Panasonic G85 Mirrorless Camera Review

2017-01-04-1483542585-3738057-P1010460_small.jpg
The Panasonic G85 takes the already amazing Panasonic G7 and brings it to the next level by adding 5 axis image stabilization, a weather resistant magnesium alloy body, and some new hardware changes to the mix. But these new features come at a higher price so let's see if this mirrorless camera is up to challenging some amazing DSLRs from Canon & Nikon as well as the mirrorless Sony A6300.

Sony a7SII Review - an Unpolished Masterpiece

 


The Sony A7sII definitely caught me by surprise. Only a few weeks after completing the review of the awesome Sony A7RII, Sony introduced another killer camera this time with internal 4k recording, in body Image Stabilization, S-log 3, a new 169 point AF system, and more new features to further separate Sony from the rest of the pack. So I’ve taken this camera through it’s paces shooting everything from weddings to landscapes to see if the A7sII is a worthy upgrade and if it's time you jump from the traditional DSLR to this mirrorless powerhouse.
