We choose the best cameras that can be purchased for less than 5,000. zł. Which SLR or mirrorless camera should I choose with this amount? About this in our guide.
At fotoManiaKu, we recently recommended the best cameras for 2000 PLN and good cameras for less than 3000 PLN. This time we raise the price bar slightly, entering the territory reserved for demanding photography enthusiasts. We are looking for the most interesting cameras for 5000 PLN : SLR, mirrorless and compact. Some models in this amount are already equipped with good lenses, in the case of others we only offer the same body. Here are the cameras worth paying attention to with 5,000. zł.
Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II
One of the higher Olympus models. He's been around for a few years, but it's still equipment that offers a lot. The camera is equipped with a Micro 4/3 sensor, it can take 10 photos in a second in serial mode and offers good ergonomics. The screen is tilted and tactile, and the matrix is mechanically stabilized in 5 axes. The body is sealed and made of magnesium and aluminum alloy, the software offers many creative filters. In the film mode, we will record materials in Full HD 50p quality, as well as timelapse.
Panasonic Lumix G9
The Lumix G9 is a camera worth noting due to its versatility. The construction and ergonomics resembles SLRs. It has a wide range of buttons and knobs, there was also a top black and white screen with the most important information regarding selected parameters. In turn, the main screen is tilted and tactile, and the electronic viewfinder has a high resolution. The strong point of the camera is also the movie mode, which gives the possibility of filming in 4K at 50 fps . It is still a rarity on the market, only a few models can boast such a possibility, which deserves attention. In Full HD mode we get slow-motion. The 5-axis stabilization works well, and the camera has 2 inputs for memory cards. It is a fully professional tool for work.
Our list could not be missing from Fuji's offer. X-T2 is already on the nape of the neck for three years and he has a successor, and yet it is still a very attractive proposition. It is a full-featured camera whose ergonomics will satisfy fans of manual settings, as this model has as many knobs as old analog cameras . The equipment is equipped with an APS-C sensor, which has no AA filter, which guarantees high detail of the images. The camera offers efficient autofocus, fast serial mode (up to 14 frames / s with an electronic shutter) and filters imitating photographic films, for which Fuji cameras are particularly appreciated. The equipment also performs decently in terms of movie functions, offering 4K mode and Full HD mode with increased bitrates (up to 100 Mbps).
Some will say that the Sony A6500 is A6300 with a few "bajerami" added. And probably they will not be far from the truth. The fact is, however, that changes are important, although there are few of them. The A6500 is primarily a great equipment with great capabilities, with a very fast AF system, high-quality movie mode with 4K and slow-motion in Full HD and movie profiles, including S-Log. In addition to all these advantages, the camera offers features that were lacking in the A6300, a touch screen and 5-axis matrix stabilization . The touch gives us the possibility of convenient autofocus control, which is especially useful during filming. On the other hand, the stabilization allows you to film your hand when using glasses that are not equipped with optical stabilization.
Sony A7 II
This camera has its successor, the great Sony A7 III, whose capabilities are powerful and the price is very tempting. However, the second generation A7 mirrorless camera is still a very attractive option to buy. For just over 4,000 We get a professional camera with a full frame die. The equipment offers very high image quality and performs well in low light conditions. It carries a lot of opportunities for a full frame body, and at the same time costs as much as some much more amateur models. The camera also offers Full HD movie mode with 50 Mbps bitrate and has all necessary connectors, including microphone. Its undoubted advantage is 5-axis stabilization. Sony A7 II has a few years on the back of the neck, but it does not change the fact that it still offers great opportunities, and at the same time it costs very little – 4,000. for a full frame body is a very good price, and what will be left from the budget can be spent on a better lens.
Canon EOS 6D
A real classic among SLRs. This full-frame reflex camera debuted six years ago, but still enjoys great popularity, despite the emergence of a successor on the market. EOS 6D is a camera that has been used by many professional photographers and this is probably the best recommendation. The camera is used by many professionals, it can be used for professional applications, because its full-frame matrix guarantees excellent image quality. The camera also gives great ergonomics and has one more important element – a very strong battery . On a single charge, we can make even more than a thousand photos, which is a result unachievable to most models present on the market today. All this makes it an interesting model addressed to people who need professional equipment that guarantees good quality photos, reliability and long work – this camera will serve for years.
Sony RX100 VI
RX100 VI is the only compact on our list. Sony continues this series of advanced compacts with a 1-inch sensor for many years, and this model is its latest representative. As for a compact, the camera is expensive, but its possibilities are considerable. Its advantage is the lens with a long focal length range – 24-200 mm (converted into FF), and at the same time with a bright light f / 2.8-4.5. This makes it a very universal camera. The quality of the photos does not differ much from that presented by advanced cameras with replaceable optics. The camera also has a great hybrid AF system based on 315 phase detection points. In addition, he can film in 4K, and in Full HD offers slow-motion 120p. In film mode, we can use profiles, including S-Log. The camera also has a touch screen and all wireless features. It is really a professional tool, although its undoubted limitation is a small matrix.
