The RX10 IV updates Sony's high-end super-zoom retaining its predecessor's 24-600mm / 25x zoom and OLED EVF, but inheriting the RX100 V's sensor for phase-detect AF, 24fps bursts and 4k. There's also a touchscreen and Bluetooth; here's my review-so-far!

The RX10 III updates Sony's high-end Bridge Super-zoom retaining its predecessor's 1 inch 20 Megapixel sensor, 4k video, super-slow motion modes, electronic viewfinder and flip-up 3-inch screen. What's new is the lens, tripling the reach of the earlier RX10 II with a range of 24-600mm. Find out if it's the bridge camera for you in Ken's review.

Sony's RX100 V is the fifth model in its enormously successful line of compacts for enthusiasts. It keeps the body, tilting selfie-screen, popup viewfinder and 24-70mm lens of the Mark IV. But the 20 Megapixel sensor now features 315 embedded phase-detect AF points and shoots at 24fps with CAF. Find out if it's the best high-end compact in my review!

Sony's Alpha A7s Mark II is a full-frame mirrorless camera that's optimized for 4k video, particularly in very low light. Sony's essentially taken the 12 Megapixel sensor of the original A7s Mark I and slotted it into the body of the A7r Mark II. As such the sensor still delivers clean 4k video - and photos - at high…

The most significant update is to the sensor, which retains the older model's 20 Megapixel resolution as well as its 1 inch physical dimension, but introduces a new stacked architecture with embedded signal processing and…

These days it's not enough to simply cram a massive zoom range into a tiny form factor, a successful compact super-zoom has to accommodate a lot more besides. With its earlier HX50(V) and HX60(V) Sony was already doing pretty well, but reducing its already tiny proportions while adding a flip-up screen and an electronic viewfinder it's not resting on…

Sony's Cyber-shot H400 is a bridge super-zoom camera with a huge 63.3x optical range. This ranks it only a fraction below the industry leader, Canon's SX60 HS, but at a much lower price point. As such you won't find an articulated screen, support for RAW, a big viewfinder nor video at 1080p, but the core specification remains good for the…
