Best Mirrorless Camera Under $1000

23rd November 2020 $999.00 Overall, the X-S10 successfully takes the Fujifilm X-series in a new direction, unashamedly attempting to appeal to a broader audience, but still retaining the same image quality and colour science that Fuji fans have come to know and love. Read the Review.

3rd February 2020 $750.00 As it features exactly the same 24.2 megapixel sensor as the A6400 and A6600 cameras, along with the latest Bionz X image processor, you'd be hard-pressed to tell any difference between the image quality from the A6100 and its more expensive siblings. Read the Review.

23rd September 2020 $1,999.00 The new Lumix S5 may be the cheapest camera in Panasonic's full-frame lineup, but in many ways it's also the most appealing, especially if you regularly shoot a mix of stills and video. Read the Review.

16th September 2020 $3,500.00 All things considered, the Sony A7S III is the most capable hybrid 4K video camera available today.

Best DSLR Camera Over $1000

29th October 2020 $799.00 Overall the Sony Xperia 5 II is a great option for those looking for an ideal all-rounder, but who aren't tied to the idea of a camera from one of the bigger-hitters in the mobile arena, such as Apple and Samsung. Read the Review.
