Stuff Gadget Awards 2012 – Camera of the Year shortlist
The Camera of the Year award was no snap decision – these shooters are how we see the future.
Canon EOS 650D
from £500 canon.co.uk
Featuring a dual AF system, this 18MP DSLR with simple options eases beginners into its wide array of functions with aplomb.
Nikon Coolpix AW100
That rugged camo frame surrounds more than just a waterproof, shockproof 16MP camera – the AW100 has GPS, a world map and compass. Beauty, brawn and brains – what more could you ask for?
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
from £400, panasonic.co.uk
Small yet manual control friendly, the GX1 improves on its already-impressive predecessor the GF1 on all counts.
Olympus OM-D E-M5
Astounding in almost every way, this sets the standard for compact system cameras with its fast autofocus, 9fps bust shooting, an excellent EVF, 16MP, ISO 25,600 pics and the awesome Live Time mode. A worthy successor to the OM name.
