Pentax Q

Pentax Q Review thumbnail

The new Pentax Q is unlike any other camera on the market - an interchangeable lens model that's as small as a compact yet as full-featured as a DSLR. But can it turn more than heads and persuade you to part with £500 / $800 of your hard-earned cash? Read our Pentax Q review to find out...

Ricoh GR Digital IV

Ricoh GR Digital IV Review thumbnail

Samsung NX200 Review thumbnail

The Samsung NX200 is a new mirrorless compact system camera that aims for the middle ground between the DSLR-like NX10/11 and consumer-oriented NX100 models, designed to appeal to beginners and prosumers alike.
