Fujifilm or canon

Fujifilm or canon DEFAULT

Time was, when you decided to become a digital photographer, deciding what brand name to shoot with was a matter of choosing between two big names. Nikon vs. Canon has been the subject of many an argument, since most of us become strictly loyal to the brand we choose. Well, in the words of Bob Dylan, “The times, they are a-changin’.”

While the “big guns” have been duking it out with their DSLR’s in megapixel wars, other manufacturers have been focused on newer and better technologies. One of those manufacturers is Fujifilm and you might be surprised to learn that a whole lot of amateur and pro photographers have made the switch to their gear. Why? Well, that’s what we’re going to explore in this article.

What’s so special about Fujifilm?

Before we get into specifics, it’s worth noting that Fujifilm is far from a newcomer on the photo scene. In fact, those of us who shot with film SLR’s “back in the day” will recall that Fujifilm was the major competitor for another iconic brand and was preferred by many photographers in many situations. They also did and still do manufacture disposable 35mm film cameras, including an underwater version, and a line of instant film cameras.

If that wasn’t enough, since the digital photo age began, they’ve applied their technological know-how to develop their own line of photo finishing and business products, optical devices and even a line of skin care products as well as digital cameras. By the way, Fujinon optics have been delivering some of the world’s best binoculars for years. In short, this is a serious company with a long history of success.

What do they make?

For the pro and serious amateur, Fujifilm offers their X Series mirrorless cameras and lenses, currently featuring 15 cameras ranging from compact to APS-C sensor, interchangeable-lens models. 15 X-mount prime lenses and 12 zooms round out the series well. That line will be our main concern here. They also offer the GFX 50S, a medium format, 51.4 megapixel mirrorless body with 5 lenses available that’s knocking the socks off of pros with its low light capability. That’s in addition to their Finepix line of fixed-lens cameras.

What’s so great about the X Series?

Now we’re getting to the heart of the matter. What’s so special about the X Series line of cameras and lenses that it can make “Canonistas” and “Nikonistas” change their minds? There’s more than one reason as you might have guessed. Here’s what some of the newly-converted Fuji fans are saying:

Size and Weight: This is the most common primary reason cited by converts. A big, heavy, full-frame camera may look cool, but it’s not fun packing one or two around all day, especially with an assortment of lenses. Fujifilm’s X Series delivers quality in a much smaller package and the mirrorless design is much lighter, too.

Don’t get hung up on the fact that these are APS-C sensor cameras. If you’re planning to print something billboard-size, it might be an issue. For more realistic purposes, however,  the16.3 megapixel CMOS II (XT-1) and 24.3 CMOS III (XT-2) sensors will give you plenty of resolution, especially when coupled with lenses designed for the crop sensor and high-end RAW processing software like Luminar.

Price: No surprise here. A professional Nikon or Canon DSLR will set you back $3,000 or more. The 24.3 megapixel Fuji X-T2 is over $1,000 less and the X-T1 is about 1/3 the price. When buying brand-name glass, the difference in price can be even greater.

If the everyday difference wasn’t enough, Fuji has just authorized lower prices from US dealers on several X Series cameras and associated gear for the summer.

Better Lens Quality: Fujinon lenses consistently outperform their counterparts from other manufacturers. Though smaller and lighter in weight than many, the glass in the X Series is held in high regard by Fuji shooters. Take a look at this review of the standard 35mm prime from Imaging Resource.

Image Quality: Fujifilm’s X Series cameras deliver astounding clarity and sharpness, partly due to the lack of an anti-aliasing filter. Straight out of the camera, your shots will be sharper than many high-end Nikon and Canon DSLR’s. Read what Tony Northrup had to say about it here.

Better, More Versatile Autofocus: Fujifilm’s X Series AF system reads its data from the sensor rather than the lens. That means no lens calibration and a reduced chance of errors. The sophisticated AF systems offer features like hybrid detection, up to 91 focus points and modes you won’t find on other brands. Put simply, their Autofocus systems are superior.

Lower Accessory Costs: When you have to buy filters in sizes around 95mm and larger, prices increase drastically. Fujifilm’s X Series lenses incorporate high quality in a smaller diameter. That means lower costs for filters. By the way, most lens models come with a lens hood, so you’ll save money there over most other lenses, too.

Better Support: While Canon and Nikon are constantly developing new camera models, Fujifilm develops firmware upgrades for their existing cameras that enhance performance. That makes the Fuji a better long-term investment.

