The Problem Of Pixels


Go to top.

I found my family's old digital camera from the early aughts a few months back, and it still had the little promotional stickers attached to it that boasted its features. It had a whopping three megapixels!

It was kind of like going back and watching the first iPod launch as Steve Jobs says his 5GB music device is just the size of a deck of cards. Now, I don't know how many of you remember those first generation iPods, but they were like big, alien bricks of soap compared to the sleek designs that exist today.

Over a similar span of years to the iPod's development, the camera industry has become obsessed with that one statistic: the megapixel count.

An increase in megapixels is rarely a bad thing, but it's only one of a slew of variables that determine your overall picture quality. The reason it gets so much attention is that it's easy to quantify; it's a relatively small number that you want to be as big as possible.

But what do the megapixels actually do?

Well, a pixel measures two basic things: whether or not light is hitting it, and how much light is hitting it. When you stack those pixels tightly together, you can achieve higher resolution photos from the same field by having more nuanced contrast throughout.

The problem is a law of diminishing returns. As you increase your pixel count beyond 10 MP, the amount by which your resolution increases gets smaller and smaller.

What's worse is that an increased pixel count also decreases your low light performance. You ever enter a dark room after being out in the blazing sunlight, and you can't see anything until your eyes adjust? Well, pixels are like pupils with a fixed diameter, so if they're too small, they can't drink up light from a darker source.

All this is to say that, unless you're shooting high-resolution photographs for print advertisement with a bevy of professional lights and maybe even a couple of assistants, you don't actually need anything more than 20 MP. So, focus, instead, on these cameras' other stats.

What's In A (Brand) Name?


Go to top.

Reaching back into the film era, the two giants of the camera industry dominated the landscape and posed the same question from shooter to shooter: Nikon or Canon, Canon or Nikon?

Even then there were better cameras on the market, namely by Leica and Hasselblad, but they were often cost prohibitive for the vast majority of photographers. They still are.

In today's digital market, there are a few competitors keeping up with the big two by offering features that they don't. For example, Panasonic introduced 4K to consumers while Nikon and Canon were still perfecting their performance at 1080.

And neither Canon nor Nikon has a viable mirrorless system. Each company has tried, but you've probably never heard of the cameras–they were that bad.

Still, photographers tend to gravitate toward one of these two brands, especially if they're working professionals in still photography fields.

There was a time when Canon's 5Ds were the finest videography DSLRs in the world and Nikon was desperate to catch up, but Sony has come along with its a7 series and taken that corner of the market by storm.

Between Nikon and Canon, really, there's almost no difference. I recommend putting one in your hand and playing with it. Personally, I found Nikon's control layout much more in tune with the way my brain works when shooting, but then all my friends shoot Canon.

The Best Kind Of Camera


Go to top.

In the late 1960s, the only two people apparently not taking immeasurable amounts of drugs (or perhaps the only two taking enough of them) developed the first digital imaging technology using a CCD sensor.

Just six years later, Kodak had invented the first digital camera incorporating this technology, with a whopping 100x100 pixel resolution.

Sony and Kodak both chipped away at the concept for the next 15 years until Nikon came around with its E Series in 1991, a 1.3 MP digital camera that would kick off an engineering and marketing race that we're still enduring today.

Canon came to the party a little later, but since they had already established themselves as an imaging conglomerate in many more fields than Nikon, they were poised to sink more money into R&D, especially around the DSLR's potential as a video camera.

I won't spend too much time discussing the advent of the cameraphone and what that means for the future of DSLRs. There's an old saying in the camera world, though, that goes back to long before a digital image was ever rendered: "The best kind of camera is the one you've got on you."

#7.Nikon D750 FX-format Digital SLR Camera Body


The image quality of the D750 is great of course, just as it is when using the D610. Auto white balance works surprisingly well. Skin tones look nice and so does everything else. Highlight-weighted metering is an interesting option and helps to preserve whites that might otherwise be blown out.

#5.Sony a9 Full Frame Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera (Body Only) (ILCE9/B)


In one game-changing leap, the revolutionary image sensor and high-speed processing of the ? 9 reach performance levels far beyond the incremental improvements gained through decades of mechanical refinement. There is no viewfinder blackout. Continuous shooting speeds exceed those possible with mechanical shutters. Higher shutter speeds are available, and all without noise or vibration. The ability to keep an eye on moving subjects at all times leads to faultless AF and AE tracking, and the photographer’s view is consistently up-to-date with an absolute minimum of lag. In short, the digital promise has been realized at last.

#2.Sony a7R III 42.4MP Full-frame Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera


The 42.4MP high-resolution, back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor utilizes a gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor’s seal glass to dramatically improve light collection efficiency. This results in high sensitivity with low-noise performance and wide 15-stop4 dynamic range. No optical low pass filter maximizes resolution, while also having the ability to output 14-bit RAW15 format even when shooting in silent or continuous mode. Nothing less than spectacular images.

#1.Nikon D5 DSLR 20.8 MP Point & Shoot Digital Camera, Dual XQD Slots - Black


The D5’s niche is really sports, low light and moving subject photography. It’s fast frame rate, insane ISO range and ability to follow and autofocus on moving targets can’t be beaten. The native ISO is 100-102400 although I’ve never shot higher than about 12,000; you’ll see the artifact around 25k. If you’re shooting sports or news this can’t be beaten!
