DPReview Product of the Year

Shortlist:

  • Canon EF 11-24mm F4L USM
  • Nikon D750
  • Samsung NX1
  • Sony Alpha 7R II

Winner: Sony Alpha 7R II

The Sony’s combination of image quality, video capability and autofocus performance come together to make it our camera of the year. The camera’s sheer capability: a 42MP sensor that performs well in high contrast or low light situations, built-in image stabilization, 4K video with internal recording, is hugely impressive. But add to this the ability to sensibly use other brands’ lenses and the a7R II becomes a significant camera far beyond the market for this particular high-end model: it could be the sign of things to come.

DPReview Innovation Award

Shortlist:

  • DxO ONE
  • Samsung NX1
  • Sony Alpha 7R II
  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV

Winner: Samsung NX1

The Samsung NX1 is a hugely innovative camera: the largest BSI CMOS sensor (at the time of launch) the first camera to use the next-generation H.265 compression system to allow internal 4K video recording, the first mirrorless camera to shoot at 15 frames per second, the first to use low-power Bluetooth to maintain a camera/smartphone connection…

Best Full Frame System Camera

Shortlist:

  • Canon EOS 5DS R
  • Nikon D750
  • Sony Alpha 7 II
  • Sony Alpha 7R II

Joint-winner: Sony Alpha 7R II

Joint-winner: Nikon D750

The Nikon D750 is probably the most complete enthusiast camera we’ve ever encountered. The combination of image quality, ergonomic design and autofocus capability make it a really compelling package. It’s not the cheapest way to get into full-frame but it’s so capable that it still represents great value for money.
