Panasonic has been a strong player in the Micro Four Thirds arena, providing a number of cameras for that format, including its GH4 and GH5, which have become very popular with video makers.

While Panasonic isn’t abandoning the consortium, it is embarking on a new journey by jumping into the full-frame mirrorless market.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, Sony has taken a different path with its cameras, and that’s to build new features onto an exisiting body.

Sony’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera, the a6400, makes some improvements over its predecessors while retaining the same body shell. That works out well for current owners, as the transition to the new body will take less time.

The Nikon 1 line of cameras appealed to novice photographers with some of the later models introducing a few features to broaden its appeal, but the one-inch sensor was clearly a limiting factor in broadening its appeal among enthusiasts.

The Canon EOS R represents a concerted effort by the camera maker to provide photographers with a high-end camera.

The EOS R is a full-frame camera that arrives with yet another camera mount for Canon – the RF. Note that Canon was careful to not confuse its current users by making the name a variation of “EF.”

Rather than making huge strides in its technology, the Sony A7R III improves on what already is a very popular full-frame mirrorless digital camera.

And there is much to mention with this camera.

Like its predecessor, the A7R III uses a backside-illuminated 42.4-MP Exmor sensor with an ISO range of 100-32,000, which is expandable to 50-102,400. The sensor has no low-pass filter, which should yield sharper images out of the camera.

The X-E3 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor while increasing the pixel count of its APS-C sensor and adding the ability to record 4K video. There are other changes, as well, that seek to make the camera easier to use.
