Fuji X-A2

An express review of the Fuji X-A2 was just published at Neocamera. This is the most entry-level Fuji mirrorless yet it features dual control-dials and a fast EXR II processor. Looking almost identical to the entry-level X-M1 already reviewed, the X-A2 lowers costs by using a conventional 16 megapixels APS-C sensor.

Fuji took the mirrorless market by storm with its high-end X-Pro1 and has been simplifying its offerings to capture lower price categories. The X-E series uses a high-resolution EVF instead of a hybrid viewfinder; the X-M series omits a viewfinder entirely and the X-A2 finds itself without the unique X-Trans sensor which originally defined the X-family. Read the review here to see what difference that makes.

An express review of the Canon Powershot SX610 HS, one of the latest ultra-compacts to hit the market, was just published at Neocamera. This digital camera packs an 18X optical zoom lens for the most reach of any ultra-compact, equivalent to a 25-450mm lens.

This pocket-size ultra-zoom is designed to take on the most serious threat to ultra-compacts which are actually cellular phones. Those have been eating away sales of ultra-compacts for the last few years by offering convenience and similar image-quality but with little to no optical zoom. By incorporating a stabilized wide-angle 18X optical zoom lens, the Canon Powershot SX160 HS exceeds the reach and versatility of any cellphone.

This model aims to match the simplicity and convenience of phones by offering completely automatic operation plus wireless connectivity via WiFi and NFC. Read the Canon Powershot SX610 HS review to find out how this pocket-camera performs.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a unique ultra-zoom which offers a large 1″ CMOS sensor with 20 megapixels. The lens has a stabilized 16X optical-zoom range, equivalent to 25-400mm with a moderately bright F/2.8-4 maximum aperture. Using a high-speed processor, the FZ1000 can record 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS and shoot continuously at 12 FPS.

Neocamera just published a review covering all the major features of the FZ1000, analyzing it usability, image quality and performance. Read the review to learn about the FZ1000.

The Nikon 1 J5 is the latest mirrorless from Nikon. This small compact digital camera features a 20 megapixels CMOS sensor with high-speed read-out which allows 60 FPS continuous drive at full-resolution and 4K Ultra-HD capture at 15 FPS. It is complemented by an electronic shutter with top-speed of 1/16000s and a built-in hybrid autofocus system wit 105 Phase-Detect points and 171 Contrast-Detect areas.

As the sensor is 1″-type and has a 2.7X crop-factor, relative to full-frame, the Nikon 1 system makes it possible to make smaller cameras and lenses than almost all mirrorless system while also exceeding the image-quality of similarly-sized fixed-lens cameras. Above one can see the 1 J5 with a 6.7-13mm and a 10-100mm lens. This combination is equivalent to an 18-270mm range on a full-frame camera (or 12-180mm on APS-C), yet it is much more compact.

The new J5 is completely revised from previous Nikon 1 cameras. It offers a new sensor and ergonomics with a more traditional interface. Still, among entry-level mirrorless, it is one of the few now to offer dual control-dials and a mode-dial. A detailed review of the Nikon 1 J5 is available at Neocamera. Read on to see how the 1 J5 performs and compares to its predecessors.
