These days, it’s harder to find a camera that will only do photography, compared to cameras that do both video and stills. Here are a couple new cameras that will get you excited to shoot, there’s only one DSLR in the mix!

Sony ZV1 (Or ZV-1)
Sony’s classic RX100 series has been repackaged into a similarly sized video-focused unit. On the photo aspect, it shoots 20.1 megapixel images up to 24 photos a second. For videos, the ZV1 will do 1080i at 60 fps and 4K at 30 fps. A first for Sony’s compacts, it now has a flip out screen that will also face forward. Paired with the 24-70mm equivalent zoom from the RX100VA, it’s a professional camera in a pocketable form factor.

 

Sony A7C
Ever since the mirrorless full-frame race has started, manufacturers have been trying to one-up each other with various goals of being the smallest and lightest. Due to be released in October 2020, this takes the title of smallest 35mm sensor camera with IBIS (in-body image stabilization).

 

Nikon Z50
This is Nikon’s first APS-C camera in the Z range. It’s an excellent mid-range photographic camera with video capabilities. It’s the start of crop sensor bodies in the Z range, hopefully soon bringing back the popular D3100, D3200, D3300, D3400, and the D3500 models but in mirrorless form.

 

Nikon D780
A successor to the D750, and the latest in the line from the D700. It’s an incredible all-rounder with great performance in both photos and videos. At its heart is a 24.5MP backlit CMOS sensor with phase detection. For photos, it can shoot continuously at 7 frames per second, or boosted to 12 fps in electronic shutter mode. It does drop to 12-bit though. For videos, it’s impressive for a DSLR. It can shoot 4K up to 30 frames a second. The D780 is the perfect upgrade for people with older Nikon DSLRs.
