Fact: If you think you know how to use a rangefinder, you’re probably using a rangefinder camera completely wrong–or at least inefficiently. Lots of photographers think they can’t be faster than autofocus lenses on cameras, but the truth is, in the hands of a photographer that knows what they’re doing, they can actually be faster.
The Canon 77D Is for the Amateur Photographer That Doesn’t Think They’re Very Amateur But Not Quite Intermediate Yet
Today, Canon is introducing a few new products that have apparently been terribly kept secrets but also have been making some scratch their heads. To start, the new Canon 77D is supposed to live above the Canon T6s but below the Canon 80D. Why? Well, I’m sure that there’s a good reason if they’re literally creating a new line of camera for it. In some ways, you can imagine it as the two cameras semi-sort of smushed together into one and removing the weather sealing.
But perhaps more exciting is the company’s new Canon T7i or the Canon M6.
If you’ve even decided to click on this article then you’re probably aware of some of the frustrations some of your fellow photographers feel. Let’s preface this: four or five years ago you may have purchased a Fujifilm X Pro 1. Last year it was updated, giving it a sufficient four year life span. Now you want to upgrade, and you’re finding they’re still going for at a ridiculously low price brand new and only a few hundred used. But the newer cameras like the Fujifilm X Pro 2 costs around $1,699. Fujifilm isn’t exclusive to this: so too is Sony and the Micro Four Thirds coalition.
Now if you look at some of the film camera bodies, you’ll start to realize just how well they hold their value–especially if the system is still current.

The Fujifilm GFx 50S Next to the Fujifilm GW690 III.
DPReview recently spoke with Fujifilm reps at a recent event, who told the publication that there is totally a chance that a medium format digital rangefinder style camera is very possible. Why would this even be considered? Sure, Fujifilm has had the X Pro 2, but if you’ve been shooting photos for a while then you’re probably aware of the company’s very solid rangefinder cameras during the film days.
No doubt the Fujifilm X-T2 was one of the most widely acclaimed mirrorless cameras of 2016, and the X-Pro2, despite being for a more niche market, did well in its own right since launching around this time last year. It’s rare for brand new models to go on sale so quick, but that is exactly what Fujifilm is doing until February 18th.

These two options are manual focus only.