Are those the only reasons? Hardly. In addition to these common reasons, there are a host of more specific and personal reasons coming in from recently converted Fuji users all over the world. These mirrorless cameras are making their mark in a big way, and there’s good reason for those two top brands to be concerned. Their domination in the market is being dismantled, one happy customer at a time.

Spoiler alert: despite what you may see on YouTube, there is no better camera, only better for you.  And I’ve found that, compared to Sony, Fuji mirrorless cameras are better for me and I’ll discuss why below.

Going mirrorless

In the 90s I was using an old Pentax 35mm; Fuji Velvia was my favorite film.  When the digital revolution started, I stuck with Pentax and their *ist D series DSLRs.  I eventually switched to Canon for their legendary lenses and was loyal to them for almost 10 years.  Then a few years ago I sold off all of my Canon gear and became a full-time Sony shooter.

Reasons for switching to Sony mirrorless

I love to pack light.  Sony’s a6000 was just as capable as the Canon 5DII for my purposes but at the fraction of the size & weight.  This really appealed to someone preparing for a 210-mile backpacking trip.

Sony’s mirrorless cameras offered some amazing capabilities, top-end technology, and was quickly making waves amongst professional photographers.  They had a limited lens selection at first, but the lenses they did offer were pretty good.

But after a couple of years, there were just some things that started to get to me: the cameras got bigger and heavier as they evolved, they started to feel more like computers than cameras, and they just seemed too fragile for what I was doing.

How Fujifilm is Different than Sony

I’m not going to go into the technical details that some of you may be looking for, like image comparisons or pixel density or anything like that. Those are largely superficial and invented in camera forums.

I’m going to discuss the “big picture” differences between Fujifilm and Sony, the ones that in my mind should matter.

Where I prefer Fujifilm vs Sony

Dials everywhere

Sony has notoriously awful menus. Like the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s as if they threw every available option in a bucket and then pulled things out at random. Not that Fujifilm menus are a lot better (they’re actually organized in a way that makes sense), but adjusting settings on a Fujifilm makes you feel like you’re operating a camera. This was super important to me, someone who grew up on an old Pentax.

You don’t have to navigate menus or program buttons to change common settings – they’re all knobs and switches on the Fuji cameras.  It brings back the feel of an actual camera.  You can see what your settings are just by glancing at the camera, and without turning the power on.  Aperture, ISO, shutter, drive mode, metering, focus mode, exposure compensation – it’s all there with tangible controls that show you what’s set.

Why is this important? We’re supposed to be making pictures, not operating a computer. Anything, no matter how small, that makes this endeavor more enjoyable is worth more than gold.

fujifilm XT1

Weather sealing

The newer Sony cameras and the professional Fujifilm cameras are sealed, but Fujifilm does a better job of keeping the elements out of those sensitive electronics.  Ideal for those who spend time in tough conditions. 

On the Fujifilm vs Sony lenses too – my Sony lenses were quickly infiltrated with dust and I spent a good amount of time removing dust spots during post-processing. In fact, I spent more time doing this than anything else. Yes, I could have made a “dust map” and sent those lenses in for a cleaning after every trip, but that’s the thing. I shouldn’t have to be doing those things in the first place.

I’ve had my Fujifilm system much longer now, have taken it into more austere environments than I ever took my Sony cameras, and have yet to remove a single dust spot. Less to worry about.

On top of that, Fujifilm’s lenses are killer awesome. That Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 – oh my God!

They stay small  

The Fujifilm X Series cameras are, in size & weight, in between the Sony a6000 series and the a7 series cameras.  But because of the APS-C sensor, the lenses are smaller than their full-frame counterparts for Sony cameras.

This size & weight savings is cumulative. Add up a smaller camera body, smaller lenses, a lighter tripod, get a smaller bag, and traveling just got a whole lot easier.

fujifilm vs sony

Firmware upgrades

Sony releases firmware updates only when they need to, to address a bug or new lens.  Fujifilm releases firmware upgrades when they come out with new tech, improving camera capabilities.  It’s an upgrade, not just an update.  That’s cool.  The cameras are better long-term investments.

Film simulations, customizable

When I was still deciding on Fuji vs Sony, I had heard that many professional Fujifilm photographers don’t even process their photos, thanks to Fujifilm’s film simulations included in their cameras. The JPG vs RAW discussion is best saved for another post, but these film simulations give you much more than Sony’s “Creative Control” menu. You can get classic film stocks, like my aforementioned Velvia.

