  • The new Canon EOS M3 is a much more serious compact system camera than the original EOS M that we reviewed back in 2012. It offers a raft of improvements clearly aimed at making it more enthusiast-friendly, along with a big reduction in the launch price. Still, there are some rather big flies in the ointment which mean that the EOS M3 lags behind the mirrorless competition, most notably the lack of a built-in viewfinder and the continued lack of native EF-M lenses.


  • While the M3 is very capable, the 18-55mm kit limits detail resolution significantly and the autofocus system has a habit of focusing on the background rather than the subject.


  • - Handgrip is shallow.
    - Dials hard to move.
    - Useful live view and great screen.
    - You can take complete control of the exposure and with confidence capture what you are seeing on the screen.
    - Many elements come together to make for an enjoyable overall user experience.
    - For the most part, the control layout is good, though.


  • The Lomography Lomo'Instant is a fun instant camera with a wide-angle lens and support for multiple exposures.


  • If you’re a fan of analogue photography, in particular the Lomo brand, you should be fairly pleased with this camera.
    The Lomo Instant is a lot of fun, but on the flip side it’s quite an expensive purchase for something so frivolous. It’s reasonably easy to get the hang of using the camera, but experimentation is definitely required, at least at first.


  • Nobody is buying a camera like this because they want super sharp shots every time. Rather, it's designed as a bit of fun – and in good light you can get some nice results.


  • The Canon PowerShot Elph 160 is one of the least expensive compact cameras you can buy, but you're better off spending just a little bit more on a point-and-shoot.


  • Budget compact cameras rarely set the world alight with exceptional performance or innovative features, but the IXUS 160 is even more lacklustre than the norm. Aside from including a respectable amount of manual shooting options and a few nifty features, it’s an unremarkable camera.
    Image quality is average at best, with reasonable performance in good light, but disappointing indoor and low light results.

    The Canon ELPH 160 is an ultra-compact, affordable digicam. A 20-Megapixel imaging sensor and lack of OIS leave the camera capturing noisy images all the time. A perfect example of "you get what you pay for".


  • The Nikon Coolpix S3700 is a capable camera that performs well in most situations. Well exposed, vibrant images impress right from the off, and noise levels are fairly low up to ISO800. Vibration Reduction is an essential feature when shooting indoors or in low light, so it’s great the S3700 includes it.
    Still welcome, but arguably less important, is the in-built Wi-Fi. This works well, especially if you have an NFC-equipped smart device, and makes image sharing a breeze.


  • The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 is a good all round compact camera, which is ideal if you’re the type of person who likes to go on adventure holidays - or, alternatively if you’re just looking for something which will be able to withstand average family life.
    Although picture quality may not be quite as high as some cameras without such rugged credentials, for a holiday or family camera, it’s still pretty good and you should be pleased with what it can produce.

    The FinePix XP80 from Fujifilm is a nice point-n-shoot camera that will work well for the beginning photographer seeking waterproof capabilities in a simplistic model. This camera's images are surprisingly sharp for such a basic camera with a small image sensor. Another pleasing surprise is that the XP80 has very little shutter lag when the lighting conditions are good. However, color representation and exposure are a little off with the XP80.


  • The Fujfilm XP80 offers affordable durability in a compact package.
    ISO 6400 (reduced file size). The Fujifilm XP80 is excellent for shooting right in the middle of the action. The 10 fps burst speed is among the best for the category. The video capabilities and wide range of mounting options makes it a good choice for mounting on a bike, surfboard, or whatever else you can imagine. It's not a good option for shooting indoors, however.
