The Nikon Z6, paired with the new Nikkor Z 50mm F1.8S produces the sort of result you'd expect from a baby Z7. The lens is consistent across the frame and the sensor looks good but, like the Z7, the PDAF stripes aren't perfectly corrected so can occasionally become visible.

Testing of the Canon G1 X Mark III is well underway, inside of the studio and out. We've just added it to our test scene comparison tool, where you can take a look at its performance side-by-side against peers like the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V.
While a couple of our reviewers are out testing the Sony a7R III in Arizona, back in Seattle we slapped the camera in front of our studio scene to get a close look at its image quality. See how it stacks up against the competition.
Fujifilm's X-A3 has a one-of-a-kind sensor when compared to the rest of their current lineup, so how could we resist putting it in front of our studio scene straightaway? Check out how it compares with its more expensive X-Trans brethren.

To dismiss the Huawei P9's imager as 'just another smartphone camera' would be unfair. Huawei claims that by using one monochrome and one RGB sensor, the camera is 100% more sensitive to light than its competitors. We found it to be enjoyably similar to shooting with a dedicated camera, but at the end of the day, it's still a smartphone. Read more

Announced back in February, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II has at long last made its way through our door. We're just itching to get it out and put its 20.2MP sensor and 14 fps burst rate to work shooting some fast action, but first we put it through our slate of studio image quality tests. Read more

When the Nikon D5 arrived in our office on Friday we immediately wanted to answer a few questions: How is the low light performance? How good is the autofocus? How is the Raw dynamic range? We've found that while the D5's sensor is clearly optimised for low-light image making, it represents a rather surprising - and disappointing - step backwards in terms of base ISO dynamic range.

Just moments after the Nikon D5 rolled into our office we whisked it into our studio, putting the flagship FX-format DSLR in front of our test scene. We were curious to see exactly what the 20.8MP CMOS sensor is capable of, and what its impressive ISO range looks like. Read more

Panasonic's ZS60 puts a lot of enticing features in a very small package. It's an iteration on a tried-and-true travel zoom formula that combines a 24-720mm equiv. lens, 18MP sensor, 3" touchscreen and a built-in electronic viewfinder. We spent some time outside with the ZS60, even managing to catch a few breaks in the late winter clouds, and have some samples to show for it. Read more

The Ricoh GR II is a modest update to the well-regarded GR, and the high-quality formula remains: an 18.3mm (28mm equiv.) F2.8 lens in a compact body with a 16MP APS-C sensor inside. While the update doesn't bring image quality changes, it does offer a chance to run the new camera through our studio test scene, as it will be an obvious competitor to the Fujifilm X70 when it arrives.

The sensor in the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) is an interesting one. Without a color filter array, the 24MP CMOS sensor doesn't lose sharpness through interpolation, much like a Merrill-generation Foveon sensor or Pentax's pixel shift mode found in the K-3 II. The catch is, of course, no color. Is the extra sharpness worth the cost? Read more

The Sony RX1R II is the kind of camera that turns heads. With a full-frame 42.2MP sensor, fixed 35mm F2 lens, optical variable low pass filter and a 399-point phase-detect AF system that's much improved over its predecessor, it's just about in a class of its own. We've had a full-production model for a few hours - just enough time to get it into the studio to see how it handles our test scene. Read more

Canon's PowerShot G9 X and G5 X offer two distinctly different shooting experiences, but are based around the same 20.2MP 1"-type sensor. The G5 X provides an SLR-style grip and an EVF with a 24-100mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens, while the smaller G9 X offers a 28-84mm equiv. F2.0-4.9 lens. We've put them through our standard studio scene testing. Read more

Leica has just unveiled its first full-frame mirrorless ILC, the SL Type 601. The new camera uses a modified version of the 24MP CMOS sensor from the Leica Q in tandem with a Maestro II processor, allowing ISO 50-50,000 shooting, 4K video recording and 11 fps continuous shooting. With early access to a full production SL, we've been able to test it against our studio test scene as well as in a variety of real-world shooting conditions. Read more
As far as pocketable cameras go, the DxO ONE is the most likely to fit into the smallest of pockets. Built as a companion to Apple mobile devices, it connects directly via integrated Lightning connector to bring your iPhone a 20MP 1"-type sensor and 32mm equivalent F1.8 lens. We put its standard shooting mode as well as its SuperRAW mode up against our studio test scene. Read more

Nikon's D810A is an astrophotography-oriented version of the D810. It's the first full-frame camera dedicated to astrophotography, and is better able to capture the hydrogen alpha spectral line. It also expands long exposure options, and has garnered speculation as to improvements in low light capabilities. Take a look at its high ISO and color performance in our studio scene. Read more

UPDATED: We've added low light results to our studio test for the RX100 IV. Sony's latest RX100, the Cyber-shot RX100 IV, brings the manufacturer's stacked CMOS sensor design to the 1"-type sensor size for the first time. The 20MP chip, also in the Cyber-shot RX10 II, pushes all the pixel circuitry onto a separate layer, creating room for high-speed processing within the chip. See how it performs in our studio test scene. Read more

We've updated our Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R First Impressions to include studio test samples from final production versions of the cameras. The 5DS and 5DS R share a 50MP full-frame CMOS sensor and are identical in every way except for one: the 5DS contains an anti-aliasing filter, while the 5DS R has a self-canceling filter. While we've previously tested a beta version of the 5DS R, we've finally been able to put final production versions of the two cameras through our studio. Read more
