Nikon, $799, nikon.com.au ★★★★ When you pick up this clever lit­tle cam­era, it’s easy to see why many DSLR users are switch­ing to com­pact sys­tem cam­eras. With a sleek mag­ne­sium al­loy body and a back al­most filled with a three-inch LCD, the lack of con­trols hide an im­pres­sive list of features. This 14.2-megapixel cam­era can shoot 15 pho­tos a sec­ond us­ing aut­o­fo­cus track­ing, or a stun­ning 60 frames a sec­ond if you choose a fixed fo­cal point. It has an ISO range of up to 6400 and sup­ports a wi-fi adap­tor. Two ‘‘best moment’’ cap­ture modes plus full-HD video and 400fps slow-mo­tion modes also fea­ture. On the down­side, there is no hot­shoe for ex­ter­nal flash and you have to nav­i­gate a menu to se­lect aper­ture or shut­ter speed. With its in­ter­change­able lenses and op­tional wa­ter­proof case, this lit­tle unit has plenty to of­fer.
