Ever since buying 5D Mark 3 and then moving onto Sony A7s, I have been collecting bits and pieces of equipment over the past few years to get that ever challenging goal of stable, cleanly focused DSLR video footage from my cameras when working on commercial and documentary projects.
Back in 2007/8 during my degree at University of Wales, I was lucky enough to work at Jessops branch in Cardiff. I will never forget weird and fantastic cameras that would come in stock which was impossible to give the best advice to customers which one to buy – some wanted ”pink camera”, some ”£50 wonder camera” while others were open to suggestions.
Of course, price was always a deciding factor in most cases, from cheap, budget, bridge and high-end cameras and meet customers who came from different backgrounds and with different photographic need from expensive to cheap compact cameras. While cheap compacts are no longer popular, more advanced compacts are still important.
