Kaddr Awards – the Best products photo/video 2018

2018 comes to an end, and that means it’s time to sum up the results and hand out awards Kaddr Awards to the best products presented this year.

This time we will choose among these categories: entry level camera, lens years camera for shooting video, the innovation of the year, camera of the year camera of the year 2018.

Entry level camera
Canon M50

This camera combines a very compact body and relatively large APS-C 24 megapixel. It is Dual Pixel AF and a swivel screen that makes it not only a good choice for the novice photographer, but also for the blogger. And this is the first mirrorless company with the ability to shoot 4K video. And of course, all is not so simple, there is a crop in 4K not running Dual Pixel. In spite of this the Canon M50, in our opinion, deserves the title of best camera of initial level in 2018.

Lens of the year
Sony FE 24mm F1.4 GM

It is a professional full frame fixed lens surprised several qualities that are not usually found in one product, especially from Sony. It is lighter than comparable Canon/Nikon/Sigma 200 grams, more compact, it fit cheap filters 67 mm, and it is cheaper than Canon/Nikon. In this optical 24 out of 100% corresponds to the line G-Master – he’s sharp with the open aperture in the middle and at the edges with delicious bokeh and excellent resistance to light sources in the frame, including at f/1.4. Highlighting this lens among others, we as a hint the optics manufacturers that in a world ruled by a ball buttercake, we need these optimized for small camera lenses and want to see the trend for similar optical designs in 2019.

Camera for shooting video
Fujifilm X-T3

This camera for relatively little money simply space offers opportunities for video. There are 4K 60 fps 10-bit 4:2:2 external recorder, and 4K/60p 4:2:0 10 bits directly into the memory card. You can record videos in H. 264 or H. 265 for better compression. X-T3 can record the frames in F-Log. The camera is new sensor technology X-Trans, which allows it to shoot better in low light and a new autofocus system with eye movement. In General, for $1500, it’s just the best solution at the moment, for shooting video, even though not in the cell matrix stabilization and the screen rotates only up or down.

Innovation of the year
Canon RF 28-70mm F2L USM

Unconditional innovation of the year, we believe RF Canon 28-70 f/2L. This is the most high-aperture full-frame lens with a constant aperture of an incredible f/2 over the entire range. And Yes, we already saw a Sigma 24-35mm f/2, but there is too narrow a zoom range, which reduces its demand to zero. Here we have the almost standard range, fast and quiet autofocus, great detail with the large aperture, low aberrations at f/2, dustproof moisture-protection and build quality of the L series . We cannot fool physics, so the lens was huge, weighs almost 1.5 kilograms, on the front lens thread filters as much as 95 mm. This lens could not be cheap and a price tag of $3000 is quite reasonable for the uniqueness. I think he will find its use in wedding and General reportage photography, where time to change lenses and aperture is never enough.

Camera phone of the year
Huawei Mate 20 Pro

This is a logical development of the phone Huawei P20 Pro. Because the camera and the telephoto took it from him, but unnecessary many black-and-white camera was replaced by shirik. And it’s just awesome, because now you don’t need to take extra lenses for the phone.go to installit and one this phone can capture everything. The main features of this phone is the main camera with the largest physical size in the market, effective optical + electronic stabilization on the video and cool quality of shooting at insufficient lighting.

Camera of the year 2018
Sony A7 III

It came out in the beginning of the year, but that did not stop her to be more progressive than competitors ‘ products, released already in the end of August. Judge for yourself – it’s the only camera that combines a full-frame sensor with a matrix stabilization, wide DD, great job on the high ISO, hybrid autofocus with face detection and eye tracking working correctly when focusing up to 10 frames per second, with 4K video recording without crop and Slow-Motion in Full HD up to 120 fps, two card slots and kastomiziruet keys, which is not even close to can offer no one of the competitors.
