We've been testing extensively to bring you our in-depth review. Read more
Canon's entry-level Rebel is a very affordable $500 with kit lens. It's not at the head of its class in terms of technology, but does its budget-friendly price tag make up for that? Well, that depends on what you're looking for. Read more
Less than a year after the Mark II was released, Sony upped the ante on its all-in-one superzoom with the RX10 Mark III and its 24-600mm equivalent F2.4-4 lens. Read review
The HTC 10's predecessors have failed to impress us in the camera department, but the company's latest flagship is in a whole new league. Its 12MP sensor, image stabilization and Raw capture put it just shy of the very best mobile offerings in terms of image quality. Read more
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 is a mid-range interchangeable lens camera sporting a 16MP Four Thirds sensor and 4K video capability. It looks great on paper but how does it stack up in use? Read review

The Nikon D5 is the newest iteration of the company's action-oriented flagship DSLR. Its headline features include a new Nikon-developed 20.8MP full-frame sensor and 153-point AF system.

The Nikon D500 is a 21MP DSLR that shares most of its key features with Nikon's flagship D5, but packs them into a smaller APS-C format body.

The Fujifilm X70 may look like a shrunken X100-series camera with lens specs lifted from a Ricoh GR II, but in practice it handles and shoots very differently than either of those cameras. This is due in no small part to a Fujifilm first: a touchscreen that also happens to tilt. Is the X70 the ultimate coat-pocketable APS-C compact? Read more
The Canon XC10 is a hybrid still/video camera which features a 12MP, 1"-type CMOS sensor, 24-240mm equivalent lens, 4K/UHD video capture at up to 305Mbps and a video-centric design with a fully articulating LCD. We've taken a look at both its still and video capabilities in our in-depth review. Read the review

We've posted our review of Panasonic's Lumix DMC-ZS100 (TZ100 outside of North America), which is the first travel zoom to sport a 1"-type sensor.

The Leica Q’s melding of manual control with electronic assistance and combination of fixed-28mm F1.7 lens and 24MP full-frame sensor make for a responsive package capable of excellent photographs. But despite its $4250 asking price, we found a few other less likable characteristics over the course of our review. So is it worthy of that bright red dot? Find out in our full review. Read more
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a radical reworking of the first X-Series mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It may look essentially the same but just about every aspect of the camera has been refreshed, extended and enhanced. Read our full review to find out what these changes amount to.

Combining a 1:1 macro, wide angle of view and shift lens into a single body, the Venus LAOWA 15mm F4 is a lens with more than a few tricks up its sleeve. This article explores those abilities and provides some real world samples from both full-frame and APS-C cameras. Read more
At first glance, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 looks like just another rangefinder-style mirrorless camera. But flip it around and you quickly notice it's unique tilting electronic viewfinder, one of several features that make this camera stand out from the crowd. We've put the GX8 through some rigorous testing. Read more
We took some quick test shots with the Aukey extreme wide angle smartphone lens.
The king is dead, long live the Mark II. After 15 long years, Canon finally upgraded one of the biggest-selling telezooms of all time - the 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS USM. Is it a worthy successor to the venerable, but still very capable original? Read more
Olympus has brought new life – and a new face – to the famed film-era PEN series with the all-new digital PEN-F. The PEN-F is a 20MP rangefinder-style interchangeable lens camera that inherits a lot of features from the OM-D E-M5 II, including 5-axis image stabilization and a high resolution shooting mode. It has an impressive spec sheet, but how does it perform? Read more

The GoPro HERO4 Session is the company's latest action camera release. Unlike GoPros before it, the Session is completely waterproof without the need for any housing. It is also the smallest, lightest GoPro to date, 50% smaller than the HERO4 and 40% lighter. Read more
Canon has added to its EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high-resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills photographers. The only difference between the models is that the 'S' has an optical low-pass filter, while the 'S R' has a self-cancelling filter (the same relationship as Nikon's D800 and D800E models shared). We've put both cameras through exhaustive tests. Read our full review to see what we think
The Canon PowerShot G5 X is a higher-end version of last year's G7 X and inherits its predecessor's 24-100mm lens and 20.2MP 1"-type BSI CMOS sensor and puts it into an SLR-style body with a built-in EVF, fully articulating LCD, three control dials and a hot shoe. Read our in-depth review to find out if this is the enthusiast compact you've been looking for.
The Sony a7R II is a 42MP full frame mirrorless camera with 5-axis image stabilization, featuring the world's first (and currently only) 35mm BSI CMOS sensor, and including a hybrid autofocus system and 4K video capabilities. It's the fifth in the company's a7 range of full frame cameras and the second high-resolution 'R' model. However, although its name and appearance are very similar to the first round of a7s, the R II arguably represents just as significant a step forwards as those first full frame mirrorless models did.
Though it's the fifth model in Sony's full-frame E-mount lineup, the a7R II arguably represents just as much of a technological leap forward as its first mirrorless full-frame predecessors did. Its 42MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, 399 on-sensor phase detection point AF system and 5-axis IS are just a few reasons why the a7R II is one of the most talked-about cameras of the last year. See how it performed in our comprehensive testing. Read more
The Samsung NX500 is the baby brother to the company's superb NX1 mirrorless camera. It brings over many of the features of the NX1, including its 28MP BSI CMOS sensor and AF system, and puts them into a compact body at a price competitive with other midrange mirrorless models. Read more
The Sony RX10 II is the follow-up to a camera we already thought quite highly of. While the 24-200mm F2.8 equivalent lens and external body design remain unchanged, the RX10 II sports a new stacked sensor and can record 4k video internally, with full sensor readout. It also features improved AF performance and a higher-res EVF, but is it worth the sticker price? Read more