You can further customize these film stocks, tweaking their contrast, color, and dynamic range. It gives you Lightroom-like presets within your camera, leaving less to process later on, ultimately saving you time.

The more time I spend perfecting my Fujifilm JPG workflow, the more time I’ve gained back by not having to process anything later on. More time for more important things, with equally beautiful photos.

fuji pro neg hi

But what about APS-C image quality versus full-frame?

You know what…at this point, it doesn’t really matter anymore.

With today’s technology, just about any major camera manufacturer is going to build a camera that will produce sharp images with great color, and the ability to make impressive recoveries in the shadows & highlights.

Sensor size is a moot point, an argument reserved for photographers who need to make up for other shortcomings by bragging about how they shoot full-frame only. I know amazingly successful photographers who only use Micro 4/3rds cameras, who will any day make a more impactful photo than photographers who say it’s all about sensor size.

You might notice subtle differences by zooming in to 100% and doing side-by-side comparisons, but that’s not how anyone you should care about views your photos. Your viewers care more about the content of the photo, not the pixel pitch. They won’t notice noise differences. They won’t notice slight dynamic range differences. Learn how to make better photos, spend less time comparing specs.

And that’s not to say Fujifilm APS-C sensors are inferior, not at all. They’re still amazing. I can’t tell that I’m on an APS-C camera versus a full-frame camera. The shortcomings just aren’t there. Oh and that reminds me, Sony builds Fujifilm’s sensors to Fuji’s specifications.

What’s really important in a camera

For me, my Fujifilm vs Sony debate came down to user experience.

  • Their retro-style controls and classic lenses are more photographer-friendly – I feel like I’m operating a camera, not a computer.
  • The additional bump in environmental protection is important when traveling.
  • The cameras “look older/cheaper” and help you blend in more (I’ve had numerous people say, “oh, film.”).
  • The entire system will keep my kit more portable, enabling me to go further & faster.

Am I saying that Fujifilm is better than Sony? No. Only better for me. Based on everything written above, will it be better for you? Maybe not. And that’s fine, Sony still makes a great camera.

As of this October 2019 update, I’ve been with Fujifilm for almost two years now, and have been loving it more and more every day.  I’m currently using the X-T2 as my primary body and the X-E3 as a secondary/backup.  And when I want to go completely covert, like on the street, I always have my X100F.

Some product links are affiliate links but all are where I make my gear purchases. You can also find all of my photography gear recommendations here.

I read a lot of camera reviews before I bought my first Canon but none of them really helped me figure out what camera I should get. Eventually, I went through Flickr and bookmarked a bunch of images I liked, looked through the EXIF data when available and found that about 75% of the photos I particularly liked were shot on a Canon. That’s how I picked my first camera.

There are a lot of sample images in reviews but I’ve always wanted to see comparison images between different cameras, not just sample images for a single body or a single lens. For years I assumed someone would do this sort camera comparison (and perhaps they have but I’ve never run across it). The curiosity of how different camera bodies shoot and the idea to compare them has been rolling around in my brain for years now. Originally, I thought about renting different cameras as a personal side project. I was trying to work out the logistics of this while commuting between shoots when I realized that I knew enough photographers with different gear that I could make this comparison happen with friends.

The Logisitics

I brought my 5d Mark IV Canon, Alina brought her Nikon D850, Sonja brought her Fujifilm XT-3 and Kristen brought her Sony A7RIII. We all met at The Robey Hotel, which kindly let us use their space for this and took comparison shots of food, a portrait (with Caitlin modeling) and the skyline.

To try and keep the shots as consistent as possible we each brought a 24-70 lens (though the Fuji has a cropped sensor so Sonja estimated at the 24mm equivalent) and I brought a tripod. I set up each shot and then shared my settings with everyone else. I made small edits to the images but they’re edited almost identically.

CANON EOS RP vs FUJI X-T3: Which should you get?

A Comparison of Canon and Fujifilm Colors

When it comes to camera brands most appreciated by photographers for their colors, Fujifilm and Canon generally get top nods. Which of those two do you prefer? Try out this blind comparison test to see if your preference is really as strong as you think! 

