Hiya Gizmodo! My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography — it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in? Cheers, Mum

When you buy a mirrorless/compact system camera — you're going to want a great lens. Each brand has its own range of lenses, but alternatively you can use adapters to give you more options to choose from.
We've put together a quick overview of each brand's offerings, to show you what's what in the mirrorless camera lens world. Got any questions? Ask us in the comments.
As the sub-$1000, beginner DSLR camera's utility has been gradually been replaced by the rise of mirrorless cameras, the just-over $US1000 DSLR market remains an area where camera companies are hoping to reign in more advanced and even professional users. With that in mind, let's take a look at Pentax's new K-3, a completely overhauled mid-range shooter from the storied brand.
We've been excited about the rugged Pentax K-30 since we first saw the weather-sealed body. It's much better built than other DSLRs in the $US1000 range. But can its photos and videos hold up?
It was just yesterday that leaked shots of the Pentax K-01 turned up, and now here's the full monty. It's not what you might call a head-turner, but it's a pretty impressive addition to mirrorless cameras.
A collection of official-looking leaked photos made it on to the Pentax Forums today, purportedly unveiling the upcoming K-01 mirrorless camera. It looks to be available in multiple colours, features an HDR mode, and comes equipped with a 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens. There's been no official word from Pentax as to availability or price.
