The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 is a new Compact System Camera designed to appeal to frustrated compact users looking to upgrade to something better but not necessarily bigger. Combining an innovative touch-screen interface with a simple control layout, tiny body and DSLR-like image quality and features, does the GF3 deliver both the portability of a compact and the professionalism of a DSLR?

Samsung NX100

The new NX100 is Samsung's answer to the Panasonic GF, Olympus PEN and Sony NEX - a mirrorless, compact system camera with interchangeable lenses and the attraction of a large APS-C sensor. As well as being smaller and lighter than the more DSLR-like NX10 model, the NX100 offers an innovative i-Function button which allows you to change the camera's key settings simply by pressing a button and turning the focus ring of the lens. With a retail price of around £449.99 / $599.99 with the new 20-50mm kit lens, the Samsung NX100 also offers fantastic value for money.
