image of Canon EOS Rebel T5i (EOS 700D) digital camera Canon EOS Rebel T5i (EOS 700D) 18.0 3.06x $726.66
Canon didn't significantly change its Rebel flagship -- and that's a good thing When Canon's consumer-friendly flagship Canon T5i launched, many were quick to criticize the minimal upgrade. There's more to the story, though: Sometimes, maintaining the status quo can be a good thing. The earlier T4i was a capable camera, and the Canon T5i retains every feature, while bundling a better kit lens with a quieter STM motor. Boasting great image quality, a solid build, useful features aplenty, and a more affordable pricetag, the Canon Rebel T5i is even easier to recommend than was its mirror-image predecessor.

image of Nikon D3200 digital camera Nikon D3200 24.2 3.06x $446.95
Another great family SLR from Nikon Affordable and easy to use, the Nikon D3200 really doesn't disappoint, providing a small body, improved controls, and a remarkably high-resolution 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor. We found it capable and pleasantly quiet to shoot, and it's still easy to recommend to novice or advanced amateur alike. We wish the lens stood up a little better to the high-resolution sensor, but we think most family photographers will be quite happy with both camera and lens.

image of Sony Alpha SLT-A58 digital camera Sony Alpha SLT-A58 20.1 3.06x $455.24
Arguably the best image quality we've ever seen from an entry-level DSLR Though the 20.1-megapixel Sony A58 DSLR made some compromises to come in at a more consumer-friendly price than its predecessor, the A57, the camera doesn't skimp on imaging performance. The A58 delivers sharp, detailed photos that rival those from much more expensive models, as well as smooth, high-quality video. Add in responsive and accurate autofocusing, and the camera makes picture-taking an absolute joy. Some may be disappointed by the A58's plastic lens mount (rather than metal), downgraded LCD screen and slower max still and video frame rates, but there's no doubt it's still a tremendous value for beginners.

Innovative AF system makes this DSLR a videographer's dream come true -- at an affordable price
The long-awaited Canon 70D comes packed with a groundbreaking new technology -- Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF system -- that provides on-chip phase detection autofocus at every single pixel. That means a DSLR can finally record video with full-time continuous AF that's truly camcorder-like, with smooth racking and exceptional subject tracking. And Live View AF feels almost as fast as traditional viewfinder shooting. The 70D also gets an upgrade to 20.2 megapixels of resolution, as well as compelling Wi-Fi features that include remote image capture with full exposure controls. The camera may not wow enthusiasts looking for significantly better still image quality, but the 70D marks a serious step up for photographers wanting pro-level video performance and quality.

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.

The flagship Rebel offers just about all you could wish for in a consumer SLR
Truly easy to recommend, the versatile Canon T3i sets the standard at the top of the consumer SLR market. Especially if you're looking for a reasonably affordable SLR that lets you shoot from multiple angles, the Rebel T3i should be at or near the top of your list. With an 18-megapixel sensor, a high-res articulating LCD, an improved grip, and Full HD video recording, the Canon T3i has what it takes to get great shots in most conditions. Its bundled 18-55mm kit lens is improved over its predecessor, and the alternate 18-135mm kit lens is also good quality, covering a near-ideal range for most situations. Image quality is good enough for 20x30-inch prints from ISO 100 to 3,200, and ISO 12,800 shots make a good 8x10. It's quite a camera, to be sure. Click here for more on the Canon T3i! (minimize)

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)

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 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.

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.

image of Nikon D5200 digital camera Nikon D5200 24.1 3.00x $555.97
Mid-level DSLR matches the image quality of more serious cameras at a fraction of the price
The Nikon D5200 may technically be geared for "advanced beginners" -- boasting an easy-to-use design and relatively affordable price -- but it also carries a considerable amount of photographic power. The digital SLR captures exceptional photos that rival those taken by more higher-end cameras, even in low light, thanks to its sophisticated 24.1-megapixel sensor and imaging processor. Add in Full HD movie recording, a relatively fast burst shooting mode and a ton of advanced features, and the D5200 stands as one of the best DSLR investments a fledgling photographer can make.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The truly 'micro' Micro Four Thirds camera gets worthwhile updates and improvements
The Panasonic GM5 takes what was great about the GM1 and improves upon it immensely. While still keeping a lightweight and compact design -- that's practically pocketable even with the 12-32mm kit lens -- the Panasonic GM5 manages to includes a fully-functional, albeit small, electronic viewfinder. Creative lighting options are expanded by the addition of a hot-shoe and external flash support, plus, ergonomics and customization are subtly yet noticeably improved. The image quality remains unchanged and impressive, and performance is still excellent with slight improvements in some areas. Read our in-depth Panasonic GM5 review for all the details! (minimize)

A state-of-the-art waterproof camera packed with a ton of advanced features, including 1080/60p video
The Panasonic TS5 waterproof camera should thrill photo geeks who love advanced features and functionality. It's the first camera in its class to deliver advanced Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities that includes remote capture when paired with a smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the TS5 boasts full 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second and 10fps full-res still burst shooting. Unfortunately, the TS5's image quality proved to be mediocre overall, and its dedicated underwater mode photos came out somewhat flat with muted colors. Still, it could be the right compact waterproof model for those who demand the latest high tech gadgetry. Check out our 2013 Best Waterproof Cameras shootout for our Panasonic TS5 review. (minimize)

Affordably-priced, retro-meets-modern mirrorless camera shoots great photos, shares them wirelessly
The 20.3-megapixel Samsung NX300 is the most fully realized mirrorless, compact system camera the company has produced yet, and one of the best on the market in its class. Though the NX300 is slightly bigger and heavier than its predecessors, its "retro modern" design looks great, and it's still highly portable. Its brand-new APS-C sized, CMOS image sensor forgoes a pack-in-more-pixels upgrade in favor of better image quality and on-chip phase detection autofocus, allowing a quicker and more accurate Hybrid AF system. The NX300 also adds a larger, sharper display, and makes it both tiltable for versatility, and touch-sensitive for ease-of-use. The NX300 is also a faster performer than previous models, and sports improved wireless connectivity that helps put your photos on your smartphone.

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)

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.

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.

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.

Full-frame image quality and a great lens in an astonishingly small package
Full-frame sensors have always meant the highest image quality in handheld cameras, but they've also always meant big, bulky, heavy cameras. The Sony RX1 breaks this mold, though, and not just by a little bit. It's hard to convey just how small the Cyber-shot RX1 is without actually handing you one to hold yourself. It's not much bigger than some high-end digicams, and the same size or smaller than some models in Sony's excellent NEX line of Compact System Cameras when you include one of the kit lenses with the latter. The 24 megapixel full-frame sensor is the same as used in Sony's flagship A99 SLT camera, and it's paired with a 35mm f/2 Carl Zeiss lens with T* optical coatings and superb corner to corner sharpness. The combined package is perfect for "street photography" aficionados, or anyone wanting ultimate optical and sensor quality in a super-portable, beautiful little camera. With an introductory price of $2,800, it clearly won't be the camera for everyone, but even at that price, we think it'll be one of Sony's most popular models. If you're looking for ultimate quality in a "pocket" camera, the Sony RX1 defines the state of the art. (minimize)

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. Is it pricey? Sure, but we think it's worth it. This could just be the camera which convinces you that interchangeable lenses are overkill!

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.

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?
