Ah, the compact superzoom. Over the years they've got smaller yet, somehow, have managed to cram more and more features in. In the case of the Canon PowerShot SX720 HS it's all about the zoom - 40x optical zoom, no less. Which is quite a feat. In the... >>

Canon PowerShot G5 X review: Chunky but comprehensive compact

By

It's all change in the camera market, with the focus on throwaway compacts all but dead in the face of smartphone domination. Canon is well known for its chunky-but-capable compact cameras, with 2013's G16 seemingly representing the end of that range,... >>

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... >>

Canon EOS M10 hands-on: Canon’s weak mirrorless line-up continues

By

Using the new Canon EOS M10 is like taking a step back in time. And not in a good way. The original EOS M from 2012 was bottom of the mirrorless pack at launch, the M2 never came to Europe, and even the M3, announced earlier in 2015, was behind the mirrorless... >>
