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

Samsung NX100 Review thumbnail

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.

Sony NEX-3

The NEX-3 is the second mirrorless system camera from Sony and the baby brother of the NEX-5. With a 14 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, 720p HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen and external flash, the plastic-bodied NEX-3 undercuts the NEX-5 in terms of price but offers virtually all of the same features. Find out if it can match the performance and image quality too in our in-depth Sony NEX-3 review, complete with sample JPEGs, RAW files, and movies.

Sony NEX-5

Sony have joined the likes of Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung in the mirrorless system camera market with the release of the NEX-5 and NEX-3. With a 14 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, full 1080i HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen, optional external flash and two available lenses on launch, the NEX-5 certainly seems well-equipped to take on the already established competition.
