The Best Mirrorless Camera

mirrorless-camera-fujifilm-x-t2-lowres-2024.jpg

After 70 hours of research and testing over two years, we think if you’re looking to buy a mirrorless camera with pro-level performance alongside image quality that bests most DSLRs, the Fujifilm X-T2 is the camera to get.

With a street price approaching $2,000 bundled with a lens, buying the X-T2 is a significant investment in your photography. But what you receive in return is a rugged, weather-sealed camera; best-in-class viewfinder; 4K video capability; and a sensor that delivers impressively clean, detailed, and color-accurate images even at its highest ISO settings. All this in a retro-styled body with a well-designed layout of buttons and dials for fast, intuitive operation.

In addition to the 40 hours we spent poring over reviews and test results for 13 different models in the previous version of this guide, we spent another 30 hours of research, including several days of real-world shooting with the X-T2 alongside our previous pick, the Fujifilm X-T1. As a result, the X-T2 is now our pick for the best mirrorless camera in the $1,000-plus range.

At this price, great image quality below ISO 3,200 is a given in a camera at this level, as is the ability to change camera settings and shooting controls without diving into onscreen menus. And because these high-end models are aimed at working pros as well as serious hobbyists, you can expect durable, metal camera bodies that can stand up to daily abuse from the elements.

What sets the X-T2 apart is its ability to deliver impressively detailed images even at ISO 51,200, a whopping 325-point AF system, 4K video shooting, a clever dual-hinged rear screen that offers the practical benefits of a fold-out articulating screen but with less bulk, and access to a fantastic and ever-growing lineup of XF prime and zoom lenses. On top of all this is Fuji’s impressive track record of improving camera features and functionality via ongoing firmware updates. So there’s a very good chance that your X-T2 will become an even more capable camera over your time of ownership.

The Fujifilm X-T1 was our top pick in a previous version of this guide. Its follow-up, the X-T2 bests it with a faster and customizable autofocus system, a higher-resolution sensor that excels at the top of its ISO range, dual SD-card slots, and 4K video. If these features aren’t relevant to your style of photography, however, the X-T1 remains a formidable camera. Image quality is still among the best of any APS-C mirrorless camera, its all-metal body can stand up to daily abuse, and paired with one of Fuji’s growing body of weather-sealed lenses, you can take the X-T1 out shooting in any conditions. And with a current price significantly lower than our top pick, the X-T1 saves you enough cash to add an extra lens to your kit.

Using the same highly regarded 24-megapixel sensor seen in Fuji’s X-Pro2, the X-T2 delivers outstanding image quality even at its highest ISO settings. The X-T2 can capture images at up to 8 fps in continuous autofocus mode—faster than most DSLRs—aided by Fuji’s most advanced AF system to date. A new dual-hinged rear screen gives you a wide range of viewing angles when not using the viewfinder, and 4K video along with a mic input make this the first X-series camera with appeal to video shooters. This weather-sealed all-metal camera body performs flawlessly in rough conditions, and the logically arranged dials and buttons make changing camera settings fast and intuitive. Dual SD-card slots give you the choice of either extended shooting capacity or real-time backups. Not to be overlooked is that buying into Fuji’s X-system gives you access to some truly outstanding lenses.

How to Choose Binoculars

For All Your Binocular Needs

When shopping for binoculars, you’ll discover wide price ranges on similar-looking styles. Understanding binocular specs, such as magnification, objective lens diameter and exit pupil will help you narrow down which pair works best for your needs.

Binocular Size

Binoculars come in a variety of sizes (defined by the objective lens size) for various outdoor pursuits. Here's a quick comparison.

Full-Size (common specs: 7 x 50 M, 10 x 50, 12 x 60, 20 x 60...)

Best for serious wildlife viewing and for use on boats. Full-size binoculars capture more light and perform better in low-light situations. They usually provide steadier images and a wider field of view, so they're great for bird watching, but they're too big and heavy for backpacking.

Mid-Size (common specs: 7 x 35, 8 x 42, 10 x 42...)

Best all-around choice for wildlife and sports use. While a bit heavy for backpacking, these binoculars balance moderate size and above-average light transmission.

