Best camera of 2019

Despite all of the doom and gloom about contraction in the digital photography industry as a whole, 2019 saw plenty of new cameras released, some of which were very important - and seriously impressive. These include Fujifilm's 100MP GFX 100, Sony's new flagship a7R IV, and Canon's affordable full-frame EOS RP, among others.

But which was your favorite? This your chance to let us know. And if you think we missed something, please leave a comment.

Voting runs through December 15th, and once the vote has closed we'll run a second poll to find your choice for overall product of the year.


Canon had a busy year, releasing products across its entire lineup from large-sensor PowerShot compacts to the full-frame EOS RP. Did any of them make it into your gear bag, or shopping list for the holiday season?

Let us know if you think any of these cameras deserve a place on our list of best products of 2019.


Fujifilm consolidated both its APS-C and medium-format lineups this year. The 100MP, 4K video-capable GFX 100 was inevitably the release which generated most attention, but the X-Pro3 and X-T30 both represented strong competition in the midrange / enthusiast APS-C market. Meanwhile the X-A7 was among our favorite entry-level ILCs of the year. What's your opinion?


Leica gets a lot of criticism for making products which most photographers will never be able to afford, but in recent years the company has somewhat changed direction. While the SL2 and Q2 are undoubtedly pricey, they also offer a combination of features which is not available in any other single competitor, along with useful refinements like solid connectivity options and weather-sealing.

We really like the Q2 and SL2, but do either of them deserve to be ranked among the best cameras of 2019? Let us know by casting your vote.


The only mirrorless camera released by Nikon this year was the Z50. Resembling a downsized Z6 (which is not at all a bad thing, given how nice that camera is to use) the Z50 is Nikon's first APS-C format mirrorless, and one of the most attractive and ergonomically refined cameras in its class. But that's just our opinion - what's yours?


Olympus's camera releases this year spanned the breadth of its lineup, from the TG-6 weather-sealed compact up to the OM-D E-M1X - the company's first truly 'professional' Micro Four Thirds mirrorless model. Meanwhile the very compact, highly-specc'd OM-D E-M1 III is a camera solidly in the traditional OM-D mold, offering plenty of features in a very portable body.

Do either or all three of these models make your list of favorite cameras of 2019?


This year for Panasonic was mostly about growing its S1-series full-frame mirrorless cameras, but alongside the S1, S1R and video-oriented S1H, the company also launched the DC-G95, a very likable Micro Four Thirds model aimed at enthusiast and hobbyist photographers. Let us know what you think of them by casting your vote.


Ricoh only released one major camera this year but it's one of our all-time favorites. The GR III is a tiny, powerful compact with an APS-C sensor and a sharp 28mm equivalent lens. In our opinion it's a great travel companion if you don't need a zoom, but what do you think?


Sony hasn't taken its foot off the gas much in recent years, and 2019 saw several major camera launches. The a6100 and a6600 update the company's APS-C lineup, while the a7R IV is a full-frame high-technology flagship worthy of the term. Meanwhile the Cyber-shot RX100 VII updates the already highly capable RX100 VI with improved autofocus.

Do any of these cameras get your vote for best of 2019? Let us know.