Coming to you from Denae & Andrew, this excellent video will give you a blind comparison test of the colors from a Canon EOS RP and a Fujifilm X-T3, using both raw and JPEG output. Fujifilm is well known for its colors, particularly its much beloved film simulations, and many photographers love their cameras simply for the amount of work they save them in post by outputting files that look great from the get-go. On the other hand, while Canon does not have quite the fanatical following Fuji does for its color, it is generally quite respected as producing some of the best and most natural colors directly out of camera, particularly when it comes to skin tones. If you are a photographer for whom natural colors are important, this is a great chance to find out which brand you truly prefer without any bias creeping in. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

Best cameras under $1000 in 2021

Fujifilm X-T30

26MP X-Trans BSI-CMOS sensor | Hybrid AF system | 4K/30p video capture

What we like:

  • Excellent image and 4K video quality
  • 20 fps burst shooting with AF
  • Support for F-Log and 10-bit output

What we don't:

  • Placement of joystick and Q.Menu button isn't ideal
  • 4K recording limited to 10 mins
  • Face detection can be unreliable

The Fujifilm X-T30 is a midrange mirrorless camera that has a 26MP BSI-CMOS sensor that uses the company's exclusive X-Trans color filter. Many of the X-T30's top features are borrowed from the more expensive X-T3, including its hybrid AF system and video controls, and that's a good thing.

The X-T30 is very well-built for its price. Its dedicated dials help you feel connected with the camera, but the placement of the Q.Menu button and joystick aren't ideal. The tilting touchscreen is reasonably responsive, and custom functions can be assigned to directional 'swipes'. The EVF is high-res but on the small side.

While it has its flaws - mostly in terms of ergonomics - the X-T30 is an excellent value for the money

The autofocus system is responsive and subject tracking is good (after some setting adjustment), though its face detection is just fair. Capture bursts extend up to 20 fps with continuous autofocus, and even faster with a 1.25x crop, though the camera buffer isn't terribly deep. Battery life is pretty reasonable for such a small camera.

Image quality is one of the X-T30's strongest assets. JPEGs look great right out of the camera, Fujifilm's Film Simulations are lots of fun and its Raw files are quite malleable, allowing one to brighten shadows without a significant increase in noise.

The X-T30 also captures top-notch Cinema and UHD 4K video. There's no crop, minimal rolling shutter, plenty of control and 10-bit Log output to an external recorder. Weak points include a 10 minute limit on 4K and subject tracking limited to faces. There's a 2.5mm input for an external mic and the USB-C socket can be used for headphones.

While it has its flaws - mostly in terms of ergonomics - the X-T30 is an excellent value for the money. Its image and video quality, direct controls and responsive performance make it one of the best midrange mirrorless cameras on the market.

Canon 90Dvs Fujifilm X-T30 Comparison

Canon 90D vs Fujifilm X-T30 Comparison Overview

Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 90D, which was introduced in August 2019 is a Advanced DSLR camera with a 33.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Fujifilm X-T30, which was introduced in February 2019 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 26.0MP APS-C sensor. There is only 6 months difference between 90D and X-T30 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.

Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting.

Canon 90D vs Fujifilm X-T30: Physical Specs and Body features Comparison

Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs. In this section, We are going to illustrate Canon 90D and Fujifilm X-T30 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon 90D has external dimensions of and weighs (including batteries). Fujifilm X-T30 has external dimensions of and weighs (including batteries).

Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon 90D and Fujifilm X-T30. Fujifilm X-T30 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 23mm narrower, 22mm shorter and 30mm thinner than Canon 90D.

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day. Fujifilm X-T30 is significantly lighter (318g ) than the Canon 90D which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.

Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you have to also take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since both Canon 90D and Fujifilm X-T30 have the same APS-C sized sensor, their lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will be similar in size and weight.

Canon 90D has a 33.0MP APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm ) sized CMOS sensor and features DIGIC 8 processor. On the other hand, Fujifilm X-T30 has a 26.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized BSI-CMOS sensor and features X-Processor 4 processor.

Canon 90D's sensor provides 7MP more than Fujifilm X-T30's sensor, which gives a significant advantage in real life. You can print your images larger or crop more freely. On the other hand, please keep in mind that Max sensor resolution is not the only determinant of resolving power. Factors such as the optical elements, low pass filter, pixel size and sensor technology also affects the final resolution of the captured image.