Compact (common specs: 6 x 21, 8 x 25, 10 x 26...)

Best for daytime outdoor activities. These are the lightest, smallest binoculars for backpacking, but they’re less comfortable during extended periods of use.

Binocular Magnification Power

Binoculars are identified by 2 numbers. The numbers on binoculars show magnification power and lens diameter.

Example: 7 x 35 binoculars have a magnification power of 7.

A magnification power of 7 means that an object will appear 7 times closer than it would to your unassisted eye. For example, if you view a deer that stands 200 yards away from you through 7x binoculars, it will appear as though it were 28.6 yards away (200 divided by 7).

Be aware that binoculars with magnification powers greater than 10 amplify the movements of your hands, making steady viewing difficult.

Binocular Objective Lens Diameter

The second number used in binocular identification refers to the diameter (in millimeters) of the objective lenses (those farther from your eyes; those closer to the "object" being viewed).

Example: 7 x 35 binoculars have objective lenses measuring 35mm.

The diameter of the objective lenses largely determines how much light your binoculars can gather. If you have 2 binoculars with exactly the same specifications except for objective lens diameter, those with the larger diameter objective lenses will capture more light. More light means a brighter view, particularly in low-light conditions.

Binocular Exit Pupil

Exit pupil is a number that indicates how bright an object will appear when viewed in low-light situations. A higher number means brighter images. A large exit pupil also makes it easier to maintain a full image of an object if your hands move or shake.

Exit pupil size (measured in millimeters) is calculated by dividing the diameter of the objective lenses by the magnification number.

Example: For 7 x 35 binoculars, 35 divided by 7 equals an exit pupil diameter of 5mm.

In very dim light, our pupils can widen up to 7mm. If your binoculars have an exit pupil size of less than 7, then they are restricting the light available to your eyes. 7 x 50 binoculars offer an exit pupil size of 7.1mm—a good choice for nighttime viewing.

For low-light situations (dawn, dusk, within dense tree cover or while observing the night sky), models with a high exit pupil number (about 5mm or higher) are good options.

For daylight viewing, exit pupil size is less important. In bright light, human pupils narrow to roughly 2mm. All binoculars offer exit pupils that size or larger.

Binocular Eye Relief

This is the distance between each eyepiece and your eyes while the whole field of view is visible. Long eye relief increases comfort by allowing you to hold the binoculars away from your face.

The eye-relief spec is most useful if you wear glasses. Most manufacturers recommend that glasses wearers should roll down the rubber eyepiece collars before viewing; some exceptions do exist.

Tip: If you wear glasses, look for eye relief of 11mm or more.

Binocular Field of View

This spec tells you the width of the area (usually in feet) that you can view at a glance, 1,000 yards from where you stand. A wide field of view is best to find and identify objects such as birds. Usually a higher magnification power results in a narrower field of view.

Binocular Focus

Almost all binoculars feature a central focusing wheel that focuses both barrels on the binoculars at the same time. They also typically include a diopter adjustment ring that focuses one barrel independently of the other. This allows you to compensate for differences in vision between your two eyes.

The diopter ring is usually located on either the left or right barrel near the eyepiece.

Binocular Lens Coatings

Some of the light that passes through the lenses in binoculars is reflected away. This reflection reduces the amount of light passing through the lenses and causes the image to appear dark. To reduce reflection and ensure clear, sharp images, coatings are applied. Fully multicoated lenses reduce the most reflection and increase light transmission.

Waterproof and Weather-Resistant Binoculars

If you’ll be using your binoculars aboard a boat or on land during a rainy day, you’ll want to consider waterproof or weather-resistant binoculars.

Waterproof binoculars typically use O-rings to create a seal to prevent moisture from entering. Waterproof binoculars also prevent dust or small debris from getting in.

Weather-resistant binoculars are not fully waterproof. They are designed to protect against light rain but not submersion.

Fogproof Binoculars

Binoculars can be prone to fogging up when you move them between different temperatures, such as from the cold outdoors to the warmth of your home. Fogging is not only annoying, but can also be potentially damaging if moisture gets trapped inside.

