image of Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D) digital camera Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (EOS 100D) 18.0 3.06x $615.73
The smallest DSLR we've ever reviewed still packs a punch Pairing the compact, lightweight body of a mirrorless camera with the performance and image quality of a digital SLR, the Canon SL1 DSLR provides, in many ways, the best of both worlds. And while it appears to be just a miniaturized version of the Rebel T5i, the SL1 proves to be much more than that, offering an advanced Hybrid CMOS II AF system that significantly improves Live View and Movie shooting. This small DSLR takes great still pictures and boasts impressive video skills, plus it comes kitted with the better-than-average EF-S 18-55mm IS STM lens, which is sharp, smooth and virtually silent.

image of Olympus PEN E-PL5 digital camera Olympus PEN E-PL5 16.1 3.00x $599.99
Incredible image quality in an affordable, pint-sized package The compact and lightweight Olympus E-PL5 inherits the exceptional 16-megapixel sensor from the groundbreaking OM-D E-M5, one of our all-time favorite compact system cameras. The image quality we saw from the speedy E-PL5 proved to be nothing less than stellar -- demonstrating accurate colors, an impressive dynamic range and tons of detail. Unfortunately you have to navigate through a maddening maze of menus to uncover the camera's full photographic potential, as well as deal with such limitations as poor AF motion tracking and run-of-the-mill (though Full 1080p HD) video quality. But considering that the Olympus E-PL5 produces images that rival those from much more expensive DSLRs and CSCs, the compromises may be only a small price to pay. Check out our Olympus E-PL5 review to find out if it's the perfect camera for you, or buy one here. (minimize)

image of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 digital camera Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 20.2 3.60x $467.42
Sony RX100 takes the premium pocket camera crown! We were so impressed with the Sony RX100's specs, we had to rush and give it a complete review in a hurry to see if it truly measured up. We were not disappointed. The Sony RX100's 1-inch-type, 20.2-megapixel sensor, f/1.8, 3.6x lens, and small body combine to create a new pocket digital camera benchmark. Sony didn't skimp on special features for amateurs or enthusiasts, either. Click here to see our Sony RX100 review! (minimize)

The long-zoom "everywhere" camera just got smaller
Iconic and capable at the same time, the PowerShot 520 HS represents quite an evolution in Canon's classic ELPH design. Duplicating the same diminutive shape and size as its spiritual predecessors, the Canon 520 offers a 12x zoom ranging from 28-336mm with optical image stabilization. Its 3-inch LCD has a higher resolution of 461K-dots, and its simple control set and intelligent exposure modes make getting good stills and videos easy. Click here for our review of the Canon 520 HS!

image of Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II digital camera Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II 13.1 5.00x $722.71
Canon's flagship large-sensor PowerShot goes sleeker, faster and brighter
Canon refreshes its large-sensor compact with a revised 1.5-inch-type sensor, faster DIGIC 6 image processor, and a brighter f/2-3.9 lens that's also both wider and longer: 24-120mm in 35mm equivalence. With a sleeker shape, add-on EVF and grip, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, Canon's flagship PowerShot G1 X Mark II aims to be the versatile do-everything, go-anywhere compact camera for the advanced and enthusiast photographer. While some of the issues with the initial model have been fixed -- more versatile lens, faster processor and closer macro shooting -- there are still some issues here and there. Do the upsides outweigh the downsides? Click here for our Canon G1 X Mark II review! (minimize)

image of Canon PowerShot G15 digital camera Canon PowerShot G15 12.1 5.00x $411.74
A major step forward for Canon's flagship premium compact
Canon's PowerShot G-series cameras were some of the first premium compact cameras to really grab the attention of the professional photographer and the amateur shooter alike. With the PowerShot G15, Canon takes a huge step forward by incorporating a fast 5x optical zoom lens with a maximum aperture that ranges from f/1.8 at wide to f/2.8 at tele. The camera also boasts a 12-megapixel, 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor to produce sharper images and full 1080p HD video recording (finally). And at the heart of the Canon G15 resides a ton of advanced photographic controls, including RAW image capture. One significant downgrade from its predecessor, the G12, however, is Canon's decision to replace the articulating LCD monitor with a fixed one, ostensibly to slim the G15's dimensions.

image of Canon PowerShot G16 digital camera Canon PowerShot G16 12.1 5.00x $505.16
A boost of speed and connectivity for Canon's flagship premium compact
Canon's PowerShot G-series cameras have been extremely popular with both pro photographers and amateur shooters alike thanks to lots of manual controls, customizable settings and buttons and, last but not least, great image quality. With the PowerShot G16, the big story is speed: fast AF, fast continuous shooting and now Full HD video at up to 60p thanks to its new DIGIC 6 processor. While the sensor has the same 12-megapixel resolution, it is now backside illuminated for better high ISO performance. The G16 also includes built-in Wi-Fi, and a number of other new features and enhancements. Otherwise, the Canon G16 shares many of the same specs as the G15, such as the same f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens, excellent macro mode and non-articulating LCD monitor.

