What is the best camera for night shooting?

For shooting in the dark, you’ll need a full-frame camera. Full-frame cameras have large, 35mm sensors that capture much more light information compared to their smaller-sized cousins. Unsurprisingly, they’re often more expensive, and they rank among the best professional cameras. Still, the super sensitivity of full-frame cameras is worth it for those who want to film moody, shadowy environments without producing noticeable grain.

There are a few camera models with even larger sensors, such as the medium-format Fujifilm GFX100 II, but their professional prices place them outside of most people’s budgets.

Is a GoPro worth it?

When it comes to action cameras, GoPro is king. Their waterproof, shockproof, and foolproof constructions are built to weather whatever you throw at them, and their camera specs are just as impressive. Some models offer resolutions as high as 5.3K at 60fps, and all the latest models feature GoPro’s HyperSmooth technology to eliminate camera shake and motion blur.

Some folks might find the brand’s flagship, the GoPro Hero 12 Black, to be a bit expensive, but the action-focused designs and hardware are well worth the price. Plus, with such a vast catalogue of different models, there’s a GoPro for every budget.

What lens should I get for action shots?

There are a lot of factors that go into taking quality action shots, such as shutter speed, autofocus, continuous shooting speed, and image stabilization. But lenses are often overlooked. Truly glorious action shots, such as football players mid-pass and street dancers mid-twirl, are almost always taken with a high focal length.

Anything around 200mm will offer plenty of zoom for most human subjects, while wildlife photography may require a jumbo telephoto lens reaching 300mm and beyond.

Many sports photographers shoot in aperture priority mode to make sure they can isolate their subject with a shallow depth of field. Thus, make sure your lens has a large maximum aperture of around f/2.8 to f/3.5. Anything larger on a telephoto lens may require taking out a second mortgage.

Why you can trust Pocket-lint to find the best Black Friday camera deals

I’ve been a professional photographer and filmmaker since the Canon 5D was the best you could get, and I started years before that with recording on to video tapes. Through countless successes and failures, I’ve learned what makes a camera great and what makes a camera stink. But there’s always room to learn, which is why I always collaborate with Pocket-lint’s team of fellow photography pros to ensure our recommendations are sound.
