For some photographers, it’s full-frame or nothing. And those photographers will probably never be convinced otherwise. The best non full frame cameras, however, are capable of doing some very incredible things that full frame cameras can’t. We’d know, because we tested them. Dive into this list with us as we explore the best non full frame cameras.
“At university, I found the instant gratification of playing in iPhoto with a Canon Powershot easier than carving out time and space for other outlets,” explains conceptual photographer Sydni Indman to the Phoblographer. “At one point, my allergies became severe enough to essentially render me a shut-in for months, so I studied the masters’ still-life and produced such pieces as ‘Laundry Basket Lid on the Floor.'” Sydni has always been into creativity and evolving from being a writer into both a photographer and a musician. In fact, she tells us that she draws most of her creativity from music.
Lots of photographers love the high-speed sync look. But I think we can all also agree that it’s getting kind of stale. Greener photographers call it the fill-flash look. And in some ways, it holds true. The point still is that we can all use flash to make the lighting in the scene look natural.

And in our tests, we found the XT4 to even have better autofocus. While the XT5 has better battery life and is both lighter and smaller, some of us might like the more durable feeling of a properly retro-styled vintage camera.
Though it’s their audio talents that entertain most of us, musicians need photos of themselves and their concerts too. The latter isn’t as straightforward as some of us might think. Here are some of the best music photographers we’ve featured across the years.
Lenses with wide views are hard to design and even harder to craft without fisheye distortion. But the Voigtlander 10mm f5.6 Hyper-Wide Heliar manages to cram a 130-degree view onto a full-frame sensor. And as a rectilinear lens, the Heliar does that without the typical fisheye distortion. Available in E-Mount or L-mount, the ultra-wide view …
If you have glasses and picked up a camera for the first time, congratulations. You’re about to begin a journey experiencing the fun and passion that so many other photographers have.

So if you’re photographing with glasses on, I will give you some important tips.
