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!

Improved images, better video and advanced features make this mid-range DSLR an excellent choice The Nikon D5300 brings some high-end features down to their latest top-tier consumer DSLR, including a high-resolution 24.2-megapixel sensor that does away with the optical low-pass filter (a la the D7100) to increase sharpness and fine detail. Plus, squeezing in Nikon's powerful EXPEED 4 image processor not only gives the D5300 improved high ISO performance, but also better video specs with 1080/60p Full HD video. It also features some firsts for Nikon DSLRs, such as built-in Wi-Fi and GPS for easy sharing, remote control shooting and geotaging. All in all, this compact, mid-range DSLR adds up to be an excellent choice for upgrading beginners and budding enthusiasts alike.

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.

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.

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 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)

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.

Bigger sensor, faster processor and better AF beef up Canon's entry-level T6i
Sporting a brand new 24.2MP sensor, faster DIGIC 6 processor and an upgraded 19-point AF system, the Canon T6i is a substantial update to the T5i and versatile option against the more basic T5. Ergonomically, it's nearly identical to its predecessor, which isn't a bad thing; controls are straightforward and the camera is lightweight and comfortable. Overall, while the Canon T6i is not a ground-breaking camera, it blends new features with tried-and-true Canon DSLR characteristics resulting in a very nice, well-rounded entry-level DSLR.

The Canon T6s takes the Rebel series up a notch. With a 24.2 megapixels sensor, the Canon T6s produces excellent images, with tons of detail and accurate colors. The higher ISO performance is also very good despite the higher resolution. The T6s also features a versatile autofocus system, plus improved Live View focusing features and more enthusiast-like controls.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The camera marks a serious upgrade over the much-beloved D7000, adding a new 51-point autofocus system, full 1080p HD video recording with full-time AF, and a nifty 1.3x crop mode to its advanced feature set.

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.

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.

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.

Old and new come together in one high-quality digital camera
Small and light, yet solid and weather-sealed, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 is a lot more capable than its size suggests. Image quality is noticeably improved from past Olympus offerings, rivaling that of APS-C SLRs, and its sensor-shift image stabilization system is the most advanced we've seen. Perhaps most importantly, though, the Olympus E-M5 is a whole lot of fun to use, and the ready availability of great glass adds to the party, making you want to get out and shoot. We also love the E-M5's nostalgic appearance, as well as how it feels and operates when we're out shooting. The whole experience is impressive. Click here for our Olympus E-M5 Review! (minimize)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Sony A77 II hits most things right on target for a solid, high-performance, enthusiast-level DSLR. The image quality is very good, especially at lower ISOs and at higher ISOs from RAW, burst shooting performance is top-notch, and single-shot AF is blazingly fast. Unfortunately, for one of its biggest selling points -- continuous autofocus performance -- the Sony A77 II stumbles somewhat when it comes to capturing fast action and other moving subjects, which is quite unfortunate for a high-framerate, seemingly high-performance flagship APS-C camera.

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.

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.
