Best Camera (UK)
We're constantly asked the question "What is the best digital camera?" and below we've listed our top-rated compact, mirrorless, DSLR and phone cameras. Our recommendations are also available with US prices.
27th February 2017 £329.00 The new Lumix DC-FZ82 replaces the 3 year-old FZ72 as Panasonic's most affordable super-zoom camera, with only the 60x, 20-1200mm F2.8-5.9 zoom lens remaining the same. In most other aspects, the FZ82 clearly benefits from 3 years of camera development, inheriting many trickle-down features from higher up the company's extensive range... Read the Review.
31st October 2017 £499.00 Although the GoPro HERO6 is primarily a video camera, the fact that you can use it for stills in situations where you wouldn’t be able to use other cameras (or your phone) makes it a versatile option for a range of different photographers - not just those who are into extreme sport.

7th March 2017 £449.00 Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G9 X aren't going to be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a minor step forward for Canon's most pocket-friendly compact camera, particularly in its operational speed. Read the Review.
5th January 2017 £499.00 If you’re looking for something to act as a step up from your mobile phone camera, something like the Panasonic Lumix DC-GX800 would make an excellent choice. It’s nicely small so you won’t feel like you’re having to lug around a huge camera with you all the time, but the improvement to your images will still be very noticeable - even if you just stick with the kit lens at first.

23rd October 2017 £849.00 Whilst the previous X-E2S felt like an exercise in adding a few extra features to an existing design to keep the Fujifilm accountants happy, this revised model does at least feel like a brand new camera, one that gives you even more choice from the excellent Fujifilm range. Read the Review.
19th September 2017 £629.00 So while E-M10 Mark II owners won't be rushing to upgrade (unless you really, really want 4K video), the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a solid, if rather unexciting, update of a camera design that a lot of people love, ourselves included, all at a very competitive price-point in today's market. Read the Review.
6th March 2017 £799.00 The Fujifilm X-T20 once again successfully repackages the key features of the flagship X-series camera, the X-T2, into a smaller, lighter and cheaper body, resulting in a compelling mid-range mirrorless camera that offers a lot of advanced functionality... Read the Review.
26th March 2018 £1,999.00 The Sony A7 III is quite simply the best camera available at its price-point. It's good enough to tempt some people to stretch their budget further, and even good enough for some to save money by not having to look higher up the range. It may be "basic" in its current positioning at the bottom of the Sony full-frame line-up, but it's definitely outstanding in all other regards. Read the Review.
30th November 2017 £1,499.00 The Lumix G9 is the most well-specified, well-built and well-rounded Panasonic mirrorless camera to date, offering a long list of mouth-watering features with performance and image quality to back them up. This is one camera that can handle almost everything that you'd care to throw at it... Read the Review.
24th July 2017 £579.00 Available in 3 attractive colours - classic Canon Black, White, and Silver & Tan - the new Canon EOS 200D is both a compelling first DSLR camera for beginners, and an attractive proposition for more experienced users looking for a smaller, yet still very capable second EOS body. Read the Review.
14th September 2017 £3,499.00 Offering a compelling balance of size and speed, the Nikon D850 is the best all-round DSLR camera that we've ever had the pleasure of reviewing. This is really the one camera that can do it all, from landscapes to action, reportage to weddings, the D850 handles it all with aplomb... Read the Review.
2nd February 2017 £3,199.00 Sony has produced an excellent camera with the A99 II, following on from the excellent work of the original A99. We may have thought that Sony was giving up on its SLT range as it has been concentrating on its E-mount range for some time, but with this camera, it shows that the company is still concerned with larger, more traditional cameras too. Read the Review.
10th April 2018 £799.00 Overall, the Huawei P20 Pro is without doubt the best smartphone you can buy at the moment if your primary concern is photographic capability. It’s also just as good, if not better, than most “standard” compact cameras too - adding another nail in the coffin of the point-and-shoot market. Read the Review.
5th January 2018 £850.00 Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a great option for those who are interested in both a dual lens setup plus the ability to take a good degree of manual control. It also looks sleek and stylish, with a huge screen which really makes your images pop. Read the Review.
