Panasonic LX100 review: Still a compact tour de force

1507931751 panasonic lx100 review still a compact tour de force 300x160 - Panasonic LX100 review: Still a compact tour de force

The ongoing fight between premium compact cameras is a fierce one. Better sensors and fancier lenses are bringing up overall image quality and performance and the quality of controls and viewfinders put plenty of expensive SLRs to shame. It’s wonderful to see that the Panasonic LX100 is one of the best premium compact cameras I’ve ever seen, even if it is ...

Nikon D750 review: An outstandingly good full-frame SLR camera

1507923954 nikon d750 review an outstandingly good full frame slr camera 300x160 - Nikon D750 review: An outstandingly good full-frame SLR camera

Full-frame SLRs have become a lot more affordable in the last couple of years, with the Nikon D610 and Canon EOS 6D both currently available for around £1,700 (body only). They’re both excellent cameras, but inevitably there are a few restrictions and compromises compared to pricier models in their respective ranges. For us, the most significant drawback is that their autofocus ...

Nikon D610 review | Expert Reviews

1507916164 nikon d610 review expert reviews 300x160 - Nikon D610 review | Expert Reviews

Full-frame photography underwent a transformation in 2012. Prices fell dramatically with the appearance of the Canon EOS 6D and Nikon D600, both of which cost around £1,000 less than previous entry-level full-frame SLRs. The Nikon 610 is the replacement model for the latter, offering some minor updates and fixes for problems the original experienced. Originally, the D600 triumphed in our review, as ...

Nikon D5500 review: A good camera, but lacks consistency

1507908436 nikon d5500 review a good camera but lacks consistency 300x160 - Nikon D5500 review: A good camera, but lacks consistency

We reviewed the Nikon D5500 back in 2015 and has since dropped in price. It can now be found for around £436 and can be found for even cheaper if bought second hand through eBay. The camera is hard to source as it has been discontinued, but is it now worth its price tag? The Nikon D5300 that we also reviewed was a ...

Nikon D7200 review: Still worthy of recommendation?

1507900865 nikon d7200 review still worthy of recommendation 300x160 - Nikon D7200 review: Still worthy of recommendation?

It’s now more than a year since we saw Nikon’s D7200 first hit store shelves. It’s a line of cameras I’ve always greatly admired, with nicely sized viewfinders, fancy autofocus and great metering systems, it’s always been a range I’ve been particularly fond of, especially when you take into account the abundance of physical controls. Nikon’s D7 line is ideal ...

Buying a camera can be a daunting process, with a huge range of different shapes, sizes, specs and features to look out for. In this guide you’ll find everything from hulking semi-pro DSLRs to pocketable compacts, and while some of the cameras here are getting on a bit, that doesn’t mean you should discount them completely – older models are ...

Canon EOS 750D review: Remains a great mid-price choice

1507885487 canon eos 750d review remains a great mid price choice 300x160 - Canon EOS 750D review: Remains a great mid-price choice

Some cameras are packed with attention-grabbing features, but I think the average SLR owner would prefer to be dazzled by the quality of their photos than by the camera itself. That seems to be the thinking behind Canon’s mid-price consumer SLRs, of which the EOS 750D is the probably Canon’s best example. The more recent model – the Canon EOS ...

Canon EOS 1300D review: Doesn’t quite cut the mustard

1507866947 canon eos 1300d review doesnt quite cut the mustard 300x160 - Canon EOS 1300D review: Doesn't quite cut the mustard

The Canon EOS 1300D is the company’s latest entry-level digital SLR camera. It has quite a lot in in common with the more expensive Canon EOS 750D except that it omits various extra features that the 750D and its predecessors has accrued over the years. That’s not the only camera in the Canon range that the 1300D is similar to, though. ...
