The best new SLR cameras

First, let’s see what’s new in the photo industry 2019 in the category of full-fledged SLR cameras. This is the most Fresh news officially introduced by manufacturers therefore, it is still too early to judge the prices of some of them in Russia. We will talk about the fact of exit and about those characteristics that are officially known at the end of January 2020 of the year.

Nikon D780

Rating: 4.9

Nikon D780

The first to consider an interesting new product from Nikon – the mirror Nikon D780 camera, which is an actual extension D750 series with a large “admixture” of characteristics of the neighboring Nikon model Z6.

So, the D780 is a mid-range full-frame SLR camera level oriented both for amateurs and professionals. Built on the basis of CMOS-matrix with a resolution of 24 megapixels (effective) with backlight. Significantly improved autofocus in mode Live View by installing directly on the sensor matrix phase tracking. Autofocus is carried out at different points, including number on faces and eyes. For those who prefer guidance over optical viewfinder, the phase sensor itself – with 51 points and backed by algorithms borrowed from Nikon D5.

As for burst shooting, here it may not seem too much impressive – only 7 frames per second with autofocus. However, in mentioned Live View, the camera turns into mirrorless, and the frequency rises to 12 frames per second.

The possibilities for shooting video in the new product will be approximately match the same Nikon Z 6. So, write a video in 4K ultra-resolution is possible across the entire width of the matrix, but with fps not more than 30 frames per second. In FullHD, you can already shoot at a frequency frames up to 120 per second.

All the most requested add-ons like HDR support in “versions” of HLG, picking, zebra, N-Log 10 bits are present. What about saving video in RAW format, manufacturer modestly silent. NEF (RAW) photos can be taken without problems, including lossless or flexible combination of formats without compression and “optimal” JPEG compression.

The dimensions of the device without a lens are 143.5×115.5x76mm. The metal case is equipped with dust and moisture protection. Working range temperatures – from 0 to +40 degrees. Weight with battery and card memory – 840g. Battery – Li-ion EN-EL15b⁶, can be charged directly in the device via USB-C. To save data there are two slots for SD memory cards with support for increased UHS-II data rate class.

In general, experts take the liberty of claiming that Nikon The D780 took all the best from SLR and mirrorless cameras. However, the model has yet to pass at least some test of time, and this applies to all solutions presented in our review.

Advantages

  • full frame;
  • compact;
  • relatively light weight;
  • hybrid viewfinder;
  • advanced autofocus;
  • the optimal combination of mirror and mirrorless form factors.

disadvantages

  • does not save video in RAW format;
  • the temperature of the medium is only above zero.

Canon EOS 250D

Rating: 4.8

Canon EOS 250D

The second number in the selection of the latest DSLRs of the end of 2019 – the beginning 2020 consider the amateur model EOS 250D production Canon Market Leader. And although the degree of professionalism cameras do not always directly correlate with price, the cost of EOS 250D is really acceptable. It’s hard now to say who the first dubbed this model “the lightest DSLR in the world with rotary screen “, but this characteristic quickly took root, and she quite fair.

The past 2019 was the year of mirrorless dominance, but in Canon managed to release a DSLR model even after two mirrorless in a row. EOS 250D replaces the super popular EOS 200D, which has been a model of commercial success. New same the model combines some of the best features of the EOS 200D and another EOS M50 models.

Here we see the APS-C CMOS matrix with effective resolution. 24MP and embedded Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. Crop factor – 1.6. An optical viewfinder is provided. Photo shooting speed – up to 5 frames per second.

From EOS M50 in this model borrowed the ability to shoot 4K ultra-high definition video with limited frequency frames – up to 25 per second with a bit rate of 120 Mbps. And it is not the only limitation. When shooting in 4K, Dual will not work Pixel CMOS AF, and the matrix will not be available all, but only the middle with crop 2.64x. But in FullHD there are no restrictions usable area of ​​the matrix, nor on the use of Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

The set of interfaces here is pretty good – USB2.0, HDMI, input microphones, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless modules, NFC tag. there is remote control.

