Stealing the hearts and minds of photographers everywhere are mirrorless cameras, now emboldened with a series of fresh releases that have elevated their stature into the professional realm. This has made them prime targets for photographers new and old, with dreams of picking up a new camera soon. Here is a quick list of what B&H customers want most from the mirrorless world.
10. Sony Alpha a7S II
The most recent full-frame model from Sony, and a much-anticipated update, the Sony a7S II adds internal UHD 4K recording, S-Log3 gamma, and a Display Assist function that take the already excellent video-centric model to a new plateau. Also, it continues to leverage the low-light capabilities of the 12.2MP CMOS sensor for sensitivities up to ISO 409600, and manages to squeeze in both 5-axis in-body stabilization and an upgraded AF system with 169 contrast-detect AF points.
9. Sony Alpha a7R II
Revolutionary in so many ways, the Sony a7R II took mirrorless a step further, with a world’s-first full-frame back-illuminated sensor that packs 42.4MP resolution, a 399-point phase-detect AF system, and the ability to hit ISOs up to 102400 into a relatively compact camera. It also upgraded the video features of its predecessor in a major way by adding internal UHD 4K recording and the S-Log2 Gamma. Lastly, the a7R II redesigned the body with a more natural shutter release, a heftier grip, and an incredible EVF with a 0.78x magnification, as well as 5-axis in-body image stabilization.
