The Nikon D5200 was Nikon’s mid-range DSLR camera for 2013. ON release it sat above the Nikon D3200 but below the Nikon D7100. You can’t buy one new today, but there’s a lot of Nikon reconditioned models available on eBay as well as the usual second-hand buys. It’s three years old now, so is it a bargain or should you buy something ...

Nikon D5300 review: A camera with a fantastic sensor

1507993727 nikon d5300 review a camera with a fantastic sensor 300x160 - Nikon D5300 review: A camera with a fantastic sensor

it has been a few years since we first reviewed the Nikon D5300, where it’s still a perfectly capable device, even if Nikon’s rivals have been battling it out. Since launch, Nikon released the D5500 (not long after the D5300’s launch mind you) with its superb sensor yet disappointing kit lens and middling controls. Sure, it’s a fine camera, but ...

Price, rating and specs based on the EF-S 18-55mm III kit Canon’s EOS line of camera’s have set a particularly high standard and a well-deserved reputation over the years. Typically, they’ve been quite expensive, even if they usually bolster high-quality specs. It was a shock then, to find their 2014 model to start at just £350, the lowest their EOS camera ...

It’s not easy making a slim compact camera that excels in low light. This usually requires a large sensor or a wide-aperture lens – ideally both – but both tend to result in a bulky camera. There are exceptions, such as the stunning Fujifilm X100S, but it dispenses with a zoom function to achieve its just-about-pocket-sized design. For those who ...

1507963239 canon 700d review more than the sum of its parts 300x160 - Canon 700D review - More than the sum of its parts

The Canon 700D is one of the greatest mid-range cameras of all time. However, cameras like the 700D aren’t novels or albums and so, it must eventually stand aside for something better still. In this case that’ll be the Canon 750D and 760D, the two cameras are technically identical, but the 760D caters for enthusiasts (with a top-mounted information LCD and ...

The Nikon D3300 was first announced back in January 2014 and it’s more than three years old now. That may seem like a long time ago, but in the camera industry things work a bit differently to the rest of the technology industry and often what seems like an ancient product is still perfectly viable.

1507940081 nikon d810 review first look release date and uk price 300x160 - Nikon D810 review - first look, release date and UK price

When Nikon released the D610, it was a minor update to the D600, and created mainly in response to a technical problem, with many customers reporting dirt on the sensor that was creating spots on their images. Our natural response to the announcement of the Nikon D810, then, was understandably to ask if this was a similar release – a ...