High-quality travel zoom appeals to enthusiasts and novices alike
There's nothing like a pocket travel zoom digital camera when you want to get creative shot on vacation. The PowerShot SX260 HS is Canon's best attempt yet at meeting the needs of both the point-and-shooter and the enthusiast photographer, regardless of the destination. Its 20x zoom has great optical quality, and combined with its 12-megapixel sensor the Canon SX260's image quality is good enough to output a 16 x 20-inch print! What with the built-in GPS, we wish it had a little better battery life, but overall the Canon SX260 is looking pretty good. Click here for our Canon SX260 HS review! (minimize)

image of Canon PowerShot SX50 HS digital camera Canon PowerShot SX50 HS 12.1 50.00x $398.34
Superzoom, super pictures, super simple to use
Canon has outdone itself once again. Boasting a whopping 50x optical zoom range (24-1200mm equivalent) and excellent image quality for its class, the Canon SX50 may not only be the company's finest megazoom offering to date, but also the best megazoom we've ever tested. Improved image stabilization and advanced features such as RAW capture vault it over its predecessor, though it does suffer some of the same expected shortcomings, including poor low-light autofocus performance and fuzzy images at ISO 800 and above.

The Fuji X-T1 wraps cutting-edge technology in a deliciously-retro body, including a class-leading viewfinder and seriously impressive image quality
The Fuji X-T1 is a great example of the retro genre. Don't let its surprisingly compact, vintage-styled body fool you, though: It's wrapped around cutting-edge technology, including a class-leading electronic viewfinder and Fuji's exclusive X-Trans sensor technology. The Fuji X-T1 also boasts blazing-fast performance and top-notch image quality, but is it the right camera for you? We roamed the continents in search of our answer.

With dangerous good looks and serious skills, this enthusiast compact shoots to thrill
Sleek, retro-styled and a little dangerous looking, the Fuji XF1 may just be the James Bond of enthusiast pocket cameras. With its compact size, quality build and luxurious feel, the XF1 just begs to be used. The slick 4x optical zoom lens (with a f/1.8 max aperture!) is of the manual variety, and when you twist it open, the camera turns on ready for action. The Fuji XF1 borrows the same 12-megapixel, 2/3-inch-type EXR CMOS sensor from the X10, as well as the unique EXR shooting modes that go with it that increase its low-light capabilities and dynamic range. Overall, it's a fast and fun shooter with a ton of customizability that should appeal to enthusiasts, while its good looks make it an object of desire for gadget geeks and fashionistas alike.

image of Leica X Vario (Typ 107) digital camera Leica X Vario (Typ 107) 16.2 2.55x $2,206.49
Luxury compact zoom for those willing to pay a premium for form, function and fantastic images
The Leica X Vario proved to be more than just an X2 with a fixed-lens zoom, and certainly adds up to more than the sum of its parts. The camera's body design and controls drip with precision engineering, making it a complete joy to hold and shoot. Though the 28-70mm equivalent Vario-Elmar zoom lens may not be the brightest in the world -- providing max. apertures of just f/3.5-6.4 -- it's nonetheless incredibly sharp corner-to-corner. Combine the lens with an excellent 16.2 megapixel, APS-C sensor and nimble processor, and the X Vario delivers tremendous image quality with incredibly accurate colors, with its high ISO results featuring a pleasing film-like grain. This model may be one of the least expensive "Made in Germany" Leica cameras, but it's still a pricey proposition at US$2,850, making it a luxury compact for a photographer willing to pay a premium for form, function and fantastic photos.

Nikon does it again with the Coolpix P510!
Sometimes product categories are defined by one popular line, and the Nikon P510 continues the tradition of excellence in ultrazoom digital cameras, with a very wide, very long zoom lens and impressive print quality. With a zoom that ranges from 24 to 1,000mm equivalent, it has a tendency to make you see the world differently, allowing you to realize shots you hadn't before imagined. With great handling, a nice grip, an articulated LCD and built-in GPS, the Nikon P510 offers more than ever before. Click here for our Nikon Coolpix P510 review! (minimize)

Revamped flagship enthusiast digicam scores big on design and image quality
It's taken three tries but Nikon has finally produced a flagship Coolpix camera that stacks up favorably to its top competitors, boasting an upgraded 12-megapixel sensor and a fast 7.1x zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.0. Nikon removed the optical viewfinder from the Coolpix P7700, but we actually see this as a plus, especially since the 3-inch vari-angle LCD screen is easy to view and allows you to compose in tight spots. Sans viewfinder, the Nikon P7700's design is more compact, comfy and classic than its predecessor. Ultimately, it comes down to image quality and the P7700 delivers sharp still images and Full HD videos -- with just a few quirks -- and produces large, high-quality prints at lower ISOs.

