Best Compact Camera: Sony Cyber-Shot RX100

TrustedReviews Awards 11

A clear best-in-class winner, the Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 has a much larger sensor than most compact cameras, and has 20.2 megapixels to play with. Having a sensor as large as some interchangeable lens cameras gives it great low-light performance. If you want great image quality but don’t want the bulk of a CSC or DSLR, you can’t go wrong.

2012 Camera of the Year runner-up awards:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

FujiFilm X10

Best Interchangeable Lens Camera: Nikon D800

TrustedReviews Awards 3

If you want a full-frame sensor DSLR but don't want to spend a huge pile of cash, you need to check out the Nikon D800. At £2k it's among the cheaper full-frame models, keeping it within reach of the semi-pro photographer. It has a 36.2-megapixel sensor and fantastic image quality.

Best Interchangeable Lens Camera of 2012 Award Runners-up:

Sony NEX-5n

Canon EOS-1D X

Best Camcorder of 2012: Panasonic HC-X900

TrustedReviews Awards 2

If you want the best video quality, to store your memories with real fidelity, the Panasonic HC-X900 is what you're after. It uses three 3MP sensors, taking care of each part of the RGB colour array. With a 12x optical zoom that can be extended to 23x with some digital jiggery-pokery, it's far more flexible than using a DSLR's video mode.

Best Camcorder of 2012 Award Runners-up:

JVC HD Everio GZ-V515
