image of Nikon D810 digital camera Nikon D810 36.3 -- $2,796.95
Faster, more capable, and spectacularly hungry for detail: The Nikon D810 is a dream come true for pixel peepers! The 36-megapixel Nikon D810 has some pretty big shoes to fill, replacing the much-loved D800 and D800E with a single model. Taking the best of both, this detail-devouring beauty has even greater per-pixel resolution, a wider sensitivity range, greater performance, more capable video capture, and more -- but it also now has competition from rivals Canon and Sony. How does it fare in this new reality? Read our in-depth Nikon D810 review, and find out! (minimize)

image of Canon EOS 5DS R digital camera Canon EOS 5DS R 50.6 -- $3,699.00
With 50MP, is this the Canon alternative to medium format? The Canon 5DS R, the highest-resolution EOS body to date, is an all-around striking camera that captures some seriously impressive, incredibly detailed photographs. The higher resolution sensor does make shooting technique more crucial though, and the video features and ISO range are limited compared to other full-frame cameras, so the 5DS R is certainly not everyone. For professional and advanced enthusiast portrait, editorial, landscape and nature photographers looking for extreme image detail in a tried-and-true Canon DSLR package -- without jumping to a digital medium format system -- the Canon 5DS R is the answer.

The A7 Matured: built-in image stabilization, better ergonomics, better performance. The affordable full-frame Sony mirrorless camera gets updated. Sony has yet another winner on their hands with the A7 II. By addressing some of the design and ergonomic quirks of the original model, as well as providing a notable technological achievement with their 5-axis image stabilization -- and some subtle, yet worthwhile, performance enhancements -- the Sony A7 II is a more matured, more well-rounded camera and therefore an even more enticing option for those wanting full-frame image quality but not a full-frame DSLR-sized camera.

A superb full-frame DSLR, for both stills and video
The Canon 5D Mark III is a true "superstar" camera, with impressive capabilities for both still and video shooting. It suits the needs of well-heeled amateurs and working pros equally well, and while its resolution is only very slightly higher than that of the 5D Mark II, the Canon 5D Mark III offers so many improvements over its predecessor that it'll be an easy upgrade decision for many 5D Mark II owners. Image quality is superb, and the new autofocus system is fast and accurate. Those who handled the EOS 5D Mark III consistently remarked about the viewfinder experience, particularly the improved autofocus coverage area. There are issues, as with any system, including more limited dynamic range by comparison, and default settings for noise reduction and sharpening are a bit extreme in JPEGs, but most of that can be worked around or avoided by shooting raw. And while we wish the Canon 5D Mark III included a pop-up flash, the camera's low-light performance is stunning, so shooting in ambient light is easier than ever.

image of Canon EOS 6D digital camera Canon EOS 6D 20.2 4.38x $1,499.00
Full-frame DSLR that's both affordable and advanced
Despite a few quibbles, the 20.2-megapixel Canon 6D lives up to its promise of housing a glorious, full-frame sensor inside a smaller, lighter and more affordable DSLR camera body designed for prosumers, enthusiasts and novices alike. Canon's done a great job of not dumbing down or cheapening the 6D to fit its "sweet spot" pricing, and the EOS 6D is a responsive shooter that boasts image and video quality rivaling the stepup 5D Mark III. However, Canon has had to nip and tuck a few features to meet the 6D's more affordable pricing and slighter build, although it boasts a couple wrinkles -- built-in WiFI and GPS -- that none of its direct competitors offer.

Five years later, the Canon 7D Mark II brings a solid array of upgrades and new features to Canon's flagship APS-C DSLR.
Five years after the original 7D debuted, the Mark II version is here, and with it, a host of upgrades and new features. Catering primarily to sports, action and wildlife photographers, the Canon 7D Mark II , borrows many features and performance specs from their 1D-series models, but at a more affordable price. The 7D Mark II looks to continue this heritage with an even more flexible and powerful 65-pt. AF system, Dual DIGIC 6 processors, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, improved build quality and more advanced video features. The Canon 7D Mark II is a big upgrade over the 7D in many ways, though the Mark II does falter in a few areas. Read our in-depth Canon 7D Mark II review for more! (minimize)

