5 Fixed Lens Point And Shoot Cameras For Professional Photographers

Photographer: Anthony Thurston

As professional photographers we demand a lot from our cameras: we need manual controls and the ability to tweak the settings to our liking, at the same time though, lugging around our professional gear all the time can be a pain.

It is the best of both worlds for when the thought of taking your 5D Mark IV or D810 makes you cringe.

Today we will be sharing some of our top picks for fixed-lens point and shoot cameras that give professional photographers the tools they need to be creative and capture images they can be proud of – even with our professional caps on.  Continue reading…
