Best cameras for all your requirements

Bloggers, take note: your camera is one of the most important tools you’ll use to document your adventures and experiences. 

But there’s more to photography than just snapping photos-you need a camera that can do all the other work for you too. 

Here, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite cameras for blogging and everything else in between.”

When it comes to finding the best cameras for blogging, we’re going with a simple solution: find one that fits your needs. 

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to cameras, but there are some tips and tricks out there which make things easier when deciding on which type or brand of camera is best for you.

For starters, you can think about what your primary reason for needing a camera is. If it’s to get great photos-which would be a good reason to invest in a DSLR or mirrorless camera-then you need to make sure it’s going to be able to shoot video. 

Until recently, the thought of going for a mirrorless system meant compromise on both video and photo quality. 

But nowadays, high-end mirrorless cameras are excellent performers when it comes to both video and stills capture.

Here are some best cameras for all your requirements-

1. Sony Alpha 6300

Sony’s all-around superzoom is well worth considering, especially if you’re not quite sure what your priorities are. With a 24-600mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.95-4.5 zoom range, the Alpha 6300 is an ideal option if you need to regularly photograph sports events or family holidays. 

There’s EFC (electronic first curtain), which helps the camera eliminate blur caused by subject or camera movement, and high-res 4K video, plus 5-axis image stabilization across the board in 4K and HD recording modes. 

It’s not cheap, but it’s versatile enough to take on just about any photographic challenge.

2. Fujifilm X-T2

If you’re more interested in video than stills, the Fujifilm X-T2 is a great all-rounder. It can shoot in 4K, and has an advanced autofocus system that leaves the older model way behind. 

You’ll find there’s a lot of room for creativity with this camera, too, thanks to its impressive range of dials, buttons and levers-and it’s weatherproofed to boot.

3. Olympus OM-D E-M1 II

The OM-D E-M1 has always been one of our favorite hybrid cameras because it does so much so well. It’s a great combination of a high-resolution sensor with a fast processor and a compact, portable body. 

The new Mark II version only improves on this further, with 5-axis image stabilization and a better AF system, which means it’s ideal for shooting sports and wildlife. 

It’s not going to suit everyone, especially when compared with the larger cameras listed below. But for those that want to zoom in a portable unit, there’s nothing better.

4. Canon EOS 80D

The 80D is another camera that does everything well from stills to video. It’s highly versatile and is built with the same body-on-a-chip technology as the 70D, which means you get better high-resolution picture quality and continuous shooting of up to 20fps (frames per second). 

It’s not the smallest or cheapest mirrorless or DSLR, but it is a powerful and powerful looking camera which is great for photography and videography.

5. Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5

If you want a camera that can do everything for you, this twin mirror system by Panasonic looks to be the best investment. It has a 20x optical zoom covering 28mm to 1200mm equivalent, but it also shoots 4K video at frame rates up to 120fps. 

It has some of the best low-light performance you’ll find on any DSLR or mirrorless camera, although its high ISO settings are a little grainy. 

That said, the DfD autofocus system is impressive, and there are loads of physical controls to get more creative with your techniques.

6. Sony Alpha A7 II

The Alpha A7 II is one of our favorite mirrorless cameras for still photography. But it does have its limits if you’re thinking about this for your primary blogging camera-which means it’s more suitable as a secondary camera. 

If you want to do video or shoot at higher magnification levels, though, this will do all that with ease. The A7 II has an in-body 5-axis image stabilization system, which is great for both video and stills photography, and can shoot in 4K at up to 30fps.

7. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The 5D Mark IV is a serious camera for serious photographers who want something reliable that can take anything they throw at it. 

It’s reasonably compact when compared with other DSLRs on the market, but this comes at a price when it comes to video capture. 

If you’re not interested in shooting moving images then the Mark IV may be the best option for you: it has a 20.
