Nikon D5 Review
image of the Nikon D5 digital camera
20.8mp | $6,497
The Nikon D5, as a flagship DSLR, delivers high-end performance across the board. The ergonomic and well-designed camera body is both large and heavy, but with great size comes great power. With its 20.8-megapixel FX sensor and 153 AF points, the Nikon D5 is ready to capture high-quality, sharp images across a wide range of ISO sensitivities. The D5 is also the first full frame Nikon DSLR to include 4K UHD video recording, but make no mistake, this is a camera built for high-quality stills imaging performance and that's precisely what it delivers. Read all about it in our in-depth Nikon D5 review!


Canon G7X Mark II Review

20.2mp | 4.2x | $699
With an impressive 20-megapixel 1"-type sensor, a versatile 24-100mm equivalent zoom lens, and a faster DIGIC 7 image processor, the refreshed Canon G7X II is a very good compact camera that delivers good images across a wide range of ISOs. The Canon G7X II aimed to address the performance-related shortcomings of the original, and it appears to have accomplished that goal for the most part. There are still some downsides and disappointments, but overall, it's a rather pleasing premium compact camera. Read more about it our in-depth Canon G7X II review.


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
image of the Fujifilm X70 digital camera
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
image of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 digital camera
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
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A6300 digital camera
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!
