Canon EOS 5DS Body Digital CameraFrom $5767

Marking a new standard in high-resolution digital SLR photography, the Canon EOS 5DS camera shatters the status quo with a new 50.6 Megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor. Perfect for commercial and fine art photography, or any other application that calls for extremely high-resolution, the EOS 5DS is the ultimate combination of EOS performance and ultra-high megapixel capture. It features an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system that includes 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for precise AF in numerous situations. An anti-flicker function helps provide consistent exposure and color during continuous shooting under certain lighting conditions, while a built-in bulb timer and intervalometer expands creative opportunities without the need for an additional remote control. A refined mirror control mechanism reduces vibration and a Time Release Lag setting minimizes camera shake for sharp image capture when using mirror lock-up. New features like a crop function of 1.3x and 1.6x and a Custom Quick Control screen are complemented by advanced, multi-featured Full HD Movie capture, with Time Lapse Movie, and much more. With EOS performance and 50.6 Megapixel Capture, the EOS 5DS revolutionizes high-resolution photography!

Canon EOS 5DS R Body Digital CameraFrom $6882

The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera with a 50.6 megapixel sensor, the highest number of megapixels ever seen in a full frame sensor, and and a low-pass cancellation filter that maximises the sharpness of the camera’s sensor (the only difference between the 5DS R and the slightly cheaper 5DS model). Key features include a 61-point auto focus system with 41 cross-type points, 150k pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with innovative flicker detection mode, dual DIGIC 6 processors, weather sealing, an expanded ISO range of 50-12,800, 100% viewfinder with electronic overlay, 3.2 inch Clear View II LCD screen, customizable Quick Control screen, three in-camera crop shooting modes (1.3x, 1.6x and 1:1), dual CF and SD memory card slots, Mirror Vibration Control System, built-in intervalometer and bulb timer, new Fine Detail picture style, Full HD 1080p video recording at 30fps, and continuous shooting at 5 frames per second. 

Fujifilm X-T10 Digital CameraFrom $900

Creativity. Everyday.
Small, simple to use and offering exceptional image quality. The FUJIFILM X-T10 turns any trip, whether in everyday life or to the other side of the world, into the ultimate photo opportunity.

Shooting Style
The design of the compact and lightweight body bears all the hallmarks of an X Series camera. Both top and base plates are made of a lightweight, but highly rigid, die-cast magnesium. The top plate features three precision-milled aluminum dials which give the FUJIFILM X-T10 a premium feel and allow users to intuitively adjust the combination of aperture, shutter speed and shooting functions while concentrating on picture taking.

New AF system captures the subject perfectly
The FUJIFILM X-T10 uses the new AF system. It offers the conventional 49-point Single Point mode for high speed and precision, as well as new Zone and Wide/Tracking modes that track subject movement across a larger 77-point area, substantially improving the camera's ability to capture moving subjects.

Film Simulation
With 80 years of expertise in film development, Fujifilm is passionate about color, and the result can be clearly seen in the FUJIFILM X-T10's evolved Film Simulation settings. Allowing you to create brilliant images without the need for lengthy post-production, users can switch between beautiful styles just as easily as choosing a roll of film. The expanded range of modes now includes CLASSIC CHROME, which was developed to meet the demands of Fujifilm X-Photographers worldwide.

Real-Time Viewfinder
With a magnification of 0.62x** and a display lag time of just 0.005sec***, the FUJIFILM X-T10 has the large and fast viewfinder. It offers a clear, high-definition live view thanks to the new 2.36M-dot organic EL electronic viewfinder, plus visibility has been improved by automatically controlling finder brightness according to the ambient light levels.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G7 Digital CameraFrom $698

The LUMIX DMC-GX7 combines the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine to achieve a new level of clear, smooth image quality. Featuring a stylish, high-class body with metallic appeal, the DMC-GX7 expands the joy of photography with a tiltable LVF, image stabilizer and Wi-Fi function.

Canon PowerShot G3 X Digital CameraFrom $1149

The PowerShot G3 X camera's 1.0-inch sensor achieves a beautiful balance between high sensitivity and high image quality. The sensor is able to collect more light in a shorter time period without the overflow that causes blown-out highlights. This means better detail and sophisticated tonal quality, with rich gradations even at high ISO speeds all the way to 12800. A high signal-to-noise ratio delivers minimal noise and distortion with breathtaking dynamic range, particularly notable in bright areas. And photography enthusiasts will appreciate the changes in image processing for the PowerShot G3 X, which include target exposure value and contrast characteristics of highlights. Thanks to this change, dynamic range in bright areas is expanded with gradation attributes that are similar to EOS. Also, by changing the exposure index standard, it is possible to shoot at almost the same brightness with the same aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings as EOS. The PowerShot G3 X natively captures images in the 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the same as Canon EOS SLR cameras. The camera's image creation technology was designed with post processing in mind, and features an Aspect Ratio function, enabling RAW image capture in 16:9, 3:2, 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios while maintaining the same angle of view.

Sony A7R Mark II Digital CameraFrom $3775

Introducing the new Sony A7R II, containing the world’s first back-illuminated 35mm full-frame image sensor delivery 42.4MP resolution. Combining a Fast Hybrid AF system, 5-axis image stabilisation and 4K movie recording with full pixel read out, it delivers unparalleled quality and control. Your shots of action can look clearer than ever, thanks to our new full-frame image sensor that assures wide-area coverage with 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points.

The 5-axis image stabilisation system has been fine tuned for the A7RII’s high resolution image sensor. It accurately compensates for five types of camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting. The grip has been refined in the A7R II in shape and height to support a more secure grasp of the camera even when a large lens is mounted. The shutter button has been reshaped and shifted forward to enable more natural shooting with less camera shake.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II Digital CameraFrom $1698

Sony's acclaimed high-zooming RX10 II camera contains a remarkable advance in photo and movie possibilities — the world's first memory-attached 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor. Use it to create stunning 4K movies, up to 40x super slow motion, spectacular still images, and more. A new world of super-real photography emerges. Zoom in.

Fujifilm X30 Digital CameraFrom $0
Like the Fujifilm X10 and X20, the X30 switches on and off with the manual zoom control and the camera now features a new command dial that surrounds the lens. Technology implemented in the X30 and X20 is designed to reduce the effects of diffraction and aberration when using smaller apertures, which should result in sharper pictures.
Canon Powershot SX610 HS Digital CameraFrom $299

Along with its impressively slim profile and stylish new design, the PowerShot SX610 HS camera boasts a powerful array of advanced capabilities. The 18x Optical Zoom gives you excellent versatility, while Intelligent IS helps ensure virtually shake-free images at any zoom length, and Auto Zoom helps you frame your subject and keep it in focus. Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC make this a great camera to have with you all day long: send images and video to compatible mobile devices and your computer, share directly with select social networking sites, shoot remotely with your smartphone or tablet and more. Image quality is beautifully sharp and resonant, even when you're shooting in low light, thanks to the 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ Image Processor, which together create the Canon HS SYSTEM. And just press the dedicated movie button to capture vividly lifelike 1080p Full HD video. For documenting and sharing your life, the PowerShot SX610 HS camera is the perfect partner. 
 

Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 Digital CameraFrom $449

The Tough TG-4 is rugged enough to go anywhere, but its powerful imaging technology makes this camera the most versatile yet. Sophisticated features like RAW capture, nighttime Live Composite, and the super-bright F2.0 wide-angle zoom lens create amazing images no matter how challenging the environment, while built-in Wi-Fi, fast GPS, and the multifunction e.Compass help you to find, shoot, and share your adventures like never before.
