WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DSLR AND MIRRORLESS CAMERAS FROM EACH BRAND?

Buying a camera today is tough! How do you choose which brand, and then once you got that figured out you find out that there are several models from each brand!!! How are you supposed to choose which camera you should buy?

HERE’S THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CAMERAS:

There are many good camera companies right now. And the competition between them all is good for the consumer. Just seeing what the features are between each camera brand is mind boggling, however, the features from the cheapest camera carry on to the most expensive, just that they are more intense with the more expensive. Let’s go over each major brand and see what we can learn:

CAN I TAKE GREAT PHOTOS WITH ANY MODEL OF CAMERA?

So many different choices in cameras now!

ASK THIS QUESTION BEFORE YOU START DECIDING WHICH CAMERA IS FOR YOU:

  • Can I get perfect photos with the cheapest model, as good as the expensive model?

ANSWER: YES !

Every camera made today will let you choose your own shutter speed, F-stop number, and ISO setting. That is the basics to taking great photos. If you understand how to use all those, then you will be fine.

So, why should I spend anymore for a camera?

Let’s look at one brand of camera and see what you get by going with more money:

NIKON:

Nikon has 16 DSLR cameras on their website. They range from: $499.00 (US dollars) to $6499.00 (US dollars).

Also, they have: 8 camera models that are listed as: Mirrorless cameras. They range from: $859.95 (US dollars) to $5499.95 (US dollars).

So that means they have 24 different models to choose from. The first thing you need to know is what the difference is between DSLR cameras and Mirrorless cameras. Then half your job is done. To learn about that go to: CLICK HERE

Then the next job is to decide how much money you have to spend on a camera. You have the price ranges here now. Realize also that the prices quoted here are Nikon’s suggested Retail price. The price you pay could be considerably less, depending on where you shop.

Learn how to do the different settings in your camera. The one nice thing is that you can set the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO in any of these cameras. As you go more money in a more expensive camera, you will get faster shutter speeds, higher ISO range, and the aperture won’t change because that’s a function of the lens. The other thing that would change is the ability to do video better and offers more features for the videographer. In some cases you may get more durability with the camera, as they can handle more rugged wear, and waterproofing. With the faster shutter speed, you also get improvements in the light meter, the motor drive, the autofocus will be better because they use a new higher technology in their focus now.

PANASONIC CAMERAS: THEIR STORY AND CAMERAS TODAY:

Panasonic cameras is a serious contender in the camera market. However, it seems that a lot of people don’t take a look at this outstanding camera, and give credit where credit is due.

Let’s take a look at how Panasonic got into the camera business:

Lumix is Panasonics brand of digital cameras, ranging from pocket point-and-shoot models to digital SLRs.

Compact digital cameras DMC-LC5[1] and DMC-F7[2] were the first products of the Lumix series, released in 2001.

Most Lumix cameras use differing releases of the Panasonic Venus Engine for digital image processing; the original version (2002) was followed by II (2004), Plus (2005), III (2006), IV (2008), HD, V (2009) and VI, HD II, FHD (2010).

Some Lumix models are branded with Leica lenses (e.g. Nocticron or Elmarit lenses), although Leica does not manufacture the lenses. Others are rebranded as Leica cameras with different cosmetic stylings.

Panasonic showed a prototype of a planned 3D Lumix camera in September 2011,[3] saying that it would have twin 4x zoom lenses with folding optics and optical image stabilization for both video and still images.[3]

Panasonic collaborated with Sigma and Leica to form the L-mount Alliance on 25 September 2018, and licence the L-mount system for their own lines of lenses and cameras.[4] in 2019 Panasonic announced the release of its new S-series line of mirrorless cameras.[5]

Despite shifting focus to full frame cameras, Panasonic continues to release and support micro four thirds (MFT) cameras.

The best Panasonic cameras fall into three categories. The company is perhaps best known for its compact mirrorless Lumix G cameras, which use the Micro Four Thirds mount and offer advanced 4K video features as well as regular stills photography. This range has just been boosted by the exciting new Lumix G100, which is pitched squarely at novice vloggers with some clever features and a very competitive price. 

Panasonic has also branched out into professional full frame mirrorless cameras with its Lumix S1 and Lumix S1R models, and its high-end Lumix S1H cinema camera, now joined by perhaps the best combination of features, value and performance yet – the Panasonic Lumix S5.

Panasonic cameras are amongst the best mirrorless cameras you can buy right now, but Panasonic also makes some of the best compact cameras too, including long-zoom travel cameras, bridge cameras and high-end compact cameras for enthusiasts.

Panasonic’s G-series cameras use Micro Four Thirds sensors slightly smaller than the APS-C sensors in rival mirrorless cameras, but they make up for this with smaller and more compact cameras and lenses, and with Panasonic’s speciality – 4K video features. Many of Panasonic’s cameras are designed to be equally good at video as stills photography and some, like the Lumix GH5S, are out and out video specialists. The G-series cameras use Micro Four Thirds lenses, which will also work on the best Olympus cameras too (and vice versa).

I like to find an actual video prepared by the manufacture that tells all about their product. Watch this so you can see what a great camera system this is:

Also, I love those videos that show a professional photographer, using this equipment. Check it out:

Panasonic Lumix cameras are definitely another camera choice for photographers, and especially for videographers.
