Photography Blog Camera of the Year Award 2018

We're revealing our favourite products from 2018 in our annual awards, looking back at the essential photography kit that helped to define 2018.

The Camera of the Year 2018 award goes to the Sony A7 III.

“Sony referred to the A7 III as a "basic model" during their early promotion, whether jokingly or not, but the A7 III is far from being basic. Indeed, it's so well-specced on paper that it surprised a lot of people who weren't expecting such a well-appointed camera, and thankfully that promise has been borne out in practice - the new Sony A7 III is an outstanding camera, and a veritable steal considering its price-tag.”

Read our full Sony A7 III review.

Congratulations to Sony!

Honorable mentions go to the Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z 6, Nikon Z 7 and the Sony A7R III.

Photography Blog DSLR Camera of the Year Award 2018

We're revealing our favourite products from 2018 in our annual awards, looking back at the essential photography kit that helped to define 2018.

The DSLR Camera of the Year 2018 award goes to the Nikon D3500.

“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. A couple of things have been sacrificed along the way, but overall the Nikon D3500 is a better entry-level DSLR camera than the previous model.”

Congratulations to Nikon!