High-end features, performance and affordability come together in this versatile mirrorless camera.
Olympus combines the enthusiast-oriented E-M5 and professional E-M1 cameras into the lightweight and affordable Olympus E-M10. With the E-M1's powerful image processor, a similar AA-filterless sensor and the E-M5's compact design, the E-M10 manages to bring impressive class-leading image quality, dynamic range, and excellent high ISO performance in a lightweight design down to an entry-level price point. With improved HD video quality, built-in Wi-Fi and a raft of customizable functions, dials and buttons, the E-M10 is great for entry-level shooters and enthusiasts alike.

image of Olympus PEN E-PM2 digital camera Olympus PEN E-PM2 16.1 3.00x $499.99
Surprisingly sophisticated step up from point-and-shoot cameras
Like its big brother -- the PEN E-PL5 -- the Olympus E-PM2 captures stunning, detailed images, thanks to the 16-megapixel sensor it borrows from the top-rated Olympus E-M5. However, the E-PM2 is smaller, lighter and less expensive than the E-PL5, and it relies primarily on touchscreen controls that make it an ideal option for photographers transitioning from point-and-shoots into a compact, interchangeable-lens camera system. The lack of a physical Mode dial and dedicated settings buttons may be a turn off to some enthusiasts, however, the PEN E-PM2 still offers an impressive variety of advanced photographic capabilities that surpasses what some higher-end DSLRs and CSCs can offer. Though a little lacking in action AF and video recording performance, the Olympus E-PM2 mainly overcomes its limitations by delivering fantastic image quality at such an affordable price.

image of Olympus Stylus 1 digital camera Olympus Stylus 1 12.0 10.70x $668.26
A new class of enthusiast long-zoom compacts is born
We've seen bridge cameras and long zooms for less money, even one with a constant f/2.8 aperture (the Panasonic FZ200) but most all have come with 1/2.3" sensors at their core. The Olympus Stylus 1 comes with the 1/1.7" sensor and the difference in image quality and low light performance is significant. And while the sensor is less than half the surface area of the acclaimed Sony RX10 bridge camera, the Stylus 1 is much smaller and much more affordable, putting it in a class by itself.

image of Olympus Stylus XZ-2 digital camera Olympus Stylus XZ-2 12.0 4.00x $438.87
Same serious lens but new serious upgrades for serious photographers
With the Olympus XZ-2, the company upgrades its top-of-the-line enthusiast compact camera with a new 12-megapixel 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor, but thankfully keeps its predecessor's fast and bright f/1.8-2.5 iZUIKO 4x zoom lens. We found the pairing of these features helps the XZ-2 produce great images for its class, especially at low ISOs. Add in a new 3-inch articulating LCD touchscreen, fast-and-accurate autofocus, a nifty dual-purpose front control ring, and a ton of advanced photographic features such as PASM controls and RAW capture, and the Olympus XZ-2 makes for a near-ideal, albeit pricey, everyday or back-up camera for serious photographers.

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 12.1 24.00x $500.64
A superzoom camera with a super bright lens
Panasonic pumped some new excitement into its acclaimed superzoom line when it paired a Leica-branded f2/.8 lens with the Panasonic FZ200. That's a constant f/2.8 max aperture across the entire 24x optical zoom range, which is a rarity among long zooms these days and -- teamed with the camera's excellent AF system -- it proved to perform well in low-light and high shutter speed situations. There's a lot more to like about the FZ200, including a 12 fps, high-res burst mode and Full HD 1080p video recording (at up to 60 fps!). And advanced photographic controls such as manual exposure and focusing, as well as RAW image capture, mean it's a viable alternative for enthusiasts wanting a lightweight, everyday alternative to a heavy, bulky DSLR with multiple zoom lenses (at least in good light), and a serious step up for beginners wanting more zoom range. The FZ200's relatively small sensor does force some compromises on image quality (like almost every other camera in its class), but the camera's convenience and versatility make it one of the best superzooms on the market.

