Nikon Z7 Review
image of the Nikon Z7 digital camera
45.7mp | 2.9x | $3,397
The Nikon Z7 is not only Nikon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, it is also one of the company's best cameras. Given their storied history, that's saying a lot. The Nikon Z7 delivers very good image quality and all-around performance inside a sleek and compact mirrorless camera body. There is room to grow and there are not many native lenses for the Z7 yet, but Nikon's first full-frame mirrorless camera is an excellent one. Read more in our in-depth Nikon Z7 review!


Canon EOS R Review
image of the Canon EOS R digital camera
30.3mp | 4.4x | $2,299
Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera brings to the table a compact and weather-sealed body, a high-res 30MP sensor, fast Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, and nice 4Kp30 video. There's a lot to like, such as: very good image quality, fast autofocus and sharp native lenses. But the Canon EOS R also stumbles in some areas: sensor performance lags behind competitors, there's no IBIS, frustratingly slow burst shooting with C-AF, and some odd design choices when it comes to controls and ergonomics. The Canon EOS R might not have all the latest bells and whistles nor the most innovative new features, but it is still a solid camera in most regards. Read more in our in-depth Canon EOS R review!


Panasonic GX9 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9 digital camera
20.3mp | 5.0x | $898
The Panasonic GX9 is an interesting little camera. It's small, lightweight and does a lot of things well, including image quality, autofocus, and overall performance. But does it replace the GX8 or the GX85? Regardless of which camera it replaces, on its own, the GX9 is a really nice camera. It's compact, it feels nice in the hand, and it takes great photos, right up there with some of the best Micro Four Thirds cameras. And it shoots pleasing 4K video as well as offers a host of nifty 4K Photo shooting modes. It packs a lot into a small package -- exactly what many of us expect from a "Micro" Four Thirds camera -- and for a great price. Read all about it in our Panasonic GX9 review!


Olympus E-M10 III Review
image of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 III digital camera
16.1mp | 3.0x | $599
If you're in the market for an affordable, compact mirrorless camera with great image quality, the Olympus E-M10 III certainly delivers. A couple of quibbles mean that it's not for everyone, but for many less-experienced photographers, this camera offers a big upgrade from your smartphone or compact without breaking the bank. Come find out if you need one now in our in-depth Olympus E-M10 III review!


Panasonic G9 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 digital camera
20.3mp | Non-Zoom | $1,279
The 20-megapixel Panasonic G9 captures high-quality still images across a wide range of situations with fast continuous shooting, pretty good autofocus and with excellent DSLR-like controls. The robust and weather-sealed G9 packs in a lot of compelling features and is a true Panasonic Micro Four Thirds stills photography flagship camera, while also offering good 4K/60p video, and all for a great price. Read more in our in-depth Panasonic G9 Review!


Sony A7 III Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A7 III digital camera
24.2mp | 2.5x | $1,998
Sony's "entry-level" full-frame mirrorless camera undergoes its third revision, and by most counts, it's better than ever. The Sony A7 III comes with a new 24MP sensor, a faster processor, and an vastly-upgraded AF system, among other upgrades, and as a result offers improvements across the board compared to its predecessor: better image quality, better performance, better video, better design and better battery life. Sony's other full-frame mirrorless cameras are more specialized in one way or another, but this one is all about balance. The A7 III offers such an array of excellent performance, quality and features that it fits well for many different types of photographers and for many photographic disciplines. At $2,000, the A7 III really is quite a lot of bang for your buck. Get all the details in our in-depth Sony A7 III Review!


Fujifilm X-A5 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-A5 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.0x | $499
For those who want in on Fujifilm's X Series system without a big financial investment, the updated Fuji X-A5 makes a good entry point, especially if your priority is image quality. Offering a similar, but updated, 24MP Bayer-filtered APS-C sensor, the X-A5 provides some of the best image quality performance, at both low and high ISOs, we've seen from an entry-level camera around the $600 price point. Despite a new hybrid AF system and image processor, its performance, however, isn't overly impressive, with slower-than-average AF speed, sluggish shot-to-shot times and a shallow RAW buffer. Still, the Fuji X-A5 makes for a great entry-level camera and is a solid bargain when it comes to image quality. Read all about it in our Fuji X-A5 Review!


Canon T7i Review
image of the Canon EOS Rebel T7i (EOS 800D) digital camera
24.2mp | 3.1x | $699
Though not a huge technological jump from its predecessor, the T7i continues Canon's tradition of making reliable, easy-to-use, consumer-friendly DSLRs for the masses. Pairing an updated 24MP sensor with a faster DIGIC 7 processor, the Rebel T7i offers higher dynamic range, better high ISO performance and improved buffers over the T6i. Add in a 45-point AF system, Canon's excellent Dual Pixel CMOS AF, plus new Bluetooth connectivity, and the affordable Canon T7i has a lot to offer for an entry-level DSLR. On the other hand, the T7i shares a lot with the 77D, which has more features for a minimal difference in price. Consumers at least have a choice, though the T7i, on its own, is a competent entry-level DSLR. For all the details, read our Canon T7i Review!


Fujifilm X-E3 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-E3 digital camera
24.3mp | 3.1x | $699
The Fuji X-E3 is a stylish and easy to use APS-C mirrorless camera. It's a big improvement over its predecessors in many ways, including its excellent, higher-res, 24-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III image sensor and the X-Processor Pro chip for impressive overall performance and 4K video capabilities. The Fujifilm X-E3 also maintains its iconic rangefinder-style design but improves upon it with new controls and a touchscreen. This compact yet versatile interchangeable lens camera is a great value, and despite a few shortcomings, a capable camera all around. Read more in our Fuji X-E3 Review!


Canon SL2 Review
image of the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 (EOS 200D) digital camera
24.2mp | 3.1x | $499
Canon's compact "mini DSLR" gains some much-needed upgrades. With a higher-res 24MP APS-C sensor, Dual Pixel AF, a faster DIGIC 7 processor as well as improved ergonomics, a vari-angle touchscreen and wireless connectivity, the Rebel SL2 offers better image quality and a better shooting experience than the original SL1. Compared to leading rivals, both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, the Canon SL2 lags behind in both image quality performance and popular features like 4K video. But for those who want a fairly full-featured DSLR that's still extremely small, easy to operate and easy on the wallet, the Canon Rebel SL2 has a lot to offer. Read all about it in our in-depth Canon SL2 Review!
