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As the sub-$1000, beginner DSLR camera's utility has been gradually been replaced by the rise of mirrorless cameras, the just-over $US1000 DSLR market remains an area where camera companies are hoping to reign in more advanced and even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.
Point and shoots are generally seen as the wimpy hacks of the camera world, when compared to modern DSLRs and fancy new Micro Four Thirds cameras. But their specs — like the 18x optical zoom on the Pentax Optio RZ18 — are getting pretty impressive. It's like when Carrot Top grew mega-muscles and could all-of-a-sudden kick your arse.
