Olympus Stylus SH-2

Category: Beginner

Compact travel zoom. The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a compact long-zoom camera ideal for when you want something compact, light and with enough zoom power for your travels. It has a cool retro look, comes in all-black or black/silver and sports a 24x optical zoom lens in a compact body.

An advanced 5-Axis Image Stabilization compensates for camera movements when using that long reach to help you capture sharp, blur-free results. FAST AF Technology provides blazingly fast focusing in any light or zoom, and the convenient Touch AF Shutter feature lets you instantly focus and shoot with a single touch of the 3.0-in.

You can take RAW, and advanced shooters can switch to full Manual mode. Get creative with Art Filters, PhotoStory options, and Panorama Modes.

If you love night photography, a new Live Composite technology extracts the brightest areas from a sequence of interval shots and combines them into one perfectly exposed image. Plus, customized Nightscape Modes capture night scenes, cityscapes, and star trails portraits and videos.

Movies are captured in Full HD video at 1080/60p. Use High-Speed Movie to stretch scenes in slow (120fps) or super-slow motion (240fps). Time Lapse Movie compresses up to five hours of footage into a short 20 second time-lapse video. Photo in Movie allows you to capture still images (JPEG or RAW) while recording video.

The Olympus SH-2 features built-in Wi-Fi for shooting, sharing, and uploading your photo and video. You need to download the free Olympus Image Share app on your smart device. You can also compose your image, control and operate the camera remotely, and geotag photos all from your smart device.

Nikon P900

Nikon COOLPIX P900

Nikon COOLPIX P900

Category: Beginner, Serious

Type: Long-Zoom Travel Camera


Eighty-three times optical zoom. The Nikon COOLPIX P900 is a long-zoom camera with a spectacular 2000mm equivalent focal length reach. There’s not much that you won’t be able to shoot with the P900, from macro, wide-angle to super telephoto. It’s all captured onto a 1/2.3″ 16 Megapixel CMOS image sensor.

The 83x optical zoom lens has focal length of 4.3-357mm (angle of view equivalent to that of 24-2000mm lens in 35mm [135] format), allowing you to capture large vistas as well as zoom in close to faraway subjects. Because at that long reach, it’s easy to lose sight of your subject while zoomed in, the P900 has a nifty Snap-Back Zoom button. Press it and the lens quickly zooms out to allow you to find your subject; release it and the lens zooms right back in. A 5 stops (at 350mm equiv.) Dual Detect Optical VR (Vibration Reduction, aka image stabilization) helps keep your photos sharp and your videos steady.

Macro mode lets you focus an incredible 1cm (0.4 in.) to your subject. Advanced shooters can switch to semi-auto and full Manual using PASM shooting modes.

Movies are captured in Full HD video at 1920 x 1080/60p with stereo sound. You can connect to an HDTV (requires optional cable). A Time-lapse Movie function records changes that occur over time into an approximately 10 s time-lapse movie.

The Nikon P900 features built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. Nikon snapbridge allows you to send photos wirelessly from your Wi-Fi & NFC enabled COOLPIX P900 to a compatible smartphone or tablet. You can share your photos on the go, even in remote locations, and even use a smartphone or tablet to control your camera.

Built-in GPS allows you to record the exact location of each shot you take and to share your journeys on Google Maps™, Google+™, and other social networking sites, or with Nikon View NX2 software. Points of Interest (POI) shows you nearby photo-ops like scenic lookouts and historic landmarks.

The COOLPIX P900 has a 3.0-in. swiveling Vari-angle LCD (921k-dot) display and a high-resolution (921k-dot) eye-level viewfinder (EVF). An eye-sensor automatically switches from viewfinder to LCD and vice-versa.

The Nikon COOLPIX P-900 will appeal to those desiring an all-in-one super long zoom camera.

Fujifilm X-A2

Fujifilm X-A2

Category: Beginner, Serious

Type: Compact Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera


Selfie-ready compact system camera. The Fujifilm X-A2 is a compact mirrorless that accepts interchangeable lenses, sports a large 16MP APS-C image sensor, takes RAW, and puts total control of the camera right in your hands with automatic as well as semi-auto and full manual PASM shooting modes.

Looks like a pretty serious camera? It is, but who says serious photographers can’t have fun? Indeed, the Fujifilm X-A2 has a large 3.0-in. LCD (920K-dot) that flips up 175° to face forward so you can view yourself and friends while taking a selfie. When you flip the LCD that way, the camera assumes you are taking a selfie and automatically switches on Eye Detection Auto Focus to focus on the eye (you can let the camera decide which eye to focus on or select Left or Right). For best results, you would want to attach a wide-angle lens for wide coverage, e.g. the FUJINON LENS XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II [24-76mm] 3x optical zoom kit lens.

The Fujifilm X-A2 features built-in Wi-Fi for wireless transfer of images from camera to PC (PC AutoSave), to your smart phone or tablet using the FUJIFILM Camera App, and to the instax SHARE SP-1 Smartphone Printer for instant prints.

Fujifilm’s popular Film Simulation now includes CLASSIC CHROME. Advanced Filters let the photographer with the artistic mind create something unique.

Beginners will appreciate Advanced SR AUTO shooting mode that automatically recognizes 58 scene types, and then selects the most appropriate shutter speed, aperture and other settings. Or, manually select the scene mode yourself. Advanced photographers can switch to one of the PASM modes.

A built-in flash automatically adjusts its output depending on the scene, e.g. clearly and brightly captures faces under strong backlit or dark conditions, and prevents the washout of the subject and background when shooting macro shots. When even more light is required, you can attach a separately sold TTL flash into the hot shoe.

