What’s your favorite camera?

YourTechGuy says:

Nice video, but honestly even 20 dollar canon d300 with 40 dollar lens can outperform most phones

Well seeing your old episode. I thought you bought S9+ but you have S9 in your hand.

YouTube Girl says:

Truth we would all buy a Leica

Bello Alaba says:

please what camera do you suggest I get to be able to a shoot freestyle videos ?

starlyn says:

Does anyone have a recommendation if I have $500 and want a camera that also films? It doesn't have to be professional but just better than the average phone. I want to start an online business one day.

Maarten Blij says:

Between the Sony RX100 series and the Canon / sony camera's, there is a LOT of choice. Like, a lot a lot.

Bruno Abreu says:

Ok. I would do pretty much the same modification you have done to get the perfect camera. Guess what?! Back in 2015, Panasonic almost did it! With the GM-5, coupled with an Panasonic Leica 15mm you get pretty close the ideal camera.

BlazingSerenade says:

You don't need a DSLR to start shooting, just pick up a Diana off Ebay and start shooting

chemicalsam says:

Just get a starter canon kit

Yoan Mitov says:

Nowadays you can get an excellent (APS-C) camera for less than a $1000 (or 500 used). And good lenses don't have to cost more than a grand either.

Aleksander Sukiasov says:

I have bought Canon M50 + Neewer 35mm F/1.7. That's exact the same lens, shown at 4:43. Very happy with both camera & lens.

Jon Masters says:

You described a dream camera very similar to a Sony a6000/6300/6500. I've been rocking an a6000 since it came out and I am still very impressed by it.