image of Canon EOS-1D X digital camera Canon EOS-1D X 18.1 -- $4,599.00
Canon's new flagship full-frame pro SLR is the one to beat
Canon's curious move paid off, that of merging the 1D and 1Ds lines into one camera that captures very high-res images at a blistering frame rate. While it's not the highest resolution on the pro market, the Canon 1D X really impresses with its high ISO performance, and its 12-frame-per-second burst mode will keep up with athletic events, enabled by its dual DIGIC 5+ processors. Lock up the mirror and you can almost shoot 18-megapixel movies at 14 frames per second. Yet its 18-megapixel resolution is nothing to sneeze at, serving quite well for professional fashion and portrait work. Its 61-point autofocus system covers a good portion of the viewfinder, and includes five high-precision diagonal cross-type points for greater precision with fast lenses, also meeting the needs of the press photographer working in low light. Big and formidable, the Canon 1D X is very much made for pros, and its rugged build is as equal to the job as its impressive image quality. Easily one of the finest cameras on the market, the Canon 1D X is a sure Dave's Pick. (minimize)

image of Fujifilm X-Pro1 digital camera Fujifilm X-Pro1 16.3 -- $499.00
A retro look, great features and stunning image quality make the Fujifilm X-Pro1 a real winner
Quality prime lenses and a tack-sharp sensor come together with a unique hybrid optical viewfinder to form the Fujfilm X-Pro1, a digital camera built exclusively for enthusiast photographers. The X-Pro1 really hits the nail on the head, driving deep into high-ISO territory with tack-sharp images. Its controls and feature set are also ideal for the target market, and its available lenses are reasonably priced, small, well-made, and light weight. We found it to be a terrific photographic tool, easy to control, and a joy to use. Click here for our review of the Fujfilm X-Pro1, or just take our word for it and shop for the Fujfilm X-Pro1 now!

image of Nikon D4S digital camera Nikon D4S 16.2 -- $4,949.00
The Nikon D4S is a supremely swift shooter with "Pro" written all over it -- but can it dethrone the D4?
There are no two ways about it: The Nikon D4S is one seriously impressive DSLR. That's to be expected, bearing in mind its heritage. But casting judgement on its greatness depends very much on perspective, so we looked at Nikon's new pro flagship through two different lenses: That of the enthusiast looking to step up their game, and that of the pro upgrading to the latest and greatest. Whichever camp you fall into, we've got your answer. Read our Nikon D4S review, and find out if it's time you bought yourself a new DSLR! (minimize)

image of Nikon D610 digital camera Nikon D610 24.3 3.54x $1,496.95
An excellent, affordable full-frame DSLR gets even better
The Nikon D610 is the camera last year's D600 was supposed to be, with a redesigned shutter mechanism that eliminates the dust-and-oil spot issue that plagued its predecessor. The new D610 keeps the affordable full-frame DSLR price point, as well as the excellent image quality, great ergonomics and controls, and robust feature set. With just a few other minor upgrades, such as nearly six frames per second continuous burst shooting, a new Quiet Continuous mode and tweaked Auto White Balance, the D610 may not seem like a major step up from the D600. But in fixing its predecessor's glaring flaw, the Nikon D610 is now a camera that earns a whole-hearted recommendation for photographers looking to make the jump to a relatively inexpensive, full-frame camera.

It's a good time to be a Nikonian: The weather-sealed, enthusiast-grade Nikon D7200 is here, and this DSLR is better than ever
When we reviewed it a couple of years ago, Nikon's D7100 enthusiast DSLR thrilled us in almost every way, but a too-small buffer left us wanting just a little more. Now the followup Nikon D7200 is here, and this all-weather beauty no longer keeps us waiting thanks to a tripling of the buffer memory. And that's not all: There are some handy upgrades in other areas, too. But with the push to mirrorless, can the D7200 still capture our hearts in 2015?

image of Nikon D750 digital camera Nikon D750 24.3 5.00x $1,996.95
The long-awaited D700 replacement is here! The Nikon D750 brings a solid array of upgrades and new features to Nikon's growing enthusiast full-frame DSLR family.
Placed between the D610 and D810, the Nikon D750 borrows from both models for a fantastic all-around multimedia DSLR. With a 24.3MP full-frame sensor and fast EXPEED 4 processor, the Nikon D750 captures outstanding, highly detailed images with excellent dynamic range and high ISO performance. The Nikon D750 also has class-leading burst shooting capabilities and excellent low-light AF. With an articulated LCD screen and other high-end movie features, the D750 is also a great option for multimedia producers and videographers.

