Sony launched the 42.4MP A7R III yesterday and Shutterbug was amongst a group of select media that got a chance to shoot with this new, full frame mirrorless camera at a studio shoot with dancers and performers, and then later at a nightclub with musicians.

Photographers and camera manufacturers do a lot of boasting these days about the high pixel count of their new DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. But how often have you heard anyone wax rhapsodic about the awesome dynamic range of a camera? Chances are, not very often.

You’d be hard-pressed to come up with three digital cameras more different from one another than the Canon EOS M5, the Fujifilm GFX 50S, and the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The first is an affordable, compact mirrorless camera, the second is a 50MP medium format mirrorless model, and the third is a big and powerful pro DSLR.

Many photographers are more than willing to pay a significant premium for the latest full-frame cameras, but does the difference in image quality as compared to crop-sensor cameras justify the extra cost? We don’t expect to answer this question here, but the six-minute video below provides an interesting take on the ongoing sensor size debate.

Micro Four Thirds (MFT) cameras have a devoted following because of their compact size, a wide variety of available system accessories, and the versatility they offer by letting you use older manual focus lenses with an adapter. That said, these interchangeable lens cameras are often criticized because their sensors are so much smaller than those in full-frame and APS-C cameras.

While some mirrorless cameras might be mistaken for a small APS-C DSLR, albeit minus the pentaprism bulge, Canon’s EOS M6 is more akin to a compact camera that can take interchangeable lenses, either the growing list of dedicated EF-M lenses, or EF and EF-S lenses with an optional adapter. (My tests were with the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM lens, f/3.5-22 at wide and f/5.6-32 at tele, with an equivalent focal length of about 28-88mm.)

There’s been growing anticipation of a new Nikon mirrorless camera, especially since the company’ Nikon 1 interchangeable lens mirrorless system with its tiny CX-format sensor hasn’t exactly taken the world by storm. And a recently published interview with Tetsuro Goto, Nikon’s Director of Laboratory R&D in Japan, makes it clear that “If Nikon will go mirrorless it must be full frame.”

Shooting three film types at the same time was an impossible dream back in the days of film photography. But today with my Fujifilm X100F it becomes standard operating procedure.
