The do-everything choice: Fujifilm Ten-T3
The Ten-T3 does merely nearly everything very well. prototype quality is first-class, with a option of bonny ‘Pic Simulation’ color modes and detailed, flexible Raw files. Autofocus with well-nigh 10-series lenses is snappy with constructive focus tracking, eye-detection AF for portraits and zone focus modes that will accommodate to a range of sports. This is on top of a well-respected interface which blends traditional dials with a good degree of customization.
The X-T3 does all this while as well offer some of the best video we’ve encountered. It can shoot highly detailed 4K footage at up to 60p with the pick for 10-flake capture for maximum grading leeway. Useable (though not flawless) video AF makes it comparatively like shooting fish in a barrel to get skilful results, too. Only the lack of in-body stabilization counts against its go-everywhere, capture everything credentials.
Full-frame for stills shooters: Nikon Z5
The Nikon Z5 is an first-class value for those who desire the improved dynamic range (and image quality equally a whole) and additional command over depth of field of a full-frame photographic camera. The Z5 is a well-congenital mirrorless camera with a 24MP sensor and in-body image stabilization. It offers a high resolution EVF, a tilting touchscreen and dual SD card slots.
Image quality is excellent, with pleasing JPEG colors, wide dynamic range, and very good loftier ISO operation. The Z5 is not a neat choice for video shooters, however: it has a hefty ingather in 4K and rolling shutter can be an effect. If video’south not your thing, though, the Z5 is an first-class choice for entering the full-frame world on the cheap.
