Nikon D7100 (body only)

£817.45 (was £1099.99)
Amazon UK

The Nikon D7100 is the successor to
the highly acclaimed D7000 that was released at the tail end of 2010. The newer
model sees a number of upgrades, not least with an all-new 24.1MP APS-C CMOS
sensor and Nikon’s speedy EXPEED 3 image processor – the same that’s used in
Nikon’s pro-spec D4 full-frame DSLR. Other highlights of the D7100 include a
51-point AF system that includes 14 cross-type sensors, 1080p Full HD video
recording at 30fps and an extensive array of customisation features. All in
all, the D7100 is a fantastic camera for the enthusiast photographer and great
value at this price.

Sony HX50

£249.00 (was £349.00)
WEX Photographic

Released this summer, the
HX50 is a 30x travel zoom that comes equipped with a 20.4MP Exmor R CMOS
sensor. The 30x zoom offers the 35mm focal range equivalent of 24-720mm, which
provides considerably more telephoto reach than the mass of 20x travel zooms
currently on the market. While normally you’d expect to pay an extra £100 to
get this extra telephoto reach, WEX Photographic’s discounted price means you can
enjoy it for much the same price as its 20x competitors.

Sony Alpha A58 & 18-55mm lens

£339.00 (was £500.00)

Amazon UK

The Sony A58 is the
entry-level level model from Sony’s highly regarded single-lens translucent
(SLT) range. Equipped with a 20.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor the A58’s big selling
point is its class-leading 8fps maximum continuous shooting speed, which is
made possible by the fixed semi-translucent mirror design of the camera. As a
result, there’s no iptocal viewfinder, although the A58 does come equipped with
a super-sharp 1.44m-dot electronic viewfinder that’s one of the best we’ve
used. This makes it an ideal choice for those who want to capture sport or
fast-moving action.

Nikon Coolpix P520

£259.00 (was £379.99)
Amazon UK

The big selling point of
the Coolpix P520 is that it comes equipped with a whopping 42x optical zoom
that offers the 35,m focal range equivalent of 24-1000mm – the highest of any
Nikon superzooom to date. Thankfully, the lens benefits from Nikon’s own
Vibration Reduction image stabilisation technology to keep your image sharp.
Behind the lens is a 18.1MP CMOS sensor, which is backisde-illuminated for
enhanced performance in low light. Other notable highlights include 1080p Full
HD movie recording, a 3-inch/921k-dot LCD display, a 201k-dot electronic
viewfinder and built-in GPS that allows you to geotag your images.

Canon EOS 700D & 18-55mm lens

£582.27 (was £749.99)
Amazon UK

The 700D has only been out for a few months and yet its
price has already dropped significantly. If you’re looking for a mid-range model with
a bit more going for it than a no-frills entry-level DSLR then the 700D fits
the bill perfectly. Built around an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor the 700D further
benefits from Canon’s proprietary Hybrid AF focus technology that enables much
faster focusing when the camera is being used in Live View mode or when
recording movies. On the back the 700D is fitted with a vari-angle 3-inch/920k-dot
LCD display that offers touchscreen functionality – to date it’s the only DSLR
to offer this.

Nikon D3100 & 18-55mm lens

£279.00 (was £580.00)
Amazon UK

The GX1 was released in
2012 and is positioned as an enthusiast-level compact system camera. It comes
equipped with a 16MP Live MOS sensor, a 3-inch/460k-dot LCD display with
touchscreen functionality and Panasonic’s Light Speed autofocus module. In
addition, the GX1 also offers 1080p Full HD video recording and a continuous shooting
speed of 10fps. You also get four individual Function (Fn) buttons that you can
assign to various camera functions, along with a hotshoe accessory port that
can accept electronic viewfinders as well as external flashguns

Fujifilm HS50 EXR

£329.99 (was £449.99)
Amazon UK

Launched during the summer of 2013, the HS50 EXR is
a highly capable superzoom that sports a powerful, manually operated 42x
optical zoom that offers the 35mm focal range equivalent of 24-1000mm. Not only
that but the HS50 EXR also benefits from a half-inch sensor that’s slightly
larger than the regular 1/2.3-inch sensors normally found in superzooms.
Furthermore, it’s of the proprietary Fuji EXR variety too, which means it can
be optimised for enhanced performance in lowlight and high-contrast situations. Amazon UK is currently offering over £100 off the launch price – not bad
considering it’s still a relatively new model.

Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

£339.53 (was £449.99)
Amazon UK

The Canon SX50 HS employs a
super powerful 50x optical zoom that offers the 35mm focal range equivalent of
24-1200mm and yet manages to keep the overall package relatively compact. Image
Stabilisation is built in as standard and the 12.1MP CMOS sensor is capable of
shooting RAW images as well as 1080p Full HD movies. While the electronic
viewfinder is a relatively low-spec 220k-dots, the SX50 HS does benefit from a
2.7-inch vari-angle rear display.

Fujifilm Finepix X20

£411.40 (was £499.99)
Amazon UK

Launched earlier this year
the retro rangefinder-styled X20 replaces the popular X10 as the Fuji’s
flagship advanced compact. Although resolution of the 2/3-inch sensor remains
at 12MP the X20 sports a newly developed X-Trans CMOS II sensor that hosts
phase detection pixels for faster focus speeds. In addition, the X20 also gets
an improved optical viewfinder that shows 85% of the total frame coverage along
with overlaid shooting information. Elsewhere, the X20 sticks with the 28-112mm
(f/2-2.8) manually operated zoom, while on the back there’s a 2.8in/460k-dot
LCD display. Full HD movie recording and RAW image capture are both offered, as
are full manual controls over exposure settings.

Samsung Galaxy Camera

£329.00 (was £399.00)

British Home Stores

The Galaxy Camera is undoubtedly an interesting proposition. Essentially it’s a
16.1MP compact camera (though admittedly quite a large one) with a 21x optical
zoom that runs on the Android mobile operating system with full Wi-Fi
connectivity. This means you can use the Android part of the camera to download
all kinds of fun image editing apps and then use them to work on the images
you’ve captured with the camera, and then email or upload them straight to the
web direct from the camera. This is largely made possible by the 4.8in/720p HD
touchscreen on the back. Because the phone runs on Android platform you can
even use it to play Angry Birds when not out shooting. In fact, about the only
thing you can’t do with it is make phone calls.
