Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE BOX - BY / JENNIFER DUD­LEY-NI­CHOL­SON & ROD CH­ESTER

PANA­SONIC LUMIX GX850

This tiny com­pact sys­tem cam­era is al­most small enough to fit in a pocket. With a flip-up touch­screen, a kit lens equiv­a­lent to 24-64mm and 4K mode for shoot­ing ac­tion, it is a handy travel com­pan­ion. $799 / pana­sonic.com/au

FU­JI­FILM X-T20

This cam­era has more di­als and cus­tomi­sa­tions than you should ex­pect of a 383g gad­get, and even nicks some el­e­ments from its X-T2 big brother. High­lights in­clude a 24.3-me­gapixel res­o­lu­tion, wi-fi, 8fps shoot­ing, and an auto fea­ture as a backup. $1399 body / fu­ji­film.com.au

3SIXT UL­TRA HD SPORTS AC­TION

Al­most $400 cheaper than a top-of-the-line GoPro, it of­fers 4K video cap­ture, a 170-de­gree wide-an­gle lens, wi-fi, and a water­proof case to 30m. An ac­tion cam­era for a tight bud­get or for those rough on their toys. $180 / 3sixtgear.com

PANA­SONIC LUMIX DMC-LX10

This pocket-sized cam­era with a 24-72mm zoom and 20.1-me­gapixel sen­sor has a handy 4K photo mode and a 3-inch flip-up LCD. Its stand­out fea­tures are the f1.4 max­i­mum aper­ture and a post-fo­cus mode. $999 / pana­sonic.com/au

OLYM­PUS OM-D E-M1 MARK II

The new­est Olym­pus flag­ship com­pact sys­tem cam­era boasts a 24-me­gapixel sen­sor and takes an al­ready good cam­era for­mat and makes it faster, bet­ter and smarter. Able to shoot 18 frames per sec­ond in aut­o­fo­cus mode, dust­proof and splash­proof, with five-axis im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion and a 50-me­gapixel high-res mode, this has enough fea­tures to chal­lenge even the most diehard DSLR fan to re­con­sider their choices. $2799 body / olym­pus.com.au
