Best Image Quality on a Budget: Fujifilm X-T30 ($799)

“There’s good news for those who like the image quality of the Fujifilm X-T3: you’ll also like the image quality of the X-T30. In 2018, we rated the X-T3 as the year’s best overall camera and many of its features are shared by the more affordable Fujifilm X-T30. This trickle-down tech includes hybrid AF and the same 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 Sensor and X-Processor 4 quad-core CPU. These position the retro-styled X-T30 to provide high quality in a small camera at a low price. Standout features are improved image quality at high ISOs and crop-free 4K video, as well as 10-bit log output when recording to an external recorder via the HDMI out.”

Best for Transitioning from a DSLR: Nikon Z50 ($860)

“When you choose a camera from a longtime industry leader like Nikon, you expect to get a camera that’s comfortable and easy to use. The affordable mirrorless Nikon Z50 is no exception. With its 20.9MP APS-C (DX) sensor, the Z50 isn’t winning any resolution competitions, but it’s no slouch for most users. What it is doing, however, is making it comfortable to capture quality images with good dynamic range on a camera that’s compact yet still feels familiar to those used to working with SLRs.”
