DPRTV: Best and Worst of 2019 Plus Drunken Shenanigans

DPRTV uploaded their best and worst of video today and it is much better than last year’s video, but still not quite as entertaining as their older Camera Store TV bit. I largely agree with their findings and I think many of you will too, but the GFX100 was robbed. So watch above for the show and read below for the findings:

Best Lenses

  1. Tamron 35mm f/1.4 – such a great optically fantastic lens that is even worth adapting to mirrorless
  2. Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 – Great breathing corrected lens for video
  3. Fujifilm XF200mm f/2 – 300m f/3.0 equivalent on full-frame proves Fujifilm is ready to compete in any market

Most Improved

  1. Canon EOS R – First great firmware update for EOS R that made the camera very capable
  2. Panasonic G9 – Huge new firmware update brought almost all the powerful video features from the GH5 at a great price point
  3. Olympus EM-1 Mark II – Got a lot of the EM1X features this year

Best Hybrid Camera of 2019

  1. Panasonic S1H – Packed with features and hard to beat
  2. Fujifilm X-T30 – Beautiful image quality that is basically a compact X-T3
  3. Leica SL2 – Very expensive, but fantastic for video and photos with stand out image quality

Best Camera of 2019

  1. Sony a7RIV – If you think with your head the a7RIV is a technical marvel for the price and size
  2. Fujifilm GFX100 – If you like image quality no other camera has ever come close to the GFX100, but it comes at a price
  3. Leica Q2 – The camera they had the most fun with this year has a great sensor and lens

Above I mention that Fujifilm was robbed and even Jordan agrees it should have been the GFX100. If you do not take price into consideration the GFX100 is a no brainer and it is the first camera that has caused me to basically liquidate my Sony kit. I will likely buy more Sony cameras when the a7SIII comes out if it lives up to the hype, but until then the GFX100 will handle almost 100% of my needs. In my estimation, Fujifilm and Sony are the future of photography and videography and everyone else is just trying to catch up.
