image of Canon PowerShot G11 digital camera Canon PowerShot G11 10.0 5.00x $577.00
The Canon PowerShot G11 is the G10 done better Giving ear to your most ardent supporters is always a good idea when planning new products, and that's just what Canon did with the Canon PowerShot G11. That change in focus brought back the articulating LCD that was sorely missed by many G-series fans. Canon also took a bold step and reduced the resolution from 14-megapixels to 10, all in an effort to make the Canon G11 a better low-light camera rather than an unnecessarily high-resolution design that struggled to strike a balance between noise and its suppression. Our printed results show that Canon succeeded in reducing chroma (color) noise in the Canon G11's images well enough to produce images of about the same size, but with less noise and less blurring from noise suppression overall. Lens quality is still quite excellent, with minimal chromatic aberration and excellent sharpness in the corners, also likely a result of the switch to a 10-megapixel sensor. The Canon G11 is a joy to use, with its manual EV compensation and ISO dials, articulating LCD, and extremely capable design.

image of Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 10.1 2.50x $449.95
One of the finest premium enthusiast cameras on the market Almost in a category by itself, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera really impressed us. With a 10-megapixel imager, a high quality Leica lens, and a high-resolution 3-inch wide-screen LCD, the Panasonic LX3 was built to deliver high image quality in a small package. Gone are the noise problems of the LX2, and detail is lush. A full range of capture modes graces the LX3 -- auto and manual -- plus a hot shoe, manual AF and aspect ratio controls, and the little digital camera even shoots RAW. The Panasonic LX3's color was natural, and impressive printed results tell the rest of the story. The Panasonic LX3's price is competitive, too, more than an inexpensive digicam, but less than a digital SLR. Click here to see why the Panasonic LX3 has put my piggy bank on the endangered species list. (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)

A boost of speed and connectivity for Canon's flagship premium compact
Canon's PowerShot G-series cameras have been extremely popular with both pro photographers and amateur shooters alike thanks to lots of manual controls, customizable settings and buttons and, last but not least, great image quality. With the PowerShot G16, the big story is speed: fast AF, fast continuous shooting and now Full HD video at up to 60p thanks to its new DIGIC 6 processor. While the sensor has the same 12-megapixel resolution, it is now backside illuminated for better high ISO performance. The G16 also includes built-in Wi-Fi, and a number of other new features and enhancements. Otherwise, the Canon G16 shares many of the same specs as the G15, such as the same f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens, excellent macro mode and non-articulating LCD monitor.

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.

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.

Retro-styled premium compact gets by on much more than its good looks
Boasting top-notch build quality and retro-styled design, the Pentax MX-1 enthusiast compact combines timeless styling with modern niceties such as a tilting LCD screen, fast 4x optical zoom lens, RAW still image capture and Full HD movie recording. Though the 1/1.7-inch imaging sensor might not produce photos that rival those from larger sensor cameras, the image quality from the MX-1 -- especially at lower ISOs -- remains quite pleasing. It's a great compact backup for serious photographers, and a serious step-up for advanced beginners. But is it the right model for you? Read our Pentax MX-1 review to find out! Or shop for one now!

image of Sony Alpha SLT-A58 digital camera Sony Alpha SLT-A58 20.1 3.06x $458.88
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.

Sony RX100 takes the premium pocket camera crown!
We were so impressed with the Sony RX100's specs, we had to rush and give it a complete review in a hurry to see if it truly measured up. We were not disappointed. 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. Sony didn't skimp on special features for amateurs or enthusiasts, either. Click here to see our Sony RX100 review! (minimize)
