4 Fixed Lens Cameras You Can Actually Use As Your Primary Shooter

It’s easy for those of us with interchangeable lens cameras to look at fixed lens cameras with a bit of a scoff as we think to ourselves about how limiting and basic they are. It is true, for a long time fixed lens cameras were very much a staple of the consumer, and therefor less advanced, segment of the camera market. But for a while now there have been some great fixed lens offerings from several manufacturers which offer incredible performance in a small, and portable package.

These are cameras that can produce exceptional, professional quality images, with their only downside (if you see it as one) being their limitation to a single focal length and field of view. If you are someone who constantly changes lenses, or is constantly zooming, a camera like this may not be for you. But if you find yourself utilizing the same lens for long portions of a shoot, and that look happens to be covered by a fixed-lens camera we mention below, then you may just want to pay attention, because these are some killer cameras.
