Panasonic FZ300 Review

12.1mp | 24.0x | $498
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!


Olympus PEN-F Review

20.3mp | Non-Zoom | $1,199
The Olympus PEN-F checks-off a lot of boxes on our list for what makes a fantastic camera. It offers excellent image quality, great performance, fast autofocus, and stylish build quality. In a decidedly retro-inspired camera, there are tons of modern amenities, too, including a crisp EVF and a raft of in-camera image processing features. There's not a lot to dislike about the Olympus PEN-F, to be honest. There's no 4K video, no mic or headphone jacks, High-Res Shot mode is still rather tricky to use, and the battery life isn't all that spectacular. The price is also certainly a bit steep. However, in our opinion, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Find out all the details in our in-depth Olympus PEN-F review!


Ricoh GR II Review

16.2mp | Non-Zoom | $617
The Ricoh GR II updates its predecessor with Wi-Fi that works from most any device, a deeper raw buffer and wireless flash support, but keeps everything we loved in its predecessor. Are the tweaks enough to keep this large-sensored yet pocketable camera relevant in 2016? Find out now in our in-depth Ricoh GR II review!


Sony RX1R II Review

42.4mp | Non-Zoom | $3,298
The Sony RX1R II takes what made the original so remarkable -- compact size, full-frame sensor and stunning image quality -- and takes it up to a new, even more impressive level. The image quality, at both low and high ISOs, is just as fantastic, if not more so, thanks to the big resolution increase. Plus, the nifty variable low-pass filter technology adds flexibility and convenience. Autofocus gets a major upgrade, making the Sony RX1R II a much more capable camera in a wider variety of situations. And although its fixed 35mm lens and a $3,300 price tag can be cause hesitation, the Sony RX1R II stands out as one of the best, if not the best, premium compact cameras currently on the market. Read more in our in-depth Sony RX1R II review!


Canon G9X Review

20.2mp | 3.0x | $399
The Canon G9X is the smallest 1-inch sensor camera to date. Slip it in a pocket and you can forget it's even there, but pull it out and you have the great image quality of a 1-inch sensor on tap. And getting images onto your phone couldn't be easier, thanks to the in-camera Wi-Fi wireless networking. Are there still some rough edges? Yes, but the G9X is a very compelling camera nonetheless. Find out if it's right for you in our in-depth Canon G9X review!


Sony A7S II Review

12.2mp | Non-Zoom | $2,998
The Sony A7S II combines a redesigned camera body, an improved OLED electronic viewfinder, and improved autofocus system with the same excellent 12.2-megapixel full-frame sensor found in the original A7S. The numerous improvements and refinements help to make the Sony A7S II an excellent camera for photographers looking to capture stills and video in low light. With an ISO range up to 409,600 and 5-axis Image Stabilization built-in, this 4K-capable camera should be at the top of the list for photographers looking for a camera capable of capturing images in any light.
