  • Canon's EOS 5DS D-SLR has a high-resolution sensor that filters out color moiré, but it sacrifices a little detail in the process.


  • The Canon EOS 5Ds combines the proven design of the popular 5D Mark III with jaw-dropping image quality from the new 50.6 megapixel sensor. Slow continuous shooting speeds and a limited ISO range by modern standards means that the 5Ds certainly isn't suited to every photographic situation, with the venerable 5D Mark III and the EOS 7D Mk II being better all-rounders, while the huge file sizes and sheer level of detail demand that you use the best post-processing setup and the latest "L-series" lenses to do justice to the camera.

    The Canon EOS 5Ds is a professional dSLR providing and amazing 50.6-Megapixels of resolution, great performance from the dual DIGIC 6 processors and Full 1080p HD video for those looking for more than just still images. .


  • The new Canon PowerShot G3 X is a solid super-zoom camera for enthusiast photographers, offering a wealth of options for shooting both stills and video, excellent image quality, speedy auto-focusing, intuitive and configurable handling, and solid construction. Unfortunately, it's rather ham-strung by the strange omission of a built-in viewfinder - trying to hold the Canon PowerShot G3 X at arm's length whilst using the full extent of the 25x zoom lens results in too many misses due to camerashake.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The Canon PowerShot G3 X certainly has some of the same drawbacks that you find with other fixed lens, large zoom cameras, but its extremely good image quality more than makes up for those issues. Add in a tiltable, high-resolution, touch screen LCD, a 25x optical zoom lens, a good mix of manual control and auto shooting modes, and great battery life, and the G3 X is a really good camera.


  • The G3 X delivers SLR-like zoom capabilities in a compact package thanks to its excellent lens and image stabilisation, only falling down when faced with fast-moving subjects. It's not a beautiful camera, but it's well built and easy to handle.


  • The Canon EOS 7D Mark II shoots at 10fps, offers pro-level video recording, and is built like a tank. It's our Editors' Choice for high-end APS-C D-SLRs.


  • The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is an excellent DSLR camera, with its APS-C sensor, cutting-edge auto-focusing system, fantastic viewfinder and outright speed making it a great fit for sports and wildlife photographers, especially as it doesn't cost the earth.
    Featuring a near-identical control layout to the 5D Mark III, the EOS 7D Mark II makes the perfect partner to the 5D for the keen Canon shooter looking for an all-round kit.


  • Canon's best APS-C format SLR to date, the 7D Mark II has a new sensor and processing engine along with advanced metering and AF systems, giving it bags of appeal to the enthusiast wedded to the idea of an SLR rather than a compact system camera.


  • The Canon EOS 5DS R offers the most resolution you'll find in a full-frame SLR, but its high ISO capabilities are limited.


  • The Canon EOS 5DS R delivers slightly more resolution and sharpness than the regular 5DS model at a very slight increase in the risk of producing unwanted moire effects. In reality these effects actually proved difficult to create on purpose out in the field, and as they can be largely removed during post-processing, the extra detail and sharpness delivered by the EOS 5DS R is worth both the risk and the slight extra financial cost.


  • The Canon PowerShot D30 can go deep underwater, but feels pretty dated in terms of image quality and performance.


  • Canon have really pushed the boundaries on their tough cameras by increasing the integrity of the chassis. While the 2m drop is already matched in many tough cameras – and even bettered – the PowerShot D30 is unsurpassed in the depth that you can swim without an extra casing to protect the camera. It's certainly an easy camera to use as well, aside from the sneakier sub-menus that aren't immediately noticeable.


  • The D30 excels underwater and its new external design makes it one of the most ergonomic tough cameras on the market. However, the D30's direct rivals can go deeper. Image quality isn't bad compared to rival cameras, but a tendency to underexpose can make shots look initially uninspiring.
