- TrustedReviews recommends the Pentax K-30 [QuickPrice Check] as “a richly featured mid-range DSLR that […] offers enough to stand out from its peers, with the overall build quality and weather sealing a notable highlight. Image quality impresses too, as does the 6fps top burst speed.“
- DigitalCameraReview recommends the Nikon D3200 [QuickPrice Check] for your first DSLR and finds that “it’s clear that Nikon chose to go for high resolution versus high ISO performance.“
- DPReview awards Silver to the Samsung NX210 [QuickPrice Check] finding that it “is a fine camera that offers the same image quality as the NX200 and, with its panorama and magic modes and Wi-Fi connectivity, offers one of the more innovative feature sets in its class.“
- SansMirror reviews the Samsung NX1000 [QuickPrice Check] and finds it “a well designed compact camera, but with a hot rod large sensor inside to produce superb images and an interchangeable lens option up front.“
- PhotographyBLOG recommends the Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS [QuickPrice Check] concluding that “we’re pleased with the Canon IXUS 510 HS’ image quality and focusing. […] We love the feel of the Canon IXUS 510 HS which is down to the superior build quality.“
- DigitalCameraInfo highly recommends the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS [QuickPrice Check] as “the best travel zoom of the year. Canon’s SX260 HS […] is quick, compact, comfortable, and produces above-average photos in many different situations. This is an ideal travel companion.“
- DCRP (dcresource) highly recommends the Panasonic LX7 [QuickFact Sheet] as “an excellent premium compact camera. Its fast lens, performance, and manual controls will make enthusiasts drool, while those just starting out can get great results using Panasonic’s Intelligent Auto mode. […] The LX7 is a first-rate camera that I can highly recommend.“
- PhotographyBLOG recommends the Samsung WB850F [QuickPrice Check] concluding that “the 16 megapixel, 21x optical zoom Samsung WB850F is a feature packed metal build pocket camera that offers just about all the must-have features one would want from a travel zoom compact.“
- Steve’s Digicams reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S9300 [QuickPrice Check] and finds that “The Coolpix S9300 offers a lot of features for the money. […] Image quality could be improved – but it’s unlikely you’ll notice the shortcoming if you don’t view the images at large sizes.“
- TechRadar reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S9300 [QuickPrice Check] and finds that it is a “great 16MP travel zoom features but several flaws. Score: 2.5/5“
