It's been a heck of a year for new cameras. New film cameras, new medium format cameras, new high-speed sports cameras, new pinhole cameras… we've seen manufacturers push the technical limits of photography to new levels, and we've seen them resurrect the most fundamental processes of film photography.

With so many cameras being released in 2022 (even if many of them have been hard to actually buy, given the never-ending parts and supply chain issues), we've all got our favorites – the cameras that have wowed us the most, or that we've enjoyed shooting with more than any other.