Now back to where we started. Really, the camera is one of the lightest – it weighs only 449g with battery. Dimensions without a lens – 122x93x70mm. LCD screen swivel, touch, 3 inches diagonal. Used bayonet mount – Canon EF. Estimated battery capacity (own form factor) approximately corresponds to 1070 photographs.

The camera body is made in a classic style, three are available color options – black, silver, white. But the most affordable – the first. The other two on sale may not be so easy to find. This model is supplied both with the lens and separately “carcass”.

Advantages

  • minimum weight;
  • rotary screen;
  • 24MP pixel;
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology;
  • wireless modules;
  • NFC
  • affordable price.

disadvantages

  • sprinkles 4K video;
  • many outbreaks of previous generations are not like.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

Rating: 4.7

CANON EOS-1D X MARK III

Complete the selection of the best new SLR cameras by versions the latest and hottest new from Canon. This is one of the most of the expected models, announced in the fall of last 2019 – top reporting SLR EOS-1D X Mark III.

Here it is worth immediately indicating certain boundaries of the possible. it professional model that the development company itself unequivocally positioned as potentially “Olympic” along with with flagships of other manufacturers designed specifically for games in Tokyo. Therefore, at the beginning of 2020 for the EOS-1D X Mark III will have to pay a little less than half a million rubles (for comparison – Mark II is almost exactly two times cheaper). But as for “Olympic” flagship, there is no special price alternative.

The CMOS matrix of this model is 36x24mm and with an effective 20.1 million pixels. In this regard, the camera is not far left its direct predecessor EOS-1D X Mark II. However, this helped to preserve and even increase the capabilities of the camera in part shooting in low light conditions and that moment Canon marketers diligently emphasize.

Close attention is paid to speed and autofocus. Phase tracking sensor covers conditional field of view completely in height and 90% of the width with the formation of 525 zones tracking. For aiming through the optical viewfinder here installed advanced autofocus with a sensor that, according to official data, almost three orders of magnitude higher resolution by center than Mark II.

Serial shooting is quite up to standard here. Using optical viewfinder speed will be up to 16 frames per second, and in Live View mode – up to 20 frames per second. Of course, before each the frame focuses and metering.

In addition to JPEG and RAW formats, this model can record images in 10-bit HEIF format, which provides extended dynamic range. Video shooting options too pleasing. You can write ultra-high-quality video directly to the memory card 4K resolution, and even with a frequency of 60 frames per second. But this is not limit – the device can also write 10-bit 4: 2: 2 Canon Log on that same memory card. By the way, about cards – in EOS-1D X Mark III you can Use two CFexpress formats.

The self-contained lithium-ion battery provides more than two hours of continuous shooting in 4K.

Advantages

  • high quality with a lack of lighting;
  • recording photos in the expanded HEIF format;
  • 4K video recording at 60fps;
  • autonomy;
  • In general, a powerful top-end reporting DSLR.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • far from a record matrix resolution for such a price.

Best New Mirrorless Cameras

The second selection in the review of the best new cameras according to the version journal is more extensive than the first, and this is because the whole past In 2019, the market was replenished mainly with bright mirrorless ones. It looks like the top global manufacturers, no matter how clung to the mirror classics, all the same, sooner or later they should will change the worldview. Otherwise, half-seriously, half-seriously, they say observers following the Olympic Games after Tokyo photojournalists will shoot on smartphones.

Nikon Z6

Rating: 4.9

Nikon Z6

First of all, consider a camera that has already been featured in review when we took apart the Nikon D780. These two models came out with small time interval. Nikon Z6, even against the background of the present parade mirrorless from other manufacturers managed to get nomination “Camera of the Year” according to the EISA association.

First, we’ll deal with key technical specifications. apparatus. Here we see a full-sized CMOS matrix with resolution up to 24.5 Mpix capable of forming an image with maximum 6048×4024 resolution, color depth up to 42bit and function self-cleaning.

