FINALLY! I've tested the R5, A1, and Z9 in landscapes, travel, portraits, and wildlife and I'm finally ready to make my choice. Tony and I review the results of each test, the pros and cons of each camera, answer the questions you've had in the comments, and I announce my final choice.
Many photographers doubt their work and their talent and question if they have any right to be a photographer at all. DON'T GIVE UP! I'm passing along tips on how to change your mindset to become a better, happier, photographer and it's backed by research done by Dr.Carol Dweck. I read her book, Mindset, and distill her research into tips that can help every photographer become a long-time learner and a lifelong photographer.
The camera industry is changing, the photography industry is changing, and professional photographers are struggling. Tony wonders if it's time to say goodbye to a bygone era and laments a time when photography was booming and the industry was growing. Are the best years behind us? Chelsea argues that photography is more exciting than ever. Everyone has a camera, more people get to share their point of view and write history, and more people than ever can share and enjoy photos. Meanwhile, the camera industry has the coolest tech ever! Animal EYE AUTO FOCUS??? Amazing. We have cameras with 30 frames per second and cameras in our pockets that can do computational photography. Are times a bit tough for pros? For some. But others are utilizing the ubiquity of photos and videos online by expanding their skill into video work, drone work, social media marketing, education, and more.

We discuss the rumors, whether making a medium format camera in 2022 makes any sense, and what we think Sony might actually release.

Sony recently announced that they were the #1 camera manufacturer, above Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus, and Panasonic in several important segments... But their data tells only part of the story. Tony Northrup digs into WHY this is very important (something photographers using Pentax can totally relate to). He then analyzes several data sources, including BCN, Nikkei, and Google Trends, to determine who is really number one (for both all digital cameras and mirrorless cameras).
