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 Olympus E-M10 II is the most capable camera in its class. The Olympus E-M10 II offers more bang for the buck than anything we've seen with a street price under $600 (body-only). While some cameras in that price range may sport more of "this" or "that," the E-M10 II packs a ton of features into a high-quality shell with excellent image quality and terrific high ISO performance, making it really stand out as one of the best all-around performers for the price today. If you demand quality in both a camera's ergonomics and from its image quality, you'll want to read our full Olympus E-M10 II review! (minimize)

Full-frame DSLR that's both affordable and advanced
Despite a few quibbles, the 20.2-megapixel Canon 6D lives up to its promise of housing a glorious, full-frame sensor inside a smaller, lighter and more affordable DSLR camera body designed for prosumers, enthusiasts and novices alike. Canon's done a great job of not dumbing down or cheapening the 6D to fit its "sweet spot" pricing, and the EOS 6D is a responsive shooter that boasts image and video quality rivaling the stepup 5D Mark III. However, Canon has had to nip and tuck a few features to meet the 6D's more affordable pricing and slighter build, although it boasts a couple wrinkles -- built-in WiFI and GPS -- that none of its direct competitors offer.

Go beyond the basics with Canon's advanced entry-level DSLR!
With a newer 24.2-megapixel 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, image quality overall is very good, with nice detail and accurate colors. Dynamic range at low ISOs has been increased, and high ISO performance is slightly improved, though both still lag behind some competitors. The 77D also features an upgraded 45-point autofocus 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! (minimize)

The smallest DSLR we've ever reviewed still packs a punch
Pairing the compact, lightweight body of a mirrorless camera with the performance and image quality of a digital SLR, the Canon SL1 DSLR provides, in many ways, the best of both worlds. And while it appears to be just a miniaturized version of the Rebel T5i, the SL1 proves to be much more than that, offering an advanced Hybrid CMOS II AF system that significantly improves Live View and Movie shooting. This small DSLR takes great still pictures and boasts impressive video skills, plus it comes kitted with the better-than-average EF-S 18-55mm IS STM lens, which is sharp, smooth and virtually silent. Check out our in-depth Canon SL1 review for more details! (minimize)

Canon didn't significantly change its Rebel flagship -- and that's a good thing
When Canon's consumer-friendly flagship Canon T5i launched, many were quick to criticize the minimal upgrade. There's more to the story, though: Sometimes, maintaining the status quo can be a good thing. The earlier T4i was a capable camera, and the Canon T5i retains every feature, while bundling a better kit lens with a quieter STM motor. Boasting great image quality, a solid build, useful features aplenty, and a more affordable pricetag, the Canon Rebel T5i is even easier to recommend than was its mirror-image predecessor.

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.

An excellent, affordable full-frame DSLR gets even better
The Nikon D610 is the camera last year's D600 was supposed to be, with a redesigned shutter mechanism that eliminates the dust-and-oil spot issue that plagued its predecessor. The new D610 keeps the affordable full-frame DSLR price point, as well as the excellent image quality, great ergonomics and controls, and robust feature set. With just a few other minor upgrades, such as nearly six frames per second continuous burst shooting, a new Quiet Continuous mode and tweaked Auto White Balance, the D610 may not seem like a major step up from the D600. But in fixing its predecessor's glaring flaw, the Nikon D610 is now a camera that earns a whole-hearted recommendation for photographers looking to make the jump to a relatively inexpensive, full-frame camera.

It's a good time to be a Nikonian: The weather-sealed, enthusiast-grade Nikon D7200 is here, and this DSLR is better than ever
When we reviewed it a couple of years ago, Nikon's D7100 enthusiast DSLR thrilled us in almost every way, but a too-small buffer left us wanting just a little more. Now the followup Nikon D7200 is here, and this all-weather beauty no longer keeps us waiting thanks to a tripling of the buffer memory. And that's not all: There are some handy upgrades in other areas, too. But with the push to mirrorless, can the D7200 still capture our hearts in 2015?

Packed with features and yet surprisingly compact, the Olympus E-M5 II could be the best Micro Four Thirds camera yet!
A follow-up to the first Micro Four Thirds OM-D series camera, the Olympus E-M5 II has a tough act to follow. Absolutely bursting at the seams with the latest technology -- including a unique high resolution mode that takes it far beyond what its sensor should be capable of -- this 16-megapixel shooter doesn't disappoint. We think this could be the best argument yet for the Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. Find out why in our in-depth Olympus E-M5 II review! (minimize)

Combining strong image quality, good performance and numerous features in a small and sleek camera body, the Panasonic GX850 is a great entry-level mirrorless camera with few weaknesses. There's a lot to like here, including its low price tag. The GX850 is a Dave's Pick for its excellent blend of image quality, performance, features and value.

A high-speed, high-resolution enthusiast DSLR at a great price
The Sony A77 II hits most things right on target for a solid, high-performance, enthusiast-level DSLR. The image quality is very good, especially at lower ISOs and at higher ISOs from RAW, burst shooting performance is top-notch, and single-shot AF is blazingly fast. Unfortunately, for one of its biggest selling points -- continuous autofocus performance -- the Sony A77 II stumbles somewhat when it comes to capturing fast action and other moving subjects, which is quite unfortunate for a high-framerate, seemingly high-performance flagship APS-C camera. Though it misses the mark in one main area, its a very nice, well-rounded camera in most other areas. Read more in our in-depth Sony A77 II Review! (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.
