THE BEST MIRRORLESS CAMERA of 2018!

by birtanpublished on December 5, 2020

Hey guys what's going on Carl here back with another episode and finally getting to my major upgrades of 2018 I have finally bought a new camera two of them actually it's the new a7 r3 the best mirrorless camera app this year they're awesome so before we get into that there are some giveaway updates that I wanted to get around to finally we've got some winners from the Christmas holiday packed unboxing congrats I announce that over on Twitter and there's actually still an extra google home from that unboxing as one of the winners never got back to me so I will give this away on this video so

Just leave a comment whether it's on the r3 on the Google home or if you're just here to say what's up to me I'll respond also and I will announce that winner quite soon so best of luck all right mirrorless cam time I've had the a7 r2 for two years and it's been my go-to camera I've used it on every single one of these videos that you've watched I've carried this guy around and taking countless photos it has been my beast my go-to and probably the best investment that I've ever made as it's allowed me to create this very youtube channel and when the r3 just came out at

The end of last year I knew that I had to jump on the train and I bought two of them this guy as well as the guy that I am currently recording with right now so if you're just glancing at both of these they look very similar and that's kind of true the body hasn't really changed the r3 is slightly slightly longer it's a bit thicker and that's because it has a better battery which is my number one complaint on this guy I have gone through countless batteries I usually have 5 to 6 of these guys fully charged as say when I'm recording here in the studio they won't last over 45 minutes

And that was the biggest complaint we finally have a bigger battery on the r3 found in the a 9 and they have definitely lasted longer every time that I've gone out and shot with this guy when I'm on the street I have easily lasted the entire day and that is something that I could ever say about the mark – we have a new location for the video record button some of the custom buttons have been changed and we finally have a focus knob which you can dial in focus which is such a handy feature when you're out shooting and that kind of leads into the

Third Point which is autofocus which is once again being improved on the r3 so don't get me wrong the arts whose autofocus was good but it wasn't perfect there were a lot of times when I was hunting for focus as a person that's a one-man crew there's no one sitting behind the camera right now I definitely rely on autofocus especially for YouTube when I'm vlogging I had this guy on a little rig I need it to focus on my face and I found that sometimes this is where the r2 has failed and even in the short time that I've used the r3 the auto focus has been on point and I know pure

Video ographers out there will swear by manual focus but autofocus is a thing it's important and it's better on this year's model the electronic viewfinder has been improved it's brighter it's something that's come down from the a nine and one little thing if you guys end up grabbing this camera I found that on the r2 I didn't put a screen protector on it and since I'm always traveling with this guy the coating has kind of rubbed off and has made it look quite ugly so the first thing that I did on my r3 s was got a glass screen protector should help protect and make

It look nice and fresh even though we have these same 42 megapixel sensor inside there are some changes that make the overall quality better I find that Sony tweaked everything wrong with the art – and don't get me wrong it was still a good cam but they made things perfect for the r3 which should make it the perfect camera for most people out there it's a camera that does everything and it does everything so well and that's both in photo and video if you need a hybrid that handles both this is the guy to go to and I think it's the perfect tool for any content creator for

Anyone that's just looking to get be perfect all-in-one camera the video on it which is usually my go-to as I produce all of my youtube content on it it shoots in 4k max at 30fps and hasn't made it over 260 120fps slow-mo but when we're switching over to photo that high megapixel count sensor that's where this thing shines also and I've been taking way more insta pics and a lot of you always ask on Instagram what camera you use it's essentially this combo right here the r3 with the batis 85mm 1.8 I'd say 90% of my photos over on Instagram are with this guy I

Love it and another big question is why I didn't wait for the a7 s3 and that's kind of the same why I didn't go for the s2 I prefer having the versatility of having a stills Kim as well as one that's good for video I'm in a well-lit studio I don't really use too much low-light stuff and the third is the 35 mil crop which essentially gives you two focal ranges I usually go for Prime's on my cameras and I find having that extra one and a half times versatility and I don't think waiting for the s3 with the lowered megapixel count body would really have made sense for me and for

What I do here on YouTube and yeah I think that's why the r3 is the best mirrorless can bet you can grab in 2018 I have absolutely loved both of mine so far you can shoot 10 frames per second the five axis image stabilization has also been slightly improved which makes all of your handheld shots even smoother the autofocus is bang-on and it fits perfectly into one hand and that's the biggest thing for me for a cam that I travel everywhere with it needs to be portable I promised myself if it didn't fit in one hand I would never get a red

Camera I would never get a one VX mark – those are too bulky the versatility the portability of these guys is what made me fall in love with these and I can't recommend these enough and this is in no way sponsored by Sony they should though considering how much money I've dropped on these cameras I will of course leave everything mentioned in this video listed down below and maybe the last lens that we have is the 16 to 35 f/4 and maybe my next purchase is the 16 to 35 G master 2.8 and that should wrap up my gear crates for the next couple years I hope you guys enjoyed this video and

Found it somewhat useful if you have any other questions I will of course try to answer them down below in the comments and I will catch the rest of you in one of my next episodes or vlogs base
