Mirrorless from APSC to Medium Format

The Latest Greatest 

Mirrorless cameras have come into their own over the last few years, as of the summer of 2018, there are four top cameras from three camera companies that you can see below. The first is Fujifilm’s X-H1 their latest APSC 24mp camera with 5 axis stabilization. The second is the newest Sony A7RIII also with 5 axes but with 42.4 megapixels of resolution. Then there are two 50mp medium format cameras one from Hasselblad and the other from Fujifilm.

The Smallest Options

If you want to shrink the size of your Fujifilm kit the comparison below shows how much smaller the X-E3 is than the X-H1 and similar in size to Sony’s A6500 APS-C camera.

A Survey of the Top Mirrorless Cameras

Perhaps a simple comparison between kit price and sensor size will show how Sony has managed with the A7RIII to position itself as the best value in terms of quality images and price.