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 16.1 3.00x $490.00
There's nothing micro about the performance of this compact, lightweight digital camera
The Panasonic Lumix G5 takes the highlights from Panasonic's well-regarded G-series of Micro Four Thirds digital cameras and rolls them all into one package. The Lumix G5 feels better thought out than many entry-level DSLRs, including a touchscreen LCD monitor and speedy autofocus, at roughly the same price. Boasting better ergonomics and handling than the previous-model G3, the Panasonic G5 also boosts its video performance by adding Full HD recording at 60p, and a full-range of frame rates that make it perfect for serious photographers and videographers alike. If you want a compact, lightweight, easy-to-operate interchangeable lens camera with a 14-42mm lens that captures high-quality images at an eminently affordable price, then the 16-megapixel Panasonic G5 should place high on your short list.

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 16.0 2.67x $698.32
The first truly 'micro' Micro Four Thirds camera packs the power of the GX7 into your pocket
While we may have called the GX7 the Micro Four Thirds model we've all been waiting for, the Panasonic GM1 make take its spot, or at least be called the perfect companion camera to the GX7 or other larger M43 cameras. The GM1 packs the same sensor and processor as the GX7 providing excellent image quality and performance as well as offering a ton of advanced features such as a touchscreen LCD and robust Wi-Fi capabilities. The super-compact size lets this well-built camera go practically anywhere, while still retaining the larger sensor and the flexibility of interchangeable lenses.

One step back, two steps forward: the Panasonic GX1 will please enthusiast photographers
As a digital camera made expressly for enthusiasts, the Panasonic GX1 is a little larger than the smallest compact system cameras, but is still small enough to bring along easily. While the GX1 is in some ways a return to an older design, it still includes improvements in resolution and image quality. Its new touchscreen interface also manages to add a bit of utility as well; and an expanding list of compatible lenses make the Panasonic GX1 an appealing digital camera.

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 10.1 3.80x $363.23
A serious photographer's digital camera in a small package
Panasonic's deluxe pocket digital camera line has long been a favorite of photographers as a capable, small take-everywhere camera, when lugging their pro camera was too much to ask. Improved in several ways, the Panasonic LX7 digital camera is a joy to shoot. Key refinements that will appeal to photographers include a manual aperture ring, a manual focus toggle, and a faster, high quality lens. As we've come to expect from Lumix digital cameras, the LX7 also has rock-solid image stabilization, and the new level gauge helps straighten your horizons. Optical quality stands out as the major enhancement, which gave us the confidence to place key subjects in corners without worry that they'd be too soft. The new faster lens -- a full stop faster -- allows faster shutter speeds in low light, and delivers fairly nice bokeh as well. We enjoyed shooting with the Lumix LX7, and felt comfortable with it as our only digital camera on several outings.

image of Pentax MX-1 digital camera Pentax MX-1 12.0 4.00x $376.31
Retro-styled premium compact gets by on much more than its good looks
Boasting top-notch build quality and retro-styled design, the Pentax MX-1 enthusiast compact combines timeless styling with modern niceties such as a tilting LCD screen, fast 4x optical zoom lens, RAW still image capture and Full HD movie recording. Though the 1/1.7-inch imaging sensor might not produce photos that rival those from larger sensor cameras, the image quality from the MX-1 -- especially at lower ISOs -- remains quite pleasing. It's a great compact backup for serious photographers, and a serious step-up for advanced beginners. But is it the right model for you? Read our Pentax MX-1 review to find out! Or shop for one now!

image of Pentax X-5 digital camera Pentax X-5 16.0 26.00x $262.72
Entry-level, versatile superzoom makes taking pictures fun and easy
Boasting a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 26x optical zoom lens, the Pentax X-5 offers family, travel and beginning photographers a serious-looking, but ultimately easy-to-use camera that can capture good photos at a long distance. The camera features a ton of preset modes and automated functions that make picture taking fun and simple. And the X-5's 22-580mm equivalent range can bring the action up nice and close. Though it may look and feel like a DSLR, the X-5 is clearly not geared for enthusiasts wanting advanced photographic capabilities or DSLR-like image quality. While the X-5 delivers crisp, detailed images in good light -- most likely where casual photographers would use it most -- it doesn't fare as well at higher ISOs and when shooting in dim or overcast conditions. It's also a slow camera to operate, especially for candid work. Still, at its price point and with its point-and-shoot lineage, the Pentax X-5 does a lot of things right, and ranks as one of the best entry-level superzoom models we've tested.

