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

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

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!


Olympus PEN-F Review
image of the Olympus PEN-F digital camera
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
image of the Ricoh GR II digital camera
16.2mp | Non-Zoom | $620
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!
