Level up your photography skills and check out the best cameras out this year... and some classic ones thrown in for good measure.
With smartphones heating it up with their excellent cameras and new models popping up within months, it’s time cameras stepped up their game to be really, really good. From amateur photographers to seasoned pros, we have a model for every sort of user. Time to start shootin’!
Best compact camera for stills
The design is already a win for us, as it retains an old-school retro camera look. But aesthetics aside, the Fujifilm X100F also produces great quality photos and is a gem if you’re looking for a wide-angle manual-photography camera. A touch pricey, starting from $1,700 on Lazada, it’s important to consider that this might be an excellent all-round camera for travelling, family use and more.
Nikon D850 DSLR
Best DSLR camera for professional pics
At almost $5,000, it may be an expensive camera but if you’re looking for the best DSLR camera money can buy right now, then Nikon D850 DSLR pretty much ticks every box. Packing in a 45.4MP full-frame sensor, image quality is stunning. But that’s just half the story. Thanks to a cool new 153-point AF system and 9fps burst shooting speed, the D850 is just as good at around-the-house shooting action as it is when to comes to wildlife and landscapes and portraits.
Sony Alpha 6000 ILCE
Best affordable mirrorless camera
When it comes to mirrorless cameras, Sony’s the brand. Though the model is not a new one, it’s still the go-to mirrorless camera that is within the affordable range. If you’re an advanced photographer which is looking for something smaller (and cheaper) than a chunky DSLR, this is one to get. With features like the super fast continuous shooting, extensive features, and design that improves upon its predecessor’s already excellent one, it just makes it a better buy for the money.
Canon Rebel T7
Best entry level DSLR camera
The newly launched Canon Rebel T7 is an upgrade from the previous model, the T6. It still looks the same but image resolution on the T7 has jumped from 18MP in the T6 to 24.1 megapixels with the APS-C crop CMOS sensor. The camera can capture these 24MP photos with an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) and at a continuous shooting speed of 3 frames per second so you’ll always enjoy clean and sharp images – we’ve seen the photos and we’re mighty impressed.
The holy grail camera for stills and video
They say good things are timeless, no? That’s why we’re slotting this in. Known as one of the best compact cameras on the market, this super sleek, super cool camera shoots in 24MP APS-C sensor and also films 4K video. It produces sharp and quality photos with neutral colors. The cost might be a flinch point at $3,990 but one can dream…
