Fujifilm GFX 100 Review
image of the Fujifilm GFX 100 digital camera
102.0mp | Non-Zoom | $9,999
With twice the resolution of earlier GFX models, the Fujifilm GFX 100, unsurprisingly, offers outstanding image quality. What's more, is that besides the 102MP sensor, the GFX 100 provides a shockingly impressive set of features, performance, video specs and build quality to make it unlike any other medium-format camera on the market. With features like in-body image stabilization, phase-detect AF, Cinema 4K video up to 30p, and weather-sealed construction, the Fuji GFX 100 is arguably the most versatile medium-format camera on the market. Its usability is hampered somewhat by performance limitations and a still-limited native GF lens lineup, but in the end, the Fujifilm GFX 100 is still a very unique camera, offering an enticing combination of resolution and performance that simply isn't found elsewhere on the market. Read more in our Fuji GFX 100 review!


Fujifilm X-T30 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-T30 digital camera
26.1mp | 3.0x | $799
The Fuji X-T30 is an impressive camera, not only for its image quality and performance but also for its price point. By and large, the X-T30 is a smaller, more affordable alternative to the rugged X-T3. Packing in the same 26MP X-Trans sensor, image processor and autofocus system as the X-T3, as well as similar high-res video shooting capabilities, the X-T30 is surprisingly robust in capabilities and features. Image quality is excellent, and autofocus performance is fast, accurate and responsive. And yet Fuji's priced the camera at just $800 body-only. If you're looking for a compact, easy-to-carry mirrorless cameras and don't need or want the extra bulk or weather-sealing of the X-T3, the X-T30 is a fantastic choice that'll also save you a nice chunk of change. Read more in our in-depth Fuji X-T30 Review!


Nikon Z6 Review
image of the Nikon Z6 digital camera
24.5mp | 2.9x | $1,697
The Nikon Z6 is a terrific, well-rounded full-frame mirrorless camera. Basically, there isn't a lot to complain about when it comes to the Z6. The body is compact and robust yet features lots of physical controls and a familiar Nikon design. With excellent overall features, impressive image quality, nice build quality and design as well as a very competitive price point, the Nikon Z6 is a great all-around package. And while at this point in time, the Z6 appeals perhaps a bit more towards current Nikon owners, the Z6 is still a compelling camera for anyone looking to jump into the full-frame camera arena.

Olympus E-M1X Review
image of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X digital camera
20.4mp | Non-Zoom | $2,999
How to sum-up the Olympus E-M1X? In a sense, it's a bigger, burlier, slightly more specialized version of the E-M1 Mark II. It's an OM-D camera tailormade primarily for sports, wildlife and other photographers use use long telephoto lenses. Sporting the same 20MP sensor as the E-M1 II, the overall image quality of the E-M1X is very good, but mostly unchanged. However, improvements abound with regards to AF performance, especially with AF tracking. There's also more advanced video features. Yes it's big, and yes it's expensive, but the E-M1X offers high performance and improved operability while remaining true to the characteristic portability of a Micro Four Thirds system. Read more in our in-depth Olympus E-M1X review!


Pentax K-1 II Review
image of the Pentax K-1 II digital camera
36.4mp | 3.8x | $1,797
A modest but worthwhile update to the earlier K-1, the Pentax K-1 II is the company's flagship full-frame DSLR, offering the best image quality you can get from any K-mount camera and the most feature-rich shooting experience of any Ricoh camera. If performance is paramount, then you may want to look at an APS-C model for more speed, but otherwise the K-1 II represents the sweet spot in the Pentax DSLR line. Find out what it has to offer -- and whether you should buy one -- in our in-depth Pentax K-1 II review!


Panasonic GH5S Review
image of the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S digital camera
10.2mp | Non-Zoom | $1,998
The GH5 was, and is, a fantastic camera for video, but the Panasonic GH5S goes above and beyond. Its 10MP resolution is a bit low for photos, but it's great for video. The GH5S offers better video quality, more recording options, and just tons of advanced video features. And while the AF speed is slightly slower than the GH5, and the lack of in-body image stabilization removes some of what made the GH5 so versatile, the GH5S offers such a wealth of features and high-quality video, that it's easy to overlook these minor points. In the end, if you're a serious video creator looking for a compact yet feature-packed video camera, the Panasonic GH5S is the one to pick. Read more in our Panasonic GH5S review!


Fujifilm GFX 50R Review
image of the Fujifilm GFX 50R digital camera
51.4mp | Non-Zoom | $3,999
The medium-format Fuji GFX 50R shares many of its features and performance with the GFX 50S, but offers them in a slimmer, less ergonomic body at a lower price point. Importantly, the same excellent 51-megapixel image sensor continues to deliver outstanding image quality. However, the 50R's admittedly more stylish design is less enjoyable to use and in some cases even difficult. Further, aspects of the 50R's performance feel more sluggish in 2019 than they did in 2017 with the 50S. Read our Fuji GFX 50R review to see if the lower price is worth the tradeoffs to you.


Fujifilm X-T3 Review
image of the Fujifilm X-T3 digital camera
26.1mp | 3.1x | $1,299
The Fuji X-T3 is a very impressive, very well-rounded camera, for both photos and video. Despite its stylish exterior, the X-T3 is a serious camera, featuring Fujifilm's highest-res 26MP APS-C X-Trans sensor, a faster processor, seriously upgraded AF system as well as a boatload of advanced video features. The X-T3 can shoot everything from landscapes and portraits to sports and wildlife with excellent AF tracking. For videographers, the 4Kp60 mode, F-Log as well as 10-bit internal recording are welcomed upgrades over the X-T2, and in fact, are features not typically seen on cameras of this class and price point. Overall, the X-T3 -- our pick for the Best Camera of 2018 -- offers something for everyone; it's a versatile, well-built enthusiast-grade camera with a surprisingly affordable price tag. For all the details, read our in-depth Fujifilm X-T3 review!


Canon EOS M50 Review
image of the Canon EOS M50 digital camera
24.2mp | 3.0x | $629
If you're shopping for an affordable mirrorless camera with a solid build, good ergonomics, a viewfinder and (via an optional adapter) first-party EF-mount lens support, the Canon M50 has a lot to offer. Sporting a next-gen DIGIC 8 processor, the M50 is both swift and shoots great photos. While there are some drawbacks to its new 4K video capture functionality, the M50 deserves a close look. Find out if you should buy one in our Canon M50 review!


Nikon P1000 Review
image of the Nikon Coolpix P1000 digital camera
16.1mp | 125.0x | $997
The Nikon P1000 isn't your typical "superzoom" camera. This is one for the record books. Sporting a 125x optical zoom lens, with a 35mm-eq. focal length range of 24-3000mm (yes, 3000!), the P1000 surpasses the already-impressive P900 and pushes the superzoom category even further. With a tiny 16MP 1/2.3-inch sensor, however, the Nikon P1000 isn't going to produce supremely detailed images, especially as the light dims. Overall, though, despite some disadvantages, the P1000 is a really unique camera that can capture some impressive images and offers a shooting experience unlike any other camera currently on the market. For all the details check out our in-depth Nikon P1000 review!