image of Nikon Df digital camera Nikon Df 16.2 1.00x $2,746.95
The handsome, retro-styled Nikon Df's exceptional low-light performance lets you leave your flash at home
The full-frame, FX-format Nikon Df takes the same great sensor and processor pairing of the professional Nikon D4, and places them in a weather-sealed, retro-styled body that's rich with external controls. (And it does so at half the price of the pro camera.) It's arguably the best available-light shooter around, but is it the right camera for you? Read our Nikon Df review, and find out! (minimize)

image of Olympus OM-D E-M1 digital camera Olympus OM-D E-M1 16.1 -- $899.00
The mightiest Micro Four Thirds camera so far delivers stunning stills and top-of-class performance
The Olympus E-M1 builds upon the Micro Four Thirds legacy of the outstanding OM-D E-M5, adding not only a ton of features geared for pros and advanced enthusiasts, but also an on-chip, phase-detect autofocusing system that works remarkably well with Olympus Four Thirds DSLR lenses. The OM-D E-M1 offers a solid, weatherproof build, an outstanding electronic viewfinder, tons of physical controls and an advanced Wi-Fi system. Most importantly, the camera delivers excellent image quality for its class, even at high ISOs, as well as blazing performance that rivals top DSLRs.

Packed with features and yet surprisingly compact, the Olympus E-M5 II could be the best Micro Four Thirds camera yet!
A follow-up to the first Micro Four Thirds OM-D series camera, the Olympus E-M5 II has a tough act to follow. Absolutely bursting at the seams with the latest technology -- including a unique high resolution mode that takes it far beyond what its sensor should be capable of -- this 16-megapixel shooter doesn't disappoint. We think this could be the best argument yet for the Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. Find out why in our in-depth Olympus E-M5 II review! (minimize)

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 16.1 -- $547.99
Fast AF, great images and the best video we've ever seen in a camera at this price
Featuring a new 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor and one of the deepest feature sets we've ever seen on a mirrorless compact system camera, the Panasonic GH3 outshines its predecessor, the GH2, by delivering better still images as well as stunning, pro-level video. Most importantly, the camera offers filmmaking features -- such as full 1080p video at 60fps and bit rates as high as 72 Mbps -- that you won't find on DSLRs twice its price. Add in a more durable, weatherized body, fast autofocus, and an upgraded interface that gives you more direct access for changing settings, and the GH3 is one unique, sophisticated photographic tool.

4K for the masses: Powerhouse hybrid camera balances pro-level specs with enthusiast price point!
The Panasonic GH4 is arguably one of the best Micro Four Thirds camera on the market today, and follows in the footsteps of the highly-praised GH3. The GH4 includes improvements under the hood in almost every area -- faster burst shooting, quicker AF speed, improved dynamic range, and, of course, 4K video recording. The GH4 is also a very well-built camera with a solid-feeling, dust- and splash-proof magnesium body and comfortable DSLR-like ergonomics. Whether your stepping up to a more advanced mirrorless camera, a seasoned DSLR shooter, or a professional videographer, the Panasonic GH4 has all the bells and whistles, not to mention quality, to get the job done.

The Pentax 645Z redefines what's possible with stunning resolution and features until now unheard-of in a medium format camera
Medium-format cameras offer truly spectacular resolution, but until now, it's always come alongside a difficult compromise. With the Pentax 645Z, that changes. Building on 2010's 645D, the Pentax 645Z offers features that are rare or in some cases unique in a medium-format camera. Pick up its weather-sealed body, and you'll find both live view and video capture on offer, not to mention an extremely wide sensitivity range, 27-point phase-detect autofocus system -- and compared to rivals, very swift performance too! And of course, you'll get the incredible detail-gathering capability of medium-format, plus a really big, bright viewfinder. Is it time you considered moving up from full-frame?