One other difference between these two cameras that is worth mentioning is that Fujifilm X-T30's sensor doesn't have an anti-alias (Low-Pass) filter. Removing anti-alias filter increases the sharpness and level of detail but at the same time, it increases the chance of moire occurring in certain scenes.

Below you can see the 90D and X-T30 sensor size comparison.

Canon 90D vs Fujifilm X-T30 Sensor Size Comparison

As seen above, Fujifilm X-T30 has a 1.1x Larger sensor area than Canon 90D. Larger sensors give photographer more control on the depth of field and blurry background compared to smaller sensor when shot in same focal length and aperture.

Canon 90D vs Fujifilm X-T30 Comparison of Available Lenses

Which camera has more lenses?

Number of available lenses is a big decision factor while choosing your interchangeable lens camera. When we look at the available lenses for these two cameras, we see that Canon 90D has an advantage over Fujifilm X-T30. There are 326 lenses for Canon 90D's Canon EF/EF-S mount, on the other hand there are only 62 lenses for Fujifilm X-T30's Fujifilm X lens mount.

How to pick the right mirrorless camera in 2021

Things move fast in the camera world these days, as manufacturers push for new innovations to keep their lineups relevant in the age of smartphones. Since our last guide, new models from Canon, Sony and others have arrived with big improvements in shooting speeds, autofocus and video. That’s good news if you’re a buyer, because the latest cameras are better than ever and it’s easier to find deals on past models.

Still, it can be hard to keep track of every new camera that comes along, and that’s where we come in. Our 2021 guide will catch you up on all the latest models and bargains, so you can select a camera that fits your shooting needs and budget to a tee.

What to look for in a mirrorless camera

To learn more about mirrorless tech and why it’s taken over the camera world, take a look at last year’s camera guide for an explanation, or check out our Upscaled video on the subject for an even deeper dive.

Now, let’s talk about what to look for in a mirrorless camera. The most important factor is the sensor size. The largest is medium-format, used on relatively niche and expensive cameras from Fujifilm, Hasselblad and Leica models. Models like Fujifilm’s latest 102-megapixel GFX 100S offer the largest sensors, very high resolution, top-notch image quality and the shallowest depth of field possible. However, they’re also very expensive, with Fujifilm’s entry-level GFX 50R starting at $4,500.

The next category is full-frame, with models available from brands including Sony, Nikon, Canon and Panasonic. That format offers the next-best image quality, low-light capability and depth of field, but costs considerably less, with prices starting at around $1,000. You’ll still get beautiful blurred background bokeh, but focus can be very fine for fast lenses, so your subject's eyelashes may be sharp, but not their eyes.

Fujifilm X-T4 APS-C sensor

Steve Dent/Engadget

Moving down a notch, APS-C is offered on Fujifilm, Sony, Nikon and Canon models. Cameras and lenses are cheaper than full-frame, but you still get lovely bokeh, decent low-light shooting capability and relatively high resolution. With a sensor size equivalent to 35mm movie film, it's ideal for shooting video.

Micro Four Thirds, used by Panasonic and Olympus, is the smallest mainstream sensor size for mirrorless cameras. It offers less dramatic bokeh and light-gathering capability than APS-C, but allows for smaller and lighter cameras and lenses. For video, it’s harder to blur the background to isolate your subject, but focus is easier to control.

Also key to your buying decision is resolution. High-res cameras like Sony’s 61-megapixel A7R IV deliver detailed images but the small pixels mean they’re not ideal for video or low-light shooting. Lower-resolution models like Panasonic’s 10.3-megapixel GH5s excel at video and high-ISO shooting, but lack detail for photos.

Image quality is subjective, but different cameras do produce slightly different results. Some photographers prefer the skin tones from Canon while others like Fujifilm’s colors, for example. It’s best to check sample photos to see which model best suits your style.

Nikon Z7 II Engadget camera guide

Steve Dent/Engadget

What about handling? The Fujifilm X-T4 has lots of manual dials to access shooting controls, while Sony’s A6600 relies more on menus. The choice often depends on personal preferences, but manual dials and buttons do make it easier to shoot. For heavy lenses, you may need a camera with a big chunky grip like Nikon’s Z6 II or Z7 II models

Video is more important than ever. Most cameras deliver at least 4K at 30 frames per second, but some models now offer 4K at up to 120p, with 6K and even 8K resolution. If you need professional-looking results, choose a camera with 10-bit or even RAW capability, along with log profiles to maximize dynamic range.

