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.

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.

The Fuji X-T10 reimagines the flagship X-T1 as an entry-level camera. Result: More cash in your pocket to spend on lenses and accessories!
A year after the X-T1 gave a great demonstration of how modern technology and a vintage design could co-exist, the Fuji X-T10 is here to show how much the same thing can be achieved at a significantly more affordable pricetag. By paring away or dialing back a few features here and there, Fujifilm has achieved a much more aggressive pricetag, and in the process they've also created an even more compact camera. But will you miss any of the flagship's features in the real world? Find out in our in-depth Fuji X-T10 review! (minimize)

Nikon adds SnapBridge to its popular D5XXX series
With the same imaging pipeline as the Nikon D5500, the 24-megapixel Nikon D5600 DSLR delivers great image quality but comes equipped with Nikon SnapBridge functionality, making sharing images easier than ever. While there is not a lot new here, the D5600 is a very impressive compact DSLR camera capable of delivering excellent image quality and good overall performance while being a great value. D5500 owners may not see a compelling reason to upgrade, but for those looking to upgrade from an older camera or purchase their first DSLR, the Nikon D5600 is a very good option.
