We’re counting down our top 10 most popular sample galleries of 2017 and at long last we’ve reached our top 3 galleries. Holding it down with the bronze medal is the Fujifilm X100F.

What do you say about a camera like the X100F? It’s a staff favorite for sure – we gave it a gold award in our review. Even after publishing that, we found ourselves taking it on road trips and using it to photograph Seattle’s famous cherry blossoms. We were even fortunate enough to get our hands on an early version of the X100F prior to its release and shot a beta sample gallery as well. Check that out below:

Top 10 sample galleries of the year #4: the Leica M10

We’re counting down our top 10 most popular sample galleries of 2017. Images in these galleries have been viewed over a million times by you, our readers. In fact, our #4 gallery received a total of 1.4 million views – and it belongs to the Leica M10.

Pricey as it is, this camera is both capable of excellent image quality and really enjoyable to shoot with – read our first impressions review. We think it’s the best digital Leica ever made and one heck of a travel companion. Barney brought it along with him to explore Japan and came back with many of the images shown above.

Top 10 sample galleries of the year #5: the Fujifilm X-T20

We’re counting down our top 10 most popular sample galleries of 2017, and we’ve at last cracked the top 5 (see the other winners below). Sitting pretty in the #5 spot is a little number we like to call the Fujifilm X-T20.

The little brother of the mighty Fujifilm X-T2, the X-T20 uses the same sensor and image processor, but packed in a smaller, lighter body. We think it’s a beautifully designed mirrorless camera that is also pleasure to use – it even earned a silver award in our review.

We’ve got four sample galleries left to go, and the final four represent some of our absolute favorite products launched this year. Stay tuned!

All joking aside, this is a lovely little camera.

Top 10 sample galleries of the year #8: Nikon D7500

We’re counting down our top 10 most popular sample galleries of 2017. At the #8 spot we have the Nikon D7500, which launched in the spring of this year.

This enthusiast DSLR is very well suited for all forms of still photography – read how it won one of our editors over – thanks to excellent subject tracking, a fast burst rate, deep buffer, good image quality, and solid ergonomics. It sits right below the APS-C flagship Nikon D500 (read how the two stack up) and borrows a few key components from it and the Nikon D5.

We gave it a silver award in our review – it also scored a bit higher than its closest Canon competitor, the EOS 80D (read how the two compare). So take a peek around our gallery and see why we think this camera rocks.

DxOMark: DJI Zenmuse X7 outperforms GH5, on par with top-notch APS-C DSLRs

Remember when the DJI Zenmuse X7 drone camera was released, and we said DJI had become a camera company without anybody noticing? You might consider the latest scores out of DxOMark proof of that assertion. The sensor testing company just released its review of the X7, ranking it above the popular Panasonic GH5 and on part with top-scoring APS-C sensors like the Nikon D7500.

Sporting the largest sensor yet for a DJI camera module, the X7 boasts a Super 35/APS-C sized chip that DxO discovered will hold its own against the leaders in that category. In fact, going through the rankings, you’ll find that only two APS-C sensors have ever scored higher than 86. And when you compare it to one of the top-scoring APS-C cameras (the Nikon D7500) and the often-drone-mounted Panasonic GH5, you see that DJI is not playing around:

As DxOMark points out in their conclusion, this is an impressive showing for the drone maker:

Thanks to an increase in its size as much as to technological advancements, the DJI Zenmuse X7’s sensor takes a significant step up in performance from the Zenmuse X5S sensor. In fact, it delivers results that compete closely with those from a high-scoring APS-C format DSLR, despite being housed in a camera that’s mounted in a stabilized gimbal and specifically designed for aerial photography.

Be sure to head over to DxOMark to read their full DJI Zenmuse X7 review. And then check out our own opinion piece about DJI’s transformation from a drone maker, into a full fledged camera company.