In-body stabilization, which keeps the camera steady even if you move, is another important option for video and low-light photography. You’ll also want to consider the electronic viewfinder (EVF) specs. High resolutions and refresh rates make judging shots easier, particularly in sunny environments.

Other important features include displays that flip up or around for vlogging or selfie shots, along with things like battery life, the number and type of memory card slots, the ports and wireless connectivity. Lens selection is also key, as some brands like Canon’s APS-C M-series have a limited choice compared to its full-frame RF-mount models.

Engadget's top picks

Now that you know what to look for, let’s jump into our top camera picks for 2021. We’ve divided the selection into four categories: under $750, under $1,500, under $2,500 and over $2,500. We chose those price points because many recent cameras slot neatly into those categories. Manufacturers have largely abandoned the low end of the market, so there are very few mirrorless models under $500.

Under $750

Sony A6100 camera guide

Steve Dent/Engadget

At the top end of that scale is Sony’s Alpha A6100, one of my favorite APS-C cameras from 2020. For $750, it offers the best autofocus in its class for both video and photos, while delivering good low-light performance and sharp 4K video. It even offers a flip-up screen and microphone input for vloggers. The downsides are a lack of manual controls, bad rolling shutter and a low-resolution EVF.

How to pick the right mirrorless camera in 2021


Moving down a notch is Fujifilm’s $700 X-T200. With gyro-stabilized video, 30 fps 4K and a flip-out display, it’s ideal for vloggers and video shooters. It’s equally well-suited to photos, with a 24.2-megapixel sensor plus 8 fps shooting speeds with eye- and face-detect autofocus. What I like less are the relatively low battery life and lack of subject AF tracking.

Canon unveils the EOS M200 with 4K video and eye-detect AF


The best budget mirrorless camera is Canon’s EOS M200. For $550 including a 15-45mm kit lens, you get a 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor that delivers sharp shots with natural colors and skin tones. It also comes with a flip-up display and 4K 24p video, albeit with a significant crop. The biggest downsides are the lack of a viewfinder, limited lens selection and relatively slow burst shooting speeds.

Honorable mention in this category goes to $599 Canon’s M50 II, a mildly refreshed version of the M50 with features like a flip-out screen, tap-to-record and focus, plus 4K video with a 1.5x crop.

Under $1,500

Engadget Camera Guide Fujifilm X-T3

Steve Dent/Engadget

If you can spend up to $1,500, the selection widens considerably. Tops in that category is Fujifilm’s great-handling, $1,500 X-T3. The 26-megapixel sensor delivers excellent detail with pleasing skin tones and natural colors. It excels for video too, with 4K 60 fps 10-bit internal shooting, along with microphone and headphone inputs. Less good are the lack of built-in stabilization, slightly slow autofocus and a tilt-only display.

Buy Fujifilm X-T3 at Amazon - $1,499

Nikon Z5


For a budget full-frame model, Nikon’s $1,400 Z5 is my top pick. Its forte is the excellent 24-megapixel image quality with very good high ISO performance for low light shooting. It also comes with built-in stabilization for low-light shots or video smoothing. 4K video is available at up to 30 fps, though there’s a 1.7 times crop. Other downsides are the relatively slow burst speeds and bad rolling shutter, particularly for video.

Buy Nikon Z5 at Amazon - $1,399

Panasonic GH5


A better choice for video is Panasonic’s $1,400 Micro Four Thirds GH5. It’s one of the cheapest models with 10-bit, high data rate 4K 60p video. It also offers effective image stabilization, pro inputs, dual high-speed card slots and a flip-out screen. Negative points are the small Micro Four Thirds sensor and relatively low 20-megapixel photo resolution.

Several cameras are worthy of honorable mention in this category, including Canon’s EOS RP, one of the cheapest full-frame cameras at just $1,000. Other good options include the fast and pretty Olympus OM-D E-M5 III and Sony’s A6600, which offers very fast shooting speeds and the best autofocus in its class.

Under $2,500

Canon EOS R6

Steve Dent/Engadget

Now let’s look at what you can get for under $2,500, the current sweet spot for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The leader of that category is the $2,500, 20-megapixel, full-frame Canon EOS R6. It offers outstanding image quality with Canon’s natural skin tones, and the Dual Pixel autofocus is responsive and quick. It does video equally well, delivering 4K 60p 10-bit footage, a flip-out display, a full complement of ports and a class-leading 8 stops of shake reduction. The only real downside is overheating that affects video recording longer than about 30 minutes.

