While a great deal is made of shooting with large-sensor cameras, for valid reasons, I thought it would be prudent to consider smaller-sensor cameras, especially in the ENG/camcorder form factor. All too often these cameras are overlooked, and they really should not be. The ENG camcorder developed from a need for an all-inclusive camera that was rugged and easy to transport, which dictated a camera body with integrated tape drive―now SSD or Media card―and a lens port so you can add the lens of your choice or, for an even smaller shooting
ZEISS lenses have long been renowned for capturing sharp, accurate imagery for still photo and cinematographic applications.

A return to form, but don't call it a comeback. The 2021 MacBook Pros are the refresh that Apple users have wished for since they first got their hands on the Touch Bar and butterfly keyboards of the last generation (I think it's now safe to say that most people didn't like those changes). Now, with added power from the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, the current MacBook Pro is easily the best laptop for video editors.

But what makes a camera a “vlogging-specific camera?” What did Sony do to address the unique imaging needs of a vlogger? And what other tools are
