How to Choose the Right Camera for Landscape Photography: 8 Tips from Mark Denney (VIDEO)

Choosing photography gear is one of the easiest and hardest things you'll do as a photographer. It's easy because picking a new camera or lens can be a fun and exciting (though often expensive) experience. But it's also hard because there are so many photo gear choices out there, all of which are likely to put a big dent in your bank account.

Landscape photographer Mark Denney just went through the process of buying a new camera and in the below video he shares his tips on how to choose the right model for your photography. As it expected, it wasn't easy.

"If you're looking to buy your first camera, upgrade your current one or just purchase a second camera the process can be a bit overwhelming," Denney says. "I just went through it in order to add a second camera body to my kit and forgot just how confusing the process can be from the many brands, sensor sizes, options and configurations available. And the fact that cameras are such a large investment only adds to the pressure and confusion when it comes to making a landscape photography camera purchase."

In the below video, Denney reviews the eight questions he asked himself before deciding on the Fujifilm X-T3 as his second body for landscape photography.

"Answering these questions not only made the camera buying process easier, but it also enabled me to feel confident that the camera I ended up purchasing was the right one, not only from a price perspective, but also performance as well," he says.
