Why choose the Canon EOS M6 Mark II

For the first time Canon is offering an APS-C camera that has not been too much crippled. To encourage switching to full frame they remove functions such as fast burst with electronic shutter. However, Canon does not seem prone to offer a high-end APS-C model with an integrated viewfinder. This camera is least suited to 4K video because functions and quality.

Why choose the Sony A6600

The A6600 lacks some very useful functions such as panorama mode, pre-shot and flash, but it has other advantages such as very good autofocus, rain protection, good 4K videos (6k downsampled ) of unlimited duration, and autonomy.

Why choose the Fujifilm X-S10

For the first time, Fujifilm is making video an asset and also add body stabilization in a compact format. Even if we go back to a more classic mode dial than the usual Fuji controls, we have enough configurable buttons and dials to control the camera according to our preferences.

Why choose the Nikon Z50

Currently Nikon offers only 3 APS-C lenses: the 16-50, a 24-70 F2.8 and a 50-250. SLR lenses can be adapted, so it is especially interesting for those who have previously owned an APS-C of the brand and already have a few lenses. For newcomers, it is attractive for its price, its ergonomics and the basic qualities of the photo, but it lacks features.

It is recommended that you read the camera's online manual before purchasing one to get a better idea of the experience it will offer. It is also important to consider in advance the lenses that you will use.
