The Best Entry-Level Camera of 2018! Much like its predecessor, the Nikon D3500 is an extremely enticing camera for beginner photographers. It has a compact design, comfortable ergonomics, fast single-shot AF and best of all, the camera's image quality is fantastic, not only for an entry-level camera but for APS-C cameras in general. The fact that you can get this kind of image quality out of a camera for under $500, with a lens included, is just shocking. The Nikon D3500 might not be the most high-performance camera nor does it have many of the lastest and greatest features, but it's not designed for that. What it is is a solid, lightweight camera for beginners that's easy to use, offers excellent image quality, and doesn't break the bank.

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.

A state-of-the-art waterproof camera packed with a ton of advanced features, including 1080/60p video The Panasonic TS5 waterproof camera should thrill photo geeks who love advanced features and functionality. It's the first camera in its class to deliver advanced Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities that includes remote capture when paired with a smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the TS5 boasts full 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second and 10fps full-res still burst shooting. Unfortunately, the TS5's image quality proved to be mediocre overall, and its dedicated underwater mode photos came out somewhat flat with muted colors. Still, it could be the right compact waterproof model for those who demand the latest high tech gadgetry. Check out our 2013 Best Waterproof Cameras shootout for our Panasonic TS5 review. (minimize)
