Canon EOS Rebel T3i (with 18-55mm IS II Lens) Reviewed on March 22, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Canon EOS Rebel T3i (with 18-55mm IS II Lens)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 16 reviews

The Bottom Line: For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up. Read review

Specs: Compact, 18 megapixels, 3 x, 29 - 88mm F/3.5, 14.9 x 22.3mm, CMOS, Optical

Nikon Coolpix P600 (Black) Reviewed on February 7, 2014 Check prices
Product overview
Nikon Coolpix P600 (Black)

The Bottom Line: Starting at 24mm and zooming in to 1,440mm, the new P600 has one of the longest lenses on a compact camera. It joins other upcoming Coolpix models, the P530, S9700, and enthusiast-focused P340. Read review

Product overview
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V

The Bottom Line: Its lens, sensor, and LCD remain unchanged from its predecessor, but a new processor, Wi-Fi, and GPS keep the flagship megazoom from getting stale. Read review

    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though it doesn't rank first based on any individual aspect of the camera, the Nikon D5100 delivers a solid combination of image quality, performance, features, and design that puts it out in front if you're looking for a well-rounded option under $1,000. Read review

Canon PowerShot G16 Reviewed on September 17, 2013 Check prices
Product overview
Canon PowerShot G16

The Bottom Line: While the Canon PowerShot G16 is better than the G15 and remains a nice enthusiast compact, its low-light photo quality disappoints for the money. Read review

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Nikon 1 J1 is a fine camera, but there's nothing here that screams out "buy it" over similar competitors. It's also on the expensive side for a point-and-shoot upgrader, but has drawbacks for the more advanced user. Read review

Specs: 10.1 megapixels, 3 x, 27 - 81mm F/3.5, 13.2 x 8.8mm, High Speed AF CMOS

Product overview
Samsung Galaxy Camera Verizon 4G LTE Connected (White)

The Bottom Line: Outside of its relatively high cost of ownership and average point-and-shoot picture quality, the Samsung Galaxy Camera definitely delivers the shoot-and-share experience of a smartphone with the features of a compact camera. Read review

    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 34 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though we'd like it to perform better, dSLR shooters looking for a sidekick camera will find the Canon PowerShot S95's top-flight photos and a full manual feature set worth the tradeoff of its compact size. Read review

Specs: Ultracompact, 10 megapixels, 3.8 x, 1/1.7", CCD, Optical

Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS Reviewed on June 15, 2012 Check prices

Sony Alpha NEX-5R (Body Only, Black) Reviewed on December 10, 2012 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Alpha NEX-5R (Body Only, Black)

The Bottom Line: It's a great camera choice for high-quality stills and a streamlined shooting design under $800, but the Sony Alpha NEX-5R falls short when it comes to sharing your shots online. Read review

Specs: 16.1 megapixels, 15.6 x 23.5mm, Exmor APS HD CMOS

Pentax K-500 (with 18-55mm DAL Lens, Black) Reviewed on July 18, 2013 Check prices
Product overview
Pentax K-500 (with 18-55mm DAL Lens, Black)

The Bottom Line: A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance. Read review

Specs: Digital SLR Camera, CMOS, Optical

  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 115 reviews

Product overview
Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (Body Only)

The Bottom Line: While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model. Read review

Specs: Digital SLR Camera, 18 megapixels, 14.9 x 22.3mm, CMOS

Product overview
Fujifilm X20 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: The Fujifiilm X20 is a great choice for people looking for a well-designed photographer's camera, but the basic feature set and disappointing video might not be for everyone. Read review
