    Nikon Coolpix P340 review

    By 1 April 2014

    When it comes to high-end compact cameras there are lots of options out there. Most of those, however, happen to cost a pretty penny. Although the Nikon Coolpix P340 couldn't be called "budget" it does undercut many of its competitors on the price front...

    The original Samsung Galaxy Camera was notable because, although it wasn't the first dedicated camera to use the Android operating system as its user interface, it was the first to integrate an up-to-date version of the operating system with great success....

    Hands-on: Panasonic Lumix GH4 review

    By 10 March 2014

    Ahead of the curve - that’s the phrase that first sprang to mind when we saw an early version of the Panasonic Lumix GH4. This consumer compact system camera is the first to deliver 4K video, the Ultra HD format that’s going to be the next big thing....

    Panasonic Lumix TZ60 review

    By 26 February 2014

    The prospect of the Panasonic Lumix TZ60 (or ZS40 for our American readers) excited us when we first saw it because it's the latest in the line of what we would consider the very best of the all-round "travel zoom" compact cameras. And if you want something...

    By 19 February 2014

    These days choosing a camera around £500 is tricky. You can pick a DSLR like the Nikon D3300, or you could go for a mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera, or even a top-spec compact instead. That makes the selection process even harder than ever before....

    Samsung NX30 review

    By 18 February 2014

    The Samsung NX30 is the latest edition to the company's steadily evolving line of compact system cameras, assuming top-dog position and unseating the visually comparable NX20. Its headline spec 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor might sound eerily familiar -...

    By 12 February 2014

    Looking for a huge zoom? Then look no further. The Sony Cyber-shot H400 has a whopping 63x optical zoom lens that provides a 24.5-1550mm equivalent focal length. But can it deliver as big as its features suggest? Sadly, no. We got to play with the H400...
