2022 Cameras of the Year, with Kevin Rickert: The B&H Photography Podcast

12/15/2022Link0

For anyone seeking a new camera to gift or to hold this holiday season, we present the eighth annual installment of our Cameras of the Year episode. Featured in our discussion are 16 new cameras from Canon, FUJIFILM, Hasselblad, Leica, Nikon, OM SYSTEM, Panasonic, and Sony, presented in alphabetical order.

In addition to a detailed review of each camera on our list, we also discuss trends such as the shift from separate cameras for photo and video to a single camera geared toward content creation, recent advances in high resolution EVFs, the benefits of cameras with internal memory, an increasing prevalence of AI technologies, the continued relevance of Micro Four Thirds and APS-C models when full-frame cameras are shrinking in size and weight, and much more. Along the way, we even come up with some new terminology—Exit Level Cameras! Tune in for yourself and find out what it means.
