The Canon 6D and 7D Mark II may seem like similar cameras on paper but they are actually very different beasts. These cameras both have 20.2 MP sensors, 3” LCD screens, and similar price points but that is where the similarities end. Each of these cameras excel in certain areas and the decision between them largely comes down to intended use.
Many think the biggest decision when buying a camera is between professional or entry-level but that isn’t always the case. There is an entire class of high-end crop sensor cameras out there that will do some jobs as well as, if not better than, their full frame counterparts—and they’ll do it for less money. Canon’s 70D and 7D Mark II are two cameras that straddle the line between beginner and high end.
When it comes to DSLRs, full frame cameras are the gold standard. Most professional photographers prefer full frame cameras for their ability to capture more light, show more detail, and perform better in dimly lit situations. The Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 6D are excellent full frame options but which one is right for you?
The Canon 5D Mark IV is one of the most anticipated cameras from Canon in recent memory and I am going to take you through some of my favorite features and share some of my files for you to download and see the quality for yourself.
As a landscape photographer who hikes a considerable amount, I am always looking for ways to lighten my load on and off the trail. After switching to full frame DSLRs years ago, I had never considered the Fuji system due to the cropped (APS-C) sensor. Despite being convinced I’d never go back to a crop sensors, I couldn’t help my curiosity after hearing so many great reviews coming from Fuji converts.
The Panasonic GH4 is an amazing little camera. One thing that stood out to me in all the signal and noise out there was that this camera isn’t a great performer at high ISO. My initial quick tests bore that out. But I wanted to know if I could shoot at night, in a place like San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, and still walk away with usable footage?
I’ve been playing with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera for a few weeks now and have, after much experimentation, finally narrowed the massive selection available for this camera down to my 5 essential picks.
The Hasselblad H4X and the 80MP Phase One Digital Back is a powerful combination. We’ve put together a few example images from our latest 80MP addition to our medium format inventory. You can download all of the RAW, completely unedited files for pixel peeping purposes and to test drive the settings in Capture One.
Mirrorless cameras and the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system are gaining in popularity. From Panasonic’s GH3 to the Blackmagic, more and more cameras are coming out in MFT mount. Olympus originally pioneered the Four Thirds system and, along with Panasonic, announced a new Micro Four Thirds standard in 2008. This new system increased in quality while decreasing in bulk.
The new Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE for Canon is an ultrasharp, full frame lens that controls distortion much better than its other ultrawide peers. Check out our test images to see why.
