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)

Higher resolution, faster processor and better AF beef up Canon's entry-level T6i
Sporting a brand new 24.2MP sensor, faster DIGIC 6 processor and an upgraded 19-point AF system, the Canon T6i is a substantial update to the T5i and versatile option against the more basic T5. Ergonomically, it's nearly identical to its predecessor, which isn't a bad thing; controls are straightforward and the camera is lightweight and comfortable. Overall, while the Canon T6i is not a ground-breaking camera, it blends new features with tried-and-true Canon DSLR characteristics resulting in a very nice, well-rounded entry-level DSLR.

The Canon T6s takes the Rebel series up a notch.
The Canon T6s takes the Rebel series up a notch. With a 24.2 megapixels sensor, the Canon T6s produces excellent images, with tons of detail and accurate colors. The higher ISO performance is also very good despite the higher resolution. The T6s also features a versatile autofocus system, plus improved Live View focusing features and more enthusiast-like controls. Its straightforward functionality is great for an entry-level DSLR shooter, but it also brings over more advanced features and performance from higher-end cameras to satisfy the more experienced photographer as well.

image of Fujifilm X-A5 digital camera Fujifilm X-A5 24.2 3.00x $539.95
Impressive image quality that won't break the bank or your back!
For those who want in on Fuji'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 our Fuji X-A5 Review for all the details. (minimize)

Sporting an 83x optical zoom, this superzoom offering has what it takes to capture good wildlife images at a distance!
The Nikon P900 leapfrogs the competition for farthest reaching superzoom camera and offers an equivalent optical zoom range of a whopping 83x 24-2000mm. This additional reach, some 660mm farther than the next-farthest model the Nikon P600/P610, is designed to appeal to wildlife photographers and other shooters needing extensive zoom range in an all-in-one package at an affordable price. Sporting optical vibration reduction and other enthusiast amenities, the P900 aims to hit the superzoom sweet spot. To see if it hits the high mark, read our in-depth Nikon P900 review! (minimize)

Panasonic FZ300 builds upon a solid foundation and provides a lot of bang for your buck
Two years after the FZ200 camera impressed us with its 24-600mm equivalent lens and strong performance, the Panasonic FZ300 has arrived with a redesigned body and a suite of new features. Unchanged are the 12.1-megapixel sensor and the 25x optical zoom lens, while new upgrades include 4K video and 4K Photo features in addition to numerous other improvements. Is this the high-zoom all-in-one camera you've been waiting for? Read our Panasonic FZ300 review to find out! (minimize)

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.

The Sony A6000 is affordable, fast, and takes really great pictures. Could this be the ultimate all-rounder camera?
Not only does this high-res speed demon cram in plenty of desirable features, the Sony A6000 also shaves a couple of hundred dollars off its predecessor's price. That's the recipe for greatness, so it's no surprise this has been one of our most popular reviews in recent memory -- and now, it's finished! So what was our final verdict on this affordable, swift-shooting camera, and is it time you bought one for yourself? Read our in-depth Sony A6000 review, and see what we thought! (minimize)

The Sony RX100 III is a stunning, pocket-friendly shooter, but can it defeat its amazingly popular siblings?
It was clear from its heritage that the Sony RX100 III would be an exciting camera, given that both its predecessors earned our Pocket Camera of the Year award, two years running. But that level of success also meant some mighty big shoes to fill. Sony's pocket-friendly shooter line are in a class of their own, and we shot all three models side-by-side to determine once and for all -- which is the best compact camera that money can buy? Did the RX100 III have what it took to steal the crown? Read our Sony RX100 III review, and find out! (minimize)
