PHOTO BOMBS

Men's Journal - - GEAR OF THE YEAR 2018 -

While DSLRS have put up a good fight, their me­chan­i­cal shut­ters can’t keep up with a dig­i­tal mir­ror­less cam­era’s speed and abil­ity to shoot 4K video. Here are the cam­eras that upped our shoot­ing skills this year, clock­wise from top left: For the trav­eler, the Fujifilm X-T3 ($1,500, body only; fujifilm.com) is thin­ner and up to a half-pound lighter than the oth­ers. It ex­cels at aut­o­fo­cus­ing for shoot­ing ac­tion and reel­ing off a near-video-speed of 20 frames per sec­ond. If you’re look­ing for a mul­ti­tasker, the Sony A7 III ($1,998, body only; sony.com) has a 10-frames-per-sec­ond shut­ter, shoots 6K video, and has a bunch of great lenses to choose from. The Nikon Z 7 ($3,400, body only; nikonusa. com) retroac­tively adds sharp­ness to older lenses, has the eas­i­est user in­ter­face, and shoots crisp and color-sat­u­rated video. But when it comes to shoot­ing fast ac­tion, the Canon EOS R ($2,299, body only; usa.canon .com) is the best, with a body that works with older EF lenses, and the fastest aut­o­fo­cus (.5 sec­ond), which we used to snap crisp shots of sprint­ing cy­clocrossers.
