Want to invest in a CSC camera, but need help deciding? Here at What's The Best we're here to give you the best advice.

We've pitted the Canon EOS M50, Olympus O-MD E-M10 Mark III and Fujifilm X-A5 digital cameras head-to-head to find out which is worth your hard-earned cash. Each of these cameras is available for less than £650.

To help you choose, we've got high-resolution JPEGs from each camera. They're unedited, apart from exposure levelling from the RAW file, allowing you to zoom in, check out the colours and make your own mind up based on what matters - image quality.

We've given you three shots from the three cameras, so you can decide which one offers the best image quality.
