With the new cameras that were released in 2021 and 20, Canon has really changed its game. In the years before, the company was conservative in its camera releases. Now, Canon has pushed the envelope in new directions, with the Canon EOS R1, the Sony Alpha a7C, the Panasonic Lumix GH6, and the Nikon Z30. These new cameras represent the best in their class. But are they the right choice for your photography needs? Let’s look at the pros and cons of each.
Canon EOS R1
While we’re unsure of exactly when the new Canon EOS R1 camera will come out, we can expect the new full-frame mirrorless camera to hit stores in Q4 of 2022. Canon has been quiet about the future of its camera line, but the company has announced several other upcoming cameras and lenses. The latest rumors point to a new RF 800mm f/5.6L lens, and a super-telephoto lens, likely priced in the four-figure range.
We can’t wait for the next Canon EOS R1 camera to come out. Rumors are predicting that the company will announce the EOS R1 in 2022. The new camera is said to be the company’s first mirrorless flagship and will offer high-resolution imaging with lightning fast shooting speeds. It will be a perfect camera for wildlife photographers, sports photographers, and any professional looking for a high-quality camera.
While the R1 is aimed at still photographers, the R5 also offers impressive video specifications. The camera can record video at 4K 120p and 6K 60p, and the camera supports Cinema RAW Light. Video files are stored on the camera’s internal CFexpress Type-B card. The R1’s video specifications are impressive and make it an excellent choice for professional landscape and travel photography. The camera also has an integrated ND filter for better low-light photography.
Sony Alpha a7C
The Sony Alpha a7C is a high-end compact camera with an impressive range of features and capabilities. The camera boasts 4K/30p video capabilities and can record 1080p / 120p Full HD slow-motion movies. It also has a feature to take selfies. The new camera can shoot 680 images with its viewfinder and uses the same NP-FZ100 battery as the top Alphas. It can also be charged through the USB Type C port.
The Sony Alpha a7C is a very intelligent camera with a great feature set. The camera is ideal for everyday life photography and candid lifestyle photojournalism. It lacks a number of features for serious hobbyists, but it has great image quality and a solid autofocus system. Its lack of additional features and customization buttons are likely to be a deterrent to some. It also lacks a front command dial and an AF point control joystick.
A fully articulated screen and 4K video are other highlights. Although the camera is not intended for professional sports, it will offer an impressive amount of features for photographers who want to capture the action. It is capable of shooting at up to ten frames per second and has a decent buffer. The camera is also equipped with a microphone and headphone jack. While it has the same features as the Alpha a7C, it isn’t as advanced as its predecessors.
Panasonic Lumix GH6
The new Panasonic Lumix GH6 camera is the latest addition to Panasonic’s range of digital cameras. It boasts a high-resolution 25MP CMOS sensor without OLPF, as well as a 5-axis stabiliser. These features allow for smoother handheld video and longer exposures without a tripod. It also supports high-resolution multi-shot sampling mode, and has a silent electronic shutter.
The GH6 is rugged enough for heavy field use and has an impressive list of features. Its magnesium alloy full die-cast body is splash and dust-resistant, while its shutter unit is water and freeze-resistant down to -10° Celsius. It also features an optional USB PD charging cable and Time Code IN/OUT synchronisation. The camera is equipped with a button for exposure levelling, which automatically levels exposure between two adjacent frames.
The GH6 offers full-time autofocus and audio capture. It also has a high-resolution APS-C sensor. The GH6 has a dual-LED light, which helps with focusing. However, if you want to shoot in low-light conditions, you will have to use a tripod. You should also make sure that your lighting conditions are accurate before attempting to shoot.
A variety of recording modes and resolutions make the GH6 a great choice for both large and small video production. Further, Panasonic has announced that it plans to release a firmware update to add more high-end features to the GH6 camera, including in-camera recording for Apple ProRes. These features will allow you to record your videos in high-resolution, high-quality, and with ease.
The Nikon Z30 is a new mirrorless camera that uses a 20.9-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. It boasts a range of ISO settings from 51,200 for still photography and 25,600 for video. It should be able to deliver impressive image quality, and it includes plenty of useful autofocus features. It also has a high frame rate of 11 fps, and it is capable of shooting up to 4K video at 30p. While the camera doesn’t have an electronic viewfinder, it does have a battery life of 125 minutes when plugged into a computer.
The Nikon Z30 will cost about $710 for a body only, and EUR829 for a lens kit that comes with two zoom lenses – the 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and the 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR. It will also be available with a lens kit that includes the 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and the ML-L7 remote. The Nikon Z30 will be available to purchase in mid-July 2022.
The Nikon Z30 lacks a viewfinder and only has an LCD screen. It has a 1040K-dot resolution and a vari-angle design for easier one-handed operation. Its screen is not as high-definition as the Z50, but it is sufficient for still photography. Its dual-core processor is fast enough to cope with the demands of professional photographers. However, the lack of a viewfinder and joystick make it harder to use one-handed.
Olympus Pen E-P7
The Olympus Pen E-P7 will be a successor to the E-P5 released back in 2013. The company is moving its camera division to OM Digital Solutions, and the cameras have been pretty mediocre for a long time. Pocket-lint has been using an Olympus Pen F for five years, and we are very pleased with its performance and functionality.
The Olympus Pen E-P7 will have a 16.1-megapixel sensor. The top panel will be tiltable 180 degrees, and it will also support Olympus Image Share app. It will also have an auto focus feature. It will cost about $550. This camera is set to be released in 2022. It will feature a built-in memory card reader. It also has Wi-Fi.
The Olympus Pen E-P7 has an excellent low light sensitivity range. With its 20.3-megapixel sensor, you can capture 4K movies at 30p and full HD movies at 60 or 50p. The camera can also shoot high-speed VGA footage at 120fps. Despite its low-light capability, the PEN E-P7 has a high-quality LCD display.
The Pen E-P7 is a high-end camera for the price. It features state-of-the-art optical technology, and is packed with advanced photo modes. Advanced Photo mode features include Live Composite, HDR, Panorama, Keystone Compensation, and AE bracketing. The camera also has an app for easy smartphone connectivity. The Olympus Pen E-P7 will cost about $300.
The long-awaited successor to the X-H1 will soon be available as a new camera from Fujifilm. Designed for professional and hobbyist landscape photographers, the X-H2S will boast a stacked 26 Megapixel sensor and 40 Megapixel back-illuminated sensor. This camera will feature the company’s fifth-generation X-Trans sensor, and we should see more information about its features later this year.
The X-H2S is equipped with a new F-Log 2 gamma curve to give the camera an additional two stops of dynamic range. This new feature allows for a lower exposure for highlights. The X-H2S also features dual card slots – one CFexpress Type B and one UHS-II SD card slot. Compared to other cameras, the X-H2S is also compatible with Sony’s E-Mount.
While the X-H2 and X-H2S cameras have a lot of similarities, the new X-H2S is a substantial upgrade over the previous generation. Its 40MP sensor offers more flexibility and should provide greater confidence in difficult focus situations. It also offers massive expansions in video capabilities. With all of these features, the X-H2S camera should continue to grow in popularity.
The X-H2S has four customizable buttons on its top status panel. Besides the X-H2S’s AF joystick, it has dual memory card slots. The X-H2S supports CFexpressTM Type B memory cards and SD cards, and its high-speed data-processing performance makes it ideal for shooting in dark conditions. However, there are a few limitations.
