If there’s one thing photographers and videographers have been waiting on Canon for, it’s a decent 4K camera that won’t set them back thousands of dollars. Panasonic has several in the sub-$1,000 range, Sony has offerings in the low-$1,000 range, and Canon has two areas: under $1,000 with not great adoption, or over $3,000.

Today, Canon announced its EOS R Mirrorless System that packs 4K recording and a full frame sensor. Could this be the answer to a Canon shooter’s wishes? While this is a great camera, I don’t think it checks enough boxes to be considered the go-to Canon 4K camera just yet.

Nikon is normally a camera company related to wildlife photography and high-end DSLR cameras. Well, the company decided to change that today with the introduction of its first full-frame mirrorless camera.

Until now, Sony has been the king of full-frame mirrorless cameras. The A7-series that Sony offers is regarded as one of the best “all around” full-frame cameras on the market, garnering praise from videographers and photographers alike. Nikon seems to want a piece of this action and launched its Z-series of cameras today.
