You know what the least important part of a great photo? Equipment. The vision you have and the work you put into achieving it are much more critical.
This is not to say that the equipment does not matter, but that it is better to use it in the service of something bigger, not obsessed with. That’s why this guide doesn’t go too deep into the weeds of megapixel count, sensor size, and pixel detection. All of these cameras are capable of producing amazing images; which one is right for you depends more on your needs than the size of the sensor.
But choosing the right one can be confusing. I’ve spent the last year testing dozens of scenarios in all kinds of shooting scenarios to find what I think are the best choices for different types of photographers.
