Fujifilm X-A5 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-A5 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.0x | $599
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 | $899
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 | $549
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!


Canon 77D Review
image of the Canon EOS 77D digital camera
24.2mp | 7.5x | $649
With an updated 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and faster DIGIC 7 processor, the Canon 77D is the successor to the Rebel T6s, despite the change in naming, and stacks up to be Canon's top-of-the-line entry-level DSLR. As expected, overall image quality is very good, with nice detail, pleasing color and improved dynamic range, though default JPEG processing has room for improvement. The Canon 77D also features an upgraded 45-point AF system as well as Dual Pixel CMOS AF, plus faster burst shooting and a much bigger RAW buffer. Like its predecessor, the 77D combines the ease-of-use of an entry-level DSLR with more advanced controls typically seen on higher-end models. It's a versatile DSLR for those looking to go beyond a basic DSLR yet don't want to break the bank. Read more in our in-depth Canon 77D Review!


Panasonic GX850 Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DC-GX850 digital camera
16.0mp | 2.7x | $548
The Panasonic GX850 continues in the tradition of the GF series of Lumix cameras, one of Panasonic's longest-running Micro Four Thirds model lines. The GX850 uses an improved 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, which ditches an optical low-pass filter. This results in sharp, detailed images across a wide range of ISO speeds. Further, the camera includes 4K video recording, up to 10 frames per second continuous shooting and much more. The GX850 is a compact, sleek and capable entry-level camera that is a great value at US$550 with a kit lens. Read our Panasonic GX850 Review to see if this is the compact mirrorless camera for you!


Nikon D850 Review
image of the Nikon D850 digital camera
45.7mp | $3,297
The D850 is easily Nikon's most versatile DSLR to date. Packing an all-new 45MP sensor and fast EXPEED 5 image processor into a familiar yet improved weather-sealed body, the D850 is comfortable, highly customizable and is pretty much able to photograph whatever you want to throw at it. It offers outstanding resolution and dynamic range as well as superb high ISO performance, plus the fast processor and 153-pt AF sensor from the D5 give the Nikon D850 enough horsepower to easily capture all but the most demanding sports and action subjects. And while video/live-view is still hampered by slow, contrast-detect AF, the D850 offers lots of new video feature, including 4K video and timelapse capture modes. Overall, the D850 is stunning and our pick for Best Camera of 2017. See all the details in our Nikon D850 Review!


Sony A7R III Review
image of the Sony Alpha ILCE-A7R III digital camera
42.4mp | Non-Zoom | $2,998
The Sony A7R III sees improvements in pretty much every area: physical design features, image quality, speed and performance, as well as video recording capabilities and battery life. The A7R III remains a top-notch camera for pixel-peepers, capturing images with stunning detail and dynamic range, but thanks to inheriting performance and AF improvements from the A9, the camera's also fast and nimble enough for sports and action. The A7R III fixes lots of the shortcomings of the previous two models to become an all-around extremely versatile camera for all types of photographers and video creators. For all the details, see our in-depth Sony A7R III Review!


Canon G9X Mark II Review
image of the Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II digital camera
20.2mp | 3.0x | $399
The 20-megapixel Canon G9X II is a good compact camera with a 3x zoom lens. The DIGIC 7 image processor delivers good image processing and speedy performance, although the camera is not without flaws. The built-in lens struggles at wide-angle focal lengths, and the lens itself is not as wide as the competition. As before, the Mark II offers a minimal take on physical controls, focusing heavily on its touchscreen UI, which might be frustrating for some. The Canon G9X II takes what made the original a good pocket camera and adds a few upgrades along the way. With that said, some of the weaknesses of the original remain here in the new version. Read more in our Canon G9X II Review!


Canon 6D Mark II Review
image of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II digital camera
26.2mp | $1,599
With a new 26-megapixel sensor and the latest DIGIC 7 image processor, the Canon 6D Mark II does a lot to improve upon the original 6D. Add in the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, enhanced viewfinder autofocus and a tilt/swivel touchscreen, and the 6D II is a very good all-around full-frame DSLR. However, its dynamic range performance is underwhelming and 4K video is absent. Does the Canon 6D II live up to its legacy? Find out in our Canon 6D Mark II Review!
