When you think of cameras as a professional photographer you are always thinking Canon or Nikon. Both companies have a very high standing in the market and both produce some pretty good cameras time to time. Canon has the 5D Mk III and Nikon has the D810. Both top of the range full frame cameras.

While those 2 companies are hogging all the market for pro shooters, Sony is slowly trying to catch up to them with a range of SLRs. The A7S when released was a camera that could churn out 4K video of the highest quality but also has a capability of 8K which means its future proof. But recently Sony released the RX100 IV, the RX10- II and the A7R-II.

Each of these 3 cameras have a bit of spunk in them. A7R-II is a full frame camera which shoots 29 minutes of 4K video and has 399 Autofocus points and ISO that reaches a cool 102400. The RX100-IV is powered with the world’s first 1.0-type Stacked CMOS sensor and shoots 4K video for 5 mins and slow-motion video upto 960fps which translates to 40x slower than normal. Both are priced at 11999 Dhs and 3699 Dhs respectively