The Fujifilm X-A2 will appeal to beginners who want to take high quality selfie images with a camera that allows them to grow into serious photography.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100

The Panasonic revs up the enthusiast premium compact fixed-lens camera category with the new LUMIX DMC-LX100, which incorporates a large high sensitivity Four Thirds sensor to enable shooting at high ISO with minimum noise, a built-in Live View Finder with a 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution, dedicated control dials for intuitive manual operation, a redesigned bright F1.7-2.8 LEICA 3.1x optical zoom lens and 4K video capability — a combination of high-end features not currently available in other premium compact fixed-lens cameras.

In design, the LX100 reaches back to the Panasonic LC1. It is beautiful in either the all-black or silver version, and looks really elegant with not one unwarranted line, bump or color. It thankfully features a dedicated Shutter Speed Dial, Aperture Ring and Exposure Exposure Compensation Dial.

The LX100 competes with other similar cameras with a large sensor. The LX7, which it replaces, had a small 1/1.7-in. sensor; the LX100 uses a large Four Thirds sensor which is about 5x bigger than the 1/1.7-in. sensor and 2x than the 1-in. sensor used in most of the other cameras it competes with.

Panasonic has upped the ante with 4K video recording capability. The LX100 also introduces a new way of photo creation called “4K Photo”. By grabbing a 3840×2160 8-megapixel equivalent image from the 4K video footage, it basically allows you to snap 8M stills at 30fps. Or, shoot 11 fps in full 12.8M resolution using High speed burst shooting. Need to freeze action? Maximum shutter speed is 1/4,000 sec. (mechanical) and 1/16,000 sec. (electronic).

As expected from cameras these days, the LX100 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n) with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. Other practical functions include Focus Peaking, Level Gauge, White Balance bracket, highlight/shadow control, Creative Control (Filter) with adjustable aperture and shutter speed, Creative Panorama and Photo Style.

The LCD is 3.0-in. with 921k-dot resolution. It is not touch panel (hence no touch AF) and does not tilt.

The LX100 comes with a newly developed LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX 24-75mm (equivalent) 3.1x optical zoom lens with a fast F1.7-F2.8 maximum aperture. It features a 9-blade aperture diaphragm and, from images we have seen on many reviews, it produces beautiful and smooth bokeh. The lens features built-in optical image stabilization. The lens is not interchangeable.

The LX100 can develop RAW images into JPEG in-camera. A compact external flash is bundled.

Though the LX100 mainly targets the enthusiast crowd, those upgrading from a point-and-shoot will take comfort in the iA (Intelligent AUTO) button that allows the LX100 to take control of all the settings while you learn and grow in the craft. Of course, PASM modes are intuitive using the Shutter Speed dial and Aperture Ring.

If you are looking for a fixed-lens compact camera that gives great image quality as well as enjoyable operation with its dedicated manual control dials, check out the Panasonic LX100 with its impressive combination of a bright lens and a large high sensitivity sensor — and find out why reviewers are raving about it.

Nikon D750

Nikon D750

Nikon D750 with optional MB-D16 Multi Battery Power Pack

Category: Serious, Advanced

Type: Full-Frame DSLR


Full-frame HD-SLR for enthusiasts. The Nikon D750 puts a full-frame FX-format sensor in a relatively compact and lightweight HD-DSLR. It is Nikon’s smallest and lightest full-frame offering at an affordable price that enthusiast photographers will find very attractive. The Nikon D750 features 24.3MP, ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable from 50-51,200), 6.5fps continuous shooting, 51-point AF system, Full HD (1080p at 60/50/30/25/24p) video with stereo sound, a tiltable LCD and built-in Wi-Fi.

The D750 uses the same autofocus and metering technology as the D4S and the D810: Nikon’s powerful 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors and 3D Color Matrix Metering III with a 91,000-pixel RGB sensor. It’s fast and responsive, shooting 6.5 fps at full resolution. It shoots video with enhanced definition, smooth time-lapse sequences up to 9,999 shots in-camera. It now features a 3.2-inch 1,229k dot tilting Vari-angle LCD display, and built-in Wi-Fi allows the use of a compatible smartphone or tablet as a remote monitor for Live View shooting.

Inside is a newly designed 24.3MP FX-format CMOS image sensor, paired with EXPEED 4 image processing. The auto focus system features nine cross-type sensors for maximum accuracy, while seven AF points are fully functional when using compatible NIKKOR lenses and teleconverters with an aperture value up to f/8 for extreme telephoto applications. Autofocus performance is down to -3EV.

The D750 is well-suited for recording daily life and events as well as for filmmaking and videography. You can simultaneously record uncompressed and compressed Full HD 1080 footage at 60/50/30/25/24p. ISO, shutter speed and aperture can be manually changed while recording. A new Power Aperture control provides smooth iris transitions and Auto ISO provides smooth exposure transitions. Highlight Display with zebra stripes helps confirm exposure, Flat Picture Control allows for easier color grading in post processing.

You can wirelessly connect to the D750 with a compatible smartphone or tablet, browse the camera’s memory card, download your favorite shots and then email them, text them or upload them to your favorite social website. You can also use your smart device as a remote monitor and control for the D750: see what the camera sees and fire the shutter. For faster wireless transfers, transmit images over FTP using the WT-5A Wireless Transmitter + UT-1 Communication Unit. (Advanced shooters can use a web browser on a smartphone or tablet in HTTP mode to operate camera controls and begin Live View shooting.)

The Nikon D750 will appeal to enthusiasts who are thinking of upgrading to full-frame photography and pros who need a second full-frame body. They can now do so at an affordable price with a full-featured HD-DSLR.
