The Nikon D5500 is now here but it might not be quite the update you were looking for. When I reviewed the Nikon D5300, it was the best consumer DSLR around and apparently Nikon agrees as the biggest upgrade brings touch abilities to the screen. While Canon has had this feature for several years, this is the first Nikon touch screen DSLR which is a welcome change but likely not enough to make you want to upgrade. The good news is that now is a great time to snag the amazing Nikon D5300 on a huge sale as well. You can order the new Nikon D5500 body today for $899 or as a kit for with the lens for $999:
Body Only - $899

This year was a great year for cameras and technology so let's take a look at my favorite and the best new cameras of 2014 ranging from mirrorless to DSLR and video cameras which are also the cameras you should be looking at purchasing this 2014. Check out all the info past the break.
There is no question that the LX100 caused a bit of a stir when it was first announced with a slew of new features and technologies, especially for this form factor. With a small-ish body, a wide aperture f1.7-2.8 lens, and features such as 4k video, a multiaspect ratio sensor and up to 40fps with the electronic shutter. But even with all these features and technologies in playthe Panasonic LX100 deliver where it counts? Check out the full review past the break.
