The 7 Best Cameras of 2021

It's been a great year when it comes to photo gear

Fujifilm X-E4

The Fujifilm X-E4 flew a bit under the radar when it was announced in late January 2021 but that’s mostly because it was overshadowed by the high-profile introduction of the GFX 100S. The Fujifilm X-E4 ($849) is a quality mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera nonetheless, and one any pro might pick as a second, smaller and more stealth body to have in your bag. The rangefinder-style X-E4 is also a great choice if you want to leave your heavier professional camera rig behind for a day of casual shooting. The X-E4 features the same 26.1-megapixel BSI X-Trans APS-C image sensor, Quad-core CPU X-Processor, speedy 0.02-second autofocus, and advanced color science that’s in the Fujifilm X100V, X-S10 and X-T4 cameras. But weighing just .8 pounds and measuring 4.77 x 2.87 x 1.28 inches, the X-E4 is the most compact interchangeable lens camera in Fujifilm’s X Series. Our colleagues at Imaging Resource recently posted their first test shots captured with the X-E4 and had this to say about the camera: “A much welcomed refresh…this new model maintains a compact and lightweight rangefinder-esque design with a built-in EVF and a sleek rectangular design. The styling of the camera receives several changes and updates, including a cleaner, more modern appearance, updated control layout, and a [180-degree] tilting rear [3-inch] LCD.” The Fujifilm X-E4 can capture 4K video at 30p and full HD at 240fps for slow motion capture. It has a 2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder and some with a signature Fujifilm feature beloved by film buffs: 18 film simulation modes including ETERNA, Bleach-bypass, and Classic Negative.

    1. The Z9 may be officially announced later in 2021, but it might not actually be in the public’s hands until 2022. When Nikon releases a photo of it and says the body design may change, that means they still have a lot of work to do.