The viewfinder of this model is electronic, large and very informative. You can also use the LCD screen for guidance 3.2 inches in size. The screen is touch and swivel. Number of pixels viewfinder – 3.69 million, the screen – 2.1 million. Hybrid Auto Focus Provides up to 273 focus points. Autofocus has a function face and eye recognition, and it works fine with accurate guidance. Focus can be adjusted manually.

Burst shooting provides speed up to 12 frames per give me a sec. There is a timer for 2, 5, 10 and 20 seconds, as well as a mode Time-lapse. Two-factor image stabilization – optical and by shifting the matrix itself. The footage the device can save in JPEG (two compression ratios), TIFF, RAW, and dual mode TIFF + JPEG.

In terms of shooting video, this model does not break records, but necessary level provides. So, the device can shoot in resolution FullHD 1920×1080 up to 120fps, and in UHD 4K resolution 1920×1080 the frequency will drop to 25-30fps. The size of the video file is limited in volume – 4GB or by shooting time – 29 minutes.

For comprehensive communication, the Nikon Z6 provides HDMI interfaces USB3.0 with charging support; microphone input; headset output; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless modules. Estimated autonomy corresponds to approximately 310 captured photo, and this is the weakest point of this model. Second big minus – The device is “imprisoned” for the insanely expensive XQD memory cards.

In February 2020, the “carcass” Nikon Z6 is in Russia about 110 thousand rubles. Kit with a whale lens – almost 150 thousand. rubles.

Advantages

  • full-size matrix;
  • large and informative viewfinder;
  • two-factor stabilization when taking pictures.
  • shooting video in 4K;
  • wireless modules;

Fujifilm X-T3

Rating: 4.8

FUJIFILM X-T3

The second number in the selection of the most interesting novelties of mirrorless cameras, consider the new X-T3 manufactured by Fujifilm. Here the company has made notable success in terms of photo and videos for devices of a more or less affordable price category. So noticeable that the X-T3 was praised by the European audio and video technology media associations (EISA).

X-T3 received from developers X-Trans CMOS4 matrix resolution 26 megapixels and a crop factor of 1.5, capable of taking pictures with the maximum Resolution 6240×4160. The color depth is 42 bits. This is the first model. APS-C format, equipped with backlight and phase-sensitive elements throughout the frame. There is no low pass filter, thanks to which the highest as possible in in this context, image detail. X-Trans Color Filter successfully suppresses moire and parasitic staining.

4-core chip performs digital image processing X-Processor 4. The increased processor power allows the X-T3 to a half times faster than the X-T2, aim autofocus and produce metering exposure. This is especially important with serial shooting, which X-T3 can carry out at a speed of 11 frames / s. And this is with mechanical shutter, and when using the electronic shutter the speed increases to 20 frames per second, and without blackouts, but, however, the frame drops to 1.25.

This model does not have any problems in terms of shooting video in Ultra-high resolution 4K with a frame rate of 60fps. But need Be prepared for a recording time limit of 30 minutes. it unpleasant moment, but it is a given. Also with long shots with noticeable heat will be felt with maximum quality.

The X-T3 has significantly improved autofocus, and literally for all directions. 2.16 million phase-sensitive pixels cover the entire frame area, and phase tracking works correctly when a two-point reduction in lighting level compared to previous generations of cameras in this line. That is, X-T3 can accurately focus autofocus literally in the twilight.

Definitely pleases the viewfinder. He is here digital, diagonal 0.5 inches with a resolution of 3.69 million pixels and even has its own small magnification factor – 0.75x. Update frequency pictures in the viewfinder – 100 times per second. Display Delay – 5ms The screen itself is made by the most advanced to date OLED technology. There is a diopter adjustment with a latch.

disadvantages

  • users do not like the video recording time limit 30 minutes
  • weak battery.

