Best Compact Camera (UK) Under £500

6th November 2018 £450.00 ​The Sony Cyber-shot HX99 is one of the best travel-zoom cameras on the market, offering a compelling mix of great still and video image quality and an upgraded feature-set... Read the Review.

13th September 2018 £499.00 ​The new Fujifilm XF10 is a largely successful attempt to woo both smartphone upgraders and serious enthusiasts, ultimately satisfying both camps thanks to the combination of excellent image quality and diminutive size. Read the Review.

Best Mirrorless Camera (UK) Under £1000

9th May 2019 £899.00 ​Panasonic have moved the Lumix G90 in a different direction to previous versions. They've added several major new features to make it more video-friendly, namely the unlimited recording time, free built-in V-Log L profile, slow-motion recording at 120fps, and the addition of a headphone jack, making it a great B-cam to accompany the flagship GH5/GH5s cameras. Read the Review.

12th March 2019 £849.00 Fujifilm have once again hit a home run with the launch of the X-T30. As the successor to their best-selling camera ever, the X-T20, this new version has a lot to live up to, but thankfully there's lots to like and little to complain about, something that we've repeatedly said about almost all recent X-series cameras. If you want most of the flagship X-T3's features and performance in a smaller, cheaper body, then the X-T30 is something of a no-brainer. Read the Review.

19th July 2018 £619.00 ​The Fujifilm X-T100 expands the X-T family of cameras, offering the mini-DSLR styling at a more affordable price-point than the X-T20 and flagship X-T2 models, whilst also adding a couple of unique features of its own... Read the Review.

22nd February 2018 £699.00 Bottom line; the Panasonic Lumix GX9 is a very able and affordable offering in the Lumix G series of cameras. Against the GX80 there are numerous refinements and plenty of reasons to go for the GX9 instead. Read the Review.

Best Mirrorless Camera (UK) Over £1000

11th March 2019 £3,400.00 ​Panasonic's first attempt at a 35mm full-frame mirrorless camera is an impressive one, offering a long list of mouth-watering features, superb image quality, and great handling. Read the Review.

4th December 2018 £4,000.00 The GFX 50R blurs the boundaries between 35mm full-frame and medium format more than ever before, bringing the larger format into closer reach of high-end DSLR and mirrorless users both financially and in terms of the overall system size. If you've ever wanted to try medium format photography but been put off by the size and cost, then the new Fujifilm GFX 50R removes both of those reasons for not doing so. Read the Review.

29th November 2018 £2,100.00 Image quality is fantastic, and it’s really only likely to be those that really desire to have a super high resolution sensor to work with that should discount the Z6 over the Z7. There are also benefits that the lower resolution brings – most notably better performance in low light and the ability to shoot at faster speeds. Read the Review.

4th October 2018 £1,399.00 The Fujifilm X-T3 is the best APS-C mirrorless camera on the market, whether you're a photographer, videographer or a mixture of both. Read the Review.

1st October 2018 £3,399.00 For a first iteration of a brand new system and mount, the Nikon Z7 is really quite remarkable – it’s a truly exciting time in the market and it feels like Nikon has got it right this time. Read the Review.

Best DSLR Camera (UK) Under £500

29th October 2018 £499.00 ​The new Nikon D3500 retains the same core feature-set as its predecessor, the D3400, but presents it in a smaller, lighter and more logical design that's very reminiscent of the mid-range D5600 camera. Read the Review.

Best DSLR Camera (UK) Over £1000

16th April 2018 £1,799.00 ​The Pentax K-1 Mark II remains an excellent 35mm full-frame DSLR camera, but it feels more like a stop-gap release rather than a fully-fledged successor to the original K-1. Read the Review.

Best Phone Camera (UK)

1st November 2018 £899.00 It’ll be interesting to see what Huawei does next to follow on from the P20 Pro next year, but for now at least, the Mate 20 Pro is quite probably the smartphone we’d most highly recommend for photographers. Read the Review.

26th October 2018 £899.00 The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has some very appealing camera features, and while it’s not a huge leap forward from the S9+, the extra functionality found in the S Pen make it appealing for existing Note users. The new software functionality in the native camera app is also interesting and seems to work well. Read the Review.

22nd October 2018 £999.00 If you like iPhones for iOS you’ll be extremely pleased with what the camera can produce – as it’s still very, very good... Read the Review.

25th June 2018 £400.00 These days, there’s a good smartphone available for the majority of people, no matter what their budget. The Honor 10, with it’s £399 price tag falls squarely into the “mid-range” segment of the market, but gives you a lot of value considering it’s relatively cheap. Read the Review.

21st June 2018 £469.00 At under £470, the OnePlus 6 is without doubt one of the best value phones currently available on the market. It is not the cheapest, but what you get for your money makes it a great investment. Read the Review.
