We choose a camera for travel and the holiday season 2019 – a compact, mirrorless, recording 4K video, with a viewfinder and built-in flash.
The winter of 2019 has ended, which means that very soon there will be summer – the time for vacations and travels. And from a good trip, I want to bring not only souvenirs, but also pleasant memories and share these memories with friends and relatives. And of course, the best way to do this is to show your photos and videos taken during your trip.
In the age of mobile photography, we are used to taking photos and shooting videos on smartphones in everyday life. But on a trip, a smartphone will not be the best tool for photo and video shooting, and here’s why: Continue reading
The optical viewfinder is good because it transmits the picture “as is” – without any embellishment, delay, flicker, etc. Since it is just a system of mirrors and lenses, it does not consume electricity, thereby extending the camera’s battery life. On the other hand, the mirror viewfinder has its drawbacks. In most cameras, it has a coverage of not 100% of the frame, but a little less – 95-98%. Because of this, unnecessary objects at the edges of the frame may fall into the frame and you will have to additionally crop the picture, slightly losing its resolution. The mirror viewfinder reflects a minimum of “service” information – shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation. It is impossible to make him show, say, a live histogram, white balance or electronic level. Because of this, there is an increased likelihood of a defective image due to an incorrect exposure level, white balance, horizon obstruction. To finally assess the correctness of the settings and framing, you need to take a test shot, tear yourself away from the viewfinder, look at the screen and, in case of an error, make adjustments to the settings. This takes extra time, but with proper experience the number of such takes is minimized. Continue reading
Common features: sensor, functionality and additional features
Despite the external differences of the three cameras, they received a similar functional arsenal and advanced shooting capabilities. Therefore, they have more common characteristics than it might seem at first glance. First of all, it is worth noting that all models have a 1-inch high-sensitivity CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20.2 MP, which provides optimal photo performance in the sensitivity range of ISO 125 – ISO 12 800. In addition, the new processor uses a DIGIC 6 image processor with a proprietary Canon HS system, capable of delivering stunning photo and video quality even in low light conditions. Continue reading