Fujifilm GFX100

Rating: 4.7

Fujifilm GFX100

The third number in this part of the rating will consider another new from Fujifilm, and it will be a real storehouse of innovation and the embodiment of technological progress. Even compared to quite an advanced previous model, the GFX100 is far ahead. What can I say, even if EISA recognized this model as “the best among the innovative. “Our experts included it in a review more for the general development and broadening of the horizons of our readers, since very few can afford it yet. Its price is perfect beyond.

This is the first camera on the market with a sensor larger than 35mm, which Equipped with phase tracking pixels and backlight. Actually, the dimensions of the matrix are 43.8×32.9mm. Huge resolution in 102MPix allows you to take pictures with your own resolution up to unthinkable 11648×8736 points.

The camera is equipped with a 3.2-inch electronic viewfinder diagonals, with a 100% field of view and a resolution of 5.76 million pixels. The image is also displayed on the rear swivel LCD screen.

The GFX100 has significantly improved the already almost flawless autofocus that previous generations of Fujifilm cameras have been famous for GFX series. Tracking autofocus received additional settings, contributing to particularly accurate tracking of even the fastest objects. 3.76 million phase-sensitive pixels cover almost 100% the entire matrix. A total of 425 points can be used nominally focusing.

Despite the prohibitive megapixel, the GFX100 delivers less noises than the previous generation of the series, not least thanks to backlighting. Also here we see a wider dynamic range and increased read speed of the signal. Powerful X-Processor 4 processor combined with an innovative matrix allow the camera to record 16-bit RAW files without problems images and videos of previously unthinkable quality and resolution.

“Control shot” of developers towards the skeptical Comments Sounded After Announcement – Integrated System image stabilization at the matrix level (IBIS). Implied 5-axis stabilization up to 5.5 stops. The shutter mechanism “swinging” on four springs to minimize vibrations.

For all its incredible performance, the GFX100 is not strong in parts of the video. So, the device can shoot in 4K resolution 3840×2160, but with a frame rate of not more than 30fps.

Advantages

  • large matrix with huge resolution;
  • extremely accurate focusing;
  • advanced autofocus;
  • powerful processor;
  • 16 bit RAW recording;
  • rich equipment.

disadvantages

  • no more than 30fps when shooting video in 4K;
  • exorbitant price.

Canon EOS Ra

Rating: 4.7

CANON EOS RA

This and the next model in the ranking of the best new cameras according to the version – not just new items, but something special. Now we consider the Canon EOS Ra, which was released recently – in November 2019 and was the continuation of the R series. Model specific in a good way and even surprising in its destination – for astrophotography and diverse shooting the night sky.

To be precise, EOS Ra is not much different from EOS R, released in 2018. But these differences served as an adequate response. Canon at the request of astrophotographers. So the devices, though almost identical, but this “almost” makes a dramatic difference.

The key technical points of these two modifications coincide. EOS Ra received exactly the same matrix with a resolution of 30.3MP, similar focusing system and identical processor for digital image processing.

The sensor filter has undergone some changes. The difference is very thin, but for astrophotography it is the most important – the device can fix 400% more radiation of the H-alpha line. In practice, this means that red nebulae appear in the image. Ordinary even expensive and powerful cameras lack such “superpower” as unnecessary. The thing is that nebulae are composed of mainly from helium and hydrogen, and only “glow” in infrared the range that ruthlessly cuts off any other filter cameras.

Also, at slow shutter speeds, camera immobility and the exclusion of even microscopic vibrations, otherwise there will be problems with sharpness. Here, the mirrorless form factor itself contributes to this. The mechanism of raising the mirror, capable of causing critical vibration, missing here by definition.

EOS Ra also added auxiliary functions when working in paired with a telescope. These are primarily options that promote everything. the same focus, including even the focus area illumination. Whether it is necessary to say that the increase here simply could not be refined. Indeed, the EOS Ra tripled more than that of a “sibling” – 30 times.

Finally, an important detail. The device is capable of shooting video in 4K resolution and output a 10-bit signal through the video interface HDMI

Advantages

  • full frame;
  • the filter captures infrared radiation;
  • 30x magnification;
  • advanced sharpening functions;
  • high resolution matrix;
  • shooting video in 4K and outputting a 10-bit stream via HDMI.

disadvantages

  • systematic complaints from users have not yet was observed.

