Nothing stands still in this photography world of ours!

Canon has just announced something rather special, just look at the specification of the new R5 and R6 - concentrate on the R6 if you cannot justify the £4200 for the R5.

The main features of each are:

                                           R5                                          R6

PLUS: Canon has launched a new lens to complement the advanced features of these two cameras, namely the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM

Watch the video at either  WEX PHOTO VIDEO or PARK CAMERAS

In February 2016 the magazine: Black+White Photography ran a feature on some of the best small high-end compact cameras available at the time.

I have done some research on the current prices of cameras and found the following.

Identified as "Best for Portability" the Sony Cybershot RX100 IV.

The Fujifilm X 100 T was listed as " Best for Handling"  with excellent examples available from MPB. (For MPB in the USA go to here.)

Listed as "Best for Video" is the Panasonic Lumix LX100.

These are all very worthy cameras and even today, some four years later, they still produce results that are extremely credible.

This is a very cost-effective route into quality photography.

If I was looking for a new or a previously owned camera I would always go to both WEX and PARK CAMERAS in order to compare their prices and to look for their specific offers.

This is especially true in the current financial environment - so DO visit both, and gain from the benefits on offer.
