Canon EOS RP

In our review, we said:

“There is a lot to like the Canon EOS RP. It’s a simple and fun camera if you’re more inclined to the world of automation. But even so, with the right settings and a bit of patience, it can be a great camera in the hands of someone who has a creative vision.”

Sony A7 MK II

In our review, we said:

“The Sony A7 Mk II seems to be built better than the A7, but indeed the same level of splash and dust resistance as the A7 is present. The camera overall feels very solid, and we took it out for a walk in the rain where it held its own like a pro.”

Pro Tip: If you pick up one of these Full Frame cameras and perhaps need a little inspiration to go along with it, we highly suggest getting your peepers into a good book. Bruce Barnbaum’s ‘The Art of Photography’ will help you see things in a whole new light. With the knowledge from this book, you’ll be able to create like never before. It’s available as a hardback and on Kindle.

Nikon Z5

In our review, we said:

“The Nikon Z5 is weather resistant. It’s rated to be just as tough as many of the company’s other cameras. Nikon’s mirrorless cameras are thankfully as tough and reliable as they get. We’ve taken it out in the rain and purposely let more moisture get on it. Despite this, the Nikon Z5 kept working. That’s fantastic to know.”

Nikon D750

In our review, we said:

“Combine this broad usable ISO range with a high-resolution sensor and this camera is a very capable workhorse for wedding photographers and studio work. It’s not quite the resolution monster that is the Nikon D810, but the sensor has more than enough megapixels to capture tons of sharp details and reproduces vibrant colors with accurate skin tones.”

Canon 6D Mk II

In our review, we said:

This image (below) was shot at ISO 6400 and I was able to print this photo at 13×17 with little evidence of grain unless you get very close. It’s beautiful and if that doesn’t prove anything to you then I’m not sure what will. On a computer screen, anything and everything can look good if you’re not pixel peeping. But printing? Oh man, that’s a different story.”