To counter fog, binocular makers have developed methods for replacing the air inside the optical barrels with inert gas that has no moisture content and therefore won’t condense. This protects against fogging up of the internal lens surfaces, not the exterior ones.

Feel free to call or stop by to talk to our knowledgeable staff for all of your binocular needs.

Yet Another Post About My Issues With UV Filters

Yes, I’m sick of filter articles, too. But I come today not to educate you, but to mock others. Because yes, people continue to try to save a few bucks by putting a cheap filter in front of their $1,000 lens. And also because they buy what they think are good filters off of Fleabay or some used place and these filters aren’t what they think. This can particularly happen when you purchase a brand that makes different filters of differing quality.

How bad can it be, you ask? Well, today we’ll show you. Because someone had a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens that had been nice and sharp and then returned it because it suddenly got soft. They were kind enough to return it with their protective filter in place.

So the first thing we did, as we always do, was put the lens on OLAF, which is simply an array of collimated 5-micron pinholes. A good lens should show and an array of small dots or circles. But this lens showed an array of glaring star flare thingies.

We also even carry lights make specifically for the job of sensor cleaning to ensure you can see any small dust aspects on your sensor.

 

Micro finger cloths are also a must for every camera bag for quick cleaning jobs and ensuring that your LCD stays free of dust and fingerprints and the occasional nose print.

Get Those Prints....

Photos from your cell phone and low resolution photos may look great on your monitor at “screen resolution”(72 ppi or pixels per inch), put printing these images is likely to pose an issue.

The small file sizemake forfast downloads and is easy to share online and you can get a lot of images on a memory card, but photos taken on a camera’s ‘basic’ or ‘low’ quality settings don’t cut it when you want professional quality images for print publication. 

A resolution of 300 ppi is considered the minimum quality standard for printing photos.

If you are shooting for print output, capture your images at the highest quality setting your camera offers: High, Best, Fine.

This captures the shot using the lowest compression ratio or no compression at all.

Compression is how much of the potential information in an image file is discarded to keep file size down. 

You can always re-sample down (from more resolution to less) but if you interpolate up, you lose information and lose image quality.

Saving a photo in .jpg format allows you to choose a compression level, depending on whether better quality image or smaller file size is more important for your purposes.

Shooting at high resolution may also give you the option of cropping and enlarging a portion of your image later, retaining enough data for a quality print, even after tossing some pixels to the cutting room floor. 

You won’t get as many images on your camera’s memory card shooting at high-res but you can keep your creative options open by archiving your ‘keepers’ on CD or a back-up drive.

The industry standard resolution for quality photo output is 300 ppi. However, you may be able to get away with a ppi as low as 200 if the image is not too finely detailed, if it will be printed on low quality paper such as newsprint, or if it will be viewed from a distance.

 


 

The following formula can help you calculate:

 

    1    How large a print you can make from a digital image with a given set of pixel dimensions and a given resolution (ppi)

    2    What resolution a digital print will have printed at given output dimensions from a file with given pixel dimensions

    3    What dimensions–in pixels–your digital image will have captured at given dimensions in inches and at a given resolution

 

 

THE FORMULA:

Divide each dimension of your digital image (in pixels) by the print resolution desired (in pixels per inch). This will give you the largest print size (in inches) you can generate at that resolution.

 

Example: (1500 pixels / 300 ppi) x (2100 pixels / 300 ppi) = 5″ x 7″.

 

To capture an image of this physical size at this resolution, you would need a 3 megapixel (MP) camera:

1500 pixels x 2100 pixels = 3,150,000 pixels or approximately 3 megapixels

 

A 1 megapixel camera will yield a 3 x 5″ print at 300 pixels per inch (ppi)

(3″ x 300 pixels) x (5″ x 300 pixels) = 900 x 1500 pixels = 1,350,000 pixels or approximately 1 megapixels

 

A 2 MP camera will give you a ‘print quality’ 4 x 6″, a 3 MP camera, a 5 x 7″… and it would take a 7 MP camera to shoot an 8 x 10″ print quality image.
