Deliberating new digital camera

Filed under: General — Artflux at 1:01 pm on Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Shopping around for a new digital body for my leica lenses. Relying on what consumer reports reviews I an looking at the Sony cameras. The Fujifilm looks very much like my Pentex film camera that I think I still have.

The Sony A9 is a popular rental at New York’s Fotocare, so before purchasing one I think it might be a good idea to try one out as a rental.

Do I really need 48 MP? The cost is considerably different by several thousand dollars.

The newer Model Alpha a7R III is a comfortable size and the circumference of the lens opening matches my older leica lenses.

Then there is the FujifilmĀ  XT-20 at about $800. It rates just behind the Sony models on Consumer Reports. I’m holding back on making a decision for the time being. Instead I continue to use the Iphone 7-Plus along with photoshop and lightroom. The only drawback with phone photos is that there is limited depth of field.
