Bringing some solid upgrades to its predecessor and sharing the same image-pipeline as the storied Sony A6000 but in a smaller, lighter form factor, the A5100 is an intriguing possibility. One of the smallest, lightest and most affordable mirrorless cameras currently offered with an APS-C sensor, the Sony A5100 is an intriguing proposition. It shares the same imaging pipeline as the hugely popular Sony A6000, and even boasts a clever feature that the A6000 doesn't have in the form of dual video recording -- the ability to record two different file formats simultaneously. The lack of an EVF and external mode dial will surely rule out some enthusiast shooters, but the sveldt size and price combined with the very good image quality and feel in the hands will appeal to many of you more interested in a smaller size versus a more advanced feature set. Indeed, if image quality and portability are your primary deciding factors in a camera purchase, the Sony A5100 should be a candidate for your short-list of models to consider. Read our in-depth Sony A5100 review for all the details! (minimize)

Big on resolution, not on size. The compact entry-level Nikon D3300 ups the detail and image quality for their entry-level DSLR. The Nikon D3300 is a solid camera, in more ways than one: solid build quality and solid image quality. While autofocus performance is a little below average, and the limited external controls and smaller size may be a turn off for some, the Nikon D3300 excels in most areas. If you're ready to make the jump to a DSLR camera, the Nikon D3300 provides a nice starting point with a great combination of image quality, ease of use and price.

For the entry-level buyer wanting to step up to an SLR for the first time, the Canon T5 offers a pretty compelling package! The Canon T5 brings a welcomed update to Canon's entry-level DSLR model after 2011's Canon Rebel T3. Sporting a higher-res 18MP sensor, improved exterior styling, and upgraded Full HD video as well as advanced exposure controls for video, The T5 offers a lot of camera for your money. While the T5 may lean more toward the basic side of things, the image quality is very good when it's all said and done. If you're looking for a low barrier of entry into the DSLR world, the Canon Rebel T5 is a great place to start. Read more about it in our in-depth Canon T5 review, to see why! (minimize)

A new and improved exterior meets a tried and true imaging pipeline!
Remaining largely the same under-the-hood compared to its X20 predecessor, the Fujifilm X30 brings most of its improvement to the exterior: an EVF over the flawed optical viewfinder, a larger, higher-res tilting LCD screen, updated styling and controls, and Wi-Fi. All combined, the Fuji X30 is a more capable, easier to use camera. Maintaining its impressive image quality chops and performance capabilities, the X30 brings welcomed improvements to Fuji's unique X-Trans premium compact camera lineup.

Smaller and lighter than any Nikon DSLR to date, the D5500 aims to take on mirrorless competitors
The Nikon D5500 raises the bar in Nikon's mid-level DSLR line-up, blending a smaller form factor with improved image quality, excellent dynamic range and improved performance in many areas. It ranks among the elite cameras for low light and high ISO performance in this class and price range, making it an intriguing option for shooters wanting to take their game to the next level, and also for higher-end Nikon shooters wanting a capable back-up in their bag that they can depend on.

image of Olympus PEN E-PM2 digital camera Olympus PEN E-PM2 16.1 3.00x $0.00
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.

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. But that's not to say that there are no compromises in the A3000. Read our in-depth Sony A3000 review, and find out whether Sony's hit the perfect balance between features and cost! (minimize)

The Sony A6000 is affordable, fast, and takes really great pictures. Could this be the ultimate all-rounder camera?
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! So what was our final verdict on this affordable, swift-shooting camera, and is it time you bought one for yourself? Read our in-depth Sony A6000 review, and see what we thought! (minimize)
