The Fujifilm X100V is the latest of the X100 series and we've seen some big changes and modifications to the overall package. An upgraded lens, new sensor, a new button layout, a totally new look, and upgraded software tools, which all together really help this camera stand apart from the previous models. This is by far the most unique update to date, but is it worth it?
I get this question a lot so I thought I would just throw it into a blog post. Surprisingly a lot of the people that are asking me are always considering either the X-T3 or the Z6. But Canon has a lot of potentials and Sony should still be considered a strong choice. As someone that has all the systems and shoots with them each regularly, I’ll tell you what I know and hopefully, some of this will apply to your situation. This is really hard, but I'll do my best to be as honest as possible.
The Sigma FP is a really cool concept that has a lot of potentials, and I'm excited to see where they take it, but it's just still got a long way to go. Lockups, bugs, crazy exposure, terrible display, terrible touch screen interface, cumbersome UI, photos not showing up after taking shots. Here are my first impressions of the Sigma FP.
The Sony A6400 is a small lightweight APS-C camera designed for photographers and videographers looking to maximize versatility and image quality without compromising performance. Built like a tank, the A6400 is one of the best autofocusing cameras out there with some overall really nice specs. 11fps of continuous RAW shooting, 4k 100mbps video and a Tilting screen for selfies or vlogging. Because Sony omitted IBIS from the A6400, the camera ends up being lighter compared to the A6500 while having a battery that lasts about a full day.
I've read and watched most reviews of the Canon EOS R, and man, what an echo chamber. The online review game has gotten really lazy. If you didn't know any better, you would think the Canon EOS R is a complete failure and a disaster, especially when you compare it to a similarly priced Sony A7III. I've been shooting with the EOS R for a few weeks now dissecting its performance and capabilities so that I can share with you all the pros and cons of this camera and how it compares to my beloved Sony A7rIII. In the meantime, here is what just about every camera review got wrong!
The Panasonic LX100 II is a pocketable compact 17 megapixel micro four thirds camera with a 24-75mm f1.7 to f2.8 variable zoom lens. It shoots 4k video at 100Mbps and features a toggle aspect ratio switch to change the area used on the sensor. The LX100 II sensor is a 21 megapixel micro four thirds sensor, but the camera only utilizes a maximum crop of 17 megapixels at any time to allow for different aspect ratios for different situations.
There has been a lot of discussion around the Fujifilm X-T2 vs the Fujifilm X-T3 regarding low light performance and dynamic range. For my tests, I waited for Adobe Lightroom to support the X-T3 since that is what most people use. I did not want to use some funky software to put out bogus results for the sake of being first to the scene. So here we are, tests from Adobe Camera Raw.
