Nikon850 is the latest generation camera, a successor of the much-admired Nikon810. Nikon850 comes with 7-9 FPS continuous shooting speed, an impressive electronic front curtain shutter, and silent photography mode in live view. It has a powerful, and intensive dedicated AF engine with a multi-cam 20k AF sensor system. Not only that but it’s cinematically gorgeous as it is ultra HD 4K maximum movie resolution at 24, 25 and up to 30fps. Only 915g weight, a bit more than 810 but the difference is trivial, in any case, button illumination and Tilting LCD compensates for it and almost two times the LCD resolution clearly leaves 810 in the past.

NikonD5600 is a new addition to the 5000series family, directly replacing its former two-year-old model, NikonD5500 that is not in production anymore, Nikon D5600 model is sold for photography enthusiasts, who are starting, and want to buy their first DSLR, and obviously, other existing owners of entry-level Nikon DSLRs upgrading their used up, older models. One of the best additions to this newer model is definitely its SnapBridge technology that uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tech for wireless image-transfer duties between the camera and a connected smartphone or tablet. Its build, lightweight, and its polycarbonate shell are vigorous enough to sustain most minor blows. Overall, it’s good for starting photography, its affordable and offers a valuable experience.

The X100F is the fourth iteration, and by far – we feel the best in the series, aesthetically appealing due to its small, compact body, and truly appreciable design by its large sensor – it is an extremely fast camera with very high pixel counts, X100F is everything we hoped and desired it to be, from it’s ergonomically designed body, to its powerful performance, revised menus, iso control via dial, customizable focus ring and high voltage battery, hybrid/electronic viewfinder makes it worth every penny.

It’s robust video, and usage it meets the requirements and expectations of the buyers very well, and its value attracts anyone who is seriously considering shooting a cinematic experience

The Canon EOS 200D can be considered a huge level up from its predecessor, the 100D with its greater lens support and potential coupled with matching functionality with a very usable tilt-angle touchscreen. It’s kind of the perfect DSLR to get into as a beginner with a whole raft of EF lenses to grow into along with the strong footing that’ll definitely help a rookie pave their way into the world of media. It’s not a camera for you if you’re already an expert and looking for something more up to your level. But that doesn’t give it any reason to lag behind packing quite a punch with its excellent image quality, one that is able to match cameras two or three times its price.

The Panasonic G80/G85 is a DSLR packed with features that manage to stack up against many of its rivals. It’s a mid-ranger that definitely doesn’t let it show going the extra mile it needs to travel with Panasonic’s unique 4K modes that let you extract stills from videos, refocus and hell, even adjust the field of depth. Most importantly, what this camera has to offer are features that bring you to a whole another level of DSLRs. Accompanying its excellent autofocus is the image stabilization system which is very effective whether you’re out there recording stills or movies.
Though the operating system isn’t the easiest to navigate through, the camera tends to shine through once you’ve gotten acquainted with the controls and gotten the hang of customizing peculiar options. And while many of its competitors manage to fall behind when in comparison with the high-quality 4K video, this device manages to break through with its excellent AF performance and complete control over how the camera can behave during.
Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
The Best Camera Under 250 Dollars
Sensor: BSI-CMOS sensor type 20 Megapixels effective pixels, 21 megapixels sensor photodetectors DIGIC 4+ Processor | Screen: 3″ Fixed Type Screen 922k dots | Continuous Shooting: 2.5fps | Connectivity: Wi-Fi + NFC pairing
- Intelligent Image Stabilizer
- Compact travel zoom
- Greater selection range, price, and color
- Landscapes, portraits, auto shots, record shots are ‘grainy’
- Flash needs to be manually raised
- Less automation
The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS is essentially almost exactly the same as its predecessor, the SX610 HS, with the biggest change being a longer zoom lens that’s ever so slightly faster in terms of maximum apertures at both ends of the range. It has a large front finger ridge and a more generously-sized rear thumb rest which help make it sit more securely in the hand. Build quality remains high, with premium plastics accented with tactile metal details.
In summary, the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS is a perfectly good example of what has become a dying breed, a situation not helped by the manufacturer’s decision to essentially abandon this sector of the market and chase bigger margins, rather than bigger volumes. Which is a shame, as despite not really been improved in the last couple of years, the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS remains a perfectly good camera that still wipes the floor with most smartphones in terms of image quality.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1
The Best Bridge Camera
Sensor: MOS sensor type 7 Megapixels effective pixels, 8 megapixels sensor photodetectors | Screen: 2.5″ Fixed Type Screen 207k dots | Continuous Shooting: 3fps | Connectivity: USB
- Manual controls (external f-stop/speed controls)
- LCD features (10X display for manual focus)
- The dust reduction system
- Great Image stabilization (MODE3)
- Dark viewfinder
- Less Wide angle sharpness
- Inconvenient size
The L1 features the same 7.5-megapixel ‘LiveMOS’ sensor used in the E-330 (which we now know is manufactured by Panasonic), this provides the camera with TTL live view capability in a similar manner to the E-330. The L1 is simply one of the most magnificent tools created by the digital imaging world. It’s beautiful in its design & very tactile & intuitive in practice. The images are brilliant, the kit lens is incredible, albeit rather large but in a very dignified way & well worth the weight. The ease of use, the usefulness of live view, live histogram and live WB give much more confident to photographers. It has very logical manual controls, focus, and aperture ring shutter speed dial, very useful flash even for indirect lighting. You won’t make a mistake purchasing it.
