System Camera of the Year 2018

Awards Winner
Introducing the best APS-C camera on planet Earth. It's a bold statement, we know, but stick with us. You see, rather than reinvent the wheel, Fuji taken every feature on the already outstanding X-T2 and incrementally upgraded it. The result is an all-round beast of a camera that manages to astound in every photographic way imaginable. From the gorgeous body and the superb manual controls to the pro-level 4K video options, the high-res EVF, and the super-fast autofocus and burst shooting. There's nothing here that hasn't been refined to near-perfection. While we'd be slightly hesitant to call anything flawless, the Fuji X-T3 is certainly in the frame, and those trademark retro looks never disappoint. Above all else, you’ll take wonderful photos with a camera that continually begs you to be more daring.

The runners-up

Nikon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera is a real stunner: sturdily built, easy to use and capable of capturing some absolutely breathtaking and incredibly detailed pictures with that 45.7MP full-frame CMOS sensor. If only it didn’t cost £3400 just for the body.

Canon also made its full-frame mirrorless debut this year with the EOS R - a camera with a superb electronic viewfinder, excellent autofocus and impressive image quality. But it still left us feeling a little underwhelmed.

An eye-catching camera that crams in loads of tech, including 4K video, a new 24.2MP sensor and an articulating screen, despite costing £2000 for the body only the A7 III offers incredible value for money.

The GH5S delivers so much for filmmakers to get excited about. It’s a combination that can’t be found anywhere else, crammed into a compact body that’s weatherproof and easy to use.
