Touch screen technology has begun driving digital cameras too of late. In fact, the handling of the digital cameras has been made simpler and faster, and the touch interface has added to the convenience of the camera usage, especially for beginners.

In point and shoot cameras, a subject can be focused on and zoomed in with just a tap, the stored images can be browsed by flipping the images through the touch; and the control of the various settings is got by just tapping the menu icons provided on the LCD screen. Adding to this, a few manufactures allow the user to edit and modify a photo to save and share it. The usage of swivel touch screens makes it a lot easier to capture moments in some hard shooting conditions.

Touch controlled cameras however, are quite expensive when compared to the normal ones, and some of the touch interfaces could be slow and also drain your battery sooner. So the best touch screen cameras of 2016 give you the luxury of a good sensitive touch screen along with long battery life.

  • - HDMI output only functions when Wi-Fi/NFC is disabled.
    - Auto and Incandescent white balance settings too warm in tungsten lighting.
    - OVF coverage only 95%, with offset (this will likely change with sample variation).
    - Built-in flash can act as master to off-camera slave flash units.
    - Competitive though unexceptional burst speed for its class.
    - Excellent color and hue accuracy with manual white balance.
    - Very good high ISO performance for a 24-megapixel APS-C model.

    - But it’s the 760D’s low noise levels that impress most.
    - The new 24.2MP sensor in the 760D doesn’t just look good on paper; it also generates excellent image quality.
    - Its plastic body is tough and doesn't show any signs of flex, plus you get a generously-sized rubberised rear thumb grip.


  • This camera produces the same superb image quality as the 750D, but its better handling, helpful secondary LCD and electronic level makes it our choice of the two models. It's almost like a smaller, lighter 70D, with a better sensor.


  • The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a niche camera, with a full-frame image sensor and a dedicated 28mm lens. It's not for every photographer, but it's fantastic at what it does.


  • The Leica Q (Typ 116) is the best serious compact camera that Leica have ever released, offering fantastic image quality, great handling and build-quality, and a number of surprisingly innovative features which include very fast auto-focusing, although it's also the most expensive too.
    Offering a unique combination of a 35mm full-frame sensor and fixed 28mm lens, the Leica Q's natural rivals are the now ageing Sony RX1 and RX1R, but they don't offer such a wide or fast lens, a built-in viewfinder, or a touchscreen interface.


  • A superb full-frame compact camera for those who like traditional controls and modern features like an electronic viewfinder. The Q is capable of producing beautiful quality images.


  • 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.


  • 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. .


  • The new rangefinder-styled Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 compact system camera gets a lot of things absolutely right, offering intuitive handling, lots of customisation options, solid weather-proofed build quality, and an excellent OLED viewfinder and rear screen, but some of the headline-grabbing features don't live up their full potential, while both the camera and its price have become somewhat inflated.

    The Panasonic Lumix GX8 is a fantastic ILC, providing great image quality and performance. Offering 4K resolution video with full manual control allows the GX8 to be just as equipped for videographers, as it is for photographers.


  • - It’s a Micro Four Thirds camera that doesn't offer the small-size benefits that are often associated with this style of sensor.
    - AF performance is great too.
    - Image quality is great too.
    - The Panasonic Lumix GX8 produces the best RAW image quality we’ve seen from a Micro Four Thirds camera.
    - Burst performance is superb, and offers several options.