With groundbreaking technology in a compact, weather-sealed body, the Pentax K-3 puts forth a strong argument for ditching Canon and Nikon
Ricoh's flagship APS-C camera, the 24-megapixel Pentax K-3 is jam-packed with clever technology, yet it's also affordably priced and among the very smallest enthusiast DSLRs. As well as overhauled imaging, autofocus, and metering, it also boasts an industry-first system that lets you choose whether resolution or moir�-resistance are more critical for any given shot. But can its unique advantages tempt you away from mainstream rivals Canon and Nikon? (And should you upgrade, if you're already a Pentaxian?) Read our Pentax K-3 review, and find out! (minimize)

A professional-level, high-performance, 4K-shooting NX-series camera
The NX1 is the first pro-level NX-series camera, and Samsung has pulled out all the stops with an impressive set of features and under-the-hood horsepower. On most fronts, the Samsung NX1 is a tremendous camera, with excellent DSLR-like ergonomics and controls, impressive photo and video quality and great performance. The NX1 does falter somewhat with continuous autofocus performance, but overall, it is a very compelling camera. Read more about Samsung's flagship NX camera in our in-depth Samsung NX1 review!

Good news: The best full-frame mirrorless camera may also be the most affordable!
When we reviewed Sony's A7R mirrorless camera, we were thrilled by its combination of a full-frame image sensor and a compact body. The Sony A7 offers both, and yet it's even more affordable. It also boasts better autofocus and performance, but trades off some of its sibling's epic resolution to achieve these. We already knew the Sony A7 would be great, but we wanted to answer which was better: The Sony A7 or A7R? Does amazing image quality trump performance? Are you better off spending a little more, or can you be thrifty and still get the best full-frame mirrorless camera money can buy? Read our Sony A7 review and find out! (minimize)

Our 2013 Camera of the Year marks the start of the full-frame mirrorless revolution
The news you've been waiting for has arrived! The age of the fully-featured, full-frame mirrorless camera is finally here -- and boy, what a duo of cameras kickstart the revolution. The Sony A7R promises absolutely amazing image quality in a compact body, while its closely-related sibling the A7 trades a little resolution for greater performance. Both cameras excite in their own way, but it's the Sony A7R -- our 2013 Camera of the Year -- which really floors us. This amazing compact system camera offers image quality to rival a medium format design, yet in a body that can fit in a coat pocket, even with a lens attached.

image of Sony Alpha ILCE-A7S digital camera Sony Alpha ILCE-A7S 12.2 -- $2,198.00
A unique 12-megapixel sensor offers outstanding low-light shooting and 4K video
Sony earned high praise for their high-quality and very compact A7 and A7R full-frame mirrorless cameras, and now with the addition of the A7S, Sony takes a leap in a unique direction with a lower-resolution, 12-megapixel version that’s not only capable of incredibly high ISO sensitivities, but also direct pixel readout for 4K and HD video capture. Remaining largely unchanged in terms of design compared to the A7 and A7R, the A7S provides significant tweaks under the hood. Not only does the new sensor allow for excellent low-light shooting, it also has fantastic dynamic range, great low-light AF and a host of professional-level video features, including Picture Profiles with SLog2 gamma and XAVC S format video. 4K video is relegated on via HDMI streaming to a recorder, which is a big blow to convenience, but other than this, the A7S is largely an outstanding compact, professional hybrid still & video camera.

Sony delivers a no-excuses full-frame SLR breakthrough
Sony's been trying to crack the pro SLR market for years, but with relatively little success till now. With the Sony Alpha SLT-A99, though, it looks like they finally have a winner: It's a blazingly fast shooter, yet delivers 24 megapixels of resolution, while Sony's unique translucent-mirror technology means it can focus rapidly, continuously, and accurately, whether shooting videos or rapid-fire bursts of stills. It's also the only full-frame camera with very effective sensor-based image stabilization built in, providing IS benefits regardless of what lens is attached. The list of the Sony A99's features goes on and on, including a unique range-sensitive AF mode, a super-resolution EVF, built-in GPS, and a rugged magnesium-alloy frame with full weather sealing that's both smaller and lighter than most other high-end full-frame SLRs on the market. If you're looking for a true professional-grade full-frame SLR with unparalleled continuous AF capability, great shooting speed, and a price literally half those of its nearest competitors, look no further than the Sony A99. It offers truly ground-breaking capabilities at a price sure to shake up the pro camera marketplace. (minimize)