Leica M10 Monochrom

Rating: 4.7

LEICA M10 MONOCHROM

And completes a large selection of the best new products in the segment mirrorless cameras are already quite something special. it the legendary Lake, and not simple, but monochrome, as simple guess from the name. The camera is insanely expensive, but still not breaks the review record set by the above Fujifilm model GFX100. But the price here is even more justified than in the case of the GFX100, since the M10 Monochrom is designed for real photo artists “elite league”.

This is the third generation of the full-frame Leica mirrorless mirror, designed for high quality black and white shooting. Experts in unison say that the M10 Monochrom displays monochrome photography to a new, previously unthinkable level, and it’s hard not to to agree. Indeed, the installed resolution matrix 40MPix is ​​not in any way printed, but was specially developed for this model of camera taking into account all future nuances configuration and power electronics. High sensitivity matrices in combination with resolution allow you to get completely unprecedented detail transfer at virtually any level lighting.

Leica M10 Monochrom is also a pioneer in a number of ways. So, for example, this is the first “rangefinder” with an ISO range of 160 to 100 000. When developing a matrix, its resource was originally inherent ability to achieve higher ISO values ​​at more low base ISO compared to previous monochrome Leica.

This device has a huge creative component, even in small nuances. So, the shutter here is the quietest of all series, it’s literally “whispers” and allows you to shoot as quietly as possible and not give out your presence. Classic conspicuous red there is no logo on the facade, but the camera’s appearance is minimalistic and completely plain without contrasting elements. Finally, M10 Monochrom is compatible with all M-lenses, thereby maximizing field for creative expression.

As for quality, the brand itself says a lot here. If this few, you can add that the Leica M10 Monochrom is harvested manually on high-tech manufacturing in Germany, and not just good workers, and highly qualified specialists with impeccable reputation and great experience.

Advantages

  • premium class;
  • illustrious brand;
  • manual assembly;
  • impeccable quality;
  • 40 million monochrome pixels in the matrix;
  • full size;
  • compatible with all M lenses.

disadvantages

  • “barrage” price.

The best new compact cameras

The third and final selection of a review of the best new products cameras according to the version includes the most conspicuous decisions of 2019 and early 2020 in the compact camera segment. This is true called “soap dishes”, but in this context, this wording is not quite correct, since the term “soap box” has long adhered to him a flair of cheapness and limitation. And actually compact cameras can be multifunctional in form factor, and very expensive.

Olympus TG-6

Rating: 4.9

OLYMPUS TG-6

Opens the final category unique in our review Olympus brand model. This is a continuation of the famous series, which is great for holidays, including active.

The first thing that immediately hints that the camera is aimed at operation in field conditions and in a variety of environments – this availability of reliable protection against water, dust and exposure to negative temperatures. Indeed, the camera can be used even under water, and interestingly, it provides a separate mode for underwater macro photography!

Compared to the previous, fifth generation of the Olympus TG series, “six” got an improved microscope mode and distance minimized to 1 cm. Macro mode has all the necessary and useful add-ons like bracketing and focus stacking. The above mode underwater macro shot got new preset settings white balance, optimized for different depths.

The display has undergone changes for the better. Basically they touched permission – now it is 1.04 million pixels. Also, the device has new accessories, among which is highly desired and expected by customers fishey nozzle FCON-T02.

Now let’s go through the express inspection of all the most important characteristics of the device is already regardless of its relationship with fifth-generation forerunner.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII

The second number in the selection of the best new products among compact cameras consider the product of a company that we could not completely ignore in our review. It’s about Sony Corporation and seventh generation of the RX100 series. The previous version, RX100 VI, was awarded the title of “Best Compact Camera” in the annual ranking EISA associations. The Seven retained all the advantages, seriously adding on the part of improvements.