Buy Canon EOS R6 at B&H - $2,499

Panasonic Lumix S5

Steve Dent/Engadget

Video shooters should look at Panasonic’s $2,000 full-frame S5. You can shoot sharp 4K 30p video down-sampled from the full sensor width, or 4K 60p from an APS-C cropped size, all in 10-bit color. With a new update it even offers RAW 5.9K external output to an Atomos recorder. You get a flip-out screen for vlogging and five-axis in-body stabilization. Photo quality is also good thanks to the dual-gain 24-megapixel sensor. The main drawbacks are the wobble-prone contrast-detect autofocus, slow burst speeds and a mediocre EVF.

Buy Panasonic S5 at B&H - $1,999

Fujifilm X-T4

Steve Dent/Engadget

For considerably less, Fujifilm’s $1,700 X-T4 is the best APS-C camera you can buy. With a flip-out display and in-body stabilization, it fixes the two main issues with the X-T3. And it still offers fast shooting speeds, class-leading 4K video features and great handling. However, it’s a bit bulkier than the X-T3 and the autofocus is inferior to Canon and Sony’s offerings.

Honorable mentions in this category go to the $2,000 Nikon Z6 II, which offers excellent image quality, solid video specs and great handling. Also take a look at the $1,800 Canon EOS R, $1,800 Sony A7C and $2,000 Sony A7 III, which is still competitive after three years.

Buy Fujifilm X-T4 at Amazon - $1,699Buy Nikon Z6 II at B&H - $1,999

Over $2,500

Sony A1

Steve Dent/Engadget

Finally, here are the best cameras if the sky’s the limit in terms of pricing. At the apex is Sony’s 50-megapixel A1, a stunning camera with a stunning $6,500 price. It rules in performance, with 30 fps shooting speeds and equally quick autofocus that rarely misses a shot. It backs that up with 8K and 4K 120p video shooting, built-in stabilization and the fastest, highest-resolution EVF on the market. The only real drawbacks are the lack of a flip-out screen and, of course, that price.

Buy Sony A1 at B&H - $6,499

Canon EOS R5

Steve Dent/Engadget

The next best option is Canon’s $3,900, 45 megapixel EOS R5. For a lot less money, it nearly keeps pace with the A1, thanks to the 20 fps shooting speeds and lightning fast autofocus. It also offers 8K and 4K 120p video, while besting Sony with internal RAW recording and a flip-out display. The big drawback is overheating, as you can’t take 8K longer than 20 minutes and it takes a while before it cools down enough so that you can start shooting again.

Buy Canon EOS R5 at B&H - $3,899

Sony A7R IV

Steve Dent/Engadget

Tied for second and third, and considerably cheaper, are Sony’s A7S III and A7R IV. With a 61-megapixel sensor, the $3,500 A7R IV (heavily discounted right now) is the highest-resolution full-frame camera available, but can still shoot at an incredible 10 fps. It has equally fast and reliable autofocus, an incredibly sharp viewfinder and in-body stabilization. Video isn’t a strong point, but it can handle 4K shooting at up to 30 fps — albeit with some line skipping and bad rolling shutter.

Buy Sony A7S III at Adorama - $3,499Buy Sony A7R IV at B&H - $2,999

Sony A7S III

Steve Dent/Engadget

The 12-megapixel, $3,500 A7S III, meanwhile, is the best dedicated video camera, with outstanding 4K video quality at up to 120 fps, a flip-out display and category leading autofocus. It also offers 5-axis in-body stabilization, a relatively compact size and great handling. While the 12-megapixel sensor doesn’t deliver a lot of photo detail, it’s the best camera for low-light shooting, period.

Panasonic S1H mirrorless camera

Steve Dent/Engadget

Honorable mention goes to Panasonic’s $4,000 S1H, a Netflix-approved mirrorless camera that can handle 6K video and RAW shooting. And if max sensor size and resolution is paramount, Fujifilm’s $6,000, 102-megapixel medium format GFX 100S is the top dog.

You’re now caught up, but change is now the norm in the camera world. In fact, new models including Canon’s EOS R3 sports camera with 30 fps shooting speeds, the Nikon Z9 with 8K video and other models are set to debut later this year. We’ll have full coverage when they arrive, so stay glued to Engadget.com for the latest updates.
