Digital Cameras

Nikon 1 V3 interchangeable lens camera

Mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras from Nikon and Canon haven’t set the world on fire. Products from the likes of Olympus, Fujifilm, Sony, and Panasonic have all made the category a threat to traditional digital SLRs, the market in which Nikon and Canon are strongest, and now the two companies are playing catch-up. Can the Nikon 1 V3 claw back some ground?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 camera

Panasonic’s DMC-GH4 is a serious camera that’s designed for the most creative of minds. It’s a Micro Four Thirds-based, interchangeable lens camera that packs not only an excellent ability to capture stills, but also the ability to record ultra-high definition, 4K video. Basically, you can call it a photo/video hybrid.

Samsung NX Mini interchangeable lens camera

The temptation to make interchangeable lens cameras even smaller has been too strong for Samsung to resist, so here we have the NX Mini: it has the body of a compact camera, but it doesn’t have a fixed lens. It’s an idea that, if executed correctly, could potentially provide a wonderful user experience. But with the NX Mini, the rest of the camera appears to be an afterthought beyond ‘let’s make a slim and light camera that can take different lenses’.

Canon EOS 1200D

Canon's EOS 1200D camera is designed to get you started in the world of digital SLR photography, and is a sensible step up if you haven't used such a camera before and want to upgrade from a compact or phone device. It's one of the cheapest DSLR bodies you can get, and it can be bought for under $800 even if you go for the kit that has two lenses included.

Leica T camera

The Leica T is the type of camera that can make you feel underdressed. It will make you kick off your Air Max sneakers in favour of some fresh Julius Marlow boots. It will make you ditch polo shirts for tucked-in button-downs, and it will make you want to find a proper-fitting pair of pants. You'll feel like a million bucks when you hold this camera in your hands, but the downside is that you almost have to be made of that much in order to afford it.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III compact digital camera

At the heart of Sony's small Cyber-shot RX100 III is a 20-megapixel sensor that can capture images at a quality level that's usually reserved for bulky digital SLRs. That's the major distinction between this compact camera and competing models; it's designed for those of you who want a truly pocketable camera that can produce crisp results.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 digital camera with 4K video shooting

Panasonic is making sure that its new high-end cameras have the ability to capture ultra-high definition (or 4K) video. We first saw this with the Lumix DMC-GH4, and it now continues with the release of the more mainstream Lumix DMC-FZ1000. It makes sense since the company also has a foot in the big-screen TV market, and it’s a good way to enable people to get the absolute most out of those TVs at this infant stage of the 4K roll out.

Nikon Coolpix P340

The compact camera category isn’t as popular as it used to be since smartphones took off, but there is still a need for a proper camera if you want to do things such as play with a zoom lens and change the depth-of-field in your shots. Nikon’s Coolpix P340 is a small and light camera you can consider for such tasks, and it even has a few dials on it so that you can tune in to the exposure manually.

Sony a5000 interchangeable lens camera

Sony's a5000 is one of the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens cameras that you will find, and these are its big drawcards. Its body is not bigger than a typical mid-to-high-end compact camera, yet it contains a lens mount that can accept different types of focal lengths depending on your needs.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
