Most high end compact cameras come with at least 10 MP resolution. With resolution of 10 Megapixel, you can get pretty excellent quality prints up to 19x12 inches. Otherwise, unless you are planning to blow up your prints to poster size, the megapixel count does not per se affect the image quality. The best digital cameras with resolution of 10 MP are generally the premium compact cameras and the entry level DSLR's.

Apart from the resolution, also check other factors such as sensor size, lens quality etc before buying. Having a very high resolution with a cheaper sensor means more number of pixels packed together which could increase the noise. This noise is more significant at higher ISO's while shooting in low light. Therefore also weigh in factors such as ISO performance. The best 10 MP resolution digital cameras have a decent performance at higher ISO's and use bigger sensors, and the dSLR's definitely have an edge where these two factors are concerned.

  • The OM-D E-M10 II embodies what the Olympus OM-D series is all about; it's a high quality camera that feels great, offers an extensive feature set with bags of control and produces superb quality images yet doesn't take up much space in your bag.


  • The OM-D E-M10 Mark II is a great camera that's packed with the very best Olympus design and technology. Like its stablemates, it has a sleek retro look, a 16-Megapixel CMOS sensor and a speedy autofocus, but new technology like Focus Bracketing and five-axis stabilisation take it even further. It's straight-forward, effective and attractive. We just wish Olympus would update its over-complex menus!.


  • The Olympus OM-D E-M10 II is an evolutionary upgrade of 2014's E-M10 camera, principally adding an even better electronic viewfinder, 5-axis image stabilisation system, very useful fully electronic shutter, and AF targeting pad and focus stacking features, along with a better control layout.


  • - While the FujiFilm X-T10 is among the best CSCs at the price for image quality, it’s not quite as competitive on video quality.
    - The FujiFilm X-T10 is not weather-proofed, meaning it’s not designed to shoot in torrential downpours without risk of some moisture getting into the insides.
    - Plenty of manual controls.
    - You get full DSLR-style control with the FujiFilm X-T10.

    The Fujifilm X-T10 is a fantastic enthusiast level ILC. Sporting the 16-Megapixel X-Trans imaging sensor, EXR Processor II, Full 1080p HD video and total shooting control on the camera make it lots of fun to use. Performance and image quality will not let you down either.


  • The mirrorless X-T10 is the best camera Fujifilm offers at a sub-$1,000 price point, but its burst shooting duration is disappointing.


  • The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II has a unique high-resolution capture mode, but it's not the best camera for shooting fast-moving subjects.


  • It may look similar to the 3-year-old EM-5, but with a plethora of "under-the-hood" improvements, the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II far surpasses that camera, and in some ways the flagship OM-D E-M1 too.
    Although not quite as easy to use as the slightly larger Olympus OM-D E-M1, the E-M5 Mark II's revised control layout is well thought-out and the level of customisability is extremely high. The camera is robust – more so than the E-M5 –, and highly responsive. The EVF is among the best we have ever used, with great resolution, good colour rendition, fast refresh rates, a large apparent size and adaptive brightness control.

    The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II is a high-quality, compact ILC made to be easy enough for anyone to use. High-quality still images combined with the easy-to-use video features mean this is the only camera you will need. .


  • It's hard to get excited about a new camera that principally only adds wi-fi and NFC connectivity to its predecessor. The new Ricoh GR II certainly takes the title of "Smallest Upgrade Ever", with just a handful of other minor new features to justify the full RRP of £599.99 / $799.


  • The Ricoh GR Digital II is a specialised tool for use alongside your other camera(s). It doesn’t do much, but what it does, it does exceptionally well – architectural interiors and exteriors, landscapes and ‘street’ photography are where this camera shines


  • - The menu also offers a wide range of control over picture style and quality.
    - Perhaps more important than anything else though is the sheer pleasure of using the GR Digital II.
    - More importantly it is a genuine pleasure to use and encourages creative photography.
    - Shooting at 80 ISO with noise reduction turned on there is absolutely no trace of image noise and the resulting pictures are among the best I've ever seen from a compact camera.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is the fifth Panasonic stills camera to offer 4K video and photo shooting, following in the footsteps of the GH4, LX100, FZ1000 and CM1 models. "Introducing 4k to everyone" is the marketing angle that Panasonic are taking with the G7, and we'd agree that this DSLR-like, mid-range compact system camera is the best suited of all those products to expand the appeal of 4K to a wider audience, especially as it now offers additional 4K photo modes.


  • While the G7's design and build may lack the excitement of cameras like the Fuji X-T10, it has a very well-rounded feature set, with a high-quality OLED viewfinder, a vari-angle touchscreen and Wi-Fi connectivity. Image quality is also high.


  • Let's not beat about the bush; Panasonic's Lumix G7 is nearly the perfect interchangeable-lens camera for the majority of users. It's well-built, fairly compact and light, very fast, takes beautiful photos, is gifted in video (4K/UHD!), offers great customizability... It's hard to think of any flaws! All we'd say is that, because Panasonic was so keen that its G7 should do everything well, it perhaps offers a few too many options... Not much of a criticism, really!.
