Canon EOS M6 review: Canon's best mirrorless yet, but is that good enough?

By

The Canon take on the mirrorless camera market has been interesting: having lackadaisically introduced the M-series system in a bid to avoid undercutting its own DSLR business, it had taken Canon years to establish a more viable M-series camera. That... >>

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II preview: The crossover camera

Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II looks great, but has a surprising omission

By

Canon has taken the wraps off the PowerShot G9 X Mark II, updating the 2015 forebear, but keeping the same retro good looks. The big focus of this compact camera - which remains properly pocketable - is the 1-in type sensor at its heart, larger than... >>

Canon EOS M5 review: 'Mirrorless 80D' fails to faze its compact system competition

By

It's fair to say we've been highly critical of Canon's compact system camera EOS M line. For a simple reason, though: the Japanese company's mirrorless cameras simply haven't been able to stand up to the competition. And with the current line-up - think... >>

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II review: Nip and tuck triumphs

By

Canon was late to the 1-inch sensor compact cameras game, following in the Sony's RX100 footsteps to deliver the original PowerShot G7 X back in 2014. In the period since then this larger-than-average sensor sector has become a battleground. Nobody wants... >>

If you're looking to drop a four-figure wedge of cash of a mid-range DSLR - one that'll last you for a good stretch of time - then Canon is one of the names that so often floats to the surface; the crema on the coffee, if you will. And in the 80D that... >>

Canon PowerShot G9 X review: Touching the void

By

On the evidence of the Canon PowerShot G9 X it's time to wave goodbye to the company's older, small-sensor PowerShot cameras. Why? Because the G9 X packs a large 1-inch sensor size into a slender body, making a good case to out-and-out replace models... >>
