Best Compact Camera (UK) Under £350

thumbnail

27th February 2017 £329.00 The new Lumix DC-FZ82 replaces the 3 year-old FZ72 as Panasonic's most affordable super-zoom camera, with only the 60x, 20-1200mm F2.8-5.9 zoom lens remaining the same. In most other aspects, the FZ82 clearly benefits from 3 years of camera development, inheriting many trickle-down features from higher up the company's extensive range... Read the Review.

Best Compact Camera (UK) Under £500

31st October 2017 £499.00 Although the GoPro HERO6 is primarily a video camera, the fact that you can use it for stills in situations where you wouldn’t be able to use other cameras (or your phone) makes it a versatile option for a range of different photographers - not just those who are into extreme sport. Read the Review.

7th March 2017 £449.00 Although owners of the original Canon PowerShot G9 X aren't going to be too excited by the improvements on offer, the new Mark II does represent a minor step forward for Canon's most pocket-friendly compact camera, particularly in its operational speed. Read the Review.

Best Mirrorless Camera (UK) Under £1000

thumbnail

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.

23rd October 2017 £849.00 Whilst the previous X-E2S felt like an exercise in adding a few extra features to an existing design to keep the Fujifilm accountants happy, this revised model does at least feel like a brand new camera, one that gives you even more choice from the excellent Fujifilm range. Read the Review.

thumbnail

19th September 2017 £629.00 So while E-M10 Mark II owners won't be rushing to upgrade (unless you really, really want 4K video), the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III is a solid, if rather unexciting, update of a camera design that a lot of people love, ourselves included, all at a very competitive price-point in today's market. Read the Review.

thumbnail

6th March 2017 £799.00 The Fujifilm X-T20 once again successfully repackages the key features of the flagship X-series camera, the X-T2, into a smaller, lighter and cheaper body, resulting in a compelling mid-range mirrorless camera that offers a lot of advanced functionality... Read the Review.

Best Mirrorless Camera (UK) Over £1000

thumbnail

26th March 2018 £1,999.00 The Sony A7 III is quite simply the best camera available at its price-point. It's good enough to tempt some people to stretch their budget further, and even good enough for some to save money by not having to look higher up the range. It may be "basic" in its current positioning at the bottom of the Sony full-frame line-up, but it's definitely outstanding in all other regards. Read the Review.

2nd March 2018 £1,699.00 ...the X-H1 is another in a long line of excellent Fujifilm cameras, which for many people will be a natural fit... Read the Review.

thumbnail

31st January 2018 £2,199.00 The Panasonic Lumix GH5S is a specialist tool that isn't going to appeal to everyone, but stills photographers and especially looking videographers looking for the ultimate low-light camera will find a lot to like. Read the Review.

thumbnail

23rd January 2018 £3,200.00 ​The A7R III is the most well-balanced Sony camera to date, offering a compelling mix of resolution, speed and size that also makes it one of the best cameras that we've ever reviewed, be that mirrorless or DSLR. Read the Review.

thumbnail

30th November 2017 £1,499.00 ​The Lumix G9 is the most well-specified, well-built and well-rounded Panasonic mirrorless camera to date, offering a long list of mouth-watering features with performance and image quality to back them up. This is one camera that can handle almost everything that you'd care to throw at it... Read the Review.

Best DSLR Camera (UK) Under £1000

thumbnail

24th July 2017 £579.00 Available in 3 attractive colours - classic Canon Black, White, and Silver & Tan - the new Canon EOS 200D is both a compelling first DSLR camera for beginners, and an attractive proposition for more experienced users looking for a smaller, yet still very capable second EOS body. Read the Review.

Best DSLR Camera (UK) Over £1000

thumbnail

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.

thumbnail

14th September 2017 £3,499.00 Offering a compelling balance of size and speed, the Nikon D850 is the best all-round DSLR camera that we've ever had the pleasure of reviewing. This is really the one camera that can do it all, from landscapes to action, reportage to weddings, the D850 handles it all with aplomb... Read the Review.

thumbnail

6th July 2017 £1,299.00 Overall, the Nikon D7500 is an great all-round enthusiast camera for those looking for their next step up DSLR, especially for those who don’t have pockets deep enough for the D500. Read the Review.

thumbnail

16th March 2017 £1,099.00 Coming on like a K-1 that's been shrunk in the wash, the Pentax KP inherits lots of its big brother's key features in a smaller, lighter and cheaper package. Read the Review.

thumbnail

2nd February 2017 £3,199.00 Sony has produced an excellent camera with the A99 II, following on from the excellent work of the original A99. We may have thought that Sony was giving up on its SLT range as it has been concentrating on its E-mount range for some time, but with this camera, it shows that the company is still concerned with larger, more traditional cameras too.

Best Phone Camera (UK)

thumbnail

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.

thumbnail

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.

thumbnail

23rd April 2018 £599.00 Overall, the standard P20 is a very impressive device, and definitely worth considering if your primary concern is the quality of your phone’s onboard camera. Read the Review.

thumbnail

10th April 2018 £799.00 Overall, the Huawei P20 Pro is without doubt the best smartphone you can buy at the moment if your primary concern is photographic capability. It’s also just as good, if not better, than most “standard” compact cameras too - adding another nail in the coffin of the point-and-shoot market. Read the Review.
