The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 is the world’s only premium travel zoom. Not only does it feature advanced photographic controls with dual control-dials and an EVF with Eye-Start sensor, it also matches its 25-250mm equivalent zoom with a large 20 megapixels 1″ CMOS sensor which is making the rounds among premium compacts.

This lets the ZS100 deliver high image quality with good low-light performance in a pocket-size form factor even with a relatively long 10X optical zoom lens. This compact camera records 4K Ultra-HD video at 30 FPS and 1080p ones at 60 FPS.

Fuji stunned with world with their entry into the mirrorless cameras with the X-Pro1 which landed at the high-end of market along with a trio of prime lenses. Four years later, they unveiled its successor, continuing with the rangefinder-style body but making it weatherproof and introducing a new 24 megapixels APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor with built-in Phase-Detection.

Although lots of competitors have appeared among high-end mirrorless cameras, Fuji is holding its own thanks to their unique color-filter-array which stands moire without any anti-alias filter. A speedy hybrid shutter allows the X-Pro2 to maintain a full 8 FPS and capture frames at 1/32000s, making it one of the fastest mirrorless cameras around.
