The Right Camera for Landscape Photography at Three Different Price Levels

The wonderful thing about landscape photography is that you can do it with anything from the most bare-bones, budget camera to the most expensive and modern options. If you are wondering which camera is right for your needs, check out this excellent video guide that will show you a range of great options for every price point, from under $1,000 to no budget whatsoever. 

Coming to you from DPReview TV, this helpful video guide will show you a range of camera options for landscape photography at three different price levels. It really is a fantastic time to be a landscape photographer. I never thought I would see the day that a brand new medium format mirrorless camera would be knocking on the door of the middle tier and competing with full frame options (the Fujifilm GFX 50S II), but here we are. On the other hand, micro four thirds cameras are highly portable and offer some of the most advanced and impressive computational features, such as Live ND and Live Composite. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

This is the new age of photography. All these internet photography experts can’t shoot. That is ok. I don’t play in the NHL but I know a bad play when I see it. You have to take the technical advice you are looking for and forget the images and the info you don’t need. You don’t have to be a good shooter to know a sharp lens or good camera interface.

Oh god, that is so true. These 'experts ' are so into the 'get the numbers right' that they have no idea how to....'get the shot right'

A phase one xt would be my choice of no budget limits. The rohdenstock lenses are far superior to the GFX lenses as well as the sensor
