera
20.4mp | Non-Zoom | $1,999
Back in 2013, the E-M1 made a big splash, and now the updated Olympus E-M1 Mark II makes an even bigger one. Packed with a new 20MP sensor, revamped AF system, faster image processor (two, in fact), 4K video and more, the E-M1 Mark II addresses the performance and C-AF shortcomings of the original and pushes the envelope even further to truly provide professional photographers and multimedia producers with a capable, high-performance DSLR alternative. Excellent image quality, top-notch performance and all-around fantastic build quality and features makes the E-M1 II worthy of consideration for those upgrading from the E-M1 or moving from another mirrorless camera or a DSLR.
