The entry-level DSLR market has slowed in terms of product releases in recent years. Indeed it's taken three years for Canon to out the 1200D - that's Rebel T5 for our American friends - and while we don't mind waiting for the right kit to come along we do question whether the market has changed unrecognisably in that period of time.
The update to 2011's 1100D, the EOS 1200D is all about hitting an accessible price point. A lot of its features mirror that of its pricier, more feature-laden peers from the EOS range but wrapped in a more budget, plastic finish.

Olympus has announced its latest Tough camera, the TG-5. Following the family of Tough cameras before it, the new Olympus model is everything you expect it to be. There are chunky lines, exposed bolt heads, locks on all the flaps and so on.
Such are the hallmarks of a tough cameras, looking to offering something in the compact camera space that you can't do with your waterproof smartphone. Those mini computers have cannibalised the compact camera market, doing away with the need to carry another thing in your pocket.
The result is a camera that will withstand the sor..
Nikon Corporation this week is pleased to announce the release of the D7500 Nikon DX-format digital SLR camera.
The D7500 is equipped with the same high-performance EXPEED 5 image-processing engine and Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor as Nikon's flagship DX-format digital SLR camera, the D500, achieving superior image quality with very little noise throughout the broad ISO 100 to 51200 range of standard sensitivities. The D7500 offers a number of improvements over its predecessor, the D7200. A 180K-pixel RGB sensor, which increases the accuracy of automatically controlled functions such as AF, A..
Canon announced two new DSLRs for enthusiast and entry-level photographers this morning: the EOS 77D and EOS Rebel T7i cameras. The Canon EOS 77D slots just below the 80D and just above the Rebel T6s in the company’s DSLR lineup. The Canon Rebel T7i, on the other hand, is the direct successor to the T6i, the company’s entry-level DSLR.
Shutterbug had some hands-on time with the two new Canon DSLRs ahead of this morning’s launch and have included those images in this story. While the design of the two cameras is slightly different and the 77D is aimed ..
Though it was announced late last month, the new 24-megapixel Pentax KP DSLR made its official debut at the WPPI show in Las Vegas this week and we put our grubby little paws all over this compact yet rugged APS-C sensor-based DSLR. What impressed us most was that despite the camera’s slim build – it weighs only 1.4 pounds and is small enough to fit into a laptop bag – the Pentax KP looks and feels like a serious pro-level DSLR.
It’s also weather resistant and while we haven’t had a chance to seriously test the new Pentax KP out yet,&n..

Another new year, another new round of juicy camera conjecture. Here’s your officially unofficial 2017 camera rumor roundup!
Expectations are high for camera releases in 2017. Just like in years past, we’ve rounded up the latest camera rumorsthat have appeared online. While a lot of last year’s camera rumors came to fruition, it seems a few might have been a bit too optimistic. So, keep in mind, there are no guarantees here — only hopes and dreams. Here are the best rumors for cameras we may see released in 2017.
Sony has announced the a6500, the successor to the well-received Alpha a6300 mirrorless camera.
In similar vein as the compact RX100 V also announced on Thursday, the a6500 builds on the success rather than offering too great an overhaul.
The 24.2-megapixel APS-C EXMOR CMOS sensor remains the same. However, it now has the world’s fastest AF lock at 0.05 seconds.
It also has 425 phase detection AF points, 'densely positioned over nearly the entire image area', which Sony claims is the world’s highest for an interchangeable lens camera.

Leica is going back to the future (again) with its newest digital rangefinder, the full frame, 24-megapixel M10. With this new model, which is the follow-up to the Leica M (Typ 240), Leica has trimmed the size of the M10, making it 4mm (1/8-inch) thinner than its predecessor. Part of that size reduction is due to the fact that Leica has gotten rid of the 1080p HD movie capture mode that was available on the previous model.
In a meeting Shutterbug had with Leica executives last week at which we were loaned a production version of the M10 to test out ahead of today’s launch, we were..

Olympus has introduced Pen-F, the same camera for the 8th consecutive time, hoping that consumer are too wrapped up in the Super Bowl or the duct tape challenge to notice. The “new” Pen-F has the same number of megapickles as the last 8 cameras, fits in the same camera bags as before, and uses the same lenses. There is literally no chance that a person replacing one of the previous 8 cameras with this new camera will in any way, shape, or form become a better photographer.
In an effort to be a retro green corporation, Olympus is even recycling the name. You may now resume your meaningless l..

Yes, it's true. The new Pentax K-1 is the first time Pentax has ever made a 35mm full-frame digital camera. That's amazing considering Canon and Nikon have been at it for years, but also explains why Pentax has lagged behind for so long. Where did loyal Pentax fans go when upgrading to full-frame... not Pentax. Enter the K-1.
5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PENTAX K-1

The Nikon D500 DSLR has won Camera of the Year at the TrustedReviews Awards 2016.
Nikon’s professional-grade DSLR is an impressive bit of kit, wooing cash-flush photographers when it launched back in January this year. With a 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor, support for 4K video capture at 30 frames per second, and Nikon’s EXPEED5 image processor on board, it’s easy to see why we’re so impressed with the Nikon D500.
