The GH5 Mark II is well worth a look if you're looking for a well-built, lightweight mirrorless camera with outstanding handling, a fantastic range of video recording options, and reliable stills performance.

The GH5 was already a fantastic option, and these improvements only serve to increase its appeal. However, if you already own the original GH5, the GH5 Mark II could appear unnecessary since it is essentially unchanged save for a few small performance improvements and the addition of live streaming.

The Panasonic GH5 II is a fantastic camera for those wishing to make their first forays into "professional" video production. It quickly establishes itself as Panasonic's new go-to model for demanding content creators by maintaining all the first model's advantages while incorporating quality-of-life improvements like internal battery charging and wireless live streaming. This makes it one of the best YouTube cameras as well as one of the best video cameras.

Pick up its weather-sealed body, and you'll find a 27-point phase-detect autofocus system with a very wide sensitivity range, live view, and video capturing capabilities, as well as very quick performance when compared to competitors!

The GFX50S II is one of the most appealing options ever - Fujifilm is continuing its history of portability and affordability with its medium format cameras.

Even though 4K video isn't available on this model, you can still enjoy the benefits of a medium format sensor for a far lower price than in the past if speed and video aren't priorities for you.

Thanks to the superb sensor and supplementary Fujinon glass, the images from this camera have a remarkable level of detail and tone.

Additionally, you get stellar dynamic range, Fuji's well-known color rendering, and enhanced autofocus over the previous model of this camera.

The medium format resolution and incredible quality of the 80MP files make this camera ideal for capturing still objects.

The 50MP files are even more remarkable, giving you and your subject more freedom of movement and opening up the possibility of using this Olympus cam for anything from street photography to portraiture.

The in-body image stabilization, though, is maybe the most amazing of all. Olympus, which is already regarded as the pioneer in this field, collaborated with Epson to create a new gyroscope and algorithm that is over five times more effective at identifying camera shakes.

This provides the E-M1X with an astounding 7.5 shutter speed stops of image stabilization when used in Sync-IS mode with compatible lenses.

With its incredible 30 frames per second in Pro Capture mode with focus fixed on the first frame or 15 frames per second with continuous AF, the E-M5 Mark III surely checks all the boxes for action photography.

Olympus has crammed a lot of technology, as well as some ingenious and very useful long exposure and focus bracketing options, into a relatively tiny and reasonably priced camera body.

Don't let the size of this camera fool you: despite being a little larger than the tiniest entry-level mirrorless cameras, it offers such capabilities that even some enthusiast DSLRs don’t.

Although the 20MP sensor is numerically inferior to the majority of APS-C sensors, you probably won't notice much of a difference when shooting in the real world.

Everyone enjoys a good deal, and the Rebel T100 offers excellent value for the money. The Rebel T100 does include a good number of high-end camera functions, however, they are of a different caliber.

Although it won’t make it into our list of the best digital cameras for beginners, this decent camera is still a good choice for those looking to try a DSLR without spending a lot of money.

The EOS Rebel T100 can provide generally decent image quality, but it can also fall short on occasion. This digital camera's native ISO range is limited to 100-6400, and anyone using the JPEG format would detect noise at any stop beyond 1600.

The Rebel T100 excels in the area of battery life, however - on a single battery charge, you can get roughly 500 shots while some cameras that cost much more struggle to get even half that.

A lightweight, pocket-friendly entry-level mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z5 is small and compact. The Z5 is Nikon's most affordable mirrorless camera at the moment.

It features a Z-mount for the newest Z lenses and a 24.3-megapixel sensor for stills and a 4K UHD 30 frames per second video recording capability.

For a mirrorless camera on this budget, the Z5 performs superbly in everyday conditions. Its 24.3MP stills are more than sufficient for everyday shooting, and the camera produces the sharpest images when used with an appropriate Z-mount lens.

The Z 5's wireless connectivity, which includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as the ability to shoot to two card slots, is one of its primary advantages. When it comes to producing internet content, whether as a pastime or for a small business, the 4K UHD 30p video option does expand its uses.

The Fujifilm GFX 100S has more advantages than its predecessor thanks to a more compact body that doesn’t sacrifice sensor resolution or in-camera image stabilization.

In comparison to conventional medium format cameras, it is much more affordable and user-friendly for a wider range of applications.

The GFX100S is a capable camera that can take 100MP photos in bursts of up to 5fps with continuous autofocus. It is also a great movie camera: its internal recording in 4K/30p 10-bit 4:2:0 utilizing the entire sensor's width is super potent.

Apart from its enormous resolution, the GFX 100S's major selling points are its relatively tiny size and image stabilization, which allows you to shoot handheld at lengthy shutter speeds. The dynamic range of the camera is also nothing short of amazing.

The D850 appears to be the ideal all-purpose DSLR for professional photographers, but at this price, it may also be attractive to many aspirational amateurs.

It does have a few drawbacks, but overall its 4K full-frame video, continuous filming speed, and resolution are just astoundingly fantastic. The D850 can record and edit standard 4K footage as well as breathtaking 8K time-lapse movies with quiet interval timer shooting.

The autofocus is quick and responsive, despite the fact that the speed of acquisition depends on the lens you’re shooting with and its autofocus actuators. Generally,

The Nikon D850 has all the features, handling, and image quality. For a camera with this resolution, its ability to capture the smallest details is extraordinary, and its continuous shooting speed is astounding.
