Top 3 Photography Cameras

When it comes to art/ creativity, there really isn't a right way to do anything. A person would prefer shooting images in color while another would prefer monochromatic images. Each of us has a preference when it comes to (creatively) expressing ourselves. In the words of Charles Mingus, “ Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity”.

On that note, here are top 3 cameras for photography.

 

Sony Alpha A7R III

Sony AR73

 

This camera clearly didn't come out to play. The A7R III is Sony’s newest addition. It is a mirror-less digital camera and an enhancement of Sony’s Alpha A7R II. The camera boasts of a 42MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor. It also includes a 10 fps continuous shooting rate which comes with an improved auto-focus that provides a wide frame coverage.

Other than that, the sensitivity range of the A7R III has an ISO of 100-32000, which can further be expanded to ISO 50-102400 to allow greater image clarity when shooting.  The camera also allows you to shoot while speeding up or slowing down on a shot.

It accommodates shooting in full HD which can be captured at up to 120fps, while there are ports for both a microphone and audio monitoring. In addition, it allows compatible TVs to play back 4K HDR footage.

Canon 5D Mark IV

Most photographers prefer using a Canon, and the Canon 5D Mark IV may be why. This camera has a 30.4 MP full-frame CMOS sensor to allow for versatile shooting. It also allows for up to 7.0 frames per second continuous shooting speed. The camera has a touch -screen LCD monitor with an ISO range 100-32000 expanding to 50-102400.

The Canon 5D Mark IV delivers high-resolution images with impeccable clarity that allows you to shoot a still picture as well as in motion.

Check this: The camera has a built-in Wi-Fi^ feature! Using the Wi-Fi which is through the free Canon Camera Connect app, and on a compatible iOS or Android device, one can shoot remotely and still be able to control the camera settings such as shutter speed and aperture.  All this can happen even if you don't take the camera out of its bag!

 

Nikon D850

This is the latest camera from Nikon. The Nikon D850 has however incorporated a 45.7 Megapixel Back-side Illuminated CMOS Sensor. The use of a backside illuminated (BSI) sensor means that the light collecting elements of the sensor are closer to the surface of the chip. This allows for the camera operator to achieve extraordinary image quality, enhanced light gathering efficiency and very rich color sharpness.

Other than that, the D850 becomes the first Nikon DSLR to capture 4K videos from the full width of its sensor. There's also an 'Attenuator' mode for the camera's audio capture. This rolls-off any loud noises to avoid unpleasant clicking sounds.

There's also an electronic vibration reduction system to reduce the unsteadiness of shooting when the camera is handheld. There also are ports for an external microphone and audio monitoring.

Are these three among your list of coveted cameras? Let us know in the comments section below.