Like the previous version, the RX100 VII is aimed mainly at video bloggers. Initially, the Sony RX100 series itself was created in as a compact assistant to a professional photographer on different occasions. But as the model goes model by model developers began to pay more and more attention video capabilities. RX100 VII in this regard withstands optimal balance.

This model got the exact same lens as the six 24-200 mm equiv. with aperture f / 2.8-4.5. However, the matrix itself is still changed to a newer one, with a resolution of 20MP and a format of 1 ”. Difference more phase-detection AF points. There are 357 total points here. Of particular interest is the function real-time tracking how camera models can Sony is a different class – A9 and A6400. Autofocus is provided not only with guidance on the eyes of people, but also on the eyes of animals. At all, company representatives insistently say that the RX100 VII embodied many of the ideas and technologies borrowed from the top Sony A9.

A separate significant plus – serial shooting at speeds up to 20 cad / s, and without viewfinder blackouts. Maximum The principal shooting speed is 90 cad / s. True, there is serious limitations – focus and exposure lock and lack pre-buffering. This mode is suitable for extremely responsible situations.

This model is capable of shooting video in UHD 4K 3840×2160, but at the maximum resolution will be limited to 30 frames per second. But there is practically no rolling shutter. FullHD Resolution frame rate can be significantly higher up to 120fps. There is also a separate mode of increased frame rate, when this the rate rises to an incredible 1000 frames per second.

Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II

Rating: 4.7

CANON POWERSHOT G5 X MARK II

The third number in the collection will consider another “Shot”, but only already made by Canon, and it will be the Mark II PowerShot G5 series. If compared with the immediate predecessor, then this the model is generally not much like it. Mark II is quite redone and quite significant. And this is natural, since the difference between these two generations in time amounted to as much as 5 years, and during this time technology has stepped far forward.

Actually, from the previous “Mark” the most confident remained only concept. Mark II is the same compact with non-replaceable optics, similar in format matrix (1 ”) and generally flagship characteristics that directly affects the price. Yes, for Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II now on Russian trading floors will have to pay at least 50 thousand rubles. This is exactly the moment about which we spoke in the introduction to the section – not all “soap box”, which is compact.

The design of the camera is extremely minimalistic and strict. The form factor is as pocket-sized as possible. But with all the minimalism developers managed to fit in a small and already “stuffed” body full electronic viewfinder. It is made retractable and rises straight from the hull. It even turned out to arm the device 180 degree swivel LCD screen.

This model uses a multilayer CMOS sensor. Memory located on the same silicon crystal, due to which it was possible achieve a significant increase in the speed of the sensor by compared to past and some neighboring Canon models.

In its pure form, the shooting speed in terms of the RAW format and 20MP resolution is 30fps. When using a follower autofocus – maximum 8 frames per second. There is a mode preliminary shooting – in this case the camera constantly takes everything in a row that “sees” and copies to the buffer, waiting for the button to be pressed descent. This mode is designed for situations when a person physically cannot instantly respond to an event, much less this does not have time to make the camera on its own. Use of such the buffer allows you to “rewind” reality into the past for half a second. The powerful DIGIC 8 processor manages all these subtleties.

The camera shoots video in 4K resolution without cropping parts of the matrix at a maximum speed of 30 frames per second. FullHD speed can grow up to 120 frames per second. Zoom lens corresponding focal lengths from 24 to 120 mm at aperture from f / 1.8 to f / 2.8. There is optical stabilization. There are all necessary communications, including wireless Wi-Fi modules and Bluetooth USB-C charging with PowerDelivery.

Advantages

  • high-quality matrix;
  • retractable digital viewfinder;
  • pre-shooting mode;
  • shooting video in 4K;
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless modules;
  • USB-C charging with PowerDelivery.

disadvantages

  • short battery life – up to 230 shots, with viewfinder – up to 180.

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay

Rating: 4.6

Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay

And the final position in the review of the best new cameras 2019, the beginning of 2020 according to the magazine presents another extremely interesting model from Fujifilm. Already in the name of the Instax series some connection with the Instagram photo service is clearly felt. AND this connection really is.
