Best for Sports and Wildlife: Sony A6100 ($748)

“If you hate waiting for a camera to find focus, Sony’s A6100 may be the model for you. It’s a 24.2MP APS-C compact camera with great autofocus that tracks moving subjects very well and is also easy to use. It’s practically a point-and-shoot, but what pocket camera offers burst shooting up to 11fps with continuous autofocus and great subject-tracking? The autofocus is so fast and accurate, and with such great sensor coverage, that the A6100 becomes a viable option for wildlife and sports enthusiasts who want to freeze fast action.”

Best Camera for Control Freaks: Fujifilm X-S10 ($999)

“The Fujifilm X-S10 is two-thirds the cost of the X-T4, but it uses the same sensor, processor and autofocus system as the flagship body. (That would be the 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4.) And unlike many X Series cameras, the Fuji X-S10 is only the second to include in-body image stabilization (after the higher-end X-H1), so handholding stills and video is more effective than ever. It weighs in at just over a pound with batteries thanks to partial magnesium construction.”
