In an ideal world, or, if I was granted the opportunity to have my own customized camera, these would be some of my ideal specs:
- Image stabilization
- Flip out screen
- No zoom lens
- Fixed lens if possible
- Shutter speed and aperture dials control on the outer body of the camera
- Rangefinder camera size
- Auto ND-Filter inside
- In-body flash
- Retro design if possible
- Reliable auto focus
When I take pictures in public, I want to be discreet as possible even when I’m asking strangers for their photos. I feel like a huge lens is not only heavy but incredibly intimidating.
While I could use a smartphone, I want high quality images and to be able to control the shutter speed and aperture manually. Alas, my dream camera is perhaps still years away but for now I’ll stick with my Fujifilm x100f
What’s your go-to camera? What do you look for in a camera?
I hope you’re well! 🙂
