The Best Professional Camera in 2022

Find the best camera for your professional needs.

1. Canon EOS R5

As a stills camera, the Canon EOS R5 is simply Canon's finest product ever. It’s the perfect amalgamation of the EOS R’s form, the EOS 5D’s function, and the professional-grade autofocus of the EOS-1D X.

2. Canon EOS R3

A brilliant all-rounder regardless of whether you want it for stills or video. It switched on in just 0.4 seconds which makes it ideal for catching a moment on the fly.

3. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The Canon EOD 5D IV is still a pretty popular choice among professional photographers despite being released in 2016.  It combines a reasonably high-resolution 30.2MP sensor with decent continuous burst speeds and fast AF.

4. Sony A1

There's nothing this camera doesn't do incredibly well - but that comes at a cost. Overall, though, if you want a camera that can take on any possible assignment, this is it.

5. Sony A9 Mark II

Sony's sports camera is insanely fast and perfect for capturing fast-paced scenes. Until we got our hands on the Canon EOS 1DX Mark III, the Sony A9 II was by far the fastest full-frame sports camera we'd ever used.

6. Sony A7R IV

The highest resolution camera in the Sony line up delivers incredible details in images. The A7R IV is Sony’s new highest-resolution full-frame mirrorless camera, with a record-breaking 61 million pixels and yet still capable of shooting continuously at 10fps.

7. Nikon Z9

With 8K video capabilities and a record limit of 2-hours, it's an absolute game changer for Nikon. The Z9 comes in quite a bit cheaper than both the Sony A1 and the Canon EOS R3 and it has a lot of advanced features.

8. Nikon D850

Now five years old, the Nikon D850 is still an extraordinary camera. Whenever I was shooting fashion or editorial, the Nikon D850 was my go-to camera due to how easy it was to navigate and change settings and how beautiful the images came out.

9. Nikon Z7 II

Now with dual card slots this Nikon mirrorless is what the pro's needed all along. The Z7 II is Nikon's flagship full-frame mirrorless camera and an updated version of the original Z7.

10. Fujifilm X-T4

It still has the same sophisticated 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and the ability to shoot 4K but with an improved shutter and a new battery that lasts longer, Fujifilm has truly refined an already excellent product.
