For years I d taken the “bad mans Leica” jabs offered to me for utilizing Fujifilm. I neglected it because I felt individuals were paying more for the values, instead of the tech. But when I check out the review of the Leica M11 and did some individual research, I was blown away by the innovation of this camera. The build of the electronic camera is scrumptious, the color recreation is drool-worthy, and the sharpness is out of this world. Its likewise three video cameras in one, allowing photographers to contend 60MP, 36MP, and 18MP. I wouldnt mind trying that! Read our Leica M11 evaluation.

2. Dream Cameras: Nikon ZFc

While Nikon put itself back on the map with the flagship Z9, its not a video camera I would shoot with. Its too huge and not really for somebody who shoots my style. The Nikon ZFc, nevertheless, well thats a various story. I always wished to own the Nikon DF. I could not afford it when it initially came out, and by the time I could, I d already made the switch to Fujifilm. The Nikon ZFc blends mirrorless and a traditional construct. Its not the finest video camera, but I like the image quality. If Fujifilm didnt exist, it would definitely be in my hand. Read our Nikon ZFc evaluation.

But when the OM System OM1 came out, and the mass excitement featured it, the electronic camera piqued my interest. After speaking to Chris on Inside the Photographers Mind, my interest went into overload.