A superfast (f/1.4) lens and advanced controls premium compact camera
Serious photographers are always looking for new options for a premium compact camera they can easily carry around with them in situations when it's too much hassle to lug a DSLR. The Samsung EX2F is a new entrant that stacks up well against many of the best cameras in its class, thanks in large part to its f/1.4 Schneider-Kreuznach lens that's among the fastest digicam lenses on the market. The 12-megapixel EX2F boasts advanced photographic controls, including the ability to shoot RAW files (which we highly recommend with this model), a 3-inch articulated AMOLED display and built-in WiFi that make it an all-around solid performer. We've got a few quibbles with it, namely inconsistent JPEG capture, but we think it's a good alternative to the usual suspects, especially if you shoot a lot in low lighting.

The staggeringly-affordable Sony A3000 takes the interchangeable-lens camera back to basics, with only the features you really need
Some cameras are all about cramming in features; the Sony A3000 doesn't play that game. It's been pared down to the basics -- you get precisely what you need, and little more. But while rivals in its pricetag skimp on the basics with plastic lens mounts and years-old designs, Sony plays its own game, making an affordable camera that you'd actually want to own.

Not only does this high-res speed demon cram in plenty of desirable features, the Sony A6000 also shaves a couple of hundred dollars off its predecessor's price. That's the recipe for greatness, so it's no surprise this has been one of our most popular reviews in recent memory -- and now, it's finished!

Easy-to-use compact system camera gives beginners a terrific bang for their buck, and great images to boot
For photographers looking to step-up from a point-and-shoot to an interchangeable lens system camera, the Sony NEX-3N does it as seamlessly as any entry-level model we've ever tested. It employs a simple but effective user interface, and even places a zoom lever right on the camera body. What's more, the NEX-3N takes great photos that rival those from higher-end mirrorless cameras, and even some DSLRs, thanks to its relatively large APS-C-sized sensor. While experienced photographers may focus on the camera's limitations, and might only consider it as a compact backup, beginning shooters will love how easy the NEX-3N is to use, how fun and fast it is to shoot with, and how much bang for the buck it delivers.

A great all-in-one imaging solution for travel photographers
Superzooms are rather like the Swiss Army knives of the digital camera world. Where some cameras seem tuned for a specific task, superzooms like the Sony HX200V aim to cover every possibly shooting situation. All that zoom reach means compromises must be made. Done right, you get a great travel companion. Done wrong, no amount of zoom will help you.

Sony's feature-packed, all-in-one superzoom captures images few camera can
Boasting an incredible 50x optical zoom (24-1,200mm equivalent) reach, the all-in-one Sony HX300 showcases one of the most versatile built-in lenses we've ever tested. This bridge camera's relatively small 1/2.3-inch imaging sensor means its image quality won't rival the output of a DSLR or premium compact -- especially in low light -- but it's definitely capable of capturing photos few other cameras can. Packed with features including Full HD video at up to 60p in a comfortable, ergonomc body, this superzoom is ideal to take on any photo trip when you need to travel light.

This weather-sealed beauty sports a lens that will change your mind about fixed-lens cameras
Conventional wisdom says that if you want the best pictures, you want interchangeable lenses. The Sony RX10 turns that theory on its head, substituting the interchangeable lenses for just the one fixed lens -- but what a great optic it is! With a bright f/2.8 aperture and a generous 24-200mm equivalent range, you'd need a lot of bulky, expensive glass to match the RX10's lens on your SLR or CSC. The RX10 also has a huge advantage over its bridge camera rivals, thanks to a much larger sensor, and it debuts some interesting features including full-sensor readout for video capture.

The best pocket camera gets even better
We've put it through its paces, and the Sony RX100 II really sets a new bar for pocket camera performance. The original RX100 already dominated the competition, and the new model is a substantial step up from it in a number of areas. The RX100 II adds a tilting rear LCD, built-in Wi-Fi, and a multi-interface shoe (a flash hot shoe with an internal connector for attaching things like a high-quality external EVF or a microphone). The biggest change, though, is a switch to a backside-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. This improved high-ISO/low-light JPEG performance by more than a full stop in our tests, albeit a bit less so in the RAW files. (Sony's done quite a bit to improve their JPEG processing lately.)

The Sony RX100 III is a stunning, pocket-friendly shooter, but can it defeat its amazingly popular siblings?
It was clear from its heritage that the Sony RX100 III would be an exciting camera, given that both its predecessors earned our Pocket Camera of the Year award, two years running. But that level of success also meant some mighty big shoes to fill. Sony's pocket-friendly shooter line are in a class of their own, and we shot all three models side-by-side to determine once and for all -- which is the best compact camera that money can buy? Did the RX100 III have what it took to steal the crown? Read our Sony RX100 III review, and find out! (minimize)
