With the support of inbuilt WiFi to a digital camera, it is more than just a camera and less of a smart phone. It should be noted here that the media quality which these cameras offer is far better than that of a smartphone. These WiFi cameras use 802.11b and 802.11g wireless computer networking technology to update the camera's software or upload your photos to web (including cloud backup in newer models) or to transfer them to a computer. This feature makes sharing, downloading and printing photos easy, thereby eliminating the usage of cables and card readers. The best wifi cameras of 2016 might use the latest version - 802.11n - which is the fastest WiFi protocol in use today.

While some of the cameras need Wifi to control them remotely, using the display of your mobile device as a viewfinder, some other cameras use Wifi to tag the location of the photos using the smartphone's GPS receiver.

Currently, this Wifi feature is considered just as an add-on option, so there's a probability of not getting a desirable camera model with a Wifi option. In that case, Eye-Fi wireless SD cards will be of help, which work just like regular SD memory cards for storage and have a built-in Wi-Fi radio for wireless data transfer.

  • - 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.


  • 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.


  • - This camera is still pretty rugged, though, and will be able to handle some abuse.
    - Resolution is 1,040k-dot, offering good sharpness.
    - The viewfinder is good, but not class-leading.
    - Canon’s implementation of wireless tech is great too.


  • 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.


  • - Shooting with this camera is simply a joy.
    - The Leica Q (Typ 116)’s screen is less remarkable.
    - You’ll get virtually noise-free images up to ISO 800, and impressive results up to around ISO 6400.
    - In addition, the lens is optically stabilised, making high-quality handheld twilight shots a possibility too.
    - With a 3.68m-dot resolution, it’s the sharpest EVF we’ve seen so far.


  • Leica took its time, but Leica delivered. The Q (Typ 116) hits hard, hits accurate and hits fast, all with bravado. It excels at all things (except video) and will be an excellent sidekick to any photojournalist or street photographer looking for efficiency, portability and light intake. In other words: go for it! It ain't cheap (£2,900/$4,250), but the value for money is spot-on.


  • 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.

  • Rating Unavailable

    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.


  • - Macro performance not quite as good as some competitors.
    - Battery life not as good as predecessor (but still fair for its size).
    - Slightly below average saturation levels and hue accuracy.
    - Still can't capture RAW files and JPEGs at the "Extra Fine" highest quality setting.
    - Default Wi-Fi camera app lacks robust functionality; need to install additional (free) app.


  • - Great stills, outstanding video, and loads of features make this an amazing compact cam.
    - The screen is rated 1,228K dots and is very sharp.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV offers serious video improvements over the RX100 III, but it is very expensive for a compact camera.
